    Fixed that fur ye. A great player.
  2. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Not quite right Says Bertie Mee to Bill Shankly "Have you heard of the North Bank Highbury?" The Shanks says "no, I don't think so But I've heard of the famous Brockville"
  3. That's because I'm the font of all knowledge.
  4. fan noun (2) Definition of fan (Entry 3 of 3) 1: an enthusiastic devotee (as of a sport or a performing art) usually as a spectator 2: an ardent admirer or enthusiast (as of a celebrity or a pursuit) So, basically, Falkirk fans are extremely loyal and devoted which is the whole point of being a fan, supporting the team through thick and thin. The attendance last night tends to suggest that Partick Thistle "fans" really aren't fans at all.
  5. INCOMING CROWD w**k ALERT INCOMING Just clocked the attendance for this game last night, 2.149, that is absolutely pathetic for a vital game for Partick Thistle, even allowing for the fact that it was live on the box. The club might not have given up on them staying up but it seems like their fans have.

    Aw shoot, we got Edith! Think we will be lucky to finish 9th and just have to hope for the best in the play-offs.

    Waiting for signing news I feel like Jack and Victor waiting for the bus to arrive, I'm hoping for Boobra but I'm sure that we will get Edith - "this is bloody torture".
  8. Falkirk fan in peace. I have to say that I genuinely feel sorry for you for the way that you have lost McKinnon. We fans sign up to a club for life, the players and managers are only here for the duration but it hurts like hell when a successful one is poached by a “bigger” club (up to you whether you think we are bigger or not). I’ve supported Falkirk since 1969 and seen 23 managers come and go but the 2 leaving that hurt the most was Jim Jefferies going to Hearts and Ian McCall going to Dundee United. In both instances we got the “pledge of loyalty” from them (a football manager’s equivalent of the chairman’s “vote of confidence”, means bugger all) and then they were off! It hurt like hell at the time but life goes on. To quote Jimmy Greaves, “football is a funny old game” and if you end up getting Davie Hopkin, while his style of play doesn’t really appeal to me, you could still end up having a great season. All the best for the rest of the season, except of course for the 4 times when you play the Bairns.

    I have to say that I am getting quite confused with some of the threads these days. A few weeks ago I went onto the "Early predictions" thread and there was pages and pages all about Stephen Dobbie, nothing about league predictions. Here again, I've come onto a "Crowdw**k" thread expecting some b*kkake action and all everybody is talking about is crowd sizes. What am I doing wrong?

  11. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Yes, of course, different types of players, I just think that Nelson fits in better to the style of play that Hartley has us playing, Haber would be more of a target man for balls lumped from the back, we already have Mackin for that, maybe? Perhaps Hartley's idea is to have Haber here for the season to pass on tips to Mackin to make him a better player?
  12. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Please forgive me. Of course, what I should have done was fly back to the UK, stay for a few weeks to let me go up to Dundee to watch Haber playing for Dundee reserves before I'm allowed to pass judgement on him. I'll bear that in mind before I post anything in the future.
  13. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Just watched Haber on Youtube, an awkward big unit with a crap goal celebration - fortunately / unfortunately I don't think that we will see it much more than 8 - 10 times a season. A downgrade on what Nelson was towards the end of his time with us.
  14. The Falkirk FC Thread

    Since 2013, whilst with Dundee United, St Johnstone, Ross County, Hibs and Cheltenham Town, he has played 134 games and scored 30 goals - he is not the 20 goals a season striker that we crave / need.
