  1. Is Josh Jack playing with Cuddihy as the two in-front of the back four in a 4-2-3-1?
  2. Noticed Kyle Gourlay made his debut for Hamilton tonight and BBC Sportsound were mentioning he made 3/4 good saves, and his name just reminded me of the dark times we endured as a club a few years ago after Barry Ferguson resigned but Gourlay was one of the reasons we survived in League 2 that year imo. Excellent news about Lang, but as others have mentioned still think we need 1 or 2 for midfield and then we start to look at the top end of the table.
  3. The font for “The Bully Wee “ on the back is absolutely barking. If that yellow away strip is true I’ll probably pick that up.
  4. That have me a right good chuckle during the game. He has been Mr Dependable since we signed him. Can’t disagree with anything said above by any of the other Clyde fans. Lennon still seems to think McNiff is a good option at LB for this league where as everyone else sees our biggest weakness. Despite some good performances across the board a stand out for me was Tom Lang, won nearly every long ball that game his way and once or twice he had to cover Howie out at the RB area and he stood his ground and defended brilliantly. Buzzing we have him back on loan as he is clearly good enough to be playing regularly with Dunfermline given their defensive issues.
  5. Would not say Rankins cross for the winner was a hiss hit of a cross, lovely wee dink over the top thought it was a cracking ball in after he completely fluffed the corner.
  6. Quick question. After the second goal 10 of the Clyde players ran towards their fans in the Clyde half of the pitch to celebrate including the keeper. The only player that didn’t was Darren Smith who slowly made his way back. I’ve seen it done before but if Smith had ran to celebrate aswell, would Dumbarton have been allowed to take a quick kick off and take a shot from the halfway line if all of the Clyde players were in their own half?
  7. I would like to see the same formation played just Smith in for Goodie, from what I have seen think Smith will be good in his (at least I think it is) his naturally position upfront.
  8. I would agree with most here, but Cooper Forrest and Fraser. (and later McBurnie) Cooper I thought was ok, better than a 1 anyway, 4/5 IMO. He didn't deal well with the big Russian CF but I think him and (based on tonights performance) Mulgrew are our best CBs. I thought tonight they were MASSIVELY let down by both full backs and McTominay., who allowed Russian players to play in behind them and run at Mulgrew and Cooper. Fraser and Forrest are our two best players (in this team) imo. Our goal should be to get them 1 v 1 against full backs. Quite simply that didn't happen tonight because a) they didn't get good enough service, IE at times players behind them should have fired a low passes to their feet rather than going to O'Donnell and Robbo first b) Because we had no good attacking CMs ready to exploit the space left when Russia doubled up on them both. Other than that I would agree probably. Though, now thinking about it McBurnie should be a 3. He was SO static with is movement it really hurt us.
  9. Also too many Scotland fans seem to think that "all that matters is we get a solid 11 for the playoffs" and think it will be tough but we will pull through the playoffs. It will be a fucking excellent achievement if we get through the playoffs. Based on the current group standing and our current potential opponents, we are MILES off the pace IMO.
  10. Just got home and read about 10 pages of this thread before caving into the rage after some of the utter drivel thats been said. Sorry rant incoming Russia were here for the taking, hands down, they were not a good as everyone (including myself btw) thought they were, but like Clarke and McGinn said in their post match interviews, we were great first 10/15 min, scored, then SHAT ourselves, dropped deep and LET THEM HAVE THE BALL. That's why they looked half decent, because we let them have the ball, and that was the story from the first Scotland Goal until the (80th maybe?) minute. Pass marks to Marshall, Mulgrew, and Christie. Thought Marshalls saves were absolutely brilliant, Mulgrew was the only one who took the ball forward from the back and had some goal saving blocks/tackles. Christie. My word where do I start, he was the only one who took the ball and was POSITIVE. Yes he lost the ball once or twice but he was wanting it constantly and was constantly turning to face the Russian goal and play forward, something we were crying out for since we scored. McGregor, McBurnie and (as a Liverpool fan it pains me to say) Robbo were WOEFUL, imo. O'Donnell was pretty poor aswell. Forest wasn't involved at all but I've always seen him as a game changer and we need to give him the ball more. Also, how in the world are these lads professional footballers if only Christie can put a decent whipped ball into the box? Rather than this floated, hanging in the air shite crosses which the Russian CB or keeper caught every time? Corners, free kicks, and crosses were dreadful. And don't get me started on those substitutes by Clarke. If that was McLeish or Strachan, everyone would be fuming. Rant Over 😂
  11. Long time lurker here but thought I should put something in this thread after that game. GIRFUY Cammy Bell [emoji16] Though I thought some of Clyde posts over the last few weeks have been hilarious. Shiteing ourselves after a few poor games and a few extremely poor defensive performances. Today we were brilliant. Organised, hard to beat and worked our socks off, while also playing some nice football. Petkov looked a bit lost at times in midfield but thought out back four and Mitchell were outstanding. MacKinnon obviously thought that if they put crosses and corners on top of our smaller keeper they would put him under pressure, but thought Mitchell dealt with them brilliantly. Raymond Grant was outstanding, and special mention to Ross Lyon, who last season I think everyone thought was just an extra pair of legs but thought he was impeccable out of position at right back, with and without the ball, going forward and defending I thought he was cracking. At a wedding next week but hope we can get something from the Forfar game to get a bit of form going [emoji106]
  12. Personally would have kept Currie and Cogill, or at least offered them deals for back up players as I think both can do a job in league one. Other than that I’m not to bothered about the others, Boyle looked a right good player when he first came in but feel off this season with a lack of game time and didn’t really show much when given the chance. Interesting that we are now likely to bring in two new goalkeepers.
