  1. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Loy had played well pre season and played well until he got crocked in the opening game of the season. Ive never seen such a turn a round in form from a player since Tony finnigan got replaced by his brother in the Lambie debacle season. Its really difficult to fathom out what could've happened to him in such a short space of time. I mean the one thing you could never fault Loy for in his first stint at the club was effort . He used to run his arse off whether he was playing well or not. To score 20 goals in a season when he was mainly playing up on his tod or supported by Phil Roberts was an achievement in itself. It wasnt as if he was woeful at Dundee he did well when given the chance and at St Mirren he did well. I cant understand how suddenly its all gone wrong. At 29 he should still be at the peak of his career.

    The loy signing campaign was just about as bad as the 'our time' one. 'They say you should never go back. Your feckin right on that one Rory 'wouldve been more appropriate.

    A UK government spokesman stated that 'the matter of falkirk underpaying an employee by £495.51 had been brought to their attention by a R.McArthur from Dunfermline'.

    I think that pretty well backs up the fact that it was dunfermline and shiels that went crying to the sfa about the whole thing. Football is getting turned into a right namby pamby sport both on and off the park unfortunately. As for mckee i wouldnt be surprised if he was first accused of saying one thing and then brought in people to back up the fact that he actually said something else more in line with the usual abuse spouted between footballers. They then thought well thats not very nice so we better still ban you .
  5. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Ok are we now saying that there's levels of abuse that you can have about someones eye? If the issue levelled at mckee was because he was abusing Shiels eye then why does he only get 4 games and O'hara 8? If he was simply as some have said slagging off Kenny Shiels then why should he be banned at all. week in week out you get abuse regarding that kind of pish in a lot of sports and hee haw happens. I admit I dont know what exactly was said but I'm struggling to think of anything that would deserve a 4 match ban.
  6. The Falkirk FC Thread

    We've had hippo banned post match for diving . I can't remember another case of this ever happening in the lower leagues and lets not pretend that it doesnt happen week in week out. We've also had two players banned for abusing another player/players father which again happens week in week out. As I have already said O'Hara probably crossed the line although theres been a lot worse said than that over the years but how does he get an 8 game ban and McKee a 4 game if the abuse was regarding the same thing? If it wasnt and was simply McKee slagging off Shiels dad then christ almighty a 4 game ban for something like that that is so common place in football is totally farcical and should now see players being banned left right and centre over the next few months.

    Its obviously okay for players and management to brawl on the floor and at the side of the pitch at games these days but if you slag someone's faither off you get a 4 game ban. Football has clearly lost it completely.
  8. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Ok O'Hara went over the line and was correctly punished although 8 games is way over the top. Their taking the pish with McKee though. If his abuse was about Shiels eye then why only 4 games and if it was about his faither then why is he even getting banned at all as that kind of pish goes on week in week out in football. We really should be appealing this one whether you think having Mckee out the side is a bonus or not.

    Mcghee signed for a year with an option for us to extend it. I'd be very surprised if that isnt triggered in the summer. Austin needs dropped back to the u20's to get his confidence back up. At the moment its rock bottom and he couldnt score in a barrell of fannies.
  10. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Looked like he'd seen a ghost.
  11. Its always about getting the right balance in the team something we've badly lacked since the start of last season. How good did mark kerr look when he had vaulks along side him doing all the running whilst he did the simple things. Kerr looks half the player when paired with players not willing or able to cover the park like Vaulks did.
  12. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Just shows you how far backwards we've gone. 2 seasons ago we finished above them in the league . Their now 3rd top of the spfl with a very similar squad to the one they had then whilst we're second bottom of the championship.
  13. The Falkirk FC Thread

    I reckon McGhees best position might actually be right back if he ever actually gets the chance to play there.
  14. Utd v League One Favourites Falkirk

    I'm only looking at the stats mate and I'd say we were on for a hiding whether he went off or not. As soon as Mcghee isnt at left back we leak goals. Whether its gallacher in the team to repalce him or not.. Its as plain as 7 goals in 2 games when hes not been playing there compared to 1 in 5 when he has . That suggests its pretty important that we keep him at left back and cover injuries in a different way surely .
  15. If Mcghee is at left back it'll be nothing each. Otherwise 2-0 morton.
