The Falkirk FC Thread


Recommended Posts

I love Leon McCann. He works his arse off, gives us another dimension going forward and is nowhere near as poor defensively as some on here make out. It's also clear that he just gets it, too. A few more wins and he'll be thumping the badge and I for one shall be fucking lapping it up.

True, but I will be content with a good performance and no injuries.

Fans shouldn’t dismiss the importance of winning financially. Another chunk of cash qualifying and a possible bumper draw in the last 8 would help massively

Of course it would and I hope that happens but keeping the momentum going in the league is priority in my (non commercial) view.

Could a win on Tuesday coupled with lucrative draw v one of Old Firm mean an extra player as well as plugging planned deficit

Given we had 4 potential starters in Williamson, McKay, Watson & Kennedy still out missing & to return to match day squad does that spell the end for Sneddon, , Wilson & Ross 

Wilson not even on the bench yesterday so hopefully he’s one to leave.

Tbh I wouldn’t have Watson as a starter. I didn’t particularly rate him during his first spell and we now imo have at least 3 better options in that position.

Another 24k if we beat them. 

Plus half the gate I'd assume. Average it out at £10 for every punter you're looking at £15K of a 3000 gate?

Hardly a massive amount but it chips away at that £400k back hole.

And a win this week would also mean further minimum prize money of £80k (if we lost a QF tie) plus a likely TV date in the next round, especially if we avoid the lower Premiership/Championship clubs. 

£50k if we exit on Tuesday night.

If we got through then there is also the potential for a 6 figure some if we got a draw away to one of the Old Firm.

Watson can play right back though so he could potentially offer a more defensive option than Williamson who needs an injury free run

He is an aok option giving you 6 or 7s performances weekly and when he came in last season he started well and got dragged down to the level of others giving 5s or less. I wasn't gutted when he left I and  think he'd struggle to move our current first choice centre halves tbh who are more capable of better than Watson. A decent squad player now than a first choice of last season for me.

we have a surplus of centre halves when everyone is fit before Watson is fit, like Watson though it's handy some can cover various positions

Beating Dundee would be massive (if difficult) but no-one has mentioned it yet but regular home gates of near 4,000 mean around there are 1600 walk ins at between £11 and £18 (so let's say £14) that is around £22,000 per game plus food income. That is around £400,000 a year. 

It is not enough to cover the projected losses but it is a huge improvement and helps any short term issues of cashflow.

Be great if we could get it over 4,000 regularly.

I'll be amazed frankly if we get anywhere near through this season without having to get soft loans from somewhere. Beating Dundee and getting either of the old firm away though would make a massive difference.

On the subject of Dundee. Watched the televised game on Friday night and would say we have more than a chance. 

We play very similarly to Ayr (Alegria performing the Akinyemi role) and perhaps have a wee bit more threat in attack than they do so I would be confident facing them but they are at home so have the advantage.

It's winnable.

McGinn’s suspension could be a huge factor as he has been immense in that holding role plus his clear leadership on the park.

Will be interesting to see who is his replacement 🤔
