The Falkirk FC Thread


Recommended Posts

If you are just checking in, and are not there or haven’t bothered shelling out £12, then fair play. The pitch is of course dreadful, but it’s roughly on a par with the football. It is absolutely awful. One gift, and a neat finish by Telfer is about it.

So not 442. 4-5-1 with Griffiths up top on his own emoji23.png.

Flat 5 across the middle? Not a 5 with 3/2 or 2/3 split? 
 

tedious how people think 4-5-1 is defensive in and of itself - it’s not. 
 

Regards to the job each player has to do I would be happy to have Griffiths up front himself, on the last man and supported by 2/3 mids moving forward to support. 4-5-1 wouldn’t be the problem itself it would be a poorly operated 4-5-1 that leaves the 1 stranded that’s a problem (and mostly what we’ve see. Whenever we played it in recent years)

Not there and didn’t fancy shelling out as I had to run family to airport and would’ve missed a decent bit driving. 
 

Thanks for the update, sounds like not missing much football on this report 😂

This Falkirk team are 3 points off the playoffs.

3 points.

What a fucking disaster us and QP are. Both squads guaranteed to be on more wedge than Airdrie and Montrose combined and been comprehensively slapped about by both.

Cheers. I couldn't be arsed at all. I actually thought we would lose, still time for us to capitulate ofcourse.

What a weird game. It’s been quite shite and boring for the most part yet we really could/should have scored 4 or 5 there. It really can’t be stated enough just how good awful Dumbarton are. Their defence is comfortably worse than ours.

Hilarious defending for the first goal but Kabia done well to finish. Was a great team move for the second and whilst I thought the keeper could’ve done better at his near post was a smart finish from Telfer. Since then Bronsky had a great block from a Telfer shot that was going in, Miller missing a back post free header from a corner which he gave to a Kabia who put over the bar and ATS getting too much time to think at the back post and hit against a defender when he should’ve scored. Dumbarton look semi competent going forward but apart from a free header from a corner that Griffiths headed off the line they’ve not threatened. We do still look capable of causing ourselves problems though.

Telfer me playing really well here. He’s been given pretty much as much room as he wants and he looks threatening any time he’s got the ball. Kabia been pretty quiet I thought but any time he’s had the ball he’s been positive with it, Griffiths leading the line well very intelligent attacking play. Also think Miller is shielding the defence well but his use of the ball is terrible. Real negatives are Hetherington is still soft as shite and again McGuffie looks lost playing on the right he’s far more effective on the left imo.

I dare to dream. Mine has been flawless other than the auto camera nonsense, and ball being rendered at 2 pixels across.

Cheers to all who replied. Must be a broadband issue luckily

Whatever you do, don’t get it into your head that this somehow makes amends for last week’s crap.

The pitch is awful, but so are we. The ball is a something that just about every Falkirk player sees as something to batter into outer space as soon as it comes anywhere near them. Has to be said though, that this is the worst playing surface I have ever seen.

I agree but I certainly wouldn't want us to try and pass the ball on that pitch. Get it up and over the defence or down the channels as we are doing and thats as good as you can expect today.
