Agree with the noun but definitely NOT the adjective in respect of Bazza as referred to here.

Sorry I meant Sir Alex, absolutely no way I would refer to Barry  in any way shape or form as successful manager. Apologies for confusion

If Clyde were to part company with Lennon (which seems highly unlikely given his contract) who would you realistically go for? Would their be anyone interested in taking the Clyde job on?

Honestly, it's a really tough shout as to who I'd go for personally. If Lennon goes, you don't know who might apply, so pulling names out my arse at this point seems moot. In terms of a profile though, I'd like someone younger and ambitious, with connections. I would have taken John Rankin before he went in at Hamilton, for example. Basically a Kevin Thompson-type at that sweet spot in their career where they want to leave a relatively cushty, secure academy role to attempt to revitalise a team full of League One jobbers and no marks.

.  

In terms of 'would we be able to get someone' - of course. People want jobs and Clyde has the potential to be a reasonably attractive proposition. We're in a better position now in terms of league standings than we were when Danny and Moorey came in. The danger is potting those two and ending up with a Peter Grant.

1 too many Grant's around the squad at present I think.

Similar set up to Broadwood - you’ll be given a section in the Main Stand.

I'd be amazed if you're not just in the main stand, the side closest to the stand behind the goal. That is where Peterhead, Kelty and Alloa have been.

I'd imagine you'll also have access to the main bar pre-match.

Perfect cheers.We have a bus running and I'd imagine the supporters club has a bus going too.We tour about the Hamilton pubs before heading to the game.

Only name I can think of that would be realistic would be Allan Johnson, Queens fans might tell you a bit more about him. Or probably slate him. But he's managed at a decent level and has good experience, that's if you want to go down the experienced route.

John Rankin would of probably been an ideal young manager appointment if he's not at Hamilton. Feel if you were to get rid of Lennon it would be vital that you got the right person in, especially with league 2 and the Lowland league getting more competitive.

So Edinburgh are sitting top of the league…granted it’s early in the season. Similar budget maybe to us ? Just promoted ? What are they doing differently ? Management better ? Scouting better ? I think that they are similar to Clyde in a lot of ways yet the table shows a huge difference.

Personally I think that it’s the management.

Recruitment… simple as that.

Manager who knows what he is doing and who is maximising resources.

Danny’s thoughts about tomorrow…😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
"Success comes when we do ordinary things extraordinarily well. Getting the basics right by taking care to ensure we win our tackles, complete our passes and are decisive in both boxes propels performances and results in the right direction

It makes you wonder why he continues to sign players that are unable to do the ordinary things even at a basic level.

Is there even a point to getting Danny's comments before or after a match? They're meaningless. White noise.

How about getting our team to show it on the pitch.

Sometimes he just says a lot without saying anything at all….
