  1. Queen's Park v Clyde

    Quote lodged in error. This is a painful fucking read, by the way.
  2. The Clyde FC 2018-19 Thread

    Conversely Freddy, almost all football-enthusiast colleagues of mine at our several worldwide distribution units knew of it, at least the bare bones anyway, being that of fielding the ineligible player. The collective, genuine response was "fucking amateurs". The length of time in between the verdict and appeal has, in my view, extinguished the interest for most outsiders to actually read the SFA's notes on it. It's now firmly in the "Yer strikers a rapist" category of insult, from what i've witnessed, because the truth is, people don't generally care about it and the small number who do (ie, US) with a few exceptions, trade their emotions as currency (chanting "f**k THE SFA" for over a month will REALLY have helped, won't it?) instead of diverting from the narrative to form a solid opinion. I suggested elsewhere that this short-term outrage may become a by-product of the appeal not being successful, due to the trail of buffoonery the SFA are known for, and i had no faith in the system to offer even an alternative sanction whatever case Clyde presented to them. I'd happily see McCrae and Petrie publicly flogged as an example, as we have been, but beware Sellick fans and their sympathies - loads of them were talking of buying Clyde STs and merchandise over the statement regarding Rangers in 2012 as solidarity. Arseholes. We mustn't allow ourselves to be used over this either.

    In a move that may surprise some, i agree. Frustration and anger at our position isn't going to shift any tectonic plates, but the horrific handling (which is what it is) of this case is definitely awakening a beast, even if it is literally a green-eyed monster. Our part in the error i think will be addressed one way or another, by us as a club, but a situation where a motion of no-confidence in the integrity or suitability of the SFA to govern might not be too far off either.

    If/When.. I genuinely don't think this group of players will lose another match together. I'd love to add 'this season' to that sentence- but i fear offers. Some legacy to either build on or to leave behind, as i agree- this side with three/four additions- a keeper, experienced no 5, a midfield general and (greedy) another forward to compliment DG (not understudy)- good to go if we keep these lads.

    Worst possible case is Annan on a Tuesday night. Still reasonably close enough for us to take a good crowd to the first leg. Edinburgh or home leg in final are straightforward.

    You'd prefer we lost two games??!!! Or just ask the SPFL to increase the deduction?
  7. The Clyde FC 2018-19 Thread

    Bullseye. Winning the title, as we deserve to at least have a level chance of doing, removes the room both for doing a Peterhead, and an additional two weeks of additional worry and stress after potentially losing just 5 actual matches of 36. If that (playoffs) was the best we could do then we'd gladly accept it, even more so if we slipped up in the final weeks. But it isn't, and we shouldn't.

    Can i hold onto this, just in case i need it to remind anyone, anyone at all, who might be at the risk of doing the same? It's just that this very act has been a staple defence of club policy/action at pretty much every turn in the last decade. I truthfully only felt it necessary to adopt it the odd time, perhaps, in order to win any given argument, such was its success. If reason and objectivity were in vogue in the first place, this probably wouldn't even be an issue connected to us being champions, in my opinion.
  9. The Clyde FC 2018-19 Thread

    You might be right. It's clear enough that i'm certainly not the most obedient or submissive lamb in the flock. This isn't news to me.
  10. The Clyde FC 2018-19 Thread

    Yes, it 100% absolutely is. Thank you. Of course i think i'm right, otherwise arguing it would be bloody stupid.

    More delegation!! f**k sake.
  12. The Clyde FC 2018-19 Thread

    Because SLW, that's exactly what this "attitude" is. It demonstrates absolutely f**k-all empathy for players efforts, despite the fact that its those very players who have got us there. Their loyalties, if the large majority of our players are as savvy as they seem, will be severely tested under those conditions. I suppose, in this instance, they can "f**k off if they don't like it", which as we all witnessed, was the "means" which very nearly and would justifiably have spelt the "end" for the club in the professional league after over 125 years. Of all the arguments i've endured, the idea that brazenly not giving a f**k how we go up, with the position we were in and remain in leaves me cold to the bone. It's fucking disgusting tbh.
  13. The Clyde FC 2018-19 Thread

    Nah. I don't imagime they'd be too bothered.
  14. The Clyde FC 2018-19 Thread

    Yes, i've watched a few open top bus parades, with the team in question displaying their self-esteem through the city. Canny whack it. Tell me that was a joke? Of course if offered it in August, or in any year, you'd grab it (promotion at any cost) . But this year i believe we have earned the right to feel that its a deserved title, as a collective result of all efforts, even if some of those have potentially ruined that one part of it. To say otherwise is out and out denial, in my view. Of course its not over just yet, but when it is, i can see a few proper tweenie tantrums if we cut Peterheads lead any shorter. At least i, personally,can say my critique was honest and not based solely on whether or not we succeed, which appears the case with many others.
