On today I'd be whacking Callumn Morrison upfront, let him run wild against the back two of Brian Mclean and Peter Grant. Quite interested to see how Rodden is for Clyde, I'm sure we had someone on here or the COYB page wanting us to sign him last season having watched him for the shire.

Morrison
Williamson Donaldson Mackie Mccann
McGinn Hetherington
Mcguffie Yeats Oliver
Morrison

Gary Oliver's best attributes are holding the ball up with his back to goal and leading a high press of the opposing defence. You'd lose all of that if you shunt him out wide.

He doesn't score goals so having him upfront on his own is equally as useless.

Completely disagree with that. The job of a striker isn’t just to score goals and especially in the system that McGlynn plays. I’ve seen Oliver getting quite a bit of stick so far and although I’d agree that he should be in the box more his hold up and link up play is brilliant. He never gives defenders a break, he’s very good with his back to goal and bringing the attacking midfield 3 into the game.

Strikers are primarily paid to score goals, Oliver does have good link up play but he absolutely loves to go out wide which when he's playing up top on his own is useless as we're then crossing to Morrison, Nesbitt and McGuffie. I'd much rather see him try keep between the posts inside the box so when we do get crosses in he's got a chance of scoring.

I Managed fine, What issues are you getting? Just went onto the website, logged in, clicked on Falkirk TV and chose the ppv. Just waiting on the stream to go live. 

It was saying unavailable at the moment when I was trying to pay. So I tried to log in and it failed. Had to re register for some reason. Sorted now, thanks.

Aye I had to register new details as well, apart from that, pretty seemless. Just hope the stream works out now

There’s a c**t in the middle of the Kevin McAllister stand who at least twice already has said we’re not any better than we were under Sheerin.

We really don’t deserve any nice things.

That’s bollocks, McGinn, Mackie, Yeats, Henderson, Oliver have all looked upgrades on what we had. We look much more secure at the back, we just still lack a wee bit creativity but Kennedy, Alegria still to come in and hopefully a few more.
