    Putting tickets on sale at 10am on a weekdays is an absolute nightmare. Surely an evening outwith traditional working hours gives the vast majority of fans a chance to get there and have a shot at getting a ticket?

    Open until 7 on the first day of sales and can be purchased over the phone. I'd be surprised is there is 900 folk down at 10am on a Thursday.

  2. Part of the issue is most fans will, because of the COVID season streams, now have something to compare our commentary team against and it's started to highlight some of the deficiencies. 

    Like I said before though, the completed package that the guys put together really is top quality.

    Personally I think the FSS model is all wrong, why would I sign up to pay £10 a month when I get nothing in return?

    This has been scoffed at a bit and initially I did the same because a collective Falkirk Supporters Society just makes complete sense to me. However, see when I've been trying to convince folk to sign up this exact argument that comes back just about everytime. The idea of of a collective voice, a union and being part of something bigger than ourselves just doesn't appeal to everyone. It's a shame, a bit embarrassing I think, but this is probably one of the biggest barriers for FSS to address - what can we give back?

    Not convinced that changing the structure of FSS to allow members to hold the shares in their own name is the right way to go. Anyone can do that as an individual anyway. Seems @Van_damage is suggesting that benefits would subject donations to VAT charges, be interesting to hear a bit more about this. I'm assuming it refers things like free gifts, club shop discount etc. If FSS was to offer membership only events (like the McGlynn Q&A) is this considered a benefit? The FSS prize draw doesn't impact on VAT charges? May be some work around here.

    Apart from the small matter that away fans were moved back to the North stand because they couldn't be segregated. 

    Won't this just re-introduce the same issue albeit in the North stand?

    I'm pretty sure the North Stand can effectively be split in two with both halves having toilets and a kiosk.

    Based on what? His hold up play is decent, he runs in behind, his touch is very good and brings others into play? Obviously he doesn’t score enough but when he helps bring Morrison, Nesbitt and Kennedy into play that shouldn’t be a worry. 

    Did all those things very well. Exactly what I'm looking for in a second striker.

    I think some on here are being incredibly harsh on Oliver again. Done a lot of good work, especially against Grant. He should have scored he’ll not need to be told that. We criticise him but his play allows Kennedy and Morrison to be so effective. 

    He's not a lone striker though.

    Are you seriously going to try to defend this shite?

    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.

    I’m presuming the AGM won’t be announced until the club has a clear picture of the numbers they’ve been able to raise via these recent fund raising/ investment initiatives that have been pushed, that and/or finalising agreements with shareholders for any soft loans that have been needed. There’s no point in calling us all to a meeting if all that information isn’t finalised and available, shareholders need to be given an accurate up to date position of where the club is and what needs to be done rather than a “we don’t know yet” or we’re “still in discussions with” such and such. 

    Honestly you'd save yourself a lot of time just quoting BPM each time you post.

  9. 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.

    I’d try and keep Hogarth as No 1 through this season. I prefer him to PJ Morrison and we’d need to make sure he was 100% and not break down again before the season was out.  New keepers needed from next season in my opinion

    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.
