John Lambie

A time to concentrate on his playing career for Falkirk when he made over 200 appearances and was well liked. Wrong manager at the wrong time unfortunately.

Yes, a good solid player for us.
No. 8, I think.

I'm guessing he's died. Shame if he has, undoubtedly a decent manager at some teams just not with us.
Is your child hyperactive; or is he perhaps a twat?

Chopper Lambie. As a full back, no prisoners were taken. As a player, he gave us 100%. His time as a manager is best forgotten.
I will choose to remember him as a Falkirk player, not as a Falkirk manager. There’s no denying his success elsewhere though!

Came in to the managers job at completely the wrong time for us. That he left a safe job in Maryhill, showed the depth of feeling he had for the club.
That it didn't work, & the outcome, is probably regrettable on both parts.
Can remember his Accies side that left everybody trailing, back in 86, when we struggled to come 2nd & his Partick sides were always a thorn in our flesh.
Love him or loathe him, he'll still be remembered.

I dont think there would have ever been a right time for him to manage Falkirk. Partick and Hamilton suited his style of management down to the ground.

What does that mean?
Our soccer samba skills too good for him or something?

His spell with us was utterly catastrophic, of that there's no doubt, but given the right circumstances there's no reason he could not have been as useful for us as elsewhere.
