I wonder if the audio of the game will be on here
http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/console/radioscotland/

what about here
http://www.setanta.com/uk/News/Football/PageMode/Fixtures/

I've already posted the Radio Scotland link WC - they broadcast all the SPL games on different frequencies with the most 'attractive' game staying on the main frequency - Hearts play Rangers tomorrow  :-\

In the UK the BBC's SPL site carries audio links to all the games but I don't know if it works abroad.

For £4.99 (49 TTD) Falkirk TV streams the game live to viewers outside the UK.

any live links/stream for this match ??..please ???

I guess you guys know how to go about getting UK channels in T&T (or where-ever you happen to be) so hopefully this will be of some use:

A replay of the entire match will be shown 'As-Live' from 8pm (UK time) on Saturday night on BBC-Alba (Scots language channel!) this is on Sky channel 168 and Freesat Channel 110 - so if any of you guys are a bit techy maybe you can get it online or by satellite !?!

Each SPL game is available on Radio Scotland which you can get online (in the UK anyhoo) from the BBC's SPL page - http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/scot_prem/default.stm and abroad from BBC I-Player http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/playlive/bbc_radio_scotland_fm/  this may not carry the Falkirk game though.

Good Luck - I'll miss the game myself due to work  :-\

Hughes tips Latapy for coach job  
 
John Hughes says he would like to see Russell Latapy stay on at Falkirk and become a coach at the club.

The 40-year-old's contract runs out at the end of the current season but Hughes says the Trinidad and Tobago star has a future in management.

"I think he's been one of the top foreign players in Scotland," said the Falkirk manager.

"He's in the top three or four, that's for sure, when you include the Laudrups and all these guys."

Hughes also says the former Hibs and Rangers midfielder is one of the most gifted players he has ever worked with.  He still has a massive part to play at Falkirk, and at the end of the season we'll sit down and say 'where do we go from here?'

The club is holding a special 'Russell Latapy day' on Saturday at the league match against Hibernian to give both sets of fans the opportunity to pay tribute to the player on the occasion of his 40th birthday.

"Five years ago, he was going to retire, and I was a very lucky man to get him to come to Falkirk," said Hughes.

"Some of the stuff he's done at this club has been absolutely outstanding.

"I was fortunate enough to play with him at Hibs and he was just outstanding there too.

"He's brought so much to the club, and any tribute he's getting is richly deserved.

"We've been friends for a long time ever since our Hibs days and we have a great respect for each other."

Hughes was also keen to point out that Latapy's involvement at Falkirk need not come to an end when his contract expires next year.

The Falkirk manager suggested he would like to sit down at the end of the season and discuss a future role for Latapy at the SPL club.

"I can't speak highly enough of him," said Hughes.

"He's not finished yet. He still has a massive part to play at Falkirk, and at the end of the season we'll sit down and say 'where do we go from here?'".

"If Russell wants to go somewhere else or pursue something else and there's nothing here for him, then we'll leave on the best of terms."

Latapy was typically modest when asked about the praise being heaped upon him by his manager and insisted he would not considered his future until the end of the current season.

"John has encouraged me to play for the last five years," said Latapy.

"When I got the call from him to come to Falkirk, I was contemplating calling it a day.

"He offered me the opportunity to continue playing, but to also gain experience in the coaching and managerial side of the game and it was an eye-opener for me.

"I think that has also helped me to continue to play because you understand the game a lot better when you get into the coaching side.

"You understand how the whole team operates, and that has prolonged my career.

"At his time my energies are everything to do with Falkirk until the end of the season, and then I will sit down with all of the parties and we'll decide exactly what is going to happen."

Football / Latas - Bairns Ace Won't hang Up Boots
« on: August 08, 2006, 12:32:12 AM »
Our Euro Style Will Let Me Play On Til I'm 40
By Anthony Haggerty (Daily Record)


BAIRNS ACE WON'T HANG UP BOOTS - Latapy is happier than ever at Falkirk

RUSSELL LATAPY should be winding down his football career but the 38-year-old insists he can play on and on.

