The Falkirk FC Thread


Recommended Posts

Mcglynn was very happy with the budget he's been given.  A couple more signings and a few loans will make all the difference . To get a decent goalscorer or two in it's going to have to be loan deals these days. Still loads of time yet.

These players had the same trigger when Rennie came in, McKay, Hetherington, Wilson etc and still were gash. 

I gave the full squad clean slate for Rennie and the usual suspects were still terrible 

 

We are maybe saving cash on the washing, socks shorts and tops one wash together 😶😶

The only thing I will say is that Rennie was a diddy who was miles out of his depth, whereas John McGlynn is a football manager.

Aye, it's been a quiet spell of late but I expect Yeats to be signed, another 1 maybe 2 on top and at least 2 loans which we all know tend to come later.

No cause for panic yet. Regardless of the balance of permanent/loan, I'd imagine one way or another there will hopefully be 5 new faces in. That will completely chance the face of the team and make or break us.

Hoping it's just an issue with my online banking but I seem to have 2 payments taken for my season ticket. The payments are pending on my online banking but the moneys been taken.

I noticed this too along with the tickets for the game against Stranraer. Hopefully it’ll sort itself out

5 competent signings (even if 3-4 of them are loans) in the right positions and we may still have a good season. Probably 3 strikers, a creative midfielder and a utility-type player that can play RB & midfield would be the priorities for me

The greatest football manager whoever lived couldn't get Wilson to score goals tho.

He may squeeze a bit more out of some of last season's dross but I can't see it being a water to wine miracle

I still think the rest of last season's gang dont deserve to wear a Falkirk strip ever again for downing tools and not trying a leg from about September onwards.

Absolutely spot on.

God's 1st few games for us were frankly poor but i remember standing on the terrace at Rugby Park screaming CROSS IT CROSS IT,then going or scoring is good as well🙈

I said similar with Latapy at St Johnstone. The play was down the opposite end and he's beaten a couple of defenders then taking his time over his next move. I'm screaming cut it back cut it back. He then smashes it in the roof of the net 🤣

I think that was the game we won 3-0 or 3-1, Pedro scored and Kevin Cuthbert had to be stretchered off after a knee in the head from his own teammate

Maybe he hasn’t accepted our offer?

There is that possibility as by playing reasonably well in the 2 games so far, he could have alerted other club therefore may have alternative offers. 
 

Of the talk of new signings, McGlynn took Raith to the 1/4 finals of the league cup last season which shows he takes the tournament seriously so I’d expect he’ll want the majority of his squad in place by the time we kick off vs Morton.

My personal main concerns with the squad are no striker who’ll score more than 10, an awful right back and the lack of a creative midfield player.

We also however cannot spend money we don’t have to fix all these issues in one window.
