Last straw for me today was when we had a corner and big Natt was out last defender now apart from being the biggest player on the park and we hit very high balls in from corners what if Stranrear thumped the ball over McCann with all due respect big guy is not winning a chase with any forward...

Carrick was the best of our front 4 and was subbed for Roy....I genuinely couldn't believe what I was seeing.

McKay is unsubbable for some unknown reason

Kerr was terrible, from the initial squad surely wedderburn or hawkshaw were better options?

MacDonald has been really good, maybe injured?

and talking about intial squad, why is Roberts dropped completely until Barrowman was ill? Something going on behind the scenes?

9 points from last 21. Raith next week.

Cameron must be on holiday ,thought he had settled the ship ,fair play to their keeper he had a few good blocks ,saves ,even with Ryan we seem to miss a lot of chances ,no doubt Ryan will come good ,get MacDonald and Roberts back in next week .

That's playoff form ... the relegation playoffs

We’re 5 points off the top and have been brutal, shows how open the league is

Two home games against Stranrear two games the manager makes his tactical changes... no win against them

Murray made an arse of the tactics today, he changed the formation just to fit ryan in, as much as i like him don’t mould the full team around one player. Please drop McKay for next game he’s worse than a man down, go back to the same team and formation when we were actually winning

He wont unless Andy can take a long throw.

His long throws don’t even make it past the first man, just stop playing him and bring in Nat just to try it out it can’t be any worse

The better long throws today came from their left back but like us they didn't score. The change in players and tactics looked good on paper but it certainly did not go well on the park. It was kinda back to the first few games of McKay at right back and although he broke through a few times in the first half there was nil from the 2nd half. He is a CB who does ok in a holding role and Kerr can't do what he does , so I think Murray got it wrong.  A top four spot seems the more likely this season but a second draw at home against Stranraer leaves most of us feeling down. At least we still have not lost 2 games in a row and East Fife also lost at Clyde. (Grasping at straws).

Agree with McKay but unless you have two good midfielders to do the work for Natt it is worst or was worst at the start of the season cause although he can pass a decent ball he is too easily bypassed

Thing is, Falkirk are beginning, slowly to hit form. I’d have taken play offs at the start mind you so I’ve no problem with them winning the league.
Having said that, the worry is we hit a golden six or seven games. Outside of that we’ve not been great or have been average.
And today was really poor (bottom of the league ffs). No hiding from the fact we need to up it.

Manager said he needed a rest. I think the manager needs a rest perhaps take few days off with a good book ..

Agree I think we need a more attack minded midfielder a no 10 type,  not enough goals coming from midfield,  apart from MacKay,  Roberts in his role needs to score more or he could find a permanent home on the bench, Hope Ryan starts after all that's why we signed him....   After all the horse trading in the past few weeks and still to come,  I don't really see any change throughout the league, no team has really strengthened enough to push on,  

I believe Roberts has a recurring injury that's why he is not playing.

I think Carrick might have had an injury but how Roy gets a game I will never know touch like an elephant he is quick but just open the gates he has never been a success in any of the clubs he has played with.
