  1. FFKSC in town early and looking forward to this one. Should be a belter. What a job Dick Campbell is doing.
  2. A very scrappy game yesterday. Think a draw would have been a fairer result as very little between the teams. Disappointing to lose the second goal as the keeper shouldn't be beaten at his near post from that angle. Buffs play nice stuff, but sometimes want to walk the ball into the net instead of being a wee bit more direct. Perhaps lack a wee bit of physicality too. A relatively young team still developing, we will learn and move on.
  3. Killie were awful today. Morton offered next to nothing. We take the 3 points and move on to Firhill.
  4. In front of a decent crowd at Townhead Cumnock and Buffs served up some decent fayre. Nock were the better side first half and former player Frye finished off a good move to take the lead. Second half Buffs upped their game and Nock hit on the break. Despite having the majority of the ball and throwing many dangerous crosses into the box, Buffs couldn't find a clear cut chance and some excellent defending saw Nock hold on for the win. Tactically Cumnock edged it today. Buffs unbeaten start to the season comes to an end, lessons will be learnt as we move on to Largs next Saturday at Buffs Park. Best for Buffs today were McGowan and Coutts. Special mention to the Cumnock pie stall, plenty of choice and some of the cheapest prices in the league.
  5. Acid Dad's album is top drawer
  6. Yes, 20s play on a Friday night. Be good when Clydebank come visiting, always a good crowd and generally plenty of goals.
  7. Yep, lights make an amazing difference to the atmosphere in the ground. I'd imagine moving games to a Friday night might be commercially beneficial in terms of the social hub, I hope we see more midweek or Friday night games under the lights.
  8. Amother tough game for Buffs tonight against a very well organised Cumbernauld side. Buffs pressed forward for the whole of the first half, but showed little invention to break the away side down. Second half started much the same, Buffs starting to penetrate a stubborn defence. Buffs got a penalty midway through the half, the keepers legs keeping out Symes effort down the middle. The breakthrough wasn't long in coming though as a decent move saw a Coutts header past the keeper for the only goal of the game. Buffs had one or two near things and Cumbernauld tried to hit on the break, but 1 0 to the home side it finished. Best for Buffs were wide men Millar and Kemp.
  9. A struggle for Buffs at Rossvale today. Rossvale didn't play like a team that had shipped 30 goals in 8 games. Despite attacking from the off, first blood went to the home side with a quick move on the counter and a nice finish. Syme equalised for Buffs from the spot after McColm had been fouled. Expectations were high that Buffs would step it up second half, despite the majority of possession little clear cut chances arrived. Indeed Rossvale could have won it near the end with another breakaway that saw a shot rebound off the bar. A tough game for Buffs but a spirited performance from Rossvale. Jordan Stuart and Ben Lewis best for Buffs on the day. Cumbernauld United up next.
  10. Buffs huffed and puffed first half tonight, obvious hangover from Saturdays 4 4 draw at Glencairn. Second half we got on top and once the second goal went in the swagger and attacking intent returned. Rossvale and Cumbernauld up next. Onwards and upwards.
  11. The aim is to apply for a licence, but not sure if that'll be next year or not? In recent weeks, the social hub has opened, coverings applied to all terraced areas and the uncovered seating has opened {plan to cover next year}. Amazing what's been achieved in a relatively short space of time. Credit to Colin Boyd, Colin Evans, the committee and army of volunteers.
  12. Aint we all? In all honesty, these 2 teams play a completely different brand of football. Buffs get the ball on the ground and play, sometimes a wee bit elaborate in front of goal. Darvel were back to front, get the ball as far up the park as possible, didnt play much football until the middle of the second half and even then? Both are effective brands of football, but I know what I would rather watch. Easy to see in that Darvel team boys that could easily play at a much higher level, so why are they at Darvel?
  13. Segregation not required, ridiculous. All the best for the season ahead.
