The Falkirk FC Thread

Recommended Posts

From the man himself putting the Tidser debate to bed. He was told by M&M he would get his chance but would have to wait (see Connolly for the exact same chat) He immediately asked to leave. Seems to be his MO, but if he wants to play then fair enough. Laters.

He also says he's very fit but has had his fitness questioned throughout his career.

The last 20 mins of so are about falkirk. Actually quite enjoyed listening to the whole thing, albeit over a couple of days.

I enjoyed the interview too, thought it was a good listen. Tidser comes across as a very decent, honest lad.

M&M told him he’d get his chance. Anyone who honestly believes he was given that chance is kidding themselves on. He was brought in away to Montrose and did very well in a 2-3 win yet was back out the team again the following week. He never kicked a ball for us again.

I’m with Tidser on this. FAR too good a player to be sitting on his arse warming our bench in League 1 whilst dross like Robbie Leitch, McShane, Telfer and De Vita got game time ahead of him. No wonder he fu*ked off!

I don’t think it does put the debate to bed.
It may explain why he left but does nothing to clarify the mysterious lack of playing time during his period with us.

I agree with you that he's better than all of them. If he were still here I'm sure he'd be playing more than any of those four, though in the case of Leitch and McShane that wouldn't be hard. I suppose it's even possible that if he'd said he wanted to stay and fight for his place we might not have signed De Vita.   

Where I disagree with you (and others, evidently) is whether his performances were good enough to deserve more games than he got. I wasn't a fan and wouldn't have put him in ahead of Gomis, Miller, Connolly or Longridge. You and others probably would have. Fair enough. All about opinions and there's no right or wrong answer.

But as soon as a player says he wants to leave I'd jettison them as soon as possible. If they're not committed to the club then get them out of it.

He never got his chance. What a complete waste.

Agree can’t help thinking something still to come out on this sorry episode. As commented far better player than at least four maybe five of current squad.

He was told he would get his chance, but he'd have to wait for it. He said no, I want out. In that same meeting. The exact same conversation as Aidan Connolly has described. One wasn't up for that and bailed. The other kept his head down, took his chance when it came and is now one of the first names on the team sheet. Tidser left because of Tidser.

People referencing the montrose match so I had a look back at the match thread. People were asking how he was playing and this was my view on it during the match:

"Plays nice stuff when he has time. Gets robbed or left for dead the rest of the time. He doesn't look disinterested at least.

I'd have kept McShane on rather than him."

While the montrose performance was an improvement on his previous games I still had the same issues with him as I had previously. He got an assist in that match, but 90% of that was down to McManus.

So if he asked to leave does that mean that we didn't have to pay him anything to go?
No. A severance deal was arrived at he said. Presumably he had quite a weak hand in negotiations.

If Tidser was the Messiah, why is he playing in the pub league ?

All of our players gone in January have went down the league's for a reason

We have 8 games to go and still don't have regular settled starting 11 probably tells it's own story. However we may just have finally got our best strike partnership together in McManus and LM, compliment each other quite well. If we could only get the balance correct in central midfield things would looks lot better, we don't have the personnel to get that though.

Guy was a complete wage thief. Alarms should have been ringing when there was all that humming and hawing about the pre contract etc. When he played he was far too immobile and slow and got shown up by the youngsters playing for the likes of clyde and airdrie.  Had to be dragged to play for us and then couldnt get out quick enough.

He’s away playing for Kelty Hearts now ffs, if he was that good he’d have fucked off to a club at a similar or higher level to us. He clearly thinks he’s better than he is.

Might be a much better player than De vita but f**k knows how he’s like to train and play with every week.

I saw him play for kelty on friday night against bsc Glasgow and first thing I thought of him was he doesn't look fit

All those years in Greenock knocked the pride, determination and ambition out of him. Understandable really.

Oh, right. I was assuming you meant midfielders.
