The Falkirk FC Thread

Recommended Posts

Took my 2 girls to Callendar Park today and couldn’t not stop in and see the Bairns exhibition in Callendar House before it closes next month. Would urge all Bairns to go see it soon.

 

Would be amazing to see some of the memorabilia in Behind The Goals to be honest.

CEO sneaked away before the game ended. Tells you everything you need to know about the man.

 

Jeez. You must have good eyesight.

Am now convinced Leo Fasans sole talent is looking a bit like Slaven Bilic.

Something to build on for the lad

To be honest, there’s precious few in our squad that look like football players, so if true, Fasan has gotten a head start on at least a dozen of them.

Maybe that was where “Mitch” misunderstood the brief. He took the phrase “as long as they look like a player, we’ll sign them” a bit too literally.

Get him in at centre half then. Got to be worth a chance.

I was at hospitality yesterday and outside KK not one director came near any of the boxes or the main lounge to speak to people.

CC was opposite to me across the aisle. He didn’t attempt to speak to me or anyone else for that matter.

Hospitality was very good by the way.......a bit too good emoji23.png

 

Shameful; I'm afraid you can't expect anything else from the Teflon Army

If that's true,and I have no reason to doubt the author, what the hell is going on? If Directors don't support the team to the bitter end  we have no chance. Time for big changes me think.

Now, Now have you people not read the Chairs Statement. The board is totally blameless; they  did everything on the advise of others. They did nothing at all wrong: in the appointment of Hartley and his cohorts, the appointment of the 'scout' or indeed allowing the signing of the diddies we now have as a team.  We are so fortunate to have such an illustrious CEO and Chair to take our Club to the next level.

Well reality check; I for one don't believe it. Have they never heard of the 'Buck Stops Here' ethos? They got us into this state; now accept responsibility for your mistake, apologise and leave.  And the next level is more likely to be league 1 rather than the Premiership

Strictly was back on our screens at 6:15 last night. If he had stayed til the end, then he would have missed the first twenty minutes.

Just watched Keith’s Falkirk FC Legends video on you tube and had a tear in my eye watching Chris Mitchell’s winning chip vs Ajax.

Such a talented young lad. What happened to young Chris puts everything into perspective.

That goal vs Ajax, friendly or not, immortalised you young man.

Rest in Peace.

I have just been looking over the archives on the “better meddle” website and I stand to be corrected that this is the worst start to a season in our  once proud clubs history the previous worst start to a season was 1968-69 when we were relegated to the old second division.

You shouldn't have admitted that. You'll be getting cold-called every week now to see if  you're paying up to come back. :lol:

Sold loads of season tickets, sponsors everywhere, everyone on here, the Facebook page and social media all wildly optimistic pre season, strange how the board never seen this disastrous start to the season coming after all, no-one else did! I'd slam the board for hanging a manager out to dry, not backing him so he can't bring in players etc but the cries to sack the board for doing exactly what the vast majority of fans were wanting over the last season and a half is just ridiculous. Paul Hartley on the other hand should never get another job I  football as long as he lives.

I really don't know what some people want the board to do.

The fans wanted Houston sacked and the board sacked him. Hartley was the overwhelming favourite with the fans to be appointed and the board did so. The fans wanted a clear out on the summer and the board backed him to do so. They then wanted him sacked and the board did so immediately.

A lot of people are complaining about Hartley being 'allowed' to sign the players he did. As I've said before, the whole point of having a football manager is to choose and sign players, and I can only imagine the fans' outrage if the board had stopped him from doing so.

No board is going to have the same football knowledge as a manager anyway, so how could they have overruled him even if they wanted to? Posters were queuing up on here to w**k themselves silly at how great Hartley's signings were(and some are still doing so).

You see this sort of shite boils my piss.
Firstly have you decided to plough money in and start to try and steer this club to nirvana? I guess the answer is no but please prove me wrong?
Who seriously would want to be on the board at our club any seriously successful business person even if a fan is going to be too busy with their day job so what does that leave? The likes of lex or Margaret who are big fishes in this tiny wee pond that is falkirk and want a bit of kudos for the faux celebrity status it brings.
Out board haven’t done anything seriously wrong apart from being pretty weak and ineffectual.
They appointed Houston which in itself provided our most successful manager since yogi giving us second twice in the strongest field this league has seen. In his shite season a more decisive board would have backed him maybe by either giving him cash to buy a few free agents or advising him they would back him until the January window where he could fix things but no they let it slide until they panicked.
They then got in Hartley which on the face of it was a decent move, the fans approved and were happy.
They let him have freedom of player choice and do what he did end of season and during the summer basically replacing a whole team. But he was the manager who picks the team so were they wrong in letting him do that? Every one here was creaming themselves with the summer signings ffs! Yeah they should have had a sense check on such a fucking madcap plan but hey no FM aficionados on here spotted it.
Three league games in it turns out Hartley’s plan is merde and quite rightly they bin him and get in Ray how he ever agreed is beyond me looking at our squad.
Now they release a statement which basically said were on the ball and trying to fix it but there’s no cash. They are trying there best and are not going to plough any money in after all it’s their money, if you think that’s wrong plough in your life savings.
So as I said they are pretty weak and ineffectual but who better is throwing their hat into the ring as who seriously would want to be on the board of a company the will never make money and it’s paying public expect them to pay in rather than take a wage?
Rambling I know but wtf??
