Noticed Headline suggesting this on Online Newspaper ... Can anyone enlighten me here please?

(Put this in the DFC Chat section, so move it, if it's in the wrong bit) ... TBH I'm not sure if it's true?

It’s the start of the silly season in terms of transfer rumours. I think agents across the country will be using the media to stir a bit of interest in their players by trying to force managers into making fast decisions. 

Murray is obviously proven at championship level but I think it would take a big offer from the Dabs to tempt him away from his Hibs contract. However, there could be some truth in the story but United are trying to rebuild an entire squad, I’m not sure that going for ex-players is ever the best approach in that situation.

Hopefully true, the guy isn’t good enough at Premiership level.

In that case, let's hope they get him !! (Jist bein daft again)...If they want him, & he want's to go, that's fine.

But I also think he appears to be getting "mucked aroond" (used) wi' various clubs. Personally wid keep him.

Proven striker at that level - Utd would be daft to not try and get him back.

Personally I'd let AJ go back to Shrewsbury and try and keep Murray as a squad player.

Bringing in a quality proven striker must be priority number 1 though.

The dabs don't have a pot to p*ss in, would be surprised if they could afford a pack of Murray Mints.

Complete crap to sell season tickets from a desperate club.

That's it in a nutshell.

No chance, they couldn't afford him, other clubs are in the mix and he doesn't want to go back haha Tele are at it (surprise ;) ).

I think you’re vastly over estimating the pull of Simon Murray. I can’t see any supporter of any club getting excited over signing him.

I would keep him as a squad player. Would be decent to come off the bench the last 20 mins with his energy.

We need much better than we already have though. Hopefully AJ will go back to his parent club and won't return to Dens. He's not good enough.

And I am still of the belief there is better to come of Si' Murray ... Better imo, no' to be too hasty. (We should let this play-oot)

If we go into next season relying on the likes of Murray and Moussa then we are asking for trouble.

Murray clearly isn’t good enough, he lacks the composure and intelligence to play Premiership football. Sure he tried hard, and seems like a nice guy, but that’s not enough.

Aye we`d be flirting with relegation yet again and theres only so many times you can flirt at bottom before being relegated

yeah agree with that, depends if there's enough left in the budget after the main weaknesses have been sorted. I don't think he would be cheap so maybe a luxury we can't afford, especially with the emergence of Scott and Henvey as backup although may be better to loan them out to a championship club for a season.

You mean loan them to a team such as Inverness? County? Dunfermline? Falkirk? QOS? Livi? Alloa? Morton? Ayr?.....DOWN FOR LIFE!

I think you're vastly over estimating the number of braincells in arab heads.

Some are already excited.

Easily conned.

Up to a point, I agree with you.  But, I'm a believer that if you're not good enough to be challenging for a first pick then we should be looking for better.  There are some exceptions to this but I don't think Murray is one.  The fact that Utd fans predicted how things would go with him (I know, I know) and that Hibs were willing to farm him out to us kinda confirms that Murray maybe doesn't quite cut the mustard.  He did OK, but maybe no more than that.

I'll probably get pelters for this but loaning them to the neighbours would mean they could still spend time with our team in the same way we've leant players to p/t teams but they trained with us. I know they would spend most their time slumming it but wouldn't disrupt the players off field either.

Folk complain Moussa doesn't score enough goals and he's shite. They then want Murray kept even though he's scored less and is considerably worse at football. :slaphead:

He isn't 'proven' at Championship level, United fans were happy he left. 

I genuinely can't see why folk can't see he's absolute gubbins. I'd have John Baird ahead of him.

Murray is not good enough, imo he’s loupin’ with his only asset being his energy.

I’m baffled sometimes about the comments on Moussa. He is not our problem. We are a better team when he plays, the issue is that there’s no-one playing off him. FEB isn’t sharp enough mentally or robust enough to get close enough to a target man. The only time I’ve seen him do that well is against Utd off of Haber and they are about as good as a week in the jail.

I don’t know if it happened this season but I’d like to see CW play off of Moussa, especially now that CW is more robust and is still very sharp.

I don’t think we are as far away as some have said. 4-5 players coming in and running with a smaller but better squad. 2x LB, a utility man, a winger and another striker and we are on our way imo.

The most important job is keeping a hold of Caulker and Kamara. For me, doing that is key to attracting others to Dens.

      Possibly expected. Shrewsbury interested. Possibly do DFC nae herm ... He seemed to know what it was all about.

