The thing is in Mutch's defence he is the last line of defence and a keeper is only as good as what is in front of him and the issue with that he has had Durnan, Hall and Mercer all have been criticised on here for their defensive capabilities or lack of, especially Durnan.  I would say the most pressing thing on the lads mind is which one of the above 3 names is going to arse it up and is he going to need to bail out.  Basically its not a case of when they arse it up, its who and to what extent that being on the lads mind as well as trying to do his job and read the game.  The forfar sending off was a soft one but the ruling is raising a hand to another player which he did even if it was a gentle tap on the back of the napper.

Remember Danny Rogers being slaughtered by Dumbarton supporters on here when he was on loan at them and I am sure Arbroath supporters said Mutch will never be a decent keeper and look how they both panned out.

Rodgers was loved by Dumbarton fans as far as I can remember, I'm sure he was their player of the year.

It was Mutch who was slaughtered by Dumbarton as well as Arbroath fans because he was on loan there too.

I'm not sure you're remembering that correctly. Rogers was loved by pretty much every Sons fan.

Certainly that's how I remember it.

We always seem to end up with utter dross when we pick up loanees from the old firm.  Rudden apart I can't think of any others that have been any use. Other clubs seem to have had far better results. Dunfermline and Raith have had some decent players from them.

I imagine that Rudden has been during the ‘Wilson’ era at The Rangers....that some what quashes the f**k all assertion earlier?

Rudden was before Ross joined Sevco.

No he was well before Wilson appeared. Would be interesting to know if Falkirk have ever approached him. Must be Falkirk fans around who still keep in touch with him that could find out surely.

Keena in the commentary box for FTV on Saturday so it doesn’t sound like he’s anywhere near getting back on the park

Do anything to keep himself in the news, already had similar stories with Kris Doolan and Anthony Stokes.

It would be good to know what exactly is the injury and the extent of it, is it a recurrence of the one he had? Id actually worry if Morrison picks up an injury because him apart he's the only one forward that's scoring somewhat regularly. Dowds you feel needs a few chances to get on the scoresheet and Francis looked like more of a creator before he lost his place to Sammon who just isn't a finisher.

I heard there was a chance he would be fit for the Clyde game

Some people on here must not actually watch us play, Mutch was at worst slightly shaky in that Forfar game. If you look at what Mutch does he's excellent, holds on to the ball rarely parry's or punches, his distribution is outstanding, probably the best I've seen from a falkirk keeper which in the modern game is vital. He makes big saves and almost always provides a safe pair of hands, not to mention the fact he is our player and possibly only asset left in the whole club. Yes what he done was stupid beyond belief but it's time we get him back in (once recovered).

Apologies must have been mistaken with the Danny Rogers one but definitely remember Mutch being slaughtered and comments along the lines of will never be a decent keeper, though after his first outing against Livi at Almondvale when Hartley took over I dare say a few of us were questioning him as well.

Back for 2021 then. Is it a reoccurrence of his knee injury or something new?

There is no one better in the minds of Falkirk fans than our second choice keeper.

If we could get better in January, I'd let him go, sadly with the current situation I doubt  teams will be making many signings.
