There was a press conference and photcall today. Falkirk TV interview will be later in the week. 

As far as fanfare goes, it's possible they might have some sort of "meet the manager" event during the close season. I'm guessing that if it happened it would be once season tickets go on sale. 

Wow!

Not so daft, after all.

Wouldn't surprise me if the white sides would be filled in, but then the centre blue be replaced by white. Keep an eye on what Plymouth Argyle have, if they are still with Puma for next season.

Very curious as to which sponsor we will have

One thing is certain. It won’t be Clarke ePOS.

Do we know if they've shafted everyone else they've sponsored were we the only ones stupid enough to fall for their pay monthly pish?

It doesn’t make me feel better but if you want to believe that the contact stopped and the perseverance from JMCG to get him in the door receded after the sponsor and volunteers and fans spoke up against the possibility, I hope it makes you feel better.

Well someone's telling Porkie pies that's for sure. I don't give a feck either way. It's raith that have to piss about trying to get a striker getting paid over a grand a week off their books not Falkirk. I'm more interested in what he does for us. No skin off my nose so I've no reason to make anything up and I certainly don't spend my time thinking about what sort of stuff I can make up on a message board I can assure you of that.

Someone is, that’s for sure.

You’re also miles off on the wages.

You’ll be telling us all next that your manager wasn’t all over him either trying to get him to play for your club.

That seemed to be the amount mentioned most by Raith fans on the Raith thread.  Whether  it's a pound or a thousand pounds it's a complete waste of money that's for sure.

We showed an interest but not at the price clyde were asking as far as I know.  Rennies away now so who gives a feck.

Save yourself the keystrokes and just go back a couple of hundred pages. This has already been discussed long since.

He didn't sign for us and McGlynn won't make the same mistake twice.

If my auntie had balls ...

1. Rumours on the new strip please (which I won't buy)

2. Rumours on the season ticket price and dates (which i'll buy anyway)

3. any other rumours? (or rumours about rumours, which are sometimes better than the original rumour)

Heard today Shaun Mackie may be signing from Hibs.

We weren't prepared to pay what Clyde wanted so that was that. Raiths board were and are still paying for it and could be for some time yet.

This might be a daft question but given that McGlynn started today and there are a stack of players contracted to 31.05.23 / 31.05.2024 will McGlynn run the rule over the squad in the next few weeks or did they effectively all bugger off for the summer after our last game v QPFC on 30.04.22 and wont return until pre season starts?   

Presumably the players will have an unfettered right to a number of weeks off but if that doesn't officially start until 1 June then getting a look at the squad now might be helpful.  They could have been preparing for a playoff just now so its reasonable to get cracking on preparation for next season.  Clearly the players would hate being called in, but they should have maybe thought about that before being such useless shitebags this season.

Was at Raith on loan. Totally different style of left back to McCann that's for sure. Would meet the more physical requirements that mcglynn favours.

Only seen him play a handfull of times but Mcglynn did keep bringing him back to Raith so wouldn't be a surprise. Bit of a utility player, left sided not exactly anything special from what I have seen but admittedly that's very little.

I think we'd be naive to think that mcglynn hasn't seen us or at least had someone watching us since we first showed an interest in him. I'd expect him to know every player on our books.  Plus Rennie will have info to pass on to him.

Let's not forget that Rennie was "helping" the board whilst Miller took the reins. If he's identified players then you'd think McGlynn will pretty much reject most of them if Rennie's January window is anything to go by. The only players of any note that Rennie brought in that you could say got pass marks were Watson and Kabia. The rest were ganting including Griffiths.