      “Speaking to the manager he really sold the club to me. He was brilliant, he was very keen on getting me in and it’s something that I thought would be brilliant for me"
      "It’s a massive club, a massive Premiership club that has real ambition so I thought it would be a great place to come and be involved.”
      So maybe sometimes, when we are feeling gloomy. And maybe a wee tad over- critical, wi' oor nit-picking (Pit it doon to Pre-Season Blues)
      Let's think a little aboot Jack Hamilton's comment above & other positive comments that are said in a similar vein. DFC WE LOVE YOU
      I'm no' trying to be over-critical with DFC fans/posters that are the extreme end of the "opinions spectrum" ... But let's keep it in proportion.
      Too many negative posts, & I guess too many over- positive posts (See these Happy Clappers) maybe dinnae dae the Club, present players,
      potential signings, Fans, both on & off the forum, any favours. But however you feel DFC Lads & Lasses on here ... Keep  posts coming
      Nothing is perfect, & nor will it ever be ... But you dinnae have to look far to see there are many Clubs that wid like a bit o' what we have
      DUNDEE FOOTBALL CLUB ... DUNDEE CITY'S (AMBITIOUS) PREMIERSHIP CLUB ... WE ARE GOING PLACES  ... (Dinnae sell it short)

      Before anyone starts raging or has palpitations ... I am only having a bit fun
      Although, If you want to take it seriously...Do you think RC will make it work?
      What brought this to mind wis reading the extreme views o'  Forum Posters.
      (Reference, is on the assessment of posters here, on possible new signings)
      OK it's the "close season"...& wild speculation, views & assessments are fine.
      But jist imagine supplying DFC wi' "TEN EXPERTS" of here as a Joint Manager
      Project/Experiment. Wi awe that knowledge available, surely we couldnae fail

      I subscribe to DEETV for DFC full match replays, game highlights, special features, including players & managers highlights.
      I've got to say (again) at £50 pa. it's got to be real value.  if you can afford it I suggest, maybe you should think about it. Good, clear, articulate, intelligent interviews. I do know, this quality & ability, does NOT always win games, but if they did, I think NM (& DFC) would be somehere in the top six.
      This topic was NOT raised to either over-criticise, or over-praise NM (because I accept what it all boils down to, is points on the board) But some managers in his position would be in "panic-mode" & be bombarding us all with the usual cliches & frankly, be talking a load of rubbish !! ... On that level, of managing, to avoid this, & continuing to remain calm, I still give him full marks. I understand that there are, & will be, many DFC fans still not convinced, he is the right man for the job. Only time will tell, just how close he is to achieving his goals for DFC, & transfer his theoretical knowledge into something more concrete on the park, in terms of results. I think he can & he will. But I accept I might be wrong. But again today, he sounded thoughtful, confident. & sensible.
      As it stands just now, I enjoy listening to him. He's a clear speaker, though, me being a bit deef, I wid appreciate sub-titles  (ken that's asking too much) But what I do pick up, I really like. What is needed to add the cream onto the cake of course, is these illusive points. (I am entering desperation territory) That said, if he can convince me, & others, & Club & players, it's going to happen, while we hover roond the bottom o' the division, surely he has got something special to offer.
      Against St. J. would be the ideal time to make this break-through. So DFC players, fans & supporters Let's get right behind them & get this, much needed, illusive win 
      Don't Know if NM's interviews are available outwith subscribing, but I widnae object if they made them weekly available on a free basis for all DFC fans who struggle a bit.

      I know the timing of this question at this particular moment is no' very clever. But I'm feeling some of the threads seem a bit "stuck" on here and I am trying to introduce something else ...
      That's only meh opinion of course (whit might be boring to some, could well be enthralling to someone else)
      OK, let's stretch oor imagination, look into the near, or far off, or, no quite sae fae off future, and see Dundee City turning into a One- City- Club ... That's us of course
      Could we given time expect to be a real threat in the Premiership? Regular good winning performances against the more elite clubs?  And ever growing attendances
      This is looking away far ahead of my lifetime. There is no guarantee it will be DFC. But were it to happen, what can we expect? What's your expectations & ambitions?
      The idea of this Topic, came about by another comment on another thread, around Aberdeen FC, when Bubster said (rightly) AFC's success has been relatively recent.
      So were this too happen, would we eventually be a real force to be reckoned with in Scotish Football? Or wid we,as usual, jist joogle along in time honoured fashion?
