  1. The Falkirk FC Thread

    A player is symptomatic, not root cause. You would also have to factor in every chance missed by any outfield player. Unless there is an algorithm to cover every error by every player, it’s ultimately meaningless. What if Jordan McGhee hadn’t switched off and allowed Oakley to stroll past him and score in the first game of the season? I don’t think you can say he is any more culpable than say Harrison or Dallison.....they all made mistakes, and lots of them. Ultimately the biggest factors lie further up the food chain.

    I can see CC ML the MSG and McKinnon having a wee whip round for you. A kaching post.
  3. Relegation Royal Rumble

    There is precious little chance Falkirk will feature in the play offs as it’s more likely we are autodoon. In truth, I think you would fare better against Queens. Alloa would eat you alive tbh, whereas Queens would be an absolute bag of nerves, and capable of imploding.
  4. Relegation Royal Rumble

    I agree. Is there another league in Europe that is this uncertain of the outcome? Sadly, ours isn’t a story of slowly dragging ourselves back into the fight, it’s of manager losing his nerve and screwing it up completely while the Board simultaneously do the exact same thing to every other aspect of the club. Truly special.

    So much effort. So little reward.

    And yet wel still get fucked off DU and RC More than likely aye. We might draw both, and then he can point to our 4 defeats in 18 as the mark of a team on the rise. Everybody trust him to get us back up at the first time of asking?
  7. The Falkirk FC Thread

    After 71 minutes, Ayr have had zero shots on target. Why should they? All they have to determine is if they finish 3rd or 4th. Foot off the gas, and rest a player or three for the play offs.
  8. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Looks like Thistle are well on their way to disappearing over the horizon (currently beating Ayr). Kind of leaves QotS and Alloa as the only potential targets.........and both have a 3 point start over two games.
  9. Relegation Confirmed - Utd v Falkirk

    If only it were that simple........our BoD and MSG have taken the fans investment offer and are using it as leverage to sweeten a deal with an alternate investor. The place is riddled with mistrust now. Staying up would be better, but this time, things really cannot go on as they are. MSG would like out with money. CEO wants to stay on as a CEO who doesn’t really do anything. God only knows what the Chairwoman wants.

    Oh goody. That sounds more thorough than a clear out. Had a look at my garage today thinking it needed a bit of a clear out, but in truth, it needs an unsentimental purge. Once the smoke clears, I imagine a sooty faced Tommy Robson as the only thing still standing within the walls of FFC.
  11. The Falkirk FC Thread

    I had asked the question on the Raith thread in terms of McKinnon’s playing style with them. There doesn’t seem to have been a lack of attacking threat, but that is explained as probably being down to the fact that they actually had a couple of decent guys up front plus Hardie on loan from you know who. They say that he did focus a lot on defence, but he inherited some decent players further forward. He is pretty much despised for the manner in which he left them to join DU......so that’s twice I suppose.
  12. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Excuse the intrusion folks, but over on our Falkirk thread, the autopsy on our woeful season is underway. Ray McKinnon has given us an incredibly turgid brand of football based on being very very defensive. Brechin and DU supporters seem to be of a similar mind, in that he obsessed about not losing, and rarely seemed interested in winning games. The thoughts of RR supporters is the key missing in terms of opinion. How did he come across at Starks, and did he deliver a decent brand of footie? Cheers.
  13. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Don’t know about Raith, but DU supporters certainly identify with his 4-5-1 that he tried to pass off as a 4-3-3. Something says that if he could go the entire season undefeated, amass 36 points and be relegated, he would completely ignore relegation and bang on and on about his team of “invincibles”. Sadly, he may well turn out to be yet another goofy bit of business by the Board. Looks like we will have to suffer at least another season of his “style”.
  14. The Falkirk FC Thread

    They are both styled the same way, but the differences are down to the players at their disposal. Both incredibly cautious and more about the strengths of the opposition. Time can be a great healer, but anyone who remembers Pressley’s Team conceding 4 goals in Cowdenbeath knows how awful he could be. It is probably a Largs thing, but their outlook is broadly similar because they absorbed what they were taught there.
