Whit??? A good winning run until just after the restart? I take it you are either getting bunged a cheeky £10 to write this stuff, and pave the way for us going again with last season’s dross,  or you didn’t see a single Falkirk game last season. In what way was getting beat by Airdrie and East Fife part of a “good winning run”???? 
Inside a month, is the memory of what just happened about to fall under the revisionists knife so that it isn’t so bad after all?
Just because the official site doesn’t bother to write up a match report of the last Airdrie game doesn’t mean that it didn’t happen.

We caught Montrose and forfar cold after the restart and that was our 'good 'winning run.  We were pretty crap in both games as we have been in about all but two games I can think of. Away to Dumbarton and home to cove.  Anyone who thinks we have something to build on must be watching from the moon.

The warning signs were absolutely on the wall before the shutdown. Away at East Fife was one of the worst Falkirk performances I have ever seen.

Without the injuries we may well have limped over the line. But what team goes through a whole season without picking up injuries? The fact we had to rely on utter dross like Miller, Leitch and Francis when others were unavailable, and watch them get completely outplayed by Peterhead is entirely M&M's fault.

The first 8 games were acceptable. I don't expect us to win 6-0 every week in this league. But following 14 games were laughably bad. A combination of shite fullbacks, 1 up front, zero pace or creativity in the middle of the park and a terrible brand of football meant we weren't even creating chances in the games we were losing towards the end. It was certainly a massive low point in my time watching Falkirk.

Saying all that, if we can add to guys who are left like Telfer and Morrison and get Kelly, Alston, Connolly & Keena fully fit I'm optimistic for next season.

Just catching up on this from the last few days. Can’t believe what I’m reading to be honest. I got shot down for giving Strachan as an example of someone the Rawlins could maybe tempt but now we’re talking up Paul Sheerin as a great proposition as manager!!? Jesus wept. 
 

The only positive is that he hasn’t been tarnished with a recent managerial failure. If you would have believed the clubs statement then you would have expected someone left field. Would have hoped the Rawlins connections would have identified an up and coming coach from down South and not have McCann and Rice as front runners when the application pool runs dry. 
 

From the sheer anger at the board to the defence of this fiasco leaves me lost for words. If we can’t muster the desire for real change in the governance of our club after this then we truly can’t complain if we find ourselves a permanent fixture in this league.

Probably because that's a complete nonsense shout.

How did Gomis get on for you guys this season? Any chat on teams interested in him?

He was done but that's not to say he done bad. He was just trying to cover every blade of grass because he was surrounded by lazy shite. The amount of bookings he got kind of highlighted that he has lost a yard and really needs somebody to do the running for him.

In the last 30 years, who would be the midfielder to play alongside Latapy (has to be him) in the midfield in a best of X1 with a 4-4-2 formation? I’ve always been a bit reluctant to say Vaulks because he never played in the top flight but I think it has to be him, just because he’s the all-round package and firm fan favourite.

Deserved of all accolades, great footballer, great guy and hope he keeps to his word that he’ll be back one day ( hopefully with the colours on) 

Could you imagine the reception in years to come if he is announced as manager !

Place would be packed out to welcome him.

Rawlings is not the majority shareholder if there was money to be made from the land surrounding the stadium then SA and MR would have sniffed it out . On the flip side there is a fortune in agents fees for a tiny investment in proportionate terms .The agent of an English championship player / now maybe premiership like Fulton will have targeted earning 500 k from his career since he left Falkirk as a minimum.. Rawlings plans to have a stake in more than one club ( it’s a business) and punt as many players on to a higher level - that’s his game plan -Developing land in the bog road requires a much bigger investment and therefore risk - it’s not Rawlings bag .

The Americans look at every aspect of a business and what can be maximised by their investment.

Worked with them and for them its is how their minds work.

Land surrounding the stadium has big development potential and therefore the biggest return.

Time will tell !

We're forgetting Rawlings isnt American, but i agree with you on how the Americans work they will asset strip any ounce of a business and then let the rest go but as mentioned we dont have any assets to strip.
