We couldn't get the right players in under Holt so we sacked him. If we can't get the right players in with the new strategy then we are no better off. We need players. We need to get them by hook or by crook. Managers who get them in succeed those that don't get fired that's modern day football I'm afraid.

Agreed, recruitment is key. 

I’m happy to wait for the right signings, if they come, but the worry is now seeing the likes of Reynolds sign for Cove and  Gardyne to Montrose.

Did say Gardybe wasn’t someone I think we needed but if he’s also a player that can add a lot of quality to a squad. 
 

Still time to go yet but starting to get a little bit worried as there is little news coming our way.

You bring in noone better than Mackay or hall and by the time you get to season ticket sales day your going to struggle to get any poor sod to part with their money. It's imperative the fans see us moving in the right direction between now and June. Scraping 3rd or 4th bottom won't sell season tickets.

I don’t disagree and like every single fan we want to make the play offs, however I’m sickened to the pit of my stomach with the absolute mediocre shite we’ve suffered.

There’s still a bit of time so really hoping Rennie/Miller get lucky. I use the word lucky as I don’t know how you would sell the club to anyone.

There's a decent amount of cash in the pot and the new manager and bod should be selling their plans for the club to any player we're looking at.  If Arbroath had sat 3 or 4 years ago and though whose going to want to sign for us we're a part time team with gates of a few hundred in a ramshackle stadium which freezes your balls off and we've little chance of going further then they wouldn't now been top of the bloody championship.

I'd love to know what happened to the players Rennie told us were lined up to join by Holt and sheerin  when he was first asked about new signings. Were they just shite or did we simply fail once again to persuade them to sign.  Probably never know.

We may as well just accept failure give up then aye?  Just totter along in mid table or lower in league one because how could we ever expect a club like Falkirk to be able to recruit players good enough to come fourth or above in league one?  You can have the best coach in the world but if he can't identify and persuade the right calibre of player to join your team then it won't matter a jot.  We've had manager after manager and a dof that couldn't get the right players in to give us a decent football team and until that changes we aren't going anywhere.  ACH well we tried doesn't really cut it. It's a results business and the manager will be measured on the players he brings in to get us the results we need to get into the playoffs. 

 

Try answering my questions.

Or did Rennie and Miller decide they were no good. We’ll never know

Bid rejected for a rapist. Lost out on Reynolds to Cove. Window going well.

I know there is time left in the window so I’m not going to start wetting my pants but the manager said there would be players in this week. If that doesn’t happen then alarm bells will be ringing. Here’s hoping for tomorrow.

The alarm bells will be ringing if we still have McKay and Hall at the end of the window as a starting pair, everyone keeps yapping about the playoffs if the recruitment is pants it'll be the ones at the bottom of the table.

Who even said we were in for Reynolds?
 

Can’t believe we lost out on Wood to Newcastle ffs! 🤔

Look at our recruitment in the previous 2 windows under Holt. I can pretty much guarantee the players they had lined up were absolutely ganting.

Would’ve been some young jobber Sheerin knew from Aberdeen, some other random ringer no getting a game from some other team stinking out their division and a massive jobber like Robbie Muirhead.

Surely not concerned that we didn’t sign more players targeted by Holt and Sheerin?

We are all frustrated at the lack of signing activity but some of the comments on here are spectacularly over the top.

Surely we are the very last club that should be throwing contracts around like confetti!

I’d much rather have two or three signings or loans that would strengthen the team than yet more dross to fill the bench.

We have what should be a very winnable game on Saturday which gives a wee bit of breathing space to get the necessary signings in before the end of the month.

Chill out people!

Does anyone else find Rennie massively uninspiring?

Nah there’s not a chance we’ll finish below Dumbarton and East Fife even if we do have to play they 2 goons regularly for the rest of the season.

Well given the last lot that Holt found made Hartleys duds seem like world beaters he's actually managed to assemble a worse team.  Has his laddie been released ?

Do you genuinely believe we weren’t or are you looking for some comfort?

Also 1/10 for the shite patter about Woods
