Wanderings & Witterings

Falkirk played Greenock Morton in a 'must win' game at the Falkirk Stadium this afternoon. With three matches remaining in our league season, there was still some - even if slight - hope that we could avoid relegation or at worst have a chance of staying in the SPFL Championship through the play-offs.

However, defeat to the 'Ton this afternoon, coupled with other teams' results, left the Bairns in a really precarious position and most likely to be playing in a lower league next season. I would be lying if I said I wasn't utterly gutted both by the result and the performance. Being a football fan can occasionally be hard, and today was one of those hard days.

A few miles away as the game progressed, the Ineos petrochemical plant in Grangemouth was flaring gas from a couple of their chimneys (pictured above). The flames and smoke were visible for miles around.
It seemed to be a fitting metaphor for Falkirk's season: all our hopes and dreams going up in smoke.

One picks oneself up, dusts oneself down, and starts all over again. It's what we do.
