No reason why we couldn't have had a part time/full time  reserve side this season.  Would cost you buttons to have a few guys as fillers along with the first team squad.

We struggled to field reserve teams last season, so can't see how you come to the conclusion we could this season with less players nevermind that it would cost buttons !!

Don't get the big unveiling of temp managers until you get a permanent one! As for MCcracken it seems as if he is on loan to Falkirk from Peterhead 😂 seaside league stuff right enough.... 

Shhhhhhhh

They are here for at least the season

You just  fill it with part time players who are looking for a game. Its all about keeping guys fit and playing so signing up a few part time shirt fillers to make up a reserve side is hardly going to cost much at all.

This would be my personal team. And it’s mainly just to get rid of the players I hate seeing in a Falkirk shirt. 
GK. Robbie Mutch
RB. Gary Miller 
CB. Michael Doyle
CB. Lewis Toshney 
LB. Lewis Moore
RM. Robbie Leitch 
CM. Michael Tidser
CM. Marago Gomis
LM. Ross MacLean
ST. Declan McMannus
ST. Louis Longridge 
 
We are a 4-4-2 club. I think just go back to basics. Two up front. And that team gives it a bit of a freshen up. Durnan & Buch at CB are a train wreck. And I just cannot stand Paul Dixon. 


Thank god you ain’t picking the team!

I think you'd be surprised the money the part time players earn but we would need more players who can't get a game,sounds like a logic plan that George Craig would come up with added that the majority if not all part time players would not being available for reserve games due to games being in their full time work rota and again the cost isn't buttons

We filled reserve teams with trialists at various points last season and got the results the team sheet deserved, it's not all about winning at that level but it is with competing

You live a very sad existence ma friend.

Perhaps so.

Yet you feel the need to reply to almost all of my posts so I'll let others speculate what that says about you chief.

It was a few scouts i know  that said thats the way we should've gone this season. There's always players looking for games and are happy to turn out for next to nothing

Empty  Leitch, MacLean, Miller, Moore, Dixon, Durnan, McShane, & Johnstone. 

Add 3 left-footers between defence & midfield, and our now-traditional January squad re-build needn't be quite so excessive this year...

A selection worthy of 4th place in League 1.

With the two that have taken over, there is no way Robson would be near the team.

What makes you say that?

We'll only know whether some of these guys are good enough when we have someone with half a clue managing them I'd say.  Sammon and Macmillan should be able to bang the goals in if you create chances for them . I still think our biggest mistake in the summer was signing a team of players used to playing at a higher level. You obviously need players of better quality but we also should've been targeting some of the better players in league one or that have recently been in league one.  Boys like Agnew at East Fife and Trouten at Alloa.  Guys that know all about league one.

Aye, I can just imagine your reaction if he'd signed Agnew & Trouten. You'd have been doing your nut!

We can only hope LM & DM have the same effect on the playing staff as Jim Duffy had on that left by Dave Clarke.

Which amounts to what, another 5 contractual pay-offs ? Never going to happen. Who knows, maybe Miller and McCracken will see something in somebody like Leitch and give him an opportunity, unlike the previous clown who signed then immediately ostracised him.

Tbf think he was only ever signed to fill the bench for the first few initial games until he signed other players, and giving how he’s played when I have seen him play I’m not disappointed that he’s not near the team.
