The same fans no doubt missed the fact that post-pandemic Mitchell was making mistakes all over the place.

It's mental, but fans always seem to need a scapegoat and he's ours for now. Mitchell was a right good 'keeper and there's no denying that, but he wasn't even on Alan Martin's level. Unless my memory is failing me, I can't think of many Parry clangers at all - when it comes to Mitchell, I remember a mid-pandemic game against Airdrie in which he let in a goal direct from a corner then made a mess of another one to gift an early two-goal lead. What makes it all the more bizarre is we've all seen several times how much of a ringer Bradley-Hurst is.

Haud the bus - sections of your fans don't like Parry yet liked the donkey that is Alan Martin? :o

Don’t remember Duthie being that skillful when he was at Dumbarton but had the QOTS players on strings the full game. His finishing could definitely improve but I love his eagerness to get forward on the counter every time we defended. He’s always looking for the space and happy to take the ball. Long may it last but our forward options look exciting for the year ahead. Still think we could add another in but we’ll see how the loan market goes.

Yeah I thought it was pretty clear as well tbh, fell asleep to the guy’s run and clipped him. A top save tho, it didn’t actually look the worst penalty.
It wasn't a particularly bad penalty. Parry made a really good save. Always seems to be the attacker criticised rather than a GK praised when a penalty is missed for some annoying reason.

Watched the highlight there. The QotS penalty is very soft imo. 

If by "soft" you mean a stonewaller then I'd agree.

Watched it again and it still looks soft. Doesn’t look like there’s much contact but I am watching it on an iPhone so not the biggest screen.

It was the easiest decision the ref had tbh. The angle on the highlights doesn't fully show it but it was a blatant shove. Said at the time that if we score this I'd be absolutely furious with the stupidity of the player if I was a Clyde fan/player. Counted for nothing in the end of course.

I said at the game that if that penalty goes in there's a good chance we go on to lose never mind only take a point. For some reason Neil Parry has taken a fair bit of stick since joining us so was delighted to see him make that save and have as big a contribution to win as the outfield players. 

It's a superb start to the season but only a start. Peterhead have had a dismal start and although every game presents a different challenge, you'd be disappointed if we don't have 6 points from 6 by Saturday evening. Danny will have some job picking the team for this after such a good impact from the subs at QoS.

The game on Saturday is an ultimate Clyde trap game. All the optimism from the weekend against a team who have had a difficult start to the season, in our first home league game at Hamilton. Also McInally has always had Lennon’s number in their clashes together. I’m hopeful that the experience in the squad can keep the feet on the ground and realise we need the same level of performance - outside of the first twenty seconds of course!

I'm also not convinced about our merits as a side looking to break a defensive team down. Counter attacking we will be fine.

I would be absolutely delighted having a team on the front foot trying to break down the oppositions back line after the past 2 seasons watching teams piss all over the top of us. 90% of last season we were on the back foot trying to hang on in games.

How we do against a defensive team does remain to be seen.

In saying that, we scored two goals on Saturday from set pieces.

Couldn't agree more.  My hope, however, is that the massive churn in our squad has exercised the fear that oozed out of us whenever we met p heid, particularly at Broadwood.

I agree with the wait till Saturday attitude, while I’m absolutely thrilled and delighted with our first league game, I am hoping it’s not a mirror image of our first game last year when we meekly handed Dumbarton an easy win. Hopefully QOS weren’t as bad as we were that day and made us look better than we actually are.

As I say Saturday’s game against Peterhead will be an acid test as to where we are for this season. A real bread and butter game.

Clyde were good but even looking at the goals objectively, it was horrible from QoS.

Clyde were good but even looking at the goals objectively, it was horrible from QoS.

On the basis of "all goals are avoidable".

First, well worked corner, but nobody goes with McDonald & not sure about the keeper's effort to get to it

Second, absolutely nobody tracked Cunningham's run when it was clear he'd peeled off to the back stick

Third, should have been dealt with by two QOS players in the RB position, row Z if necessary

Fourth, the lad already showed what he was going to do before the free kick was taken then delayed.   When the free kick was taken he did just that

 

Not that I'm complaining right enough, but wouldn't have been pleased if the other way round.
