  1. Extremely difficult to beat whoever is from the SPL in the playoffs. Spot on with the ICT, they looked absolutely fc…d, apart from the general shite standard of play. Expect SJ to breeze it. Appalling set up to protect the clubs in the SPL.

    It’s a disgrace and the powers that be have made it that the lowly Championship clubs are jumping though hoops to gain promotion. It’s all part of looking after No 1’s.

    Poor ICT looked totally fucked whereas St J can rest all their players from nothingness fixtures.

    It’s about time we got the 4 playoff teams and had a straight Semi Final/Final and stop this ridiculous charade.
  2. Thought the interview was a bit of a ramble tbh. It’s obvious to me that camera or public speaking is not his forte. However that aside I do not give a flying f£ck as long as he shows an improvement in the football, the mentality and most of all desire and fight.

    His interview was the usual play on advertising ST sales, blowing smoke, rah rah rah etc. I think some of his charismatic deficiencies can be overlooked as he is our experienced FOOTBALL MANAGER and I wish him the best for a good season ahead and hope the fans stay with him, give him a chance to get his feet under the table and reinstate his own culture and belief into our club.

    Welcome John MyGlynn.

  3. Not going to go over the top about Telfer. He might’ve performed better in different circumstances but I’m certainly not weeping at his departure.
    Not good enough over the piece with us.

    Unfortunately not the type of player needed in this league but will probably go up to the championship next season and do well. Wrong club at wrong time, best of luck to him!
  4. I can exclusively reveal our next manager will be none other than ex-Falkirk stalwart Jean-Francois Lecsinel.

    Gaz
    I take it this is a cut and paste from around 12 years ago? This has been aired every time we need a new manager or even a new defender.
    You’d shit yourself if your many time premonition actually came true
    Keep taking the meds
  5. Why didn't we hound Dowds for calling Arbroath "We" directly to Falkirk TV? Is it because it wasn't one of the OF?
    I hate Rangers as much as the next man but this is the level of pettiness most regular diddy club fans would ridicule OF fans for.

    The trouble is he played for Celtic too and many other teams. When he uses the word ‘we’ who is he referring to?
  6. The contract given to Rennie and Miller till the end of the season will have been mutual. These two are nobodies mugs and will have been well aware of the mess they were taking on and wanting to get a lay of the land. They will be getting an idea of the integrity and trustworthiness of the board and the impatience of the support.
    I think they will walk with a thanks but no thanks.

    A great point and one I never considered. A try before you buy? Maybe there was a thought in their minds that this on paper was going to be a scoosh and maybe how could we fail?
    It may be both walk at the end of season and on to venture new but whatever happens their reputations will be tarnished unless things change before the seasons end.
  7. Like most fans was prepared to give the new BOD and management time to get the club back on a correct footing.
    It was would be foolish to give the BOD to much of a hard time, but the first big decision In replacing Sheerin has been another disaster. Another project that hasn’t worked.
    The interview with MR (and interviewer) just pathetic, what game was he at, Airdrie were mikes ahead of us, players knowing exactly what to do with the basics of playing football.
    Defending, passing, creating space, tackling, first and second balls etc.
    Us ? absolutely clueless. From our poor GK to a spineless ten yesterday, players looked liked they couldn’t be arsed, application and effort was appalling, and there’s not one player in that team I could even give pass marks to. Watson and Kabia now deciding to join the rest with the poorest performances I’ve seen since signing, Williamson is like a Fckn young bambi, one run and he’s fcked, scared to tackle.
    Nesbit & Charlie (eight wins) simply shite, Griffiths looks around the team at times, not sure what he’s seeing or simply couldn’t give two Fcks.
    We are in the biggest mess for years and going by the mood of many fans close to and around me, the club might just be teetering towards a massive drop in support come the new season. Many additional vacant seats from last home game. Very worrying times.
    Passed a young mother and daughter clearly upset with what was on show leaving the ground at 3-0. Sometimes you don’t need words…………
    Hats off to Mutch, honest and open interview and spells out how shite we are. 

    That was a damning afternoon and we were firmly put in our place by a good well organised team that knew their roles individually and collectively. I think Airdrie will get the play off spot and if any championship team thinks they’ll be able to take them lightly, be it at their peril.

    For me I’m totally fed up and feel like I’m wasting my time, effort and money following this half arsed team that totally incapable of putting themselves in the firing line, rolling over like a puppy have a tummy tickle. No desire, no ambition, no direction, gutless, clueless and that is only the team. The manager also talks absolute tosh treating us like imbeciles listening to his positive spin shit makes me really unhappy and annoyed.

    So, the team I have supported for a very long time will be missing another supporter who refuses to waste more time on a club full of imposters making a living on the backs of the very supporters that deserve much much better.

    I would need to see real meaningful change before I’m prepared to go back. I have had the impression for years that we have been playing at it fooling fans along the way. Take Killie for example, struggling in the championship - they make the necessary changes appoint a decent manager who in turns buys effective players and guess what? Yip they’re back at the top of the league whilst we muddle around becoming a bigger laughing stock that I thought imaginable.
    We are where we deserve to be despite new boards, fan investment and making the same mistakes over and over again - It’s madness!

    I’ve had enough. Just sat yesterday watching the contrast between the teams, when we lost possession we ambled about the park looking busy but when Airdrie lost the ball they were like swarms of flies around the proverbial and that was a very simple basic observation.

    Rant over and hopefully back at TFS when I see some genuine improvement instead of a multitude of false dawns. The product we’re are watching now and over the last 5 seasons is and has been utter pathetic.
  8. FFC dont need much office space. All we need is a High Street location with a club shop and offices above.
    The council relocate to TFS and they are welcome to it.
    Hire the pitch and the stands required per crowd expected for 25 odd matchdays then have nothing more to do with the place.
    Massive cost saving for the club

    I’m sure we have a very long lease that Houdini would have trouble escaping from. We’d need to go bankrupt to tear up that contract….oh wait a minute

    Only Kelty Hearts and Edinburgh City for me
  10. 100% true, we were after him all January. The new board won a watch with that one not getting it over the line. Worrying that their judgement was miles off trying to sign him though! 

    I think tbf few expected the social and media backlash to the extent it generated but so glad we never.
  11. I agree with this but I also feel that years of bad decisions by the board has really left a lot of fans feeling detached from the club. 
     
    I will be at my first home game since we got relegated on Saturday but I will be alone. The other 6 people that I used to go with, 3 of whom were ST holders have either lost interest or have found other things to do on a Saturday.  The new board have a lot of work to do to get lapsed fans back and a better product on the park could help with this.
    I also however agree that a lot of families are feeling the pinch financially at the moment and the pending gloom of energy rises, mortgage rates going up etc means they are tightening their belts and maybe just don’t have the cash.

    The point about being successful is I think the real underlying issue.
    My take on this is there have been some good positive changes over the past couple of months but the whole place lacks any ‘feel good factor’ and the point of being a competitive entity on the park has and is still doing is no favours as we still languish and struggle to show any real tangible pointers of real change in league status. The word I would use is momentum…and on the park we have suffered one too many false dawns.

    Football is all about success and the FSS membership will surge as the team shows real intention. Most people like to be part or feel like part of a success story.
    One of the best examples in my mind is Aberdeen FC. I know and have known many people who were hooked on their success in the early to mid eighties when they were really successful and to this day they are still supported by those people even though the live in here in the Central region and that was approx 40 years ago. Success means everything, get a bit of genuine glory on the pitch and watch the whole thing fall into place.
