There was a coo

Michael cunningham comes in on loan from east fife for the rest of the season, striker and fife lad. Deal makes sense as i’m sure carlos only has a deal up till January. Hope to see him in tomorrows game get some minutes under his belt.

I’ve quite enjoyed watching Carlos, he’s a very clever player, but the brutal fact is that he has yet to score.

And when so many games have got away from us by an odd goal, someone who can conjure up a goal, even if they don’t do a whole lot else, would be invaluable to us.

As things are a bit slow, question for any programme experts.  Well, not so much of a question but an observation.

There’s a Killie v Cowdenbeath programme on EBay with a day to go that’s £98 😬

Must say I was surprised, I guess Killie programmes of that vintage just be really sought after…

I think Cowden homes from that era are pretty rare as well, especially pre 1950.

Killie programmes from that time are expensive.

Just need to look at your screenshot 14 bids on it!

Notice that was played at (New) Lesser Hampden (Park). I thought I'd seen that they'd played there regularly in the past, but was this actually a regular occurrence or was there a reason the big stadium couldn't be used for that game? 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I can remember them playing there sometimes in the 80’s.

There’s a good article here with some nice pictures, says that first team games were played occasionally from the mid 70’s onwards, to protect the main stadium pitch, and they also played most of 98/99 season there.

On the topic of programmes, someone in my group chat got this belter in a joblot.

Anyone know the final score?

 

PXL_20221122_213311214.jpg

We won 4-0.

The match was actually played on the following Tuesday night (27th). 

Hampden was hosting the League Cup final on the 25th (an old extinct team by the name of Rangers beat Celtic 3-2). Fat Sally scored a hat-trick.

Headed down to the Crossgates friendly for my first game in a few months. Get it’s a friendly and we’ve made changes but we look poor! 

Boy in the middle (think it’s Osborne) looks way off it! Crossgates seem the more dangerous and unlucky to be behind at half time.

Osborne went on loan to hillfield swifts and couldn’t make there bench he is miles off it and always has been, good for some boys to get minutes, would like to see left back trialist again not the centre mid unfortunately, dunno how we come away with the draw crossgates battered us 2nd half

Typical bounce game !

Osborne has been on loan at Swifts and is, in my opinion, no where near good enough. Think it will be his last game for us.

Crossgates were the better team but we did have boys playing who have had limited minutes this season. 

Some of the players are options but shows we don't have much depth.

They are only friendly matches but that is 2 draws now against Swifts and Crossgates this season. Who would have thought it a few years back!

That was bloody dreadful last night, friendly or not. Crossgates should have won at the end. Be under no illusion, there is very little difference, if nothing, between us and Crossgates now. The only shining light, like most of the season, was Gilmartin, shame he is a loan and will be gone by the end of the season.

As the Lowland League gets stronger with the promotion of Darvel, Linlithgow, Pollock and Auchinleck over the next few years, I genuinely worry about us dropping down to EOS within 5 years or less.

If we drop down further, I worry about the existence of the club. This is the result of neglect in management of the club at the top level over many years along with teams who have significantly better infrastructures, finances and larger fanbases. 

This is the worst Cowden team I have ever watched within two decades of supporting the club. Osbourne showed last night again, he is not good enough to play at this level. 

The loan of Chris to Rosyth is puzzling to me. I do think the guy has never been a fair chance in the team. There are at least 5 players I would loan to that club before Chris. Rosyth have got a decent player for the level.

The jury is out for me on Maurice now and I will happily air this openly to anyone, he's had enough time with two separate teams, including the team he sourced himself.

On a more positive note, the club shop is looking tremendous with a great product range. It is the best it has ever been.

Don’t get this love in with Chris, he was a poor signing who came from a poor side in the weakest league in the pyramid.

He can run but I suppose a load of other headless turkeys will be doing much the same this month.

Wonder if the club are trying to do any promotion for the Celtic B game, bearing in mind their big team are still idle?

Hope the club ask Celtic to advertise it on their various social media sites, chance it’s could attract a decent amount and provide some income.

While the thought of hordes of either of the uglies marauding round Central Park isn’t an appealing prospect, like to think that any making the effort to watch their youngsters might be relatively normal.

I’ve said in the past that Chris has barely had enough game time for fans to form a fair opinion, and I stand by that. Two starts is it and a handful of sub appearances? 

We don’t see him in training, so the coaching staff must see something in him to bring him back this season, and now they have only loaned him out and not outright released him.

He scored a couple in his first few games for Bo’ness Athletic, same level as Scott Sinclair, think he got injured again after that?

He seems to be well out of the picture firstly on loan at Livi United and now Rosyth.

Livi are the same level as Sinkys old side.

In the summer we needed to sign a lot of players quickly for the Premier Sports cup.

When you sign a job lot some are going to be good, some bad and some inbetween.

Telling that we signed a forward on loan from East Fife and had another two out on trial last night.
