The Falkirk FC Thread

Seems RR are making last ditch attempts at persuading him to stay. A lot of ire from Rovers fans about the way it's been handled.

We could yet be knocked back by McGlynn.

The Board either leaked the story or posters on the forum are bullshitting. Either way it has damaged the clubs search for a manager

Utterly stupid as all it did was tip the wink to RR to get their finger out to keep McGynn.

Sadly all to typical of the goings on at the club and not a good look for the new board.

What should have been done. Falkirk contact RR asking can we talk to McGynn. RR most likely say ok but wait till the end of the season and keep it confidential. That's showing respect to RR and McGynn and integrity by Falkirk. 

RR fans have every right to be angry can you imagine if the boot was on the other foot that another club had been doing that to Falkirk.

I'm sure Raith would have been happy for us to speak to McGynn as they would have absolutely no idea who he was.

Beginning to think you're at the wind-up now!

He's out of contract at RR so there was no need to contact them. They've probably reacted to the newspaper gossip we've all seen and reflects poorly on them.

Your logic for that approach is baffling considering what is reportedly happened - RR clearly wouldn't think it OK if only yesterday they were suddenly forced to negotiate a new deal with him to avert him joining us. 

Where is RR respect in all of this?

They've not tapped him up! He's out of contract. His only obligation to RR is to consider a new deal - which they acquiesed over to the point where he's considered leaving. Like any other walk-of-life, he's not going to wait around for his current employer to decide whether they want him or not.

On this subject, your criticism of our board is bizarre.

You are just making things up now, numerous posters have tried to explain things to you but you seem incapable of absorbing simple information. McGlynn is out of contract and on the face of it Falkirk have done absolutely everything above board if the speculation is true as appears to be. There is zero evidence of any “leaks” by the Falkirk board if you have evidence to contrary please show me? Fans speculating about McGlynn, Murray, Wright ect is all perfecty normal on a online chatter page! It does not mean somebody from Falkirk, Raith Rovers or Mcglynns camp have leaked some top secret confidential shit they shouldn’t have! Please accept this in the way everyone else has and shut the f**k up! You are either clueless or have some kind of agenda against the new guys running the club because you seem hell bent on discrediting them without any evidence or substance.

So your raging Raith found out we have approached him because of a leak but you want us to ask Raith permission to speak to him? I’m confused 😂😂🤷‍♂️

I can't tell if you've got us all on strings or just some thick c**t.

Whenever I saw "hope street walker has posted", I used to think it would be something reasonable/constructive.

Which makes me think this is a wind up. Complete meltdown stuff.

That’s some take on the situation. Will be one of the old board members stirring it (laughable that some of them can call anyone out on leaks) or one of their patsies/hangers on.

I am not remotely in the know so this could be complete nonsense but I was told Falkirk did actually ask the Rovers for permission (which was granted) before they spoke to McGlynn last week because he is technically still under contract until the end of May. Not heard anything suggesting there has been any poor conduct in the approach of Falkirk.

The Rovers fans are angry at our own board for getting to the last game of the season before deciding what to do with our manager, I’ve not seen any anger directed to Falkirk or their board. I don’t think McGlynn could have had any complaints if he was let go after the disastrous second half of the season but the board couldn’t seem to decide either way.

We are now left in the impossible position of either losing a popular manager to a team in the league below or trying to match Falkirk’s offer by handing a long contract and large wage increase to someone who has won 3 of their last 19 league games and hasn’t won a home game since December.

That is a Sheerin or Rennie type of record. Why are we so keen on signing him? He is 60 now, maybe he is past his sell by date?

People in their sixties are not automatically 'past their sell be dates' thank you very much! Maybe the guy just needs a new challenge and the Goodwillie thing may just have pissed him off a bit?

I also heard Falkirk asked the club for permission to speak to him as he is contracted till end of may/beginning of June and that the rovers does have intentions to keep him but we’re waiting till the season finished to enter further talks, for like budgets, contract renewals etc it will be interesting to see what happens

I'm in my 60s Shagger and I don't have the same fire in my belly that I used to have. Just a fact of life.

So it seems we've offered him more money, a longer contract and a bigger budget but he's still considering staying at Raith.  

Hardly sounds like someone desperate to be at Falkirk.  I'd be putting a deadline on this of end of today.  If he wants to join he agrees, if not he stays where he is and we appoint someone excited to be here.
