    All the best for 2020 to all members of 'The Dark Blue(s) Nation'. Lang may yer lum reek! ....the last couple of years have not produced much on the pitch that we'd wish to remember, hopefully we'll leave that behind us & show steady improvement through to May, and maybe a quick return to the Premiership via the playoffs. (I don't believe in miracles ;0) Oh, aye....and some positive 'concrete' news on the stadium development plans would also be very welcome! The 'Blind Faith' that keeps us supporting our team, year after year, needs to be fuelled with good news from time to time....and this is one of those times!

    My first game was v Hearts at Tynecastle in 1954. I've been a Dee all my life despite living in the central belt where most if not all support one of the ugly sisters. My Dad brought me up as a Dee and trained me into expecting us to lose when we expected to win and vice versa. When Dundee aren't playing i look forward to going to a match without the pressure that comes from watching MY team but get bored pretty quickly and nine times out of ten leave early. Its a hard life being a Dee but as my Dad used to say "We have our moments"...

    I don't think it's obvious. Rory Loy and John Baird scored plenty in this division. Until Shankland has delivered against quality defenders he'll remain unproven as a truly top goalscorer as far as I'm concerned. We all assumed Stewart and Hemmings would tear it up at Birmingham and Oxford but both failed miserably.

    I don't think we were ever winning the league. Utd are better equipped and I think we are still building. McPake's brought in a lot of players but they're not necessarily the players he wanted just the players who were available. Sometimes you've got to make a couple of moves to get to the player that you want whilst hoping that those on your books that you do want to keep don't decide to move on. It a tough ask to expect any manager, never mind a rookie, to build a league winning squad in one window imo.

    That's pretty much how I feel too. Duncan Ferguson had me interested recently as I liked the way he brought everyone together for the cause, reminded me a bit of the Deefiant season. Can't stand Man City as everything seems so plastic, a bit like Man United and their Asian fans although I like how even though they could buy almost anyone in the world they still persist with youth. I saw recently that they'd played 4000 games on the bounce with a home grown player in their team going back to the 1930's. They've got the pick but it's still an amazing stat.

    After some thought I've gone for option C. Here's why... Dundee move into new stadium (probably cements DFC's long-term future) Dundee win major trophy (brings a day of unforgettable bliss) Dundee United liquidated (probably cements DFC's long-term future + brings a day of unforgettable bliss)

    Bloody hell, Cobra....you're no' half making us work tonight....GeDee'll be here half an hour with the number of decades he's had as a Dee. 50's....Billy Steel & 2 League Cups (even though I was too young) 60's....Where do I begin? The title. The European Cup run. Gillie's goals in 63/64. The cup final. All the other European seasons. Buying Charlie Cooke from Aberdeen to replace Gillie, and the fury of The Sheep. 70's....The League Cup. Strachan. 80's....The hope that The Cobra & The Mongoose brought us. The arrival of Archie, and Jocky, as managers....briefly. 90's....Weighorst (the real one!). Duffy. 00's....All those superb players (but flattened by the under-achievement of it...

    I was delighted it went well for Ferguson because he brought something to Everton that's massively missing in the game now but in many ways glad it was short and sweet. Nothing worse than watching something like that flourish and then quickly crumble and die. Didn't know that about Man U. That is some stat.

    50 years next Feb 28...we play Arbroath on 29th, nice leap year touch. It's in the blood. When I decided to go to a match, it was Dens. United never entered my head, literally. My dad never took me to the 1961-63 title and European games, said I wasn't interested, chicken and egg thing. At least he passed on the Dee gene. *Dundee 3 Kilmarnock 0. Steve Murray was in our team, Jocky and Stubby I suppose, J McLean for them. Prob Tommy as well.

    Having heard the recording I think it is pretty obvious that they should be apologising in advance to Kane, but I still do think that it is hard for any club to control what their fans may do, just think a wee public apology would have been a nice touch, although didn’t really expect it after the way they handled the biters behaviour.

    Good post andrak, whilst I'm not condoning this guy's actions at the derby I too would be prepared to give him the chance to redeem himself, although I appreciate it's not my call. If it's a drunken moment of madness then, whilst it's 100% wrong, we'd pretty much all be hypocrites if we were to say we haven't been there. Football can bring out the worst in people when tensions are running high and I'm willing to bet that the same guy wouldn't shout the same thing at a black individual if he was in Tesco.

    I don't think folk need to dwell on how they spoke in the 20th Century. The days of Love Thy Neighbour are long gone. Everybody knows in 2019 how corrosive that language is and there's no excuse for it.

    I would be amazed if his comment was intended to indicate any player. Much much more likely a realistic appreciation of the number of posters on here who used the word rookie, just go, etc etc. Think he is getting people to buy into what he is doing NOW.

    Maybe we should be looking to also tie some of the better performers on longer deals . We have lacked continuity for a number of years chopping and changing .

    Good to see the BBC picking this story given that this kind of things blows up when it happens south of the border. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/scottish-championship To be fair to DUFC they appear to be handling it in the right way.

    Yeah I've seen one or two daft comments but the vast majority of fans want the guy found and dealt with, a lot of fans (myself included} have said that it's difficult to hear what is being shouted but it's true that when someone suggests to you what it was then that's what you start hearing. I would love this guy to be found and made an example of and also the idiots that threw coins and the moron who laid a hand on the United player, all of those events are very worrying imo and need to be addressed before our derby games get out of hand, it would...

    38 years a Dee for me. First game was about 32 years ago. Grandad, Dad, Mum, Brother, Sister, nephews and now my own sons.. None of us have any choice in the matter.. My interest in football outside of the Dee has dropped off massively over the last ten years or so, but something keeps me heading back to Dens every other week. I keep telling myself my real team are Bayern Munich.. it makes no difference.

    For me I’d look to get rid of Todd, put McPake back to Rangers and try and get Moore and Mulligan away out on loan. If Mackie keeps up the performance he showed in the derby then I’d keep him as that left side with him and Marshall looked really solid and also provided a good attacking threat. Priority has to be an out and out right sided midfielder/winger, while McGowan has played well in the last few games it’s very noticeable that he plays more narrow and our right side gets exposed more often. People might blame Kerr but he constantly has two on ones against him due to...

    60 years ish. Grandfather and father both Dees as was an uncle who took me to Dens from the early 60s. Plenty of highlights including winning the league (Muirton on the last day of the season was my first ever away game), the League Cup win in '73, the Centenery & Alba Cup wins, promotions, DEEFIANT season, European games in the 60s & 70s (the European Cup run to the semi, ditto the Fairs Cup run, going down to Leeds for the semi, the wins v Cologne & AC Milan in the 71/72 season). Then there was Perugia the best away trip ever despite the result. The Bonetti teams, Caniggia,...

    I actually thought Mackie had a really good game yesterday. In particular, his vision and passing accuracy for the ball played to DJ was inch perfect over a longish distance. I think Mackie does bring something to the team and I can’t think of a player (within reason) off the top of my head that I’d be quick to replace Mackie with.

    At 48 years old I burst into tears when CW33 scored - howling like a bairn. A moment I’ll never forget and cherish until I go to the high stand. I was doing my post xmas clear out of my wardrobe today and found a signed defiant season t-shirt- £xxx I paid for it in a drunken stupor - best season of the decade by far as we were all together.

      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...



      Elton (captain)

    • 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.