The little Magician ought to be passing on tips and tricks to a team in the lower divisions full of starry-eyed hopefuls this season.

However, Latapy is defying both time and logic as he continues to dazzle his SPL opponents every week with Falkirk.

For those who believe Latapy can't still kick it or hack it at the top they should watch a DVD of the Bairns' first two games this season.

There wasn't a better player on the park in either game but a modest Latapy insists it's all down to the style his team plays.

And he reckons it will allow him to play on a bit longer and even turn out in the top flight when he's 40.

He said: "John Hughes is trying to get Falkirk to play a passing game and that suits my style as it is a more European type of football.


"That is the reason I'm having fun and I'll continue to play as long as my body allows me to."


It was Latapy's intention to retire after this summer's World Cup finals with Trinidad and Tobago before changing his mind.


He insists he would never cheat his manager or the Falkirk fans but as long as he's making a positive contribution he'll stick around.


Latapy said: "Finishing after the World Cup would have been the perfect way to end my career.


"But Falkirk don't have the biggest squad and I'm still needed to do my bit which I'm happy to do.


"Falkirk don't want to just bring jersey-fillers to the club. We want quality players and until we can do that I'll have to play on.


"My body will tell me when it is time to go and I've said that the past four seasons. If it allows me to then maybe I will be okay to continue playing until I am 40.


"It is a lot easier to have fun when the team you play for are enjoying a decent run of results.


"It gets more difficult when you are struggling every week as it is a lot harder to go out express yourself.


"I am not scared to give football up as I will always play the game - even if it is on a Sunday or just with my mates.


"But I know I can still do it at this level so why give up? I truly love the game and I am still trying to make a positive contribution.


"As long as I can help the team and bring on the youngsters then I will do that.


"I would never cheat myself or the team - especially Yogi."


Hughes was the man who handed Latapy the chance to coach at Falkirk when he quit Tannadice two seasons ago and was about to be lost to the game altogether.


Latapy revealed he gets a real buzz from coaching - almost as much as he does from playing.


He has even uprooted his young family from Newton Mearns and moved to Falkirk in an effort to get closer to the action.


Latapy said: "I thought that when I left Dundee United I was going to quit football altogether but Yogi gave me the chance to continue playing and gain some experience in coaching.


"I am really enjoying the coaching aspect at the moment. I take the first team, the reserves and the kids and I'm loving it.


"I want to continue coaching here and I know Yogi is currently busy trying to get players in who will take the club forward.


"When he does that I might decide it's time to concentrate on the coaching but I can still hack it at this level.


"For the past three seasons I have been travelling 75 minutes every day to get to training which works out at two-and-a-half hours added on to your day.


"I thought that it would be much easier and in case of emergencies if I stayed in Falkirk - especially as I now have a young baby.


"I am only 10 minutes away from the stadium now. I roll out of bed and by 9.30am I have had breakfast and walked the dog and I'm ready for training."


He may be 38 but there's plenty of life left in this old dog yet.

Maybe Real Madrid sign him ...  :devil: o nah boy, is Barcelona who was courting him.

I feel Falkirk is a very hard club to get along with and hate players to represent T&T, John Hughes can be a real ass when he ready. But in all honestly Theobald should have handle it much better even if he right.
Falkirk fans are pretty much split up the middle when it comes to Hughes .. he has brought us reasonable success and has a decent young side with a great attitude but sometimes his lack of tatical awareness lets him down , he can't seem to be able to change things when required and his man-management skills are diabolical - having said that I feel Bleeder might be more at fault in this instance .

Ned,

what is the perception of trinis not named latapy at Falkirk?  it seems as if Collin Samuel, Rahim and now Theobald have all failed to live up to expectation.

Latas is a God and it's a real privilege to have a man of his stature at the club . end of .

Sammy was an exciting signing , he played good attacking football which culminated in his hat-trick against Hearts in the cup , he seemed to go a bit lazy after that , like he believed all the hype and it went to his head - the club have since stated that they didn't look after him properly , they just got him accomodation in the town and expected him to cope so far away from home . His move was pretty much welcomed by most fans but he is still fairly well liked .

