  1. Brechin City v Falkirk

    That young man look slightly familiar....
  2. Brechin City v Falkirk

    He was getting dogs abuse for the whole of the second half from two of their supporters so when we scored he ran straight towards them. In fairness, they took it well. I was sitting about ten yards away and spoke to them afterwards. One of them said that if you give it out you have to take it so fair play to the guys. Tommy was buzzing afterwards. He gave them a big thumbs up at full-time.

    Jeezo, how old does Steptoe look on the extreme right of this image?
  4. Cove Rangers V Falkirk

    He was clearly tripped, but you're right about the booking. It was a stonewall penalty. Ach well, if these things even out then we're guaranteed at least one penalty at Ibrox, right?
  5. Falkirk vs Brechin

    I think the Foundation are having an impact too. I'm sure I heard somewhere recently that they have over a thousand kids playing with them now, all wearing strips with an FFC badge on them. I wouldn't know how many of those kids are growing up to be Falkirk fans, but when I looked at the folk on the terraces at Inverurie today, I recognised quite a few of them from various Foundation events. I also know parents who've have become FFC diehards since their children started playing with the Foundation youth teams. And that's not taking into account the excellent work that Sarah does with the Junior Bairns. You sometimes read complaints on the facebook pages that FFC put too much of their efforts into the community side of the club. And yet for me, those efforts are being vindicated when you look at how well our crowds are holding up. It's not the only reason our fanbase is so good but it's a large part of it. And on the subject of fans, fair play to the young team today. I thought they atmosphere they created was excellent.
  6. The Falkirk FC Thread

    I've asked that question myself and haven't had an answer so I don't think a decision has been made yet. I suspect it's something the club will decide once they know for definite which league they'll be playing in next season, along with things like contract extensions and pre-season arrangements. The unthinkable now looks much less likely than it did two months ago. However, I'd speculate that they'll want to be mathematically certain before making any commitments.

    The U20 league will no longer exist after this season. There will be a reserve league just like the old days,

    Nelson was injured. He was up in hospitality talking about it before the game. Nothing serious.
  9. The Falkirk FC Thread

    The eye-catching things about the statement are the words "cost neutral", and that's before we include transfer income. From that you could speculate that those who left didn't get much of a payoff, which almost stands to reason given that they all found new clubs quickly and often with longer contracts. Wage from new club for 18 months & reduced FFC severance for 6 months = win win for both players & FFC. You could also speculate that those who've come in are on lower wages than those who've left. It seems to have been a very good transfer window for us on all fronts.

    That's always possible. We brought in Tumilty and Longridge on 90-day loans so if Hartley saw a player he liked it wouldn't be a surprise if we did business outside the window.

    Not happening. No more signings before the window closes.
  12. The Falkirk FC Thread

    I'm a little surprised we haven't seen more departures from the U20 side as quite a few have their contracts up in the summer. Traditionally, we've let a few go out on loan over the years as their contracts run down, as it gives them a last chance to mark their mark somewhere else before we make a final decision on them. If I were a betting made I'd say that's the most likely movement in the next couple of days.

    The U20 League has been in a shutdown since before Christmas. There was a closed-door friendly a few weeks back but no first team players were involved in it. The U20 league restarts again for us on Wednesday night with a home game against Dundee.
  14. Hartley’s newbies v Sneckie

    The club have video analysis which shows a much wider angle than Falkirk TV. The players saw it after the game; when Aero came up to hospitality he said the video showed that big Peter played the Caley guy onside.

    I think if he reads the original post Fortmartine will take six off us.
