  4. 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.

  5. 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" and it's great when they come and you can say "I was there" T

  6. 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.

  7. Difficult choice.....mouse cursor wanted to go for the 3rd one ;0) I've seen 2 major trophies, and I think our best chance of me seeing a 3rd is for the Club to take a huge leap forward, with the changes the new stadium should bring. I feel the continued increasing costs of keeping Dens up to standard will be too great a drain on turnover....and we'd also be facing a change of ownership (& funding) if the new stadium doesn't happen.

  9. Born and bred in Perth and, to be honest, I've no real idea why I plumped for DFC. My old man, although he had a 60s DFC scarf after going to some big Euro nights and a soft spot for Dundee (which I still have) was more of a Rangers man, but he played pro when he was young at Huddersfield, so never really went to games as he then managed at Junior level after he was forced to retire young due to injury. While ironically his brother played for United a few times before getting married and packing football in for love and moving down under. Hence my Gran bought me United shirts when I was young

  10. 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.

  15. I think the stadium move would see us make progress as a club and maybe even become self sufficient. A trophy win would shut the DAB's up for the foreseeable but it's a no brainer for me.......... LIQUIDATE THE CHUNTS!!!!!😎

  19. 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.

  20. Agree on Motherwell doe the reasons you say and also an old work colleague is a diehard of theirs as well, so that has built a link with them for me as well. Yeah, I say that about being a neutral but I suppose there's nothing stopping me doing it now, as I don't do away games with The Dee much anymore. However, like I think @Boba Fett mentioned earlier, I've pretty much fallen out of love with football in recent years. I only look for score relevant to us and find watching games on TV to be really quite boring. I tend to even turn MOTD off halfway through these days and that's even with

  21. I once called someone a Black b*****d. I was told when I sobered up the next morning. It was over 30 years ago, but it scared the crap out of me. I felt so ashamed that I could say such a thing. But I did. I don't know if the guy at Tannadice feels ashamed now or how he felt immediately after saying it. I also don't know what should be done about it. I don't really see this as a Club problem. I am ashamed for the city. Is this how we have brought people up? Could this guy live next door or be the guy that fixes my car or operates on my heart, or whose daughter plays football with mine? I

  22. It’s the most irrational thing to support a team that’s let me down more often than I care to remember. Many times when we were expected to win, should have won, could have won etc, etc. Its my team, good bad or bloody awful, it’s as simple as that, it’s my team.

  38. Again good honest report, that said and in light of the time differences between what you had said and the incident on Friday, TV has changed as pointed out by Cobra, Education throughout society has change dramatically since then which should have removed these types of comments from our vocabulary. Kids today certainly don’t think this way, the banter of old from our generation has long gone and although funny in Love thy neighbour or similar programmes and films from that era, It was so long ago that it would be furthest phrase from our thoughts. Although the individual may now regret

  39. 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.

  44. 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.

  47. 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.

  48. Went for gowser, Mcpake at the dump and deefiant season. Gowser- just pipped GGH for me. His attitude and commitment to the club has been spot on ever since he arrived. Ok he has had off field troubles but he’s outlasted 10’s of players and 4 (I believe) managers. Mcpake goal at the dump - yes it was to snatch a draw but my god, not seen as wild a celebration for a long long time. It also started (as cobra highlighted) the free fall of those arrogant b*****ds. A truely special moment up there with gradys winner and Dariuszs goal at Dens. Deefiant season - easily c

    • 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.

    • Ex Dee Interview: James McAlister
      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.

    • End? of Season Report Card 2019/20
      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.
