  1. Have candid interviews after a game if it’s been a poor performance. Otherwise don’t have them. Doesn’t have to be brutal. ”So (insert managers name), why were we so poor today”? Not a major priority I know but the first thing that came into my head and they are very annoying.
  2. If Rice comes in is it likely he’ll be here in 3 years time? I don’t think so. If he somehow got us out of this division (promoted) in that time, that would do me.
  3. Maybe I’m in a state of self-denial but supporting the biggest laughing stick around is pretty amusing, in amongst the usual feelings of doom and gloom.
  4. Just had another look at that 4th goal again and is that not pretty much the same spot Mark Durban covered himself in failure last season. It really is Deja Vu.
  5. I’m going to put it out there and say I doubt we’ll end up in League 2. We seem to have enough to take care of poor sides like Clyde or Dumbarton who really are part-timers. However, against anyone with a bit about them….
  6. I don’t agree. I doubt any Falkirk fans were surprised we lost yesterday but losing 6-0 to Queens Park and not regarding that as not one of the worst results in our history would be very concerning. I mean, as someone mentioned earlier, I don’t think we’ve lost that heavily to a team outwith Rangers or Celtic since the 70s. Lots of “history” there.
  7. No fan worth his salt would do that would they? If you got beat 6-0 off Rangers or Celtic would you be full of praise for the opposition? I’m guessing not as that would probably be an expected result. So why would arguably one of the worst results in our history be met with making sure we gave out platitudes. I’m sure Queens Park are revelling in their victory and then some.
  8. No you don’t. It was really just a bit of a teasing comment rather anything that needed too much analysis. However, the bus loads of Rangers and Celtic fans leaving various Scottish towns including Falkirk is a bit soul destroying which you may or may not agree.
  9. It’s not the worst idea. Before today I would’ve said don’t be ridiculous but we’ve hit rock bottom and like you said, he would no longer have anywhere to hide.
  10. Twice Totten got us out of a hole. To think Hughes was available and could’ve done the same.
  11. Basically since Houstie uttered those words it’s been a disaster. It was right for him to go though not all his own doing. Today was a nadir. Get Rice in until the end of the season and take it from there. If he fails (basically by trying to somehow to improve our current league position) then maybe Kerr next if necessary. We are a train wreck of a club that is in “salvage something” territory.
  12. Getting murky here man. Let’s face it, if we’re playing Clyde we’re watching the guy play too. Things are dire enough without this rubbish.
  13. I think this is the first season where any excuses from any angle well and truly ended: 2016/17 - after such a great previous season, a repeat performance was always unlikely with a couple of key losses from the squad. 2017/18 - Houston announcing his pending departure always undermined his position which, in turn, probably affected on-field performance. Hartley repaired the damage to maintain Championship status. 2018/19 - terrible summer transfer window which produced terrible results leaving us adrift. Almost escaped relegation still. 2019/20 - Despite some lows (a couple of real lows), we could’ve still gone toe-to-toe with Raith until Covid hit. 2020/21 - Top for a good while until the wheels well and truly fell off. And to this season, the season where fans thought anything is possible now….League 2, Lowland League….
  14. They don’t want you to be just seething with your team though. These trolls want so much more.
  15. I don’t think there’s a seethe. We know we’re shite. We fully expect to be ridiculed. So where is the seethe?
  16. I take your point about trophy haul. I was coming from - average league placing from way back when the leagues started. Or in the lifetimes of many fans, I think it would be fair to say we are suffering a very bad patch. We may become another Clyde but I think for many fans, this still feels like a blip in supporting the club. It is getting ever closer to being a lost cause.
  17. In purely historical terms, probably about 3rd or 4th in the second tier or about 14th overall in the country in a given season, considerably lower than where we are. As you probably know following your team is about your history of following that team and memories too. Or is the question you posed not really supposed to be answered?
  18. No point having fans then is there? Such a clinical way of looking at things but knock yourself out.
  19. My day has just got a whole lot better. Derek McWilliams is the latest guest on “Walking Down Hope Street”!
  20. Agreed with all of this apart from Hartley’s first season and the “hardly put a foot wrong” comment. Yes there was the 6-1 Dundee Utd game but the wins against perhaps the worst side ever at that level (Brechin) and 3 wins in dead rubber matches really did bolster an otherwise indifferent first season (albeit on the back of Houston’s bad start). Incidentally, Bannon’s league record was 9 wins, 3 draws and 8 defeats in his 20 games in the second tier so pretty average overall but not disastrous form.
  21. I honestly feel if we didn’t have such a stupid, yes stupid, stadium (outside of the town too), Brockville wouldn’t be missed as much.
