The Falkirk FC Thread


Recommended Posts

I really don't understand this belief that we have to have some red in our kit. If you look at our kits throughout history then red only features as follows:

Either red socks or some part of the socks are red   39%

Red jersey or red trim on the jersey                               21%

Red trim on the shorts                                                       5%

Give me navy jersey, white shorts and navy/white socks every time. Our best kit in recent history was the 2015-2016 one and no red in sight.

As I have said previously on this thread, adding red to our kit makes it look too staunch for my liking.

I agree regarding the red, I don’t even like red away kits. They have to be white for me.  Mind you if it is a red away strip it won’t bother me too much as I’m way past the age of buying replica kits.

I am also not a fan of red on our kits apart from tiny wee highlights. The classic early 90s Hummel number being the exception.

This season's top is a slightly smaller logo away from being a 10/10.

Would have far preferred white shorts though.

We've finished 5th & 6th the last two seasons. I'd bite your hand off for 4th right now. It gets you into the play-offs & that's 10 months of work away, for McGlynn & Smith.

I get that point but 4/10 teams in the league have changed, we have a proper manager in place and I’d guess that 7 or 8 of our starting 11 will have changed from last season. I don’t think how we’ve performed in the last couple of seasons will have much relevance on how we do this season but I may be wrong.

I couldn't tell you the last time I bought a new replica kit but I usually get each season's when they're discounted for fives / running / gym

White shorts would have improved the overall kit but the home top is very smart,  will definitely be purchasing it for my wee lad and would have considered it for myself if I wasn’t such a fat b*****d 🤣

Definite PSG vibes regarding the home kit.

If it is to be a white away kit then I hope the old board went all in on the PSG theme 🤩

Just hoping we have a team fit to wear it - wouldn't want to label this squad Pretty Shit Guys in their PSG-esque kits.

I used to do that too but sadly my days of fives/running/gym are gone too now.

Get yourself a bike Harry, I'm a good 10 years older than you and I run about on mine for exercise, I am sometimes known to do 30km a day. In my favour the weather here is a wee bit warmer than Falkirk but in your favour you could take the bike along the canal towpath. I'd love to be back in Falkirk for that. And the bike is a lot kinder on the old knee joints.

Walking football mate, it's the way ahead. Says me having just returned from the physio!

Loan market is going to be critical but won’t see those players until premiership clubs have got their own players in first just like when we got McManus it’ll be later in the window.

I tried that and on my 2nd game I stretched to reach the ball and done my hamstring 🙄🤣🤣

I’m making my return to 5’s on 8th July. Been asked to play twice a week but only committing to once initially to see how my body reacts 😂.

Having been blessed with what was described by my gym teacher as a 'Spectacular lack of pace' I did not notice much difference at first as I got older but my knees did.

The last kit I bought was a cracking replica of the early 80’s Patrick top.

Simple enough to pass as a leisure top and not made from shitey,  shiney fabric.
