And an aging, immobile striker with a dubious injury record who's a mate of the manager coming in. Struggle to see the logic of anything going on at the moment. Bizarre.

Exactly how I feel.

Couldn’t have put it better myself tbh.

Tidser told he can leave on loan. Wrong move IMO but I’d imagine it’s to free up wages.


Will anybody want him?

Teams will want him, however, it'll depend on the contribution we'll want to his wages

Quite disappointed at this but no real surprise. Feel hes not been given a fair chance and hes one of a few players who gets the ball down and tries to play a forward pass.

I wonder what the issue is with Tidser. McKinnon bombed him out the team without any real justification and now M&M are letting him go without giving him a chance to prove himself. 

Regarding Da Vita, I've seen him described as a midfielder but also a forward. I wonder if he's being signed to play as an attacking midfielder since that's what we seem to be lacking. It certainly doesn't make any sense to sign another striker.

Agree, get the feeling it’s not a football decision, probably due to our financials at present and most likely further add on costs we simply can’t afford.

Tbf he was a good player before the ACL injury. I know that can ruin players though.

I overheard a guy at the raith game saying Tidser had smacked McKinnon. Whether there is a fallout from that being carried over who knows, if it's even true. :)

What a fucking shite time to be a falkirk fan. 

Yep. 

However,  as we go through life we can change our house, we can change our job, our car, our girlfriend / boyfriend, our wife / husband but one thing we never change is the team that we are born to support. Now that vow really is "for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part".

Onwards and upwards.

COYB.

After the avalanche of new players the past three or four transfer windows, this one is going to be ultra boring, having no money.  Mind you, considering the dross we brought in maybe it's not such a bad thing.

Which would have been gross misconduct and instant dismissal with no financial penalties for the club. 

 

Somebody's talking shite.

If true ( suspect not) he should have been subject to a full gross misconduct hearing.  This would be immediate suspension followed by a simple “ you’ve broke the rules “ and sacked.

If true that’s he allegedly had the manager by the throat, shame on anyone including the players that this wasn’t reported, or a b bigger shame that if it was it was swept under the carpet.

Well let’s all look forward to the new year, said at the time ( M&M appointment) that the main objective was to take the pressure off the BOD MSG, for failing to fire RM on bringing us down into the mire. Absurdly & shockingly ( not being fired) he (RM) was given a budget the chancellor of the exchequer would have been doing cartwheels with. Any decent manager should have identified the best young players from around the leagues and maybe with likes of Gomis Longridge and Mitch built a team worthy of pulling on the navy blue.
What we got ( on paper ) was 12/13 players that were from mediocre teams, a large percentage squad players. Every supporter could see that after 4/5 games we had an imbalanced first eleven. Young fit hard working teams soon had us worked out, bloody hell it wasn’t that difficult. Wind the clock on, M&M brought in, sorry but apart from two twenty minute spells over the past five games were back to a negative McKinnonesque style of football.
Unless both have been promised funds for making changes, I’m terrified that we will be at best in the play offs, and with no wins out of seven games played against the top three stats don’t lie. We won’t go up.
Hate saying this but unless M&M can change the attitudes and desires of the current squad, and with change of personnel we’re quickly heading into the abyss.
Another season down here would ultimately lead to admin, or part time football. Can’t even think that our MSG would want this scenario.......

Where are you getting this potential “admin” from? Who isn’t being paid?
