The Falkirk FC Thread

Recommended Posts

I was on a bit of a stag do with Andy Rodgers as we have a couple of mutual friends. It was on the day Scotland beat France 1-0 at Hampden.
That's my trivia for the day
In Scotland v France at Hampden tales, I spent all week chasing a ticket in the run up for that, then gave up hope on the Friday night and arranged a day out starting off with cans and the football at a mates house.

Shortly after I arrived at my mates house the call came.... Theres a ticket if you can get to the bus before it leaves.

Na, says I. Iv already got a carry out here and we'll probably get fucked anyway.

Still raging at myself yet.

Andy is a good lad.  

Aye. I only spoke to him briefly as he'd just popped in to the pub for a wee while.

What a day that was by the way. Pub, Scotland beating France, night out in Glasgow, chicken dippers. Lovely stuff.

I like the concept of that but doesn’t leave many options. I don’t want a novice. Just because someone is on the merry-go-round doesn’t mean they’re on the way down.

We're pretty far down to be looking at a manager on the way up. Would put us in the position of taking a risk on someone like Derek Ure or Ricky Waddell.

Derek Ure??? This must be a wind up

He just signed for Kelty as a player. I'd probably rather have him than Sammon/Dowds/Francis in all seriousness. He's third top scorer in the LL or something.

(Not advocating we sign Andy Rodgers btw but he might legitimately be better than the three musketeers mentioned above)

Funny had the same thought after seeing that Rodgers was released, thought I was going slightly mad....

Oh, Caldwell, there's an idea! Hadn't thought about him.

I don't want a novice either that's not what I said. We've got novices just now. Someone who has cut their teeth at a part time club been reasonably successful and is now looking to take a step up is what I'd like to see.  Of course the fact is that any experienced manager will need to be on the way down to join us as we are in league one FFS. The likes of McIntyre for instance was at Dundee last. Only reason he would contemplate joining us is if he can't get a gig higher up the leagues. If he can't do that then he's on his way down obviously. Same with all the others mentioned.

I always remember my mate saying to me,  you know you are getting old when someone you were at school with laddie gets a game with Falkirk when Andy Rodgers made his debut.

Had one the best days that day as well, amateur team I played for were playing in the Scottish against some Fife mob, 5-1 down at half time, we came back and won 7-5, all back to the pub to celebrate and watch the Scotland game, scenes when caldwell scored and we won, thought f**k it and majority went home and got ready and we headed to destiny in Glasgow and got utterly MWI but the full place was buzzin from the game, Sauchie Hall Street was bouncing into the wee hours. Good Times.

Well I suggested Graham Alexander pages and pages ago but typical Falkirk dithering means he's had to take the Motherwell job instead.

If they cancel it, they'll void the season. Won't matter what position we're in. They won't promote a team after 11 games.
