I think one of the many things I liked about houston, and other good managers is that when we didn't play well he said so, he was honest with the fans, said the players weren't doing their job and perhaps most important he knew exactly what was wrong and told us how he would fix it. I'm fed up being treated like a child with these questions and mainly the answers

His downfall began in summer 2016 when he didn't fix it. That was the problem.

On the basis that Airdrie don't go up, I'd go balls out for Ian Murray. 

You'd have got him a year ago, no doubt about it, but a combination of Falkirk's almost cartoonish level of club mess and the fact that he's been given complete freedom now at Airdrie and has been unshackled from any DOF/BOD interference in his team, signings and selections makes me think that it's a non starter. You'd have to put together a ridiculous financial package and I think even then it's unlikely.

The Lewis questions and Rennie answers would give the Russians a run for their money. Incredible post match interview. 

What was his first question? Didn’t get a chance to watch it

no manager gets it right all the time. he got it right far far more than wrong. my point is he looks like guardiola compared to rennie and sheerin

I'm not going to argue with that, but he spotted what we all knew was needed, and then signally failed to do so.

So we got weaker over the following 18 months, and he got the boot.

Was he not promised more money and then in actual fact his budget was cut?

Things need to get moving this weekend. Get rid of Rennie and Miller this weekend and at least lift the mood knowing they are away. 
 

Yes we keep hearing how poor the players are but f**k me they haven’t been helped by how clueless the management have been this season. The last 4 or 5 years have been dreadful but this is easily the worst things have been. I just hope the new board have the skills needed to get us out of this!

It’s the way the words “frustrating” and “disappointing” get trotted out so easily. He says it but it no way whatsoever does it come across that way. Quite passive in fact. Get him to f**k!

Aye. 

Frustrated that they conceded goals not that they lost. Everything wrong with their attitude summed up in one sentence (as mentioned, not his). 

Only Mutch recently has looked liked he's had his fill of his own teammates BS but hasn't helped he's had a few 'mares since then. 

His body language during the game looks like he'd rather be anywhere else than Falkirk.

Lewis Connolly accepting that only getting scudded 2-0 was an improvement on previous weeks is a feeling that’s voiced by a wider fan base which is extremely concerning, as it shows just how far we have fallen and continue to fall. 

Hold yer hands up Rennie and apologise, you came here with the minimum target of achieving the play offs and you haven’t even been pipped to the post. It’s now impossible with 3 games still to go. 

I said a while back that we were beyond fixing, shockingly BPM didn’t take too well to that. But I’ll stand by that statement if Rennie stays on next season.

Houston was a very good player and manager for us. He was 150% committed to the cause too. Went toe to toe with Hearts, Rangers and Hibs and didn’t give a f**k about their reputations. I loved the guy.

I have to be honest and say that in the current financial climate the thought of stumping up £250 for a ST if Rennie is still in charge is going to take some serious thought, especially if he is saddled with a large amount of the current squad.

Yes so did I, as player and manager too. I am sticking with the other comment though.

It’s been a hard start for those now involved in running the club, and I appreciate that, and we all know the standard of players we have are simply not good enough. However there should be no doubt we can’t take the chance in keeping Rennie on beyond the end of the season, He just doesn’t give me any confidence he could make an improvement irrespective of who he finds or signs. I don’t think there’s a hope in hell there being a quick fix for the shit we are in.

5 home wins from 17 games, 18 points from 51 at home, is an utter disgrace. 

Finally I see they are having an awards night. God help us, have they no shame, handing out awards and back slapping when we are the laughing stock of Scottish Football

He wouldn't have any dof/ bod interference with us either mind you. If Airdrie stay down who knows . Might be better options than us in for him though.

Na f**k this. I’ve just watched 2 interviews involving a Falkirk fan, the manager and a player. 
McGuffie thinks we played well?? We did absolutely f**k all. I’m sorry “twinkle toes” but that performance will never be acceptable. 
Rennie saw lots to build on?? I saw f**k all and the fact he is even talking about next season is terrifying. 
Lewis basically accepting a 2 nil defeat as a good result?? What is the fucking point.

A club full of fucking losers. Clear the lot.

Yeah we’ve just been resigned to not even making the playoffs in league 1 for a second year running and that interview sounded more like we’d just missed out on top 6 in the SPL and it was just a case of adding a few bits and pieces here and there.

There was absolutely nothing wrong with the appointment of Paul Hartley. It was absolutely the right appointment at the time and he had a great record for us from January onwards in his first season.

That’s an incredibly generous assessment of Paul Hartley’s contribution. He benefited massively from Brechin being in the league. We were in 8th place when he came in and we finished the season in 8th place.

He came in, got nothing at all out of a squad that shouldn’t have been where it was.  He got a few decent results post January (the 6-1 win against Dundee United most notably, but that was an aberration).  But to say he had a ‘great record’ is just nonsense.
