  1. Ignoring for now the disparity in treatment from the governing bodies towards your club and mine and ignoring the fact that at every possible opportunity you lot rally against the footballing authorities and denounce them as cheats and liars here is how I see it. Airdrieonians folded. We are not Clydebank despite buying their club (and importantly league membership) as Clydebank are alive and well in the juniors. We play at the same stadium as Airdrieonians. We play in the same diamond jersey as Airdrieonians. We have (an increasingly small) number of the same supporters as at Airdrieonians. When people can be arsed we have the same songs as Airdrieonians. We do not have Clydebanks history. We do not have Airdrieonians history. Even if we manage to change the club name to Airdrieonians as some people desire, we will never be the same Airdrieonians. We are a new club. You are a new club so fucking suck it up and get on with it.

  2. If we are going into past tense with other clubs its only fair to mention the level of loyalty your team's supporters showed before the summer of 2012. You also forget the level of loyalty shown by other supporters for clubs like Dundee, Ross County, Livingston, Stranraer and more all who rallied round got organised to help their club when things were looking bleak, where were the thousands of Rangers fans that could have saved Rangers during Craig Whyte's reign, where were the loyal then?. Just because a certain club has 10 or more times the support of all other Scottish Clubs bar Celtic it doesn't mean their support is in any way more loyal than supporters of say Montrose or East Stirlingshire. I think there is also more chance there is thousands of so called Rangers fans who never go to games either regularly or at all, maybe some have never actually seen Ibrox with their own eyes but would rather sit at home on the sofa watching the big game with their finger in their arse. I will say with certainty that there will be a higher percentage of fans of the smaller provincial clubs that actually go to their teams games than not go at all compared to both Rangers and Celtic.

  6. My friend stayed in halls in 1st year with a girl from Orkney and one night they were having a few drinks when she got a call from her dad who was originally from Bo'ness. My pal managed to convince her to put him on the phone and proceded to sing, "Bo'ness fair's a fucking gala day". Her dad was absolutely seething and threatened to get the first ferry to mainland and come and sort him out

  7. In my own experience the most Unionist clubs (in a Scottish context) are, in descending order: 1. Hearts 2. Celtic 3. Rangers 4. St. Mirren 5. Airdrie Everyone below that is much of a muchness, really.

  8. Falkirk sign ex-Rangers player Alex Ferguson as Manager. Queen's Park 31 (15) St. Johnstone 37 (19) Dunfermline Athletic 89 (66) Rangers 41 (25) Falkirk 95 (36) Ayr United 24 (9) Total 317 (170) Falkirk Football Club is a Scottish professional association football club based in the town of Falkirk. The club was founded 1876[2] and competes in the Scottish First Division as a member of the Scottish Football League. The club was elected to the Second Division of the Scottish Football League in 1902–03, was promoted to the First Division after two seasons and achieved its highest league position in the early 1900s when it was runner-up to Celtic in 1907–08 and 1909–10. The football club was registered as a limited liability Company in April 1905 (Falkirk Football & Athletic Club Ltd.). Falkirk won the Scottish Cup for the first time in 1913. After 1945, Falkirk was promoted and demoted between the Premier and First Divisions seven times until 1995–96, and during the 1970s spent three seasons in the Second Division. In 2005, Falkirk was promoted to the Scottish Premier League (SPL). Falkirk won the Scottish Cup again in 1957 and came second in that competition in 1997 and 2009. The club was relegated to the First Division in 2009–10 after spending five successive seasons in the SPL. As a result of its performance in the 2009 Scottish Cup, the club qualified for the inaugural season of the UEFA Europa League in 2009–10. Falkirk has won the second tier of Scottish football a record seven times, an honour it shares with St. Johnstone. It has also won the Scottish Football League's flagship cup competition, the Scottish Challenge Cup, more than any other club, which it won for the fourth time in 2012. In its early years, Falkirk played at three venues: Hope Street, Randyford Park and Blinkbonny Park. Between 1885 and 2003, the club was based at Brockville Park, built on the former Hope Street ground. After the creation of the SPL in 1998, its strict stadium criteria – to which Brockville Park did not conform – were enforced, and the club was denied promotion on three occasions. The club's present home ground since 2003 is the Falkirk Stadium, a 9,200 all-seater stadium on the outskirts of Falkirk. Welcome To Falkirk Fergie!

