The Falkirk FC Thread


Recommended Posts

For me, if this signing goes ahead then I will be finished with the team I loved and supported since 1979. The board have decisions to make but with this wind of change, they need to behave appropriately.

If we are to rely on our new management team to find a potent striker, then they need to look further afield than a Clyde player in his early thirties and with baggage no-one wants anything to do with. I trust that they will, but we're Falkirk and anything could happen.

Frankly the FSS will be a total non starter if signing Goodwillie goes ahead.

Less than 24 hours ago I was calling for the club to refute this whilst others were dismissing this in the basis of one tabloid report (it wasn’t just one).
Given the Express, Mirror and Sun all now reporting this when do we start to take it seriously?…

Can I ask why FSS would be first line of attack for fans who disagree with a particular signing, employee, policy, etc?  FSS is a separate organisation.  Up to everyone what to do with their own money, but it seems counterintuitive to weaken fans’ ability to argue for change.

We’d also surely have to pay a fee to Clyde. It isn’t just poaching him on a free then paying him meh wages. A fat 33 year old rapist who fucking Ben Hall has had in his back pocket before. It would be one of the most mind bogglingly awful transfers you’d ever see.

If we need a striker bid Kyle Lafferty has just left his Turkish club. 34 years of age so not much difference

Lafferty is a greedy b*****d, he wanted ridiculous cash to stay with Killie after they got relegated, and he's got baggage aswell. Granted he's not a rapist but still.

I won’t be taking my money out but I’ll be a bit miffed if the Holt news today was timed to soften the blow re DGW…

Money from FSS ultimately goes to the club. People will lose interest in/stop following the club if we sign Goodwillie. Why would they continue to put money in through FSS?

 

I'm on edge until the window closes but surely to christ they aren't going to follow up news which is as universally well received as Holt going by signing Goodwillie, which could generously be described as "splitting the fanbase"?

Imagine standing in some bin like Methil while the young team are singing "he scores when he wants". Makes my skin crawl.

I don't see Dowds being with us, I think something will get sorted with Arbroath so he goes there permanent. Even if he is back till the end of the season he'll probably sign a PCA. He seems to be loving life there and has a chance of playing top flight football. You can't begrudge him the opportunity. 

Won't be permanent the now  or in the summer unless he's willing to give up full time football. They won't pay full time wages and he'd be training himself every day. He's been training with us all season so shouldn't be hard to get him back in the first team squad till the summer and then he can choose what he wants to do. I'd then expect him to move to another full time outfit . I would hope to he'll we wouldn't send him back on loan unless they want to pay all his wages which I doubt very much but you never know.

Four family STs less if the club proceed with the signing of this piece of shite

I’d be finished with the club until the current board and player were gone. I wouldn’t see a purpose in funding them and being apart of the FSS during this time. FSS currently have two reps on the board who surely can make a difference.

I would simply have no interest in the club to warrant having a say in it.

Even if you ignore the massive elephant in the room, I'm not convinced it makes sense to pay compensation for somebody who'll be turning 33 in a couple of months and hasn't played above L1 in years.

How ironic would it be if it transpired that Holt was the stick-in-the-mud holding Falkirk back from signing DG and his departure this morning paved the way for his signing.

Caveat Emptor!

Exactly!

that’s why I told you to keep a list, these people who said they wouldn’t join until  X happens or will stop paying if Y happens don’t understand what they are joining up for. It’s not a ten pound donation to the club every month.

once fans own the club, we can set policy like never employing a person with a criminal record or judgement against them.

Bit extreme, wouldn't have complained if we'd got David Martindale in.

Whether or not to sign goodwillie from a moral perspecy  would be up to the board of directors and not Holt I would suggest.

Please, please don't sign Goodwillie. Please. I'm literally begging you. We've done so much good today hitting the reset button, don't mess all of that up for the sake of signing a 33 year old from Clyde. 

Couldn’t agree more.

I'm already getting myself worked into a frothing mess at the "ultimately Martin and Kenny are in charge of the first team and it's up to them to sign who they see fit" buck passing that's going to ensue soon.
