Just absolutely vintage Falkirk that at a time where most were desperate to see the back of him we get stuck with him, and now that we're on a decent run of form and he looks like turning it around we look set to lose him.

 

I reckon a few posters on here will be delighted but I will keep the bunting in the loft until I see who our esteemed board replace him with.

St Mirren.... worst of the lot, full of nasty moaning faced fuckers who dont go to watch their team but to shout abuse at anyone, their own players, opposition, away fans, linesmen, referees, police, stewards, a pretty vile lot who love nothing better than complaining about players giving them the cupped ear goal celebrations, away fans flags or songs even when they are not sectarian, play in a shitey wee fucking lego set ground with shite views and no pubs nearby and supported by a load of foul mouthed petty torn faced b*****ds.

Getting to the SC Semi-Final and rid of him in the space of 7 days sounds too good to be true.

Looks like he's been reading the Coventry Telegraph. When asked if he's got a good source, he replies "Yes if it's true, No if it's not". And he's based in the States.

You go into ALDI and just look around? You actually go into a supermarket with no intention of buying anything just to look around?

Are there no fucking cinemas in the Highlands? What the f**k is going on up there when men spend their free time wandering around looking at tinned beetroot?

Wouldn't be surprised. JJ is fucking raging at what's going on at DAFC, and rightly so. He and the players as well as the rest of the staff are being treated like shite by the club.

 

 

 

Anyway, there must be a shortage of pishy brown shoes in Coventry.

Would be a risky move for Pressley, Coventry don't look too stable at the moment.

"Fairness is a word not often quoted in the current situation. However, I think it is worth reminding everyone that when Falkirk FC were faced with provisional liquidation in 1998, the new consortium of owners paid every creditor (including the Inland Revenue) in full, i.e. 100 pence in the pound. If we had gone down the route taken by many clubs since then, paying only a fraction to their creditors, we would have had the resources to accelerate the development of our stadium and make an earlier return to the SPL." -Martin Ritchie

I saw on Twitter that Alex Smith is the likely to be the interim manager until the end of the season if Pressley goes.

This slightly softens the blow of the prospect of the new manager bounce on Saturday which could pretty much end our title challenge.

Well, if the keyboard warriors are to be believed we'll have crowds of 7000+ for all our remaining home ties.

 

Unless of course the new guy hasn't won the Champions League, wears an odd colour of trousers or once looked at them a bit funny from the tv screen - then the dignified boycott and internet whining will continue.

My grudge is with Ritchie so Pressley leaving won't entice me back.

Unless he makes a footballing decision when replacing Elvis and not a money saving decision.

Phil Brown has just given an interview to The Sun, after being snapped by their photographer handing over a large brown envelope to Martin Ritchie outside TFS.  He told the reporter it was his CV he was personally delivering, and that if appointed manager, he would make Falkirk the 3rd Force in Fife.

I'm not sure if its a bit of Stockholm syndrome kicking in, but I'd quite like him to stay for the moment. Were in a decent run of form and we've just reached another Major semi-final. At this time we need some stability at the club. In a strange way Elvis leaving could scupper any hopes of beating Hibs. Especially if they then leave Smith/Crawford/McFarlane in charge. But then we'd be short in our management square formation so maybe we'd have to hire a random bloke in a track-suit to make up the numbers...

Yeah, move to a much bigger club for much more money and a much better job.
