    It'll be good to see GGH grace the Dens Park turf again. Guaranteed a heroes welcome from most I would think.

    Apathy starting to be replaced with a wee bit of pride- time for everyone, who can, to get along to Dens in a fortnight and provide “Deefiant” backing.

    Absolute scenes at the equaliser. Most I've celebrated a goal this season.

    Agree with you on the above and it never ceases to amaze me the effect that a settled 'core' team can have. I would add that in the poll at the top of this page, the leader in choices to start is O'Dea with 53 out of 54. I don't think his return to the team and our better form is any coincidence.

    We need to catch both Saints and Accies- we are a point closer to 10th than this morning 👍

    Ralph was also good, his run and cross for Miller’s goal was something that we’ve been sorely lacking this season. I know McCann’s taken pelters for his crap signings this season but on the evidence of the last 2 games, I’ll stick my neck out and say Ralph is looking like he could become an improvement on Holt.

    Points mean prizes I know but with each game in recent weeks I'm really warming to JM. Looks like he knows what is required and what he is doing. Still early days.

    Wasn't there today but absolutely delighted to see that point on the board. I think we're an actual football team now so we can hopefully get a decent return this round of fixtures and then strengthen a bit in January. We had a couple of tight games and some wee unfortunate moments in the first games but there's no way in my mind that we'd have come close to taking anything from a team like Hibs.

    Liking the look of Jim’s team wasn’t a fan of his appointment but will be very happy to be proved wrong, and today was proud of this Dundee team for the first time in a long time, fought for every blade of grass, and looked dangerous every time we came up the park, not sure why we didn’t go for the win with the corner in the last minute? But hey ho am happy laddie tonight! Well done Jim Mac you have these players looking like a different team, I salute you!

    A return to basics, playing our best players in the positions they belong and giving us all a wee bit of pride back. Great stuff JM. Finally heading in the right direction.

    Nathan Ralph seems to be making the left back position his own, that was a great effort from him for the first goal today, beat his man and put in a great cross for Miller to score. O'Dea has shown in the last few days why he shouldn't have been left out the team. It is interesting that both Innis and Boyle have been no where the team. Haven't we played more or less 4-4-2 with players in their correct positions for a good few games now?

    It's a banana skin of a tie but it's a home tie against lower league opposition so we should be reasonably happy. Hopefully we will have the ne or two new signings in by then also.

    McGowan's attitude was spot on today and never let up. The one player who has impressed me since coming back into the team has been the 'General'. Pity about the own goal today though.
  24. 1 point
    The belief that JM appears to have given to some of these players and the team in general is striking. In recent times we would have been beaten at 1-0 with particular players waving the white flag. Not this bunch. Coming from 2-0 behind at Easter Road against a more than decent Hibs team deserves some plaudits. Well done to everyone involved and supporting the team. Really looking forward to the Hamilton game now.

    At last he has identified the weaknesses. Might just get us out of this but it will be tough.

    McGowan. He covered a lot of ground today and his link up play with Curran (who I also thought had a decent game) was good to watch at times. However, it was his awareness, experience, commitment and of course the goal that made the difference for me.

    4 stars for me. His hands are still very much tied with what he’s got to work with and the first 45 minutes looked as though we were going to get thrashed. Miller’s goal turned things around and the team came out hungry for the equaliser. I think a lot of this is credit to McIntyre. Under McCann we’d have been heads down after the first goal but credit where it’s due, McIntyre clearly has them working as a unit. Subbies are always going to be so so with what we’ve got. Both Millers were flagging after a hard shift. Woods I think was a tactical substitution due to his...

    agreed. i wonder how long ago the team/management merited comments like that?

    Definitely the glass half full view but tend to agree. Is it that teams like Aberdeen & Hearts play better against us than others or was it because we were crap against them. I tend to think both. Apart from today we have underperformed against such teams but I still have the feeling that we have been a little unlucky meeting same teams in that they have been in better form when we met them. I have said a number of times before that I still cannot believe the result in the season's opener at St Mirren. If that game hade gone our way as it shopuld have then the...

    Would have taken a point at the start of the day. The fact that this squad that most of us had written off came back from 2-0 down is very encouraging. Miller scoring in successive games. McGowan also on the scoresheet. Very happy with the days work despite St Mirren winning. If we can pick up the points against Accies things will look much more positive

    Gutted about St Mirren picking up a win but fair play to the team today. Really didn’t think we had that kind of fight in us so that’s promising.

    Well done Dundee, played some good stuff, comeback from 2 goals down and a battling performance.

    Unbelievable win for St Mirren, but that's still a good point for us, especially considering we went behind so soon. It's all about building and forgetting what happens in other games around the league, not many really expected us to take much from today, so it has to be seen as progress.

    McIntyre has us organized and a deserved draw, I can start to believe we could get out of this, St Mirren winning sucks

    McCann has certainly wrecked the squad. Dreadful rebuild. We plummeted under the Nelms/McCann stewardship. Couple of duffers.

    Controversial but.... Boyle was in woeful form at the time and Harris was a definite improvement in the immediate term IMO. Harris could come in and play on both wings and play relatively competent in any system. When Boyle was good, he was great but he was very unreliable and when he was poor, it really destroyed the teams productivity as he couldn't even trap a ball and retain possession. I think he always had that potential but he really just needed to go down a level to find consistency. Even now at Hibs, he's a player a million miles ahead of where he was but against a good team...

    Only thing is, he wasn't good enough for us at that point. I have no idea how folk find it difficult to understand that.

    • What Would You Change About the Club Right Now?
      If there was one thing you would change about the club which you believe would make a difference, what would it be?

      Me, I would change the following: Tannoy's/Speakers in the stadium, those things make my ears bleed every time they announce that the opposition have scored a goal!

    • Match Aftermath: St Johnstone 1 - 0 Dundee (25th Aug 2018)
      The Dark Blues lose their fourth game in a row away to St Johnstone, leaving the Dark Blues with no points in three league matches.

      Again it was a player who could have been a Dark Blue who scores. Tony Watt who had trained with the club joined St Johnstone earlier this month scored the only goal just after the break.

      Dundee again had plenty of chances but failed to monopolise on the them.

      St Johnstone 1 - 0 Dundee

    • Dundee Fantasy Game
      Just for a bit of fun I thought we could have a mini DFC fantasy game.

      Pick 11 Dundee players before our league season kicks off at 3pm on Saturday. Formation can be 4-4-2. 4-3-3 or 3-5-2. Five points for an appearance and 10 points for a goal. Captain scores double.

      Free to enter a team. Prize to be decided.

      This is my team...

    • Eh Mind O' Duffy (Part 2)
      Once in the hot seat at Dens, ‘Cowboy’ made ‘Wee Georgie’ his number one signing target, spending a full afternoon convincing the player that his future still lay in Dundee and resulting in the frontman re-signing until the end of the season. Shaw however, clearly had an axe to grind as The Courier headline revealed ‘Shaw Pays Big Tribute To McCormack’. With the ‘new’ signing explaining further… “If I’d been given the same offer by Jim Duffy back at the start of the season I wouldn’t have been looking for a move in the first place.” Going on to have another swipe at his ex-boss by adding “…And from where I am standing it seems there’s one rule for managers and one for players, because while I was unable to join another Scottish team because no-one could agree a fee with Dundee, Jim Duffy was able to take himself off to Hibs no problem.”

    • Eh Mind O' Duffy (Part 1)
      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.
