  1. They say that when you are learning to drive you are actually only taught how to pass the test and then, when you are out on the road, you teach yourself how to drive and you become road smart. Sheerin has been so used to coaching his boys in Aberdeen how to "play football" that he has forgotten what it is like to coach grown men play real, street-wise football. I said after the Montrose game that the board should give him the East Fife and Airdrie games to show if he is worth being kept on and he has failed that test miserably. Time to take your "L" plates elsewhere Paul. (and take Holt and Deans with you).
  2. Just tried to include @bantabairn in a post but nowt comes up. Missing In Action. Even he can't defend the indefensible and has slithered off with his tail tucked between his legs. Rats deserting a sinking ship.
  3. East Fife are now above us in the form table. Cheerful reading, eh?
  4. Alloa 1-0 Peterhead Clyde 1-1 Montrose Dumbarton 0-2 Queen's Park East Fife 0-2 Cove Falkirk 1-1 Airdrie
  5. Please tell me you are going to the Q&A? Pretty please?
  6. jjjj As of today, 12th October 2021 at 16.48 UK time, the Falkirk thread has gone a whole 24 hours without a single post. Are we becoming an apathetic fan-base with a resigned acceptance of our current, depressing situation? And are we are now OFFICIALLY a Diddy Team, with fans posting as infrequently as the likes of Peterhead, Dumbarton and Cove supporters? No offence to Peterhead, Dumbarton and Cove fans, I respect and admire your loyalty.
  7. "looked good. Young manager, very modern, experienced coach, analytical. Shame he was so shite, totally unwilling to change tactics that so obviously weren't working. Does it really matter who they appoint? They have proved conclusively that they couldn't pick their nose let alone a successful manager. The people responsible for this mess will be the same people choosing the man to get us out of this mess". Paul Sheerin and the Falkirk board? No, just been onto the Carlisle United Fans Forum where they are discussing their recently sacked manager, the board and their decision making process in bringing in a new manager. We Are Not Alone!
  8. His full name is S'chn T'gai Spock. dif-tor heh smusma.
  9. Fair dos, Popodopolouschaterjeesingh. I bet they're glad that you aren't playing for us.
  10. Who? His wife? His father? His brother? In life I don't know a single person who is referred to by their family name as a matter of course and / or as a term of endearment. The only people I know who are referred to by their family name on a sole or regular basis are fictional TV characters: Columbo, Quincy, Morse, Kojak, Mulder, Scully, Starsky (not Hutch though), House, Cagney, Lacey, Spock etc. It just smacks to me of bad personnel management by Sheerin, calling some players by a given name or nickname and others by their family name.
  11. I am guessing that is true for most people. Certainly in my work experience when I am speaking to colleagues or being referred to by a colleague it is usually given names that are used. The only time this changes is when an unpopular colleague is being spoken about, in their absence, and then they are usually referred to by their family name (or worse). It just seems strange to me that Sheerin would differentiate between his players in this manner. What tartan are Popodopolouschaterjeesingh's allowed to wear?
  12. Do people normally address you by your given name or your family name Shagger? In what context do they use your given name and in what context do they use your family name?
  13. This. Watched Sheerin's post match interview again and he definitely has his favourites. It's "Mikey" and "Ben" and "Stevie" and "Gaz" then "Keena", "Nesbitt" and "McGuffie". He needs to learn that we don't play 4 a side and that every player should be valued and respected. Edit: except Jaime Wilson.
  14. How long have you been a Falkirk supporter?
  15. That would be replacing Sheerin's tippy tappy, work it from the back football with Hughes' tippy tappy, play it out from the back football Harry. It doesn't work in this league and our players aren't good enough to play it.
