Not sure why you lot et DPB wind yourselves up so much.  Better just ignoring if you ask me. I know covid has had a big effect on fitbaw but there must be other topics surely.

He’s got a captive audience on here so will continue to post.

Fair enough.

Will your dad be watching Kilmarnock this year?

Not sure anyone will be watching anything this year to be honest the way we're going.😁

Is DPB the latest version of Edibairn i wonder?

Ask him if he'd be happy to infect Kevin O'Hara with a virus and you may get your answer.

No it's Dixie Chicken from OneF.

I think he denied this previously but surely there cannot be two of these walking amongst us.

Great effort and support for the 50/50 draw, £10,000 paid out to winners and £10,000 to club. Special thanks to Sam McGivern & Will Vaulks. Great achievement and testimony to the best supporters.

There's absolutely no way I'd ever give Bairns for Life a penny if that's the kind of intelligence involved with it. 

Worse than that, he was/is doing the accounts.

Dawson PB  - I think I said once before that your views are very much contrary to the majority of Falkirk supporters who post on here. Actually, when it comes to Covid-19 they seem to be contrary to pretty much everyone else on this forum.

That's fair enough. You're entitled to your opinion, just as other people are entitled to attack it.

However, BPM likes to let cats out of the bag and your identity wasn't much of a secret even before his post earlier today. It wouldn't take too many google searches on B4L to make an educated guess as to who you are. 

In which case your opinions posted here run the risk of alienating  some of the people that B4L are trying to attract. The post I've quoted from NBB is a perfect example of that.

It may be time to consider stepping away from the keyboard. .

Fair points, BB.

Yes, it seems that unless you are part of the groupthink, there is no place for contrarian views.

Sad but true.

Thanks

BAIRNforLife? More like CUNTforLife.

Why don’t you do us all a favour and take your venomous, sometimes verging on the libelous, vitriol elsewhere?

F*ck off and good riddance.

It was mentioned a long time back that he was Dixie Chicken from onef.

Who cares anyway?

He is entitled to his views, most tend not to agree with them as they are pretty extreme. He will have been a Falkirk fan longer than most on here and for that fair play to him.

Not really sure why that would harm BFL. They have done a decent job raising money and it is good now that share transactions are involved.

It is time fans pull together. BtB is still the best vehicle for that IMO.

Great work by the club during this time and the fans have responded.  
A big cash injection from Bairn for Life will also help when needed! 


The fans will always back FFC in terms of cash. I would wager that when push comes to shove over the next few months when clubs are going to teeter on the brink Falkirk will be probably amongst the safest in the country because of the cash we are always prepared to pump in.

Think it’s a fair bet, we are going to be asked to help the club like never before, with the new season  unlikely to kick off until the new year.

With the forum talking about the finances of the club here are some numbers.

22 x players at an average of 650 pounds per week. 

2 x managers on lets say 1,000 pounds per week.

To be conservative lets round that down to 11,000 per week in wages. 20% of that the club are paying = 2,200 pounds per week.

Stadium rent, services, insurance etc for the sake of keeping the numbers simple 2,800 pounds per week.

Hopefully everybody agrees that estimate is on the lower side of what our outgoings are.

That is 5k per week to keep the club going and that's with government support.

FFC have spent 60k since the close down. Now the club have said they are financially strong but have been careful not to say how much. Whatever it was it lower by 60k and unsustainable.

To  eek out what funds we have left that 5k per week has got to be reduced. When you consider that government support for employees is going to decrease and disappear. That action has to be sooner than later.

The players out of contract will be away. Sad but FFC have no choice.

The players we have in contract will either have to agree to reduced wages, payment to terminate contract, or there is a get out due to no promotion and they go as well.

Miller and McCracken is going to be a hard call. reduced wages or let them go at the end of their contract.

Like any tenant FFC has to talk to the landlord just like the rest of business and negotiate a substantial reduction in rent/lease.

With no income and no idea when circumstances  will change. I cannot see the fans putting money into the club in the volume required when rightly family priorities come first.

FFC have to address the above outgoings and do it now. Will be surprised of we don't find out this week.
