I'd be interested to know why we appointed someone who was previously the assistant coach at the notre dame ladies college team, had never worked in scotland before and had no knowledge of the scottish game, the scottish transfer market and especially L1 over Rice?

Why don’t you go Monday night and ask the Board yourself and see what they tell you?

In that’s the case we have even bigger issues than I thought. Why on earth would directors be outsourcing such a key decision to others (including Holt)?

I suppose it does allow the blame to be placed on others.

Holt was DOF. He would have to be part of that process in his role at the time.

Because he was a total fucking charlatan who was booted weeks later. Unless his removal simply came out of nowhere and wasn't planned in advance?

It was an interesting appointment and one I thought was worth it at the time. At the end of the day it was a risk that hasn’t worked out and the 6 month deal was a very good decision now. Kudos to them for trying something different. Parting ways now would the sensible decision though!

You don’t need to tell me that but in his role they would have to involve him.

Also someone who managed in the MLS far above the level we're at. You can argue whether Rennie should be kept on or not but in a week 91000 watched a women's game this patronising approach to the woman's game is just embarrassing.

Was it interesting though? Looked pretty shite from the get go. Someone essentially out of the game having slipped so far down the pole, he was a coach at a women's college team.

I get that he wasn't Largs Mafia which is the only thing on his favour but other than that it looked a massive gamble for a club even of our size.

More the kind of thing you'd expect from a Spartans or Stirling University.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again - empty the lot. The players are a disgrace and the manager is miles off it. End this failed experiment at the earliest possible opportunity. 

But it will take money to empty the lot and there will be not a lot of it about next season. We may not be able to do that and fund many signings if any of the quality we require that if they would come.

The board must know what is going to happen so tell us now.

All this conjecture just erodes further the little goodwill that is left with the support

I have no doubt that women’s football is developing, but with all due respect Notre Dame ladies college are hardly in the upper echelons of women’s football.

Suppose when your actual rivals have completly dominated you for 140+ years you'll jump at any opportunity to laugh at somebody eh?

 

Crack on wee man.

College football isn't really understood over here. This isn't as if we are talking about the Stirling University Ladies team equivalent over here. College football is  very important thing in the US.

Rennie's cv couldn't be ignored initially. It just hasn't worked out.

Bless - though I suppose your derby bragging rights over *checks notes* Stenhousemuir is all you've got left to cling on to. 

Fun fact: Falkirk have now lost 19 of their last 38 league matches.

A 50% loss rate.

In the seaside leagues.

As a full-time, professional football club.

I know it will take money but there is no other option. It’s quite simple, the lot of them need to go

Because it was only a matter of time before he was emptied. Apparently…

He was in a job. In a structure put together by the previous Board. You can’t exclude him even if you were planning to empty him as the club could get done for constructive dismissal and excluding him could go against you.
