Episode 4 of Falkirk Daft out now 🎙💙. John is responsible for the title 😂

 

Another great listen/view, though the FC Edinburgh lads voice put me to sleep and I've still got the last 20 mins to view/listen to.....

Bookmarked for when I can't sleep 😶

Are Alloa one of the poorer sides? Managed 7/12 points from Falkirk last season, finishing above you in the table.

We for sure had woeful managers last season and I'd bet we had a much worse squad than your one that finished 7th in league one.

It for sure had been the worst I've seen Falkirk FC in my time

Any team that finished below the worst ever Falkirk side should be ashamed of themselves.

It isn’t what he is meant to be as he can’t get about the pitch to play box to box. At Alloa he played McGinn’s role. 
 

No he didn't. At Alloa, Hetherington's game was all about mobility; pressing aggressively, ball winning, covering midfield runners etc, the role he seems to be playing for Falkirk now under McGinn (as Captain Chugwash and Russ have spotted and explained). Flannigan played McGinn's role.

Now that we've changed our entire starting 11 - bar the two fullbacks & Morrison - Nesbitt and Hetherington look just as poor as they did previously.

I don't really buy the positional argument tbh, you're either good enough or you're not. Guys like Muirhead, McGhee and Vaulks could all fill in at CB, FB and midfield when required. Equally hoping that Jamie Wilson will turn in to a good wingback because he's utterly pish up front just isn't going to happen.

I had hoped that a combination of a competent manager and playing in a better team would see them do ok but it's not looking good at the moment

Both have now played over 30 games for the club in total, Nesbitt has done well in maybe a third of them tops (mainly when he's been able to play to his strengths of being fast and having a decent first touch), and I'd struggle to count good performances from Hetherington on one hand.

Once McGlynn figures out his best team I doubt either of them will be regular starters

I would say also I used to tear my hear out a la Falkirk fans about Hetherington giving the ball away in seemingly simple situations although once the analysis was done on the games though you generally find out his stats show he wins it more than he loses it.

Not sure if that still holds true these days but it certainly was during his time with us.

Put a word in with Ricey and take him back, I feel sorry as he's genuinely giving 110% every game he just doesn't offer anything. Even when we played against Stranraer in preseason he was the exact same and the Stranraer team were honking. The Hibs game was the one exception as he actually looked to be a footballer that night, then against Bonnyrigg it was back to not offering us anything.

Charlie Gilmour off to Cove on loan, still hoping McGlynn's planning on using the bairn for life money to bring in another centre midfielder on loan.

Could that potentially have already been spent after having to bring Hogarth in to cover PJ’s injury?

Hopefully not, obviously doesn't help when 4 of your 12 new signings are out injured. When Henderson's back he gives you another option in the middle of the park.

Still expecting some movement with maybe two out, and one in.

Given Ross, Sneddon, Wilson and Malcolm haven't really played you'd hope they'll be trying to get a move elsewhere at the moment.

It'll be very interesting to see what position we look to bring another player in for.

Must have been at different games to me. 😉

Young Lennox Walker is scoring for fun at Bo'ness. Good signing if he continues to develop

Was at the Bo’ness game against Stirling Uni a few weeks ago and the boy looks a player. Always looking to take his man on and be positive with the ball. Had a couple of decent efforts and was one of the best players on the park for the first hour before falling out the game which you would expect with a young boy. If he keeps up his form I’d be looking to put him out to a higher level in January with a few to bring him into the squad next year.

Was having a wee think this evening and ken a midfielder I miss? Tom Taiwo. He wouldn't have put up with any of the shit in League One x

What a boy Tommy Tackle was. Wee bit injury prone but always done some graft in midfield and of course loved a slide tackle. Even done a solid job for us on the right of midfield.

Loved a goal against the **** and the pars tae. How can you no love him for that
