The Falkirk FC Thread

Recommended Posts

He was very good in his second as well tbh. Rank rotten in the 3rd. Future Falkirk manager IMO. Pedro strutting up and down the touchline in a suit is a marvelous thought. Pressley just looks a c**t. I'd even let Pedro get away with a pair of pishy brown shoes.

Pedro has already played for us this season anyway.

If Pedro comes back I will get a semi. Twaddle returning would render me flaccid 4 life, fucking atrocious player who infuriated me more than any other in our most infuriating of seasons (10/11).

I blame him single handedly for the decline of Scottish football.

There's a rumour going about that Falkirk have been in touch with Mark Roberts down at Ayr United about bringing Chris Smith back to Somerset Park.

There's been a major bust up between Pressley and Smith. He'll never kick another ball for us.

What's the point?

The fans gave their views on the Sevco situation and the board ignored them completely and voted the way they wanted to anyway.

I would say no to the 12-12-18. It hasnt worked eleswhere so theres no chance it will work here. I still dont see whats wrong with 16. Play each team twice have a winter break between Jan & Feb or even better move to the summer. Sky & ESPN need something to show in the summer. Let them offer more tv money if we move to the summer.

But no doubt the money men will ignore the fans again. It will happen and then in 2-3 years time they will change it again as it wont work

For ourselves I think it's a very good plan, financially anyway. Our income should be much more stable.

It's a farcical set up. After the summer I vowed I wouldn't spend another penny at the club until the board changed the way they view the fans. The lip service is a joke considering the begging bowl requests of the last few years. The season ticket holder is viewed as a willing mug and the pay at the gate fan deemed not as important as those who provide the often required soft loans. I can't shake the feeling that I'm of more interest to the club if I go to 1 concert in the summer, rather than getting along to 3 or 4 games a season. For a 'football club' that's saddening.

I waivered at Christmas. I almost bought my two year old a replica kit. Only the shop opening hours prevented me from doing so. Now that this 12-12-18 has appeared and is being pushed through I'm glad I held fire.

-Currently we have 1 guaranteed promotion place to the top 12. Under these proposals we will have no guaranteed promotion spots.

-Currently the SPL have 1 guaranteed relegation spot. Under these proposals there is no guaranteed relegation spot.

-One arguement against a larger top division is meaningless games and a lack of interest. The new proposals will result in more meaningless games. Club X have 3 points after 12 games. They are heading for the Championship league. The remaining 10 pre-split games are worthless. Players can be rested etc. Then they are rewarded by starting afresh.

Call me a cynic but a side made up of academy kids is going to struggle in a 4 up, 4 down league of 8.

Until we are shown cast iron financial figures proving the benefits to clubs like ours it must be a no. Accepting these changes on a promise that things will be better, trust us, ain't good enough.

I'm sure the board will tell us if the majority of fans that respond to this vote in favour. After the garbage in the summer they owe it to the fans to tell us if we voted against it (and if they are willing to do as we wished for a change).

Some comments about Vaulks from Tranmere fans when he was given a new 6 month contract at the start of the season.

[quoteHe said in his post-match interview, following injuries to McChrystal and Goodison and with Taylor away on international duty that "we don't have any specialist centre-backs to put out against Chesterfield". Why overlook Vaulks? He may only be 18 but he's clearly a specialist centre-back (despite Ronnie's reluctance to play him there throughout pre-season).

I hope this isn't a sign of things to come with regards to Vaulks, because from what I've seen he's a talented lad with lots of potential for the future.]

agree Mat the R ! Will is for me the best talent we've produced since Hume ! a massive tallent with so mutch to offer on the pitch and some cash long term to balance the books !

I've said all along he's potentially good enough for at least 3rd choice this season. Yes he's not 6ft + but neither was cannavaro and he was quite useful! he can win headers most 6foot defenders can't, his passing is better than most midfielders and he gives it 110% A few years down the line he'll be playing at a higher level. (hopefully with us!!!)

an

again agree TBTRFC ! watched him come thru and apart from great ability, he shows a captains calm and maturity on the field, and can buy those few seconds when needed ! not going over board ! but this lad is something special ! be so sad if we let him go or don't make the most of what he has to offer ! not like we'll have anyone else anything near to him !!
