How about comparing it to Miller and McCracken who were in a similar situation? They got 22 points from their first 10 games in charge. 
 
Rennie was hired for his ability to turn things around quickly and I think 10 games is plenty to judge him. Hopefully things will turn around but that won’t change the fact that it’s been a poor start and that bringing in an ex international striker may prove to be the difference between him and Sheerin. 
Rennie has the job of polishing the turd he was left with plus the odds and sods that were available during the window. A job no-one would relish

Never said it was easy but he was chosen for his ability to perform that task and so far being outperformed by M and M, who had an equal set of turds to polish. If we are being honest then I think everyone would have hoped for better than 14 points out of his first 30.

Let’s not over complicate this with points per quarter etc. The facts are we are still slightly better than the pish below us and worse than the pish above us.

We may well improve in the last quarter of the season and I’m sure we all hope that happens but anyone suggesting there has been any sort of improvement up until now clearly have pals in the boardroom cos there is nothing to back that up  

Let’s see what the last quarter brings 🤞🏼

The way we were headed it would have been 4 points from 30. We had dropped off the cliff very quickly

Not entirely true. As I said before, Sheerin’s last 5 games he got 7 points as opposed to Rennie’s last 5 of 8. If not for 2 last minute goals then that would have been 6 from his last 5. We’ve remained in decline.

So we’re three points adrift of QP, add another point for GD. For me with nine to play games to go, QP can only throw this away.?

Feels like it although QP are no great team either. Always said a team that went on a run in this league would pull away. Unfortunately the best we’ve managed is 3 wins in a row and that was under Sheerin with Rennie still looking to achieve 2 wins in a row, so it’s not looking great.

Fellow Falkirk fans and posters,

Just woke up to the news that the rapist has re-signed for Clyde.

No matter how desperate we are for points and want to follow the club through thick and thin, please, don't go to Broadwood on Saturday. We would look like a bunch of hypocrites if we go.

That seems a bit extreme.
We need to gain one point on QP between now and the final game of the season then we play QP on the final day for the final play off place.
So it’s hardly nothing to play for even if we don’t look capable of improvement….

This league has three slightly better than absolute pish teams and 7 totally pish teams of which we are in the latter Anything can and will happen

That's the real frustrating part. Queen's aren't brilliant and will drop points. A better window again and 4th would have been comfortably achievable and then with some decent form going into the playoffs who knows. However, we can't even beat Peterhead and the idea of us hitting a real run of form is as far away as it was before we signed 6 new players.  Probably have the ignominy of the rapist putting our season to bed this weekend knowing us.

This games got this piece of shites name written all over it. There’s got to be a vast improvement on last week’s showing (shitefest for 80mins) if we’ve got any aspirations of this play off.

I'm still sitting on the fence re Rennie. He has brought in some players better than what we had and shipped others out.  I'm not convinced about ATS or Jacobs though.

Speaking to one of the directors last week, the conversation alluded to the fact that Rennie knows (but can't publicly admit) our midfield has been rank rotten, but has been unable to get the players he identified for this problem area into the club. One player in particular was thought to be "in the door" but his parent club refused the move at the last minute (Liam Craig???)

 Still hopeful that we get 4th place but time is running out.

Heard this as well.

Quite like Jacobs though he had a poor game on Saturday.

Thing is, what is “form” for us? Is it beating Dumbarton 6-2 with the defensive frailties still very much in play, but not enough to do down the work of the forwards that day.

Is it the second half performance v Alloa where things were turned around dramatically after an eye wateringly bad first half?
 

Or is good form a sudden epiphany amongst those with defensive duties such that they no longer are collectively shambolic a la Keystone Cops. I really don’t know what good form looks like as we have had is a few great moments in a sea of turgid guff.

I still think we could be ok if we were defensively organised, but we are not. Just look at the video clips of this season. We have decent numbers back, but they are just numbers. No-one seems to be sure of where they should be, and what their job actually is……particularly the wing backs and defensive mid.

More or less agree  (apart from ATS who is just completely shite)

Next four games seal our fate, contenders for fourth or season ends with five games to go and attendances hovering around 1500 at best.

Just put us out our misery imo.

Even if we sneak 4th there's nothing to suggest this team can overcome a Championship side then Aridrie/Montrose.
