This kind of sycophantic pish is killing ffc, where is the fire and brimstone anger at inept management ?bairnadon wrote:He has also made some good signings & I dont know any manager who doesnt make poor ones (even Sir Alex!!)Brian Scrimegour wrote:The question is will we still have a club to watch by the time he gets his act together. In my opinion hes very lucky that the clowns in charge of our club stupidly gave him a 3 year contract or he might have been out on his ear. His signings have been no less than shocking this season Taylor apart. A club in our situation cannot afford to have new signings being freed in the case of haworth or not even making the bench in the case of leahy and the boy fae ayr who seems to have disappeared off the face of the planet. Pressley has pished too much money down the drain this season and should've been bulleted for his complete failure in that area.
Yesterday we had the best attendance in Div 1 (without any away support worth talking about) and more than St Johnstone in the SPL. Yes I know it was 'only' 3,100 but it is all relative & many clubs would love to get that at the moment.
I remember in the late 70's early 80's when we were in the bottom division (& took 2 or 3 years to get out !!) with crowds down to 1,200 / 1,500 - dark days indeed !! but we survived !
& if we are in trouble there are many worse off.
I am not daft enough to think that everything is rosy but getting rid of an energetic & committed manager is not the answer - be careful what you hope for!
I have always supported Falkirk through thick & thin - & always the club is bigger than any individual.
Personally I enjoy seeing the many young players coming through to the 1st team at the moment & think we are lucky to have so many talented youngsters - I have always been a 'glass half full' kinda guy & after the disappointment of losing to Dumbarton look forward to beating Livy on Wednesday (hopefully!)
Expect the Unexpected (never has a phrase been so true!!) & COYB
Happy New Year to all Bairns fans.
It seems its meek acceptance of mediocre pish or just walk away as you know its pointless trying to force change like the old days.
Apathy all round it seems, no wonder mind you. If the club has zero ambition then not much point the fans having any is there ? Thats how its looking these days.
Might as well just shut the gates and give it up, a club like us with no ambition makes us no better than the dross at the bottom of div3 happy just to exist and hope for a big cup draw.
