  1. I was anti Clarke after/during the Euros but reckon he should stay now. I think we're desperately short in a few key positions so not sure binning him now will help much. If we just had one quality forward...
  2. I agree. Think Wales, who are also bang average, will beat them. Bet you Bale doesn't miss that shooting on sight against that horror show of a keeper is a good idea.
  3. That's him. Every time he got the ball he waltzed past a couple and kept the ball. Looked a total baller
  4. Think we're pretty lucky they didn't bring that Mudryk guy on 20 mins earlier... he looked like a 16 year old playing against his wee brothers.
  5. That is peak Scotland fannery. f**k me.
  6. As he's not posted since..there's every chance he did go to the Mill Inn
  7. Wait...what the f**k was this????
  8. The goalkeeper was comically poor. Of course we troubled him not at all bar the goal and McGrim's comedy miss.
  9. Che Adams needs to be binned. I've no idea what he brings. He's weak, no threat, can't hold the ball up and doesn't even look that quick.
  10. We've got McGinn.. Super John McGinn I just don't think he's very good
  11. Today's been brilliant. Gets that Sevconian fucker out of the club.
  12. You would imagine we have to bring in someone at least remotely competent but we can't be confident that's the case. I assumed after Cones that it was impossible to downgrade but the new board managed it somehow Surely this time they actually appoint a real football manager.
  13. I've interviewed plenty of people. But it's not really comparable to football management. I'm not sure Rennie was lauded by the majority when he arrived. Some fans bizarrely decided on Day One he was a great appointment, but I think most were pretty dubious. In a 'real' job situation no one generally knows what you've done, other than a CV and your answer to some scenario based interview questions. I dont think that would be that helpful recruiting a Falkirk manager. How would someone like Dick Campbell, or Hughes, who are excellent managers interview? 'Can you tell me about a situation where..?' 'Ah'm fae Leef' It's probably always going to be gut feel. My gut feel was that Rennie was a bad appointment (think I said that on here). Yes, he wasn't Largs mafia but he sounded clueless and we were prising him from college women's football. Looked a huge gamble. Doesn't know the league. No pedigree here. And has proven to be miles out of his depth. As was always quite likely. We keep appointing bad managers. Some are unlucky (like Hartley which looked an excellent appointment). Some like Rennie and Sheerin are far more predictably bad. It's always a gamble but you can de-risk that by picking someone plausibly good.
  14. Did these candidates apply for the role? How did that process work? How specifically did Martin Rennie appear in a shortlist of 2?
  15. How many does it take to sack the clown? Still 8?
  16. Also when the f**k did Lewis become part of this clowns propaganda machine? I get that we're not going to get any insightful questions from Falkirk TV but that opening one can get so far into the fucking sea.
  17. Worst decision ever. In our history. And this is a club that appointed John Lambie and Eamonn Bannon. I'd far rather watch the Bannon side, including Sabatino De Massis. He'd be a certain starter in this squad.
  18. The new board keeping Rennie for next season would be in its way a magnificent send off to so many fans. Ease that transition to Saturday shopping with the missus and golf. It would be the worst decision any board of ours has ever made in terms of personnel though. Worse than appointing May. Worse than keeping Pressley on. Worse than tapping McKinnon. That's how bad Rennie is.
  19. Be very happy with him. Will have good contacts around the game at this level still.
  20. Looking forward to this week's mental gymnastics that the Rennie apologists have in store. Will be great
  21. Indeed. Just like Luke Holt happened to be the best goalkeeping prospect we could snare from that big open market.
