Would have kept big Matty Eldson, been pretty solid bar a mistake here or there... 

You’d think he’s probably away because it’s quite difficult logistically for him to travel up

Just hope we can bring in a massive increase in quality. 

Thought Elsdon was pish personally. Came in and done a job at the start when Balatoni and Rumsby were having shockers together but over time has been poor aswell IMO

I wouldn’t be so harsh on the players leaving, everyone of them gave their all. L1 may have been a step to far for many but their efforts was never brought in to question.

Rob Jones did not give his all at any time during his time at Clyde. Not even close. I have never seen a lazier player in my 32 years of watching football anywhere in the world.

I think that’s a pretty fair assessment plus I think Danny had lost confidence in him as the season went on.

Jones is the 1 there I am really happy to never see again. Rest of them had their fair share of contributions but overall pish. Balatoni has to be one of our top goalscorers this season no?

With Love, Nicoll and Docherty all leaving hopefully we can put to bed this nonsense of having people around because they're good in the changing room (albeit Docherty put in some relatively decent performances once he got his fitness sorted).

Still a lot of work to be done, and a couple still in the squad who are clearly not good enough, but tonight is a decent start.

Diamond should be following them, we’re left with players who are no where near L1 level , taken a wage because they were given 2 year contracts

If you’re pish but at least try you can give a bit of credit, but Jones was pish and didn’t bother his arse. 

Pish is a compliment

It's unbelievable that we're going into our fourth season in League One and have had such a slap-dash approach to squad-building that we're going to shed at least fifteen players, with three of the four already contracted for next year also not good enough. There'll have to be some amount of groundwork already in place for us to avoid anything but a repeat of this season.

Disappointed that we've stuck with Rumsby, sorry to upset the short sighted in Exec club and the Castlemilk branch, but he loses to many battles, for me.  

I hope Jim Diamond and PJ have their Excel bang up to date and don't insult us with the same level of dross they generated a year ago.

Given the type of team that we became, Docherty and Page both did a job particularly over the winter period. Not that there's much in it but I'd say Page was probably our best centre half this season (whilst still being too slow) but he also missed far too many games. 

Jones was signed as a target man and then claimed he wasn't one. Up there with Chris Johnston as the laziest player in many a year. Let's not let the management team off the hook for signing him though. Every single supporter knew he was hopeless and it petrifies me ahead of this summer that we signed him having watched him stink the place out at Broadwood for Dumbarton/Stranraer.

I don't think any player in my time watching Clyde can have as many important one-off goals as Ally Love, even going back to his first up at Montrose in the game which kickstarted DL's tenure. However, for an attacking player he hasn't ever been good enough at L1 level. All in though, you can't argue that he isn't a name now etched permanently in the club's history so fair play, he's ahead of most in that regard.

For the others, I really enjoyed Mortimer scoring against Airdrie and I appreciate Tade putting Jones to shame by trying hard despite his body being completely finished.

Loses too many battles? Look at the setup for the falkirk equaliser for example.

The first two signing will be absolutely pivotal and the pressure is now on Danny Lennon and the “recruitment” team to sign some league quality players. There will be an uproar within the support if these players are anything like what we had last year and quite righty so. Hopefully now is the point where we can actually build a capable team. If the players that were not mentioned in that update sign on again we will have a decent enough foundation to build around. We can only hope Danny can make it right.

Lots of well meant but unreal expectations here…..low income = low budget. DL doing the job with one arm tied round his back, and fair play to him for wishing to try for another 2 years. We’re getting squeezed out in this division  in terms of who we can attract and who we can pay. Delighted we stayed up which was thanks to a number of draws but any decent player will have been snapped up already.
