  1. Clyde vs Annan

    The best result at Broadwood in absolute ages! Annan, a big physical rabble who had decent build up but no penetration, were ably assisted by the officials. I honestly thought the fuss was because the ref stopped play and the previously prostrate lump suddenly sprung to life and sprinted to the linesman. I then couldn't work out why we made the substitution Boyle for Lamont, but wee Jack really created for us. When McNiff went put to take the shy, I was amazed that Grant called up the big guys from central defence, I thought we'd be happy to play it out for a draw. McNiff does really well to follow his throw in. Superb result and refreshing fight from this team. Well done!
  2. Clyde Vs Elgin City

    I'm sure it did take a lot of work by the Council and volunteers so fair play to them. I also appreciate that vids, reports and previews are delivered by unpaid help and once again we probably owe them a debt of gratitude. Still would make the point that momentum is important...
  3. Clyde Vs Elgin City

    This has to be our target this season. Without such a target I think we risk sleepwalk towards the play-offs. Despite Danny's well placed rally call on the OS, I feel we, as a club, might be distracted. Slow with previews of games and slow to upload reports, interviews and videos. I also felt we got bullied by the SFA beaks on Saturday. The pitch at ko was in perfect nick but we looked like we took their garbage and didn't get the greelight till 1.30 / 45. Car park was quiet, semi regulars missing and the attendance felt lower with a kind of flat atmosphere. Maybe my paranoia but we then got v little from the ref.
  4. Clyde Vs Stirling Albion

    Never had a decent 1st touch as a player!
  5. Clyde Vs Stirling Albion

    The morons that I referred to sit behind the opposition dugout and know everything about match officials and visiting management teams, i.e. they know the square root of hee-haw and are an embarrassment to Clyde f.c. Didn't hear them and wouldn't endorse such garbage. Still think Stirling were dirty...
  6. Clyde Vs Stirling Albion

    I sit close by The Clyde Choir and wouldn't blindly defend them but I heard nothing that was in any way worthy of any criticism. In fact I think all Clyde fans gave the lad a very warm and respectful tribute on his exit. This is not related to my reply but I thought Stirling were particularly nasty today and the inept referee offered no protection. Stewart was booked for nothing more than a minor obstruction then the Stirling defender was not even spoken to for an assault on Lamont(?) On the far side. They repeatedly left the boot in and McStay and Rumsby were luck not be injured. All a bit unnecessary from one of the (allegedly )better cubs in league 2.
  7. Clyde Vs Stirling Albion

    Only thing worse than a bad decision is no decision. Football is MEANT to be part of the entertainment business. Can you imagine if you'd booked a family meal and were told the table could be cancelled an hour and a half before you were due your soup? Not good...Not Clyde's fault.

    Could get interesting...Is it better to finish 4th and play 2nd bottom of league 1, Brechin Stenny and Stranraer all in poor form, and take your chances with the 2nd / 3rd after a potentially thought the? This worked for both Stenny and QP in recent years...
  9. The Clyde FC 2018-19 Thread

    Appeal: Surely we need to try. It was the same error / offence / f*ck, up repeated. If we drove with a defective headlight between Glasgow and Edinburgh and back the following week and got caught; this would be one penalty not 2. Perhaps Hearts would have been done likewise if the SFA hadn't bought them to book after the 1st incident? If we'd been sanctioned after Cowden game we wouldn't have done it again the following week.
  10. The Clyde FC 2018-19 Thread

    Do you support the team or the club? For me I've never thought of Clyde as a membership thing... It's about the jersey. We have a committed squad who have played silky football at times and at other time been able to grind out results. There is no point in worrying about things you can't control. The team can't control the board, admin or the SFA. They can however determine how they play and their attitude. Heids up lads and keep the focus on maintaining our winning ways.
  11. The Clyde FC 2018-19 Thread

    All teams have 10 games left, so we all have to play the rest of the league. 6/10 at home should be an advantage. Earlier in the season I wasn't sure Broadwood was an advantage, but recently we've pulled a few results out the well at home. We've beaten every one of these teams in the last 3 months or so and I think these teams will be more nervous about playing us than we are playing them! We have P/head at home and so do Edin City so P/h might have a tougher run in. The dream is still on and with Thistle's distraction of a cup replay, there's the tantalising hope of meeting them on league business next season! Believe in The Bully Wee
  12. Clyde vs Edinburgh

    Well managed game by Clyde. Embra offered very very little and didn't step up when we went to 10 men. Defence looked pretty assured midfield battled well throughout but again we are wasteful with our chances. Brilliant result for us and football!
  13. Stirling Albion v Clyde

    After the Stirling big chance on their left wing, which brought out a fine save by Currie, I thought they chucked it. Clyde didn't really trouble them after our goal. As I have said previously, our problem is strike rate from attempts. Goodie is guilty of overplaying and should pass every now and then. Banksie and Boyle look a bit lightweight and although we have some nice touches from Grant and graft from Ranks; we lack a bit of gyle in mid field. I think we missed McStay and McNiff still looks uncomfortable in his new role. Fair play to Duffle for a competent show.
  14. Queen's Park v Clyde

    Not there so can't comment on the quality of play. M McN has been a dependable player all season but he is NOT a Left back. DL should be fair to the support and the player and not expose him by playing out of position. We have been so frighteningly wasteful in front of goal all season and today was the same. 1 goal from something like 15 attempts. P/ H scored 1 from 7 and EC scored 2 from 9.
  15. Clyde vs Albion Rovers

    Yep McNiff did look like a centre half fish out of a left wing-back water. WTF were we thinking unless we we were down to the bare bones? If Rumsby was fit enough to be on the bench why play an awkward back 3 and then make 2 changes when Cogs was replaced? If Lyons merits a semi perminant bench place why can't he assume a 1st choice role in such an emergency? By letting the worst team in the league into the game we got out of jail. No-one could have complained if Rovers stole a draw with that 2nd half show. Defence clear their lines, mid field create the advantageous imbalance in our favour and attack take their chances..simples
