Clyde FC; Season 2020-21

Recommended Posts

Morrison against Shiels has been pretty terrifying and I'm a bit unsure on the goalie but doing fine other than that.

Looking okay going forwards but more than a bit suspect at the back. Goalie looks okay, had a cracking save.

Do Clyde get compensated?

I'd certainly be asking for jt

It'd be fascinating to know the reasoning behind bringing in another goalkeeper when we need a player or two elsewhere on the pitch.

Pretty poor performance tonight. Struggled to build up any real number of passes.

The new keeper looked poor until he made a couple of good blocks late on.

Chris Johnston looked decent when he came on, and Bain did more going forward in his short appearance than Robertson managed in the whole game. Very few positives though.

Falkirk deserved to win. Six changes probably didn't help us but highlights there's still work to be done.

I’m assuming that team was picked with an eye towards the league starting. Difficult to take much from the game, it was played like a friendly really but we certainly created very little. Then again, with Howie in midfield, were we ever going to? The new and unnecessary goalie looked okay. Quite big chap.

Falkirk definitely deserved win, game hinged on cheap penalty conceded right at the start of 2nd half.

 

falkirk tv, footage, commentary , camerawork  = shambles.

We seemed to do okay first half passing the ball through the pitch (didn't see first 10), then shipped an awful goal from a punt over Rumsby's head which was well converted. Falkirk will feel the same about the one we scored. Starting the second half like that is criminal though and Cuddihy, who had another decent game, has had a wee shirt-pull at players in the box before. We didn't really get back into the match after that, didn't keep the ball and Falkirk could have won by more.

Goalie did fine but looked clumsy. I don't think he is clumsy, I think he just looks it.  A couple of excellent saves and his distribution was good. The drop off from McNiff/Lang to Rumsby/Lang is stark.

Howie in midfield.... Not for me, but we probably wanted him to get a start. I know Robertson played right back for Aberdeen; I thought he was solid in an Iain Gray sort of way. Shiels does some stuff really well, looks like a footballer, then randomly scuffs the ball fifty feet in the air. I can see why we've signed him as he might be decent by the end of the campaign, with a few blips on the way (almost certainly against Peterhead). High ceiling, low floor. Probably benefits him if the crowds don't come back any time soon.

Goodwillie was excellent. Lamont and Love were invisible. Cunningham good first half but nowhere second. Bain and Johnston could have got us a point. I really hope Syvertsen is fit to start soon.

All things considered, we've played a full-time side and made half-a-team of changes. Won't ever start that team again. I think we're well set up for Saturday.

The Falkirk TV production was absolute rubbish. Multiple cameras, all showing the same angle is just bizarre.

A pretty flat performance from us especially in the second half. Some strange choices too Howie in midfield with Robertson at right back. New keeper looked fine but a strange signing. Think Bain looks good at right back and was linking up well with Johnston.

Falkirk deserved to win but don't think they were anywhere near as commanding as the commentators made out and really only started creating chances when we were chasing the game.

Commentators were really poor if you are going to provide commentary then it needs to be unbiased as possible and would expect them to do some research on the opposition. The only Clyde players they really mentioned was Goodwillie and Johnston. We were also throwing the kitchen sink at them when bringing on two defenders. Based on that would rather have Pixellot too.
