The Falkirk FC Thread

Recommended Posts

Actually thought we started ok, at least had a bit of width in the team. First penalty was horrendous and so were we thereafter.  The lad fell into our player who was jumping for the ball and for whatever reason the ref gave it, awful decision.

2nd penalty probably was one for me, looked like mcshane clipped his feet. 

Raith probably should have scored a third before we got our very soft penalty.  Had that gone in then who knows but overall we were still very poor as we have literally no idea how to attack.

Must win for McKinnon next week, but it would just be prolonging the inevitable, the guy is clueless and has to go.

Telfer Gomis Tidser Connolly

McManus Sammon

The biggest thing for me is the fact we haven’t improved in over a month. The Montrose game should have been a wake up call. We wouldn’t have won if it hadn’t been for that keeper error. We haven’t scored or looked like scoring since. Nothing has changed so whatever he is doing at training isn’t working.

Damn close to the only lineup we can field. We started with 16 healthy and eligible. Add Vaughan (surprise) and subtract Bowie for sure and Davi possibly, we’re still up against it.

Your reserve team (pretty much who played today) looked little different than your starting team the last few road games. You have a bunch of player with experience above League One, but who don’t seem to be adapting to League One well and who certainly don’t look like they practice together. If Ray or whomever can conjure some team play, you’ll do well in this League...until then...

Wouldn’t dispute your assessment of our starting teams exploits tbf. But my angle of interest is, if you guys are going to be our biggest competition then maybe not all is lost. 

Sammon, McManus, Tidser and Gomis would have improved our performance no doubt, perhaps not the outcome but definitely better performances than they people who were given a chance today.

Yeah totally agree, for me it’s the work during the week that’s clearly not right just now. Needs to be addressed pronto or Ray and Darren will find themselves on the dole. Let’s remember Hartley only still has a job cause his family ties at cove.

Ray's LinkedIn profile is looking more delusional by the minute. Given that he has failed to mention his incompetence and duplicity with Morton looks as though Falkirk ain't going to get a mention there either.

Why don't you punt your smug faced assistant manager ang bring in Hopkin as your defensive coach.  The resulting team would be a hoot to watch.

Canny be fucked wi all the hot takes about how "we are going to struggle in this league if x y and z."

Pretty fucking obvious regardless of time spent in this league or any other that when you have a manager who goes away from home with zero intent to try and win matches it is going to backfire with losses and it is going to be turgid for the fans.

Folk need to remember that no one fucking team including Clyde has looked any good. All thats happening is teams are taking advantage of a puzzlingly passive, slow and ponderous approach from us right from the word go.

We are inviting them to take a point or three, they are following the script.

There is no analysis about "disrespecting the league" or whatever tired cliche is going to come out next, we are getting exactly what we are being set up to get.

The evidence was there last season actually I can remember myself and few others discussing the fact that (in context with when Queens beat Utd at Tannadice and IIRC did Alloa not beat County away?) we were just never getting a freak 3 points like that because theres just no way we would go and take the chance even whilst trying for a draw.

Ray seems to think "happy to take a draw" is the same as making no attempt to win.

Club can’t afford to wait to be sold before sorting out the manager. If they are selling to Campbell it isn’t happening in 5 minutes so get their heads together and bring in whoever they are wanting now. If they are not selling hunt him Monday morning if not before. Oh wait acting Chairman is away on holiday

Thought you guys looked very much like us last season. Some nice passages of passing football that ultimately delivered absolutely f**k all, with no real fight.

As I've said before, I think McKinnon should have gone after relegation, but I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt going into this season. Was happy with the squad he built - it is more than good enough to win this league, but it isn't happening. Time to go. We can't afford to gamble promotion this season.

Agree ! but worryingly  who would want to come to Falkirk in the situation we find ourselves. the only option is to stick with McKinnon until the ownership drama is settled. Nobody of any quality will come near us until that is done.

Don't dispute your assessment either...but don't discount Forfar or, especially, East Fife. EF look very strong this year, and have some depth to weather injuries.

It's a brilliant situation to come in to - best facilities and biggest budget in the league by a mile. If you're competent you should win the league.

I'd just tell him to stay away from the club for a few weeks and get someone else to take the team on a temp basis till the takeover is complete or doesn't happen. It's obvious the players cant stand his tactics and philosophy and have downed tools.  Surely someone else couldn't do any worse and you never know they may even manage to get the players playing. Let's face it we are getting nothing as long as this fuckwit continues in charge.

Ok so maybe MC did bump some poor old dear out her change during his taxi driving days but if he comes in and empties McKinnon then I’m all for him. 

This is awful

For Seaside 1, the players we have are good enough. The manager we have is not. That is really all there is to it.

If McKinnon has friends in the media, he is going to need them. It should be clear to everyone now that he is a dud.

The owners need to make their move pretty damned quickly.

Agree we should be a gig somebody would want - but it comes down to how the club is seen at the moment. New owner then maybe their own idea on who they want as a manager. That plants enough doubt to put people off.
