Thought there might have been a signing in the forward department or someone else leaving today, the thought of Wilson up front on Saturday at any point gives you the dry boak. 

He’ll be 3rd choice best on Saturday as Oliver and Morrison will play there before him or Malcolm.

Wilson was first off the bench against Stranraer, part of me obviously wants a striker in before Saturday but the reason we signed Jaime Wilson is because we panicked about the cup games. So I've decided I'd rather we waited for someone of decent quality. If need be chuck Morrison up there.

Best goal I’ve ever seen was also by George Miller against Rangers on New Year’s Day 1971. I was in the stand enclosure with my pal between the home dug out and the Watson Street end. Falkirk got a free kick just outside the box to the right hand side as we looked at it at the Hope Street end. Rangers lined up their wall and Miller and Ferguson were apparently arguing as to who was going to take it. Culminated with Miller throwing his hands in the air and stomping off to the left in disgust. Took about 4-5 steps and turned. Ferguson slipped it to him and Miller blasted it into the net. A brilliant piece of trickery that I’ve never seen bettered. Sadly overshadowed next day with the Ibrox disaster

I remember it being a bitterly cold day with remnants of snow and ice around the pitch.

Does anyone know if the club shop is open tomorrow evening? Want to pick up bonnyrigg tickets but can’t go during day due to work

Would assume 4pm close tomorrow. Looks like late opening was for tonight (Wednesday) only.

Saw a comment on Twitter that ticket sales are slow, so far, for the Hibs game next week. Hopefully a similar home crowd to that of the Crunchie game at least but being live on TV doesn’t help.

I won’t be going to any of these premier sport cup games.

 

Games before August are unconscionable, football is a winter sport. I’d rather be out doing something when we have better weather than siting on my erchie watching 2nd rate football. Lots of people play Golf, Bowls,  go fishing, hiking or sailing etc..  so I’m not surprised it’s a hard sell.

If you don’t mind, it’s 3rd rate football. July doesn’t seem to have done the Women’s Euros too much harm in terms of ticket sales. Of course, the English media now dump all their jingoism from the men’s game onto the women’s game as they see it as the opportunity for Engerlund to win “only their second major trophy”.

If we were to put Morrison up front though then that leaves nobody else to play wide. As it stands Wilson is genuinely our second choice striker. I’m confident that by the end of the window at least he’ll either he well down that pecking order or fucked of to some other unlucky club. But unless we bring someone in the next couple of days there’s a decent chance of him getting some game time on Saturday which is terrifying.

Got a feeling we may see him at right wingback.

I've raked Better Meddle and can't find anything remotely like the match you're referring to. Even friendlies are recorded on there and I think it's unlikely they'd be wrong.

You're going to have to point me in the right direction.

Must be the 3 - 2 game then.

But what a goal made all the better with being about 30ft from where it was taken.

The vision, skill, touch was just sublime. The most skillful left-footed player I have seen in a Falkirk Jersey  and an inspiring captain.

They were halcyon  days

It’s a few or worse case 2 x 90mins out of the full month, not sure I couldn’t squeeze it in tbh haha. 

Each to their own but close season is long enough without catching up with mates at the games.

If we get out of the group we get 50,000£ in prize money. That alone is a reason for us to take these games seriously. Plus £15,000 from Hibs tv game and the possibility of a "big team" game in the next round. Every penny is a prisoner just now for us - these are important games.
