  1. If Falkirk want to know how to recruit players and have their finger on the marketplace. Then go no further than delve into the clubs own records of how Jeffries & Brown went about their business in identifying players they wanted to sign.
  2. What's going on ? Sheerin has lost the dressing room, the players don't buy into or believe in what he is doing.
  3. Will unconfuse you then We are in deep shit and whatever we do ain't going to make much difference. Stick with what we have got manager and squad wise - good grief what a thought Change manager and shop for a replacement in the bargain basement with the dregs to chose from - good grief what a thought
  4. Why would they be on their way out ? Because they have not delivered on the pitch. As for a new face freshening up in January. can only think of 3 - 4 players and manager would keep and trying to dump the rest.
  5. When it comes to hire and fire outfits we are in a league of out own. Players and Managers that have rejected us ! that's easy. Just look at the signings other clubs have made that we would have been in for and if we weren't then that just confirms my point.
  6. It is because of two factors. 1. The league we are in and therefore the the marketplace we are shopping in 2. Seen as a hire and fire outfit with managers and squads dumped on a regular basis than does not look good on the CV All the problems we have can be designated to one or the other. The longer it goes on the more entrenched that becomes in manager and player circles. Dumping Sheerin bring these factors into play with the danger of the squad downing tools knowing they are on the way out. That's why the board will stick by their man as the least worse of the options they have.
  7. There are no physical assets. Squad worthless Minority shareholder in stadium company that's worthless as the council have captive money font in FFC All there is ? Goodwill - precious little of that about.
  8. Neither would I. One of the greatest players I have seen in a Falkirk jersey
  9. If not Rice then Latapy as Yogi's No 2 would be a good option. Anybody know where the genius is ?
  10. Worse than the post Cunningham wilderness years in the 70's
  11. Sacking Sheerin reinforces the perception ( which is correct ) FFC are a hire and fire outfit. So there ain't going to be a big pool of managers that will look at us because of it. That's Sheerin's managerial career over for example. If we do sack him and its a big if - then there has to be someone in the pipeline that can be announced next day. For no other reason time is not on our side and cannot afford to fanny about for 2,3,4,5, weeks. It's got to be Yogi !
  12. Good point Brown did well but Ormond's squad were in a different class with that never say die attitude. As for Roxburgh well Gough had a different take on it but to be fair they did the business on the park. Oh for the 74 squad now !
  13. What Clarke has got going for him though is 'Team Spirit' and its the best I have seen in a Scotland team since Willy Ormond's great 1974 side. So credit to him for that at least.
  14. If that is the case and Sheerin does not have complete control of team matters them more fool him for not insisting on that when he took the job. Therefore in this instance I disagree with you. Sheerin by not laying down the lay before he took the job is in the BoD camp when it comes to taking the blame. In the wonderful book 'The 3 Kings' Shankly, Busby, Stein had control over all matters regarding the playing side and woe betide any director that crossed the line - they were soon told and in many instances in public.
  15. Think it was Clarke that signed Marshall and Burgess
  16. He can only work with the squad he has but that is no excuse as he knew that when he took the job. With the exception of 3 or 4 if the rest left they would be no great loss if we got promoted. Airdrie is never an easy game and if we come away with a point I would take it. Sad how your expectations drop - taking a draw at Airdrie dear oh dear
  17. Great Memories maybe but it was the longest last 10 minutes watching football in my life
  18. That was about the longest 10 minutes I ever spent at Brockville.
  19. Decent man and a good manager. My goodness we could do with somebody of his caliber now. Had an eye for a player to fit into a system. Bryan Purdie as sweeper being good example
  20. Agree but that's the way it is Ruth is not our player
  21. Their player and can do what they please. Not an issue ! not what FFC would have preferred but what's our preference does not come into the matter.
  22. Was with the Blue / White vertical stripes think it was in the George Miller era and in particular Johnnie Graham wearing them one game was matt red colour shorts only worn for a few games. Liked the look of the strip
  23. This crap about fancy colours for your change strip is no more than a rip off. Home: Blue tops White shorts Away: White tops Blue shorts Choice of socks to avoid colour clash Also gives the all white or all blue option - job done. There was only one strip other than that I liked and that was in the mid 70's Blue / White strips Red shorts White socks blue tops to them. Anybody else remember that one ?
  24. Remember that game as well the kit man got sacked on the spot. Davy Clarke was near purple with rage when he came out at kick off.
