  1. Whenever I think of Elgin City I can always hear the noise of a helicopter approaching in the distance. Go figure.
  2. Cheers. Sounds like a much better watch. Unfortunately the games are coming thick and fast. £11 is a very reasonable price for the stream but I can’t afford to watch them all due to the frequency of matches just now. Trust me to pick the pish games to watch. Just glad to hear that the team did so well today after three poor performances . Hopefully a turning point.
  3. It will definitely taste a lot better tonight after seeing the result
  4. There is usually a link on the Cowden website to purchase the stream but it is missing at the moment. As you said just go bluebraziltv.co.uk and the option to purchase is there, Having unfortunately bought our last 2 home games I’m going to buy a bottle of red wine and a large packet of dry roasted instead.
  5. I’d be pleasantly surprised if we took anything against Stenhousemuir after watching our last two performances. Obviously we were going to lose tonight and I’d expected a worse beating. It seems like an age since we were fighting Stenny for promotion and the tides of time and change are turning against us. If we end up in the relegation play off this season we will be gone. We have come back from near death before so who knows.
  6. Very disheartening to watch that today. I’d thought that Cowden would apply at least the same level of application and desire they showed in the second half against Edinburgh City but sadly and frustrating that just wasn’t the case. That was one of the poorest Cowden teams I’ve seen in a long time and that really is saying something. Apart from Swan I saw very little quality throughout the team. Obviously we are limited in resources but you’d at least expect the players to be super motivated for such a crucial game. The constant use of the long throw which clearly wasn’t working showed that we were desperately hoping for a break of the ball instead of trying to create chances. Albion comfortably saw out the game and we only created one good chance which their keeper saved well. Our fate is very much in our own hands so hopefully we can dig out a few good results from somewhere. It’s a punishing schedule of games for all of the teams so a few upsets should be on the cards. Let’s just hope it’s not Brechin creating them.
  7. No sound on the live stream in the first half. Just a shame the picture didn’t crash as well .
  8. Enjoyed watching the live stream tonight, although the commentary did crash for a while at the start of the second half. What I did hear was pretty decent and insightful though. Some really bad errors and poor defending really cost us tonight. The defence had a bad night and the keeper will definitely want to forget this one too. Harvey Swan scored a real cracker and looked by far our best player. Renton definitely made a big difference when he came on and hopefully he starts on Saturday. Felt Cowden did play some decent football at times though on a bobbly pitch and we did hit the bar and have a chance cleared off the line. Edinburgh were undoubtedly the better side overall and should have a good chance in the promotion play offs. Gladly the other results went our way tonight but it’s a huge game on Saturday against Albion Rovers. I haven’t been able to see us play for a long time unfortunately and really glad we now have a live stream option and a chance to give the club a wee bit of money. Still think I saw enough from the team tonight to feel optimistic about our prospects on Saturday.
  9. I don’t see that as relevant as it was many years ago and I’m sure Elgin players don’t set out to injure our players in every game we play against them. What is relevant to me is that this was a bad tackle which resulted in a serious injury to a young player. I’m not wearing Cowden tinted glasses when I say that ,that tackle would have resulted in at least a yellow card under most referees. I don’t think it was malicious from what I can see in the clip but it was reckless and out of control.
  10. No doubt if a Cowden player had gone through an Elgin player like that and shattered his ankle their supporters take on the tackle would be different. Looks reckless to me at the very least. Could end the boys career.
  11. You won’t get a response because there is no substance or detail behind their “ opinion “. Levein comes across as a petulant child who insinuates that Cowdenbeath won’t get players on loan from Hearts again because of their stance on this. I hope he has a hit list of the other clubs who voted against the proposal to pass on to his granny Budge. This is the man who played a Scotland team without a striker so perhaps we should consider his views with that in mind. English clearly isn’t the brightest bulb in the box and has a pre prepared agenda which he can’t deviate from. The standard of journalism at BBC Scotland is in a worse state of decline than Scottish football if this is the best they have to offer. Donald Findlay may not be everyone’s cup of tea but i always find that he speaks with integrity, honesty and without fear. He is clearly an intelligent man and Cowdenbeath are extremely lucky to have him and the rest of our board. Of course there were losers in finishing the league early and we may well have had a shot at promotion through the play offs but democracy is about majority opinion. If the season were called void then other clubs like Raith Rovers ,Dundee Utd and Cove Rangers would have felt cheated.
  12. Sounds like a very fair point. With a few exceptions, most players do the best they can within the scope of their abilities. I suppose managers play a big part in getting the best out of individual players and utilising the talents they have. Obviously some managers have fewer resources and options to choose from and may have to make do with what they have. There’s always a debate about individual players and their abilities and best positions. He clearly did a good job at East Fife. We obviously didn’t see him play to his potential at Cowden. I wasn’t his biggest fan but I know others had a higher opinion of him which is fair enough.
  13. Kane was a very erratic player and prone to make very costly mistakes whenever he was in a Cowden shirt. Strangely the East Fife support really seemed to rate him after his transfer to them. It's weird how some players do better with some clubs than with others.
  14. Great post Drifter. I hope you get some work again very soon. Tough times indeed. Well said ronaldincoo also. Thousands of people have died and so many families have lost loved and cherished family members to this virus. Absolutely everything ( especially high level football ) pales into insignificance compared to that.
  15. Just caught up with Donald Findlay’s interview on the BBC Scotland channel yesterday and feel he was talking a lot f sense. Have to agree that league reconstruction is not something that lower league clubs were ever interested in and is not something that should be rushed into just to suit a few bigger clubs interests. Three bigger leagues would mean far more meaningless games and have a lot of teams having very little to play for towards the end of a season. It would stagnate the leagues whereas the current format encourages competition and gives many clubs the hope of the championship / promotion play offs or the fear of the drop in all of the lower divisions. I also agree with him saying that Any idea of playing SPL fixtures behind closed doors is stupid due to the health implications, potential drain on nhs personnel and the testing that would be required amongst the players. The government should follow France’s example and pull the plug on this nonsense now. We will all be lucky if we still have clubs to support at the end of this.
