    Russia - The World Cup

    It was a good tournament but personally still think the Brazil one was the best for ages in terms of entertaining football.

    Cowdenbeath -V- Inverness CT

    I loved the look of Col and McCart in the back 4. Saw them in friendlies and the communication between the two was immense. Always shouting at the defenders and midfield. Controlling the formation and balls being played.

  6. RIG has pretty much nailed last night's performance for me. Until we scored the equaliser we were all over the place and showed an alarming reliance on long, high balls to the two target men up top. I sincerely hope this is not a sign of things to come. I've seen Tom Walsh twice now (@Keith and Cowdenbeath) and really like the look of the lad. A very elegant and graceful player and not scared to have a pop. Looks to be an inspired signing from Robbo and Co. and would be in my starting XI for Raith and Hearts. Also, another towering performance at the back from big Coll. Love his attitude and enthusiasm and would suggest he's nailed on captain material. DUFC's loss is certainly our gain. I thought Joe Chalmers and Fash Austin had nights to remember. Austin I like as a player but he really struggled against the Cowden defence which is rather alarming. Given that he's a Leven loon and the animosity between East Fife and Cowden I'd have hoped he's have been motivated to get one over them but was far from convincing. In terms of new faces I thought Rooney did ok but wasn't as convinced by White as Mantis. Works hard and holds the ball up well enough but I'd have liked to have seen more end product. Decent enough away support for a Tuesday night in darkest Fife. I think Raith will be more of a test by which we can gauge where we are and will be watching out for the Hearts scoreline from my summer hols with interest.

    Yes Mantis, Jordan is an interesting player and his height gives him an advantage with a greater eyesight field of view …..smile.

    It was a reasonably exciting and dramatic competition. Not really 100% convinced about VAR though. I`ve not studied it enough in detail but what outcomes would have potentially changed without it. i.e would France still be Champions?

    Not only did the third look offside, there appeared to be a handball too as Doran took it under control. The first was an absolute beauty, as it came at the end of a decent move. White appeared to nod it down to Walsh and he curled it in from the edge of the box. Impressed by Jordan White. Very powerful player, great hold-up work and yet a fair bit of skill too. Better version of George if you ask me. Austin does the other part of the game but not sure he's going to give us 20 a season.

    A lot of promise for the future is coming home , me thinks
  13. A strangely unconvincing 5 - 2 win. We were slow out the blocks and took a long time to settle. The surface was poor which could be an excuse for some of the misplaced passes but some of the players still look like they need to blow the cobwebs away as there was some sloppy passages of play and a few defensive errors that fortunately weren't punished. All too often the final ball or cross was played behind a team mate or didn't get past the opposition player so it was perhaps not surprise when Cowdenbeath took the lead when Sheerin crashed a fine effort in from the edge of the area. Missed our equaliser as I had to help @alternative maryhill with directions to the pie shop but Walsh got his first competitive goal for the club and then bagged his second when he collected the ball inside the home half and head goalwards before sending a low drive in off the post. A fortunate but welcome lead. We were even more fortunate with our third when a suspiciously offside looking White won a high ball knocking down for Doran and he was able to steer the ball past McGurn. Into the second half and Doran was in the thick of the action again. Heading towards the left hand post he tangled with a home player and went down but the referee waved play on. We added a fourth after McGurn did well to keep out a White effort from only a few yards out but before he could recover Oakley lashed in a fine strike. Not so fine was the 5th goal which again looked like it might have been offside. Trafford hit a low drive from outside the box and it hit Doran who was trudging back out from the previous attack. With McGurn committed to his right the ball then went to his left with the deflection and ICT somehow found themselves 5 - 1 up. Cowdenbeath netted a consolation when Sheerin nabbed his second from close range after Mckay (I think) got into a bit of a mess trying to defend a loose ball. It was almost 5 - 3 when the home side saw their final shot of the game cleared by Tremarco. As I say above the scoreline looks good but it wasn't a great performance by any means. That said, Walsh looked impressive particularly when he appeared through the middle but too often he was stuck wide right. Austin had a very quiet game, very little came off for him so it wasn't much of a shock when he was subbed. Donaldson and Tremarco looked solid enough at the back but Mckay struggled under pressure and Rooney regressed as the game went on. A few days rest now for the players which is probably coming at a good time ahead of the next competitive match against Raith.

    Cowdenbeath -V- Inverness CT

    We have been very fortunate with the way these group fixtures have panned out. Playing weak Highland League teams with split squads may have engendered a certain level of fitness but was never an adequate pre season for the competitive season ahead. Thanks to the SPFL fixture computer we have now been able to step up by playing a much better Highland League team with a full squad and to step up again by playing a league side. Maybe something we should bear in mind for pre season next season when the fixture fairy might not be so kind to us again.

    I think football just found a new hero in Kylian Mbappe though .... not only was he very good, but he's just donated all his world cup earnings to charity. https://mashable.com/2018/07/16/kylian-mbappe-world-cup-charity-donation/#TV_Yl8c4bSqW

    Russia - The World Cup

    No Netherlands or Italy, a below par Brazil, Argentina and Germany. I wonder how those teams will or won’t shape the next World Cup. Sadly it’s in Qatar and I won’t be watching. Anyway, very few 0-0, VAR, lots of upsets, some new players emerging and all the main news from on the pitch. It was a successful tournament and credit where credit is due.

  26. Kingsmills

    Cowdenbeath -V- Inverness CT

    An away win by three clear goals is a good result whatever the status of the opposition or stage of the season. An encouraging start.
  27. We play Raith next Tuesday there will be no one there on Saturday!
  28. Kind of Blue

    Cowdenbeath -V- Inverness CT

    I will take a 5-2 away win against any lower league side as a good result, especially at this time in the season when the Robbo is trying to get his best side and formation.
