  1. Absolutely ! When you read back at some of the posts on here stating that “Killie is the wrong choice”, “ Friday night is rubbish”, or any other moan, then tomorrows attendance will get right up them ! COYB
  2. Fixtures out….Fireworks night (5th nov) at home to Dunfermline. Need to travel to their place on 2nd Jan. other dates against them…17th Sept away…8th April at home.
  3. sorry.... but this is a match solely to commemorate Crunchie, invite his friends, ex team mates and family down. The focus is on the wee man, irrispective of opposition. To have done it with a league match v Dunfermline or the first game of the season would have just totally distracted it from the occasion it should be. Those that go will be there to show their appreciation to a Falkirk legend and nothing else !
  4. As a fan, I would like to see The Craig Gowans Stand ........... although it would take some persuading of his family to accept it and would bring back unhappy memories ....so in all probablilty a non-starter. However , it would have been a fitting memory to a young Bairn taken too soon !!!
  5. Have to admit I'm surprised by this. There was an issue in getting shirts signed during Covid and then framed by Fanatikool (think KK was at fault for this) and I didnt get mine until the start o fthe next season. However, Sharon at the club did keep me informed. Normally it's not an issue.
  6. If the club got shafted by Clarke EPOS.... can any one tell me why they are still prominent on the clubs website ?
  7. I sometimes despair at what our fans will moan at. It took 2 and a half years to get this accomplished, at times against an uncoopertaive and hostile board and we still get folk complaining. I don't think people understand what a mammoth task this was to get the project up and running, to finance it, to organise all the details that will make it a success on the day and to bring it to fruition. Then folk take umbrage at the fact that it's Killie that is the opposition for the stand opening, simply because we lost to them in a cup final in 97 and in the play off's. If we go down that route then we can't play against Rangers or ICT. Why stop there?...what about losing to Partick in a LC semi, Dundee Utd in a play off or Stenhousemuir in the Stirlingshire Cup? What about the teams that voted against us getting promoted because we didn't have an all seater stadium? Realistically this is as probably good as it gets, if we consider Crunchies links. Hibs didnt want to play, Leeds and Chelsea would be a non-event with their under 16 team turning up (if they deemed to play us at all). That leaves Albion Rovers, Camelon Jnrs, Bonnybridge Rose and Stirling Boys Club. Hardly a huge draw for the crowds. This event has nothing to do with Killie. It's all about honouring one of our own, a legend at our club. Time some folk backed off and just accept the fact that this is for Kevin, no one else !
  8. I’m pretty sure that the deal with Morrisons included land owned by the council. We only got a fraction of the total cash from the sale of Brockville and the surrounding land. The council did stuff us though. If the Camelon mafia in the Labour group got their way, we would have got no council cash at all to build the Stadium. In hindsight, might actually have been a good thing in the long run.
  9. Good timing to get his own squad in order. Despite the rumours, it appears our new BoD have been doing the work diligently in the background to get this over the line. Fingers crossed we reached our lowest point last season. Onwards and upwards. COYB!
  10. Heard from someone (cant remember who) that the pitch was pretty much on a downer as it was neglected. Some tlc from the Groundsman has actually helped to preserve it's lifetime. Still needs to be replaced in a year or so though. I've actually played on the new generation pitches and they are incredibly good. Jim Dawson at Murrayfield has a grass / plastic hybrid. Costs a fortune though.
  11. Dumbarton for some reason were members of the Stirlingshire FA when it was part of Scottish footballs organisational structure. Think it’s defunct now, but historical links still apply
  12. New strips might be here already. Sponsor may not be signed up yet.
  13. We have a marketing expert on the new Board?
  14. There was always something dodgy about Clarke EPOS...a company with virtually nothing on their web pages except sport sponsorship. I would be surprised if they were sponsoring us again next season. Heard a wee rumour from a mate of mine that they didn't pay full whack and screwed the club, but don't know how accurate this is.