Rahim was never given a decent chance .. although I seem to remember he was away with T&T quite a lot , I liked him but I guess things just weren't to be .

Bleeder ! I need to know the facts , I introduced myself to him a couple of times and he was a decent guy , there were a few times I thought he should've got a game for Falkirk but the reality is we have an excellent midfield at the moment .. a couple of good young Irish U21 Internationals , seems to me like he was disillusioned with how things had worked out and after some time at home decided he'd had enough ...

what's this about $1m ? did he get a bounus for the WC ?

he made my proud as hell when he played in Germany though , big up Bleeder , good luck to you fella !

Football / Theobald leaves Falkirk.

Theobald leaves Falkirk.
Falkirk Website.
[/size]

Falkirk Football Club have by mutual agreement with Densill Theobald decided to terminate his contract with immediate effect. Densill had asked to be given the opportunity to pursue his career elsewhere. Unfortunately the signing of Densill has not worked as well as we had hoped and the club feels that it is in the best interests of both parties to move on. Head Coach John Hughes said" Densill contacted us and intimated that he wished to pursue his career elsewhere. We decided to accept Densill's request and wish him all the best in his future.
The Trinidad and Tobago international told the SPL side he did not want to return after appearing at the World Cup finals, claiming he can double his salary away from Westfield.
The Bairns have granted the 24-year-old his wish after the former Caledonia AIA playmaker, who signed in January on an 18-month deal, failed to make a single first-team appearance for the club.
Hughes explained: "We have got plenty of midfielders but what it does mean is that it frees up Densill's wages and we will have a look.
"We are constantly looking but it is the same scenario, I will not bring in anyone that is not going to bring something to the club.
"I am not going to bring in jersey-fillers. If I do, it will be young guys that are hungry to go and succeed."
Hughes has a good record of bringing young players in to develop, selling some of them on for a sizeable profit - such as forward Darryl Duffy, who left for Hull in January.
He continued: "We have brought in young guys, we have brought them into this environment.
"Darryl Duffy is probably the perfect example, we gave him that stage because it is a great stage."
Hughes admits he had hoped Theobald would have finally made the breakthrough to the first team this term, but is determined to quickly put the player's departure behind him.
He added: "If there is any disappointment it is because I felt this would have been a big year for him, but it's not to be so we need to move on.
"I don't know if the World Cup has gone to his head, you will have to ask him."

anyone like to see his goal ..... Latapy Free Kick¬†  ;)

haaaaa...... Let Falkirk let either of them go nuh... they wont be able to cope in the top division without them... not a single phorkin chance.
we survived last season wih Bleeder in the reserves and Latas with one eye on the WC  ;)

24
what an interesting topic ...

in my ignorance I have no idea what level San Juan Jabolteh are at , on their day Falkirk can compete with the best teams in Scotland , on others they can struggle against teams from the lower leagues ...

if we use the fact that Bleeder and Latas are not first choice players at FFC where does that leave the debate ?

Football / Re: Falkirk set to throw book at AWOL Theobald.
« on: July 28, 2006, 12:33:58 AM »
BAIRNS' THEO INSISTS HE'S NOT GONE AWOL
DENSIL THEOBALD last night blasted back at boss John Hughes' claims that he has gone AWOL from Falkirk. The midfielder insists the club agreed to let him go to his Trinidad homeland to recover from a knee injury he picked up on World Cup duty.

Speaking from the island's capital, Port of Spain, Theobald said: "I haven't gone missing from Falkirk. I am injured and still trying to work my way back to full fitness. "I saw the Trinidad national team doctor after the World Cup and he told me the best course of action was to rest for four weeks.
 
"Right away I phoned Falkirk to tell them the situation and I asked for special permission to stay back in Trinidad to recover and get myself focused again.
 
"I'm near the end of my recovery period and plan to come back to Scotland in the near future. I don't have a set date for my return but it will be soon and I hope the club will be understanding about my situation."


seems both parties have different accounts of the situation , surely with Latapy acting as a go between everything should've been crystal clear¬†  ???

ah love it !
