 Falkirk

I have been attending the Pars games for over 20 years. Today Falkirk are the worst I witnessed. McKinnon has a huge job on his hands.

Not an exageration to say they only looked a slight threat from long throw ins to Haber in the 2nd half.

Other than that they offered nothing. As easy a day for Durnan and Ashcroft as they will have in this league.

Thought their left back in particular looked miles out of his depth at this level; was willing Connolly to switch flanks in the second half to get at him.

Has to be the worst Falkirk team for some time.

Must be some turn over in playing staff - I didn't recognise one players name from last year. McKinnon has his work cut out!

They started terribly last season and managed to claw it back. Their team looks dramatically worse than last years though. It looks bleak for them, oh dear, how sad, never mind.

They got rid of a lot of players and replaced them with a worse standard of player. Unless they have a good January transfer window they are relegation fodder.

They must have been causing problems and it will have cost falkirk a few bob to get rid of them. They are now unable to sign for anyone until the window opens again so there's no way they've happily agreed to go without a decent pay off.

Lee Miller - went onto win promotion with Livvy - and Mark Kerr now at Ayr another two senior players who got the heave.

Replaced with second rate players from down south by Hartley and his recruitment guru.

Going the way it did for us when we tried similar and drafted in the likes of Huxford, Squires, Linighan & Gavin Johnson etc.

Not at the game today but if Falkirk are really that honking it really does not say a lot that we only managed 2 goals against them?

Not trying to be negative as a win is a win, but look at Hibs against a poor Hamilton team Aberdeen against a poor St Mirren team. Then us against the poorest Falkirk team some have ever seen we win 2-0 including a late 2nd.

A little perspective required me thinks!

Could have, Should have, etc etc

Hippo never scored a hatrick, we scored 2 goals against the worst team in the league by all accounts!

A team as VEE points out has been beaten by everyone except Alloa.

A game that should have had all the players gee'd up and determined to put in a performance!

If that is the standard you base your expectations on mate, fantastic.

Beating ICT or Ross County 2-0 and dominating the game for 90 minutes is where we need to be not beating the worst team in the league.

over papering cracks the?

Like I say perspective.

PS I get great pleasure from saying Falkirk the worst team in the league!

"You can always depend on RM or VEE to pr*kany balloons. Any time we win a game it's a lucky break or the opposition were rubbish."

I work on a simple principle - praise where it's due and vice versa.

We played well v Dundee United opening day, and even better against Hearts in the League Cup.

That apart, excluding yesterday, other performances have been less than impressive - we got the rub of the green v Partick who were very poor, likewise we huffed and puffed v Alloa who are also mediocre at best, and were well beaten in other matches by Ayr, ICT and Ross County.

We are what we are, an average mid table side after 8 league games played.

Falkirk were on the back of a win and have a new manager - so we were the first side to take them on when they had any sort of confidence or momentum. Added to that, it's the big derby game - for them especially.

The Pars went to their ground, on a relatively unfamiliar surface, and completely dominated. Nearly everyone that saw the game agrees.

Why anyone who didn't see the game wants to provide an alternative view on things based solely on the scoreline is beyond me.

Which alternative view is that ?

The Pars were clearly superior yesterday but many here say it's the worst Falkirk side in living memory.

A difficult opinion to argue with given their stats.

He's not correct. He's judging a game he's not seen based solely on the score.

The Pars were utterly dominant. I've seen us win and lose against Falkirk by 3 goals before but I've never seen one side so far ahead of the other than was in evidence yesterday.

We maybe could have scored more goals but that's an argument about being more clinical and not about being in complete control and never in danger of conceding. When it's your own team, you're always nervous of something bad happening but any neutral watching yesterday would have known that the result was never in doubt as soon as the Pars scored. If the 2nd had come earlier, more goals would have followed.

You can only beat what’s in front of you but if we want to make the playoffs we’re going to need to gets wins against the better teams in the league like Ross county ICT and Ayr in particular.

Big gulf in quality between Partick and failkirk and those teams though.

There are two ways of looking st the game;

1. Falkirk were poor
2. The Pars made them look poor

I think the later. It was a good team performance. Confidence is everything. Two wins will give the players confidence. The worse tbing you can do is say to someone that they are not good enough. Everyone in the team is good enough. Its how you play as a team that is important and thats what will win this league. Morale is a big factor too. Getting behind tbe team gives that bit extra to the players.its when the going gets tough that the team needs support so it was good to see at Falkirk.

It's not uncommon for a team coming off a bad run to be a little 'gun shy'. I would have been more concerned if we hadn't created the chances in the first place. Sure the game and result will give the players a big confidence boost. And don't underestimate what a little bit of swagger in the step can do for a team's performance.

The post from the guy called 'Creative Redemption' is one of the best rants I have read in a while. I hope he won't mind me copying and pasting it here as it is done more in admiration than in having a laugh at our rival's expense. Here it is...


