Clyde FC; Season 2020-21

Recommended Posts

Cunningham was the name that came to my mind at first after seeing he was released by Hamilton earlier.

Would be an excellent signing but we really need bodies in other positions.

Trouble position hopefully the boy hits the ground running. A loan hopefully means no major dent in the budget and that can be used to build out the midfield and central defence along with any other loans we can get done too.

Think this gives us an even clearer indication of our budget next season. I can’t imagine for a second that Shiels was ever our first choice for a left back. Out of the rumoured Quitongo and, I’d assume, Adam Livingstone, Shiels is by far the least experienced option. I sincerely hope that he does a good job for us next season but given this appraisal of him on the Dumbarton thread, I’m not holding my breath:

Quote

Matthew Shiels - I don't know why we bother with Rangers loan players. Matthew Shiels, a striker turned winger, turned left-back can go into the pile of instantly forgettable Rangers loan players we've had. He was injured for ages, played and didn't look up to much and then found Jordan McMillan preferred over him in his new natural position when Rico Quitongo got injured against Falkirk. His parents then kicked off when a comment was made in the stand about that reflecting on his ability. He's tall, quick and strong. But he doesn't appear to fancy the physical side of the game much, and I really don't think he's a defender. 1/10

Having had a look at Dumbarton’s thread, it sounds as though he was pretty rubbish on loan at them last season.

Hopefully has improved in the 9/10 months since he left there.

Still only 19, so have faith in Danny and Alan to bring him on. God knows we need a left back, so good news at least for now !

Will obviously give the new signings a chance but a back 4 next season of Bain, 2 of Rumsby/Howie/McNiff and Shiels really doesn't inspire me with confidence at all.

Can’t recall anyone we’ve had on loan from the rangers being up to much.

Going back a wee bit but Alex Walker and Alan Lowing were good for about 10 games each

SHIEL(d)S

Joking aside

Cant be on a bigger wage like many bench warmers last season who couldnt get a game in front of a couple average guys from 21s. many times last season (Wallace. Smith. Petkov to name a few)

Dumbarton said Lang wasnt up to much , not a criticism of their opinions but like this young lad he hardly played enough games to get a reference bit like TM in his 6 odd games..

Yes weve had better players from Ayr United than sevco in my time but this season is going to be a very tough one for us more than ever & league status rebuilding again slowly more important that signing a recognised potential guff player (See Above)...

Welcome to our club and wish him all the best..

I'd rather get younger players from Rangers with a bit of potential than sign cloggers fae Annan like we continually did under Chapman.

Fingers crossed it works out for both of us. It took Livingstone a while to settle in last season, we need to give Shields a chance too.

Looking at the incomings and out goings, it is going to be a bigger struggle this season to survive. Danny is probably bringing in the best the club can afford.

Cove won't be shipping 6 at Broadwood that is for sure.

On Shiels, he looked like a lost boy when they brought him on in the game we won in Dumbarton. McStay was in one of his beast modes and had the run of that side of the pitch.

I'd also say though that playing left back for DL is different than playing left back for Duffy. He'll be expected to defend higher up the pitch and in wider areas, where pace rather than physicality is important. Makes it even more crucial that we sign a quality CH and energetic midfielders. If we are playing a deep, tight back four I think he'll be a disaster.

I wonder what input our various directors of recruitment and the like had in this. I think it's been obvious that DL's major flaw has been some absolutely awful signings.
