  1. Yup and happily eating humble pie right now. Clearly his best game for us. Looked a different player. Would love to claim reverse psychology with that one! But he needs to perform like that more often, he's shown today that he can be effective, positive, and assertive. Keep it going and I'll happily sing his praises.
  2. He had two one on ones with the goalie and was embarrassingly awful with both. What better chances is he likely to get? Nah, he's just not up to it. No strength or physicality in a challenge either. Bin.
  3. How Alegria got a contract at the Govan filth is a complete mystery. The fan that took the crossbar challenge looks a better finisher.
  4. Williamson a completely different player today, not just his stunning goal. Happy to eat humble pie! Him and Morrison need to reproduce that though, having shown they have it in them, and do it against better teams than Peterheed ( ie everyone else in the league). Bampot referee, or maybe high on drugs; the foul given against McCann was utterly mind-boggling. Alegria is utter horseshit. Pathetic in front of goal, and minter South American theatrics. Get him tae feck back to the Govan tax cheats and give auld Jean his jersey.
  5. I am getting really close to hoping Williamson gets injured - nothing serious; hamstring, broken nail - and Hetherington gets lost on his way to the stadium, as the only hope we have of McGlynn not continually picking these utter wasters.
  6. Oh good god. How exactly does McGlynn think that's a winning combo? Best we can hope for is that Yeats can take a decent corner; other than that, Falkirk 0 ...
  7. By the same circumstances I was in The Jungle at Parkhead with my Celtic supporting flatmate when Jimmy Gilmour scored the late winner that kept us up... Forever grateful to my flatmate who immediately pinned my arms at my sides when we scored and my "feck!! FECK!!!" cries of jubilation were drowned out by the "feck! FECK!!!" cries of seethe and bile all around. A happy day.
  8. Not disagreeing with your take on it, I wouldn't know, but IF we only get in one more body then it could be 3rd or 4th at best for me, based on the 2 home games Clyde & Montrose. Clearly Donaldson, Mackie, McGinn & Yeats are a massive improvement, but we really badly need minimum of 3; a RB (Williamson is woeful, actually embarrassing for a supposed athlete); a creative midfielder; and a striker with a bit of presence/height/pace (realistically, someone like Ugwu)... Morrison, Nesbitt and particularly Hetherington still not producing nearly enough for us to actually win games, rather than not lose as often, or indeed as heavily, as last time out. As McGlynn said post-Montrose, we've actually been on a decent run in terms of results & goals not conceded, so if that doesn't give confidence to some of the under-performers - who couldn't accurately pass the ball the length of themselves on Saturday - then you wonder what will. Saturday at Airdrie will be a big test...
  9. Would say this is pretty fair. FWIW looks to me at the moment like Airdrie have better overall balance than the rest of us right now. Would have them shorter than 7/1, and certainly shorter than Kelty. Dunfermline look like a better attack, but (apparently) a weaker midfield; we have a better defence but a woeful attack. Wouldn't have us as favourites at this stage either. Loan market is clearly ultra-crucial to everyone!! Gonna make 17 September a fair indicator of our respective chances... (Wasn't it ever thus between us).
  10. Edit to add just googled him for some, any, info - he's not tall is he? Not going to get on the end of many crosses (Farid style) from Kai Kennedy or Callum Morrison. So, reviewing the straw clutching scenario, maybe McGlynn sees us playing with a John Baird type striker. That turned out ok for Raith, and us.
  11. Was thinking similarly. And just to add to the straw-clutching, everyone on p&b knew all about Farid when he signed up. Where is the magic coin anyway? Let Alegria carry it around for a couple of days... then pass it on to Jaime Wilson. Now that really is straw-clutching.
  12. He also needs to actually beat his defender more often; if that's what gets him frustrated, that he loses the ball far too often, far too easily, then I share his frustration.
  13. Hopefully he'll be oot the door before any warm-ups. He's a liability.
  14. OMG I feel ancient. Yeats looks about 12. Happy he's signed up though, fingers crossed he can build on his Killie showing against the rest of L1. Not going to be the dominant physical presence we need though, so needs plenty support - on the pitch, and from the stands.. Good luck to the lad.
  15. Falkirk lacked a whole host of things last season, and one of them - in every single area of the pitch - was presence. Right through the spine of the team, we were far too lightweight, no dig, no energy, no effing heart. Sounds like Ugwu would at least be competitive, and that would be a welcome - and long overdue - change.
  16. Hopefully working that DU connection for McGlynn to bring someone in on loan...
  17. Wasn't he in the home tech area at the Killie v Arbroath title showdown?
  18. I thought Williamson was shocking last Friday. Looked nothing like a professional athlete, lacking in every dept. Total liability.
  19. As many have said 14 in midfield looks promising, & Mackie looks well comfortable. McCann & McGuffie linking up ok, but feck me Williamson is gash. Looks like Bambi on ice.
  20. Have to say the white shorts ruin it. Why are lots of teams seemingly getting this so wrong? Falkirk's navy navy and more navy effort is depressingly dull, and so far that's at least ours, DA, Alloa, ICT, Cove, Ayr, Partick all with new monochrome strips that are drawing mainly negative responses. Do I remember it correctly that this trend in fcuking up traditional team colours came from a FIFA directive for the USA World Cup?
  21. At least the blue looks like a proper shade of navy blue, and no sign of any pin stripes, or patterns with tyre treads, swirls, diagonals, hexagons, sparkles, etc etc...
  22. Nevin was a lightweight fidget. Fukim, the wee pseudo-intellectual avocado-eater.
  23. first 4 words are the giveaway. Too lightweight, too ineffective, too similar to too many others, too feckin meh. We need shot of all these soft as shit non-entities we've endured for far too long. Harsh but true. Oot ye go.
  24. Please don't jinx him with this sort of talk.
