  1. See a trend here, apart from the one loss last year the wins are getting bigger. Soon be able to match this https://www.scotsman.com/sport/football/falkirk-fc/fergies-real-worst-ever-7-1-blitz-airdrie-1656330
  2. Murray? Already starting to rapidly fade in the memories. Wonder if he has any thoughts along the lines of "have I made a mistake" yet.
  3. Well at least Falkirk are in a playoff place, pity it is at the wrong end of the League
  4. Is the venue still Firhill? According to the PTFC website they are starting work replacing the Firhill pitch after their last home game, no mention of the playoff fixture(s)
  5. Always was of the opinion that Jim Duffy is one of the biggest fuds in Scottish Football, would love to be able to ram those words in his face. Remember when Dunfermline were a Billy big baws Premier League side and a certain wee team from the league below paid then a visit? http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/scot_cups/4584864.stm
  6. You're just fooling Cove so that the think they just need to turn up next week then give them a solid pumping
  7. Err, you would play the Pars in the Semi Finals, shows how long it has been since you made the playoffs
  8. Why Sharks Circle You Before Attacking... Two great white sharks swimming in the ocean discovered survivors of a ship that just sunk. "Follow me son" the father shark said to the son shark as he led him to the mass of people. "First we swim around them a few times with just the tip of our fins showing." And they did. "Well done, son! Now we swim around them a few times with all of our fins showing." And they did. "Now we eat everybody." And they did. When they were both gorged, the son asked, "Dad, why didn't we just eat them all at first? Why did we swim around and around them?" His wise father replied, "Because they taste better without all the shite inside!"
  9. Till Death us do Part (Even though it was actually highlighting the absurdity of ALf Garnetts racism) Mind Your Language - (had just about every racial stereotype you could think of) It Aint Half Hot Mum - (racial slurs, homophobia) In fact just about any sitcom made in the 1960s/70s
  10. Unfortunately even if things go our way this could come down to goal difference, and Cove are twelve ahead of us on that, we would need to really start winning games by substantial amounts.
  11. Noticed his managerial statistics with Falkirk were the best of his career - 63.6% win rate, think you would be happy with that right now.
  12. Up until the Ross County Debacle, every time there was a managerial vacancy at Airdrie there was a call for a return of the playing legend that was Owen Coyle as Manager, since then I think most Airdrie fans have decided that he wasnt that good as a manager, his statistics would suggest that he has been on a decline with every team he has managed, and also has a habit of bailing out when the going gets tough. The table on Wikipedia makes interesting reading - Falkirk fans would bite your hand off for a win percentage of 63% but look how it has consistantly fallen with each club, to a miserable 18% at Ross County. Even in India it has been average. I wonder if Sandy Stewart will be by his side again??

  13. Still going, but not the same good traditional pub it used to be.
  14. Move the Kelpies to the Falkirk Stadium, after all you get Horsed there most of the time
  15. And the year after that............ You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave
  16. Except when Livingston and Sevco get demoted
  17. Think you should be asking the club what being full time means, are they actually being employed as full time footballers. last time Airdrie tried it the players spent more time on the golf course than training, result was a similar situation of being beaten by part time outfits, often by late goals.
  18. I hear that Metalist 1925 Kharkiv might be looking for players soon, perfect place for him, give him a wee cardboard gun too!
