The sale of Jim Hamilton to Hearts for £200,000 highlighted the two other major issues Dundee faced at the time. Namely a budget that barely seemed able to cover the heating bill, never mind a promotion push and the complete disinterest of the club’s latest white knight turned villain, Canadian ‘business man’ and club owner Ron Dixon.
James McAlister was at Dens for three seasons and was considered a fan favourite.
The midfielder was part of the championship winning side in 2014 and it was his goals which helped the Dee on the road to the title. James was also involved in the 'Bitegate' storm when Nadir Ciftci bit McAlister's leg during a Dundee Derby.
Obviously we can't see into the future but I wonder if the season will be delayed.
I think it could be October before we can get to Dens again. Just a guess.
With it looking likely they'll be joining us I wonder if they have reductions in player contracts in the event of relegation.
You'd have thought so but given the mess Budge and levein have made and the panicked statements from Budge there must be a doubt there.
Do they offer the high earners a free transfer? Will the players accept one?
They've still got about 25 players contracted for next season and many of these will be on big contracts. Boyce, Washington, Naismith, Berra, walker etc.
A lot of ifs and buts but if they can keep most of their squad and keep them fit then they'll be very hard to beat. Boyce and Naismith are top players in particular.
A season yet to be finished or a season that never was? Promotion through reconstruction? Play-off bound? Or denied a crack at the top flight through our own fault or circumstances? Who knows? Either way now seems as good a time as ever to have a wee look back over what has been a (part) season that’s often promised much without ever really delivering.
