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.

If he wasn't considering it he'd have signed with us last week.  I think its odds on he'll choose us but hope its for the challenge rather than just the money.  

Last week? The season wasn’t even finjshed and he’s still under contract!

Was probably a bit busy with a game on Friday to sign last week to be fair.

Is this just speculation on your part or are you ITK? Don't want HSW having another melt-down.

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.

 

 

 

FFS give it a rest and go google Tractors!

I blame Benny T's erratic opening hours, if they did a standard shift like the rest of us we could have wooed the new manager over some under cooked Calamari and a soggy bottomed pizza last week and it would have been a done deal.

Even Pep likes Pepperoni.

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?

Really? Would you say that if it was dick Campbell

Aye, regardless of your viewpoint on whether or not it should be McGlynn (and I can understand both viewpoints) fair play if this is a done deal less than a week after the end of the season. I had a horrible feeling we'd be scrambling around for another youth coach in July.

Three year deal apparently. Big call for someone who has just won 3 in 21 or something. 

It may well be a three year deal but the notice period is the key bit for me after the previous notice periods we gave previous managers prior to Rennie

I’d be mightily surprised if Spencer goes with him. Clubs in our league are also sniffing round him. Genuinely gutted to lost McGlynn, but I can understand why he’d want a move away. Better money, more security, I get it. My favourite ever Rovers manager. Look after him.

If we get McGlyn I'll be happy but I'd be delighted if he can bring a few of Raiths players with him. It would be a solid base to start from.

One thing McGlynn is spot on with is identifying decent players. If there is a game on he will be there watching. Hopefully the rumours are all true now.
