  1. Something I just about remember working on for many years before they died. I think they were made out of trees

    Right chaps, as Sevco boss Slippy G once infamously said, "We go again"... and this time tomorrow, I hope to be sat in the Junction having enjoyed a few drinks, after meeting Blind Paul in Dunfermline en-route, and not to be greeted with the same news as a week Friday on arrival in Fife's Chicago! And hopefully see more of you than I did last time. I'm packing the layers, hat, gloves, scarf in anticipaction for the Baltic conditions and all set for another 8.30am departure. See you again tomorrow, and... C'mon Cowden!

    Nice one pal, and sorry to mess you about... but hopefully all worth it in the end... when I finally get to buy you a pint!

    Your commitment is as much mental as it is admirable! Ha, ta... I don't know about admirable but definitely feckin nuts - especially after I questioned my sanity returning from the last futile trip. I was desperate to get back for this but the only real obstacle was finances (working freelance can be a bitch when waiting for payment, especially at this time of year)... so tried delaying what I thought would be the inevitable of missing this game until as late as possible. Wanting to give Al a few days to find any possible takers for my ticket, I sent a message earlier, expressing the regret that I'd have to say it's looking very unlikely I'll be able to travel. Then he says about some heaters and the fact it WILL be on - and this coming from the fella who doubted the Albion Rovers away might go ahead, and was also worried about last Friday's match. So the certainty raised that slight hope of getting there. Then I got a message off me mate Blind Paul asking if I'm going and could I get him a ticket, as he's up for a few days in Scotland mooching around some grounds and junior games and heard via an FC friend that I've been doing a few Cowden games and was up for the game last week. So then there was the possibility of sharing costs on digs, and there was only one way without the roll of a dice that I was going to commit to this and that was the old tried and tested... Put my faith in the Viking god that is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and whack a tenner on United winning at Arsenal tonight. With half an hour to go, I cashed out and put a few quid on United 3-1, and thus my train fare was covered on a £10 bet, Paul was called and committed to travelling... and hopefully Al hasn't found a buyer for my tickets! So if you see a skint, pished and travel-weary-looking fella walking down the High Street with a can in his hand and a blind fella trailing desperately on his shoulder, and steering the poor sod into the High Street shop windows en-route by mid-afternoon next Wednesday... that'll be us, and please feel free to feed our hunger for alcohol! Now C'mon Cowden!! PS... Yes, Blind Paul really is blind but he's one of the biggest sports nuts I know... goes 'watching' cricket in Australia on his own and loves lower-league Scottish fitba... so we're all a bunch of barmpots in our Cowden Reds group... as you're probably slowly discovering over the past year

    Wonderful news... I'll get that train booked. Again!
  6. Cowdenbeath 2018-2019

    Oh, frigginell... don't say that... I'll be camping in Burntisland at this rate So before I book... what extra efforts are being made to assure the same issues don't possibly arise again, and is there any official line on the likelihood/chances of the game being on or off?
  7. Cowdenbeath 2018-2019

    ALI, KEEP MY NAME ON THOSE TICKETS TA PAL!! I'm risking financial ruin to get up for this rearranged game, along with me much-travelled and equally drunken made Blind Paul who despite the fact I'll be acting as his guide, he'll no doubt he guiding me home by the end of another very long day or two on the lash without hopefully the latest recruit of the Cowden Reds! Now get them heaters working... please!
  8. Cowdenbeath 2018-2019

    Cheers, if that's Talkative Scott then I think we've got the same person. Any idea of the lad from West Bromwich and/or his Arsenal supporting mate? Said they might be headin back up
  9. Cowdenbeath 2018-2019

    In fact chief... can you hold em until tomorrow night... it's still 90% certain I won't make it so if anyone wants to get at the top of the list on standby... I've just been offered a glimmer of hope for making it... and my companion really would make you smile if it's a goer. By the way. Do you know who Scotty is on here... or one of the lads from West Brom?
  10. Cowdenbeath 2018-2019

    I'm already looking forward to Wimpy, err, I mean Kilmarnock in the next round!
  11. Cowdenbeath 2018-2019

    I think I've just got over the disappointment of last week's game being postponed after setting off at 8.30am and being greeted by the Junction Bar landlord as soon as we got to Cowden at around 5 with the opening words "You do know the game's off don't you?!" I thought he was taking the mick, until my mate bounces into the bar and exclaims, Fkinell, it's off! Anyway, we made the most of it and enjoyed a great night in the Junction with Scotty, Steve and the lads from West Bromwich who'd travelled further than us before heading home the next day... and now I have to face the disappointment of probably not being able to get back up for the rearranged game for one reason or another. Grrr
  12. Cowdenbeath 2018-2019

    It'll be on... or I'm staying at Dale's until it's rearranged and we can't inflict that on the poor lad!
  13. Cowdenbeath 2018-2019

    Sorry Ron, but I think the answer might be you still haven't rid yourself of pain from that last-second cup elimination all those years ago against Rangers, and it is still haunting you!!
  14. Cowdenbeath 2018-2019

    Two of us should be arriving hopefully around 1ish, planning to stop off via our digs in Queensferry... but if you need a coupla pairs of hands about 1ish if you're not done by then, please give us a shout and we'll happily stay on the train and gladly help out if needs be. And keep these positive vibes/times going please!
  15. Cowdenbeath 2018-2019

    Well I for one am glad to see the back of 2018 and would like to wish all you Beathies a happy, healthy and prosperous 2019, from the Manchester Cows!
