Just Falkirk fans being typical Falkirk fans. You had people venting their spleen when we were flying in the premier and look at us now.

we don’t need to make this shit up at all. There is a slice of support who just like to main and be negative - even without reason.

Just waiting for some conspiracy theory about the patrons being cahoots with the FSS to Rob the shares from the fans and sell it to the Rawlins to build a drive through cinema. Fucking stupid but wouldn’t surprise me if some rocket hit out with this next. 

ooooh - a drive thru cinema!!! Cool.

4 fans on the Board. 2 FSS and 2 Patrons 

I'm good with it BPM its a step in the right direction but the element that are showing OF levels of paranoia in why someone wants to invest and whats the agenda i even seen some numpty on twitter calling  for the "charlatans that are invested hounded already its nuts.  Yet they were happy to call the coffee baron "Boss" and "cant wait till you take over" it beggars belief

Getting fed up with a lot of the negativity on here.

My son is one of the patrons group and has paid his money into the club for a sizeable wedge of shares.

I believe he’s also put himself up for a board position but, if unsuccessful, he’s happy to volunteer his services in other ways as he’s freed some time up by recently selling one of his businesses.

What do some people want?

This is a new beginning.

Its time for everyone to rally round and do their bit.

We wont get success on the park until we have sorted the stuff off the park imo. Most certainly this is a step in the right direction.

There will be folk who'll moan and groan no matter what,especially on here. As Ive said on many occasions theres some who are bigger fans of forums than they are of the club.

I’m all for this new investment but don’t blame any fans for wanting more information or being slightly sceptical. Most of what I’ve read is people with genuine questions about it. 

Anyway there is a lot of work to be done and some hangers on that need shifting but this is hugely positive so well done to all involved.

I cant understand why even with what we know has to be sceptical about these guys are fans and businessmen as well we all have a common cause we have tried the "Proven businessmen" approach and look where that got us time for out the box thinking and a different approach

Absolutely agree with this.

I’m all for the new investment. BPM knowing a few of them and saying they’re good guys is enough to convince me this is really promising.

However I absolutely do not blame others for wanting more info before parting with their actual cash. It’s the same club we all want to do well and we’ve been burnt many times before, a few recently. Slamming these folk for even asking what the goals/aims/direction is will only alienate them. Time to move in the right direction with genuine openness and discussion

No they are in favour of this as far as I'm aware. The pair of them aren't interested in being involved these days and as far as I know have talked about donating some of their shares at some point if the whole thing proves successful.

Better late than never but I wont hold my breath. Talk is cheap. It’s a shame the pair of them weren’t in favour a few years ago when Mark Campbell was announced as the preferred bidder, otherwise we might not be in this position now. Burying their heads in the sand like cowards for the past 12 months by no means absolves these two from blame. The sooner they get to fcuk the better.

Has any of the doubters stopped to think that the patrons and latest investors have followed the club long enough to see money p*ssed up against the wall especially over the past few years in paying off hartleys duds, RMs duds and dodgy approaches for managers SFA/SPFL fines and you want to know how the money will be spent.  the simple answer is fixing whats gone wrong over the past 10 years putting a proper accountable system in place instead of winging it and hoping it works.

Not heard your other great theory for a while , the one about the Rawlins trying to run the club into the ground to pick up the shares for next to nothing and sell it on for a mega profit.

How's that one going?  

Commiserations on your avatar passing away. R.I.P.

I think the biggest cloud on the playing side is the politics off the park i think a lot of us have worked in places where things have been toxic at the top level to affect those at middle to bottom level

I don't but my old work place was just f`**king toxic as well..lol

Sitting in the background letting things run their course.

Patience - Patience just biding his time and has not gone away.

He's surely going to have to invest more money if he wants to keep his 26 percent as that will be diluted by the new shares going to the patrons now.
