    Jack Hamilton has kept us in the last 2 games with good saves, could have very easily been 2 defeats on the 90 mins of play in both games. The 4 points out of 6 in the last 2 has sugar coated it a bit. Need another couple (at least) of players in before East End Park and a good performance/win v ICT

    I never said penalties are a lottery.

    Good interview, he wears his heart on his sleeve, whatever that means, like the guy.

    Penalties are not a lottery. Players have to beat the goalie...its a skill. Tossing a coin is a lottery.

    Well we played four games prior to this Cup. Seems normal to me.

    Workmate of mine who's a Dab said McDaid ripped them every game last year. Hope he continues.

    7 points from 9, clean sheets, 16/17 year olds getting first team experience. A far more positive start to the season than any in recent times. The board know we need to sign players and they are working on it. McPake knows we need to score goals, he's working on signing a striker. Just like the team playing the ball forward, it's slower than we would like and we're getting impatient. Reading the comments on here it looks like McDaid is an early contender for the Kevin Holt Trophy this year

    Gordon, in a PM reply, Tommy told me they had visited Raith in the early DeeTV days, as their service was considered one of the best of the 'less wealthy' clubs. I know a few of the media guys, all lifelong Dees & dedicated, and want to provide a good service. To me it's lack of funding from the Club that's the root of any issues like we've been experiencing. Tommy's comments about the spare camera a good example....it's faulty, clearly, why not upgrade it? I don't think we should all 'desert' it, but I think we should tell the club, and not via forums, but directly, that we want...

    It's definitely being dressed up because the league need to attract sponsors. It's no coincidence that clubs don't play many preseason games now. The league have also banned trialists from playing in the competition because they know that that is what the clubs will do due to the lack of friendlies and that sponsors and TV wouldn't pay to see teams of trialists and kids as in preseason friendlies.
  15. It's been 'doomed' since the winners no longer got a place in Europe. One rung above the Choccy Bicky Cup.... I'd guess the sections are largely loss-makers for most clubs. Might turn that around & add some local fan interest & spice if they genuinely regionalised it.... Dundee + United + Angus clubs Aberdeen + ICT + County + NE clubs Hearts + Hibs + the Lothian dross Killie + Ayr + QoS + some juniors etc

    It was nailed-on that McInally was going to play for a 0-0 or 1-0. He knew he was on to a winner by aggressively closing down the tentative play of our new team and frustrating the crowd. I don't think today tells us much about our team. Like you say the rules dictated Peterhead's gameplan and a painful afternoon was almost inevitable if they stayed alert and didn't gift us a soft early goal.

    Peterhead seemed to do a fair bit of attacking today...we should have lost that game...I can think off the top of my head 4 great chances they had.....the problem was we were far far far too slow getting the ball back to front.

    The bonus point doesn't really encourage the smaller teams to come out and attack. That's their prerogative though, they've got to play in a way that'll give them the best chance of gaining points, I just think the lottery of penalties encourages some teams to sit in and play for the draw.
  19. I agree. I think GS will be more than busy enough getting this project off the ground...and I'd imagine he'll also be asked to get involved in the setup of the Campy training area, assuming it happens. Hope it all works out, both the football side & the family side.

    McInally is a good manager and his gameplan was sound. He knew his team could frustrate Dundee and get to penalties or possibly even nick a winner. It was an almost perfect day for McInally even if his team's chances of progress diminished with that bonus point going to the Dee.

    There was loud booing and shouting when Cunningham played the ball back to one of our defenders late on in the game. A lot of punters didn't know who all the players were and probably didn't realise that they were berating a 17yr old kid. There was as of shouting at McPake (I know ) from the main stand too.

    Dundee V Peterhead Sat 20th July 2019

    we were far too slow today and knocking the ball about at the back at this level is just not acceptable....teams will just sit back like today and let us knock the ball about knowing sooner rather than later we will misplace a pass and give them easy possession.

    Late on in the game I thought that our superior fitness would show but Peterhead were running on adrenaline and were playing like a full-time team. At one point around the 80 minute mark I remember them having 4 players harassing one of our defenders (Kerr or Forster) and stopping them from playing an easy ball out. You really are on a hiding to nothing in these types of games.
  25. That’s the lad Rev. If there’s one thing I could wish for this season it would be for our players to mirror his enthusiasm for the job.

    If players haven't played much together there is going to be a lack of understanding and there is going to be hesitancy. That means a committed but limited team like Peterhead can turn the game into a horrible slugfest by simply closing down space. We're going to have to improve quickly as a unit if we're unable to acquire a quality playmaker.
