    Yes you can. Thats why I wait for games and performances before making my mind up...that philosophy is foreign to some though

    Paul Paton signed

    Reminds me of the Alex Burke signing under McIntyre. He was slated at first but by the end most sensible people realised what he brings the team. Hopefully Paton does something similar.

    Playing squad 2019/20

    In fairness Crawford did try and make changes with the personal he has. One example was the way he asked the players to press more up at Tanadice than others games. I'm sure he talked about it in pre/post match comments. He did also try and make subs quicker than AJ from the games I have seen.

    On the face of it we are going from a coach who has been part of the Scotland set up to a manager at Dundonald so going by that I can see why people might have some reservation if it's a good appointment. Meltdowns though? Nothing like giving the guy a chance.

    Kelty Hearts

    Followed Kelty since I was wee and its been an interesting journey for them since then. I kinda know Dean but know his father a bit better and he is a Kelty man through and through in fairness. In saying that it has all the hallmarks of ending in tears or something dodgy going on from the outside. Hopefully not obviously. Looking at the accounts at companies house for CC they do have pretty sizeable cash in the bank. In addition I know they have done the cash plus apprenticeship type offer to players (Hubby being the obvious one). They are spending on infrastructure too, with grand plans for more stands/facilities so its not just the playing squad they are spending money in £100ish a season ticket doesn't sound bad tbf

    Supporters' Council Thursday 16 May

    Constructive feedback to the board. The problem with people like this is they like to hammer home their issue/opinion but don't really seem to take into account consequences or come up with thought out solutions, they also don't want to engage and have dialogue with the people trying to run things because they only care about being entrenched in their own views. Theres also an element of self entitlement about it all and they know in the end they won't have to deal with the consequences anyway.. I have mates that are the same I have given up trying to talk to them, its a pointless exercise and I have better things to spend time on Sack the board? Ok then who takes over? What would the new structure of the club be? Are you going to stand up and convince shareholders to vote for your intended new board members? Are these new board members going to be paid, what will the decision making process be at different levels of the club? These are the very basic questions that come with changing a board right at the off for a company that's turnover is probably near the 7 figure mark in a pretty competitive and volatile industry where setting budgets are impacted by a bad result in one game. There will be 100 more consequences you will have to deal with if you "sack the board". Have the board got everything right, no they haven't, of course they won't they are human beings no one would get everything right but overall they are doing decent in what is a difficult environment.

    Falkirk, should we sympathise?

    I think you will find our very own @Keyser Soze was voted the 4th best poster ever on pie and bovril...I have no idea when this vote went ahead because I didn't vote in it.

    McLeish to be sacked as Scotland Manager

    Yup, I agree there's a catalogue of things that have contributed
  10. https://www.falkirkfc.co.uk/2019/05/10/club-statement-8/ "Margaret Lang has stepped down as Chairman of Falkirk FC. Following a horrific season which saw the club relegated to League One, a full root and branch review of the board, management and governance of the club will be carried out. The club will seek an independent interim Chairman to lead this review. The interim chairman will advise on future board structure and appointments, and management processes. All stakeholders in the club will be consulted in this process. The Board thanked Margaret for her commitment and hard work on behalf of the club during her period as Chairman. Margaret will stay on the board of directors. Further board changes will follow the board level review. Martin Ritchie has confirmed he will stand down from the board in July, at the same time he resigns from the SPFL board. Everyone at the club apologises to our supporters for getting us into this mess. Our support has been incredibly loyal throughout the season and we would like to thank them for sticking by the team. The club cannot take this for granted. Relegation to League One must be regarded as an opportunity to rebuild the club both on and off the field. Our immediate goal is to regain our Championship status and use that as a springboard for an assault on promotion to the Premiership. This will not happen without changes. It also requires the continuing support of all of our supporters and sponsors. The board will continue to pursue options for fan and community involvement and ownership as a means to help finance a promotion push and to safeguard the long-term future. Whilst there have been conversations with some potential new investors, these remain at an early stage. The club cannot rely on outside money to fund next season’s campaign but are confident that we can generate the resources required to get back to the Championship in one season. Thank you again to all our supporters and sponsors, and we look forward to seeing you next season." Apparently she was crying at a supporters event this week. TBH the falkirk thread on pie and bovril is glorious.

    McLeish to be sacked as Scotland Manager

    Overall not qualifying is a big problem..We havnt seen money from a tournament since 1998 which means our governing body can't invest in our youth in the same way that countries that do qualify. Dire stuff just now and pretty mental how the SRU has a bigger turnover than the SFA

    New pitch.

    Has it not be replaced a couple of times since then?

    McLeish to be sacked as Scotland Manager

    Less than a month until the next qualifier and must only a be a couple of weeks until a squad is to be announced. It doesn't look as though a new manager will be in place before then.

    Season Tickets

    My games have been a bit sporadic this season especially towards the end of the season for various reasons. I think I will still get mine and my sisters season ticket again this year but will be weighing up if its worth it after the season is done.
