Can you imagine if we were forced out of Broadwood and had to find a new home.

Which Council, sponsor, corporate partner or potential ground sharer would touch us with a shitty stick?

What are the Keans up to these days? A name change might actually now be a great thing for us given what we've allowed to happen to the current one.

🙈🙈🙈 Who in their right mind thought this was a good idea.

Totally embarrassing, after all the press coverage of his move ( which he wanted )taking him back is just making us a laughing stock.

I'm sure the tone deaf idiots will step up and fill the financial void that will be created by NLL ending commercial partnerships. No doubt other sponsors will come under pressure.

For example, Caplan won't want bad publicity for sponsoring the team that employs Goodwillie.

Some of our supporters thought the furore would only last a couple of days.

It really is incredible how stupid some folk are. I'm haufdaft but I could see this coming a mile away.
 

 

Caplan has given his thoughts on the owners forum via some "intermediary" in the last few days.  If you are an owner it is on page 2 of the "would you have DGW back" thread.  Given it is a private forum, I won't be posting what he said but thought I'd mention it.

Unfortunately, as I understand it this is true. I don't know of the second entity but one is an individual who's been a considerable and long-time sponsor of Clyde. It would appear that the board has had to relent here under financial pressure from said sponsors (though who knows how our other ones will all feel now), and also under threat from fans vowing to push for an EGM if Goodwillie's return wasn't secured. We all know how easy it would be for large-scale regime change at the club given our ownership structure, and we all know the sort of characters that would be sniffing around to replace the current board. In this regard, I do have sympathy for the current custodians whose choice appeared to become a toss-up between signing Goodwillie and facing financial and structural crises that would destabilise the club's future - immediate and potentially long-term - enormously.

In spite of this, I think the board should've held firm and stuck to their guns. The present - and coming - shitstorm was an inevitability, and quite why the "Goodwillie Legend" brigade thought this wouldn't do serious damage to the club this time around is completely and utterly unfathomable. NLC are now tweeting that they will review "all commercial partnership arrangements" with the club, which is really quite an ominous message given they're not even a club partner. There are folk on Twitter aggressively tweeting the rest of our sponsors, and even digging deep enough to find people who own or are involved with said sponsors to ask for their views.

I'm dismayed at how all of this has played out. It's entirely possible that we have only seen the tip of the iceberg so far today. All this just to placate a number of people with a massive hard-on for a 32-year-old striker who recently demanded a move away from the club they're supposedly diehard supporters of. Deary me. 

Great post. If true I do understand and sympathise with the catch 22 this brings but this is a terrible decision and one that in the short time might secure League One, which probably would have happened anyway, but in the long term destroys the fading credibility of this famous club.

If this club is to survive and that is an open question so mismanaged and poorly directed has it been for at least 30 years it needs a complete reboot with a strong brand rebuilding, clear leadership and outside your manager you have none, and direction. I am totally unconvinced your Board have any credibility at all. 

Clearly there is no point firing people without better alternatives but frankly this decision is so obviously divisive, wrong and brand damaging I don’t know where to start.

tragic.

Imagine being so obsessed with a 32 year old rapist c**t who honestly isn't even that good of a footballer that you threaten to withdraw financial support if he isn't brought back. You'd think it was Kylian Mbappe that we were talking about here with the way these rape apologists are willing to completely f**k up the future of our club just to have him here. 

 

Honestly, after all this club has been through with going into debt in 2004, dropping all the way down to the bottom tier of Scottish football, the constant battles of trying to find a new stadium, potentially moving to East Kilbride and changing our name because we were in such a bad place and then finally getting out of debt and putting all those things behind us, a few rape apologists want to bring this club back down into those dark times. That's exactly what's gonna happen when sponsors won't go anywhere near us and I hope them and the Clyde board are happy with their decision.

Very noticeably the supporters of this signing have gone quiet very quickly. 

The true reaction of the signing will be when he plays his first game rather than comments on an online forum

Though to be fair the number of comment on here today will probably be the same as the number of fans at the first game

Most of the mouth pieces who supported this will be happy to see us playing at a junior park in shettleston or similar anyway. It will be painted as all NLC’s fault as they sing and cheer on our rapist captain for another season and a half till he retires.

I was going to say you can go and play at Caley Braves' soulless cage as it's right next to the River Clyde, but I think NL own that as well. Airdrie's stadium is a bit full, you're left with EK or Hamilton?

The true reaction of the fans will be shown by those sitting quietly or not turning up.
Not the idiots who chanted "we want our Captain back" when he was a Raith Rovers player.

As a Clyde fan this is humiliating both for my club and personally. I'm certainly not looking forward to the snide remarks at work tomorrow.

I'm totally demoralised by this decision and my hopelessness as to the future of the club. We've went from a club aimlessly drifting to actively self harming.

All because someone had a stauner for a (almost) 33 old who wanted to play for another team.

Finally, if Danny Lennon supported this loan signing he should resign along with all the other c***s.

What do you want us to say? Those that wanted him back have commented to say they are delighted to have Goodie back. What's the point in then getting into arguments with other posters that are always going to view it differently?

Why would Lennon not support this loan? 

After all he has final say on all players coming to the club.

There is no way he would have turned him down on a footballing viewpoint together with the comments he gave when he initially moved to RR

Considering he’s at Rangers tonight on the bench, I’d say the manager supported this.

Majority of Clyde Posters went every week during his previous spell and cheered his goals & not a whimper from you all - Two faced b*****ds

Posters from other clubs were never on our thread bar the odd troll & Only jumping on bandwagon because Val and FM comments after he signed for Raith -Media Darlings and overall sad b*****ds

What i do know is DGW deserves a chance to have a career, job & life, Not hanging from a tree because of a witch hunt mob..

Seems its ok for someone to come out after a 20 year strech for someone who has commited murder and taken a life but not a footballer who was "allegeded" of a conviction because he is a sportsman..!!

Plenty of you should be thinking of what your posting on a public forum and remeber like me you dont know the facts of the "alleged" offence

Roll on Sat and back to talking about the fitba

Agree most people who are happy to have them back will either have said so or chose not say.

Basically you can’t have an argument with someone who doesn’t say anything

Though I am happy to raise my head above the parapet now and again to get shot at

How do you think this will play out over the next few days, weeks and months?

Will it have an effect on our ability to bring in sponsorship?

Does it do our reputation long term damage?

It's it worth it for a 33 year old striker coming towards the end of his career?
