The Falkirk FC Thread


Recommended Posts

I feel that our defensive set up at the start of games leads us to looking shaky until we get a foothold in games. There is a nervousness about our style of playing out from the back and we invite pressure onto ourselves. The defence should be clearing our lines early doors and cut out the fannying about at the back.

Heard last night from a player's close relative that Sheerin took Dowds into his office and told him he was fifth place striker and should get a loan club. That the team were very far from convinced that Ruth was capable of leading the line and that while everyone liked PS they had far from stellar confidence in his tactics. 

Nothing world shattering there but everyone seems to be on board with RenKen and there's a more positive air to the dressing room.

Dowds could have scored in the first minute, that would have set the tone. Seemed to be forgotten by some focusing on the negatives as usual. Yes, we were poor and could have conceded in the first half, but they didn't score did they  and we scored 3 in the second half, some cant even find a positive in that. There's progress, no doubt, 6 new signings and with Dowds and Mutch back in the team has changed drastically . Rennie has got rid of some dross and replaced with better., bonding the team now is essential. We need to show steady progress now now on in. We're on the right track imo. Well done to those who took the time and effort to go last night, we do have some good and dedicated fans who support the team more than a forum.

100%. The sprinkling of naysayers on here (and elsewhere) have their own agenda, to criticise and patronise the recent changes at the club, thinking we’re all half asleep and don’t see the flurry of activity from new and long dormant accounts. If MR and KM are struggling it’s shaking off the damage done by the the previous incumbents appalling signings, culture and judgement. This is a major rebuild and will take more than one window to fix. Dowds is a perfect example, chased from the club without being given a chance and ridiculed at the Q&A. Six goals in seven games isn’t it.

I’ve had my doubts as most of us probably have but the 2nd half last night was the first real signs for me that things are starting to click. 

The biggest positive for me were McKay looked half decent although still loads to prove and Hetherington who looked quite tidy when he came on so hopefully a new lease of life for him. 
 

What a difference it makes having loads of positives to talk about!

A message to BAIRNforLife contributors
 
BAIRNforLife’s AGM in November 2021 confirmed an agreement that would see its contributors gain concurrent membership of the Falkirk Supporters’ Society, unless any individual chose to opt-out, as part of a wider agreement to unite Falkirk fans’ voices.
 
BAIRNforLife has not yet been able to conclude this element, which includes asking all its contributors whether or not they agree to their data being passed to FSS so we can include on our membership database.
 
This means that BAIRNforLife contributors, who would otherwise have expected their FSS membership to flow automatically, would be unable to participate in the forthcoming FSS elections as they won’t be members by the 11 February deadline.
 
If you wish to have a say in the election of a new committee and for the fans’ director you can join here:
before 11th February at midnight.
 
For more information on the elections, see here:

Posted this already but we didn’t start slowly last night.

We we’re on the front foot from the kick off and could have had a couple of very early goals.

We certainly didn’t maintain the early pressure for long and became rather passive and disorganised after ten minutes or so.

It was the same at Montrose when nesbitt missed that sitter. QP done it to us and we looked rattled. If we start converting the very early on chances it will make a huge difference.

Jacobs put in the only CM/CDM performance worthy of the name that I’ve seen from us in about 2 years 

Sometimes it feels like you're watching a team with two of him in it. He gets through an incredible amount of work and his use of the ball is normally terrific. I don't know the make up of your dressing room, but I wouldn't be surprised if he was one of the most respected voices in there already. 

I mentioned Kabia earlier; I hesitate to use the phrase, but it seems to me like it could be "peak Falkirk" to shift Kabia about and upset his rhythm just as he's beginning to hit his straps, in order to shoehorn in the talented but lazy waster that is Leigh Griffiths.

Peak Rennie is not peak Falkirk

Having a look through the premiership squads for midfielders but at this stage the options are very limited. 

Chris Mochrie
Archie Meekison
Finlay Pollock

Not seen anything of Meekison but Dundee United have an abundance of centre midfielders and so I reckon they'll look to get one or two out on loan. Pollock done well for Hearts in the league cup at the start of this season and is just coming back from a broken foot. 

Was expecting so see more than a 16 year old in from the Rangers given King Kenny's connections but the fact they have a colts team in the lowland league will be restricting things. Who ever thought that was a good idea?

One game does not change anything as we should all know by now.  People were creaming themselves after the Dumbarton result only for us to be abject after that . Mackay and mcguffie have been dire all season so it's going to take far more than one game to change that. No point in winning last night then getting scudded off cove next.

What are BFL playing at? There’s what, 150 + people who could vote for the future direction of the club and they’re mucking about. As I stated last week I don’t support these prizes anyway. The cash prizes are 9000 shares a year that could go into FSS and increase our stake in the club. Time for a rethink in my opinion
