  1. Artificial pitch.... Livingston and Hibs will probably be looking to protect their grass as we head into winter. Falkirk might be okay with their artificial being used twice in 24 hours though.
  2. I reckon they're probably about East Kilbride standard. They turned over the clear leaders of League 2 on their own patch today. Not to be sniffed at.
  3. Assuming that Tynecastle is ready (Hearts are due to play Killie there on 5/11) then that would be the obvious choice but it wasn't mentioned as an option for the Celtic game. Maybe Hearts didn't want LTHV playing there.
  4. When LTHV were a game away from playing Celtic in the 5th round a couple of years back their chairman said the SFA would not have allowed them to play the game at home. Very limited facilities and no covered areas: more a public park than a football ground. Because of this they were denied entry to the Lowland League (which they'd stand a pretty good chance of winning apparently). If the Celtic game had happened, seemingly their 3 options were Easter Rd, Livingston or Falkirk. When we're due to play them (Nov 18th) Hibs and Livi are at home and Falkirk host Dundee Utd on the 19th. Be interested to see where the tie ends up being played. Possibly Paisley!
  5. Dumbarton v St Mirren 14th Oct

    Points collected in the opening quarter: 99/00 - 18 05/06 - 19 17/18 - 21
  6. Dumbarton v St Mirren 14th Oct

    McCart and Hilson injured?
  7. Lewis Morgan

    According to today's Daily Express, Celtic have had Lewis watched "extensively" in the past few weeks.
  8. That's us 6 straight league wins at home. That is the best run of home form since Fergie's team won 8 straight (Oct '76 - March '77). The league-winning team of 67/68 and the cup-winning team of 1926 also managed 8 in a row. Conveniently, if we won every home league game this season then we'd beat the (unbelievable...) 18 home wins on the bounce which occurred between April '35 and March '36. Another wee stat is we're now 11 home games unbeaten in the league. That's the best run since MacPherson's team went 17 unbeaten through the whole of '05.
  9. St Mirren V Brechin City 30th September

    Youthful defence for us again but the boy McLennan up front for them, on loan from Aberdeen, is just 17.
  10. St Mirren Targets for the Season

    18 points from the first quarter of 99/00. 19 points from the first quarter of 05/06. We should be in that sort of territory again this season.....
  11. St Mirren V Brechin City 30th September

    In 12 league and cup games this season Brechin haven't kept a single clean sheet. Some pretty ropey defending against Dunfermline yesterday: their full back was getting to the byline at will in the second half and set up 2 goals from crosses. Worth keeping an eye out for Kalvin Orsi up front for them. Never made an appearance for us, but was an unused sub in the 5-1 Kyle McAllister Spartans' game.
  12. QoS Game

    Would have taken that beforehand! Smith (21), Baird (21), McCart (20) and Stelios did well against Queens' wily forward line aided by a stellar performance in front of them from McGinn. Going forward, I think it's fair to say that in more games than not we'll get a goal out of the Morgan-Reilly-Smith triumvirate. Only downer is the Josh Todd injury - he's apparently dislocated his shoulder again. He looked fit, has obviously performed in training and played well in the first half.
  13. Falkirk sack Houston

    http://www.falkirkfc.co.uk/management-team-depart/ MANAGEMENT TEAM DEPART Falkirk FC has come to a mutual agreement with Peter Houston, James McDonaugh and Alan Maybury that will see the football management team leave the club with immediate effect. In the interim period, Technical Director, Alex Smith will take charge of the first team, assisted by senior players, Mark Kerr and Lee Miller and Academy Director, Michael McArdle. The Board will take time to recruit the right management team to lead the club forward. The Club wishes to thank Peter, James and Alan for the enormous amount of work they have put in to improving the football department at The Falkirk Stadium over the past three years. Under their stewardship Falkirk FC has enjoyed some memorable occasions, including the 2015 Scottish Cup Final and two successive runners-up finishes in the Ladbrokes Championship. Peter Houston, commented: “I’d like to thank all the players and the backroom staff for their undivided support through the last three and a bit years. I also have to mention the office staff and ground staff at the club for all their backing and the Board of Directors for their support. We are disappointed with the start to the season and the board and I have come to a mutual agreement that to get the club moving again it is best that someone fresh is brought in. It has been a decent three or so years; there have been some real highlights, including reaching the Scottish Cup Final and finishing second, but we just fell short of the goals that we all hoped we could achieve. It wasn’t down to lack of effort and I’ve got to thank the players again for all they have put in. I must also mention the supporters. It has been a wee bit rough recently, but through the last three years they have given great support to the club. The fans have been magnificent. Finally, I’d just like to wish the club the very best moving forward. I hope whoever comes in can give the club the success it deserves and that we have been striving for over the last number of years.” Margaret Lang, Chair of Falkirk Football Club, said: “We are all extremely disappointed that we haven’t been able to progress forward this season and as a result we have come to a mutual agreement with Peter, James and Alan. I have nothing but admiration for the job all three have done for our club and wish them the very best in the next chapters of their careers. We will now work to recruit the best possible management team to get the club back to winning matches, climbing the Championship table and moving towards the Premiership.”
