    On the park and fit, Big Jordyn is a menacing player who makes things happen. Could we offer him a new contract with some penalties built in re fitness? A front two of Big J and Wee J would be exciting to watch.

    On his game and fully fit, Sheerin is an exciting player. As well as being a natural goalscorer, he knocks defenders about and creates space for others - just ask the Cove defenders! They were quoted in the Press and Journal as saying how hard he was to play against. Two or three sessions with a good sports psychologist might prove to be cheap at the price - having an instinctive striker who terrorises defenders can be the difference between staying up and being in the relegation play-offs (perish the thought!) Mind you, the player himself has to 'get it' that he's throwing away a good career by not taking care of himself. I would set him up with a reputable sports psychologist - and ask an enthusiastic motivator like Neil Irvine to work with him on his fitness - and offer him an extended contract with penalty causes in it. He is a special talent. Showing that degree of belief in him could save his career and benefit the club in terms of goals and transfer value.
  3. Cowden v Annan

    The game was lost when the team selection was made...

    What a weird team selection!

    We spotted Greg Stewart as an amateur - he's doing pretty well. Of course, we never got a penny for him from Dundee or Birmingham or Aberdeen.

    I would agree with Steven Gerrard's statement that Cowden played for 90 minutes but Rangers played for 45. GB's plan was obviously to contain Rangers in the early stages in order to avoid a humiliating slaughter that might have dented the players' confidence for what is the most important thing - the league challenge.. Just think: how much did the Rangers team on the park and on the subs' bench cost? The answer is in the millions. How much did the Cowden team and bench cost? We lost our first goal when Jason Talbot, one of our best players, was off the pitch after a barge by Lafferty. We were far from disgraced, and int the second half, especially when the subs came on, we took the game to Rangers. If that rebound ball that just crept past the post had gone in, making the score 3-2, who knows what would have happened? The players can take confidence from that second half performance. After some truly dire seasons, we have a team capable of mounting a decent challenge at the business end of the table. The manager clearly doesn't have confidence in the sub keeper. My guess is that this signing is a statement of intent - going all out for a top four place. We have a terrific keeper in Davie McGurn, but if Davie is injured, we're in trouble. Not only is he a great shot-stopper, he's an experienced leader on the park. He marshals the defence, who in turn have confidence in him. Having a good substitute keeper could be the difference between gaining a top-four place and narrowly failing.

Re David Marsh: we just don't know the circumstances. No manager would sacrifice one of his best players just before a huge game on a whim.
  8. Clyde vs Cowdenbeath

    Good point, Andy.
  9. Clyde vs Cowdenbeath

    Is it wise to be fielding Davie McGurn today, given what's at stake on Wednesday...

    cheers, Rev! Good replies on here, guys! Personally, I side with the romantics, but we can't really lose, can we? It's great to be in a cracker of a tie that will produce decent rewards and take a bit of pressure off the directors. The club have backed the management team, and we're seeing the fruits of this. What a difference after the tortured seasons of recent times. We go into this tie off the back of a couple of good wins - hopefully it'll be a good experience for our young players. Then, with a more settled formation and a great team spirit, we can motor on and maybe get into that top four. Who knows?

    So here's the scenario tomorrow night at Central Park. It's blowing a blizzard. We're into injury time. The score is Cowdenbeath 0 Rangers 0. The desperate Rangers defenders are lumping balls into the Cowden penalty area. Morelos, a second half Rangers substitute, bursts through on goal. The Cowden supporters can hardly breathe. Morelos shoots, but Davie McGurn, who has been brilliant all evening, makes a superb save. Morelos throws himself down, screaming, with no one near him. The Cowden fans whistle for time up, urging McGurn to kick the ball down the No 7 pit - forgetting that the No 7 pit was demolished years ago --but Davie has other ideas. Noticing that Jordan Allan has started running at speed, Davie kicks the ball over the heads of the retreating Rangers players. Jordan has timed his run to perfection . He's heading straight for goal, but the Rangers keeper crudely takes him out. Penalty! The TV cameras show that the Cowdenbeath directors are sitting in the stand with their heads bowed. They are praying. Even Donald Findlay is seen to be praying fervently to God. (His Holiness Pope Francis will later pronounce this to be a miracle.) The question is this: what should the Cowden directors be praying for? Answers on a postcard.

    With Premiersports, is it possible to book just one game, or does one have to sign up for a season? Their website is a bit unclear.
  13. Elgin v Cowden

    4-1 now! Bring on the Rangers!
  14. Cowdenbeath vs Berwick Rangers FC
