Clyde FC; Season 2021-22

Recommended Posts

This is pretty much what I was thinking but the reality is imagining the fallout if the lower leagues were allowed fans and the top tier weren't. Be pretty funny though and seeing the maths done shows the viability on paper. Comes down to can the Club's manage it effectively though.

 

Best we can hope for, I think, is season ticket holders being allowed to attend. The club will already have all their details on file and most should live locally to the ground.

 

It's all pie in the sky stuff anyway. We've just had more restrictions brought in today and all fans attending games being paused.

Find it hard to believe that most of our season tickets live local to the ground.

I'd be surprised if even 50% live in cumbernauld or in close proximity to there.

I live in Ayrshire and have a season ticket every year so if there was a radius limit I would have no chance of being allowed in

Scottish football is in bad nic for sure, but I'm not sure Clyde are significantly worse off than others. Championship and some  Lge 1clubs paying fulltime wages with minimal income are every bit in jeopardy as wee teams paying PT wages. 

I'd guess the clubs who've sold season tickets or electronic tickets like ourselves have, in fact, been provided with a mortgage. That advance will be used to pay wages until it runs out.

Some shitty single camera nailed to the main stand is unlikely to generate much in the way of ADDITIONAL income.

I hope am wrong and before we know it, we're back to hammering the big teams and toiling to pick up a point against the bottom of the league teams.

Very grown up, what's your problem ?

“Very grown up”, going to refuse to take that from a man that used the term “Fishy Sturgeon” and called people that *checks notes* go shopping are idiots. Absolutely roasting patter. My problem is your comment stinks of raw gammon wrapped in a few pages of the Daily Mail.

We will be in the same boat as the majority of part-time clubs that rely heavily on match day income. We have been sensible in that we don't have a big squad and a number of them are loan signings.

Never even knew we were playing till I checked Twitter this morning.

Imagine that's the idea to avoid anyone turning up. Only knew beforehand we were playing Cumbernauld Utd last week because Cumbernauld Utd twitter feed.

Idiots go shopping is what I said, many not wearing masks, not distancing. Sturgeon ? Just don't like her 'over cautious' approach that's all. Don't read any newspapers these days,so don't blindly follow any herd. Back to the football debates now.

I agree with your comments re Sturgeon. A week ago I posted a simple question ‘has Sturgeon sounded the death knell of Scottish football?’

This post was taken down and I still await an answer as to why.

I'd be interested to know the situation regarding use of the stadium.

Will we be paying a large rent for what amounts, with no crowds of hospitality, to pitch hire?

Could this put us in a more vulnerable position relative to other PT teams?

The rents about £30k a season probably wouldn't be much different if we are having to pay for the upkeep and maintenance of our own stadium.
