The Falkirk FC Thread

Recommended Posts

I’d hope any decision would be communicated to the fans ASAP. I think the best option at this stage would be to accept the the bid from the local investors and then revisit the fan ownership set up when we’re back in the championship. There’s no point using £800k extra on the first team in league one.


You should use some of it to have a team that will piss the league and have the core of that side able
to compete at the top end of the championship the following season. No point scraping up and then have to sign 14/15 players if you manage to get up

Sometimes you read an article and an advert just lines up with it tremendously...

Kenny still not heard a cheap either way as of 10 minutes ago

 

I think the concerning point from the club statement was the investment comment that suggests someone else is going to put money in but the MSG remain in place but thats reading between the lines.

Well they are idiots whoever does that.

Who in there right mind will put cash in and keep the status quo? No one is. Who ever invests will be if not leading the decision making certainly at the forefront

I might be reading the whole situation wrong but the American consortium if i am right were the ones wanting to take over the club but wanting to invest in Sunderland, reading they dont know if the Sunderland one is going ahead as they didn't get promoted so hopeful whoever takes over solely has focus on us and no vested interest elsewhere.

I don't think the status quo can even be contemplated without change at board level we are going nowhere.

There are two American bids. This mob and Scott Davidson. The latter would be the better imo outside local people

Even if he was his recruitment would still have been better than Hartleys summer signing spree, to sign 17 players to and to call every single one of them shit takes a whole new level of shitness to do

Whoever is the new owner there can only be one question. Why ?

They must have a business plan so it contributes to their balance sheet. That has to be laid out to the fan's or forget goodwill.

Hopefully something along the lines of. Completing the stadium with a hotel/stand. Buying out the other part owners of Westfield. Getting it working 7 days a week to not only earn its keep but contribute to the squad. Present a  3, 5,10 year business plan with KPI's to ensure success. Importantly how much of any profits do they intend to take out the club.

Nice bit of journalism there with regards to the takeover x

As everyone who's ever worked at a reasonable size company knows... Bad news always comes out at 4pm on a Friday.


Not convinced anything will come out TBH. More likely to be a signing or two to try and sell STs.

Would you consider FFC a reasonable size company? Other than turnover it’s a small operation.

Also you’re suggesting they have the capability to think ahead and plan, which they haven’t done for a decade.

Nor am I. I meant what I said last night, I reckon they bottled it and nothing has changed.

If nothing changes it will be really interesting how the fans react. How long will the fans stay away or not renew season tickets. I honestly think this board are so arrogant and out of touch with the support that they think things will blow over and we will all just toddle up and renew our season tickets.
