Clyde FC; Season 2022-23


Recommended Posts

No real feelings about the signing, other than a bit strange given we have a few other obvious and pressing problems to deal with on the park.

Still.. good luck to the boy and never know, might be next Philipe Mental?

Only reason this game has any relivance to me is that it’s in the middle of another horrendous run and will either mark it continuing or maybe ending it.. I checked out of this cup the day the B teams were added.. was the thin edge of the wedge and was obviously “an in “for what is going on in Lowland league now.

Therefore I for one won’t be there

Had to have a slight chuckle at the article about Bradley-Hurst joining up with a Sri Lankan training camp, and our goalie coach praising him highly, only for the next article to be us announcing a new goalie. :lol: Good luck to Joshua though, that’ll be a good experience for him. He must live near my work as I quite often see him out training on the local pitches so he certainly does seem to put the work in.

I’m actually quite looking forward to Saturday. Absolutely no idea how we’ll get on but it’s a bit of a novelty and a welcome break from the league after our recent run. An opportunity to try and tweak a few things without too much of an expectation of a result.

Once again it'll be another season I give this Cup a miss regardless how far we go or who we play.
I haven't been since B teams were introduced and went be back till they are gone...which won't happen as the SPFL/SFA are shit feart of upsetting 2 clubs.

A once fantastic tournament for the lower leagues thst got real decent sponsors and engaged lower league teams to take it seriously is now no more than a piss take friendly cup now

f**k the SFA

I haven't looked deeper into it but the only member of their squad I've heard of from a quick look on wiki is Dion Donohue who had a few years in the English lower leagues at Portsmouth and Swindon.

Still expecting us to lose on Saturday right enough :lol: 

Even though I’ve played football manager for the best part of 20 years I’ve still not heard of anyone in their team.

Obviously that’ll come back to haunt me on Saturday!

Could have just agreed to play 45 mins and not bothered with that. We've found Lyon in space time and time again and he's wasted it every time.

I sense we have overestimated Caernarfon's ability.

A welcome win even if it was just the diddy cup. Caernarfon looked a similar level to us and there wasn’t much in the game at all. I’m not surprised it took a fluke to win the game as there were so few chances but it was nice to keep a clean sheet. That back four would probably be what I’d go with in the next game and Mullen had a decent debut in goals (not that he was worked particularly hard). He was very confident at dealing with cross balls which was a welcome change.

Outfield, all worked hard but things just wouldn’t come off for Roberts, Cameron or Lyon, although none of them hid. Cunningham wasn’t at his best either and I was surprised Allan wasn’t utilised today. Lyon in particular is just infuriating, has he ever found a Clyde player with a cross? If he could cross there’d be a semi-decent player there. I thought Raymond Grant was our best player and I’m pleased he’s re-opened his account with us. Peter Grant, for all the stick he’s gotten recently, was fine. I continue to be quite impressed by Kennedy at left back at the drop off there when he went off was noticeable.

Overall, nice to stop the rot and keep a clean sheet. I won’t make the Falkirk game but it’s sightly less terrifying than it might have been. Well done, Clyde.

P.S. On the off chance that any Caernarfon Town fans are reading this, their support was plentiful and noisy. Seemed a good day out for them despite the score.

Awful game between probably the two most evenly matched sides in soccer history, literally nothing happened bar the goal. You have to feel sorry for Lyon; Grant does one mis-hit cross and nets the winner, he does ten and gets pelters.

No surprise that we looked a better side playing a back four even against a team that really didn't threaten (not that we did either). McLean and Grant far more comfortable. After seeing Louis Longstaff last season and Fidel O'Rourke today, I'm disappointed I haven't got a game for the Liverpool youth teams yet.

Ray Grant and the away number 6 were the best players on the pitch. It was positive to get a much better performance out of Roberts and Kennedy is clearly our first choice left back. The Caernarfon left back was so bad he'll end up signing for us at some point.

If we could announce our preseason trip to Caernarfon now that would allow for adequate planning time.
