The Falkirk FC Thread

Anyhoo, for the simple reason that we can't afford to pay Sheerin off, just promote Grainger and hope for the best. Hopefully he's as frustrated as the rest of us at the on going shitwittery and can do some sensible things to change it.

The midfield although has skill has no dirtiness in it. We have no guts, strength or fight. Look at yesterdays midfield. Telfer, Morrison, McGuffie and Nisbett. 

IMO a manager who cannot get a tune out of they 4 in league one is not worth his salt unfortunately.

The point as you are well aware is that every current manager is your worst ever.

It’s a false point you are making. People talk about their living memory. They might be 20 years old, or 30, or 40, or 50, so “living memory” is not a definitive time span.

Peope commenting that Hartley is “the worst ever” may well have done so prior to experiencing McKinnon, M&M and Sheerin. That we have had four sequential failures skews thing even further. Go back as far as Houstie, and your “every current manager is your worst ever” falls apart.

Tommy Younger

Sammy Kean

Tommy Younger before my time but I remember Sammy Kean. He was in charge for a season and a half. Finished mid table the first season, then John Prentice was brought in midway through the second season to rescue us as we looked like getting relegated.

The saving grace for Sammy Kean with me is that he brought Johnny Graham to the Club.👏

For a similar abysmal record to where we are now look no further than Billy Little. 77-79. Two seasons in the bottom league and looking like staying there until John Haggart was brought in.

Still amazes me that we are three days on and after that last interview, Sheerin is still here

Also agree with the view that a CEO and DoF are not needed for a League 1 team - we didn't have them when we were in the Premiership!

Definitely need a return to a coach/manager that also handles the scouting. If we ever return to the top level, maybe we can consider a CEO and DoF, but for now while we continue our sabbatical in a lower league, let's use the money more wisely - oh wait, what is our track record again?

Billy Little was before my time, but you can see him here, that dip in the late 70s when we were, er, in the same place we are now.

For me, the worst manager(s) of my lifetime have been John Lambie, and the last three or four we've had. Everyone else can get a pass.

the only manager who forced me to watch another team was Lambie after the game against stenny......i walked out after that game vowing to never watch my beloved Falkirk until he was gone.....so i watched Lithgae rose until Sir Alex Totten took over. fast forward to the Montrose game at home an I'm back there again not paying £18 to watch that imposter kid on he knows what he's doing on the touchline. 

sad times indeed.......

I'm not sure why there are so many fans of other clubs who don't seem to realise that it's perfectly possible for your "worst" manager to be replaced by someone even worse, at which point the new manager will then become the "worst".

If for some reason Falkirk gave me a game at left-back I'd automatically become the worst-ever left-back to play for them. If they then gave one of my even more overweight and less fit mates a game at left-back then they'd become the worst-ever left-back and I wouldn't be any more.

It's not difficult.

Presumably we’d also then need to stick with your pal at left back for the next few years to ensure continuity.

Definitely, wouldn't want to be seen as a club that gets rid of too many left-backs because then no left-back would ever want to play for us ever again.

Na, as long as you, a fan, was able to provide a suitable list of willing and available replacements who were absolutely iron clad guaranteed to do a better job , a replacement would be sanctioned.

We'd get a reputation as being a hire-and-fire outfit.

Not good, unless you want to drive down share prices and get the club at a rock bottom price.

Billy Little,  that's a blast from the past.  When I trained with Scotland at U12/U13 level Billy Little was one of our SFA coaches. His terrible record might explain why my football career went downhill from there!

Anyone else hear how Paul Watson told the Dunfermline manager he was ill and couldn't play, but went abroad on holiday and got a new haircut instead?

Come on home agent Paul 

Yes, that's how you disrespect a manager, oft!
