Cowdenbeath 2018-2019

Recommended Posts

Elgin chairman said he can't make it rain. How about watering the affected area. Or, water the whole pitch.


Imagine even coming out with that comment. They’re even having a laugh all over the telly

Cowden players wanted a brush an shovels, said they could sort it, but ref refused. The pitch is dry and bumpy. But no different to all games so far this pre-season and on. I used to play on tarmac!

The comments from Tatters are ridiculous, it was raining this morning, yesterday and several times throughout this week and last. It isn't even a new problem as Jim McInally was moaning about it at the end of last season.

I wonder if perhaps the new drainage system they put in a few seasons ago has worked too well and caused this problem? Whatever the reason, painful to be a laughing stock yet again for off field reasons.

Apparently the heavy rain earlier this morning washed through sand to expose gravel. Ref was worried for injuries. Surely a rake a re-lay sand would have been fine? Small area no more than 10ft2

A lot of folk are quick to slag Cowden, facilities etc., but this is an absolute joke.

what a total embarrassment, there must be some kind of punishment. It’s so pathetic it’s barely believable.

Big fine incoming I'd imagine. Not the first time they've had a match called off because of rank amateur behaviour; remember the Rangers fiasco they got a 25k fine for?

That said, Gavin Ross was the referee and he's a qualified idiot.

The pitch is incredibly dry, although the fact that it is mentioned in the first two paragraphs in the programme obviously shows we had plenty of time to do something about it. Another embarrassing postponement.

What a laughing stock. The stupidity of Tatters's comments may well give a pointer to where the problem lies.

 

This is absurd.  Award the three points to Cowden and reimburse the travelling support

Every so often those that run Elgin City cause us paying loyal fans to cringe shake our heads and pray for some sanity. Sure the ref could have exercised a bit of common sense also though.

Elgin are an absolute shambles off the pitch. Whoever is in charge there doesn’t know what they are doing.

Why the f**k would you put gravel on a football pitch? Utterly bizarre. Unfortunately, this sort of thing is par for the course when you let these glorified social clubs into the senior leagues.

And yet this particular "glorified social club" (who have been in "the senior leagues" nearly as long as Clyde) are above you in the table, having played a game less...

Just had a rant about this in the Elgin thread, our chairman is a fitness coach with no business or boardroom creditenals that has ended up in his position by a lot of good luck and dodgy shareholding deals, he's not the right person to be running this football club.

Shame because Elgin is a cracker of an away trip and they are infinitely more likeable than any of the other Highland league entries but they need someone in there that knows what they are doing.
