    As Attilio says, you hear some pretty unpalatable stuff shouted at Dens and from Dundee fans at away grounds from time to time. There's an element of glass houses here. Plenty posters willing to use this incidence to take a cheap shot at our rivals while conveniently forgetting we're not immune to similar behaviour.

    Director 1: So item number 1 on the agenda today is there are reports of a United fan giving Hemmings racist abuse. What do we do? Director 2: Give the fan free hospo? At least he's being vocal. Director 1: No we can't reward someone for scumbag behaviour. We did that with Goodwillie. Director 3: Just ignore it? Pretend it never happened. Director 1: Nah, we did that with the groundsman. We need to do something different. Director 4: Can we not just accuse a Dundee player of racism to deflect away from us? Director 1: I like it but we did that with McAlister already. Director 5: How about...

    Being an abomination of a club and being ahead of us today in the sporting sense are not the same thing. Thd Old Firm are both abominations but are likely to be champions every year. Some measurements aren’t as simple as points in the board.

    He hasn't had a chance to show whether he can follow instruction so I can only surmise he isn't putting the work in. Saying that in the media is pretty much hanging the lad out to dry, so it looks like he's done with us. Honestly getting sick of this season after season.

    Getting slightly worried that we are going to have another terrible January transfer window. Ross Callaghan would be a decent enough addition if we needed another centre mid signed. However, we already have more than enough cover in there and it is the position we have invested most money in already (Dorrans and Byrne will not be here cheap). All the Callaghan signing will do is leave some of our better players on the bench, or worse trying to force them onto the wing where they are ineffective. Todd for some reason McPake does not fancy. We don't know what happens behind the scenes but based on his brief appearances,...

    John Barlow I think should be John Barbour who's picture is in Dundee fc (images of sport book ) by Paul Lunney. Barbour was an inside forward and made 18 league and cup appearances in the1913/14 season and scored two goals.

    Good point Rev. I get the impression I've seen plenty of him but seen nothing at the same time. That speaks volumes to me.

    Give it a rest please. I am sure the poster that started this thread didn't want it to turn this way. There is no need for this at all.

    I think it's a good point. 66% of our first-team squad (excluding homegrown players) were signed by the manager appointed six months ago. Of the others Todd is apparently a problem and Nelson is stuck on the bench. Hamilton and Meekings are probably only here because we couldn't tear up their contracts. Hartley wanted his guys, McCann wanted his guys, McIntyre wanted his guys and now McPake demands his guys. In Europe you work with the what you've got but here players get paid off or loaned out the minute the new manager decides your face doesn't fit. McGowan is probably grateful for what the club have done for him...

    I took my American girlfriend at the time to her first football match at WHL. It was an FA Cup match between Spurs and Man City. Spurs raced into a 3-0 lead. City's one class player Anelka got injured after half an hour and then Barton was sent off on the stroke of half-time. I said at the break that Spurs are the Dundee of England. They will find a way to stress their fans out even in this situation. I didn't think that 10-man City might score 4 unanswered goals though but that's what happened. It was almost comical the way City scored an injury-time winner and there was...

    Your earlier comments were not to my liking, especially as I received the badge as a gift. However, discussion is always good as long as it is honest and constructive. Thanks to this Forum, I have obtained valuable information about the Players in question. A valuable exercise and perhaps a small way to keep their memory alive. We both agree on that, and that’s all that matters.

    Yeah I agree to an extent Harry and I didn't think you had agenda mate. I'm possibly being defensive of this decision as I feel that there's too many things going on that JMcP is being tried for. Looking at the Todd situation in isolation it's not like the manager has been regularly denying players first team football and forcing them out the door, Todd is one of two players who've performed well below their capabilities and I believe that's why they haven't been mainstays of our side. Both of these players have performed to a decent standard before but have failed to adapt to what's being asked of them...

    I don't feel Todd was afforded the opportunities to play a significant run of consecutive games like other players. The fact that Mackie will probably start again tonight about sums the situation up for me. JMcP seemed to look at Todd after one game or more likely a 20 minute cameo appearance and make his mind up from that. What looked like a decent squad at the start of the season doesn't look that clever to me now. Personally, I will take a lot from tonight's game in terms of morale at the club. We should be expecting a fighting performance from more than McGowan and Kerr so another ICT...

    It was a truly horrendous appointment. Our relegation was sealed during that disastrous international break. I always remember McIntyre rubbishing the squad when he first came in and saying how it would be a desperate slog to reach January when he could bring in his own players (or words to that effect). Contrast that to Klopp who took over a struggling Liverpool side and said he wasn't interested in signing anyone, he just wanted to work with the impressive squad he inherited. It was a lie but it was the right thing to say about a demoralised and under-performing group of lads. It's madness to take on a firefighting job...

    Yes as far as I’m aware, if there going on loan to clubs in a lower division and if it’s a development loan then they can still play for there parent club at there youth levels. Certainly was the rule a couple of years back when my lad went on loan and I don’t think the rule has changed.

    Very worrying. Didn't realise they both were the same type of player. We really really need to bin this idea that because a previous manager signed him a player would not be capable of turning in good performance for a new manager. Very disappointed that Todd seems to have fallen into this category. Does not seem to me to have had a consistent role to play in our team and as such if he wants away how could anyone blame him? Realise there are a fair few on here who don't rate him, but I feel he has not been part of McPakes plans, ever.

    No sure there's anything sinister in this to be honest. Don't know why Dundee would release pictures of a saturated pitch if they really believed the game should've went ahead.

    To an extent I agree but in the Derby McGowan, Hemmings and Dorrans were first to everything, Hemmings was giving the Utd back line two or three yards of a start and still beating them, Meekings (goal aside) was also effective against Shankland and Co. While I agree there’s a lack of genuine pace and positivity in our team that game proved we can compete with the best in our league, our problem is we don’t do it enough or in each and every game and that part should be easily rectified if the management want it to be!!

    A lot of us like the idea of fans' ownership. In theory it protects DFC from the rogues who've very nearly killed the club on a number of occasions. The trouble is we've put the concept into practice and it was an unmitigated disaster, as you've described above. Most Dees simply don't want to get involved or to even vote so you're going to end up with whoever puts themselves forward in charge, and if these people don't have the right skills and qualities it's going to lead to endless problems. In the worst case scenario, you have people who lack the skills and qualities to do the job and...

    • 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.
