  1. Not sure I've seen this talked about yet. Interesting comments from Nesbitt - he sounds far closer to captain material than Hetherington (or anyone else for that matter). https://www.nottheoldfirm.com/interview/falkirk-star-desperate-to-turn-things-around-after-hostile-atmosphere/
  2. Anyone properly put them on the spot or give them a bit of heat?
  3. The point of emailing is to keep up the pressure and to make it clear folk aren't happy. Witholding ticket money is futile if there isn't a concerted effort to build it into an actual group or movement and get momentum behind it as lots of folk will always renew. That takes leadership and organisation though which most folk won't have. In any business, receiving lots of regular complaints from hundreds of different people is never easy to ignore. If all they get is 2 or 3 emails from those who can be bothered that's never going to be enough to drive change sadly. I'd actually argue that whenever fan voices have been loudest change has happened. SA and MR standing aside from day to day decision making I think was an attempt to do that, so was the departure of ML and CC. Change hasn't always led to success which is a different argument.
  4. Because if you're not going to games to protest and not emailing the board or going to the Q&A how exactly are they going to know you're unhappy? @Harry Kinnear touched on it with his post - clearly the director he met was judging the number of emails they receive as an indicator of how unhappy the fans are. The protest so far at games has extended to a bit of booing and 1 x banner so they'll hardly be feeling hounded out will they?
  5. Ferrie, Grant, Doyle, Robson, McHugh, Longridge, Moore.... I make that 7.
  6. Wrong. The post didn't assume you'd only won 5/10 while 'playing your best' it said you were nothing special which you've just confirmed by saying you've been relatively poor for a while now. Half your team are our cast offs too so we know very well what they're capable of.
  7. [email protected] I used it earlier in the season and got a reply from Colin McFarlane. A reply I didn't agree with but a reply none the less. Amazed if true that regular posters on here haven't been using it to make their feelings known. Maybe they think they're in for an easy ride tonight (and maybe they are if folk aren't planning to go along to that either).
  8. @D'Jaffo @virginton You are perhaps forgetting we actually watch our games and so know what we can be capable of & also get a good look at the opposition. QP are nothing special and having only won 50% of their 10 games will tell you that. We've also had some rank rotten players for a few years now who have gone on to regular games in the league above after leaving us. Players worse than some of the lot we have now. The truth is it doesn't take much to win this league but we seem intent on making a mess of it time and again.
  9. I still believe we have the players, however limited, to scoosh this (very poor) league. As many others have said a good 6/7 of our strongest starting XI would most likely find championship teams if we released them today. With the recent tactics and head scratching team selections/subs we're our own worst enemy. The question is why do we continue to self harm when the league is there for the taking for anyone who can put together a half decent run. Who is calling the shots and why?
  10. So no sign of any sacrificial lambs in the build up to the Q&A. Fully expected there would be at least 1 departure before tomorrow night to try to quell the anger. There may still be but it looks like they're going to try and front it out which is bold if nothing else. I just hope most posters (and certainly the most vocal) on here are going tomorrow night to confront the board & Holt etc directly or have at the very least submitted questions (I certainly have). There is no better way to get your anger across than to turn up tomorrow night and make your feelings known. Really hope the questions go beyond "why doesn't Keena start" and get to the real root causes of our complete collapse in recent weeks and who is to blame for the current shambles.
  11. Been on holiday so thankfully didn't have to watch the horror show on Saturday. Would be incredible to think there won't be any attempt to drop some good news in prior to the Q&A on Tuesday to try and quell the anger. Holt out announcement tomorrow?
  12. 2 goals in 3 starts is about as good as we could have asked for as he gets up to speed.
  13. Why haven't we signed this guy if we have a new scout in place? So much for the supposed scouting network. I hope this isn't because The Rawlins have said we mustn't sign Gary Goals. Why are they allowed to make these decisions with only 26%? The NB investment could have given us enough cash to bring in Gary Goals and have some left over. Sheerin probably wouldn't have played him anyway he's so stubborn. I can't believe he favours his own signings over Gary Goals. What a shambles of a club. #notapennymore
  14. Yes but the point is Keena does it - Ruth doesn't when up on his own. Taking it to extremes and using another famous player analogy, he seems like more of a Wayne Rooney than a Ruud Van Nistelrooy. I assume this is why Dowds was also loaned out (because he's not what Sheerin considers an 'out and out striker') Best option remains to play them both of course.
  15. I actually agree that (when he plays) Keena doesn't get into the box enough. It was something I called out when he was playing earlier in the season - he drops too deep, too often.
