The Falkirk FC Thread


Recommended Posts

As I said earlier. They were damned if they did speak and damned if they didn’t. This situation is not of their making. They have sent the info to the club for them to look at and said that is it.

I say it again the decision to roll out the red carpet on Monday was just wrong before everything was concluded.

Jesus I am sick of this.

it's a lot lot harder to hound out an absent owner whose hiding out back in the US if it all goes sour.
There's no way he is moving to Edinburgh anyway and leaving behind his coffee empire in Manhattan, besides he's needed there as Wee Chad can only work weekends and every second Tuesday and isn't allowed to drive the van.
 
That's fair. I've heard Chad is an absolute liability around spring break time. He's also called 'wee' ironically, related as he is to Hulk Hogan.

Absolutely incredible that some of our fans are now having a go at BtB.

Already taken in by this guy and giving the MSG the benefit of the doubt in all of this.

Something’s not right. I trust and back BtB 100% on this.

This is the crux of the matter I think. Yet again it's been proven that the absolute fucking eejits masquerading as the custodians of our club couldn't run a piss up in a brewery. Parading this guy before the due diligence was done was just asking for trouble and the egg on face from this alone will f**k up any semblance of credibility we have left. It's like selling your house and telling all the other buyers to f**k off before the purchaser has concluded missives.

Morons. All of them.

This isn't really based on much but I just don't trust this guy. As with most things in life it all seems way too good to be true and something about it just doesn't add up. We have no debt and i'm concerned about whether his intention is to use the club as leverage against future debts with regards to these business venture ideas. Sure there are no assets currently to strip but if he puts the club into debt, sells off the assets he used the debts to finance and leaves without paying off the debts, which are linked to the club and not him, doesn't that leave us utterly screwed? I'll freely admit I don't really know too much about this stuff and am 100% not itk but this seems like a possibility and I can't see any other reason he'd plough the amounts of money being discussed into Falkirk.

I guess alot of fans like me have sat back pessimistic but stayed muted. Fair fucks if BTB uncover the football equivalent to Fyre Festival but this statement is discredited by mentioning the Sun.

Clearly someone at the club leaking it to the sun, Kenny said it wasn’t them. Apologies guys xx

Likely there was no leak at all, just the Sun trying to put a sinister spin on a total non story.

Totally agree, many on here asked the BTB boys to put out a statement and now they have they are getting slated.

I have followed the Bairns for 46 years and I can honestly say, apart from the administration era I have never felt this low towards the club. I am sick of the whole episode, I still haven't renewed my ST and I am not far away from giving up.

Nothing ever seems to run smoothly at the club and as fans we constantly get shafted. Why oh why couldn't the board have taken the fans money.

As I said earlier. They were damned if they did speak and damned if they didn’t. This situation is not of their making. They have sent the info to the club for them to look at and said that is it.

My only issue with the BtB statement is that I think they would have been correct to lay out their concerns. They are after simply a body to represent us

They'd be useless as representatives if they can't keep stuff like this confidential until whatever their concerns are, are properly checked out. I'd say their statement was as far as they could go in terms of keeping fans informed, unfortunately they've probably just unleashed a feeding frenzy.

But right now they arent representatives. Campbell is the boards preferred bidder. BtB are ours. At this point however, they have reverted to a group of Falkirk fans and as such, have every right to take the gloves off IMO. Unless its not viewed by them as something terminal to the deal. They have given the MSG the chance to sweep it under the rug

I don’t think there is one person who will give them stick for airing their concerns to the MSG. However there was no need to leak it to a newspaper which it looks as though they have. Also the statement for me gives the fans more worry and anguish when,
If things are not correct would have come out.
