Clyde FC; Season 2022-23


Recommended Posts

Not an inspiring result but I wouldn’t look too much into todays result. The majority of the squad is new and have only played a handful of games together. Today was away against a far superior team with a new manager to impress. Only positive is we didn’t concede in the second half. 
 

The game on Wednesday will be a better game To judge the squad and the season ahead.

I wasn’t there but my only criticism would be (from the starting line up on Twitter) it looked like we could be playing a 4-3-3, was that the case?

442 to start, changed to 451 during first half. 

Still a bit of potential there in comparison with last year's squad but we desperately need a bit of physical presence up front and in the centre of midfield. For example, Goodwillie and Splaine (not saying those two specifically).

Probably an unfair match to judge us on but I'm just glad Hibs tailed off in the 2nd half or that could've been really, really embarrassing.

I actually thought we started the game okay then we just completely lost it in the rest of the first half once the scoring was opened. One of Doidges in particular where he completely miskicked the ball and still reacted first to poke it in was disappointing. 

Watching R.Grant and Gomis end the game as the centre half pairing was quite something!

These cup games are pretty much pre-season friendlies so not going to read to much into it but in saying that there really wasn't any positives to take away from the match.

Hibs waltzed through our midfield and defence at will and some of the goals we lost were very poor.

Struggling to give anyone pass marks and there is a real lack of height in the team outwith the two centre halves.

Do people really want JBH to be the number 1 in the league over Neil Parry, literally one of the best PT goalkeepers in the SPFL over the last decade and a half?

JBH only made 6 apps in total last season and looked fine. Had a decent game against Airdrie whilst still making some glaring errors.

The 0-3 Peterhead game cemented that JBH isn’t ready to be a 1st choice keeper, in my eyes. He’s made some very decent saves when he’s played but he’s also too error prone at the moment. I’m quite happy with him being backup, however.

Watched the goals, does not look good at all. Huge individual and collective mistakes on show. From keeper to supposed full backs, central defenders and what looked like an anonymous  central midfield. Chasing shadows in every single goal conceded.

Hopefully it’s a one off (not convinced) especially as those sides we think may be around us next season seemed able to compete with their “top flight” opposition at the weekend

100% agree regarding Neil Parry.  An outstanding Goalkeeper and we’re lucky to have him

I have to agree, Parry now is decent nothing more , last season I think despite several good point blank saves he was also was suspect both with a few “early” shots and not particularly dominant dealing with crosses, defence didn’t help I get that. Granted he is probably as good as we can get given out circumstances but nowhere near the Keeper Alloa had. 
However, by no means our biggest problem that is clear it has to be said.

Given Mitchell left on the final day last year, getting Parry in was as good a signing as we could’ve made in the circumstances. Still a decent league 1 keeper I think.

A group of us bumped into Neil at Belfast airport back around Easter, and his exact words were “Oh, some Clyde fans who actually like me!’.

I was a bit surprised by that at the time but it’s starting to become a little clearer now 🙄

Granted we got rattled by Hibs but his persona was a little dejected at the weekend too. We need to get right behind him this season and show him some support, make no mistake we were lucky to replace Mitchell so quickly with such quality.

Hate to think if we'd been unlucky

Agree that we were incredibly lucky that Parry becoming available lined up with Mitchell leaving. If he wasn't available, maybe Wullie Muir would have been a shout, but there certainly wasn't any other goalkeeper of similar quality available to us at the time and we wouldn't be able to sign anyone of a better standard now.

Hopefully he was joking when he said that he thinks Clyde fans don't like him because the sane ones definitely do!
