That will be the Stirling Uni Team Camelon took 5 off last weekend 

No because the Stirling UNI we played were the EOS one. The one Falkirk would have played would be the Lowland League team who beat broxburn 2-1 last week

Really like Sheerin so far, speaks well, has a style he’s trying to get the team to work towards and doesn’t shirk from being humble about mistakes the team made. 
He’s a massive upgrade on M&M, Hartley, McKinnon imo.

We always say this at the start of a new reign though so this time I'm being cautious. The football we've tried to play has been a lot better in the early stages but he's got himself a big black mark by signing Wilson for this season.

Still need two/three quality starters to come in as I'd like to see Telfer in the 10 where he can make the difference in games, we desperately need something different upfront and I'd like someone to challenge Mckay for a place.

Do they have a live stream? 

They did in their last home game with Accies so assume so but doubt they’ll announce until a couple of days into “ticket sales” or maybe on game day itself on Wed. 1st game for me “live” and in person on Wed.

You have earned your stripes this week 😉

I thought we actually played well yesterday. Probably the better team and didn't deserve to lose. A decent striker and a centre half and we should be absolutely fine. Certainly not miles off as someone who hasn't even watched us yet has suggested. Much more entertaining so far than any game last season.

I think the next 3 or 4 signings will be key.

I was quite happy with how they played yesterday. Play like that against the teams in league 1 and we should be OK.

However would say we need a new striker as, although Dowds put a shift in it just ain't working for him and not sure about Wilson. Center of the defence is also a worry. Could do with someone with a bit of pace in there as looked slow yesterday.

I think Mckay and Dixon will be fine as a pairing in league 1 the downside being if either is injured or suspended you saw what happened yesterday, Miller is not only slow but a liability and Hall is just murder.  So another decent centre back required. Another combative midfielder wouldn't go amiss and I think two strikers although I feel it might only be one now that we have signed Wilson.

After yesterday's performance I'd be going with this against Edinburgh City on Wednesday.

Mutch
Williamson Mckay Dixon Mccann
Telfer Hetherington
Ross
Morrison Dowds Nesbitt

Might be what they do. Dixon really gets found out against better opposition. His lack of pace is concerning now he's CH

Dixon was one of our best players yesterday and didn’t put a foot wrong imo

Wouldn't say Dixons lack of pace is an issue in itself, the problem for me was pairing him with someone even slower who doesn't read the game as well.

If they can get the right player in to wear no.9 then I reckon we just about have enough quality for the starting 11. If Holt gets this wrong it's a failed summer.

A decent no.9 as was shown with McManus can make all the difference, the flip side being if they are out for any length of time the replacements weren't good enough. It was the same in his spell with us, Sammon and McMillan were dugshite, whoever comes in will need to hit the ground running and hopefully stay injury free.

Paul Dixon is comfortably the best centre back in the division regardless of age, pace  whatever. As a left back not so much anymore but there’s no chance that we’ll get a better centre back this summer.

Dixon would be one of the first names on the teamsheet for me. He may well form a decent partnership with McKay. But if one of them is injured or if Dixon has to fill in at LB if McCann is missing, the idea of Hall or Miller back there gives me the absolute fucking fear. Vital we bring in another CH as well as more options in the final third
