I've just checked TransferMarket and, according to them, Nesbitt is out of contract this May, not next. If that is accurate I'm pretty sure he won't be offered a new contract (unless any new manager really rates him) and I would certainly want to use his wage in other areas. If it's not accurate then, assuming we couldn't afford to pay off everyone that's under contract, I would keep him as back-up. This was the point that I was trying to make in the first place.

Exactly. I think the whole time we’ve been down here you’ve owned us and you’ve looked roughly the same team each time. Maybe a quality addition or 2 this year to take you to that next level. 

I do not believe that Falkirk fans should be willing to accept 5th/6th in the league, 21 points off second place. 

I don’t think ANY manager can come in and get us fighting for 1st next season. But properly in the playoff mix, with the odd actual result against someone that isn’t Dumbarton or East Fife, would keep most fans happy, after the utter shit we’ve been served up from 2 awful coaches 

Eh, naw.

P.S. No offence but I gave you a greenie by mistake, sorry.

Thanks for that. Transfer market talking pish then!

I would look to be keeping him then rather than trying to find the money to pay him off. Might be able to offload him on loan though I suppose.

Clarity is required and soon. It comes down to money because that will drive the key decisions that will all be linked that decides the future  direction and even the existence of the club.

Finance = Full time/Hybrid/Part time =  Quality of player that will sign = Quality of manager that will be attracted = Level we complete at. 

If the fans are going to put money into the club and buy season tickets in what will be a financially challenging time for all its only fair to be upfront and honest and tell it as it is.

 

That will certainly be a first. (Current BOD excluded)

As said even the most loyal supporters have just about had their fill. Last Saturdays display was a despicable show of players that couldn’t give two Fcks. I’d drop the lot for the last five games and play one of the youth teams.

Yeah that's a great idea.

The young lads losing 13-0 will be superb for their development, and the fine from the SPFL will help us too.

Give me strength.

You must be happy to watch the current abhorrent displays.

Was listening to Super Scoreboard earlier and a Kilmarnock fan was talking about the impact of McInnes. Said he’s basically taken Wright’s players and brought some consistent performances with players such as Alston and Stephen McGinn now looking like new signings. 

 

Your first mistake of course was listening to "Super" Scoreboard. And while McInnes has got them playing a bit better, the fact they are top of the league now and likely to win the Championship is down to two things - signing Kyle Lafferty and Abroath running out of steam. They aren't playing any better football, in fact it's pretty dull and basic and they grinding out results rather than blowing teams away. And had Arbroath been able to keep their run going then they'd still be top - as it is they have started drawing games they previously would have won and so Killie haven't really had to do anything other than keep plodding along before they eventually caught up.

There's a lot of chat about us going for Wright too, assuming MR disappears in the summer.

He was a shambles at Kilmarnock, in a league they should have cantered to. Sounds familiar...

FFS. Obviously not.

But you simply can't chuck in a bunch of U18/16 players, man. I hope you weren't being serious...

It would be 13-0 at half time.

It’s about time some on here realised we have development teams in name only.

Some folk on here can be wildly unrealistic. From thinking we can just pop down to the shops to get a couple of good midfielders to sacking all of the players because they're not good enough. You really couldn't make some of it up!

A friends lad who was in the new FFC pro-youth setup was invited to a meeting last week where the CEO jamie swinney told them they were folding their pro-youth as they had no money in the budget to continue with it. is this just some age groups or is it the whole pro-youth setup? He's gutted after sepending 5 months training where they were led to beleive that they would be getting a place in the scottish eleite youth setup.

From what I understand there is only 1 pro-youth team, which is effectively the best players from Gairdoch and Syngenta + a couple others. 

Interesting you said they were told next year they were joining an elite academy setup. I didn't think the players were ever deemed strong enough to be at that level. Sounds like promises were made that would never be fulfilled.

Thing is, you can’t say Arbroath are running out of steam, and had Arbroath kept their run going, they’d still be top. That’s pretty pointless, as you can then apply that to any club that has done well for a while. Of course if they kept on winning, they’d still be top just like Sheerin if he had kept that three wins on the bounce going, we would already be champions.

The Killie I saw on the telly at Somerset Park certainly weren’t plodding along. They were 3 up after less than 20 minutes. For us (with a couple of exceptions)we need 2 games or more to score three goals. I would take their kind of plodding any day of the week…….but above all else, McInnes has gotten a response from the players……..something MR cannot claim in any way shape or form. If nothing else, I am just glad he has stopped offering up bogus stats that say he is doing ok, because in the cold light of day, whatever his plan is, it’s simply not working.

In the case of Narey’s Toepoker above, his stats are wrong too. MR has not been in charge for 15 games…..it’s  14 games. Game 17 of this season saw Danny Grainger in charge (the 0-3 defeat to Cove). It makes no difference in terms of points, but it does in terms of accuracy.

If any of our current youth teams play a single game for the first team I'll be astounded. 

There are better kids playing at Sunnyside/Vicky Park/Dawson Park/Gairdoch Park every Saturday and Sunday morning.

thanks for help. interetsed to know if it was just one age group or the whole lot but from what you said it sounds like it was just one age group in the pro-youth

Plus the guy underneath hasn't realised that Rennie is out of contract in a month or two.
