The Falkirk FC Thread

Recommended Posts

This year’s money is gone. Therefore I’ll not be wanting a refund as what has happened is not down to the club other than there abysmal record over the last few years.
For next season, I’ll be one of the first to purchase as keeping FFC going is a bit of a mission for me.
Its not a purchase in exchange for services but a donation for the preservation of something which means a lot to me and my family.
Probably silly but that’s the way it is. Hampden1957, Vaduz, lots of great memories.

The odds are I’ll end up doing the same, for similar reasons.
However as for regularly attending games, that’s probably more where my concern lies. Feel it may be a while before I’m there every week....

One thing this situation has brought out is the joy of watching from home during winter time.

Im finding it harder to withstand the freezing cold so the option of FTV is a real blessing.

Maybe this will become a real possibility in the future?

I hope not as it won’t encourage us to attend.
But the option to watch the game on Falkirk TV has always been there anyway if you have VPN software....

The misery of watching from home surely.

There's yer man Yogi beating the Scottish champions there with Ross County tonight, just over a year after literally offering himself for the Falkirk job in League One. Concurrently, we're stuck on our arse staring at a third year in a row in the third tier with Tweedledum and Tweedledee in charge ("BuT ThEy HaVe FaLkIrK BloOd" and the maws love them etc etc) debating the intricacies of whether we really deserved 150k or 500k from the Scottish Government and waiting to be told if and when we can play again. 

I know there's a much larger story and the happy clappers on here are keen to remind us all that we can't change the past, but the scale to which our club has been mismanaged and where we sit at the moment is an absolute obscenity.

There are also folk who will still argue they'd have Pressley over Yogi 😂

I honestly couldn’t give a f**k about the circumstances around how he left us, I fucking love Yogi and would give my right nut to have him as our manager.

Do tell us who the happy clappers are on this site? I couldn’t tell you one.
I would also love to see Yogi back.
However the first choice of many on here, isn’t Yogi, but the experience of Tommy Wright which doesn’t seem to have given Killie a lift and they could well find themselves in the Championship next season now....

You're acting as if he's pulled off a managerial masterclass. They had something like 2 touches inside Celtic's box until they scored their goal which was a header from a free kick, none other than Jordan Shite as well. Also rode their luck with Celtic missing some sitters. The only thing that might actually save Yogi this season is his old buddy Rice being just as inept albeit with a much lower budget.

He's been in charge for all of two weeks and played two games which were against 1st and 4th in the table. I think he'll need a bit more time than that.

Of course, although you’ve missed the home debut defeat to Motherwell too, but there’s people wanting us to rush a managerial change just now when we are top and may have no more than 7 games left to complete the campaign.
So you see where I’m coming from?
I only think it’s time for panic measures if we drop off the top....

I've always said we should stick with the current managers until the end of the season (whenever that is?).

The real issue for me is if we go up in my mind they are not the guys to take us onwards & upwards. I base this on the truly uninspiring tactics, style of play and recruitment under M&M. 

The tough call for the BOD is to punt them if/when they have just won promotion - and our BOD's track record is not to make such tough calls. Having said that it's hard to justify and not many would - but the downside is probably 2 years or so of mediocracy in the Championship. Maybe we'd take that right now!

I’m certainly not against reviewing the situation when the campaign is over. However structurally we will be different with a DoF hopefully having replaced some of the dross with far better players and maybe we will get to see something a bit more exciting against generally better opposition.
However I still think we need to be cautious about stumbling from change to change. That’s got us nowhere the last few years and we do need some stability if we are to start climbing as a club. Whether that’s under M and M depends on what they do if this campaign completes, and how they work with Holt....

I wouldn’t be writing off the alternative to a few mediocre championship years, and that would be relegation back to L1. Of what we have seen this season, it would be a very real possibility......God, I can almost hear Martin Ritchie telling everyone that “staying in the Championship is the main aim, and it won’t be easy, but M&M will be giving it their best, and we can’t ask for more than that. You know, these are all established Championship clubs we are up against, so we have to be realistic”.

Can’t disagree with some of the posts about Yogi, maybe should have been given a second chance to manage us. However let’s not forget him prostituting himself for the “bigger club” and when asked about returning publicly stated not for him, which for me could have been handled better. 
Should Yogi be considered if the circumstances come about? it’s a yes from me, but let’s see what M&M can deliver. 
( on a side note beating one half of the weegies isn’t a huge surprise, most clubs have this season)

Hughes has taken over a club that throws money at the team.  That's his ideal situation. Its how he won the championship with us . He tried it again in his last season with us failed miserably and then bolted. He wanted to do it at Inverness but they wouldn't let him so he bolted again. If he doesn't keep county up then there's something far wrong given their budget. A win against Celtic means nothing these days . If it had been rangers then would've been a decent result but they shipped five to them not so let me ago.

Would love to see what the Rawlins thought of Hughes's step up to the plate, we need coaches on the park, run through brick walls ideology.😂😂

There's yer man Jordan Shite finally finding himself a barrel of fannies he could score in. 

As for the Staggies beating Celtic? Not as if they haven't done that already this season.

Brilliant question actually! I wonder if SA is still paying himself 80k a year in rent for a stand we don’t and can’t use. Wish I had asked this at the AGM now, by rights that’s one saving the club should be making. Is anybody in a position to shed any light on this? 

I'm always surprised there are folk who don't expect SA to get get something back for his up front investment here.  Suspect £80k a year is far less than we'd be paying for a bank loan.
