Knowing how anxious the fans are over this potential signing I find this part of the statement totally bizarre if it’s not about Goodwillie. I’m not sure what else would be worth mentioning? A player sale perhaps?

Do we even have any sellable assets amongst this shitfest of a team?

I think it means we are going part time, not signing Goodwillie. 

It says elsewhere in the statement that promotion this year or next is needed to avoid that scenario so seems unlikely.

I know that, but it’s not like a light switch, by part time, I mean Hybrid, might start to see part time signing next season,

I really don’t think that would be deemed unpopular. They’ve already stated we need to get promoted this season or next to remain full time

Rennie and Miller are here not because they love Falkirk FC, it's because they see us as a stepping stone to bigger things. They're professionals who want to manage at as high a level as possible. Step one in that process is get us promoted as quickly as possible. To do that they need to get the best players they can and they will not give a flying f**k about any off-pitch baggage. In 3 years time, when they've both moved on they won't give a toss that a few hundred fans were offended by Goodwillie. However, if they don't get the best players they can for non-football reasons and they fail to get us promoted, they'll constantly wonder "what if". 

 

Signing Goodwillie and offending fans won't affect their careers in the slightest.

Not signing him could be a threat to their futures.

My dad took me and my brother to Brockville. I have taken my kids to TFS. 

We are a family club! 

We could well be.

What I objected to was the club exploiting this when trying to sell season tickets (The Falkirk Family....yuk ) whilst treating the fan base with utter contempt at the same time.   

Anyway moving on.

Look, I completely agree that dealers/traffickers are frankly c***s of the lowest order.

But we must, I think, allow people to recognise their errors and make amends as best they can. Otherwise you're back in some medieval hell.

We are already there, it's called League One.

I actually think you’re spot on here. I really don’t think that comment on the statement could mean anything other than DGW signing

All the names mentioned, Lafferty or Cummings or Griffiths would all be fantastic signings to be honest despite having chequered pasts but I think all 3 are probably out of reach for us at the minute while we languish in this division.

Cummings and Griffiths are overweight and in terminal decline.  

All 3 would expect wages far in excess of what they'd bring to the team.  Whoever we sign needs to be hungry and willing to run themselves into the ground for 90mins, not on the way out and looking for an easy ride.

If the statement didn't mean Goodwillie then it would be the easiest thing in the world to set the record straight.

Don’t think I agree with that, all have ability that would see them stick out like a sore thumb in this division. Goodwillie manages to score 20 plus goals season in season out for very a poor Clyde team despite being obviously overweight.

Conor Sammon was also supposed to stick out like a sore thumb (in a good way)

Obviously overweight? Please elaborate

Sammon wasn’t quite at the same level as these guys, if you look at his record bar one good season at Kilmarnock that got him his move he was consistently a striker who didn’t score goals.
