Not a family member of anyone on the panel.

I don’t want Holt anywhere near the club, have said as much plenty of times as you’d know if you weren’t just stopping by now. 

Does anyone think that board are sacking Holt or Sheerin?? Did you even listen to what they said - it’s clearly far from agenda now despite how pish we are. They defended them to the hilt and more than once stressed constant changing of managers doesn’t help. 

With changing they two off the table what else Do you suggest to Improve our fortunes? Ask the players to work harder? Tell Sheerin to drop his style he is wants to apply and give him the ultimate get out?

Like it or not we need better players for f**k sake. Current bunch proving they aren’t good enough.

 

Spending more cash just means we get more of the same that's the problem.  It's obvious to anyone that Holt can't get the required standard of player in despite having had two transfer windows to do it. We already have 4 strikers on the books one away on loan already. The chances of Holt getting a decent one in just by giving him a few quid more are basically zero as by his own submission he's already failed miserably to persuade 14 other strikers that Falkirk is the place to be. January your mainly looking at loans. Again hid previous record of signing  neilson, Fotheringham,  McClelland, Ruth, krasniqui and Mcdaid on loan so far would tell you the chances of him getting that right are again very slim. You're just throwing good money after bad. It's as simple as that.

Other teams in league one seem to manage to get decent players .

Because other teams don’t waste their time trying to sign players that they have zero chance of getting.

Exactly so we need to change the pool of players we look at.  Looking at the odd part time player for a start wouldn't be a bad idea.

Personal highlight for me this one. Our chairman genuinely saying what fans of other clubs have accused us fans of doing since we’ve been down here. “It’s unfair the other wee teams raise their games against us cos we’re the big boys!”. Absolutely fucking pathetic!!!!

Was there not a 3/4 week spell in the summer when you didn’t sign anyone? That was probably the reason.

We only had 17 first team players signed for the opening game at Cove

Just finishing up watching. Gary Deans might be the most unlikeable man you could have at the top of a football club. 

I'll see your Gary deans and raise you Gary Holt.

Definitely veering into birthday caird territory here but it's actually touching to see so many fans of other clubs watching this and empathising. Thank you.

Scottish football is mostly decent c***s really. Outside old firm fans of course. 

I, as a Montrose fan, think that Falkirk's board and management are doing a great job-long may it continue!! In all seriousness it's never good to see fans alienated by the club they love. I don't pretend to know the ins and outs of the situation but there seems to be a lack of respect for the fans coming from the board and management, which is not good to see

Aye then we signed Jaime Wilson.

Aye probably after trying and failing to get players out with your pull as a league one club.

I know exactly how the Falkirk fans are feeling because I’m confident I went through the same emotions when reading our ridiculous statement.

Blaming supporters, nonsensical excuses, board out of touch with the fan base. I think a season behind closed doors has eroded what little common sense these dafties had to begin with.

Just listened to that whilst at work, and have taken 5 to type this. What the actual f**k is wrong with your board? Attacking fans, attacking old players, high up Falkirk officials (especially your chairman) getting cheeky with players. The only person who can come out of this and genuinely say they showed themselves with class is Sheerin. Raith and Falkirk fans have had their patter over the last few seasons, but I think 99% of Raith fans actually feel sorry for Falkirk fans at this stage. Hope you get out of this situation.

Feel sorry for them?! Come on now…

That's what gets me the most.
The supporter is obviously passionate and his question is polite, knowledgeable and well-researched.
To then have Deans patronise him by going on about "it's not a question, it's a statement" is rage-inducing.
It was unbelievably patronising and unnecessary.

It was also wrong, he did ask a question about how long things would continue before there's a change

Thank you.

When you, the wider audience, take this piss out of us for saying we should be doing better but are hamstrung by utter incompetence at the top level - see? We are correct.

Did you have the same thoughts when Rangers fans were fighting the board? I doubt it.

It's an absolute disgrace what boards can get away with. This Q&A is a masterclass in avoiding questions.

Not been without our own issues on or off the park this season so thought watching the Q&A would be a bit of a laugh…however I ended up genuinely feeling for you lot with those clowns running your club. 
 

Thought Rawlins was the only one who came out of it sounding like he had a vision of what he wanted to do and where he wanted to take the club. 
 

The opening 10 minutes was excruciating and, to be honest, they actually did well to avoid the Q&A descending in to chaos from that point. The comments blaming the fans and the ‘statement not a question’ jibe (to what was a thoroughly well put together piece full of fact) absolutely boiled my piss, even as an Alloa supporter. Deans and Colburn should be the first two out the door. 
 

I actually think the recruitment model you guys have is a good thing, but it sounds like it’s a case of Holt picking who he wants and leaving Sheerin to make it work on the park - for me it should be Sheerin telling Holt what he needs and then leave him to go out and make that happen and deal with the administrative side/contract etc, and leave Sheerin to concentrate solely on the training/games. For me, right model, just being used (it appears from the outside) in the wrong way. There’s then obviously the next question of are those 2 the right people for each of those jobs, which it appears just now neither of them are.
