  1. It's murder. Just about keeping sane by watching old highlights on YouTube. McGurn's performance in the 1-1 draw away to Edinburgh City( in 2016 I think) gets better every time I see it.
  2. Thanks for that. If everyone just votes for their own players it's pointless.
  3. Anyone know what the team of the season was? Did any Cowden players make it?
  4. Sorry to tell you guys that Ross Clarke has signed for Cowden. Any good?
  5. Yes, the pencil has, it over the computer. I remember when if Cowdenbeath were at home Dunfermline were away, if Raith were at home East Fife were away. Last season there was one Saturday all four Fife clubs were at home
  6. Just seen on the Queens Park thread that they have released Jamieson. Looked a really good player in the games against us. Just saying.
  7. You've released Jamiieson!!!!! I can't believe that. If everyone just votes for the players from their own club in the team of the year we are not going to get a true result. Having said that, I voted for Craig Barr but he has been outstanding, week after week. If I were allowed two votes Jamieson Would have got the other one.
  8. Sorry to hear about Ryan Connelly. He looked a really talented player in the making.. Hope we don't live to regret it.
  9. Like others, I am not a big fan of Buchanan, but the manager clearly rates him and he knows a lot more about football than me .Miller is another one who drives me crazy sometimes, I really like him but I feel he is capable of so much more. It was a good stroke of luck for us to get Morrison he looks very accomplished. I really hope we can hold on to him.
  10. Sad news for you guys about Harper who seemed a decent bloke and a decent manager. Given the fluidity of things at the moment, you would have thought he would have waited to see how things panned out, before making a decision but we don't know all the details.
  11. I can't see what we have to gain from a 14 team division and it's ridiculously unfair on Clyde ,Peterhead and to an extent Forfar. Would hate to see the playoffs go as well.
  12. Just finished watching Motherwell v Hubs and Colin Nish's hat trick. Brought back memories of his hat trick against Raith when the impossible dream became suddenly very possible, only for us to blow it against Livvy and Allow. It still hurts. Sigh
  13. Just to be clear, did we officially finish third or fourth?
  14. If div 2 stays at ten teams with Cove swapped for Stranraer I think we would have as good a chance as anybody in a very open league. Don't really fancy a 14 team division
  15. I suppose it all depends on the financial situation of the clubs and how soon we get back to playing. Personally I would be gutted if we didn't get to take our chances in the playoffs. Finish the season cup finals and all, have a couple of weeks break so clubs could get their signings sorted than get on with a new season. If we only play each other three times or twice, well at least everyone knows where they stand before the season starts.
  16. I wasn't and now you're making me feel guilty.
  17. A grim war of attrition, a game totally spoiled by the howling gale. Would have taken a draw at half-time as we failed to capitalize on the favourable wind, but Annan did little better. In fact both teams created more against the wind. A draw was fair enough. I can understand the manager's reluctance to change a winning team, but he probably missed a trick, as we didn't play so well today, and one or two looked a bit leggy. Hopefully Hamilton will be back on Tuesday he is too good to leave out, and we have a decent bench now so changes will not weaken us. I really like Morrison , and I take it he is injured as he wasn't on the bench. Oh, forgot to say ref was decent for a change.
  18. Team selection interesting tomorrow. Same eleven have played twice in a week and Hamilton available again.
  19. A decent game in difficult conditions. Playing on the break is all very well, but I agree that we sit too deep and hand the initiative to the opposition, relying on our centre backs to repel all boarders, which to their credit they almost did. Renton had a good game I thought, but our midfield is too easily brushed aside defensively though ok going forward Allan is talented and should be starting, he and Renton can play together ok. Morrison will toughen up our midfield. What about Connelly is he still on loan?
  20. Re Brechin's great escape in div 1. It was largely due to signing Lewis Spence on loan from the pars, he was a stand out. They escaped while we went down. I was later staggered to find we were offered Spence but Nish turned it down saying we had plenty of midfielders we certainly did, unfortunately they were all crap
  21. Bollan has taken us from rock bottom to third. Crazy to suggest he should go. Some of his decisions seem a bit puzzling at times, but you could say that about any manager.
  22. Hopefully we can appeal the red card, as we can ill afford to lose Hamilton. Morrison's injury is a worry too as he was comfortably our best player. Our centre backs are normally rock solid, but I think the slippery surface made them a bit uncertain, and the pace and craft of Bikey and Duffy worried them all game. Last week Allen got the ball into feet and he scored one, made one, and led the Stenny defence a merry dance. This week he hardly got a pass the whole game. Miller and Buchanan were at their infuriating worst, hardly winning a tackle or completing a pass. Don't know whyMiller was preferred to Cox, maybe the latter was carrying a knock. Had a bad feeling about this game beforehand, I just felt we were due a poor performance, and it was certainly that. Stirling took their chances and were well worth the win. Referee was stinking as per usual.
  23. You are not down yet. You've got the manager you've got, and you've got the team you've got. Best thing to do is get right behind them. We scraped through one play off on penalties, and in the other we looked gone for all money at half-time in the second leg but somehow turned it round. It can be done.
