Clyde FC; Season 2022-23


Recommended Posts

Whilst full back is a real area of need I’m not exactly buzzing at the signing of an 18 year old lad from killie. Wasn’t impressed at all with Devenney we had from them previously.

We already have Hendji and Rodden on the books too who don’t look up to it and obviously Danny agrees given we’ve been playing Paul Kennedy in there. So there’s money being pished away on guys that aren’t going to get a look in.

Hopefully this new lad is decent and solves a problem for us but there still has to be massive questions over recruitment.

To be fair, Ritchie-Hosler hardly played during his loan spell with us. Only had a few sub apps IIRC. Would come as absolutely no surprise if he ends up decent for Dunfermline and scoring against us.

What was Kane Richie-Hosler like?

I can’t even remember him making an appearance but he playef a total of 47 minutes in the league according to Transfermarkt. He gets filed in the apparently endless list of “useless old firm loanees”.

Was very young though, I’d imagine he’s probably improved a lot given the environment.

Whenever I see him in my mind's eye he's warming up behind the goal.
I have zero memory of him actually on the pitch.
To his credit, I usually have even less memory regarding most of our loans.

Surely the best thing to do here is go back to basics seeing as we can't get that right.
4-4-2 and play simple football. Lennon keeps picking bizzar teams and playing systems we can't play with the players we have then abandoning that once the damage is done to play utter shite

Garbage today, knew it would be as soon as I saw that line up. Besides Ray Grant, Jordan Allan and Neil Parry should be the next two names on the team sheet.

We are abysmal in the full back positions and a raw 18 year old lad from Killie isn’t going to help, early to judge but he looks no better than what we have. Rodden looked ok when he came on and could be worth giving a run in there or playing in front of Kennedy as a left midfielder.

Ross Lyon, Ewan Cameron, Kurtis Roberts, Peter grant and the keeper were all poor to dreadful.

We do have some good players but with the other personnel around them they don’t stand a chance at the moment.

The fact that per player, this team is better than last years in most areas, yet are in this position,,,again, says more about tactics and line ups than anything else. With regular defeats, comes declining confidence… fresh ideas or management required definitely.

Firstly, I think there should be an acceptance that unless something changes dramatically off the pitch, then we're always going to be scrabbling in the bottom three in this league and ultimately will go down.

That said, if we Ignore recruitment (that's not downplaying it's importance - it's unfathomable that we've put together a team with almost no physical presence middle-to-front), this is the first time since the first couple of months in the promotion season that I feel that Danny is not getting the best out of the players that he does have. 

Today in itself doesn't define our season; this Falkirk side are clearly better than the ones they've previously had. But messing about with a back three in the winnable games against the likes of Edinburgh/Alloa, resorting back to it after a reasonably positive first half against Airdrie, then this current crazy midfield tactic where we have a central midfielder on the left and a (rubbish) full-back on the right of midfield. It's something that a top team can pull off, not a part-time L1 side.

The longer Lennon stays in post from that Clydebank disaster last year, the more and more his reputation as Clyde manager is being tarnished. Gained us promotion but that was years ago. What has he done to better that or f**k sake even match that? Being in a relegation scrap every season is not worthy of remaining in a job IMO.

Last season he had the opportunity for a fresh start after all the COVID disruption, and made some woeful signings, and we scraped by. Of course budget size determines a lot of it, but so do his tactics. I still say there is a better team there compared to last season, and Danny is a thoroughly decent guy who has given us some brilliant memories. I just feel that a fresh pair of eyes should be considered if nothing changes. I got slagged off a bit here earlier suggesting that we wouldn’t surpass the nine wins we got out of 36 games last year..Presently, it looks like we’ll be luck to get 9. Which in turn affects attendances
