So much for nothing to play for. Move up a couple of places and it's 4 or 5 thousand pounds. A fair amount for clubs in this division.

Yeah, but do you think the players give it that much (or any) thought. In many cases, at this time of the season, it's only usually the teams with a title to win or relegation to avoid who put maximum effort in. The exceptions would be maybe a younger player getting a rare opportunity to play or a player who has missed lots of games with injury etc.

I wonder how many players actually know about this, or even give it a thought. Maybe something the board should be saying to the players to help with funds.

Id expect Lang and rumsby to be busy. Edinburgh are not the prettiest on the eye. Don't think there will be much in it.

 

1-1

I almost perversely want to lose this one if the appeal outcome on Friday is negative, provided Peterhead drop points. I can't bear finishing 3 points behind them knowing that if we hadn't fielded Fitzpatrick we'd have won the league outright.

Regardless of Friday, get them gubbed*, finish 2nd (at least) and keep the momentum going for the playoffs.

 

*I would absolutely accept a scrappy 90th minute o.g. off of Henderson’s backside to win 1-0.

Or the usual 0-3

There are loads of reasons for Edinburgh City to really push for second place, the figures above are certainly a factor but clearly the biggest motivation should be that I get back from Mexico on the Friday night before the 2nd leg and I’m grumpy enough when jet lagged without having to drag myself to Broadwood to watch our promotion dream die.

Anyway, we’ve been poor since the turn of the year, a mixture of injuries, players losing form and a general regression to the mean. With that in mind and considering Clyde’s excellent run I’d expect Clyde to finish 2nd but as per what I’ve already stated I’d love it to be us.

Last season think Stenny finished miles behind us 22 points over the season but saw us off in the play offs with ease.

It's momentum which gets you through. In 2014, Stirling were honking until March, then went up beating Least Fife. In 2016, QP sneaked in on the final day, gubbed Cowdung then us in the final- that being after we had secured our spot two weeks before. Stenny fitting the narrative last year also.

 

In the unlikely event of a compromise on Friday, i think we will go on to win the title. Not with ease, but the fixtures we have will command 100% concentration and effort.

 

Even if not, i think Lennon and his team will be focused on winning every match they play, even if you win your next two to clinch your title. A couple of faces will be worth seeing when hearig the results from Peterhead's meaningless match (or two), thats for sure.

Looking forward to seeing the Mighty in action..................C'mon the Bully Wee

With the deducted points possibly not coming back to us, a win for us should be enough to consolidate second place given both teams’ run of form. Our attitude of not knowing when we’re beaten will be tough to break down, and last week aside, we don’t often concede many goals. Hopefully we’re more clinical in the final third and make it a comfortable three points.

What are the potential for both these clubs. 

Id say Clyde easily have the fan base for championship footie. 

What about Edinburgh City ? How far could they go ?

What’s the best pubs around the ground to catch the Cup Semi Final? Or are we better off doing as said above and drinking in the city centre before getting a bus?

On the game, I think it will be a very scrappy affair, hoping that after his stunning goal at the weekend wee Banks starts. On his day he looks like a good wee player and hopefully we can utilise his qualities.

1-2 Clyde with Goody and Rankin the Clyde Scorers.

Edinburgh City could work away at it for a few years, then realise that Edinburgh isn't really a football city and already has two big teams suffering in Glasgow's shadow. They could then relocate to somewhere like Livingston...........oh, wait a minute
