  1. (Another) Ayrshire Derby - Auchinleck vs Ayr

    Add on the expense of conforming to the club licencing . Floodlights , chartered physio , club doctor , safety officers , ground improvements etc ..........all add up . Maybe not as simple as just entering the league and trying to buy success. Perhaps that is why most junior clubs don't fancy it .
  2. The Blue Brazil v (The) Appeal F.C

    The segregation at CP is a simple one. The old stand is being used for the 400 or so Cowden fans and The Rangers get the rest. Some of the diehards are not happy about it but Donald seems to think it's fair enough.
  3. Hibernian versus Elgin City, 19/01/19

    I don't think that's something to be proud of at the moment . Always going to be a challenge for an attacking midfielder to get a game in a defensive set up ..............The U21s even tried to change his style and played him as a sweeper .
  4. Hibernian versus Elgin City, 19/01/19

    From their time growing up together . Gauld was always the stand out .
  5. (Another) Ayrshire Derby - Auchinleck vs Ayr

    Did that comment come from McCall by any chance ? He is a p***k.
  6. Hibernian versus Elgin City, 19/01/19

    Set up the first with a glorious pass by all accounts . Can't wait to see his old pal Souttar being schooled by him again in the derby.
  7. The Blue Brazil v (The) Appeal F.C

    No been there for a while right enough. If we are lucky enough to visit the san Central next season we could meet up for a pint beforehand .
  8. The Blue Brazil v (The) Appeal F.C

    Aye that turned out well for you didn't it ? In fairness though he made sure you didn't fall through the trapdoor with his contacts !
  9. The Blue Brazil v (The) Appeal F.C

    Premier Sports have confirmed they will have the rearranged game so unlucky. Ach well the rest of the Cowdenbeath support can sleep easy knowing they will get to see the game after all. All hail Donald . A man for the peepel !!
  10. The Blue Brazil v (The) Appeal F.C

    It's Donald I feel sorry for . He did everything in his power to make sure the Cowdenbeath support could be their 12th man !!!! Be a real shame if sky or premier sports can't screen the rearranged game !!!!
  11. Brechin City 2018 /19

    Ah right cheers. Hadn't heard anything about him for a while an wondered If he had maybe just slipped out the back door. Talking of older players , I was reading in the paper today the ages of The Rangers new signings. Jeezo !!! Kind of reassures us that Shields maybe has a few years left in him yet .
  12. Brechin City 2018 /19

    Aye. Seemingly just had an op so don't know when or if he will be fit again.

    That was the same as Robert Thompson in his early days with us but with perseverance and hard work paid off for him. I think Boris has just come to the club at an unfortunate time where confidence was at an all time low. In different circumstances I think he might have made a real impact.

    The hedge side at Brechin is good for getting the wind ups going with players as you are just that bit higher than the players . One game I recall one of our fans giving Charlie Adam (sen) pelters when he played for us. It went on for most of the game until Charlie eventually lost the rag 10 mins from the end , jumped the barrier and offered the guy outside after the final whistle. Needless to say the guy immediately apologised and never uttered another word . Charlie was strangely not sent off as I think the ref was just glad that the guy had been silenced. Another time Kevin Fotheringham was getting the "fat b*****d" treatment from the large travelling Arbroath support . True to form he scored a screamer and he went right over and ran the length of the hedge side with his shirt up patting his belly . ........................Of course this was after he was punted from Arbroath after the infamous Smokie incident in their team photo .

    But somehow it will sadly probably degenerate into that
