  1. No, there is a mandate that men aged 18-60 in Ukraine cannot leave Ukraine, but they can travel within the country for example from Kyiv to Lviv in the west, and they are not currently obligated to conscript. There is nothing about ex-pats being forced to return to Ukraine. I imagine they could if they want, but I imagine their clubs would not be happy about it.
  2. This game has to go ahead if at all possible, even if it's an under strength team from Ukraine. Contributing to a war effort is about more than just fighting with a gun on the streets. By representing your country you are giving it a platform on the world stage, reminding those at home why they are doing this, giving a couple of hours of respite from everything else that's going on, and hopefully seeing an amazing display of solidarity from 50,000 citizens of another country. The flip side of Ukraine not being seen in events like these is far more damaging.
  3. Not posted in this thread before but had to say that I thought tonight's episode was really good, top marks to everyone involved.
  4. Gamstop is surprisingly and remarkably effective in my experience.
  5. Denial > anger > bargaining > depression> acceptance. I think most people reached the fifth stage of grief long before today, anger has long gone.
  6. Can only repeat what everyone else says, that wasn’t competitive in the slightest, embarrassing to lose like that without Cove really trying much. The complete silence in the Ducket at full time was more than a touch eerie.
  7. No Brydon, no Wilson, no Healy in the squad. Only 16 players named of which 2 aren’t fit. Only question is whether whatever is going on happened midweek or today.
  8. By my count this will be Berwick's 2,324th league game as members of the Scottish League. Who knows if the 2,325th will ever happen. In most cases a demise like this would be met by some sort of co-ordinated action, at the very least I would expect someone to take a symbolic black and gold coffin and dump it outside the Directors Box, but I'm not sure there is enough cohesion or hope left in the support to even do that. Turgid 3-0 win to Cove. I'll let someone with more knowledge or desire than me preview the game properly.
  9. Some interesting views in this quote; Berwick boss John Brownlie says his side will change their approach for the return leg, noting: “We’re still in the tie, but we have to do a lot better than we did today. Cove will be very confident as they were far better than us today. “We’re going to change our strategy for next week – we need to get an early goal and a bit of luck as Cove are decent. We’re fighting for survival and if the players realise that we have a chance. It’s hurting, which is a good sign.” https://www.scotsman.com/sport/football/cove-rangers-4-0-berwick-berwick-on-the-brink-after-heavy-defeat-1-4925504
  10. I’ll be driving up, your train leaves Dundee at 18:22 and according to sat nav it’s 66 minutes from ground to Dundee station. Let me know if you want a lift.
  11. It’s worth noting that Cove were 4/5 when the match was originally priced up on Sunday night but the sheer volume of money on them has shifted the price to 1/2. Bet365 moved from 4/5 to 8/13 on Sunday night, and Betfred were limiting people to £100 max on Monday.
  12. I was at the Montrose v Brora game in 2015 and there were huge celebrations at the end when Montrose won. Maybe it was the novelty of the first playoff, maybe it was the come from behind nature with Garry Wood scoring a cracker and big Marv popping up when required. I just couldn't see anything to celebrate if Berwick won this year.
  13. 100% this. I've been thinking what if, by some absolute miracle, we managed to win the playoff, what would the reaction at the final whistle be? Pitch invasion and wild celebrations at the thought of going through it all again next year because more than likely nothing will change?
  14. The focus on change needs to be tightening up the defence before anything else, and also that Coughlin has a reputation as being good at that (mainly due to the number of 1-0 wins in 2006-07). However when I checked his stats, the last time he came in at Berwick, mid-season, we lost the first 5 games after he took over conceding 14 goals in the process. So hardly the immediate impact of shoring up the defence that we need. Pep will be unavailable as his league season finishes on 12th May and he has the FA Cup final the following week, so we should give Cough a go instead - it's absolutely no lose for him, keep us up and he's a hero, if we go down it's not his fault.
