The Falkirk FC Thread

Recommended Posts

Still think we’ll get promoted as at least one club in the premier or championship will go to the wall.

Face facts. Nobody will give a flying feck what Falkirk or any other lower league club thinks. Statements like these are for the fans benefit and pointless quite frankly.

Hes probably sold a few season tickets to folk calling it "great leadership" while he is accomplishing nothing.

"take our place in the top division" - I've never understood this stance. 5 years in the top flight in it's currrent format doesn't merit a permenant position. We're in league one FFS.

Seven paragraphs of talking off the pitch, including a reference to taking further steps, then ending by referring to letting performances on the pitch do the talking is a laugh.

Nowhere near as big a laugh as a third tier club talking about taking "our place in the top division" right enough.

Yaaaawwwn!
Aye so says you, yet during the season Falkirk failed in 3 attempts (4 if you count the chocolate biscuit cup) to get the better of Rovers, what reason have you for thinking You’d have managed it last Saturday?

YAWN..........

His comment about 6 clubs supported by the spfl is interesting though considering they were the ones who instigated the whole reconstruction talks to start with.  Laughable if true.

We have been shafted fucking massively here. Leaves a very bitter taste in the mouth. 

Your salty tears about it are deeply savoury though.

Falkirk FC respond to news of the failure of league reconstruction talks

Falkirk FC Chairman Gary Deans said:

“Today’s announcement will not come as a huge surprise to Falkirk supporters who have, along with the rest of Scottish football, witnessed firsthand the utter shambles engulfing our game these last few weeks.

As you know I have been working with the SPFL Reconstruction Group over recent weeks and I received a call late this afternoon (8 May) informing me that six Premier League clubs had indicated they would not support any league reconstruction at the present time.

As a club we embarked upon this process with eyes wide open and tempered optimism, hoping that the SPFL and other clubs might see the bigger picture and act in the best interests of Scottish football. In fairness, some did see that bigger picture and approached talks in a constructive manner – but once again progress has been hampered by the short sightedness and self-preservation of a small cabal within Scotland’s top division.

You will share my anger at this latest injustice, the failed promises and the general mismanagement that has occurred at the top of Scottish football for many years

The handling of this entire situation has been farcical ranging from the decisions made by the SPFL board to those clubs who have, what could only be charitably described as, misled and deceived.  The principle of ‘do no harm’ to Scottish football during the pandemic was thrown out of the window a long time ago and the decision taken today will cause harm to many clubs – Falkirk included.

To add insult to injury to release a statement on a Friday evening adding to the stress of players, staff and the many people connected with football clubs is a sign of the blatant contempt that those in charge of our game hold for us all.

I have already embarked upon discussions with other clubs who share my anger and we will be considering the next steps to take over the weekend.  I will keep you informed as matters progress but for now the club has made it clear that we cannot support this unfair decision taken by six clubs and supported by those at the SPFL.  Change is required.

As a club we must do what we’ve always done, let our performances on the pitch do the talking, and with your support press on through the leagues and take our place in the top division where we can continue to lobby for the necessary change required in Scottish football.”

 

Minter, the last paragraph is hilarious.  The laddie obviously wants to replace Queen Budgie at tynecastle with jingoistic nonsense like that.

“Let our performances on the pitch do the talking” is a right fucking laugh considering those performances have landed Falkirk in the third tier.

St Mirren.
A club that should be fighting for an expanded SPFL and the rights of the middle to smaller clubs.
But really just a bunch of self interested shitebags like the rest of them in the upper tier......



Lovely jubbly seethe.

How many teams you want in the SPFL? 42 not enough?

Absolutely delighted. How’s life in the third tier?

St Mirren have never played at that level so genuinely interested. Must be really shite?
