Am I right in saying that Mcglynn stated in the pre match interview that Nesbitt was injured? He obviously played last night and it was Seb Ross that was sitting in the stands injured. Bit of an awkward one if he’s got his own players names mixed up. 

As long as Seb Ross doesn't accidentally get any game time

Nesbitt was definitely carrying a knock last night, surprised he stayed on as long as he did. 

Ah fair enough then. Hopefully get a tune out of him and McGuffie but still desperately need another box to box scoring midfielder and a striker.

C Morrison offered very little. Someone said that he looked like he'd want to play elsewhere but, if he's looking for a move, he didn't go the right way about getting one.


I think im in minority but I've never got the love for Morrison that some off our fans seem to have, he can go if he likes, won't be a big loss imo, free up a wage to get someone else in.

What was the deal with naming the academy players on the bench as trialist last night? Pearse Carroll, young left footer that came on in the middle of the park towards the end, was named but the rest weren't, is he the only one actually signed?

I think their contracts have expired whereas Carroll’s runs until December.

If he believes he is too good for league one, then he wouldn't have signed two longer deal extensions with us.

I will applaud his decent performances but in recent times his decision making and injuries are more the talking point.

I'm hoping that McGlynn can get more of the first season Morrison back,time well tell if Morrison appreciates being barked at throughout

Seeing and hearing people who are upset with the result against killie. Of course 4-1 is quite a heavy defeat, however people need to bear in mind that we kept level and if not played better than killie for at least 70 minutes when we started to bring on our u18s and that rank no.9.

If we had a fully fit team with a couple more of the suggested players that we are looking at I could’ve seen us keeping it level or winning. Killie are a physical and defensive side so our “lack of chances created” makes sense - never even expected us to put up a chance to be honest.

Personally looking pretty solid, but I know from the past that good pre-seasons don’t mean a good season, so reserving overall judgement till we’ve played a few league games.

The litmus test will be how we react to our first defeat in the league this season. Hopefully it's a long way off but in recent seasons we've done ok lost a game and then collapsed like a pack of cards

I actually wouldn't be too bothered if Morrison went if we could bring in better BUT the one thing he does have is pace and apart from when Kabia came in last season he's been the only one in the team who is quick.  And given the other options are Wilson, Oliver and Malcolm it's slim pickings in the striker dept. I still think we need two decent strikers, a right back, a winger and a midfielder (that may or may not be the trialist from last night ). Pivotal that McGlynn gets the one or two permanent signings still to come in spot on and the loan market ones same. Its just a pity it looks like we will have to wait an entire season so we don't have to endure Wilson, Nesbitt, McGuffie, Hetherington, Ross, Williamson, Holt and Sneddon call themselves Falkirk players. I would say McKay but he'll sit on the two years he's got left.

I don’t think your in the minority, the guys had a hard time with injuries, and whether true or not if he gets further issues it could be really serious for the guy. My issue is that like a few games early last season, it looks like he can’t be arsed. Posted earlier that M&S were on his case last night on more than a few occasions, when the outfield play was no where near him, didn’t look like any of them were to happy. If he’s got attitude - GHTF

The scoreline last night was an irrelevance. The important things all happened up until they scored their second via a very jammy deflection. Once the kids and untested trialists came on, it wasn’t really a contest. The Killie players knew it too, and the big guy who scored their fourth was near enough embarrassed by it. He knew who he was up against, and it was young boys.

The heartening things were to see a completely different style of play, and players from last season actually giving 100%, and players from last season who couldn’t kick their own arse turning in decent performances. That was the things to take away from the game given that most of our new defence were sat in the stands with minor injuries.

Like it or not, Killie are a top flight side and fielded a strong eleven. Ultimately, their fitness and their physicality was the difference between the two sides……not the style of football.

Apologies I do seem to have got it wrong earlier with Crunchies career and ability. Was talking to a few of the older guys last night about him and they told me he was basically Falkirks Ally Mitchell.

So if he was that good then I defo take it all back.

Sure I've seen it said here previously? But also heard elsewhere he has serious attitude and not the easiest guy to manage... so if the new management have already picked up on this then they need to stamp their authority on him and show him who's boss, which likely none of the previous managers had the balls to do?

Certainly McGlynn was not happy, don’t won’t to go overboard with first friendly, but if I was a betting man wouldn’t bet on movement with Morrison.

Morrison has a glass knee, would be very surprised if he managed to get through a medical before signing elsewhere.
