The Falkirk FC Thread


Recommended Posts

For the first time ever I couldn’t give a shiny shite about the design of the strip, more concerned with what’s occupying them. We have had some decent strips in the past five years but when they are being worn by players not fit to wear the navy blue it matters not a jot.

Don’t know if shirts become cherished after good seasons, or simply because they are just brilliant in their own right.

This season’s shirt gave me the fear from get go. I hate pin stripes, and even moreso, it looks way too close to a DAFC strip.

I want a carbon copy of the Ochilview strips (home and away), probably my favourite since the early 90s Hummell numbers.

Don’t know if this is what the rumours are about but it was a vastly reduced price that Clarke EPOS signed up to pay after the Rawlings caused Central Demolition to walk away by demanding they more than doubled what they paid every year. Ironically they ended up with Clarke on less than Central had been paying (and were happy to keep paying).

You wonder how they manage to keep up payments for all their sponsorships given their social media is filled with football sponsorships but nothing about their products and don’t seem to have a website?

Will be interesting to see if our marketing expert on the new board can find us a new shirt sponsor for next season?

The less nefarious version was that CD were happy enough to cease sponsorship, but wouldn’t leave the club high and dry. After a few years of stepping in to fill the void, Clarke ePOS appeared on the scene. How much they were prepared to pay compared to CD I do not know. Nor do I know if the end of CDs time was amicable or not……I can only hope.

Carrie Rawlins did indeed make a declaration that she was going to rule the commercial roost. Again, I have no idea if she spoke to CD or not. We might never know. 
What looks increasingly likely is that Clarke ePOS will disappear soon. No evidence of business, empty office, chip shop correspondence address, sponsors of Livingston, no accounts have ever been submitted. None of that should fill anyone with confidence. Shirt sales tend to always have the sponsor on the front. I guess the new ones won’t go on sale until a new shirt sponsor is found.

I liked the 2015 strips, plain blue and plain white with the gold writing and badge, they looked classy. If we can fill them with players who will fight for the jersey I’m pretty much prepared to accept any design.

Anyone know if the vacant managerial position has been advertised? If it hasn’t, is that pointing to KM quite possibly being a shoo-in for the job?
 

Maybe just waiting for the season to be done and dusted before advertising for applicants?

They said in the Rennie update that the process was already underway so they obviously have people they fancy for it.

Wouldn’t read too much into the position not being advertised.

Probably already a foot high pile of applications on the CEO’s desk.

95% of whom will be diddies and daydreamers.

We looked mean as hell in those, so I'd be right behind that.

As FFC 1876 says, the 15-16 ones were gorgeous too.

Although my all time favourite strip was the all white number we wore when we came back from a goal down to win the 2015 Scottish Cup 2-1.

Woefully mismanaged and misused during his entire time with us, aside from a handful of games before we blew up the entire side to accommodate The Corner Taker. 

His strengths were linking the play and dropping deep and we were largely blasting long balls up to him because he's tall. 

I can remember people panelling him for being overweight on the first day of this season. He was standing about 2 feet in front of me for most of the game and he was in great nick. 

Holt and Cones will get the blame but most fans were wanting shot of him when he went to Arbroath.

He'll do well for Thistle and I wish him well.

Good news for us as he seems to have done well particularly with Arbroath.  Was just looking at lineups for Falkirk games last few weeks and cant see him in the team - was he injured or was it because this was in the pipeline and Rennie was not happy with him moving on?

Thanks
