I wonder if the boy who always posts on falkirk fans fb page who can't tell the difference between of and off works for our media team

Oh, f*ck of.

I just want youngsters to understand the difference between "have" and "of".

"He should of scored a goal."

Aaaaaaaaarrrrgggghhhhh!!!!!!!!!!

Edit: Honestly, I once saw a journalist for one of the tabloids use "of" instead of "have". Shocking.

Puma collar this year?

Are Man City going for the ‘we are going to nick your mobile outside the chippy look’ or Oasis tribute band?

That’s class. Two players and the club mascot in an official Man City hoodie. That’s the very definition of “inclusive”.

George Connelly Celtic 1970 European Cup to add to your ex Bairns who played in European final

What a footballer and could have been Scotlands Franz Beckenbauer. One of Scottish footballs what if he could have and his clubs addressed his personal problems - tragic loss to football.

Was a shadow of the player he was when he played for Falkirk but the occasional glimpse of what a phenomenal player he was could be seen now and again. It was shown when Falkirk got a free kick up to 40 yards out. The opposition were all back, 2 players on the goal line, a wall and terrified. They knew all to well what he could do.

John Burridge played in the 1971 Anglo-Italian Cup final...

Obviously not a serious suggestion but it sounds like it was a lot of fun:

"The first final was abandoned early due to violence, with Swindon Town declared the winners. During its time the tournament had a reputation for violence between fans, and also between players on the pitch."

What competition was it that the 18 yard line was extended right across the pitch (like ice hockey), and you could only be offside beyond that line? Was that the Texaco Cup?
Subbuteo pitches used to have that line. It wasn't at 18 tho it was a good bit further out.... Maybe 25 or 30.

Unsure how accurate subbuteo pitches were.
