  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Felt it was a very good win today. Albion looked like a decent side and they worked hard and didn’t give us much space. In times gone by we would have lost a goal towards the end of that game but gladly not today. The stand in keeper looks extremely good , so well done to Cowden for getting him in. Both he and the Rovers keeper pulled off cracking saves.
  7. First Cowdenbeath game I have been able to make for quite a while sadly but well worth the wait. I was very impressed by the quality of some of our play and we always looked dangerous in attack. Great to see the defence working so hard and looking well organised as well. Threw themselves into blocking tackles and fought for every ball. A mention for the keeper as well who looks like a bit of a character. What a fantastic reflex save he made with his leg from a deflected shot, leading to us going up the other end and scoring. Needs to work on his kicking perhaps but he commanded his box well . Liked the look of him and he got a cuddle from our physio after being elbowed in the face by a Stenny player ( How romantic ) Hard to judge the team from one performance and perhaps Stenny had a bit of an off day but I was fairly impressed by the guys today. What a pleasure to see a bit of confidence back and hopefully we can be competing in the upper half of the table instead of the nerve shredding experience of struggling in the lower reaches. Absolutely love the strip as well. My brother used to have a silk butcher strip Cowdenbeath scarf from way back but sadly I can’t find it anywhere. Well done to the team on an excellent performance and long may it continue.
  8. 3-0 to The Blue Brazil. Fantastic result and a superb performance from the entire team. Well chuffed with that .
  9. So far, so good from a Cowdenbeath perspective. Showed much more pace and threat up front at the start of the game than Stenny. Great cross from Renton to set up the headed goal from Barr. Stenny becoming more threatening towards the end of the half though but largely wasteful up front so far. only one goal in it so it’s still all to play for.
  10. Cheers. I see from that, that we will be on the West terracing. Braw!
  11. Apologies if this has already been asked but will the Cowden fans be in the main stand again?
  12. Mark Yardley, Graham Brown and Gareth Wardlaw were three of my all time favourites and Sumo and Billy Steele from the older days. Graham Brown was a brilliant player for us but sadly during his second stint he had gone completely off the boil for some reason. The Flamingo will always be a legend in my eyes. He actually scored a lot of important goals for us, often after coming on as a sub. He was a nutter as well which made him even better in my eyes.
  13. I just remembered that Cowden thought so highly of Tomana that they invested in this company car for him.
  14. Tomana was a great ball player but other teams sussed out that he was a bit lightweight and targeted him for heavy treatment. Towards the end of his time with us he'd had enough of it. I always thought that Hamish French was really good for us, even though it was towards the end of his playing career. He had poise and class on the ball and he made some incredible passes to set up the strikers.
  15. That's right, we had him on loan for a wee while. I'd forgotten about that. I always thought that Jamie Sneddon was a great prospect when we had him. He is still very young for a keeper and has been getting first team appearances for Partick Thistle so I hope he keeps on progressing.
