You must be at it?

It depends what you want from a Full Back, firstly you want one that can tackle and read the game, one tick Tom Tiawo.  Anyone that’s watched the game could see more of a hard tackling Full Back in Tiawo than Kidd.

Blair Alston playing there whilst Taiwo played RM at Starks in the 2-2 game tells you all you need to know. My love for the wee gremlin is well documented, but he was shite at RM and his tackling game was rendered totally ineffective. Imagine how that would have played at RB...

He used to be brutal for going out to meet a winger and being totally squared up to them so it was a piece of pish for them to go inside and go past him. Everything about his game was built for the middle of the park.

My first thought wasn’t heavily reduced entry to be honest but along the lines of promoting existing schemes. We currently let 1 primary school per game get 50 group tickets & free bus travel.

Open this up to EVERY primary school aged child for non category A games (not the free travel) and we could get us a few hundred extra on the gate.

Likewise, the community teams get 1 game per season too, open the north stand up & let them in.

We already get Brilliant crowds of around 4,000 Home fans but could easily get another 1,000 by expanding those 2 avenues.

Re partially reduced entry, I’d have no issues if they did a deal for 2 games say at £30. Fiver off each game & still slightly more being paid versus our ST per match (£13.88 for a South stand adult).


Someone from FFC must have read my post....

Played left back ..

I put Mansfield on my coupon purely because he was playing. Astonishingly the goal didn't come down his side 

Betting against Crawley could be a rich seam to mine until they get wise to him

Bang average at best. Can't see him being good enough for the premiership.

Steven Pressley's got the Carlisle job. Must have been that MASSIVE job in England he was holding out for.

Not a good striker at all, very very POOR at this level. Wouldn’t suit Dundee in the top flight either. Reminds me of a smaller Marcus Haber. You’re probably more likely to stay up if you were to take on our young prospect Kevin Ohara on a short term deal. We’d all be GUTTED to see him leave. I wouldn’t recommend Nelson. Stay away is what I say.

Agreed.

He is surprisingly down to earth though.....

Edibairn obviously got done the dirty from a burd from Sunderland and has been raging ever since. Surely the only explanation for him despising Robson and Nelson as much as he does.

Hi! I recorded a podcast with one-time Falkirk star David Weatherston and I think you will all enjoy it.

This is the fourth installment of a five-part podcast and sees him talking about his two years with the Bairns. I can't recommend this enough - some brilliant stories, funny throughout and great insight into his time there.
