Clyde FC; Season 2022-23


Recommended Posts

Not fussed about not signing Bryson. As Craig Telfer said, players dropping down to the seaside leagues normally means they’ll be terrible or incredible, no in between, and we can’t afford such an expensive gamble - no matter how much I love the boy.

I’m more concerned about Stenny signing the striker Sewell from Largs. Incredible goalscoring record and having seen him play a few times last season, he’s the type of player we really need - a striker that’s a complete arsehole. Even if that translates to 15 league goals it’s worth a punt. In the last 5 seasons there are only 5 players to have hit 20 goals in League 1, so the chances of us finding that are slim.

There would be legitimate cause for concern right now if either or both of Peterhead and Edinburgh City had undertaken considerable and good-quality recruitment. That's not the case, so all bed-wetting fatalism should be shelved until it is.

I’d be hoping we’d be aiming a bit higher than someone from Largs thistle.

He may well do a job at stenny but we’ve signed many a player from the juniors, better teams than Largs at that, who’ve turned out to be utter shite.

Apparently Stenny paid a 5 figure fee to sign him. Plus are rumoured to have offered silly money to Bryson.

Not sure whether they have a sugar daddy or not  but we simply can't compete with that.

Why? We can’t afford to aim higher.

We’ve signed players from the Championship that turned out to be utter shite too, so that’s a weird comment.

These points are entirely fair aye.

The fact players from the championship have been shite doesn’t take away from the fact some players from the juniors have been shite, both statements can be true.

…but you were using your comment to make a point about not signing players from the juniors. So you’re saying we shouldn’t sign anyone, from any level? Bizarre stuff. 

Put it this way - I’d rather take a punt on a laddie that’s scored 40 goals last season at a good level in the juniors than sign someone like Rob Jones or Ally Roy who might have played senior football, but haven’t got 40 goals between them across their entire career.
