Griff celebrating the goal live on TV. We are meant to have an alliance with rangers and one of our players is doing this???

Even written in jest as I assume this was it’s really not a great post

Came across this again today. As much as we’re (hopefully) at our lowest, this type of atmosphere, crowd and occasion should strive every single person connected with the club to get back to nights like these. If and when that time comes again, we’ll all appreciate it all the more I’m sure.

I'm in that video, just a couple of seats along from them. I've got a video as well from my seat!

It’s a great video I’m gutted I never got any from that night! I was too busy living in the moment 🤣. That night and the moment Grant scored in the Cup final will live with me forever.

We’ve got an alliance with SEVCO? WTF, I missed that. After 50 years of supporting FFC, if true, I’d be done.

It was just one of the standard wind-up posts that I presume are meant to be funny on the COYB FB page.

Even if Miller does well in his remaining time, what he has to offer is not what we need at this particular time.

We need an experienced manager who has been ‘round the blocks ‘ in this league.

The names already mentioned of McGlynn and Murray are what we require and wouldn’t be all that expensive.

I’ve no idea at Falkirks finances but are you likely to have the biggest budget next season?

Did Holt resign or was he paid off?

Has Kenny Miller played games or just been doing coaching

No, Kelty will probably have a bigger budget as will at least one of the teams who come down.

Paid off

Just coaching.

OTT looking back considering the job wasn’t complete.

I watched the game in Tenerife and when Bob scored I ran about the hotel reception like a man possessed.

Agreed, I remember thinking it was a bit  cringy.
In recent times we have to celebrate even small success. We deserve it after all the doom and gloom we have suffered over last 5 seasons. I would cheer wildly if we could even beat a full time team as it has been so long

In actual fact, it might be a good thing to go into next season as one of the underdogs. Cove gone, but replaced by QotS, and if one of the others goes up, Ayr United might well be the ones to come down.

Add in Kelty, so you might have them, Montrose, QP, QotS and Ayr all fancied ahead of us (I am of course, presuming Airdrie are promoted).

Going into the season as the sixth best prospect might be no bad thing. A bit of realism, and (we hope) a place to improve from.

Beating a full time team in a proper competitive match? We cannot do that this season……all chances have now gone.

The last time we did it wasn’t the 3-2 win over RC in 2019……that wasn’t a competitive match as RC had already won the league. The last time we beat a full time side in a truly competitive match was a one goal victory of DA in April 2019………..over three years ago. A post war record (of shame) for a full time side.

interestingly after I watched the rennie interview a houstie popper up on my YouTube feed immediately after it.  I thought I'd watch it to compare the styles.

it was after a defeat to dunfermline where we had gone down to 9 men. houstie was honest and angry. said there were a lot of his players who talk a good game, soft as putty, days off would be cancelled, videos would be watched till they get it right.

fed up with the we trained well all week before games and deluded we played well after defeats, I juries etc. give me 

Kelty will not have a bigger budget. Queen's Park will be the only team with a bigger budget, should Dunfermline stay up.

Early warnings from the BOD about what we can probably expect for the new season budget.
If (and it’s a huge if) we can sustain STs numbers and somehow release/punt/bin many of the charlatans without to much cost, I wouldn’t expect to much reduction in budget, but the reality will probably be a reduced budget. Can anyone confirm if Totts is now back in some capacity?

Kelty the football club won’t have a bigger budget but I’d bet any money the company that’s ‘employing’ the Kelty players and has them on their payroll will.
