  1. Falkirk collections has some pictures of Brockville. Really good resource for the whole of the Falkirk area.
  2. Kennedy was especially a let down. I just don't see what he adds and given a choice between McGuffie and him I'd pick McGuffie! The games where Morrison plays that more subdued, I think, is to protect the fullback and so he can't drive at the opposition the same way as other games where we won't be under pressure. I don't think it's over as some are suggesting. Put in perspective - To come from where we were last season to having the league leaders need a smash-and-grab performance to confirm their 'superiority' I think we're still in it.
  3. I thought we were decent without creating much. The play acting from them was embarrassing and bar the set piece they had not much more than us.
  4. Hate to defend them but the Rangers kit, although similar, did have matching sleeves having compared them. https://www.footballkitarchive.com/scottish-premiership-kits/ Not inconclusive but does seem that it is consistent that sleeves have had to match.
  5. Over 50% (52.38) isn't great. God help us when we do hit a really rocky patch. I concede we were poor and the tail end of Alloa and result for Kelty must be the warning that we need to be "on-it" from first to last whistle, as if that should be needed to be said. However, painting Saturday as "normal service resumed" does a disservice to what's been achieved from where we were.
  6. It was a bad result but some posters need to get a grip. We've lost once since the last Kelty game. That does not suggest that we have been found out.
  7. We are 4th (joint 3rd) and 4pts off top yet those players don't merit getting picked. Christ we need a clear out in January!!!
  8. Yesterday was disappointing and the players let themselves down against Kelty - again. They are our bogey team this year. Also disappointing to see posters scapegoating Nesbitt, McGuffie and Mckay even though the goals lost had nothing to do with them. The team failed 1st half yesterday not because the named individuals were lacking.
  9. That was very frustrating, and he did similar in the 1st half. You'd think having scored a banger the Saturday before he'd have been willing to shoot but seemed hesitant. His teammates couldn't have complaints had he attempted to recreate his last at any point last night. Ach, well! Splitting hairs tbh.
  10. In defence of @Bairn in Exile, I think he was giving examples of criticism that would be levelled at the board under both scenarios i.e. running a tight ship vs throwing money at it. I don't think he's implying that the BoD have or haven't done one or the other.
  11. Some sympathy today for the ref. The angle FTV shows it looks like a slip but from the KM Stand it was a push. God knows what the ref ultimately saw from another angle as he was. His linesman should've helped him out.
  12. Keen to see the highlights later regarding the incident with Alegria and the Clyde 'keeper. The officiating was suspect again and summed up by the ref overruling the far side linesman even though he hadn't a clue and the lino had the best view.
  13. Sadly have to agree with this. Firstly, yesterday's statement was clearly pitched to ratchet up the need for investment/funds which until then had been downplayed coupled with the sudden announcement of directors appearing on FalkirkDaft - I'd wager to reiterate the perilous financial position the club really is in.
  14. Some issues, for me, with this communication and FSS/Club relationship generally - The organic growth of the society does seem to have been forced, somewhat. There was a perceived up-take after Holt was emptied, which I assume many attributed to the FSS involvement but unconfirmed as far as I'm aware. There's an argument to be made that this was the catalyst for a lot of reactionary members rather than increasing the membership through an actual example of influence. It also contradicts a stated aim of "... gradually increasing the proportion of fan ownership". The latest update doesn't tell us anything new but seems to imply that the FSS remit now isn't purely to safeguard the club but instead has rapidly progressed to a model where they need to accelerate the fan ownership part hence the 90% comment as I believe ST numbers should never imply membership. One point I can (and hope to) expect pushback on, is what has the FSS achieved for the subscriptions: Yes more shares but what tangibly has that meant? If the FSS are improving X, Y and Z on behalf of us all shout it from the roof-tops and show the difference they've made for the funding they're given. Let me be clear - I'm all for the FSS but I am one of the 90% and not in a position to commit to ongoing contributions - at the moment. I believe it's legitimate to ask whether the FSS, at the moment, could be perceived as a stream of funding the clubs losses, by the back door instead of the club charging ST + £120 to cover the budget set which is a different proposition.
  15. It was against St. Johnstone and is reported in the Courier: St Johnstone star David Wotherspoon suffers injury scare (thecourier.co.uk) Would appear we conceded 4 from the report but doesn't mention much about the actual match.
  16. As I understand it there will be no bank hol for the funeral but there will be one for the coronation.
  17. All good points but broadcasters could apologise for reduced TV coverage (not like anything other than news is on) and avoid games being cancelled this weekend. Police aren't mandatory at football grounds and like any crime, would respond (eventually) if called in and around the stadiums. Instead fans will need to mourn QE in the pubs, restaurants, cinemas, hairdressers and sports centres of their towns and cities this weekend
  18. It was a poor, probably avoidable result on Saturday. McGlynn knows it wasn't good enough and I don't doubt the players will be disappointed but the castigation of everyone - including the usual supsects - is as expected as it is OTT. The false equivalence of comparing Tony Parks to Nicky Hogarth is bonkers but at least you've got a new scapegoat to bang on about.
  19. Next time I'll post we'll take a doing and shouldn't even bother turning up as the opposition are a shoe-in to win! Sorry for my optimism . You must've been ecstatic you could post that when you saw the score. What a life!
  20. The online ticketing already takes care of card payment - away from the turnstile. I am not advocating for removing a cash gate.
  21. Would have to disagree with this one - Option to buy online and download to your device removes the need for payment at the turnstiles. I think you potentially introduce a bottleneck if you allow card payment at the point of entry.
