  1. See also Keene’s header that he couldn’t get on target. Neither player is good enough but the idea that we have a 20 goal a season striker sitting on the bench is nonsense.
  2. Keena did absolutely nothing when he came on other than put a good chance wide. He did nothing last week other than give the ball away. Ruth (while absolutely not good enough to lead the line) at least would have scored a couple were it not for the heroics of the Peterhead goalkeeper. I don’t know what it is with some of our fans seeing players who are frankly rubbish as saviours. It was Kevin O’Hara a few years ago, then David Mitchell, Tommy Robson and now Aidan Keena for some reason.
  3. I actually thought we deserved to win that despite not playing well- Brett Long made a couple of fantastic saves. Ultimately though 1 win in 7(8 if you include the Kilmarnock game) is totally unacceptable for Falkirk Football Club in the third tier of Scottish football. We could well be 8 points adrift by this time tomorrow and the aim then surely turns to securing a play off position. Which is far from guaranteed as we’re now just as close to the relegation play off as the promotion one! Surely Sheerin has to go but I don’t think we have the quality in the squad to push for much higher than 4th even with a change.

  5. Tbh it’s clear Sheerin wants to play 1 upfront. I don’t think there’s much difference between the 2 (poor) options we have for that role. Keena has done very little in his time at the club under different managers. Imo Ruth gives us more as a line striker (hardly a high bar) but I’d be happy to replace them both in January.
  6. I see there’s another talking head calling for restrictions. Tbh the fact that placing massive restrictions on people’s lives in order to ‘protect the NHS’ has become normalised is deeply worrying. Dr Eleanor Gaunt, a virologist at Edinburgh University, said pressure on in Scottish hospitals was “only going to get worse” and called on ministers to reintroduce some restrictions to stem the case numbers. “If you look at the causes that are underlying that it looks as though this is due to staff sickness and staff having to self-isolate and bed shortages as well and all of those factors are directly attributable to high case numbers of coronavirus. “This is something we have intervention strategies to bring back under control and . . . in these areas and under this high pressure, it’s something we need to consider enacting now because it’s only going to get worse.” Experts are warning not to rule out the prospect of a further lockdown if cases are not brought back under control. Any fresh curbs on freedoms are likely to include capping the number of people allowed to attend indoor gatherings or the possible reintroduction of social distancing rules.
  7. Carrie Rawlins was a management consultant at Deloitte. Gordon Wright seems to work in project management for a finance company.
  8. Gordon Colburn is a management consultant rather than an accountant I believe
  9. Tbh the owner of a corner shop would know that a fundamental rule of business is that you don’t go out of your way to publicly insult your customers. You’d have thought our PR consultant on the board would have realised similar.
  10. Gordon Colborn is a management consultant I believe
  11. It shows just how bad the recruitment has been that the the first example used of ‘improvement’ was a player who’s been injured for most of the season!
  12. Yep, not like social distancing would make whole sectors totally unviable or anything. This is totally ridiculous- it’s not the responsibility of the public to ‘protect’ the NHS by massively restricting their lives. Particularly not now that everyone who wants to be is long vaccinated.
  13. Don’t think you’ve picked it up wrongly. Macfarlane used the examples of Mercer and Leitch to try and argue that they’ve been replaced by better players. I’m sure his words were ‘Williamson is a much better player than Mercer and Nesbitt is much better than Leitch’ or similar. He seemingly had further examples prepared that he didn’t get to. I did find it quite unprofessional tbh. Will be interesting to see if it makes the recording.
  14. What wasn’t mentioned is that the reason we’ve had such high turnover of players and managers is that we continually manage to recruit even worse replacements for those we let go.
  15. I’m sure he said Wilson was not someone they expected to start every week but hoped he would be a useful option as this is apparently his first chance at full time football!
  16. The comments about Krasniqi were very bizarre. Sheerin basically said he was only signed as he’s costing us very little if anything and it’s an opportunity to ‘build a relationship’ with Huddersfield (I’m not too sure how it can be a positive one if he’s not getting a game).
  17. I really couldn’t believe what Colborn was coming out with. Going out of your way to blame a group who are rightfully unhappy as it is is surely right at the top of PR tactics not to use.
  18. Tbh I thought the evening went as expected. The board were largely on the defensive and none of the answers were very revealing. I don’t know what Gordon Colburn was thinking but his comments about fans’ behaviour being unacceptable were totally tone deaf. I also felt Gary deans came across as quite arrogant at points. Phil Rawlins spoke well and I actually thought Holt did ok. Sheerin seems like a really nice guy but frankly doesn’t seem confident at all. Doesn’t sound like Hetherington will be dropped anytime soon as Sheerin said he’s one of the most important players in the team and that Krasniqi is miles off first team level.
  19. It’s back to the ‘I make no apologies for keeping people safe’ nonsense
  20. In what sense are Wilson and Dowds ‘proven operators’? The proven to be not good enough variety?
  21. It’s full already by the looks of the eventbrite page
  22. Tbh I don’t have an issue with us having someone at the club specifically to focus on signing players. The cost is much lower than having to sign a whole new team and pay off the existing one every 6 months as we’ve been doing. Clearly though Holt is not the man to do that as he’s managed to put together possibly our worst squad since we’ve been in league 1.
  23. Tbh I hate to think what Sheerin has in mind for next week if he’s going to sacrifice creativity to tighten up at the back. We don’t create anything as it is! You could play back the last few interviews from Houston, Hartley, McKinnon and M and M and I suspect they’d contain the same platitudes about ‘working hard on the training ground’ and ‘things not going for us’.
