O'hara had an ok season under no pressure. 10 goals in 27 league games is nothing outstanding. I certainly wouldn't be pinning my hopes on him scoring the goals required to get us promoted.  Will be interesting to see how he does at Dunfermline having been honking for us every time he got his chance.

10 goals on the Championship isn't bad, as we seen from McManus it's a big jump League 1 up to Championship. He would have done well for us next season in my opinion.

Big gamble to pay cash for him and take him on a 3 year deal based on one half decent season at Alloa.  Different if a one year free transfer gamble.

Far too much negativity. I much preferred Shodwall Cat as a poster. Can we not get him back? 😄

Just a bit worrying that given all the clubs these two have played for our targets if true all seem to be guys that have basically played for falkirk previously and foster.

Fine by me. Can we have Vaulks, Alston, Sibbald and Taylor back for starters please.

Ok guys that weren't good enough for us previously then mcmanus excepted.
Whilst I agree that there is a lack of imagination in the names mentioned, and IF that is indicative of an overall lack of imagination/contacts or whatever then it is a problem, you cant really be thinking like that. If someone "wasnt good enough for us" when we were a Championship play off side, it really doesnt stand to reason that they arent good enough for us now.

We arent going to attract, or afford players of that calibre now and we are at a serious crossroads. Second season in this toilet of a league and not the favourites to win it. If we dont get up we are firmly rooted, and we seen how firmly rooted we got ourselves in the chamionship. Looking back all romantic over players that couldnt get into Houstons side wont help.

Mibbes aye, mibbes naw. I did hear rumours about O Hara and Foster but I also heard of one other guy who knocked us back that has no connection to the club. BPM might put his name up. 

The four guys who arrived in January had no FFC history, albeit Da Vita was with LM at Livvy. And Dowds, who's been heavily rumoured, has no connection to the club.

I think you might be seeing a pattern that isn't there. We'll know for sure in a couple of months.

I wasn't aware they paid a fee for him and you do have a point about the 3 year contract!

Dowds is the only other name I have heard. TBF they are trying to work away and get players in. I have some sympathy for M&M - it won’t be an easy gig. All the best players, as already been shown, want to play at as high a level as they can, the Championship. I would hope we look to the Premiership clubs and get 3/4 of a decent standard who have plenty of legs about them and some burning ambition.

This year is very important for our club.

Its going to be very difficult to get out of this league and, to do so, we need a couple of energetic attacking midfielders and another forward, assuming that Dowds is coming.

Apart from a RB I’m not too worried about the defence as Dixon is quite versatile and so too is Miller.

To do well we need some quality players and for that to happen we need cash.

I don’t know the state of the finances but I’d be up for some kind of crowdfunder purely for the playing budget.

ive already bought ST’s and paid the full whack but I know quite a lot  of folks who would happily pay some extra to get some quality in.
