He was a 17yo left back in a shite side m8.

We're going around in circles here now. Lets just see how he gets on.

He was 18 when he left and we didn't win a league game with him starting that season, then we took him out and win two on the bounce.

Lucky omen too for Toronto in similar manner.....

Does anyone know where I can get a Falkirk flag. My sons team, Falkirk 2008 blues, are playing in the West Lothian Divisional Cup final on Friday night, and we are trying get a flag or 2 so we can show our support. 

This is on EBay - might intimidate your opponents !!

Wishful thinking but if we went on an absolutely class run no reason as to why we couldn’t get second. Need Jaze and Anton to get 20 -25goals between them - look what happened last year when Thistle had a good January and brought in players like tiffoney.

I actually think Rennie might be accepting of going into the Montrose game with Dowds, Kaiba and Watson as his anchor points for now. Sure, he will be looking for more, but that “score one goal more, concede one goal less” mantra (if it works out that way) might be enough to turn those 2-3 and 1-2 defeats into 3-2 and 2-1 wins.

You just hope if Watson is partnered with either of them he isn't dragged down to their level quickly. Watson solid enough as he is isn't blessed with pace to cover their f**k ups. 

Watching you guys against us last week, your  problems are more  midfield than defence. Ok admit we are powder puff upfront so no real challenge for the defence but your midfield was as bad as ours- no creativity, no energy, side ways  or backward passes- cant see you winning against the top half with that midfield- you must be looking to add players in that department- your forwards now a threat but only limited threat if they don't get the ball early - other than 40 yard cross field passes…

Up until it went south when we got rid of Houston we were never really a defensive team, we always tried to attack as we more or less always has a frontline with some firepower but since Housties departure we haven't had a manager who had a good eye for a player Hartley with his Jan window was about it other than that the rest has been dross.

Finishing 2nd or 4th basically makes not a jot of difference in this playoff system. Would still need to beat two of 2nd bottom champ, 3rd or 4th in League 1 over 2 legs. Basically zero incentive to finish 2nd over 4th.

Right
Later today we must sign an experienced defensive midfield thug. Defence looks better with Watson and Dixon being in there. Attack with Dowds and Kabia looks good. Now the midfield. we are too lightweight and lack leadership. If not Craig then someone with dig and command required Make it happen.

I’ve no doubt there’s at least two maybe three to come in. A bit more reassured that Rennie Is identifying the correct pedigree we require, and stopped the scandalous ritual of signing mediocre shite/incumbents. My slight concern and previously posted we’re waiting on traffic moving at the top end to conclude ours…..still a few days 😉

People keep quoting ' look what Partick done ' going on that run to win the league. It was only made possible by a catastrophic collapse by the team at the top...who happened to be us.

Doubt a fall of that magnitude has happened before or will again. Disastrous stuff from bod, through Holt, the management team and certain players. Have to be thankful we are rid of the vast majority of them.

Just got to hope Hartley & "Mitch" get back in contact again

It was "Morton-esque" in feel. Need to check the stats for that, but I fear it would be too sanity-destroying to undertake.
