  1. mcallister to cove the biggest move so far
  2. cove PR department hit the self destruct button - why wouldn't they just let the guy leave in few days (hours) time when his deal runs out, now they have what I can only imagine will be a shower of unwanted attention and the resurfacing article with Hartley will take a lot of explaining away - probably along the lines of oh well he said those things before he was a Cove employee, but people in lots of positions are being binned for things they said eons ago...
  3. it could happen 2020-2021 if brora really want it - if they don't then hopefully they'll pass on the league title and let Locos have a go, although they saved their worst display of the year for arguably the biggest game, broxburn at hame
  4. one third of the season gone and comfortably 5 points ahead in what is a 2 team race - what are the chances now?
  5. League 2 - likely largest budget highlighted 2013–14 Peterhead Annan Athletic Rory McAllister (Peterhead) 32 2014–15 Albion Rovers Queen's Park Peter Weatherson (Annan Athletic) 22 2015–16 East Fife (possibly Arbroath who finished 9th!) Elgin City Nathan Austin (East Fife) 22 2016–17 Arbroath Forfar Athletic Shane Sutherland (Elgin City) 18 2017–18 Montrose Peterhead David Goodwillie (Clyde) 25 2018–19 Peterhead Clyde League 1 Season Winner Runner-up Top scorer Player Goals 2013–14 Rangers Dunfermline Athletic Michael Moffat (Ayr United) 26 2014–15 Greenock Morton (possibly Dunfermline?) Stranraer Declan McManus (Greenock Morton) 20 2015–16 Dunfermline Athletic Ayr United Faissal El Bakhtaoui (Dunfermline Athletic) Rory McAllister (Peterhead) 22 2016–17 Livingston Alloa Athletic Andy Ryan (Airdrieonians) 23 2017–18 Ayr United Raith Rovers Lawrence Shankland (Ayr United) 26 2018–19 Arbroath (possibly Raith?) Forfar Athletic Kevin Nisbet (Raith Rovers) 30 Championship 2013–14 Dundee Hamilton Academical Rory Loy (Falkirk) 20 2014–15 Heart of Midlothian Hibernian Jason Cummings (Hibernian) 18 2015–16 Rangers Falkirk Martyn Waghorn (Rangers) 20 2016–17 Hibernian Falkirk Jason Cummings (Hibernian) Stephen Dobbie (Queen of the South) 19 2017–18 St Mirren Livingston Stephen Dobbie (Queen of the South) 18 2018–19 Ross County Dundee United Lawrence Shankland (Ayr United) 24 so probably 10 out of 18 give or take but I think that's skewed by Rangers/Hibs/Hearts and I would guess going back further the strike rate is lower
  6. your arguement is based on a snapshot - anyone who thinks that celtic, united and falkirk (who went top only this past saturday) are home and hosed should have a wander doon their local bookies..with exception of celtic who have had no credible competition for years, how many times in past 5 seasons have the club with biggest budget won their league (and restricting arguement to Scotland which I didn't) - ross county last year, certainly not, montrose certainly not, arbroath certainly not etc etc
  7. why the hoo fn ha aboot a fans match report - majority on here are likely capable of the same sort of biased nonsense...yes of course funding is a factor but there are multiple examples e.g. two teams in Dundee, Falkirk and many more down south where money doesn't translate to automatic success. cove have more than one backer - not exactly a 'community club' but several guys behind the scenes with the ability to pay wages for a few decent players. nae sure if the 'rivalry' thing is mair for the cowden or cove fans benefits - storm in a tea urn i think
  8. cove have walloped the away opposition in L2 this year apart from the freak coatbridge score so anything less than an away win will be a major surprise OR another sign that the likes of talbot and banks o dee need to get a grip and go for the pyramid
  9. bound to hit a rough patch, all teams do at least once per season, but Cove will win L2 by at least 8 points
  10. can't see any reason for the 'confidence' in Elgin, bookies have Cove at 8/11 and whilst that's too short, can't see anything other than an away win and BTTS as Cove continue their progress to L1 in 2020-2021
  11. Elgin, at one time the HL powerhouse have been disappointing but County (especially) and Peterhead have done themselves proud and certainly better than a Bonnyrigg/Linlithgow/Auchinleck/Kelty etc etc would although these and many more will surely appear in L2 in next 20 years, at whose expense is the bigger question
  12. shock/horror - drinks mair expensive in Aberdeen than in Fife
  13. HL will be proper competition for first time in years post Cove and Brora dominance - Fraserburgh, Buckie, Brora and Locos will all be there and too early to write off Formartine although it's hard to believe that one club could have so many bottlers over the years
  14. good reports on here about the QP fans participation, how many were up? also dons at home will have affected attendance...the cowden anti-cove feelings are really tiresome, what are your criteria for a 'welcome addition to the spfl'? the pyramid gives well managed, well funded and ambitious teams a chance to break through (if they want it) what are you afraid of?
  15. Oh and the cove poster playing things down and hoping for survival maybe hasn't heard from the committee or all those involved in the move from allen park a few years back, their ambitions aren't survival in L2
