  1. Clyde FC; Season 2019-20

    So that's us signed 20% of Annan's outfield team. I'm not saying they're not good players, but I'm not sure they're better. Notwithstanding, we were a different type of team from them. What's our strategy? Do we aim to be the Annan of Div 1 next year?
  2. Clyde FC; Season 2019-20

    Or it could be players moving on...who knows. Fair play to Danny, reportedly 'doing the business' at 9.30 on a Saturday night and at back at it again on a Sunday afternoon! He's some man for his years

    Hopefully more commanding in the air. This really breeds confidence in the defence. If he is shot stopper with decent distribution, then there's your upgrade!
  4. The Clyde FC 2018-19 Thread

    If you were a Greggs cashier, deodorant dealer in Bennetts or even a barmaid in Stirling and you could uplift your earnings by say 50%, why wouldn't you? That team-spirit and backing from the fans doesn't put bread on the table. I think we got really lucky with TL, RG, C McS etc, but we should recognise these boys could play at a higher level. If and I hope its if, any decide to move on, we should wish them well IMO
  5. The Clyde FC 2018-19 Thread

    Very bold Danny...I know we're a great team going forward but 11 outfield players! Will we play nearest the goal or use Ranks as a backsy keeper? Fairwell to the departing 6...none let us down and all will be ok for finding new clubs. Currie was not everyone's favourite but I think we could count his errors this season on the fingers of 1 hand.
  6. Annan v Clyde/ Clyde v Annan

    Where's that irony photo again? Annan protesting about our celebration taking time up when they, in their time honoured tradition, fell down and stayed down and dithered with every dead ball from 2nd min. Class told in the end!
  7. Annan v Clyde/ Clyde v Annan

    In that game they lost a goal, cheated a penalty, got our GK sent off and conceded a 93rd min pen...more than a match? Many would say we were poor from back to front last night but Annan only carry a 1 goal advantage. Do they have more in their locker? We know we can, and probably will be better on Saturday. If I was an Annan fan, I don't think I'd be counting any poultry. We should have some confidence; let's talk the team up.
  8. Annan v Clyde/ Clyde v Annan

    Match, hopefully not the tie, was won and lost with the penalty miss. Annan got a lift from this and scored pretty soon after with 1 of their very few attacks. We huffed & puffed and really only had 1 clear chance in the 2nd half which fell to DGW who reacted as if his boots were tied together. Annan have a formula of big guys, long throws, play acting and influencing the referee. Clyde's bench was strangely inert. This to me, suggests they are either incredibly assured or conceivably, somewhat flummoxed. I get the criticism of Nichol who was not the best in The Clyde team, but we did need some steel in the middle of the park. Ranks ain't available, so fair play to DL for trying to nullify Annan's "grit". Nichol didn't miss a penalty nor did he get bossed in our 6 yard box by a guy so small he could fit in one of the pies from the Annan pie stall which was adjacent to their gents'. Many including DL, comments on Annan's narrow pitch. I doubt they had it taken in a few yards just for our visit, so presumably Broadwood's nominative determinism will have Annan unable to play well due to the space on the park come Saturday.
  9. Subject to no BMX shenanigans?
  10. So the ref ignoring 2 elbowing incidents, awarding an EC foul when their no 19 jumped up in the air with a shrill scream, failing to see DGW being nutted when the ball was on the ground and the series of invisible fouls in the last five mins were "competent"?
  11. Agree with David W. I saw Ranks as a driving forward midfielder, but we didn't seem to have the same stopping power in the middle. Strong result from Annan tonight. Hopefully Stenny come out all guns blazing on Saturday and the game goes to ET!
  12. Made hard work of that particularly in the last 20 mins. Duffie, Love were both unexpectedly brilliant! Where in the name did we get that referee from? Edin dived and screamed like wee lassies but also weren't shy about leading with the elbow, none of which was noticed by the ref or his incompetent short-haired assistant. Was this the same knob jockey that tried his best to hand Annan a victory at Broadwood last month? Hopefully he's a mile away from any of our remaining matches!

    Two 1 on 1's v QP on Saturday typified Currie's ability. Some harsh critics out there, have you seen his understudy?
  14. Clyde v QP

    In the cool light of Sunday, BYoS makes some valid points and observations. I agree the 1st looked offside and I think QP had, or to be mean, were given more possession in the 2nd half. Of all L2 teams, QP seem to have an energy and skill that impresses, however they do seem to switch off at times.

    The decision on the Elgin matchday floored us...I hope and feel this might spur us on. The dressing room, the bench, the backroom and the support...I wouldn't want to take on any of us.
