Clyde FC; Season 2020-21

Recommended Posts

Pleased with both those contract extensions. For all the things Lamont does that annoy me, the positives outweigh the negatives. Very pleased Love has signed on.

 

ANNOUNCE RAY GRANT ON 5 YEAR DEAL.

What's everyones thoughts on Syversten? Resign or release?

I'd keep him. He definitely has plenty to offer going forward. It's just a shame a Queens Park hammer thrower ruined his season last season.

Definite resign for me, but I can understand if not given he was out all season. He was looking good before some QP clogger kicked him (at least that’s how I remember it).

 

ETA: His ability would definitely have helped us last season. He’s still at uni here so I don’t think he’d be on a huge wage.

I’d release him hardly played since he’s been here. Can’t afford to waste any money on someone so injury prone especially in these times.

It would depend on how much he wants. He would be a decent backup striker but he has had quite a few injuries since arriving, sure I remember something regarding concussions.

There's a difference between a player having a long term injury and being injury prone.

If he's going to be fit for the start of the season I'd hope we can give him another chance. In the little we saw just before his injury, it did seem he'd been working on his weaknesses, namely strength, holding the ball up and playing with his back to goal.

We didn't get a chance to see if it would really make a difference to his game but he certainly seemed intelligent enough to know what to work on.

I'd agree he's not really injury prone. He had a terrible tackle on him vs QP which injured him go unpunished and effectively end his season.

I'd definitely sign him up for next season to partner/ back up Goodie.

I’d keep him personally, I thought the tail end of the promotion season and the start of last he was in good form and was chipping in with some goals. Shame the injury ruined his season. Definitely think his ability to run at defenders and getting a ball in is something we missed a bit.

Tough season ahead again. Huge reliance on Goodwillie and no Tom Lang to steady the ship at the back. Big chance for Lamonty and Mcstay though this season.

Cove will be a huge upgrade on Stranraer that is for sure.

Lamont needs to be more consistent this season. His final ball is very poor 9 times out of 10 but when he does play that killer pass it usually ends up in a goal.

Would like to see Grant and McStay sign on again as well as 3 or 4 new faces, if possible.

I can see Cove finishing in the top 4.

We've only got 10 players signed up so far. I'd wait and see how the rest of the signings go before before deciding how tough a season it will be.

There's plenty of time yet.

I'd keep Syvertsen, he's an exciting player and one that can find the net. I just hope the year out doesn't f**k him too much. If he can agree decent enough terms then aye, keep him.

I wouldn’t keep Syvertsen unless it’s on peanuts or pay as you play, we can’t afford injured passengers. 

Also can’t fall into the trap of signing players who have done an alright job in the past, we need improved quality (not easy I know) but that is what Lennon and Moore are payed to do. 


To be honest Love and Lamont should be the last to sign from last year, anyone from now on has to be an improvement on those already there. (Obviously not the case in Goodwillie or Mitchell as improvement on these two is impossible at our level) we are fortunate to have them we know that.

Proper playmaker midfielder who imposes himself on the game in an attacking sense, Left back CH and support for Goodie is minimal. Ironically exactly the same as last year! Livingstone would be welcomed back that would be a start.

Surely you would like to see Ray Grant signing on?

Of course I hope to be proven wrong.

However the rhetoric coming from the club in conjunction with where we are. Suggests to me unless we recruit significantly better than we did last summer we will struggle.

Sad truth is that the past several close season signings have been generally poor to embarrassing. Guys who never kicked a ball, those who didn't make it beyond pre season kid-on-cups and some who looked out of place and were let go of before or at the end of the term.

I'd love to believe that the shake down that has hit Scottish Football will mean that us AND other teams in our mini league, will have some decent quality to choose from. Having yer man Diamond to work with Danny to act as a critical pal, will hopefully improve our ability to track decent prospects.
