The Falkirk FC Thread


Recommended Posts

I pay £10 a month to the FSS and I probably could afford to pay more but now is not the right time. In the same way that I have said to my wife,  no way am I booking a holiday for next year until I gauge how this current UK financial cluster f**k develops, then I won’t be committing money out elsewhere. Things are just too risky at the moment, I’m in a privileged position and I know for some the choice is way more stark, heating the house or feeding the family. Badly worded statement that isn’t taking account of the financial plight many fans find themselves facing.

That statement is extremely poor. Not sure what they hoped for it to achieve but trying to provoke fans in to spending more money because it’s their duty to carry the burden of mismanagement was badly judged.

Strikes me as a bit of a 'last throw of the dice' statement. They've tried encouraging and cajoling and have decided to try desperation.

This, imo. Some supporters won’t like the cold hard facts that more investment, including from a large number of our big support (which is not reflected in FSS numbers), is desperately needed. The board have tried to be nice but this really does strike me as a final throw of the dice statement

The cold hard facts are there is a cost of living crisis sweeping the country and getting worse by the day. For the board to then put out that statement and try force supporters to pay more money to the club each month is absolutely shameful. Going into winter where it’s a genuine concern around the country if some can afford to heat their houses is not the right time to get the begging bowl out. Completely unacceptable.

Desperate statement in every sense.

We appear to be financially fucked but then so is the entire country.

Really don’t see this persuading anyone to part with cash at a time when disposable income is becoming a thing of the past.

I’ll certainly continue with my FSS contribution but the tone of this statement pisses me off.
