  1. The Falkirk FC Thread

    White shorts. White socks. End of. Last season’s mess of a strip was entirely appropriate for those wearing it.
  2. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Personally I’d add McKee to the Deadwood Stagecoach out of town; hard to see what he offers now.

    I'm not surprised!
  4. Walking Down The Halbeath Road

    Seems like a very odd signing. He was truly awful against us last season; not just anonymous in midfield, but actually awful, and looked totally past it at this level. A pretty lightweight midfield of Craigen & Flood could see you boys in bother next season (hopefully).

    very, very moist...
  6. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Yeah, sceptical is fair enough RB; this is the SFA/SPFL we’re dealing with after all, and over the years there’s not much been done for the good of all (as opposed to the best for the few).
  7. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Of the many, many outrageous OF decisions to go against us, the one that VAR would absolutely have resolved in our favour was in the famous Jimmy Gilmour game at Parkhead...Falkirk leading 1-0, 10-15 mins to go, Celtic had to win; Roy Aitken and ref Dougie Hope conspired to give a penalty against us with the worst, worst piece of blatant cheating by a referee I can recall in a match. The supposed hand ball (which hit Jim Kerr on the back as he jumped up against a cross from the wing) was at least 3 feet outside the box, as can clearly be seen on the match highlights (still on youTube). But, the game's at Parkhead, and Roy wants a penalty, the home fans want a penalty, so after a brief spell of haranguing the ref - voila! Roy gets his penalty... Home fans are happy, Roy is happy, so everything is alright with the world, and natural order against a diddy team is restored... Sorry, no - it was an utter travesty; and there are plenty other examples, sadly. Fair to say I'd be pretty happy to see the use of VAR to put a stop to that sort of OF bias, so bring it on.

    That away strip is just awful and you guys are right about the badge issue. The really annoying thing for me is a much more general point; here's yet another manufacturer that thinks because they're dealing with a "diddy" Scottish club that they can feck about with design with impunity. You can bet they wouldn't dream of trying that sort of cheap look with Spurs. Or Wolves. Or Derby. Or ...etc etc. Don't buy it, that may send a message the manufacturer will understand. But on the other hand, they probably just won't give a fcuk.
  9. The Queen of the South Thread

    Our Saturday away game in Dumfries has been a traditional full weekend jaunt for a number of years now; as that game is particularly special for you chaps, it would be nice to make a proper acknowledgement of the occasion . Both teams in 100-year-old-style strips, knickerbocker shorts and all. Flat caps, big rosettes and wooden rattles on the terrace. At the end of a thrilling 3-3 draw, all assembled retire to The Globe Inn for pie and a pint.

    Did James Sharp also come to us from Hartlepool?
  11. Walking Down The Halbeath Road

    I’m actually glad “heid’s gone” has signed on again for you lot too. He’s def made his own contribution to the atmosphere in recent times, albeit panto villain as far as we’re concerned, but I’m all for a feisty match with a bit of an edge between us. It’s what this fixture thrives on! Looking forward to booing him again already. Booooooo

    :-) Sterling work Mr B, sterling...
  13. Walking Down The Halbeath Road

    never really got used to seeing you lot in a faux Newcastle strip, always thought the black pinstripe was your classic look. Its somehow disappointing when you turn up in Falkirk wearing some alternative garish red or purple costume - there’s no colour clash after all.
  14. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Rumours and wage speculation/fantasy aside, would be v. happy to hear that Lindsay is the calibre of player Hartley is trying to recruit, rather than lightweight fidgets from the Houston era.
  15. First the new strip launch at the seaside, and now Portillo looming large on the horizon like a psychedelic grim reaper... Ominous signs for the prospects for Season 18/19 for The Flatulent.
