The Falkirk FC Thread

Hetherington was my MOTM tonight. He’s took some amount of stick from me and everyone else (quite rightly btw) but he like everyone else was outstanding. McKay again, was excellent. Where has he been? Defensively I think we are sound with who we have currently with Henderson, Donaldson, Williamson and Watson to come back in. I could go through the full team but that’s what we’ve missed. Heart, desire and application. Let’s just hope this is us turning a corner.

Good to see all the positives after returning from hols. Catching up on players/managers interviews and we’ve went from howling last game to outstanding in a few days.
Didn’t see the game but from comments like “ best we’ve played in four years” is really pleasing to say the least.

For me we’re critically short of at least two still, and hope that the players who downed tools last season and who I've criticised make me eat my words, only to happy to……..

McGlynn knows this division and looks like he’s already got you playing the kind of football that got us positive comments.

Will always be regarded as the best manager we’ve had since Jimmy Nicol in the 90’s by the vast majority of our fans.

That was fun - fairly standard Falkirk vs Hibs theatre. Didn’t see that coming really. Similar levels of organisation to Saturday but just up a gear in pretty much every way.

Everyone in the team put in a shift and you could easily praise all of them one by one.  Wee Leon McCann was brilliant I thought. He was absolutely everywhere from start to finish. Morrison also did well, not just offensively but defensively. Absolutely busting a gut to get back and help the team defend. 

Reality is that it’s a league cup group game and we still have two games to go, and it would be classic Falkirk to go make a mess of things against Clyde or Bonnyrigg, but it felt great to have something positive on the park for the first time in about 3 years.

Thing is.. fans get a lot of stick for not knowing the game, by arseholes 'in football'.

We do. Much better than they think.

The reason we were utterly unimpressed by the likes of Sheerin and Rennie from the second they were announced is because we knew they'd likely be fucking shit. Don't care how many powerpoints they produced or 'be the best version of yourself' books they've read - it screamed bad appointment. 

The reason we were so positive about McGlynn from day one is that we knew he had it. Exactly the right man for the job and immediately gave you confidence we would be well coached and organised.

After being in hospital for 5 days that was just the medicine I needed to cheer me up,we had fight we had desire,I feared the worse when Nesbitt missed but he never let his head drop and that showed.

What a difference when we have a manager who can actually coach players,we may not have the best squad yet but last night we had hopefully the start of something we all need.

A team of winners.

Genuinely don't want to get carried away but it's really really hard. Hope this isn't a one off and we can keep up the intensity and hard work all season. 
 

Hopefully we can get a couple more results in the cup and allow McGlynn to bring in a few more players.

 

Big Sean Mackie btw

If we had brought in a kid like Yeats into the team over the last few seasons he would have been slaughtered on the pitch, that to me also shows the difference already.

I'm hoping a good start also helps us in the loan market, as I’m sure for most teams it wouldn’t have been a clamour to send to our place.

It's the kind of result and performance that will make players want to come play for us, the way we played football was brilliant. One of my favourite parts about last night was the amount of times players tried to turn McGinn only to be bounced back 5 yards from where they came.

Two strikers, one centre midfielder, a winger and a versatile defender at least until January please Mr McGlynn.

Have said it previously but really really like Mackie as the left sided centre half, maybe unfair based on one 90 minutes but I think McCann is the better fullback between the two and Mackie suits being allowed to step into midfield. That tackle anaw btw.

Currently I think the team we seen last night is our best, I'd like to see it continue but given Donaldson is still to come back from injury and Henderson suspension I don't think it will.

Hetherington was absolutely brilliant last night, by far and away his best game in a Falkirk top. The role  he was playing last night suits him far more than the role he was playing last season. Pleasing.

See Henderson can play in the middle of the park so I wouldn't be adverse to that. Need to find a way of getting all our better players on the park at the same time, Mccann showed last night what me and @ShaggerG have been raving about like lunatics for the last few months.

I missed that as I had gone to the toilet. Heard the roar and genuinely thought we had scored, came back and there's a hibs player on his back on the ground. From what I heard he nailed the boy?
