The Falkirk FC Thread


Recommended Posts

Tbh a player we signed only a few weeks ago being punted on loan to Elgin sums up the shambles that’s been our recruitment over the last 5 years.

Well over a hundred signings- the vast majority nowhere near good enough. We won’t be going anywhere as a club until that changes.

The sad thing is most of the rest of the squad could go as well and you wouldn’t bat an eyelid.

Attend games and protest.  I guarantee that banner at the last game will have been noticed and discussed - you need to escalate that and make voices heard.   Speak to likeminded fans, organise the same in bigger numbers and hound them out over weeks.  

It wouldn't surprise me if some of the most vocal anti-board protesters haven't even emailed the board to make their feelings known - I certainly haven't seen any emails or replies shared here.  

I'm not saying there it won't be hard to do but organised protests have a far better chance of causing change than sitting back on a PC abusing other supporters for being 'soft' or c*nts

Correct.

I'm all for fan involvement in the club and, on balance, I'd like to have seen the NB bid succeed; hopefully it's not yet dead. I can only take BPM's word for it that the guys involved are all Falkirk fans and only have the best interests of the club at heart and I've really no reason to doubt him as I know he's exactly that himself.

Their cause is being done no good whatsoever though by the likes of that MSG idiot (and others) acting the way they do.

To quote Gary Deans on the Q&A.

”without throwing anyone under a bus The recruitment now is er em eh way better that what I er em eh witnessed before” 

The Wilson signing shows it isn’t. 

It is worse now than in the rest of my lifetime.

Add Brad Mckay on a 3 year deal to that.

Don't agree with that bit. I feel that some of them aren't being used properly though and a formation change is required. Don't think that will happen however.

From the current squad I've been unimpressed with McKay, Hall, Hetherington and, to a lesser extent, Miller (because he's ok for back-up) and Ompreon.

I think the rest are okay at this level and would be able to make the step up a league.

We will agree to disagree but my opinion stays the same. Our board are so arrogant that protests will mean nothing to them, the only way to make them sit up and take notice is if ST sales and gates start going down. The only way to force change and make them engage towards proper fan involvement is to starve them of cash. It may be pain in the shorter term but I feel it would be for the benefit in the long run. Whilst there is an us and them attitude we will never all be pulling in the same direction for the good of our club.

As I say though each to their own, if folk still want to give them cash that is up to them.

I agree with the logic but it's not working and so would be the slowest of slow burners as next chance isn't until next summer.  Protests are the only way to make voices heard now.

If we haven't asked for him to not play in the Scottish Cup, he'll be on display for the entire nation when Elgin go to Clydebank for the televised Round 2 game.

He'll end up scoring a hat-trick or something.

League 2/LL/HL is about his level, he generally scored against the lower league teams for us. Elgin is exactly the sort of club I expected him to sign for originally tbh.

That’s potentially worse than the Wilson signing btw. Wilson is ganting and more than likely won’t play another minute for us. Brad McKay on the other hand will still be here for at least another 18 months and continue to stink the place out and cost us countless goals during that time.

Just now, Bairn in Exile said:

They've got Robinson, Shaw, Cameron and have just signed Callum Hendry on loan so they are maybe done on the striker front. Especially as that article was from a month ago.

Mcguffies been pretty shite too. Against Dumbarton all he did was keep passing the ball.back.

Why should we bother though when clearly there is a lack of appetite on here. I speak for myself as do others. Staging a protest would be to speak on behalf of the whole fan base. I was pissed off when that letter was sent in regarding Hughes so wouldn’t think that a small group of us speak on behalf of the whole support.

There’s no appetite for a protest and so much to your disappointment I’ll continue to voice my concerns on here, as is the norm for forums. Just because I’m not for organising a protest though does not mean that I can’t criticise the same way you can pick formations without having to send a copy to Paul Sheerin so let’s stop this chat. 
 

We’re 6th in League One having lost 3 times already and finished 5th last year. Why voicing criticism on here should be a problem for others frankly says a lot.
