  1. Hopefully I can jinx this now, but Cowden really don't look like scoring [judging from the limited updates on BBC]... which could be crucial in keeping this tie alive. In fact, seems only one team likely to get a third which would prove a killer. By the way, what's the script with away goals in these play-offs? Do they count?
  2. It might have taken a while, but definitely worth the wait this one. Great shirt...
  3. I could never warm to Bollan and always imagined it would be a nightmare playing for him. Especially if you had a bit of talent. But this fella, I like already. He's a thinker, not a shouter, and it's exactly what Cowden need after the last few years and with some of the talent available in the side. I'm confident he'll get the players raising their levels, playing to their strengths and getting that bit extra out of the squad that's been lacking. After a bleak couple of months, there's now some hope at least that things can and will get better. Good luck to yer man
  4. Hopefully that means you don't have to write the manager's notes any more after today, pal
  5. He should have stepped down before this latest shitstorm, which everyone could surely see coming. Do the decent thing, Bollan. And go now.
  6. Can I add another angle to the Bollan debate here. I love the Cowdenbeath programme and, for me, there's none better. But I've always noticed that the manager's notes usually take up less space than his picture and his communication with fans is virtually non-existent. Which makes me wonder, why, all of sudden, and for the first time I can remember - never mind this season - we are now treated to a page of Bollan's post-match comments after Saturday's defeat on the Cowden website. Though all I can say is there's no wonder there's not much communication with supporters, or via his programme notes when, after reading that, his coaching methods essentially seem to be 'must try harder'. There's only so many times you can tell player that, Gary, before they stop listening. And if you're reading this by any chance, then surely you've been in the game long enough to realise that. The one sensible thing he did say in that now rare glimpse into the world of Gary Bollan's post-match thoughts was that, with the team at his disposal, Cowden should be performing better. If they try harder. I think even the teacher in Kes could motivate a team with words better than that pal. Which leaves only one person culpable in my eyes. Will Bollan have the dignity to step down from his position without that payout of his contract, and allow somebody else who can possibly get something more out of this team come in without it bankrupting the club.... before it's too late? Or will he stubbornly hold on, with his only hope being that eventual pay-off for the last half-year of his contract, whilst Cowden go down the pan, as he watches on - devoid of ideas - from the sidelines? Over to you, Donald... [And please, if any Cowden fans think I'm talking out of term here.... feel free to shoot me down]
  7. I'll be heading up for Saturday's game and was wondering if we can pay at the gate yet, or is it online ticket sales only still?
  8. Are there any pictures yet of how the new Meadowbank is looking? I've tried searching for some, but to no avail, and would love to see what's happened to the old place
  9. I reckon something simple and effective like this would be decent - if not this season then next - and would be a good seller...
  10. Any news on an away kit this season or, with the fact no other club in League Two wears blue, are we not bothering this year and just hoping Cowden draw non-blue-shirt-wearing clubs in the cups?!
  11. Probably my last post on here for a while, though I'm hoping to get up for a game again once the season is finally under way. But what do you reckon? Three or four signings away from being a team capable of challenging for the play-offs, or the potential for another season looking over the shoulder and the worrying about the threat of relegation? I just hope fans can get back to enjoying the matchday experience once again, meeting up with old mates, doing what we've always done, for generations, no matter the weather, or result. And that a few more quality signings can be made to give Cowden fans a bit of optimism going into what will surely be another intriguing campaign. Mon the Coo
  12. And on that note, and with any interest in the Euros now over, maybe it's time to move on to the other page for the new season
  13. Nothing much else to do at the moment, and with the announcement today of the League Cup group stages being drawn, what better time to draw a line under last season and start a thread for the new campaign. Whilst the new strain of Covid is an obvious worry after the last two seasons and with the new strain threatening further disruption, hopefully we can all be back at the game sooner rather than later and it feel so good standing on that Central Park terrace once again, soaking up the rain of sunny Fife, along with a few drinks in Jimmies, and in good company of some good friends. Let's hope there's some good recruitment over the coming months and onwards and upwards Cowden....
  14. So we're less than forty minutes off the last game of the season, and whilst being delighted this match is a complete dead rubber, I'm even happier that this season will finally be finished for Cowdenbeath. Well done to everyone involved at the club, including the players and coaching staff [who I have admittedly criticised] for managing to avoid that dreaded last spot, [and thanks to Brechin for once again being absolute gash once again], and I can't wait to hopefully return for a few games new season with Cowden, thankfully, still in the league. Finally, and most importantly, the effort that has gone on behind the scenes must also be applauded during what has been the most unprecedented of seasons, and often seemed a thankless task. Stay safe folks, have a great summer, let's hope Scotland can beat England in the Euros, and hopefully see you all again next season in better times
