I can also confirm that 'Colin The Colt' is NOT club Chairman Stewart McKenzie.

What about Stewart McKenzie posting about lifting the pitch and chucking Broadwood on twitter?

As mentioned by CTC, probably a heat-of-the-moment tweet borne out of frustration at recent talks re the pitch/stadium usage. 

Won't pretend to know the full details but I know that talks re the future of the pitch and Colts/Clyde/Rugby at Broadwood have been taking place on and off for some time.

Part of me wonders if NLL regret giving Colts such full and wide-ranging access when we moved in, particularly in terms of stadium pitch lets, now that Clyde/Rugby are both on the up again. However (again I'm not privy to full details) there will have been certain agreements made and contracts signed re this. Some of which relate to the lifespan of the current 'grass' surface on top of the pitch, and others which are tied to the lifespan of the foundations and groundworks underneath the stadium pitch.

A chairman should not be tweeting in the "heat of the moment".

I do not agree with everything our chairman says in regards to Clyde but I do know that it is considered and calm.

Your chairman represents the club. He should realise he is in a position of trust and should act like it.

In among Colin's ramblings and Stewart Mackenzie's outburst there is a warning to Clyde in there. 

Five years ago the Colts were top dogs as far as NLL were concerned. Why? Because they brought investment in the form of the pitch, refurbishment of the dressing rooms and regular lets.

The Colts thought that would last forever but now Clyde are bringing the investment in the form of Innes refurbishing the Arria Lounge, facilitating a music festival, general stadium improvement works etc. Clyde are now the top dogs in eyes of North Lanarkshire Leisure because they are useful to them.

What happens if the SRU turn up with cash wanting to develop the away stand into something else or NLL appoint a CEO or stadium manager who loves their rugby? The SRU will then become the main partner leaving Clyde and Cumbernauld Colts (if they are still here!) down the pecking order again. 

North Lanarkshire Leisure will rightly always place their own interests above anyone elses and I think that the Cumbernauld Colts are now realising that.

The Colts got complacent and thought they owned Broadwood and now they are suffering. Clyde need to learn from their experience and work to continually assert their usefulness to NLL to ensure they always remain the main partner.

All politics in this country is yokel. If this thread doesn't prove as much, nothing will.

As an Edinburgh City fan I really wouldn't know anything about clubs being dicked about by local authorities regarding stadiums....... :whistle

Think a year or 2 ago NL changed a lot of things and new guys took over and I remember it ended up pretty beneficial for Clyde.. maybe the don’t fancy Colts so much.

just a thought

Goodwillie can play at a higher level than Raith Rovers

 

It's almost as if there's some obvious moral qualm stopping the vast majority of football clubs from employing him.

I see that the circulation figures for the Sunday Post have fallen 12% over the last year.

 

I wouldn't want any of their journalists to lose their jobs.

 

After all, who would want skilled employees prevented from carrying out their trade they have spent many years developing.

Remember in January someone on here was claiming we were signing Keighan Jacobs the boy that just scored in the play off to get Livi promoted.

Do you think you need to be a Clyde fan of a certain age to truly enjoy Thistle being relegated?
