The Falkirk FC Thread


Recommended Posts

Yup, probably hold the wee guy down and make him sign it with his blood, nice to make it to 2017 (Makes Craig Sibbald 22 at the end of the 2017 season, the maximum age you're allowed to be for a club to claim compensation if need be.)

Another way for Falkirk to make money from there young players, it's a kiddies factory you have there, obviously looking to cash in as soon as possible for more come January or the end of the season.

Not the worst business plan as its worked in the past for Falkirk but is this the right route for Scottish football to go down?

After all these compensation packages are now under strict review from UEFA, the Falkirk safety net could soon be out the window.

f**k up you banger.

Yes, those are words.

@markbeck94: Gutted about how it ended but delighted with my time at Falkirk, met some great people and gained a lot of experience to take into next year

@markbeck94: Thanks to everyone involved, fantastic club to who I wish all the best for next season #FFC

Apologies in advance.

Not sure how it came about but Ned Jnr and I were discussing own goals this morning which resulted in a Google search for this:

Not as bad as I remember ... and it's a bit harsh on Jim that it's pretty much all a decent defender is remembered for.

Is that Alan 'Postman Pat' Lawrence that runs in on Marshall ?

(probably best to turn the volume down <_< )

Please please don't sign Callum Tapping. He's probably not any better than our first choice midfielders plus he's a bellend

If McGovern does end up going, Holts policy of signing a young keeper to let him and Bowman compete for the number 1 jersey ain't the answer IMO

Outright odds on Paddy Power

Rangers 1/2

Hearts 4/1

Hibs 4/1

Falkirk 25/1

QoS 50/1

Raith 66/1

Livi 150/1

Dumbarton 250/1

Alloa 400/1

Cowdenbeath 400/1

No very tempting odds there, but fancy Cowdenbeath to do better than predicted.

P.S. Still bitter about how we threw away promotion in 2012 when Dundee replaced Rangers. Sold our best players after the Celtic game and played the rest of the season like it didn't matter. It was fucking obvious there was a chance of the second team going up. We'll be in the Championship for the foreseeable future..

Why why why the f**k are Rangers strong favourites ahead of the 2 Edinburgh sides?

Why not? They will end up having 3-4 tines more season ticket holders than every other team in the league. They will have a playing budget of around £7m which will be five times bigger than their nearest rival.

They will have a pool of players which will include international players from a number of countries. The thing holding them back IMO is McCoist. His loyalty from their fans has gone now and if they have a poor start they will ditch him.

Hibs are in as much turmoil as them. Hearts won't throw money at their side as they need to pay back their sugar lady first and live within their means.

The best of the rest last season, us, will have a budget similar to last season which was shown to be unable to get us out of the poorest 1st Division ever.
