Ken it’s not our business to care anymore, but I’m still slightly curious as to where Griffiths will end up. Part of me thinks he might get a lower-end Championship team based on reputation alone - the other part of me thinks he’s completely finished at any sort of decent level. 

Wouldn’t be surprised if he headed to Australia, perhaps to team up with Jason Cummings

It’s actually quite tragic but I’m a 55yr old man who finds himself constantly refreshing the FFC twitter to see if anything has been confirmed., it’s like being a kid on Xmas morning.This time of year at least gives you some hope that a new era is about to begin at the club. It’s just the bit after a handful of games that kills you. Hopefully this time will be different 🙏🏻

You can turn notifications on. Makes it a little less tragic 😉

I might be up there as John McGlynn's biggest fan, but this isn't completely true. While he does put a huge amount of effort, miles and hours into his scouting and recruitment, to say he's "spot on" identifying players is a stretch. When it comes to finding strikers in particular he's got many more misses than hits. 

 

He brought Fernandy Mendy over from France and gave him a 2 year deal as a professional footballer, a truly incredible decision. I'd also question any manager who believed Adam King and Blaise Riley Snow were worth signing for the Championship. Plenty of alarm bells ringing there in terms of recruitment, before you even mention the Goodwillie farce and Raith's collapse this season. 

All that said, the quality of manager in Scottish football is generally dreadful and McGlynn is one of the better ones that Falkirk could have appointed. If he gets a bit of time - which perhaps isn't a given when Falkirk fans always seem to be obsessed with getting people out of the club - I'd expect him to get them back into the second tier.

I wonder if Mcglynn will get more from Brad McKay, clutching at straws but you can’t play that many games at a higher level and be a poor as he has been so far….surely??? 😂

Would be some turn if he did. If he can also work his magic on Hetherington, we will be unstoppable - or at least beating  whoever replaces Dumbarton

Don’t be ashamed, we’re all tragic here ;)

I’ve been critical of the start the new board made but should also say fair play for the work being done now… 

Didnt really want McGlynn but he’s a far better bet than Alan Johnston / Jim McIntyre etc. Recruitment has been better than us, particularly in the loan market (ie. Jamie Gullan). Raith played some very decent football especially since being promoted to the  championship. He seems to get better performances out of players that we couldn’t (ie. Aidan Connolly). 

On top of that, a quick start in terms of releasing players and sharing the news with supporters. Feeling more positive than ever before… 

Just need to get a smashing new kit, release Brad McKay, sign 15 new players and win the league. Easy x

He could have waited, I was posting this!
But in a way, could be appropriate for our new season (oh please God!)
 

Could be, who knows?
There's somethin' due any day
I will know right away, soon as it shows
It may come cannonballin' down through the sky
Gleam in its eye, bright as a rose
 
Who knows? It's only just out of reach
Down the block, on a beach, under a tree
I got a feelin' there's a miracle due
Gonna come true, comin' to me
 
Could it be? Yes, it could
Somethin's comin', somethin' good, if I can wait
Somethin's comin', I don't know what it is
But it is gonna be great
 
With a click, with a shock
Phone'll jingle, door'll knock, open the latch
Somethin's comin', don't know when
But it's soon, catch the moon, one-handed catch
 
Around the corner
Or whistlin' down the river
Come on, deliver to me
 
Will it be? Yes, it will
Maybe just by holdin' still, it'll be there
 
Come on, somethin', come on in, don't be shy
Meet a guy, pull up a chair, the air is hummin'
And somethin' great is comin'
Who knows? It's only just out of reach
Down the block, on a beach, maybe tonight
 
Maybe tonight, maybe tonight

What a day, find out Bairn in Exile isn't a wee school kid taken by his parents to run a Benidorm bar but a 60 something bloke, mind blown. 

The most mental post I've seen in long enough from Taxi Massis, then Hope Street Walker continually being Hope Street Walker multiple times.

A release list to beat all release lists, with a bonus of ATS being on it for me, as I thought he had another year to go,  thank f**k.

Then an old school manager to top it off.

And it's only 5pm.

With such a competitive league next year, regardless of play off results, I’m not sure who is going to win your league but McGlynn will certainly have you there or there abouts with the play offs as a second chance of going up. 
 

I am sure we will pass each other come the end next season so all the best folks and if the pars do go down please make sure they stay there

1st signing an experienced goalkeeper please.

You'll get Robbie Thomson as player/ gk coach. Which isn't actually too bad for that level. Just don't ask for him to communicate with the defence or leave his line. 

 

What happened with mutch? Thought he looked a decent prospect when we were down there with you.

We've had Thomson wasn't the best . Might be a decent backup and coach though.

Boys in the terrace were talking about it on last nights pod and I genuinely can’t think where he would go, Kelty would be ideal bar the name of the club. If he didn’t have the 5 kids you’d imagine he could get a gig similar to what Cummings got in Australia. Darvel perhaps but giving him a black rooster card could kill him off, just never been fit the size of his shorts says it all.

He was our 'keeper when we went up and although he does have his moments, mainly due to communication, he is more than capable of being No1 in league 1. He's been our gk coach this season with macdonald as No1 but hasn't done terribly when called upon either.
