With apologies to Yazz and the Plastic Population.
Life is still not fantastic if you’re a Steelers supporter; the team are bottom of the Elite League table and on the receiving end of mirth and derision from everyone else in the EIHL family. However, we have a new head coach in place and between ourselves: have a bit of hope. Read on for my weekly musings.
With six wins in seven games, Fife have had the best start to the the season that they could have hoped for. However, with success always comes tests and this week the Flyers will face their first greatest test in the form of Sheffield, Nottingham and Cardiff.
With the announcement of the Philadelphia Flyers new mascot Gritty, something of a debate occurred on the CTP group chat; which EIHL team has the best mascot?
I am unqualified to make this decision. All mascots are valid, and bring joy and entertainment to thousands at each game. However, in the words of hit movie Highlander; “There can only be one!”. Who’s mascot will come out on top? What exactly is Lightening Jack?
And just how many people can I make angry in one post? Let’s go!
Time again to get those creative writing juices flowing once more and to write about the Steelers. It has certainly been a week and a bit over here in Steelerland, a week that again won’t be remembered for the right reasons. Remember though, these are my own personal views and not that of the Sheffield Steelers.
With Fife’s hopes of achieving a higher position in the Challenge Cup diminished by the Clan and no further CC games to play, they can fully concentrate on what matters most – racking in those league points and defending their Gardiner Conference title.
It’s the first day of October, that time of year when most of our American cousins start to get really excited about the upcoming season, we are three weeks in. The standings are all over the place due to games played, won or lost and the Fife Flyers are celebrating their 80th birthday in style with a game celebrating their longevity. “It was a good event, a lot of fans came out to watch. It’s a pretty big achievement for the club and it was an honour to play in.” I got the chance to catch up with Kirkcaldy boy Reece Cochrane to talk about all things Fife Flyers.
