Wouldn’t say there has been an overreaction from Falkirk fans as they’ve watched their team in the pub league for a good few years now, but surely this talk of “another year in this league” already is utter nonsense? You had possibly the hardest start to the season you could get, and the games haven’t went your way. You’ll be disappointed given the hype around the manager and players he’s signed, but I can tell you for free that a few of them will be wasters, and your manager is a complete mumbleclown when it all boils down to it. Expect more ramblings post match. If we beat you, he’ll be a fucking seething mess, especially if we’ve dominated the game and won comfortably. He’s a complete banger of a man. I’d still have Falkirk as favourites to win the league though. It’s early days.

Don’t quite follow you here, are you not being a bit contradictory? Your telling us on one hand the manager is no good and the players he’s signed are wasters yet you put us as favourites to win the league?!

I'll disagree. He ran out-of-puff 2nd half but he's miles better than Hetherington or Nesbitt.  

McGuffie waltzed out of 3 Airdrie challenges with top footwork in one passage of play and set us away. There is a player in there but we are lacking confidence and hopefully wins will breed that.

I wouldn't put McGuffie in same boat as the rest mentioned, he would be aok for a squad player. Hetherington and Nesbitt would top my list, Hetherington brings absolutely nothing to the team and is one of the worst centre mids we have had.

Pretty suprised you can't get a tune out of Williamson, he's won this league twice.

I'm guessing he's had his share of injuries that he's scared to play his previous commitment level to avoid injury, he is basically shit feart on the park now.

Exactly mate. McGlynn will need 3 seasons minimum - we need stability.

With upmost respect, we need out of this league (this year) however let’s be honest with playing the downed tooled brigade, it’s likely at best two years. A third year and it’s definitely part time at best. The club has been backed against all odds, but the lack of further backing (FSS) is “enough is enough”

I imagine supporting the mighty bairns has taken a toll on you, forgetting last year won the league 3 weeks in after beating airdrie when you were down to 10 men for half the game. But you're right we aren't the same team as last year, we have got even better at pumping your lot.

Sorry my friend, but that really is just a bloody awful troll attempt. You just beaten us 4 zip, and you come up with that?

Trolling isn’t for everyone, and it most certainly isn’t for you.

My friend, since when was stating the obvious trolling? No worries though, in McGlynn you trust and all that COYB

Didn’t say he was a bad manager as such, just think he is a complete whopper of a guy.

The aim of the club is to be back in the top league by 2026.

Good to see that as well as The Killers concerts being hosted by yourselves there are also comedy events as well.

Not to go all crowdwanky but it's disgusting we have this standard of squad given the healthy ST sales and home crowds plus fan injections from Patrons and monthly subscriptions 

 

Remember we have over 750k in the bank going into last season. Patrons invested c250k, BFL 15kish and FSS c35kish and it was no enough to turn this squad over. Does that not tell you how badly we put last seasons squad together.

Seeing Gary Holt unlikely to get another footballing gig other than whatever crumbs Killie choose to throw his way is absolutely no comfort given the damage he has inflicted to FFC. Perhaps his appointment was Gary Deans and CO’s single biggest screw up of their tenure…..and there’s been plenty to choose from.

Probably too much expectation on McGlynn being able to transform dead wood into fine young oaks, and/or having a game face that somehow could get rid of every dumpling on the books.

If we want to do anything this season ie make the playoffs then he simply has to try and get shot of at least some of them. How I really don't know but if he doesn't then I can see us doing no better than last year. It won't take long for our steadyish defence (pre yesterday) to lose confidence if there's a constant barrage of pressure on them from the opponents  as Nesbitt and co go AWOL week in week out.

Gary Deans was a loudmouth twat from the word go.

We don’t even have to play them . Just tell unless you mutually terminate your contract you won’t be getting played . Pay them for sitting on the sidelines .make them train with the reserves . They don’t have to be played . I understand this is counter productive . But mentally drain them by saying you won’t be getting anywhere near the 1st team . They are doing hee haw to help us anyway so no big miss

Hes not going to get rid of any giving them a game every week though. Only way is to play hard ball and say you can sit on the bench or find yourself another side.  Sitting back hoping that a player will decide to move on under their own volitions isn't going to work. Playing mcguffie, nesbitt, hetherington and Morrison  together is never going to get you results. You'd probably get away with one but certainly no more than that. We've now had two transfer windows to replace these guys and yet they're still blooming starting games. Bcant see where any big injections of cash will come in given the recent financial concerns the bod have mentioned I'm more concerned about us getting through the season never mind paying off or getting players.

Trouble with that is its a lack of options we do have them but presently they are injured Kai Kennedy for one, In perspective it is the 2nd game and a long way to go but as you say with 4 of them we are starting with 7 men  basically. Its the length of contract bawbag handed out and how in the name of f**k can anyone have thought they were good Hetherington aside but I mean ffs a 4 goal striker even at league one level there are/were probably defenders with a better goal scoring record. Nesbitt and McGuffie I can't think of anyone ever posting I wish we had them and Morrison I think just seems to be following the crowd and saying f*ck it.

Which everyone is quite rightly allowed to pissed off it. On the face of it 4-0 to anyone who wasn’t at the game is a total pumping but we need to pick the bones of it. 
 

At not point in that game, until maybe the last 5 minutes, did I think we’d lose by that margin or be pumped. It just wasn’t that type of game. Anyone who sees we lost 4-0 would think we were under the cosh from minute 1 to minute 90 and it simply wasn’t the case. That’s why I made the earlier comment “it was never a 4-0 game”. A 4-0 score line yes but never a 4-0 game as it completely flattered Airdrie.

The full situation is made worse because of what happened last year, rightly so. But at no point was that ever like the Queen’s Park game. Sitting at Firhill it was like Queen’s Park would score with every single attack and dominated from the first minute. That’s not what happened yesterday. Luck was shining more on Airdrie yesterday with the two fortuitous goals. 
 

My biggest annoyance would be at the chances we wasted again with Morrison in particular being the biggest culprit. 

You're funny 😂😂♦️♦️

Reading a lot of the comments re Nesbitt, Morrison and McGuffie with interest and wanted to add that two 10 year old kids in my street were positive in their views last week that Nesbitt should have been subbed first and couldnt work out how he stayed on so long. Their main comment about Nesbitt was he moves his feet quickly but doesnt actually do anything. 

I'd also add that the Montrose game was the second game they had been at, the first game was the Hibs game.

They're 10 and can see Nesbitt's terrible
