The Falkirk FC Thread

Recommended Posts

Hall said he is a defender foremost but was taught at Brighton to get forward when he has the chance according to his article, am pretty sure Dallison said the same when we signed him and the least said about that the better.

Partick fans said he is prone to the odd mistake still young and cant make as many mistakes as Durnan.

I actually saw Dallison have a good game for us. Unfortunately it was a reserve game against Ross County. Froxylias also played a blinder that day, the ball looked to be glued to his boot.
I am certain that this happened though there is a chance my pre match Bovril was spiked.

The best bit of talking Simon ever did was to tell John Hughes to pass the ball to the nearest player after he had won it and if that wasn’t on just hump it in my direction and leave the rest to me. These words of wisdom got yogi a gig at park head and the club netted 300k for a player who was arguably past his peak .


I wonder what Simon makes of our demise ? I’m guessing he would advocate that football is indeed a simple game and to succeed we should keep it so. We don’t need journeymen on the pitch or accountants , lawyers and consultants off it ! We need hard graft like yogi gave us and a mentality that never knows when we are beaten. I hope Gary Deans can tell our MSG to keep it simple and pray to hell his day job is not a lawyer , accountant or consultant.
 

Read a good book at Xmas The Three Kings - Busby Shankly Stein and the way they wanted the game played. These principles are just a relevant now as they were in the 50-60's.

Nothing smart about it, football is a simple game made complicated by the players ( Bill Shankly )

Basic skills - Control a ball and Pass a ball if you have that then everything else can be taught. Awareness, Fitness, Team spirit and the way you play the game.

Liverpool and Man City are examples of that doctrine in practice.

Yogi got the parkhead gig 3yrs after Stainrod had left and probably played as many games in midfield in that period .

The lofted hoof never ever left him either

He looked every bit a baller and i think that was where it stopped, anytime i seen him play never actually seen him put in a tackle and to be honest cant say i seen him actually win a ball.

Any hoof ball in his direction would see him watch it bounce, then bounce again, and possibly a third or even fourth time before attempting to control it (by which time most attacking players were all over him like a rash).

Defo reckon that beach volleyball was his true vocation.

Kind of like Barnes Wallace in the Dambusters movie when they were firing the ping pong balls up and down the testing tank...lol

Who is the biggest knob to ever walk through the doors at Falkirk FC? As in who has caused us the most damage as a club.

My top 5 in order:

  1. Craig Campbell
  2. Hamish Deans
  3. George Craig
  4. George Fulston
  5. Lex Miller / Andy Thomson

George Fulston/lambie combination would be my number one as they nearly killed the club.

I still remember Hughes as a striker when he signed. 

He was comedy bad.

Think his final game up front saw him subbed after sending a volley out of the stadium from 6 yards at Clydebank.

Decent defender at this level when fit. Not a massive loss as he sadly seems made of glass.

Surprised we've not signed anyone else though.

Waiting on Tids going so we can afford 8 Championship players IMO

Poor Toshney can't even stand up for the signing photo. Decent enough defender but too injury prone. For a 27 year old he really hasn't played a lot of games in his career

One of a few that gave his lot when asked, could be a great signing if they can keep him fit, and a two and a half year deal ( if true) gives a bit of security for a player never off the treatment table, goes with our best wishes

I don't have the statistics to back it up (I don't care lol) but our defence certainly looked at its most solid when Toshney and Buchanan were together and Durnan was nowhere to be seen.

We’re apparently announcing a signing or two next week so he might be one of them.

That is if we’re in for him.
