Would rather a younger GK but is he better than the 2 we have on the books? 100%. 

As much as I really don’t rate Paddy Martin, Doyle is absolutely stinking. If it was a player/coach role and he’s just going to sit on the bench then I’d just about get on board with it but considering we already have 2 ‘keepers that are absolutely nowhere near good enough plus a goalkeeping coach so he’s just not needed.

When you're earning somewhere in the region of 600-1.2k and you've got a choice between a couple hundred extra a week or playing in front of ~3000 folk it's a bit of a no brainer to be honest.

Especially when one of the clubs is your boyhood club..

Has Doyle signed ?

With the budget tight next season, it may be that Mcglynn is happy to go with Martin as first choice and then Doyle as both back up and goalkeeping coach.

I’m not saying that’s the right approach but it may be his thinking.

Holt contracted till Summer 2023.

You would reasonably expect Holt to be on peanuts but then there was a good chance his dad agreed his deal so he's probably the highest paid player at the club.

Be good to get a piece of decent (excitement may be to much to ask) news on the signing front. However if it’s a case of getting the right players over the line, or some of the signed shite currently with us binned, I’m good with waiting……..

I was thinking that - he’ll be on a decent contract I bet.

If that’s his thinking we are Donald ducked.

Normally McGlynn likes to get his business done early and get in preseason 2 weeks or so early as well, but he always said when he was with us, he wants the right players in to fit his style of play etc rather than signing a load of players and not be good enough, also he likes to go with small squads as well I don’t know how the injury record is at Falkirk, but over the years has been horrendous and he kept on signing player after player where he basically had too much for the same position type then.. this is how he done with us it might be different for yous

Don’t think he could beat our players this season for the same position.
Don’t get me started with “players not good enough “that’s why we’re still down here.

We've had a plague of midgets for the past two seasons, hoping JM will completely change the way the club has recruited, an embarrassing array of utter shite.

He likes a physical striker, like a Gozie Ugwu, Varian etc but we never really had height in midfield just good ball players for his “silky soccer” and he likes to play wingers on opposite wings to cut inside
