  1. Player(s) Of The Year At Your Club

    Other than in today's alright cameo against Scotland's worst senior side in about a decade, Lyon's shown nothing positive whatsoever this season. He and Hughes are the only two members of this squad I wouldn't be at all upset about if they were to depart. It's hard to predict what will happen with Syvertsen, but a player at this level who's as comfortable with both feet and capable of his trickery is pretty rare.
  2. Berwick Rangers 2018/2019 Thread

    It's easy to pin this all on Harvey, and his failures throughout his tenure have certainly played a large part in what's currently unfolding, but the reality of it is that there has been mismanagement throughout the entire club for the best part of the last decade, which has caused its gradual decline into lower-table fodder. The simple fact is that, for their own reasons, both Rovers and Berwick had to roll the dice in November, and - back then and then during their new managers' first months in charge - it looked for all the world as if Berwick's appointment was less of a shot in the dark and a much sounder one. The main issue to me appears to have been recruitment. Albion have ended up with the sort of squad that Horn was looking to build, while Berwick have ended up with a squad akin to the shitemare that Brogan handed over to Harper (scattergun loans, no-hopers from the juniors, very few players of any pedigree never mind genuine quality) through Harvey's various missteps. Ultimately, Harvey has to carry the can for that, especially given the manner in which Harper has managed to successfully perform serious surgery on his squad in bringing in guys with previous senior experience and getting his side back to basics. However, the club really ought to have found itself in a better position than Harvey being the stand-out candidate for the job in the first place. On the basis of what I saw today, Berwick have absolutely no chance of being a League Two club next season, whether that's with Johnny Harvey or Sam Allardyce presiding over your final games of the season. With the squad you've currently got, I don't think there's anyone out there who could do anything to reverse what looks to be inevitable at this late stage.

    Got to be between Lyon, Ferns, Hopkirk and Gorman for me.

    Cans, worms etc.
  6. Queen's Park v Clyde

    Keeps you in with a good shout of finishing 5th. I can see why it's such a cause for celebration.

    Who are the four teams involved? Clyde > Bankies > Clyde > Bankies makes two, unless I'm very much mistaken.
  8. Clyde v Berwick

    Berwick's failure to reach ninth, should that materialise, is entirely down to their club being a complete and utter joke at this moment in time. They've taken seven points (one from a game with us) from their last twenty league games. Their rivals for the trapdoor slot aren't exactly run like Man City and yet they've managed to progress rather than regress from the level of shite they were in November time. Clyde's incompetence has absolutely nothing to do with Berwick heading straight down, and I would hope, respectfully, that we can utterly slap them to recover our goal difference on Saturday. Of course, from there, I hope that things only improve for them and that they can, through either means, stay up.

    If we have people in the fan base (or willing volunteers outwith it) with the relevant skills, free time and commitment that those responsible for this error have shown in their time with the club, then by all means the latter part(y/ies) should - and, you'd assume, almost certainly would - step down. However, we can't just gut what is an already stretched group in terms of workload on the back of this.

    How's the stadium sale going?
  11. The Clyde FC 2018-19 Thread

    No complaints about the sanctions overall, but can't help but feel as though it'd have been a very different story for a team higher up the food chain. Given the punishment dished out to Hearts, the many mitigating factors surrounding the breach and the ongoing muddied waters surrounding such breaches, it still seems pretty harsh all-told.
  12. The Clyde FC 2018-19 Thread

    Would far rather the SFA upheld the initial sanctions and took further steps to shaft QP out of existence. Would take a positive outcome on either count, though.

    Why is the Berwick board not asking the question of John Coughlin? A man who seems to hold the club very, very close to his heart and has shown throughout his managerial career that he can have teams at this level organised and punching above their weight. At least bring him in to advise Harvey or something.

    That winner is all kinds of delicious. Balatoni had the best seat in the house for it.
