I know with FSS you're paying for fan ownership as a concept etc etc but even at a tenner a month you're asking fans to pay another 50% into the club on top of their season ticket. 25% of season ticket holders doing so isn't a terrible number imo.

It's a tough one because I don't think you'll see that number drastically increase until performances improve on the park, but you need the membership numbers and finance from FSS even more when the team is worse. I'm not sure how you get around that other than word of mouth to try and get existing members to encourage their friends and family to sign up.

The thing is we all know we are a loyal support and everybody will dip into their pockets if needed like the provisional liquidation time, few else have done what we have done under those circumstances.

I just wish we could get the FSS numbers up to what Morton and St Mirren have accomplished as that can make a real difference and give us a bit of breathing space I guess around finances.

It’s tight for everyone just now as well as the club so it’s a tough thing to achieve though.

Nothing but respect for what they’re doing, but I think there be a £5 tier for FSS, especially when times are tough financially.

This has been suggested as part of a review. Junior memberships also being looked at & we will discuss with Sarah & the JBs too.

Slightly off topic but noticed at Kevin’s game the number of advertising boards removed, didn’t count but seemed to be an enormous amount removed. I’m assuming that these businesses were getting a free pass for the past few seasons?

Any idea of the scorers? Courier's done a lovely wee article on it but only mentioned who scored for Dundee United.

This was Falkirk's third game but only DU's first... it was mostly a fitness exercise for united... they had a youthful look (after making loads of substitutions!)...

Any more feeble excuses you want to add to that, D.C.?

Nesbitt with the first, OG for the second (assist Jaime Wilson) and Morrison for the third. 

Don't want to comment on trialists as it was closed-door so there will be no match report on FFC sites. Utd as hosts are entitled to brief whatever journos they want but FFC didn't invite any.

By any chance was there a big black guy up front?

My comments regarding Nesbitt not scoring or creating goals is really coming back to haunt me, but I’m glad it is.

Tbf out of all the dross that’s been left behind, at least Nesbitt showed something at some point. Granted from October until the end of the season he looked like he couldn’t work his legs but if he can get back to his August/September form then I’m sure we’d all take that.

Correctamundo. Not all, but most.

Part of me is dreading Finn Yeats signing, can't be doing with folk getting his name wrong left right and centre by calling him Yates or we've even had Yeates.

I am sure if signed, John McGinn will make sure people spell FY’s name correctly.
