Can you reveal the source of your understanding?

Wouldn’t be appropriate but it was from a source who has a son on the board - and one I trust

Don’t want them to fail but they need to turn it round in the league, personally think they have been too pally rather than manager and worker relationship with the players and they need someone to get shouty with them as the end of the day it’s their jobs they are costing..

couldn’t give a toss about the cup

Thing is, “Falkirk are a club that really shouldn’t be in L1” is already turning into a fading cliché (especially given PT share that same mantra).
f**k up again this season, and we will become “one of the biggest clubs in L1, and a side that anyone wanting out of L1 will have to beat”.
I don’t agree that we are a club in free fall, but we definitely are a club that keeps getting the key decisions wrong.
We are repeatedly setting short term goals, and failing most of the time. “keep us in the top flight” fail, “get us back into the top flight at first time of asking” fail. We got to the play offs, but were never equipped to beat the top flight side. Then it’s “keep us in the championship”.....yes. Then next season spiralled down into the same thing “keep us in the championship....massive fail. Then “get out of L1” ....fail. Then this season, the same thing.....get us out of L1......on track for a while, but not exactly convincing......then three disastrous games that is perilously close to a de-rail. Lose the next game, and the wheels will come off completely.

Rawlins has proved himself astute in sport. FFC have proved themselves to be the complete opposite. For me, I wouldn’t want another big decision made by the current board. There’s still precious little about the board that convinces me that they will get things right. KK on the board??? Why? He’s an employee for heaven’s sake. Doing stuff like that gives me the fear in terms of future decision making.

If true do they walk of their own accord or get sacked ? Ultamatum on one game smacks of an amateur approach  ( again ) . Please ask your source to be more precise.

I don’t think a cup tie away to a side a division above is a good game to judge us on tbh.
Would make more sense if it was the home game with Montrose, so not sure I believe this....

Definitely the Montrose game. We have just been soundly beaten by East Fife. It was getting into the performance realms of the 0-3 QotS game.

The Montrose game is the one, but even a point will be enough to put off any decision on a change of management, and even then, the current board would just want someone else who wouldn’t rock the boat. Another “yes sir, no sir” manager.

I am genuinely fearful of the current mob appointing a DoF.

Not so sure I agree with, for me  it’s exactly what we need. Tough ground but a tie we should be confident of winning. One of the days away sorely missed. 
Also a measure for all to see what response to a dismal last few games. I,ll take with a pinch of salt the earlier post about defeat and M&M walking.

In the grand scheme of things they have only lost 3 league games in their time in charge but i think the thing that makes this season so different is 1 its short due to pandemic and 2 Can we afford to stay full time in the seaside leagues so its a b*****d of a call to make as why would you sack someone when your top of the league its just way too f**ked up but the same time the players need to react to it but we have the chance for changes for starters we know Dowd and Sammon doesnt work (so why the f**k do we persists waiting for Sammon to score is like waiting for lightning striking the same place twice) telfer goes missing and has showed he isnt up for a scrap and Alston return has been disappointing.

Alston scored an excellent strike against Dumbarton, that apart he’s been a real disappointment.

Well that narrows it down to one person. We need you to be more specific.

Saturday will highlight again whether we have made any progress this season.  We played a more in form Arbroath side last season and after a tight affair up there won the home leg pretty comfortably. If we fail to at least equal that it will reinforce to me  that we have not improved one bit this season.  There's also prize money at stake and who knows maybe TV money.  A good performance and a win is badly required.

The last sentence contains two wishes. You may only have one wish. Whichever wish you choose is not guaranteed to come true.

Believe it or not I'd play Todd in the middle on Saturday. As you say, Alston and Telfer have both disappointed and Todd played not too badly away to Thistle in that role. Might as well give it a try.

The best thing about the statement is Martindale admitting he's been pulling the strings for years.

"I've been trying to sign him since he left St Mirren"

Even Alan Stubbs realised he wasn't very good and that's saying a lot. That being said god knows who we'll get if Reilly's ending up in the premiership.
