probs not likely but if Splaine, Livingstone and Cuddihy were to sign on it would make that team look a lot better. Crying out for some signings. Would even take a shite rumour at this point.

Someone get Ray Grant on the phone to his brother

If they have been removed from the website I’m pretty sure the party is over for the 3 stooges. I hope the club don’t back track as I’m sure they  have been made offers and they are holding out for better options. It is a concern where we are at the moment but I hope we have good honest players who can be coached to become better and play as a team. Our first preseason friendly will tell a story.

This next week has a feel of that fateful day where we made about six dud signings in about three hours, the panic is growing. We currently have two CBs and one of those is a guy not deemed good enough to play for Gretna last season.

That inaccurate he was injured for 3 months at Gretna  and I’m sure there is a reason why he’s still on the website

I know some squads will need more additions than others but I was surprised to see we've made the 2nd most signings in Scotland this summer to date. Really need to be adding established players now though, and ideally some height!

Is there a non-digital season pass this year?

Yeah they mentioned this at the fans meeting a few weeks back I think, if you email the club I’m sure they can sort you out with something.

If we are waiting until bounce games to assess players then they are likely not good enough imo. We handed Paul Kennedy a 2 year deal after a good performance in a friendly last season FFS.

There are plenty of guys who would walk into our team that have gone to teams further down the pyramid.

Really worrying that more guys we don’t need a trial match to evaluate aren’t being signed up.

Despite being a regular, I think this will be the first time I’ve bought a season ticket in about 13 years. It’s difficult to get excited about the team as we have barely any players currently, but I’ve a positive feeling about the future. Hopefully the right decisions are made regarding any new stadium and we take on board the copious amount of mistakes we’ve made before and not make them again.

It is Clyde we are talking about, though. Roll on Hibs away.

Finding it hard to be positive given the slow recruitment, which I don’t think is a good indication of where we are heading.
Hopefully I’m wrong but it’s going to be a hugely competitive league which may be too much for us this year?


Still, purchased my season ticket this morning as usual in recent times due to blind loyalty. Also makes me feel less guilty if I end up picking and choosing my  games this year.

As others have said it isn’t looking optimistic where we currently are

The big issue is that those already signed dont inspire me with any confidence.

We already have 14 signed up which means likely just another 6 (maybe 8 ) to be signed 

Unless they are all going to be world beaters we are shaping up a squad that looks pretty poor

Suppose the only good thing is that others in our league also seem to have gone backwards in their squad quality eg Airdrie 

Again calls in to question the purpose of dumb and dumber in the recruitment team.   Their purpose is to identify a few hidden gems.  Now they may have in Rodden as don’t know anything him but have seen all the others play and none were anything special.  But then again that might just be an indication of where we are and the type of players we can realistically attract

Reality is we were spoiled over the last few years with DGW up front and won’t ever have that quality of player again for the length of time we did.

Think this will be a season to far.

Seems like it will be another few weeks then before we hear any signing news which is a bit depressing. Obviously gives the impression that the players we are bringing in to look at aren’t established which is worrying.

Reminder that for the payment option over 10 months your season ticket must be purchased by next weekend. 
 

Regarding recruitment I would have liked to see a few more bodies added by this stage but not overly concerned. We will have a better squad than last season & at least we have identified the type of player we want. Last season we didn’t have any sort of focus & were signing players without thinking how they would fit in or how we would play. 
 

Can’t wait for the season to kick off. Hopefully the supporters can rally behind the club in a difficult season off the park as we look to build for the future.

I’ve got to say I’m not seeing the confidence of others about our position. The sort of quality L1 players we need aren’t gonna be playing as trialists and it isn’t as if we’re sitting with a good starting XI currently, we need starters in key positions.
