Whereas we will now bring through no players at all from the academy, not to mention the many millions of £s in transfer fees that were earned. I'm not saying we should revive the academy straight away but it should certainly be a future consideration.

It was more than 7 first team players too btw.

We’re about to get more for Will Vaulks than all the academy sales in total

Utter nonsense. Kilmarnock, Motherwell, Ross County, Inverness, Patrick Thistle and St Johnstone have all been in the top 6 in recent years and all have crowds smaller than or similar to Falkirk. The idea that we were getting ideas above our station is rubbish.

Have they all did so with massive increases in budget from one season to the next for their managers to waste on their old mates? Or have they just kept doing what they've been doing well and it's eventually come?

Hi Craig, or do you prefer Margaret? :lol:

The only way to turn next year into a positive is by getting promoted with a team that ends up having the quality for top 4 championship football. Risky but I believe you can only achieve that if you get an experienced spine and fill up the rest with youngsters that can grow in league 1 to become the required standard. Two established CBs, a holding mid and an attacking mid with preferably pacey youngsters around them. Can't believe I'm saying this but we're reaching a level where O'Hara could become relevant again.

People need to stop this. O'Hara was rotten for stenhousemuir in League 1. He isn't good enough.

We’d have Mutch in goal, Scobbie at left back, Paton and Waddington at centre mid, Robson at left wing and Todorov and O’Hara up front if the fans picked the team next season. Bonkers.

To be fair to the lad he was playing in a team that eventually finished second bottom. He was also being played out of position. I can see him getting another years contract in the hope that playing in League 1 might help his development

He’s scored 3 goals in 78 appearances mostly in league 1. No thank you.

Did I say I wanted him? My point is he is on low wages and they may think he'll be a worthwhile squad player. He needs to build a squad and he may feel he can use O'Hara to make up the numbers, which will allow him to spend the money elsewhere

Some big donut on the Facebook page wanting to re-sign Grant and build the team around him since he has just been released by Carlisle.. Another wanting to get Scobbie back because he knows what it's like to be a bairn. Another suggesting we buy back Vaulks and build the team around him. Some interesting individuals on that page..

Was unclear there, I don't want him in the team it just shows to me how far we've dropped. Instead of him getting to our level, we're getting near his.

I’m sure if enough of us remortgage there’s a real possibility we can get Vaulks back......

Giving O Hara another years contract to help his development is the definition of insanity (doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result) he hasnt changed any in the other years he has signed i wouldnt expect this one to make any odds.

The club are taking their time issuing the release list. But I don’t think a fifth complete rebuild in two years .would do us any good.

I’d be looking to realistically keep Dixon, McKenna, Edge, McGhee, Kidd, Paton, McShane and Petra.

Petra selling his car and looking for a quick sale, would suggest he is leaving the country,

I doubt McKenna's dad will allow him to sign on for a league one team, can see him staying high championship at worst.

Can see McGhee ending up at a Livingston or Hamilton as a backup. 

McShane has a fat arse so if no one else wants him, he might stay on.

Kidd will stay, he isnt good enough for anywhere else and will likely shine in League One

Edge and Dixon I reckon will sign up for next year, which I would be quite happy about

Anybody willing to keep “wee Kev” is aff their nut in my opinion. He wouldn’t look out of place at Camelon Juniors.
