Clyde FC; Season 2022-23


Recommended Posts

With the expansion to larger benches/more subs there was always a chance that teams further up the chain could keep players they'd normally loan. There's no doubt that Jamieson/McAllister were exactly what we needed, so some credit needs to be given there.

Our issue is that the time to make additions is in May and we messed that up last summer. Hopefully we are set up to do better this year with the savings on Balatoni/DGW's wages and a couple of transfer fees in our pocket.

Still a gamble, as we are still fielding a number of players that aren't good enough.

Not surprised in the slightest that we haven’t brought anyone in. The recruitment team are worth their weight in gold…

Patience Patience.......I still feel there might be a rabbit pulled out of the hat !!!!!!!!

It's absolutely pathetic that it's March 1st and we've got no one else through the door yet. The squad needs quality reinforcements and whilst Jamieson and McAllister have looked good for the most part it's nowhere near enough.

The starting line-up and performance against Airdrie were great but I really hope that isn't seen as some kind of a justification for keeping things as is, especially since losing DGW and Balatoni. The bench is so thin, anyone other than Elsdon getting stripped was giving me the fear.

We're in a precarious position in the league, we really can't be taking any chances at this point.

Whatever your personal stance on his return is, for the club to come to a decision one way and then go back on it in a matter of days is absolutely pathetic. Entirely summative of the circus act we are at the moment.

Do we actually know for sure that the board made that decision last week? I know there was a lot of allusions to it, but I can’t get my head around what’s changed between then and now to provoke a volte face so quickly? Surely if you were in favour of the signing this week, then you would have been last week?

Is it actually confirmed? Only one report in the Courier, nothing from the club, Raith or the owners.

Alan Temple is one of the best regional sports journalists in the country. If he's saying it's happened, then it's done barring any technicalities.

Pressure from sponsors and fans over the last few days have forced Board to change their mind

It's an individual decision for every supporter but I honestly don't think I could bring myself to go and support Clyde every week even if it had been in my family for generations and had been a huge part of my life for 25+ years as Falkirk has been for me.
