Falkirk v Hearts - 8th of Feb

Recommended Posts

I've got my ticket but I didn't take my usual ST seat so I reckon that'll be up for resale on Thursday? Daft kick off time, live on the BBC and an expected pummeling doesn't make for a big crowd.

Just got to hope it's one of those days where everything goes right and we sneak through. I always regretted not going to the 3-2 cup game against Rangers at TFS (Mark Millar winner), I thought we'd get pummeled, was midweek and i had work the next day so I gave it a bye. Made a point of not missing these types of games since.

Perfect game to try out the 4231. Probably the formation that gets all our strongest players on the pitch at the same time.


100% this

Mutch

Doyle Durnan Buchanan Dixon
Gomis Miller
Todd Longridge Connelly
McManus

See you guys have punted 3000 tickets so far, is that a good show or not so much? Would've been good to have the ground full but if it were Hearts and the old firm I wouldn't want to be outnumbered, although the financial boost would probably be welcomed. 

Anyway, from the league table falkirk look similar to Airdrie. I'll go 3-1 hearts

It’s not brilliant, but not surprising either.

Also the financial gain argument is mince. An extra 1300 tickets at 15 quid a pop at best is about 19k, not exactly season changing money

That extra £19k would also be split with Hearts.

TV money more than makes up for anything lost at the gate. Home crowd/advantage will be needed I think. Very tough tie.

Good point, and with a few u18 tickets etc in there realistically looking at £8k. 

The financial benefits argument only works when you have a ground like killie/st Johnstone where you can comfortably fit 7 or 8k of the ugly sisters fans in without denying any home fans seats, and charge them 25 quid a pop. Then you’re talking

Any decent pubs that are welcoming to away fans?
The Mill Inn always welcomes outsiders with open arms.

According to the BBC saturday isn't too bad, it's Sunday that looks brutal.  Might be a bit wet but not too windy.

Now we have the "sent the dafty to a hovel" patter out the way, any real suggestions?

Behind the Wall or The Orchard - town centre

The Woodside - old mans pub just down from Falkirk high station

Quite surprised Falkirk have sold so little tickets for this game. Must be their biggest game in a long time as well

Obvious trolling apart, Hearts are just not that much of a big deal around here. Neither is the SC this season I'm afraid.

Our biggest games are the next 14 league games.
