And Morrison, if rumours are to believed then Williamson as well but I wouldn't begrudge him walking away.

Morrison has a 1 year option but there's non promotion clause..

You would've said the same when rangers and Hibs were in the league though.

Yes, but you actually had an alright squad then.

We've only got   Mutch, Sneddon, Alston, Miller, Keena and Dowds on contracts to 2022.   .    

Dowds? Thought he only got a 1 year deal! 
 

Can’t believe Miller got a 2 year deal 😡

The best Falkirk strapline was the George Craig inspired "The Next Level" to cement ourselves in the top 6.   We were almost relegated at the end of the season,

The most disappointing thing in all this has been the utterly piss poor standard of banter on here.  Christ we're ripe for the picking. 5th/6th in the league hardly won a game of late and all we've had are pictures of folk laughing, jokes from 20 year ago and people saying your team's pish. What's happened to the world? Poor show when the best level of pish take has actually been from Falkirk fans.  Too many lazy lazy posts. I remember the day when people actually put an effort in when it came to that but those days seem to have gone now unfortunately. It's sad really.😢😢

I wonder if any sort of statement will come out today. 

God I hope not. We've suffered enough.

Still, at least you’re taking it well.

Being serious for a minute, Falkirks current situation looks to be primarily down to a failure of recruitment.

Yes, the management staff weren't very good on the park, and good managers can turn decent players into good ones. But it's much easier to simply sign good players in the first place.

What I'd be worried about if I was a Falkirk fan is I'd have no confidence in Holt's ability to implement a decent recruitment process. There are loads of half-decent managers kicking about that can get a player producing something close to his level of ability.

That's the real danger for Falkirk here. Not fixing the recruitment side of things can turn a 3 year stay into a 6 or 7 year one.

I'm more disappointed in the pish poor banter than I am with my team. At least i knew it was coming. Folk on here have had weeks to prepare and have still come up with a load of the same old crap.

We've had 12 years of dreadful recruitment so far.   Given up hoping it will suddenly improve.

So a potential base for the new manager and hoping desperately that somehow Keena and Alston turn back into footballers

Mutch

Williamson New New New

Morrison New Alston New

Keena New

Bench: Sneddon, Miller, Dowds

Distinct lack of 9am release list this morning. Disappointed but not surprised.

He nearly blew it.  Luckily for him Thomson scored in the 88th minute or it could easily have been a draw. The 94th minute goal was irrelevant really.

You’re grasping at straws mate. There’s been some good ones, especially on the ‘Let’s Laugh at Falkirk’ thread. Like the Dunfermline fan said earlier, they got some stinking patter from us when they were shit. The Yflabs obviously make full use of their anonymity. 
 

My advice: put the Arbroath chat to one side and enjoy any decent ribbing that comes our way.
