  1. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Are you taking the piss?
  2. The Falkirk FC Thread

    The s Threatening the shuttle boys in a public forum for using the club badge when the club didn't even have rights to the club badge summed the clown up if you ask me.
  3. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Are you talking about the sibbald situation or just in general?
  4. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Would be interesting to see if he really is on a lot more cash if any. Lets face it its playing in the top flight that was really his only real demand or he would be nowhere near Livi.
  5. The Falkirk FC Thread

    We were trying to persuade him to stay by offering him more cash though. Surely if we only want players 100% committed to Falkirk then that commitment shouldnt be based on an extra few quid being paid to them a week.
  6. The Falkirk FC Thread

    If we wanted him to stay you invoke the option you don't say okay do you want to stay or not? Thats the whole idea of an option . It takes the decision out of the hands of one side otherwise there is no point in having it. If Hartley wasn't that bothered then fair play but the statements put out have made it look like we did everything to keep him including offering him more cash for some reason even though the financial side of the option had already been agreed.
  7. The Falkirk FC Thread

    If thats the case then so be it but all the statements released have said that we were desperate for him to stay. Do you know otherwise?
  8. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Its called a discussion. People reply and I answer them with a reply. If no one replies then I don't answer. Pretty straightforward stuff really. If you want to discuss something else then by all means move the thread on to another topic.

    Only time will tell . If we bring in a better replacement then this will all be forgotten in a couple of months. If however, we struggle due to a lack of creativity next season then heads should start to roll. I just feel that we shouldn't have been getting involved in discussions with sibbald over this. We had an option. If we wanted him next season we invoke it. If we don't want him you say thanks very much Craig good luck. No need for discussions as the option has been agreed and finalised in the contract signed the year before. Is that not the whole idea of options? So one side is making all the decisions and its not a negotiation over this that and the other. I'm sure if the option had been Sibbalds and noone else had wanted him he'd have been invoking it whether we wanted him or not and he certainly wouldnt have been allowing us to reduce his wages or just bin him.

    If we were that desperate for him to stay you simply invoke the option and move on. You don't get involved in discussions with him whether he wants to stay or not. Thats the idea of an option it takes the decision out of the players hands. He must've known that we would want to take up the option when it was entered into his contract so its not as if its suddenly sneaked up on him. He's had months to get used to the fact that he would be here for another year at least . We're the ones pandering to the player now by letting him out of a contract he signed .
  11. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Aye but there was no option on his contract then and was it not getting the bloody option in his contract which meant it dragged on for so long? This year we should've been holding all the aces but he still seems to have moved on when we supposedly wanted him to stay and for what is a pretty paltry fee . Can't say that the club have come out of this well at all.
  12. The Falkirk FC Thread

    It took him a bit longer than that last season. One thing is for certain, it is better sorted now than dragging out all summer again. Aye because of all the fecking about with his contract. He didnt sign until the season had already started for fecks sake. There was no need for it to drag out this close season . Club just had to say Craig we're invoking the contract option thanks preseason training starts on the blah blah blah. Situation is sorted and dealt with early and we move on. He knows where he's playing this season and if he wants a move to a decent side he needs to knuckle down and perform and the club knows he's in the squad. Why we were dicking about with negotiations and this and that if we were desperate to keep him god knows.
  13. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Its not so much the fact that he's irreplaceable or the greatest player its just the way the club have handled the whole thing from last close season onwards that to me has been amateurish and pretty shambolic to say the least.
  14. The Falkirk FC Thread

    So your saying he would've been devastated to have missed out on a move to the giants that are livi. The boy needs to grow a pair if thats the case. As I said a couple of weeks later he'd have forgotten all about it. Anyway he should simply have been informed that the club were taking up the option and that should have been that. No discussions were in anyway required as he'd already agreed to the option being placed in his contract.
  15. The Falkirk FC Thread

    There's still weeks to go till the season starts he would've been back on track by then and as I said he couldnt afford not to perform next season or noone would've wanted him in a years time. Whilst he's not irreplaceable he's not going to be easy to replace with the budget we ahve so we'll just need to hope that hartley has some real quality lined up to come in.
