  1. The Falkirk FC Thread

    It’s not really, Shotton and Deeside are generally a bit of a dump so it’s only interesting if you enjoy steelworks and the view of a Power station....
  2. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Thanks for this. I probably should have used the word ‘alleged’ as I normally do. I take your points as I am sure you are much closer behind the scenes than I am, but I do think it’s fair to say that comments were being made that big changes were afoot in the New Year, and the suggestion that players were not being told pretty much meant that many of them could draw early conclusions. Indeed I think the majority of us on here were able to easily predict the majority of those who were leaving and it does appear from your comments that little was being done to discourage those concerns or encourage improved displays. Why do you think there was no lift in performance when Hartley first came into the club? Remember Alex Smith had two games in charge and managed to get enough out of a failing side to muster two wins at that time. As I said I do want Hartley to succeed but I remain concerned re some of the actions that he appears to be taking. It’s not in the best interests of the club to making anymore rash decisions (e.g. managerial change), imo.
  3. The Falkirk FC Thread

    I haven’t given up on him either but I do think his arrogance means that he’s making a lot of mistakes...and big ones too. Examples such as telling the players in November last year who’s staying and going meaning that some players downed tools, so we did not recover as quickly as we could have. Or somehow believing you can put an entire team together from scratch and get them not only to gel immediately, but that we could somehow win the league. I personally think that his success from January onwards went to his head a little and he thought he could now shunt virtually everyone at the club prior to his arrival, and build a totally new team without recognising that you should build gradually around a spine of players already there. These are all points that I made on here months ago and I see nothing to change my mind so far.

    Great to see us win a game. Hopefully a small boost for players confidence if nothing much else. Really delighted to see both the arse cheeks Colts punted out early doors, yet again making a mockery of their continued inclusion. To put our result into perspective though, Annan Athletic pumped Celtic U21s 4-0 tonight, perhaps showing just how far we need to climb to be competitive in this league. Still great to see Hartley start with a positive formation and with players like Haber to come in, still hopeful we can get something against the journeymen. The comments re how slow Harrison and Dallison are, give me the fear though when I think Stephen Dobbie....
  5. Dumb Tactics vs Dumfries Queen

    The worry to me is that he blamed the players for not doing as they were told. Therefore he may well still believe if he drums it into them it will work. I sure hope he gets the message that it won’t.

    Aye, ok, we’ll all go to the Colts game tomorrow night then.....
  7. The Falkirk FC Thread

    First professional goal for a young lad...and he was more the solution than the cause of our problems on Saturday. Let him celebrate a big personal moment ffs.
  8. The Falkirk FC Thread

    So you’re definitely going then?[emoji16]
  9. The Falkirk FC Thread

    If our target is the playoffs, I agree. However we have given hot favourites Ross County a six point start which there’s little likelihood already that we will close.
  10. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Don’t disagree with much of the sentiment, but surely the point here is that it’s Hartley and the board that are delusional as winning the league this season was the stated objective......
  11. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Honestly. I haven’t seen anything in Lewis so far that suggests he’s any better than O’Hara...
  12. Partick VS Falkirk

    We had at least three serious opportunities to score in the second half and the balance looked a lot better after the changes were made at the interval. However, we have to consider that Thistle took their foot off the gas. It would have been really interesting to know what would have happened had we started out that way though...
  13. The Falkirk FC Thread

    On the basis of the two performances to date I haven’t seen too much by the way of individual quality so far to say that if they are played in correct position we’d mount a challenge. Irving looks potentially special, and Froxy and Greenwood have some nice touches. We’d maybe see something good from Haber, but that’s about all...
  14. Partick VS Falkirk

    FFS. Mate, do yourself a favour and stop embarrassing yourself....

    I tend to avoid many of these outdoor events in Scotland nowadays due to the loutish behaviour of so many idiots. Sounds like nothing’s changed. Shame, lovely place and I used to live 5 mins walk away....
