Folk already turning on Cracks and Miller are pathetic 

They've hardly even had a bad start 

To be fair, I haven’t turned on them. I didn’t want them to start with and don’t think they have the skills and knowledge required to do the job.

At the moment at least half of the team wants to launch the ball at the earliest opportunity.

No chance of us winning the league with that, we need someone in midfield to take the ball off defence and make something happen. I reckon that's what McShane thinks he's doing but it just doesn't come off for him and the ball ends up going to Miller or the defence to launch aimlessly.

So my shopping list for January is

- An actual CB to get Durnan out of the team and hopefully steady Buchanan
- A creative midfielder to get us playing football
- A winger to stop us relying on Doyle/Dixon for width.

If we get these players in at a much higher quality than the players they'll replace then i think/hope that'll raise the level of the rest of the team and we wont need a complete rebuild again.

At least we can all take a certain amount of enjoyment from that wee ned Fraser Aird getting binned by Cove for getting caught making 'certain signs' at Parkhead yesterday. He's probably buzzing that he'll be free to spend his weekends at The Louden. Shite footballer and a total bigot. Happy days.

Aww can we sign him.....

100%. The more I've thought about it, the more I'm annoyed the board got rid of McKinnon just to bring in two ex-players thinking that would ameliorate fans anger towards them. I like McCracken and Miller as every Falkirk fan but the whole 'we're having a process' only to appoint them 2 days later, with them having done nothing to warrant being given the job, stinks to me. In a season where we need to go up, giving the job to two rookies, no matter how popular or 'sexy' they are, doesn't sit well with me. I've seen nothing so far to make me think they have the answers either.

Can we stop talking about Clyde FCs rapist. Don’t want him here, he won’t be here. Chat over.

I wouldn't be so sure about the part in bold. And the more critical chat of it there is on forums the better. It might make the club reconsider if they are thinking about morally bankrupting the club to overtake East Fife.

Upvoted this post for teaching me a new word. "Ameliorate", some boy.

Tbf it’s not a great start. 2 wins from 5 league games and the style of football really isn’t much better than under McKinnon.

I’m definitely not against them and like most fans I imagine really like both of them but I’m really concerned as every game goes that they are not learning anything. This formation does not work with the squad we’ve got, it nullifies our most creative player in Longridge and means our shite centre backs end up with note of the ball. I really want them to do well but they need to learn fast and we really need a big January with a good few players coming/going.

Can't see any truth in the Goodwillie rumour, De Vita seems much more likely but not exactly excited by the prospect. 
M&M have to take a large chunk of the blame for recent performances.  As others have said, the 5 at the back + holding midfielder formation is designed towards not losing.  In this league (and even with this squad) we should never be resorting to 3 centre halves and a holding midfielder.  M&M don't seem capable of noticing this or changing to a more attacking style - that's disappointing.  

Conte won the league with Chelsea by playing that formation. We are missing the creative player in midfield to link up play and we always end up with 2 of the three midfielders sitting deeper as they both want to pick the ball up off the defence.

Chelsea played 343 though we end up playing 532.

Let’s sign whoever we need to win this god awful league. Instead of signing journeymen we should splash what little cash we have do sign the best from RR EF and Airdrie , probably get them all for 100k boosting us and weakening them ! Failure to do so will leave us down with the part timers I fear but I l don’t have much faith / hope as our board have showed no signs of applying any strategic thinking to date it’s been disaster by committee so far. Goodwilly ie is the best striker in the league a free man and allegedly available! Believe me if the criminal case were likely to succeed the PF would have had him in court. Hatred , bigotry and abuse of all sorts are far to rife in football and never likely ever to be replaced by forgiveness , however the crew on here looking to field a team of Sunday school teachers should equally take a look at themselves.

Knowing this mob, the opposite effect is probably more likely. The more visible and vocal the opposition to any possible move for him becomes, the more determined and emboldened they'll be to see it through. Pissing off the support will be a nice little added bonus for them to round off the decade.

Come on guys, now is not the time to turn against M&M.   Maybe that time will come, but give them a chance for now.   Maybe they weren't the best choice available but that boat has sailed already for the rest of the season.  After the nightmare of the past few years with all the disruption, anger and infighting we need a period of stability.    How about we close ranks for a while?

I suspect this is the views of any sensible Falkirk fan.

I dont have any problem with M and M being appointed, the thing is they can only p*ss with the c*ck that Ray McKinnon has till January, i dont expect Durnan or any of the players to miraculously turn into Messi or Ronaldo what did you honestly expect at least we are trying to attack the problem is the players we have are limited in that capacity.  It would be nice to turn up at a game and not think "oh f**k" when Durnan has the ball or even see Doyle actually beat his man, we seen Sammon win a header on Saturday so theres a start.

Strikers are the least of our worries if you ask me. We need midfielders who can create and a decent left back. Id then move dixon to left centreback. Our strikers will scpre if we create chances for them.
