Not sure how Dick has progressed but I’d take Hetherington in a heartbeat. Such a classy player and knows the division. He’s the type of player we should have signed first year round.

Said months ago we need to sign decent young players ; with a blend of experience. Tried the “ better” lower league superstars who have been shocking.

I could pick 11 players out the last four games that would have skooshed this league.........that’s how bad the quality is down here.....and yes......not one from our shite

Just a helpful reminder that just because we once brought in "some old guys/an ex player/someone who looks like they should cruise it at this level/kids/loanees etc". IT DOESN'T MEAN EVERY SIGNING THAT FITS THAT DESCRIPTION WILL BE A DUD

Let's judge each signing on their individual merits.

I remember the days we thought Liam Craig was coming back and a good few were slating the prospect of him signing again! How far we have fallen

I remember the days when Hughes chased him out the door. Wasn't that a great move?🤯

It’s already happened the Rawlings have openly admitted the have transferred their shareholding into a company in which their friend / legal adviser / and players agent has a significant holding . Why do you think they wanted to buy into Falkirk - to make money of course- THE only way to make money is to fill the team window with your guys -if they move on you make cash - if you acquire some of the sell on clause monies you make serious cash and will have your 350 back pretty quickly . It’s not necessarily bad though we will get to keep some of the cash and theoretically have a better team on the park - but it’s a complex plan and we have got off to a dreadful start 

If that is indeed their plan - to use Falkirk Football Club as some sort of shop window in the hope that their players can be flipped and quickly moved on elsewhere for a profit - it can only be concluded that they have made a catastrophic and spectacular error of judgement. That is literally the last thing on earth this shambles needs. What colour is the sky in their world? Transfer fees😄 For jobbers troughing about in League 1, the nether regions of the Championship if we get lucky, for a few hundred quid a week ? Say they somehow implement this plan. We get a striker who scores fifteen goals in the first half of the season and has us well on course for promotion. On the final day of the January transfer window, an offer is received. Not an earth shattering one, and certainly worth considerably less to us than promotion four months later would be. Losing him would significantly weaken the squad and leave no time to source a replacement. From a football point of view, there should be only one response. But in the background, you've got agents agitating for the bid to be accepted, as they stand to make hard cash from the deal going through. As I said in an earlier post, the conflict of interest is just staggering.

I'm actually thankful that I'm not one of those who is setting any great store by the Rawlins as some sort of final hope. I didn't think they were in it for any dubious reasons, I just have no idea why they have become involved with us in the first place, especially when they don't have a controlling interest. Their Birthday Caird pish of a few weeks ago was completely unenlightening and revealed nothing. But if this is indeed the goal, then my God, where does the madness end?

Probably to sign a 34 year old over the hill player

I'd take Liam Dick he's a solid enough left back but can't say I remember much of Hetherington from the times we've played against him.

I wouldn't be signing anyone though till our new manager is in post. He should have the final say on what players to sign  from the ones Holt sources. Any other way of doing things would be shambolic.

I agree, the only way anyone should be signed is if the preferred manager has been identified and he has agreed targets.

Talk of new managers, signings etc means nothing to me at the moment. It is second to what is going on at board level. New manager/signings should not deflect from the main thing, we need these c***s gone and should not be giving them a penny until they have.

Well if it is going to be Peter Grant he could have put forward those two players as targets. Our club are all for telling us they'll follow the correct process for the appointment but we never actually do. So wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if we've had Grant lined up for a while. Somebody on the facebook page mentioned they'd heard Grant was coming in as assistant to a young manager. I wouldn't be abject to that.

Hearing those names, this is exactly what I was thinking. Seems to be a few different sources convinced Grant is heading our way so wouldn't be a surprise really.

Any other names kicking about? Rumours always help lift the spirits.

It would appear Holt is doing the hiring and firing and not waiting for the new manager to make any decisions. Players learning their fate over next few days. What I have an issue with is the that if Grant is put in place in whatever capacity(manager or assistant) he is just a yes man for the SD. If that’s the case how are the club going to progress. It’s becomes another Romanov type scenario. #Jobs for the boys

I heard a guy in his mid 50’s from Grangemouth is going to win the Euromillions tomorrow night and spend a chunk of the money chasing Ritchie and Superfan away to f**k from our club.

If that is the case it will become apparent very quickly and the fans really need to withhold the ST money.

They obviously see him fit to make those decision's as he's took them in training and seen them in games but there's no way he should be making the decisions on who stays and who goes. That should solely down to whoever gets the managers role. They should then feed up the chain to Holt what players they are looking for and also have the final say on which exact player comes in. No doubt we'll do it completely backwards and Holt will be recruiting them all.
