May assumes villain status

Last updated : 11 February 2010

Falkirk manager Eddie May believes he has gone from hero to villain in the space of a week after the Bairns fell back to the bottom of the league with defeat to Kilmarnock. Despite a bright start by the hosts, May's side had nothing to show for their efforts as Craig Bryson struck a 58th-minute winner to move the Ayrshire outfit five points clear of the bottom. A bumper crowd crammed into the Falkirk Stadium after admission prices were reduced and the home supporters made their feelings known at the final whistle. However, May insists he will not be paying too much attention to their reaction after being acclaimed following last week's win in Aberdeen, Falkirk's first at Pittodrie in over 50 years, that lifted them off the foot of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League. May said: "They are allowed their opinions, they see things. It does not upset me, football is an emotional game and people are allowed their opinions. "I think I was a hero last week and a villain this week so I will just take it as it comes. It's a long season, anybody that thought it was going to be an easy season needs to come into the real world."
