Clyde FC; Season 2022-23


Recommended Posts

Spoiler

 

 

The reactions of fans from other clubs towards Raith Rovers and Clyde noticeably differ. 

When Raith signed Goodwillie there was obviously plenty of vitriol directed towards the decision makers at Stark's Park but largely sympathy and support for the Raith fans. 

That differs sharply with the reaction to the Clyde support. There are, of course, countless decent Clyde fans out there but the fact that so many not just support the return of Goodwillie to their club but actively facilitated his return is really dragging the name of their club through the mud. Notwithstanding normal football rivalry, that is sad. 

Raith Rovers will, eventually, recover from this debacle. Perhaps emerging as a Club more in touch not just with their support but with the continuing changing societal attitudes in general. 

Clyde, I'm not so sure. 

They signed Goodwillie first time around which is maybe forgivable. Attitudes have changed since then. Mine have probably shifted. To do so again after all the attention is just awful, in my opinion worse that Raith signing him. The reaction of some Clyde fans in lauding the return of this "legend" is just shameful. It is tarnishing the image of Clyde Football Club perhaps forever. Do they not care about that? 

Edit: No idea why this is showing hidden comments. I'm old.

Clearly not, the short term benefits which aren’t even guaranteed seem to outweigh the long term damage. It may not be repairable damage either.

Well done to each and every one of them. It can't be easy giving up something you love doing because of what is happening but doing so makes a stand against people like David Goodwillie being allowed to swagger around like he hasn't ruined people's lives. 

I hope all the ladies are snapped up by another club as soon as and can continue in sport.

May be an image of 5 people and text that says "Clyde Ladies FC 4 May 2019 at 16:25 A few of the ladies team today supporting the men's teams vs Cowdenbeath CLYDE F CLYDE 16 Likes.1 comment"

Was this not when we were still chasing the league and Goodwillie captain?

Tbh, I didn't have a clue we had a woman's team although I suspect that is more due to the  club being useless at advertising the men's team in the local area over the last few years never mind the woman's team. Were they a foundation team rather than being under the club directly similar to how the u21's are? Not meant to undermine them just genuinely curious.

Was about to ask the same thing. This is the first I've heard we even had a ladies team, must've been through the foundation rather than the club directly.

I have no problem with the Ladies Team being unhappy with Goodwillie return. I admire their stance as I do with anyone that makes a moral stand on this issue (except John Mason)

Am I wrong though, to believe the team was formed whilst Goodwillie was already Clyde player? Perhaps they formed before that and I only became aware of their existence recently.

No, they were formed in 2019 I believe.

Choosing to take a stand against something you previously put up with is not a moral failing. There's a multitude of reasons that can mean people don't feel empowered enough to make a protest.

Well done to the players and staff of Clyde Ladies FC for making their feelings known. They've nothing to gain by doing so.

When did football clubs become judge and jury on people's character?

The lynch mob are the same people who go on and on about mental health. What if the end result was that he killed himself because of the pile on? Bunch of fucking hypocrites.

People have Green dotted this slavering pish? 

Edit to add: Someone signed up to p&b with the intent of posting this slavering pish?

Another rape apologist appears. 

To answer your question, nope, I wouldn't give a single solitary f**k if an unrepentant rapist topped himself. 

You can f**k off now.
