The Falkirk FC Thread


Recommended Posts

Will Vaulks might genuinely be the last Falkirk player I absolutely adored.
Vaulks and Leahy. I was very high on Leahy in his last season and that goal against Hibs will be in my life as long as there is youtube.

What a fucking hit son.

Vaulks obviously ranks at 1 though. Professional, leader, good guy, first class shithouse, top notch talent and despite not being critical like Leahys, the absolute thundercunt of a strike he stuck in at Ibrox in 2015 will always be one of my favourite goals too.

That was a missile the one at Ibrox. Leahys goal from out on the wing away at livi was peach aswell.

What’s the latest on Ryan Williamson? Heard he had signed a pre contract with us but will that be out the window?

The bit I wonder about if true is who sanctioned it in the first place? I doubt that will happen now.

I absolutely love a goal that looks in from the second it leaves the boot. That was a glorious example

Absolutely agree. Another PR horror story. Maybe Holt was wanting him to stay, but they couldn’t reach an agreement. We will never know. If he was headed out the exit door anyway, then singling him out for the treatment they knew (or should have known) he would receive on social media is horrendous behaviour.
Whether this was released deliberately or not is irrelevant. It has caused a social media pile-on to a member of FFC staff. It has the potential to cause mental distress that could so easily have been avoided. 

The club needs to get some proper PR skills on the Board to end this kind of blunder from happening again and again !

Again, suspect there would have been a clause which allows him to break the contract should promotion not be attained. 

Given that a PCA is simply an indication of intent, and not a binding contract, no such clause is necessary. That is often why they are not announced.

Couldn’t have put it better, another shop window dummy we’ve ensured for two years. PR skills ? Really ? Some need to get a grip of reality on here. We’re languishing in the third tier of Scottish football with the worst set of players that tossed this league, and now blaming the PR skills, couldn’t make it Fck.....up

No need to single him out if it wasn’t necessary, that’s the point. Stick on a release list or if it couldn’t wait because of other negotiations taking place then fair enough. If it’s deliberate treatment of one player then it shows the club, yet again, in a bad light and doesn’t do us any favours.

 

Of course, he needed punted.

Was he the guy who kept shooting on sight in the cup final?  Which made you end up with about 30 shots on target by the end?

Aye Vaulks would shoot from anywhere. I do recall him fizzing one just over the bar early on in the final i'm sure.

It made sense actually, given that Esson was beaten with two very tame free kicks in the SF from Van Dijk and Guidetti.

Folk still whining about Durnan. Jesus. It's info it's fed out once it comes available.  Doubt he gives a feck. People getting their knickers in a twist about feck all. If we'd been less bothered about what others think when it came to m and m they'd have been punted a lot sooner instead of after the last game before the bloody split.

State of these new accounts coming on to post about how it's bad PR the way Durnans release was announced. f**k me that's new levels petty. He is owed zero and was a player everyone wanted to see leave and one that everyone had a grumble about with him not being on the first list. Happily have the club announce each an every imposter that is being released in this fashion. My only gripe was the lack of trebuchet.

I don't really give a f**k about the etiquette of the announcement, what concerns me is that it wasn't announced at the same time as the others which leads me to believe Holt was trying to get him to stay and negotiations eventually broke down and so it was confirmed he is leaving. If Holt was wanting to keep that impostor then it shows his judgement of a player and we're in big fucking trouble. Still.

Can't believe folk that moan about a DoF role saying its not needing and then want to employ someone for PR .

I couldnt really care if they announced his departure with sign writing in the sky as long as he is gone how he has managed to carve a career out in football i will never know.  His woeful defending and in some cases sending off(s) is part of the reason we are still in this league.
