He has.

Twitter FFS.

He signed for Fleetwood about a fortnight ago.

St. Johnstone want him to compete with Mannus this year as Steve Banks who was their no.2 retired to take up coaching, prob why QoS signed the boy Thomson as Saints were unwilling to let him go back out on loan, would take him but would be very surprised if it happened.

If we really must sign Liam Craig (why?!?!?!) then I hope we are pulling the p1ss a little with our offer. It could only have been a year or so ago that he moved into his house - he'll be keen to keep it local/central belt I'd imagine.
If you're committed enough, you can make any story work. I once told a woman I was Kevin Costner, and it worked because I believed it.

Not really impressed with the message on the website.
It smells a bit of desperation and trying to placate the fans with the bulk of the script being about Season Tickets.

"Falkirk fc would like to remind the large number of knicker wetters in their support that the season doesn't start tomorrow and there's plenty of time to make new signings" would've been a more accurate message for our fans :wiggle:

I think the message was put on the site as fans kept on commenting on their posts/tweets about signing players. Doesn't say when we'll sign them, could easily be another week or so. I think it was used just to appease the fans.

Indeed. I have peed my pants twice this week already.

No complaints about Liam Craig if true. A decent left foot and takes good free kicks and pens.

Cannot understand this signing (if true), as we are awash with slow midfielders as it is. We need two strikers, another defender and keeper more than our 5th or 6th midfielder. Fuxsake. Craig is completely uninspiring signing, although I quite like him as a guy/player. He owes me a place in the pie queue from the cup final against Sevco, or Rangers as they were then.

Sorry, two different teams mate. One was Glasgow Rangers, the other 'the' Rangers International. The former even having a vote on allowing the latter's acceptance into Scottish football. HTH.
No financial regulation, no corporate governance, no enlarged divisions, no summer football, no single ruling body, no new cash, no integrity. Behold the 'bright new dawn' for Scottish football,

as I've said elsewhere, if we're signing free midfielders, I'd rather we went for Paul Cairney than Liam Craig. Think Cairney has a bit more to offer

Not quite,

Rangers were Rangers, a football club incorporated in law. Their holding company was MIH. Then they died.

Sevco, an incorporated football club, were magicked out of thin air, and Rangers International is their holding company. Sevco subsequently changed their name to Rangers in a crude attempt to convince gullible types they are the same club.



But, aye, looking forward to our 2-8-0 formation next season. :?

agree with most about Craig. Hes decent enough and comes across well but hes not the type of signing we need. We've already got Vaulks, Kerr, Taiwo, Smith, Cooper, Sibbald, Alston and Blair in midfield. If we were to sign a midfielder then a right sided winger or playmaker was what was required.

He'll no doubt be on a decent wedge as well. Quite disappointed in this.

On the Liam Craig rumour I would be in favour though not wildly excited.

We are too nice imo and Craig would give us a wee bit of aggression / nastiness.
