  1. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Maybe they can combine a terrace with a building behind it to service the astro pitch A terrace , even with a small section for away fans would improve the look of the stadium and the atmosphere no end.

    How close to the stadium is this pitch going to be The side would look superb with a 10 step terrace and a low roof.

    Nothing to stop a group getting together to sponsor a player. I know one of Tony Watt's shirt sponsors and yes he was at the event during the week and again on Saturday night at the POTY awards The interesting point was he was not asked to join in the open training session and just stood by the dug out.. Tony said at the table he has no offers, no idea where he will be next year and what the future holds. he did say he's been frozen out for a long time and had not been training.

    Neil McCann must have taken his pills before they played the Nelms interview last night as he was reasonable about it all. Even when asked some "difficult " questions on the Toxic comments. I guess he was pre warned this time and I do wonder if he has a switch at times.

    Multiple factors. In the main I'd say the success of the promotion of the top level in England. I do youth work as a volunteer and many of the kids don't see Scottish football as relevant now, they only talk about the game in England and what players do for their team on FIFA, its also whole combination of so many games on TV, Soccer Saturday etc. The later with betting effects those aged 16-21 who possibly get more out of sitting in a bar watching their coupon fail than going to a game. The price is a factor, but people look at the prices in England and Germany and say why can we not do that, we could but the players would not get paid! TV and nation size has dictated what will be successful. If the bubble burst the smaller leagues need to jump quick but it may not be a bubble and just the way it will be for ever.

    Now on sale to those with 2 points. With so many left we could be heading for another game where anyone who wants to go can get a ticket.
  7. With players from 9 of the 10 Premier League teams that season The 28 lower league teams got the Challenge cup as a one off event that season We had a player who had played in the Final of Euro 88 just over 2 years before this game yet he was not selected.

    Who happened to be at the reserve game against Celtic on Monday afternoon.

    That's the way the press release worked but I am sure McCann went the midweek before and then when the legal documents were signed they made the announcement by which time they had McIntyre. They then waited exactly 24 hours to do another release just in time for Sportsound again.

    Comrie looked class yesterday, especially in the first half. I still think he's a league 1 or 2 player but there is something there.

    He is certainly also at away games, I had the pleasure to walk with him to McDiarmid Park from the car park during the annual league cup group game this season His motivational skills in his time with us were never in any doubt, I was a neighbour of some of the squad back then and they would all praise that side of his management From what I know via two players, the reason he lost his job was the dressing room split in 2 during the summer of 1992. Despite what was reported in the papers, as results faltered one of the groups managed to convince the Chairman to replace the man who was a big part of our recovery from the dark days of the old division 2 and crowds of under 500. I know it wont happen as it would undermine the manager but he should have a chat with your team before tomorrows game.

    When I ran a youth club in Perth , the promotion of boys to Pro Youth teams, while weakening that age group for a period always helped with promotion of the club to the younger teams. We got a reputation for being a pathway for the better players and a place for players to develop. Maybe we did not win as many trophies as some would have liked but that was never the aim With regard to scouts , each club did it differently, one scout who we got to know worked with both Rangers and Dundee and many of our boys had spells at both teams . of the other local teams there was a little representation mainly at cup finals but you get used to seeing the same faces every week at the games so spotting a scout was easy. What does frustrate is the likes of Hearts who would take 20 lads for a 6 week period, drop them all then pick up another 20 and so on all season. Many of the players just get so disillusioned and never return to the Sunday game.

    Surely this season will prove to the board they need to go back to the system that was almost working before, The Houston teams came so close to getting back to the Premiership.
