Clyde FC; Season 2022-23


Recommended Posts

Goodwillie led by example by way of being the best player by a country mile but Thicot seems a proper leader in what you look for from your captain.

Big fan of centre half’s being the captain.

For me, centre half or centre mid is the perfect position for a captain. I think that's more of a product of the qualities that tend to come along with players that play in those positions, but it's normally good for them to be closer to the ref.

No just comparing Thicot to previous captain (which I now realise was actually Ally Love :lol:

I wonder if this will finally be the season we go for names on the reverse of the jerseys. With the transition into full squad numbers over the course of the season I've noticed that the majority of teams we play go for named jerseys. It certainly adds an extra level of professionalism to the product on the park.

Cuddihy is feked and he will be on the dog and bone to mr Lennon begging to come back

Doubt he’ll be begging. We were right to make him an offer, if he’s getting the chance of a championship club he is right to explore that option. If he comes back there’s nothing to hold against him.

Maybe a bit of loyalty would go a long way.We need to do what’s right for Clyde not players trying to feather their nest at so called bigger clubs and when it falls apart to crawl back with his tail between his legs. We shouldn’t hope players that have been made offers come back because they couldn’t do better elsewhere we shouldn’t put up with that.Let’s put it to a vote who agrees or disagrees if we should bring back cuddihy and Livingstone.

I think Cuddihy has already shown loyalty to the club, been here 5 years now. IIRC has always been one of the first to commit when offered new deal, think he deserves this opportunity to explore his options. Livingstone on the other hand apparently been very disrespectful to club and Danny this close season

I'm struggling to care as much as some about these (former) players.

Cuddihy has been a good player for us but I'm not going to worry too much if he signs elsewhere. If we were a good, top half League 1 side (which we're not, clearly) I'd only want Cuddihy as a benchwarmer anyway. He's not a good enough defender to be a right back. Doesn't control games or impose himself enough at centre-mid, despite looking fantastic in maybe one out of every 8-10 games. And he's not creative enough to be a winger.

The fact that we were so one-paced (maybe that should be zero-paced) in recent seasons made Cuddihy seem more important than he should have been.

Livingstone isn't good enough to play at leftback or left wing. He's another who, just because he could run a bit, seemed better than he was, especially when Cunningham & Cuddihy were both out. He also became more arrogant and selfish with the ball as the season wore on. He's already failed once when he went to Cove and we should only resign him if we need someone to tweet "+3" after each win.

Hopefully we actually announce some more signings this weekend so we can have something else to talk about.

I rarely, if ever, comment on P&B because, as a relative of Adam Livingstone, I don’t think it’s right to do so. However, there have been a couple of allegations against him that are not just untrue, but so far off the mark that they can’t be left unchallenged. 
I’m not talking about comments on his playing ability - football is all about opinions and everyone is entitled to their own - and mine is obviously biased, so it is what it is.

There have, though, been some claims about his attitude off the pitch and towards Danny and the club. This is where we’re in the realm of facts and I’m too concerned about things being put out there that just aren’t true, to stay silent. 
I don’t know where the alleged information is coming from, but the facts are that Adam was a popular member of the squad last season (the whole squad were very close) and he got on particularly well with Danny. He is very fond of Danny and the club, and he and Danny remain on very good terms - and he has always been respectful towards him and always will be. Wherever he is next season, whether at Clyde or anywhere else, he won’t change his opinion towards Danny or his respect for him. 
Say what you will about him as a player (when you become a professional, you accept that you put yourself out there for comment and opinion - that’s football and the first thing you have to grow is a thick skin) but he gave his all last season, including playing through injury for part of it, and to say his attitude towards, and relationship with, Danny, the other players and the club as a whole wasn’t good is a downright falsehood. 
I know some may think I shouldn’t have posted this and some may even ridicule it, but them’s the breaks. I thought it was more important to get the facts out there.
