The Falkirk FC Thread


Recommended Posts

Nothing says confidence in an appointment like announcing it at 11pm on a Friday night. 

Interesting to see how it turns out though. You'd have to assume he doesn't have a tremendous pedigree, because with all due respect, he wouldn't be rocking up in League One if he did.

But it's a departure from the usual suspects, and that's to be commended. Going for someone like Brian Rice is a lazy/easy pick, and it's the process that leads to folk like Jim Duffy and Gus McPherson still kicking about in the Championship in 2021.

I know you are enthusiastic but asking people to invest to change the management team is not what most people are thinking…

Whatever anybody’s individual thoughts are re management or changing the tea lady I just think it’s clear the best way to have them represented and acted upon is as a fans collective opposed to a lone voice. It’s the same reason large workforce’s join a union , strength and influence in numbers.

“In his 15-year career to date Martin has won a total of 4 league titles and 4 cups, with numerous runners-up awards. His teams have achieved a total of 10 top-three finishes and reached play-offs in 12 out of 14 seasons. Martin also has a 53% win-rate from his 400+ games as a head coach.

Despite spending his whole coaching career abroad, Martin is a Scot, who was born in Thurso and raised in Larbert. As a child he was a ball boy at Brockville Park and has been a huge Falkirk fan ever since. Martin still has family in the area and has completed all of his coaching badges, including the Level 5 UEFA Pro Licence, via the Scottish FA. We’re sure all Bairns will warmly welcome Martin back home, and give him their full support as we endeavour to turn this season and the whole club around.”

This appears to be backed up on wiki.
Pretty exciting appointment in my opinion…

Tbf, it’s the kind of ‘breath of fresh air’ appointment we all cry out for whenever there’s a vacancy. Especially when you punt an underachiever, that excitement of getting a new manager in is completely shagged out of you when you see the top favourites are folk like McIntyre, Rice, Kettlewell, Duffy and McCann, and you just want something a bit different because the usual suspects are so uninspiring.

This is quite a bold appointment, though. Considering Falkirk’s current position in the league in what I’d imagine is a massive season for you financially. Rennie could turn out to be the appointment you’ve needed for a long time, but at the same time you could see yourselves thinking “we’ll, what the f**k did we expect was going to happen?!”

We’re in a similar position with Yogi but for different reasons. Could be great. Could be a complete shambles.

It would also be massively fucking hilarious to see you spend 4 (four) years by the seaside.
