  1. You are including this seasons champion (21/22) going up but not starting the clock till the end of next season (22/23).
  2. Only 1 club can get promoted each year so no idea how you are getting 3 up in 2 years etc. The Lowland league is an absolute shit hole of a league. It is going to be 10 to 15 years before it even resembles what tier 5 should look like.
  3. Would be putting my money on them increasing the league to 20 teams and not relegating VoL.
  4. I wouldn't say Rangers or Celtic Colts hammering Gretna, Edinburgh Uni 9-0 etc. is very competitive. The Old Firm being permitted to buy a place half way up the pyramid and it being applauded on here, by some, is just an example of what is wrong in Scottish football. They already have a huge advantage over all the other clubs. From the guest club criteria any mention of the players being under a certain age has been omitted so we can drop the pretence that has anything to do with youth development.
  5. Would take Grant back. Lennon would get the best out of him and wouldn't expect his wages to be as high as last time given he's now been released by Alloa and Stirling. Really surprised to see where Stirling finished given I would have been happy for us to sign any of Leitch, Grant, Roberts, Carrick at the start of last season. Mikey Miller on loan from Raith to Stenny, Ross McIver on loan from Thistle to Alloa and George Strange at Dumbarton are others I would be hoping we are looking at. Would be a great start if we could keep Cuddihy, Cunnigham, Splaine, Livingstone, Jamieson and McAllister.
  6. Has been decent for us atheltic, a bit of pace and versatile. Would be keen for us to keep him but wouldn't be surprised if he has better offers. I think his best position is supposed to be right back but we've played him in midfield and lately centre half.
  7. That was shambolic, what a send off for our home ground for the last 28 years. Is 5-0 our joint heaviest defeat at Broadwood? We were racking our brains but couldn't think of a worse result. Really didn't think there was anything in the first half but thought it was a stonewall penalty. I think it was McAllister that got absolutely done for the second goal and Parry sold the 3rd. Defending for the 4th and 5th was pathetic. We did have a few good chances to score at least one consolation goal but passed them all up. Same issues as the whole season in that there isn't enough good players to go round. Dropping Cuddihy and McAllister into defence just makes us very weak in midfield. The subs brought on made us weaker with each addition. It's maybe just as well we are saying goodbye to Broadwood as we have kept some of our worst performances for the home games. Today, 5-0 v Montrose, 3-0 v Peterhead and both games against Dumbarton all spring to mind. I think Danny Lennon and the players have worked miracles to kero such a limited squad up but we really can't afford another batch of summer signings like last time.
  8. Broadwood is the only home I've known for Clyde and gutted to be leaving it. A lot of memories there good and bad. Can fully understand why the older fans viewed Shawfield the same and didn't have as much affinity with Broadwood. Although I think we all expected a move away from Broadwood, given recent statements from the club and council, it does seem rather sudden. It is pretty sad that the last game will be a low key affair. The late notice of it means a bumper crowd is unlikely and I know of some fans that are gutted to be missing the game due to work etc. I just hope the board have put a lot of thought into this move and have something positive to share in regard to finding a permanent home in Glasgow.
  9. NLC has been run by Labour since 99 so unlikely there would be any change. The SNP won the most seats in 2017 but Labour still ran the council with the support of the Tories. NLC has been a disaster for Cumbernauld. It was much better when under Cumbernauld Development Corporation, who were the ones that wanted Clyde to come to Cumbernauld in the first place. You certainly get the impression that NLC don't care for Cumbernauld and by extension Clyde. NLC must have plans for Broadwood. I just can't see it being for housing with the gym, bmx track and 5 a side pitches all next to the stadium.
  10. There is only a limited bus service to Cumbernauld train station and no buses to Greenfaulds. Then you've got about 2 miles to cover in Hamilton to get to the ground. Its doable but you're looking at the best part of 2 hours to get there and the same coming back plus train and bus fares.
  11. Struggling to see a great benefit in being able to open a club shop during the week in Hamilton when the majority of your fan base is in Cumbernauld and Glasgow. The impact on the home crowd is completely unknown as well. Hopefully the club has figured in a reduced home crowd in working out the finances of moving to Hamilton. I think we all knew a move away from Broadwood was on the cards but the move to Hamilton seems to have come about fairly quickly.
  12. Sad we will be leaving Broadwood. Its the only home ground I've known supporting Clyde. From Here the Dream Begins to leaving 28 years later with neither tenant or landlord got a good word to say about each other, it's a sad state of affairs. Cumbernauld should have been a fresh start but the club has made a mess of that. Can only hope lessons have been learned. I do worry that we have rushed through the groundshare with Hamilton. It's pretty awkward to get to from Cumbernauld or Glasgow. Of even bigger concern will be how long we will be grounsharing. We've been looking at locations in and around Glasgow for the last 10 years and have not found anything.
  13. It's just more hypocrisy from the LL as if a tier 6 league is won by an unlicensed team then the promotion place doesn't go to the next highest placed licensed team.
  14. Would have thought it would be more around the guests team than the promotion/relegation places. I can't think of another league that leaves two open spaces for guests teams at the expensive of clubs in the leagues below.
  15. The LL clubs are taking the piss now. You can't keep using the they were there first justification for their recent decisions. There is plenty of ex Junior clubs that have come across and spent a fair bit of time and money to get their licence to all but have the door slammed shut in their face. The LL clearly has space for two more clubs but would rather whore these spaces out to whatever B sides will pay the most money. You've also got a farcical situation were Vale of Leithen can continually finish bottom, season after season, with less than 10 points and a goal difference of minus 100 and potentially still not get relegated. That's despite there being about 100 clubs below them in the pyramid setup. The LL should be a fairly decent league by now instead it's populated by B teams, Uni sides and the husks of Edusport and BSC. There is no chance of any increased promotion to the SPFL with the current make up of the LL.
