Mad to think if you’d even taken one point off us this season you’d be sitting sipping champagne just now. Better get that ice topped up.

Mad to think that you thought hitting the send button was the best way to end that post

Ach well, I've had some great fun watching Scottish fitba but if we get shafted again and don't get league reconstruction then It's Goodnight From Me. . . . .

Maybe you should have come to San Starko for a win rather than the draw. The team and fans celebrated like you’d won the league that night. That said I’d be happy to see you come up with us with the reconstruction that must be inevitable after the stance of Dundee . See you at Brockville next season.

That’s a very reasonable statement from Falkirk, all things considered, fair play.

It is all ifs buts and maybes, but I struggle to feel sympathy for ourselves after we’ve played airdrie, Clyde and Raith 9 or 10 times and won zero games. We’ve been shafted a bit by Doncaster but I would feel a bit grubby if the shower of imposters that make up 8 or 9 of our 11 went up (do feel sorry for Dec though, what a boy). If Raith compete in the champ with that same squad they’re going straight back doon anyway but aye, little sympathy for us here.

This is it for me as well. Gave up my season ticket this season in protest at the way the club was being run but Doncaster and his clownshow make Lex and co look competent. To be honest I haven't missed the football this season and I have found other things to do on a Saturday afternoon, this shitfest is the final nail for me.

When has a promoted team ever went up and not signed a single player?

Even a spine of that squad, as would ours. Who knows what things will look like mind you in months/next year, it’s an unprecedented time for player contracts

Seems to be our club that gets done over by these decisions. Not being promoted due to our stadium, not allowed to ground share etc etc. 
Every club has the right to vote how they wish, that’s democracy and I can accept that however the way this has filtered out with Dundee and their “mystery vote” for them to have us all by the balls, the whole thing should have been thrown out. 
I expected a better statement from us to be honest. Should have had a little bit of backbone IMO.

Again and again we are hearing no fans in stadiums until 2021 with the LA Mayor the latest to announce no sporting events until then.

There should be no gloating at this stage as the structure of Scottish football will look very different come next year. If you are a supporter of any club outside Celtic you should be very concerned.

Clubs screaming for cash right now will likely not exist come the winter.

I don’t agree tbh. Our problem this season has been injuries, we’ve regularly not been able to fill the bench and missed our best players. Our 3 best players (S. Anderson, Hendry, Vaughan) played one game together which happened to be our best performance of the season. Anderson was rumoured to be signing full time next season and Vaughan will be fit when we resume. Dan Armstrong is another of our better players who was only fully fit from February.

If we get some luck with injuries our team will already look different to this season, add in 4/5 signings and we’ll definitely be competitive, that’s not to say we would definitely stay up. Agree it will be interesting to see what happens regarding contracts, teams may hold off till we know when the season will actually start but the furlough scheme should help with this assuming it is extended.

It certainly isn't the way I wanted to win the league or any raith fan for that matter but we will take it.Hopefully the discussions regarding league reconstruction are sorted quickly so there is no relegation and 2 teams go up from each league.So that would make 14 in the premiership with Dundee utd and Inverness going up and 10 in the championship with us and Falkirk going up with Stranraer avoiding relegation.Cove and Edinburgh City coming up with Brechin avoiding relegation and Kelty and Brora promoted.Regarding the spfl it is a shambles and run by idiots who couldn't organise a piss up in the proverbial so heads must roll for the way things have been organised over the last few days alone.I can understand why Falkirk fans and their club are upset but if you were in our position what would you do ?.Regarding our chairman some of the things he has been saying were probably correct as he was looking out for us but he surely could have went around it differently and worded things differently.Anyway stay safe everyone and see you in the championship [I hope]

Maybe we should have came to Starks with a totally different plan on the off chance that a totally unprecedented global crisis would lead to the premature end of the season followed by an SPFL clusterfuck leaving us where we are?

 

 

ETA I hope South Stand "GIT THE SUBS OAN" guy changes it to add "IN CASE THURS A NUCLEAR WAR!!!!!"

A lot of conjecture from non Falkirk supporters on our season and next season. Not sure any Falkirk fan is actually interested or listening to anyone after the shambolic decisions of primarily Dundee then the SPFL. 
We are where we are but can I point out to every fan especially all those who have seen their teams either promoted or relegated maybe keep the champagne on ice.

Should Partick Thistle confirm their intentions to launch and register legal actions against the SPFL any monies ( yes the monies that the SPFL were crucial and paramount to many clubs existences) would be effectively frozen for weeks if not months during any on going court proceedings.

Sobering thoughts for all clubs, especially on the grounds that this vote was always about ensuring our fellows clubs existences would be saved.

Anyone who has taken the time to read the statements from Partick, you would be a fool not to believe that they will proceed with going legal.

Im assuming that the blazers in the sixth floor have considered the outcome of any such actions ? If Partick do register any such legal response to the SPFL will there be yet another deal done ? 

Crucial 48 hours ?

Plus we played arbroath in the cup this year and beat them quite comfortably and their on the verge of the playoffs. Big thing for you will be finding a regilar goalscorer at that level I would think. Likes of baird wont be up to it.

I'd love to actually know which clubs if any are going to go bust if this cash isn't handed out today.  Spfl still using that threat.
