Get Allan on for the next league game.

Was surprised we didn’t bring on any subs yesterday. If Allan played on the shoulder and looked to use his pace in behind he would be ideal for that kind of situation yesterday, but he always seems to want to come short for the ball which would have invited more pressure into us yesterday.

Think Edinburgh City will be well pleased if he doesn’t start.

Well done to the players & Gary Bollan & the rest of the management  team for putting together five successive victories. We are playing some great football at the min. Nice to see us dig in and win against a well organised Albion Rovers team. In the recent past we would have lost a game like yesterday's.

Impressed with Archie Thomas, Kris Renton, Connor Smith, Fraser Mullan & Mango Barr over the last few games. My man of the match against Albion Rovers was Kyle Miller. Puts in a lot of effort and links the play nicely and not afraid to put his foot in.

I think the team is being inspired by the greatest shirt worn by a Cowden side since, well, the last time this style was worn!

Can the club not keep the same top next year, but release a long-sleeve version (which is surely the only way this current shirt can be bettered) and maybe a red, yellow or white alternative in the same design as next season's new away kit?

Funny how people see the same things differently.I thought our midfield never really got going on Saturday, and Miller's distribution was terrible. Sitting on a one nil lead and time wasting with half an hour to go looked a very risky strategy, but our back three were terrific, as they have been all season. The one time iRovers  got through our keeper pulled off a great save.Like others I was surprised that we didn't use any substitutes, but five wins in a row, happy days

Agree with this, I thought miller was extremely poor yesterday. And the other guys mentioned where nowhere near the standards they have set, in particular Thomas and Renton.

We won, again. When we were losing every week sometimes we actually played well. We are winning now whilst sometimes not being at our best. I think that’s a much better place. Just saying.

Agree. Miller is poor most of the time. He gives the ball away regularly and suddenly we are up against it. He also tends to switch the play from an  attacking position to heading back towards our own goals. Our defence and keeper are making the difference. Mango is excellent at this level. We are frustrating the opposition more than anything.

However, we look toothless upfront most of the time. We won't keep on getting penalties. It would be good to see fast skillful attacking players like Taylor, Allan and Smith all on at the same time and feeding off each other. I would also like to see Swann in the midfield area.

If we are to challenge the top two, we need strikers scoring regularly. Saturday will be real test.

I’m happy, very happy. Can’t wait for the next game. Last year at this time I was dreading it. If we keep this up, fans will return.

Harvey won’t get a game unless someone’s injured but after what Allan did to Edinburgh last season I’d love to see him get a start on Saturday, but can you change a winning team?

Chris Kane is playing for City so we’ve every chance of getting another penalty.

If you read back my previous post after the game on Saturday I said the exact same thing

With the exception of young Chris Hamilton, who was outstanding, most players probably underperformed today and played well below the standards they have set and we still came away with a clean sheet and 3 points.

Impressive stuff, mon the coo!

We're football supporters. Understanding and logical thinking rules need not apply...

Craig Barr, as has been said, is the biggest difference for me. Put him in any side in this league and the defence will be tight as. He's an absolute rock who plays with an excellent level of aggression. A winner and a sexy b*****d.

I am more than happy. I would take where we are now quite happily for a good few years. Given our resources, we are doing a great job. However, I think we can do even better with the right line up.

You can definitely change a winning team, especially if it needs changing in certain areas.

It's incredible the difference in the team.  I've only been to the Elgin game and we lost 3-0 going on 5-0 and I was critical of the team and the management.  It was a shambolic performance.

However now we have the right loan players and seem to have a system that works. Well done to Gary and the team for getting it right finally.  I've a group of work colleagues coming down to the Cove match at the start of November so if we could keep the feel good factor going until then!
