Should be the most competitive league in the country next season. I would imagine the Fifers will be favourites, and we (like our league standing)will be fifth or sixth favourite behind Montrose, QotS one of Airdrie and QotS, and maybe even Kelty too.

Very happy for us to be rank outsiders.

We’ll end up 2nd favourites I’d expect.

You called? 

Nothing Yogi does at any other club will stop me wanting him back. 

He's had a strange up and down career. I would have bet on him to keep the Pars up.

Tragically, he is still our most successful ever manager. You have to go back to the days of a selection committee and trainer to find more consistent results. Given that he played so many games for us, won 4 championship medals, with our fattest ever transfer fee at the time, it's strange so many folk hate him.

Remember all the folk on here championing the Yogi return as our manager? Dinosaur.

Hang on. At least Yogi is consistent in giving the Falkirk fans exactly what they want.
As proven again today…

Don’t think many “hate” the guy, just got above his station a few times, which pissed people off.

If it wasn’t for Latapy he would have never had a successful period with us as a manager

Rubbish. We were never a one man team even with Latapy….

I don’t think it is rubbish TBH. If you look back when Latapy left gradually got worse. He signed Dads army and the rest is history. Also Hughes was very successful at ICT until Russell left.

You can’t ignore the quality of players he brought to the club. That wasn’t solely down to Latapy.

The team ran out of steam after a number of successful seasons. Much in the same way it did under Houston…

I never said the recruitment was down to Latapy but his influence around the place both as player and coach should not be underestimated. The same happened at ICT when he left. Latapy has not been at any other club than us and ICT when Hughes was manager. No coincidence IMO he has failed everywhere but us and ICT.

I don’t think I’ve claimed that Latapy didn’t have influence.
The question is whether Hughes was a good manager for Falkirk. I maintain he was for the majority of his tenure…..

I am not saying he wasn’t but without Latapy around he has always failed. It is no coincidence IMO.

Houston's team didn't run out of steam. He never had sufficient backing by the board to replace key players who had left.

He also inherited the majority of that ICT team from butcher.
