The Falkirk FC Thread


Recommended Posts

Good luck with that, there’ll be a Partick Thistle fan and a few Pars fans along shortly to bring it up at every opportunity
What a stupid thing to say.

Its all part of the 5-year plan.  McGlynn takes control for the next couple of season and then moves upstairs to become the DoF.  At that time, having gained a few more years experience at Airdrie, Murray comes in as the new manager.

Total sense.

As we're obviously struggling financially I'd prefer his assistant to be a player coach. Two for the price of one so to speak. 

He is not going to come to Falkirk without the guy he has worked beside for years.

Paul Smith’s wife is our CEO. Whether that means he stays even if John goes or not I don’t know. If Paul goes too then she’s probably out the door.

If this comes off, I can see absolutely no downside for us. No more untried youth coaches, aspiring barbers of American tourists but an actual bona fide football manager. It's an idea we haven't tried for years.

Apart from the Brian “hard done by” Rice narrative 

I saw that. Comedy gold. How these two mythical Directors can push anything through on a board of six, the CEO, DoF and Phil Rawlins all on the interview panel is beyond me. Even with my limited brainpower that’s nine. Embarrassing.

Paul Smith was with us for a couple of seasons wearing the fetching Hummel. How was he then? My memory was not bad.

Industrious but nondescript.

From a football point of view McGlynn would be a great appointment.

it’s also possible to be uncomfortable with the appointment due to the DGW situation.

Good appointment from Falkirk perspective and allows all parties to move on from the Goodwillie saga.

I would expect he will be the man to get you out of League 1 and get you competitive in the Championship but you might need a shit ton of money and/ or a replacement lined up for years 4 and 5 of the plan to complete the journey to the Premier League.

I'm disappointed how all this has turned out but hopefully we can make a decent appointment to replace him otherwise we might have to give you a wave as we change places in the next couple of seasons.

Narrative of the two by the sounds

Sounds like we are either in pole position or a tactical move by him to get a better deal at RR
 

Could be, if so we can hopefully make him an offer he won't refuse.

These papers are rags but on local football they tend to be well informed.

Case of wait and see if it is it. Reflects badly on the new board if true that they cannot keep it confidential apart from being stupid.

Give it a rest man. These things are impossible to keep quiet 99% of the time!

If someone else is more creative in the middle of the park then surely industrious would be enough. He was part of a team competing pretty well in the Premier League.
