Clyde FC; Season 2022-23


Recommended Posts

Honestly have no idea how Clyde make decisions despite throwing money away as an owner in the hope of getting some information.

In the last few months we had an AGM to vote in the Board, followed by some updates on working parties who were looking into improving Broadwood and/or potential relocations.   Fast forward a few weeks and we've had some sponsor force the Board into signing a player they didn't want to sign,  then 5(?) new people added to the Board without any mechanism for the owners to do anything about it (including one returning board member who previously tried to kill the club by changing its name and moving us to a stadium that didn't yet exist), immediately followed by announcing a move to fucking Hamilton (christ, i'd have rather the cliftonhill april fools joke was true).   I'm not saying we should stay at Broadwood but I literally have no idea how the fan-owned club works or how the owners actually influence things in any way.

i'm quite sad to see Clyde leave Broadwood as well, most of my early football memories were from when Airdrie shared there, I would have tthought sharing with us at Broomfield would have made more sense as its just down the road, or are most Clyde fans Glasgow based?

I've a bad feeling about this. I hope the decision to leave early isn't part of any stupid bid to re-sign Goodwillie, but even if it isn't, the uncertainty for the next few years is a worry.

I think a new stadium in Glasgow could be successful... but no idea where we would find the money to build one and no council is ever going to help us out ever again.

Clyde, crying, pissing their pants and spewing in the street as the rain batters off the pavement, “We were leavin’ anyway! Yer pub’s shite!” 
 

Evicted for dug racing and now evicted for idolising rapists. A new low.

Fair enough..however, I still believe that trying to sustain a Championship budget with junior attendances like Queens Park will be interesting to watch.

In the news this week proposals to ban greyhound racing in Scotland.
Clyde then announce their intention to leave Broadwood

Coincidence? emoji6.png

That stadium must be haunted 

Clicky

Fifteen greyhounds died and 197 injuries to animals were recorded at Shawfield Stadium between 2017 and 2020, according to new figures.

I hardly think the Council have ever helped us!

Aye Clyde making out it’s their choice when they were told in February they would be getting kicked out is a strange one.

 

Instead of hanging around they have taken the bull by the horns and said…f**k this…we’re not waiting on someone else to decide…NLC have been teeing this up for a while and the DGW situation was a great excuse to move things quickly.

It is the club's choice to move a year before we needed to. Not sure if they think they're better to get closer to Glasgow, it's a case of cutting our noses off to spite our face or the worrying prospect of wanting to bring back DGW.

Unbelievable insight from a deluded Falkirk fan

If you hadn’t resigned a rapist you’d have been at Broadwood well past next season.

Ultimately, a three to five year lease at Hamilton is a more secure, short-term, option than the club currently had from NLC. Whilst the DGW situation sped the process up, there has been several occasions over the past twenty years where we’ve heard that Clyde are planning to leave or NLC were planning to chuck us out. The change has been required for quite some time.