<<Ok, this is embarrassing but I will admit what I did on Saturday after the game.
Myself and two others went and waited at the Main Stand to tell the players what we thought. We did try to get a few more of us, but to be honest, guys who have been to watch Falkirk for 30yrs + are just not interested, that's how disheartened they are.
Anyway, so first to come out was Lewis Kidd, who saw me once I shouted at him how poor team had been, he went back inside and didn't come back out the whole time I stayed. I know he didn't play, but he is as culpable as the rest, but wasn't interested in having "the chat".
Next out came Robson and Harrison. I told them it was completely unacceptable and were they happy with themselves. To be fair to the lads, they had the balls to stand and talk to me. Both said they were hurting, and they hated losing as much as the fans did. I told them their effort and commitment was zero, and they said they realised the performance today was unacceptable. I asked what they would do to fix it, and they just said try harder in training blah blah blah. At least they had a word, and spoke back.
Out next comes Captain Fantastic. I told him the same about lack of effort and the players not caring. He stopped half kind of squared up to me (not in a real aggressive manner I would add) and said did I really think the players hadn’t tried. I said yes. he said I was wrong and that they showed commitment out there. I laughed and told him he must be joking if he things that’s the best they can give. He said they gave their all. I told him that he, and the rest of them were a disgrace to the top. At that point, this internal nugget was ushering them all away from me and my two pals.
Big Leishman came out, and I asked him what he thought of the Falkirk team based on what he had seen of us in the past. He admitted we were poor, but said Ray would turn it around. Stood and had a bit of banter with him. For all the years of us hating him, he truly is a gent and a genuinely decent guy. We all knew this anyway.
Mr Totten didn’t say much, just said we were poor. I didn't have the fight to say anything more to him. It's not really down to him, is it?
Then the assistant Manager came out. Can’t remember his name. Told him they were a disgrace out there and all he said was we are trying to fix it.
To be fair, it’s not his and McKinnon’s fault at this time.
Shouted over to Fason he was a disgrace to the jersey. Again, the internal nugget just ushered him away.
I basically told all the ones who came out that years ago there would be 100 odd outside, but we are just that hopeless that nobody even cares to shout at them anymore. I also reminded them that this is the worst Falkirk Team I have ever seen, and we have made the worst start statistically since our inception in 1876. Whether that was true or not I'm not even sure, but we surely can’t be far off it??
We gave up and left after that. I felt a total knob shouting (not screaming I may add) at the players myself, but french connection it, I’ve had enough.
Apathy is rife at FFC, and even the fans do it now. Keyboard warriors galore, but nobody ready to actually do anything about it. Me included apart from a wee rant at the players on Saturday.
My summary? These players don't think they are as bad as they are. They really don't. Just let that settle into your head then think where will we be in 9 months time.......>>

In all my years of supporting the Pars I've never felt the need to hang around and have a pop at the players after a bad run of results. That would be counterproductive imo. Not to mention a bit immature, again imo.

You have to feel for the guy. We've all been there. It's part of the experience of supporting a football team and, as a fan, you feel so frustrated. The sad fact for Falkirk fans is that their players probably were trying their best.

Been reading that forum since they were relegated, other than a 6 month period when we were in the SPL (they had farid banging them in and sibbald running riot) it’s been a complete meltdown the whole time, every few months is the worst Falkirk team they’ve ever seen.

Not much inarticulate there.

The fans pay their hard earned cash to support a team so they are perfectly entitled to their opinions etc., as long as it's aimed in the correct direction and doesn't become personally abusive or offensive.

I'm certain a very large section of the Pars support would be in similar mindset if we'd lost 7 of 8 league games right from first day of league start, hadn't taken a point at home, or scored a home goal, and whose only win was over a just promoted part time team who are also without a league win.

I mind when Calderwood went 7 league games without a win (all defeats ?) but came through good in the end.

Some of you get in that sort of state after one defeat never mind 7

Aye, but JC didn't have DAFC.NET to contend with!

I totally get his frustration, disappointment and sheer disillusionment with their situation and I am sure his actions were well intentioned, but I genuinely wonder how he would feel if that was someone waiting outside his work looking to vent off.... Anyway, fair play to the players going out and speaking to him rather than ducking him though.

Concerning times for them, as I think the squad Hartley assembled had always looked a gamble and which clearly hasn't paid off - "either lunacy or a masterstroke" was how a Falkirk supporting colleague viewed it pre-season (clearly believing it was the former) - and with little wiggle room until January. If they can keep within touching distance of Alloa until then, then they might be able to drag themselves out of this mess, but that's assuming they have any kind of funds available.

Indeed he did, VEE. Yorkie "rewarded" JC with an extended contract after that 7th consecutive defeat and the Pars then went on an unbeaten run of around 8 games, IIRC. You couldn't make it up.



Not your average Sunday League player.
