Leigh Griffiths leaving Falkirk having been paid £1500+ a week to score two goals in 14 appearances in the Scottish third tier, contributing to a bottom half finish.

Thank goodness that’s all over, possibly the worst season in our history both on and off the pitch. No idea how the BOD will turn this around. More worrying is the people that are leaving behind the scenes. Doesn’t give me any confidence in the current BOD to take us forward.

That's it over what a nightmare. Never thought I would say it but this is worse that the mid 70's

Far worse.

The only word to describe this season is shameful.

I suspect Morrison will want to play in the Championship next season.  I bet his agent is doing the rounds.  Likely we would accept a small fee for him if a bid came in from the likes of Hamilton or Thistle for who he seems ideal.

I've heard that his injuries will prevent him playing at a higher level.

Yet another season where we're asking ourselves how did it possibly get worse than the year before? Also another massive decision to make for our board in terms of who they appoint as our next manager but it's very difficult to see any light at the end of the tunnel given the players we already have signed up for next season. 

A lot can happen over the summer but I highly doubt we'll be able to get rid of most of those plebs. 

Thank god the season's over but our problems are far from over.

Got to be one of our worst signings in a long time on a value for money basis. 

£1500 a week down the drain (and off next season’s already limited budget) for basically zero contribution. Absolutely crazy decision to sanction the signing.

Who could possibly have foreseen the disaster this season has been when we started the campaign with one of the most inept boards in Scottish football; Gary fucking Holt (!) leading up footballing operations and a 'Head Coach' who only wanted the job because he'd been booted from coaching kiddies and putting the bibs and cones out at Aberdeen; those two brainboxes combining to sign almost an entirely new squad comprising of dregs from Morton, Partick etc etc on two and three year contracts, literal children, their pals, or in one case, their son lol; replacing Cones halfway through the season with a Salesman who had never managed in the UK before and appointing an assistant who was more interested in Rangers punditry rather than coaching, and those two spunking a significant sum of money in January on signing a washed-up former international striker who has hardly kicked a ball since 2018 on 1500 quid a week, rather than sorting the glaringly obvious holes in the centre of the park. Certainly not me!

20:20 hindsight.

Not really- I think most people could have said in January that spending £1500 a week on a player who is not fit and who hasn’t contributed much elsewhere recently wasn’t the best use of funds when there were still huge weaknesses elsewhere in the squad.

It wasn't so long that we looked upon the Ochilview season as dreadful but having seen how we've fallen, I'd take that in a heartbeat.

It wasn't so long ago that we had a critical word against some of those players who work the Navy Blue and now done the cobwebs, but having seen how far we've fallen I'd take back Grant, Robson, Longridge, McHugh and Mikey Doyle in a heartbeat- MIKEY DOYLE FFS! 

But today is the end of the worst chapter in our club's history. It is hopefully the beginning of the reality that we are not this dormant giant about to wake up and return to the dizzy heights. We never were to begin with!

Perhaps something 80s which I think is applicable can perhaps herald the new beginning:

They have to get better.

Failure to strengthen the midfield was a disaster but LG really should have been capable of contributing far more in this league.
