  1. I'm genuinely struggling to distinguish what is a serious post in here. Dead wife one had me in stitches until about half way through.
  2. Probably is about time for another FSS drive actually.
  3. Really good statement with lots of important information underneath that rid neck of an opening too. Hope this isn't going to be another statement where the main messages are distorted by some nonsense.
  4. I'd defend it. It's one of the most consistent ways to encourage a deep lying defence (y'know the sort we are constantly faced with in this league) to press you and create space in behind. Of all the things going on with the team this would probably be the last thing I criticise.
  5. Honestly you'd save yourself a lot of time just quoting BPM each time you post.
  6. It's pretty common for folk around Falkirk to know at least a few players in the squad each season. Over the last 10 years or so the team, a transfer, injury has been brought up on a Friday night. Never been an issue because you know that information goes no further. Sounds like, assuming the Larbert HS origin is true, there is a potential young player who needs reminded of the pitfalls of high school gossip.
  7. Better to keep quiet when itk about this kind of stuff.
  8. Yeah? I don't think he's a bad keeper but hasn't felt like a considerable upgrade on PJ Morrison, if an upgrade at all. Albeit we have only really got to see Morrison in the league cup games.
  9. The percentage refers to how many players (in a given position) they outperform than in those categories. So it suggests Morrisons crosses are more accurate than 84% of wingers in this league, rather than 84% of his crosses being accurate.
  10. There are stats. Checking out of games? About average. Goal contributions (>66%), defensive duels (>33%) and wins (>35%). Missed chances? Absolutely. Underperforming his xg contributions. Misplaced passes? Nope. Better pass completion rate than 85% of the league. Rotten decision making? About average. Dangerous passes (>44%) and progressive passes (>66%).
  11. Ankle injury with Carroll I was told a couple weeks ago.
  12. I get that a lot of focus is on what FSS is bringing to fill the current financial 'black hole' - completely understandable too for obvious reasons. However, I'm really excited to see what FSS can look like moving forward. I'd imagine an increased membership, with not just the weight of money behind it but a strong voice, really could push for changes that benefit the fanbase. Real potential to be something big.
  13. Yeah puma is tainted after the last few years. I don't mind who we get so long as it is a bespoke kit.
  14. The result and first half was truly awful but I have to admit that second half was, at the very least, fun. Been a long time since I was as pumped full of energy when we were pushing to get back into the game. Yeats epitomised it and played exactly as I would have if on the pitch, although also with some actual footballing ability too.
  15. Fighting to remove the MSG stranglehold is not the same as removing all influence.
  16. I (and believe a good few others who are within FSS) had a similar thought after the initial email. My worries have been eased that if 'Plan A', the 500% 6 month increase, is not achieved then the effort will be placed in finding a way of holding these shares until FSS catch up.
  17. My biggest concern since the email on Friday was a feeling that it was inevitable that FSS was being sidelined. The podcast and a few emails I've had back and forth with club have eased that, although it's still clear the FSS needs to up the monthly contributions. Assuming the full 'investment gap' is not met by FSS May 23 I really do hope that the main effort is placed on finding some way of 'ringfencing' the shares, as the alternative is devastating. FSS will come, but it needs time.
  18. That thing I took from the email is that, under the boards expectations, FSS as a third leg of the stool is at this point effectively over. £250k raised by monthly subscriptions by May 2023. That equates to just over £31k a month... A 6 fold increase, starting today, on what is already being pledged monthly. Never going to happen. I'm fairly sure the initial timeline from FSS was for ownership of 7.5% of shares after a year from a starting position of 97,000ish (3%) shares. We are just short of a year and the last count I'm sure was over 250,000 shares which, admittedly using fag packet maths, must sit somewhere around the 7.5-8% mark. Does this mean the plan was always to see a considerable 6 fold jump after a year or have the goalposts changed now that the money is drying up?
  19. I can see him changing very little of the starting 11, maybe the only change being the subs on earlier. Saying that there's almost always a keeper change in this competition to keep them sweet.
  20. I had a fairly enjoyable day so good effort all round.
  21. It seems a bit random to bring up now but did we ever find out what the story was with the Gow takeover/DOF stuff?
  22. Yeah very strange to completely change what has been a steady back 4 to accommodate one player, especially when the straight swap of Henderson for Mackie was always there.
