Yes, to bleed this system, you have to remove the slave cylinder.. and hold it at a 45 degree angle, with the bleeder open, then someone will push the pedal, and when they get it to the bottom, close the bleeder.. and they can then release the clutch pedal.. wait a couple seconds, and then open the bleeder and do it again.. etc, do that about 3-4 times is usually good enough.

If you still can't get good pedal, lookk into a master cylinder problem, unless it is obvious that the slave cylinder is leaking.
