Clyde FC; Season 2020-21

Recommended Posts

We can’t even decide if the league is going to get played yet. The Scottish cup scenario is a joke as well.

So if 22 games is accepted, then we need to understand asap what the decision is around the EFFC and Forfar games (unless I have missed something).

We could find ourselves bottom of the league if the original decision is upheld, and unless we have worked on tackling our defensive frailties during lockdown, could be in trouble.

Super! 

On the other hand, the upside is....eh, watching a poly bag blowing across the pitch again.

What original decision? As far as I an aware no decision has been made yet.

But of course that doesn't matter to the authorities, its just wee Clyde.

I doubt they can deduct points if they want to retain any pretence of fairness.

Especially after Kilmarnock and St. Mirren weren't punished by losing points not to mention the whole Celtic Dubai jolly.

Therefore I see two 3-0 defeats for Clyde being the decision.

Looks like Raith Rovers will not be punished by SPFL over Covid-19 postponement of a match in January.

No punishment for Celtic for their "minor" infractions of Covid protocols in January.

However, Clyde still await a judgement regarding our postponements early in December.

That's one year since the last time we had a midfield.

Let’s not forget Rangers players twice going to parties and no points deduction.

And of course yesterday running to applaud their wonderful fans at the gates of Ibrox yesterday  getting scarfs and the likes off them. But hayho it’s just exuberance after 10 years wait for a trophy apparently!

No doubt rangers punishment will be 4 points deducted from Clyde and leagues 1 and 2 shut down for another 11 weeks

Probably Rangers "investigated" and the result announced within 48 hours.

Three months to make a decision regarding Clyde is a joke.

Good to see McGlinchey confirmed. Hopefully he's fit enough to keep up in centre midfield, that experience he's got is invaluable and potentially exactly what we need after not replacing John Rankin, despite obviously not being the same type of player and won't make those third-man runs into the box.

Wonder when the last time we had a veteran of a World Cup in the squad? Had a wee check to see if Winters or McSwegan were involved in 98 but no dice.

Marvin Andrews probably. I think he was in the T&T squad despite being injured and unable to play.

Failing that, Brian Laudrup and Arthur Numan:lol:

Was thinking Marvin Andrews but after looking him up he was injured for the 06 World Cup where he would've almost certainly been in Trinidads squad otherwise. His replacement was Brent Sancho who some might have heard of from a spell at Dundee

Andrews was definitely in the squad.

Albertz?

Got 3 caps but wasn’t in any world cup squads.

I actually thought Andrews missed 2006 too but as has been said he was injured but still travelled as part of the squad.

Aye I misread the article. Says Brent Sancho replaced him which I initially thought meant in the squad but it was in the starting 11.
