Mutch definitely, miller wouldn't as you have him a few years younger already playing, gomis maybe, McManus or baird would be close. The thing from watching today's game that got me was Austin, seen him start a few games in the reserves and he looked like the next big thing but he not only never kicked on, he seemed to go backwards.

He looked shot to pieces at the end of Houston/beginning of Hartley time. Whatever went on over that time period, young Fash wanted none of it. His play on the park degenerated into an embarrassing dive fest.

Prior to that, he had a real knack for being in the right place at the right time and looked like he would develop into at the very least a very good striker for the level. Awkward, difficult to play against, could have learned an awful lot from BSLM under different circumstances because that brand of guile and shithousery was what he needed to add to his game

Listened to Fash interview on CFB, he came across quite well and confirmed what I suggested a good few month ago regarding his career move to Kelty.

He also confirmed from a players point of view that Hartley was a w**k.

I think you need talent first of all but a nasty streak and also a hunger to be successful at a decent level towards the top of the game, without it and you will do an Austin.

The thing we had in the Houston squad was a good togetherness, everyone knowing their job,under McKinnon we were a team of individuals.

What did you suggest a few months ago mate ? That Fash was a talented player but a greedy b*****d that wanted to make as much money as possible for as little effort possible ?

We got 1K for a 50/50 half time draw for a non existent game.

Hate to say it - (no I really don't) -f**k the rest and the SFA  but we need to use this  current situation to improve us - leverage our support .

I'm up for buying a team above us and shutting them down.

I thought that bit between the stadium and the new Astro park was an extension of the car park, looks like wasteland! Miss the place.

It’s home of our club but when I see it like that the first word I think of is - lopsided. Oh to have a complete stadium, even a basic but safe terracing.

Something like this opposite the main stand would be ideal.

That really is one of the most evocative images you can show me of times gone by. Taken from where I used to stand when I went with my dad, looking down towards where I stood once I started going with my pals. 

I hope that picture never ceases to make me feel warm and fuzzy

Leaving enough room for a 4th stand if ever that became viable.

Who were the geniuses who installed that pitch? Slopes to one side and floods in the rain.

Yes. I walk past it to every game and the slope from Left to Right (in the picture) is pronounced. When it rains there's a huge puddle covers the right hand side of the pitch for almost it's entire length, but biggest at the far right hand corner.

I’d be happy with the gazebo back with the flags. Those were the day!

Fortunately we live in a dry, warm climate.

Just that he wanted to be back close to home(happens to a lot of players at ICT & Ross County which is why they offer houses to live in as sweetners) he wasn't getting a game at ICT and wanted easier life.

He said East Fife were in for him and he was torn between them and Kelty, can only guess cash and/or bonus was greater at Kelty.

He is back doing what he was doing in his amateur days as a day job, so perhaps now topping his ICT wage.

Although his time at Falkirk wasn't really successful for him, he does speak quite fondly about the club and I guessed his most influential captain would be McCracken.

I reckon he would've scored a barrow load in league 1 but it's the niggly injuries he seems to carry higher up the ladder. I really thought he would come back to haunt us but he seems to settled into part time football now.