  14. Yup and that is all that is sinister about WATP despite claims of sectarian, goat-shagging KKK supremacy and Loyalist exclusivity. Folk who support Rangers ARE The People. Folk who don't aren't. Hate to use yet another cliche but there is actually nothing to see here.

  26. Couldn't happen to a nicer fellow; FOOTBALL legend Gordon Smith has revealed that losing his job at Rangers was the "final straw" that forced him into bankruptcy. The former SFA chief executive, who stacked up £644,411 of debts, has spoken openly about the strain of his financial problems and admitted he had already lost his house to pay off creditors. His £500,000 family home in Newton Mearns will soon be sold and he said he was asked to leave his job as director of football at Rangers without any pay off. Mr Smith, 58, said: "I have been living with this problem for more than a year. I tried my best to avoid bankruptcy. This was the last thing I wanted. Everything was going well for a spell and I didn't see it coming. That's why I suffered. "I was continuing to manage to cover my debt but losing my job and income at Rangers was the final straw. "Rangers asked me to go. I never received a penny. I didn't ask for money. I felt it was the right thing to do. "All this has shown me that the love and support of your family is more important in life than money." The father of three said the worst thing had been knowing his children wouldn't benefit from the assets he hoped to pass on to them. Smith also said he had learned who his true friends were. He said: "Now that my friends have been made aware through the media the responses and support I've received have been incredible. I haven't moved on but you never know what's going to come along. I'm hopeful I'll turn things around."

  27. I don't see what use a strong man competition would be to footballers? Murray must have a gruelling pre-season regime for them in that case.

  34. Portsmouth have had an offer accepted by Falkirk FC for Kris Faulds, the young centre midfielder is not part of Ferguson's plans this season and Ferguson has said " I have accepted this offer as I believe Kris will come back a lot better and hopefully with a few games under his belt he can push on and try to get in the squad next year. Later on in the day, Kris accepted the offer and will play his football at Pompy this season, we wish him all the best.

  35. Alex Ferguson has won his first game in charge of Falkirk, however it was only a friendly between his first and second team. Fergis was delighted to see his team so many goals with ease. Man of the Match

  36. From a football fan's point of view I can see why Flood leaving does leave a bit of a bitter taste in the mouth. I did think 'hang on a minute, did we not give your career a leg up a couple of times when nobody else was giving you a chance?', and to see him move to Aberdeen isn't great, but from a personal professional point of view he has made the decision that's best for him and you can't blame him. I love my job and love the school I teach in but if someone told me that my salary was being cut but that another school was willing to give me a big payday to move to them I would be out the door in a shot, and that's in a career that will hopefully last 35 years not a footballers (Flood has maybe 5-6 years left?). It isn't anything about loyalty it's about looking after yourself. I won't be booing him or anything, always think that is just a little bit sad when fans do that. United have managed to save probably a couple of grand a week because of this, and that is the important bit, its the way it has to be.

  37. When I read his interview I was also pretty miffed with his description of the club and his choice of words could certainly have been better. If he has been left hanging though and not even spoken to by the club to put him in the picture about what the situation is then that is very, very poor and makes it a little more understandable due to frustration and uncertainty. I think the least Murray could have done was told him whether he had (A) no chance of a deal, in which case look elsewhere, (B) a possibility of a deal depending on how budgets play out, but no guarantees given or © here is your offer - take it or leave it. To do none of these is treating a long serving player pretty poorly. While he hasn't been all that great in the last couple of years I still think he deserves some form of communication and kept in the picture.

  38. Surprised a few folk are mentioning Big Bang Theory. Watched a few episodes on a flight and bought the boxset after visiting the studios where its filmed - I think it's pretty good. How I Met Your Mother nowhere near as good but nowhere near the worst. There was a show on a few years ago based in a circus with Amanda Holden playing the main character. It was as bad as it sounds.

  39. What do you expect. Rangers were the biggest and most successful club in Scottish football, exploiting sectarianism, hatred and violence along with Celtic to cheat all the other clubs. The liquidation and death of that club and the birth of a brand new tribute act club is bound to generate a lot of interest.
