The Falkirk FC Thread

Has there been a bigger upgrade in the history of football than going from Steven Hetherington to Stephen McGinn?
Maybe not but I'd need to see Nesbitt > Sibbald just to be sure

John McGlynn said on signing Gary:

“Gary is a striker who can also play behind a striker or coming in off a side. He’s gained a lot of experience mainly playing in the Championship, and we feel Gary will complement the way we want to play. He’s an intelligent attacking player who can link the play in and around the box, he knows the route to goal, he knows the runs to make, and he’s coachable and willing to learn. At 26 years old we believe he’s ready to play a big part next season and beyond.”

Liked the bit about being ‘coachable and willing to learn’

Sean Mackie the final one. 

McGinn is a good signing and player (I'm happier with Hamilton though), Mackie and Oliver are very, very meh though.

I think we may see McCann tested out on the left side of midfield.

This won't be the last time of the summer that one of us says to someone else on this thread.... You haven't watched that they are replacing. 

 

I would take any sort of bet that Gary Oliver is a significantly better signing than Leigh Griffiths, Jaime Wilson, Michael Ruth and Samuel Ompreon. Let's hope McGlynn does as he says and finds someone who Oliver can link up well with. 

 

Mackie... Well I'm not one of the ones who thought Leon McCann was a problem needing solved, so I won't slag McCann off in the same context, but should be perfectly adequate.

Oh I have no doubt that they are replacing dross, I hadn't realised until recently that you somehow managed to accrue even less points than what we did during our horror season down here. However just because something is replacing shit, doesn't automatically make it good.

No, but as others have alluded loads of times and someone said again today, these types of players do well in this league and the league above on a routine basis. Many of the ones who have been absolute shite for us in the last few year have notably went away and been fine or good elsewhere. We have had a foolproof habit of turning folk to pure shite of late so I think it's OK for us to now finally look at a real football manager making these selections and thinking, yeah hel do ok with us.

Wonder if McCann would be worth trying on the left of the midfield. His height got him caught out a lot defensively but he could be worth a punt further forward.

Yes, Mackie being the giant a whole 2cm taller.

Expecting a lot more hard work at the opposite side of todays signings, ie, offloading some of the shite accumulated over past two seasons. This could be the difference in bringing in a couple of additional players. Good luck John……

I’ll wait and see. I’m not making any bold predictions before anyone has kicked a ball.
