There’s nothing like a local derby to get the heart thumping, even if it is a “diddy” one with Cowdenbeath. Still beggars can’t be choosers and there’s a lot of the former to be found in the streets of Cowdenbeath.
Of course any time we do play the smellies our thoughts turn to what is possibly the most famous tune in the East Fife songbook – The Cowden Family.
There’s another derby game going on on Saturday, albeit in a pre-season friendly, as Vancouver Whitecaps take on Seattle Sounders.
As I’m currently involved with the Southsiders supporters group and, as anyone who knows me already knows, a media whore (!), I’ve been doing some promotional work for the group in the build up to Saturday’s game.
I’ve just done an interview for Radio Sounders and bizarrely the producer of the show is a Partick Thistle fan from Maryhill and it all goes a bit Scottish with chat about the Fife, Cowdenbeath, Craig Levein and a rendition of the Cowden Family hitting the Seattle airwaves.
For those interested, you can listen to a podcast of the show HERE. It’s 28 minutes long and if you just want to hear the Fife stuff then head towards the end of it.
Mon the Fife. Mon the Caps.
