Clyde FC; Season 2022-23


Recommended Posts

Got to apologise to Danny for suggesting earlier in the season that he should go. I seriously did not expect us to stay up this time,. Serious work required now from everyone to make sure we make a go of it next season.

I don’t really think it’s wild to suggest that Danny should have went. For many reasons (some admittedly not football related) this has been a grim season for Clyde. The recruitment has been absolutely mental and some of the tactics equally so. Don’t get me wrong though, I like Danny and Allan and I’m happy that they’ve kept us up.

I also don’t think it’s wild to suggest that this summer is his most important since taking over. Finally having to build a squad without Goodwillie in what will surely be the strongest League 1 group in some time. The potential for disaster is huge and we will not be able to get away with signing Lowland League joeys.

IMO these next 2 games are still VERY important. Yes we have secured league 1 football next season. But 6th 7th 8th spots are all to play for. Finishing 6th compared to 8th may just be the financial boost we need to avoid having another Lowland league quality team next season.

Or 5th 😉

Whilst would be better to finish higher up I don't think the prize money is hugely improved per higher placing. Can't find this seasons, but previous there was 2.5k difference per place in the league. Then again beggars can't be choosers and every little helps.

Guess it would help cover the wage contribution we are sending RR for Goodie.

Be good to know how much that is. Someone asked on the Clyde Owner's

”Q& A”.
The answer was apparently subject to a non disclosure confidentiality clause so no figure was forthcoming.

Which implies we are paying something which also suggests it’s RR who were unwilling to agree to tear up loan agreement.

It’s well known that Clyde are paying part of his wages.

Why on earth would RR tear up the loan agreement? Clyde were the ones stupid enough to agree to take him back on a deal where a three way agreement was required to end the loan. Tearing up the loan would mean they’re paying the full whack again.

Just a big reminder that Clyde FC - perhaps the stupidest club in the country.

At last we agree

Realistically we can’t get a full new squad for next year so I imagine we’ll keep 7/8 players from this season. Who would people want to keep?

I reckon a case could be made for Cunningham, Cuddihy, Livingston, Docherty, McAlistar, Splaine and if possible Jamieson. 
 

Parry already signed up for next season. Not sure if anyone else is?

Paul Kennedy & Kieran McGrath were both given 2 year deals in the summer. So they’ll be here for next season with parry.

Hopefully we can offload Kennedy and McGrath both of them are honking.

I don’t want to fully engage in a keep/punt conversation whilst we still have a couple of games left but we absolutely have to be more proactive in securing targets compared to last summer. Whilst I don’t doubt that many of the guys we brought in were 3rd or 4th (sometimes possibly lower) choice, if we hear similar stories this year we’ll remain in trouble.

We should be flinging everything at keeping Splaine, Cuddihy and Cunningham and trying to move Heaven and Earth to get McAllister and Jamieson back. There are a couple of others that I wouldn’t mind staying either. I’d also give Monday Samuel the next couple of games so that I can try and work out if he’s any good or not.

As far as I know, the only players signed up for next season are Parry, McCormack, Kennedy and McGrath. With any luck, the latter three will leave. We should try and keep Livingstone, Cuddihy and Splaine and see if McAllister and Jamieson will return.

Totally agree with this. Lennon is famously late with securing transfers (that year at Alloa where he went on holiday during a crucial week in the window sticks out) but we absolutely cannot be lazy this summer. We need to strike fast and get good options signed up early as opposed to bottom feeding.

Cuddihy. Mcallister. Splaine and Livingstone would be my priority with of course a goalscorer which arent exactly in abudance looking thro the leagues...

Safe to say If were the 2nd lowest scorers again next season were probably not avoiding bottom 2 with Kelty coming up replacing a poor East Fife...

Saturdays confirmation of our league status was a massive relief and who ever departs in the Summer will go with my best wishes as they all played an important part

Hate to be the bearer of negative sentiments here, but according but we are probably one of the worst off financially in Scottish football based on depleted revenues, so I would suggest that we should appreciate where we are, and hope that DL continues to work his magic in keeping us 8th or above every season. Lack of success on the pitch, less fans, less money, then smaller budgets, lack of success, even less fans….AND looking for alternatives to Broadwood, which will kill us anyway if we stay. Are we hoping that a bank would lend us money based on what we own, which is very little…so I think the question isn’t about who we can keep, it’s about those who wish to stay with the possibility of earning more elsewhere…

The doom laden predictions for our budget for beyond next season suggests that this might be the last chance we have to put together a halfway competitive squad for this level so hopefully we can make a good fist of it.

There are plenty of players capable of scoring goals at this level available on a free transfer at the end of the season. We have a recruitment team, and they should be moving heaven and earth at this point to get one of those lads tied up right now.

For example, Russell McLean is out of contract and a (relatively) local boy, given that he's from Falkirk. Lewis Jamieson is out of contract in the summer and he's potentially young enough that a brief but successful drop into part time football could allow him to propel himself back into the championship. Gary Oliver and Robbie Muirhead at Morton are free in the summer and are surely coming to the end of their full time tenures. Louis Longridge and Bob McHugh from QP.

This is literally just me taking a quick look at Transfermarkt for strikers who's contracts are expiring whilst I take a coffee break at work. A salaried recruitment team will (or rather, should) have more information/contacts to hand and be hyper aware that this is the most important position on the park and we very recently lost our only source of 10+ goals. They should be straight onto these boys and putting everything they can into signing them. It's not an easy job but I'm assuming that's the reason that Diamond etc are being paid by the club.
