Default car wont start randomly....

I have a 96 Accord EX 5spd...and sumtimes the damn car wont start. I'll press the clutch in and turn the key, and i can hear the fuel pump relay click, but the car doesnt start. Sometimes the car will start randomly, but most of the time i have to get it pushed start. I thought it was the main relay, but it doesnt seem to be weather related, it'll start (randomly)when it hot or cold. I have no CEL on or anything, so idk wat it could be. Any ideas?? Oh yea, i thought my clutch safety switch was goin bad, but when i try to turn it on w/o the clutch pressed, i dont hear the fuel pump relay click, so i know the clutch switch is doin its job.
