  1. It's definitely odd to suggest they couldn't find anyone better and do a deal for them throughout January. Whilst they're top it's all academical but should they slip (here's hoping) it's going to seem like a terrible view to have taken. Goes without saying I'm glad they've not strengthened.
  2. Completely theoretical and not sure if we incur any costs over and above the catering contracts but what about the disposable consumables like cups etc. Does that cost get factored into the cleaning/disposal and is additional costs for waste management or is that parcelled up with the council service. Outside looking in we might only guess at true costs of running the operation.
  3. Aye I'd have to agree. Can't see him kicking a ball for us again even if he's going with our best wishes i.e. been told he's not getting renewed. With his injury record is he likely to put his body on the line if needed when he's got a paying gig lined up ...
  4. Indeed. Going by the Falkirk Daft podcast with KJ we seem to have a good relationship with the council when it was brought up about moving operations out. However, going by my weekly visits (poor facilities replenishment, which I assume is the councils purview) and the public relationship between the two you'd wonder if the club and council knew each other - Some examples of where they could jointly do more to help each other in my view.

  5. Given our CEO's experience and skill set I don't think the rumoured 50K is that bad, all considered! On the utilisation of staff, I expect there is a trade-off that's been calculated in tie-ups like Greaves and Ticketing which may not be obvious. The one I currently can't fathom and can only surmise is due to our catering supplier arrangements is the deal with SeatService. One of their USP's is increasing concession revenue and yet we haven't taken advantage of the service and generate some additional monies.
  6. Telling the story is definitely key. Most supporters should know what the aims of the FSS are by now and there will have been a few rounds of directors being nominated from the membership - Hearing about the achievements that have been made as a direct result of FSS involvement might persuade people to join. Also, some vox pops from the FSS demographic about why it's good to get involved and get some "real" voices to articulate why joining is important. No doubt all these avenues have been discussed but throwing it out anyways.
  7. This. Great we've freshened up the squad but we must have a fair few players entering the final months of their deals and the one thing Holt got right was continuity is required. We'd all hoped for signings but seeing regulars extend their contracts would be welcome too.
  8. I don't think there was any deeper meaning other than today was going to be the day folk had been begging for signing announcements. The starfish meme words are the key part - not the tentacles
  9. Jordan Allan only on a one year deal so we've probably paid peanuts in the grand scheme (remaining months of his contract perhaps?). Sounds good tho
  10. Aw shit. We've all been done and they're announcing the new North stand sponsor ...
  11. Looking ever more likely that Kennedy won't end the month with us.
  12. Sometimes the easiest answer is the obvious one. Circumstances have changed and those that had disposable cash now don't. It does seem that folk are looking for a smoking gun - like board differences or personalities - which aren't necessarily there.
  13. Either way you want to cut it the Patrons have invested £10k (or more) into the club: https://www.falkirkfc.co.uk/2021/11/21/new-fan-investment-in-falkirk-fc/
