  1. If anything changes, it will be the departure of Sheerin. It’s the easy thing to do. That’s the bone that will be thrown to the dogs, and it will fix nothing. As long as the horrific Chairman, one or two of his lapdogs and Holt are still there, it remains a badly fractured club. We are as close to dead in the water as at any time in the last half century. Come in Gary Deans, your time is well and truly up.
  2. No because it is too stage managed. A group boycott is the only way and perhaps a bit of chanting outside before and during the game. So you get the Board and the Club you have now. If it’s stage managed, those that go will be sure to shout it out. Everything this mob touch is stage managed. If everyone takes the view that because of that, they aren’t going to offer any resistance or register their displeasure, then happy days for Deans & Co…..they will just continue hoovering up any little earners they can based on being a Falkirk Chairman or a Falkirk Director. MR and SA remain the two people who could bring it to a shuddering halt. Doubtless they have reasons for not doing so, but it’s hard to fathom what they are. For perhaps the first time in my life, I am open to the phrase “we are in free fall” having a ring of truth to it. …….registering, walking in and telling them where to ram it isn’t an approach I would object to either.
  3. We said this before the season started. It was why Sheerin was coached into saying he had “the final word” on all signings apart from four or five. Holt would have engineered that to ensure that if things went badly, he was suitably distanced from Sheerin. If things had been flying along, Holt would be very visibly looking to take credit for it…..of course, Deans would have come out of hiding too. Now that it is unraveling, Sheerin is the patsy. Stainrod and Proudtobeabaird will join Bantabairn in having very little to say. Who knows, the Board might well let them hide in the same cupboard as them.
  4. Absolutely. It’s clear that Deans picked a Board where talent and fitness for purpose came nowhere on the list of priorities. “Do what I say” was the only thing that mattered. So he and a number of others now need to leave the building pronto.
  5. Remember folks, you have to register to be allowed in to the Q&A on the 19th. Voices need to be heard, and blazer fillers need to be emptied. Worst chairman in at least two decades appoints a head coach who is potentially the most clueless in five decades. Quelle surprise. Meanwhile, the rest of the Board shuffle around looking for someone to hide behind. Get registered!
  6. If Sheerin is watching that Partick performance tonight, I reckon he will be raging at the way McCall has set out his team. I am sure he’ll feel that McCall has failed to apply the teachings of Largs.
  7. I intend being there. These things for me tend to be more about watching the top table’s reaction to questions more than anything else. For them and the things they are doing, this is not about engaging with the support, it’s about throwing up enough of a smokescreen to get through it. There will be plenty of people asking awkward questions. I think just about everyone knows our mob lie without batting an eyelid (I suppose they will go for calling it “spin”), but it’s nothing more than good old fashioned lying. I fully expect to hear lots of lies on the 19th……I think just about everyone does.
  8. This “worry yourself sick about the opposition” first took hold under Elvis. I heard one of his tactical talks at Stirling Uni, and it was all about the opposition threat and how to try to nullify it, with absolutely zero discussion on how we were going to win the game. It’s pretty clear that Sheerin has bought into the same Largs guff. Sadly, it’s hard to see him putting Ruth and Keena up front as he views it as a betrayal of how he thinks the game should be played. If coaching youth, he still wouldn’t bring on a second striker, and would take a defeat rather than give up on his system. The only upside is that he knows he can’t do that with the first team, but he only changes in order to try to rescue a situation. In the short spells of two up front, we have scored four times and conceded none. If that fact alone doesn’t convince the guy, then all that is left is the jeopardy of losing his job. I think we will win this game 2-1, but it won’t be pretty.
  9. That’s the frustrating part. Sheerin is not the cause of our ills. That belongs firmly with our BoD. However, Sheerin is making it pretty easy for them to lay the blame at his door by his frustrating team selections. For me, he near enough jumped the shark when expressed his disappointment at the manner in which we rescued a point at Montrose. The nagging doubt is just how much meddling is going on behind the scenes by Gary Holt. I have never felt overly convinced by the manner of his appointment (and even more uncomfortable with the people who appointed him). Getting beat by Airdrie would pretty much put the tin lid on Sheerin’s time in charge (if he ever was really in charge of anything). I think we will win with another unconvincing display.
  10. The triumph of hope over reality. I am at the stage where I think Sheerin will do everything he can to ensure Ruth is our top scorer. Keena has become the modern day pound store version of David Fairclough.
  11. It’s a home game, so a draw would not be a great result tbh.
  12. If Airdrie leave with 3 points next week, then the alarm bells will be ringing big time. Thing is, they would only be ringing for Sheerin, and he is a symptom, he is not the illness itself, and never will be as long as upstairs are allowed to carry on as they are.
  13. I do not know if that’s true or if it’s not, but as the losers in a previous “balance of probabilities” finding, then I would tend to fall on the “it’s true” side of the fence. A man charged with “a near impossible task” last season ( and failing in a manner that defied credibility) backed to the hilt by our middle management accountant and his yes men once again seems to fit the bill as someone that our Board would allow to keep the keys to the sweetie shop.
  14. Well, Holt is now off on loan to Dalbeattie Star until the end of the year, but the club “look forward to welcoming him back In January”. Aye, right.
