The Falkirk FC Thread

There is a hysteria about this - understandable considering his record. 

There are perfectly valid reasons why Falkirk supporters do not want Gary Holt involved in the process of recruiting players, in fact do not want Gary Holt involved in the football club in any capacity whatsoever. And such a viewpoint sure as hell isn't "hysteria", or anything even approaching it.

Anyone know if any of the injured players are back for tomorrow's game? Lewis said on commentary last week that Mccann was hoping to be in contention but there's a fair few others.

When does Dowds loan end ? I’m assuming if it already has, he’ll go straight into the first team tomorrow never mind the squad.

I often think when players become " injured " when a new regime takes over it is more a psychological injury than a physical one. Some players don't adapt well to new approaches and I can see big changes at our club. Wait and see. Hetherington and Ruth spring to mind

I’m sure someone put on here not long ago that it was the 6th.

I have a bad feeling we will be signing Goodwillie,had a message from a mate earlier who has been told to expect a signing that will divide the support.

Tbf Goodwillie won’t divide the support as much as absolutely decimate it.

I’m out if we sign that disgusting rapist.

Supposedly was a q/a between the new bod and some fans and I believe they asked the question there which they received a majority support

That will be bad if that happens. Personally, I don’t think the new board would be as stupid.

I’m actually not convinced that’s the case, using social media or online forums as a guide isn’t a fair reflection. Most people /other fans I’ve chatted to tend to be open to the idea (to an extent)but wouldn’t put it out there to be shot down in an online platform. Im actually very on the fence with it as I can see the arguments both for and against, does a ex criminal post conviction/sentence deserve to be punished for the rest of his or her life indefinitely and actively prohibited from earning a living / contributing to society in some way? On the other hand the nature of said crime in this case is so disgusting you also can’t blame people for holding a long term grudge or not wanting to be associated to an individual with Goodwillies past. I’d like to know if Clyde for example actually took any hit in season ticket sales or overall gates after singing him, was there a genuine majority of fans so outraged they refused to go back or in reality was it more likely a very small percentage who no doubt loudly voiced they’re opposition on online platforms such as this?

If you’re genuinely willing to actively cheer for and support a rapist just because the football team you support might score some goals and win some games then there’s something severely wrong with you.

Yep I’m also of this opinion. I would be finding a Junior or Lowland league club to support until he and the board left. It really would be a dark day in the clubs history, imo.

They have kept Holt on haven't they. Now that is fucking stupid. If Goodwillie signs he signs he'll get us goals BUT is our support not divided anyway? He'll divide a support whoever he signs for.

Your point about Holt is valid however signing somebody with DG’s history is another issue entirely.

I don’t give a flying f**k about any other teams support mate.

Compared a rapist to a shite sporting director (or whatever his job title is). Deary me.

TBF most of our signings have divided support as but more as in that's a good signing or not good enough and totally underwhelming the latter 2 being the ones used more.

I think the majority support have made their feelings known on the Goodwillie issue and that  there is no way they would be that stupid to do something like that and also didn't one of the Clyde supporters say there would need to be a fee for him to sign so I think whoever is spouting it is talking sh*te

I had a genuine heads gone reading some of the comments on Facebook the other day about the potential signing. I can see me having another 8 year hiatus if this materialises.

I worked in Criminal Justice for a time and I am really passionate about people being rehabilitated. To do that you must accept your crime and work towards never repeating it.
In the case of DGW he does not feel he has done anything to be remorseful for which is completely different. A big no no no from me.

Could you imagine if the board took the gamble and signed him and he ended up being utter shit. They’d have ruined the club completely. 
 

Regarding the fee, there may be a clause in his contract that means he can leave if he gets offered full time football, which would make him more appealing for some clubs.

Signing De Bruyne could divide the Falkirk support.
