Judging on the season there shouldn’t be many kept. However we’ll find out soon.

I hope you're Dowds and not Keena. Dowds has a better build for a goalie.

As long as he’s not Sammon, got the build but shite at cross balls.

That might be his position. Not a striker IMO

I agree on Keena, Dowds and Sammon.

Look on the bright side you'll get to see Ray McKinnon next season. 😜

Your username was a lot more exciting than your comment.

Great that we are still box office to so many fans of other clubs. The hatred felt towards us from other clubs fans gives me such a feeling of warmth and wellbeing, I would absolute hate us to be one of those cuddly clubs that others like. Seen on another thread someone saying we are in the top three most hated clubs in Scotland, that is absolutely beautiful to me.

I  don't think you should confuse ridicule with hatred.

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? 

 

They don’t want a controlling interest probably because they don’t want the hassle of running a club ( been there done that + and a controlling interest attracts a higher level of scrutiny from the league.)They wanted a Scottish club as it’s relatively easy to sell on to England and you can get serious level of control for buttons. I guess they will acquire similar interests in other low cost markets wales Ireland etc maybe Lithuania and the like for the same reasons . Possibly with an aim to even move players between “their” clubs . As I said this isn’t necessarily bad as the need us to be top six to rake in any serious cash . I welcome there involvement as at least it’s a plan that could work and they are not dummies like the other board members who had no plan .
So until we are in the top league there will be a trade off with keeping on guys who can help us move up the leagues. The head coach however cannot be totally his own man when selecting al the players for obvious reasons. Of course I could be totally wrong the agency thing is just a co-incidence and as mr Rawlings said he used to love visiting Scotland so why not own a stake in a provincial club there. Makes total sense to me !

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

So where are you getting this information? another piece of made up crap...

Nope the thread stated top 3 in the most hated clubs in Scotland not most ridiculed. Maybe just me but I’ve never really felt the need to go onto another teams threads and rip it out them even when they have been on the bones of their arse. I’ve been on P&B since 2003 and never really took great pleasure in ripping other fans constantly as experience in life has taught me what goes around comes around.

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

I can exclusively reveal that [insert new manager here]'s first signing will be none other than ex-Falkirk stalward, Jean-Francois Lecsinel.

Aye, I don’t think it’ll be him anyway but he comes across the complete opposite.

Maybe someone said that, but it's not a feature of what you describe as the box office appeal of all this.

It's simply a question of it being entertaining when a relatively big club finds itself in reduced circumstances.  We saw similar recently with Hearts.

Most fans of diddy clubs don't reserve anything resembling hatred for the likes of Falkirk.

ETA:  And of course what goes around comes around.  It's pretty tame and harmless in the main.  I don't think many of us live in fear of an onslaught we can't cope with when the tables inevitably turn.

I am quite happy that you still see us as a relatively big club. You probably see us in a better light that most of us as,  although others focus on the whole crowd w**k tag most of us are under no illusion of the depths we have no sunk too.

ETA: If in my lifetime the tables do eventually turn 😁🙏
