The Falkirk FC Thread

Just much more quality in the St Johnstone team, remember it's Sean Welsh playing in the middle of the park for Inverness. Murray Davidson's having a field day in there.

That’s actually the problem with them they’ve for some bizarre reason got Sean Welsh playing in the middle of a back 3 and they’re badly missing him in midfield. He’s their best midfielder by a distance so a really strange decision by Dodds.

I think he's just dropping in to try take the ball, I don't think he's actually playing as a centre back. Deas is the only player in that Inverness team that would get near that St Johnstone side.

Credit to IC. STJ thought it was a case of seeing out the second half.

Strange team all together. Not starting the likes of Chalmers who has been brilliant for them. St Johnstone's bottle didn't half crash in that second half though.

Just wrote out my fantasy Falkirk 11 then realised each position was interchangeable with 2 or 3 others and deleted it all.

Can I just have 11 x Crunchie please?

Beautiful little b*****d

I guess I fall into the “Markie Miller Gibson” camp, with a sprinkling of players from other eras….Kennedy, Gillespie, .Stainrod, Crunchie, Latapy. I would have Johnny Graham in there too.

The one I would give an honourable mention to who no one seems to have mentioned was a brief flickering flame of utter class before Roy Aitken signed him and ruined him………Gary Smith.

Scott Allardice is our best midfielder by a mile, followed by Roddy McGregor.

I can never settle on an all time XI but you have to love the idea of a team with both Stainrod and Latapy. First on the teamsheet obviously Crunchie every day of the week.

How about a "rest of the world" XI:

Mallo
Aafjes, Den Bieman, Tiago
Riera, Latapy, Ristic, Lima
Samuel, El Alagui, Moutinho

And the nightmare equivalent:

Fasan
Oponga, Lescinel, Khalis 
Theobald, Tano, Wallner, De Massis
Finnbogason, Fellner, Xausa

Admittedly that midfield is being judged on not a lot of playing minutes, I did see the entirety of De Massis' Falkirk career though...

Froxylias or Haber are WAY more worthy than Gerhard Fellner. Not sure what he did wrong to get in a nightmare 11. I remember him being quite good for his short spell.

No way does Wallner deserve to be in that team, he was a cracking player and had a great career before and after Falkirk. One of Yogi's player fallouts, me thinks.
