As someone who’s watched Falkirk longer than most on here, I’ve not commented much recently as I really just don’t know what should happen. Im no expert on the intricacies of football tactics, coaching, etc. but I do love going to games and watching us do reasonably well within the constraints of our fan base, resources, etc. We’re never going to set the heather on fire but it is galling to see the likes of Livingston, Hamilton, st. Johnstone et al doing so much better.
The last few years under Hartley, McKinnon and M &M were turgid affairs with little enjoyment being served up.
With Sheerin, I have actually loved watching the new playing style but maybe that’s because what preceded was just so awful.
After the initial hopeful spell we have gone backwards with no end result for all the fine play.
To that extent I can see where both camps of opinion are coming from.
What to do?
I think Sheerin, who comes over as a decent sort, needs to be given more time- probably end of October.
I totally agree that his failure to adapt his formation and team selections is baffling and I would hope that Grainger would try to influence some of his decisions. However, if he is rigid in his philosophy and the results don’t improve, then the Board will need to act before it is too late.
Unlike previous seasons, I don’t think it would take all that much to turn things around.
Im probably a ‘sitter on the fence’ but hey- ho, I’m no expert.
