Nicky Hogarth if 5th choice at Forest at best. He's behind Dean Henderson, Wayne Hennessey, Ethan Horvath (who has gone on loan to Luton) and Jordan Smith at least who are all first team squad members there. Hogarth isn't.

Also got George Shelvey who is in front of him in the pecking order.

Sorry I’m not sure what you mean by this? Also who is we? 

Perhaps the club phoned forest first. And by we i was wrongly viewing the fans and club officials as one harmonious collective

Thought you had inside knowledge as sounded more like a rhetorical question. 

Anyway I still don’t understand your point specifically to me, as I said that Forrest should have allowed us to announce it first.

Whether we requested it and they went against our wishes is a different matter. A phone call to express the club’s disappointment would be better than having a bit of a pop at them in public. Better yet leave it be and simply wait and  say following international clearance we can now confirm Nicky Hogarth has joined the club.

No worries. Never know if it’s good or bad to enjoy the sunshine before a late shift as really makes you feel like you can’t be arsed! On the other hand you feel like you need to make the most of it!

Don't mind them blocking people if it's outright abusive/personal but blocking your own fans for criticism is pathetic.


Unfortunately it’s an attitude that seems to be creeping into the club now. Criticism even when valid is forbidden.

100% agree if this is the case but this is the first I’ve heard of it. Surely someone on here must have first hand experience?

Playing devil's advocate (and my club social media mafia card), that tweet is definitely meant to be a humorous spin on the Marc Cucurella Brighton/Chelsea/Fabrizio Romano tizzy last week.

The Falkirk twitter admin should just stick to his strengths in that case because being funny clearly is not one of them.

Love it when fans question quality of third choice keeper at English PL club 🙈

Seem to recall that coming to us in loan only served to help the careers of a certain Tim Krul & that young laddie from Manchester by name of Kasper Scmeichal 

Be great for young Nicky if he was able to use this loan as a springboard for his career

Now some young Arsenal loanees aka O’Donnell, Gregg & Stokes wouldn’t go amiss 

 

 

McGlynn may prefer Martin starting tomorrow as Hogarth won't have had a great deal of training with us, tho on paper Peterhead at home is probably a good game for him to start.

As for third choice, he is well below that in the pecking order at forest, Christ a Scottish 3rd division team ain't getting that level of player on loan without blackmail or masses of cash.

If Hogarth starts as expected tomorrow then who’s going to be playing the part of Camille Oponga?

Or Davie Sinclair, I was told Myles had him up against the wall in the changing rooms, claimed that he would deliberately put backspin on the ball with pass backs to Myles

I'm having a difficult time imaging anyone in that dressing room having Davie Sinclair against the wall.

Myles had Sinclair up against the wall ? I find that hard to believe. I worked with a couple of Sinky’s mates years ago and he said the only 2 people in Scottish football he wouldn’t take on were Yogi and Shaun Dennis.

Nah, I'm not believing that for a second. Sinclair having Hogarth against the wall definitely but not the other way around

I found it hard to believe back then but it came from Myles brother.

He maybe had DS up against the wall for about 14 nanoseconds but found himself with a sore beak on the floor immediately afterwards.

Yeah maybe the initiator for a severe shoeing.
