I really hope Brennan is fully fit for the return leg (he looked like he was still protecting his ankle  in the warm-up). We said on Saturday that Goodfellow should've stopped two or three of the goals. Having watched the horrorlights, I reckon he could've prevented all four! He doesn't command his box enough, and seems reluctant to get in among it: there were at least two or three occasions where he should've clattered through people and punched the ball away. In addition, he lets the ball bounce straight back off him too many times, rather than pushing it away from the danger area. I still can't believe JH brought in Cowden's third choice keeper and made him our first choice. :(

We couldn’t let him start another game.

They highlights were horrendous for Berwick fans, that really could’ve been 8,9, or 10 nil , Goalie only player to get pass marks , just !!!

And I can confirm those highlights are a fair reflection of the actual game, the only thing I was wondering myself as I left the ground on Saturday was how Cove didn't score more.

He stopped it from being even more of a rout!!

I was going to type something negative, but I need to heed my own advice here; the time to point fingers and blame and get angry is on the evening of the 18th.

The slimmest of chances remain - a turnaround of massive proportions that you couldn't ever get me to bet on. Yet, we shall see. I wish the boys, John, and Yano all the best.

I would fancy a result, if only to make sure that Johnny Harvey and his gang of Facebook warriors will hold no illusions of doing a better job had they remained in place.

Not like the shining example of modern football stadia at cappielow ?

at least at Cowden,  it is unlikely that your car will get screwed and you will get stabbed.

Must be changed days in the kingdom since your fall from the Championship then. Have the young team that hung about outside Central Park and tanned the buses all grown out of that now or are they in Polmont?

Playing surface at Cove looked excellent, wouldn't judge it on the pellets. Certainly one of the better 3/4G pitches and streets ahead of the one at Spartans.

Only just watched the highlights. That’s a shagging if the highest order. Looked like watching a game between a pro team and an amateur team- the sort you sometimes see as a gimmick in pre season.

Thoughts: the Berwick players looked miles off it fitness wise- and whatever they do at training, at that level players need to take responsibility for doing their own work too. It showed all over the park. Too slow, too weak and generally no one able to get about the park better than their opposite number. There should not be a gulf that big between two part time teams.

Defensively Berwick seem to have no player who knows how to defend. Individually and as different units they’re miles away positionally and no one seems to have any defensive awareness at all. Wide open every single attack. No cover, no shape, no balance.

There’s no evidence at all of a plan. I didn’t expect to see some amazing revolutionary thing in attack- hard to do that in two weeks- but defensively there’s no evidence of any work being done at all on the training pitch.

Sad, sad times.

Youtube auto played the Cove v Hearts highlights after I watched the Cove v Berwick ones. There was less of a gulf between Cove and Hearts.

I was at both games. Only one of them was even remotely competitive.

Loss of prize money.
Loss of entry into league cup.
Enter Scottish Cup earlier.
Lack of support in LL. Only Kelty average over 200 with 6 or 7 clubs less than 100.
Loss in match day income between lack of away support and reduced prices. The average is about £8.

If meaning next season we'd start Scottish R2 and enter League + Challenge cups.

EK (+ Bonnyrigg) also average 200+. 'Shire + Spartans just shy.

Most charge £6. Clubs set own prices.

You are delusional if you think there’s hope. We’ll get well beaten again on Saturday.

The whole town is hurting, history down the pan, it is so sad, I would cry if I wasn't so angry.

I'm an old guy, but I never contemplated that I would see this scenario in my lifetime.

90 minutes to overturn 4 goals, not impossible, but totally improbable with the players we have available.

I have put the blame, fairly and squarely at the door of the regime in other posts and been criticised for this by the ST, SC and board followers, but this is my club, the club I love and have followed for more years than I care to remember, I have seen regimes come and go, witnessed Bowes, seen the club rebuild, each time while retaining their league status, this is just the worst. without question I will be there on Saturday for the final knockings and there will be a wee tear in my eye when I walk back into town. End of an era, so very, very sad, hope they don't play the last post:(:(

I can't be the only one disappointed that it turned out to be a football game they were showing after that intro music... 

Watching Berwick getting shagged for twelve minutes passes off as a porno, arguably...

If only that were true, sadly the town of Berwick has very little interest in the football club except for the very big games. Large portions of the regular home crowd come from outside Berwick and have for many years.

Brennan

Wilson Cook Brydon

Ogilvie Brown Barr Orru 

Adamson Healey See

We'll still lose, but might have a few shots.

Anyone know why Murphy wasn't even on the bench on Saturday?

He travelled but can’t help you any further. 

Brennan, Cook and Brown in and draw the remaining 8 places out of a hat.
