Lads, obviously a horror show of a season for you. The worst in living memory probably. For you, what was the single worst game/performance this season? 

We got pumped 6-0 off Queen’s Park.

So, yeah, that.

Can't wait to watch if chopped up into a hilarious "lol Falkirk!" Twitter video!

It’s the Queens Park away game and it’s not even close. It’s not just the worst Falkirk performance I’ve ever seen but genuinely the worst performance I’ve seen from a team at any level of football. The 6-0 score line actually flattering us in the end and had it been double figures would’ve been a lot more accurate of the gulf between the teams. It was a firm sign that the players had chucked it under Cones and it produced 4 or 5 of the worst individual performances that you’re ever likely to see.

With the 6-0 disgrace aside. There is maybe 1 defeat we’ve had all season that we could walk out of saying we possibly deserved something from (1-0 loss to Queens at TFS) which is quite frankly disgusting, the rest we were absolutely diabolical in, including some of our wins.

For the record, at tea time on 31st January (well after the FSS vote) we had agreed terms with Goodwillie and he was set to sign.  We were paying Clyde £40k but they wanted £50k which we wouldn't pay.  Clyde called Raith to say they can have him if they pay £50k and the rest is history.  Extremely lucky on our part. 

Griffiths a strange one.  We clearly had the money for DGW agreed and so when we were let off the hook it suddenly would have felt like we could pay similar wages for a replacement.  Now I very much doubt Rennie randomly came up with Griffiths as a signing he wanted without a discussion that suggested we now had the DGW money ready to invest in someone on similar terms.  There was also a misguided belief that LG would excite the fans and bring hundreds of extra fans through the gates for the run in.   Nobody in that decision making process (board or Rennie) had clearly paid attention to the state of LG this season.  

 

Even Deans and Holt said DGW would never play for FFC for obvious reasons.

our new board tried to sign him.

As they say in the Dragon’s Den - for that reason I’m out!

Why the f**k are we still talking about this shit? It was bad enough in January when it looked like a possibility but now a few months later when we didn’t sign him and we never will sign him it’s fucking tiresome.

Get this Goodwillie shite right in the fucking bin.
Absolutely no reason to ever mention that piece of shits name in this thread ever again. Thanks.

Well said, I'm fed up reading about something that never actually happened i.e. the signing. Whether or not the BoD seriously considered offering him a contract is irrelevant because we never signed him. Those continually harping on about Goodwillie signing that never was are either trolls or have an agenda of some sort.

The good thing about having no connection to either board means you get to call things as you see them rather than having an “agenda” either way. So here’s how I see it (FWIW)

Old regime - board full of Falkirk fans with egos who went from one disaster to another and have left the club in a complete shambles. Hopeless manager after hopeless manager and a team full of heartless imposters.

New regime - board full of Falkirk fans with egos. Hopeless manager and, despite 7 signings, we still have a team full of heartless imposters. In their short spell in charge they have also made poor decisions - DGW, Rennie and the shambolic handling of the managerial appointment. Staff leaving in numbers is also a concern that hasn’t been explained yet but I’m sure it will be and could be part of the bigger picture.

Personally, from the outside looking in, I’m disappointed by the start the new regime have made. However I do believe they will get it right and they do have a hell of a mess to tidy up behind the scenes. I’m definitely prepared to give them my backing but I will continue to callout the things I believe are wrong.

If the names I hear being considered for the managerial job are correct then I am optimistic we will make a good appointment and hopefully that is the start of our comeback.

Let’s hope it works out for all our sakes as this could be our last chance.

There are people coming on here with agendas. Not you necessarily but there are. It is obvious to anyone with any gumption. 
The Board side of the DGW story will be asked at an AGM I am sure. I 100% think some won’t believe what they say if it differs what some have been told by others. 

I’ve certainly got no agenda. Only judge what’s going on by what’s said and what isn’t said as I will do with all boards. Still heard nothing bad about the guys in there but doesn’t mean to say I think there has been a noticeable turn around in the club and that mistakes haven’t been made. 

Anyway, the DG thing came up as you asked what other mistakes they have made and I believe that is one. The narrative of that event seems to have changed a lot from we were never in for him, the board would be trusted not to sanction his signing, we were maybe in for him but it was Rennie and the board should play no part in the signing. 
 

In any case, happy to move on from that but hoping that lessons are being learned and we’ll start to notice some positive changes within the club.

The 6-0 versus QP was bad, but for me, not the worst. It was an aberration. An entire team decided to chuck it, so in that sense, it wasn’t a performance, it was near enough a mutiny.

I would pick something like the 1-4 v Airdrie…….it was a cumulative poison thing. MR had gone on about what a turnaround looks like (and it’s not win win win apparently). It was the game where even in our most gullible mindset, we all knew beyond doubt that for the Scottish game at least, MR was out of his cultural depth, and was getting ever closer to becoming the star of the latest Chemical Ali satire.

Agreed, the 6-0 was embarrassing, but as fans we at least knew it would bring managerial change, with plenty of time left in the season to maybe salvage performances and a playoff. 

The routine humiliations, at home, at the hands of Airdrie, Montrose et al have just been depressing. Nothing redeemable about them at all. 

Christ I love coming on here to post

The fact that a 6-0 defeat at the hands of Queen’s Park (or any team at this level for that matter) isn’t the unanimous worst moment of the season among supporters says it all really.

Just a horrible, horrible time to be a Falkirk fan.

Any information on the “names” or just what’s being discussed on earlier pages/posts, thanks

Where are we getting this new board being full of Falkirk fans with egos pish from?  Unless having an ego means having to give up your time to work 7 days a week to get your club out the shitter of course .
