Griffith's is not the problem here.

His attitude has been spot on but ultimately we aren't stumping up a wedge for that. 

Any player - regardless of wage - that should be the minimum.

You didn’t pay him £1500 a week for him to have a great attitude though. He was brought in to score a shit load of goals and save your season.

He’s clearly not capable of that, even in the seaside leagues.

That first goal yesterday was so utterly predictable.

Swarms of Falkirk defenders standing around our penalty box doing nothing, the opposition player gets away a pretty feeble shot, Mutch goes down in instalments and game over.

Deja vu all over again…

I dunno. If he was in Airdrie's side he'd be scoring regularly I think. 

We're just so bad it's not possible. Definitely not worth the money though.. you are right there. He's probably done in the game now..unless he wants to play for a quarter of what he's on which is unlikely. No one will give him a 4 figure salary any more

I don't think he's finished but he can't do it all on his own.

I expected more but this team has given him absolutely nothing. The fact he's now on corners says it all.

His off-field antics and expected wage should have made the signing a total non-starter. A truly desperate move that has completely backfired.

The person or persons who gave the contract the green light should be chased out of the club.

He's 5'6" and we're lumping high balls up at him ffs.

Given the red dot, you obviously disagree Marshy. Are you saying he's not 5'6" or we don't lump high balls up at him?

I very rarely watch Falkirk these days which is why I never comment on the players , I just comment on the  BOD and their many many mistakes over the years.

I did watch the last 2 games on stream and have to say I can't believe the massive drop in quality even since a couple of seasons ago.

Losing to Montrose 0-3 at home with a whimper seems to me an insult to the club and the many great players over the years, I would never have thought we'd sink so low. No disrespect to Montrose but before I left the UK to come to Oz I watched us in a Scottish Cup Semi Final boss Hibs (at least for the first half).        

How has this happened.

Oh yeah....I hate Craig Campbell, Margaret Lang & Gary Deans. They are why we are where we are, not down to anyone on the current BOD.

Their appointment of Rennie was far worse. A player can only do so much damage.. a manager this bad untold damage .

I have little confidence the new board will properly recruit the next manager having royally fucked up this appointment.

The only good thing they've achieved so far is binning Holt.

Any truth in the rumours that Sam mcgiverns resigned?

Good luck to the guy if he has, was an odd appointment at the time seeing as he was going from healthcare to generating income, but no doubt he would have given it his best shot.

The stadium advertising is a completely false impression. So much "free" advertising for businesses who haven't renewed or no longer exist. 

It's clearly a hard sell and gotten harder.

I really hope we go part time next season. I think that's the right solution as a reset. 

The playing quality won't reduce and we'll avoid the Jaime Wilson 'I'm a footballer' Ralph Wiggum type stupidity .

I don't want any of these sleeve tattoo types 'training' for a couple of hours then heading to the bookies or PlayStation.

Train in the evenings..pay good PT money and hire a manager used to working with PT players. Ideally with some contacts who can bring in guys short term who are happy to supplement the income they already have.

I don't think stating FT and paying utter shit with no other job 500 quid a week is really going to cut it.

You maybe go hybrid with 3 or 4 FT players - experienced pros who you pay nearer 1000 a week to. Guys used to this league who are winners.

It was, I was strongly against it from the start and was probably the reason I got sucked back into this site 😂, but they can make it right as thankfully hes only here until the summer, just got to hope that they do.

He should only be here to this afternoon. 

And in their defence they did have to move quickly. They went about it all wrong and it was a ludicrous decision, but as you say they have several months to do it properly now.

There's no excuse for another bad appointment without due diligence.

There's probably several hundred K of income riding on the appointment in terms of season tickets and walk ups next season.

I don't think we'll sack Rennie now when it will be seen as a pointless sacking by the board. Nothing to play for, suspect they will opt to stomach the next handful of games and put out a joint statement saying that's the contract up thanks and goodbye, we now welcome applications

Yeah, through gritted teeth I can kindof see that being the best thing.

It's just got to be difficult being a dead man walking for a few more weeks knowing you're going to be hunting some low level coaching jobs in America again on the side.

That cone planter role at Lower Arkansas Methodist awaits.

Not as difficult as trying to get folk through the gate. Cove will absolutely fucking batter us. Thats got another 5 or 6 goal thumping wrote all over it. Its basically the Partick game from last season, except Cove are in a tighter fight and will be even more up for it.

That should signal to the fans that the season has effectively ended and attendance at any further games is unnecessary. 

I said yesterday that based on the game having no manager has no material effect so he should be dispensed with. 

Put him on gardening leave if we're not renewing.

12 months from now we should have a team capable of a decent attempt at the play offs, that's all we ask.

Agreed. I'm definitely not in the terminal spiral camp. 

We just keep appointing bad managers. It's pretty simple once you get that one appointment right..

A good manager should easily have us 3rd next season with a competent side. That's acceptable I think.
