    Considering we got beat, I came away thinking on another day we would have won that game, we got no luck or decisions whatsoever, whereas Hibs got every decision and all the luck throughout the whole game! But I was proud of every player in Dark Blue tonight, we never gave up and I honestly thought we were the better team for large parts of the game.and it is only going to get better as we have Andrew Davies to come in soon for Kusunga and I also liked the look of O Sullivan and Robson looked really composed, and I think might be the biggest signing for JM so far if he can stay fit. Add that to the rest of the team that Jim has brought in and I think we are in a good place and I feel much more confident that we will win the undoubted battle we are going to face in the coming weeks, also have to say I wasn’t keen on the JM appointment, but I was well wrong! And thank you Jim for giving us some hope and pride back in our team! Can’t wait for games again and it’s a long time since I felt like this.

    Will be pretty disappointed to say the least if the Club make no effort to hang on to Cammy Kerr. Incredibly loyal, hugely committed and a lad that takes huge pride in wearing the jersey every time we wears it. I agree with those that say that sentiment is best kept out of the argument when it comes to offering contracts but Cammy has passion, energy and enthusiasm in bundles and if he wasn’t close to being good enough them I fail to understand how he can have played the number of times he has, captained the team and won our Player of the Year award at the age of 23. If he is going through a tricky spell then it’s time the Club provided him with the support he’s given them off and on the park over the years. Cammy has attributes that can not be bought nor learned and in my view the weaknesses in his game are things that can be worked on. No other player in recent memory at Dens has been hurting as badly as the supporters through bad times, no other player would shed the buckets of tears our support would in the event of getting some real success, no other player in quite a long time has grown up supporting the Club, played so many games and still had ten good years left in him. Football Clubs and It’s supporters dream of having lads with an attitude like his playing for them. He’s done enough to prove he can do it by wearing the armband and being our best player less than a couple of years ago. If ever someone deserved a second go for me it’s Cammy Kerr, his attitude is spot on and he’s got plenty time on his side to learn. Would be lazy and unforgiving to ditch him, he is well and truly one of our own and I make no apologies for saying so. I’ve nothing but absolute respect and admiration for Cammy Kerr, I wish him well and hope that common sense prevails in terms of his future at Dundee.if the current Manager doesn’t fancy him and he needs regular game time perhaps a contract extension and another spell out loan could be the answer, at the very least be a better option than parting company in my view.

    The fans haven't caused this latest mess but they can certainly help the club by coming out in numbers for the remaining home games. The team needs their support as it is in a three way battle to retain it's top flight status. We are clear of bottom just now but could find ourselves adrift in a few games time with the Old Firm to play. The club needs the money to balance the books as the accounts show year after year after year. We get an average of around 4600 home fans a league game this season (down a couple of hundred on last season and down by several hundred on the first season up). We have around 2500 fans that only attend home derbies as we sell out or just short of sell out our 7000 plus capacity home ends every single time there's been one since 2014. Not everyone can make it and so on, but it's high time a proportion of these stay away fans return and support the club to help it on and off the park as there's a real risk we could return to the second tier, which with these yearly figures would be a disaster for the club and it's future. People will say it's too dear. I've argued that for years. It is - but there's deals and not that many home games left. The club are doing a Hearts and Celtic adult ticket for both games deal for £44 which is obviously £22 a game, same as you would pay against Livi and Hamilton as opposed to £30 for Celtic and £26 for Hearts if you bought separately. After those 2 games, we only have 1 home game left before the split and will only get 2 home games after it. 5 home games left. A deal on for the first two of them. IF you have the money and can make it - stop posting about DFC on social media and forums and get along to Dens and support your team. It is absolutely vital looking at the league table and the accounts that you do. DDYB

    I would say that Cammy Kerr is one of the better right backs in the bottom six, he's the sort of player St Johnstone would get for free and he would be there for years performing week in week out, nothing spectacular but on the teamsheet every week. When you look at the money we spend on bringing in players that dont perform before giving them more money as a pay off, giving Kerr, a player whose performances lead to him becoming club captain another contract looks like money well spent. Make him feel wanted, give him a bit of confidence and get him back to performing how he was before the confidence was knocked out of him.

    Woods was really good tonight I thought. Thought that was one of his better games.

    If a large section of a football support were singing "you black b*****d" or whatever, there would be fines and the club would eventually be forced to play games behind closed doors. I don't see why the response should be different for this. Clarke looks shaken up by that abuse and ready to jack it in. We simply wouldn't tolerate a black manager going through that without repercussions.

    Cammy Kerr is an excellent defender. Not many 1v1 will get past him. The Rangers game at Dens is an eg of Cammy at his best. He does need to improve on his crossing but he'll know that. He is also very fast.,an asset in a wide position,something that Horsefield lacks. Horsefield is the better user of the ball but as an ex winger myself I would have preferred playing against Horsefield than Cammy. I'm hopeful that he stays on. There are far worse players at Dens than Cammy Kerr.

    I think he's a good player having a difficult season. Gary Irvine was ripped to shreds by fans when he was part of a badly-organised, struggling Dundee team. When the team was balanced and competitive Irvine became something of a cult hero. The armband was a distraction Cammy didn't need and he has struggled at a club with a revolving door for managers, coaches and players but he deservedly won Player of the Year and I'm sure he'll come good again either at Dens or elsewhere.

    Just watched the full game back on BT Sport there for the first time since being at the game. Can you dominate a game where you get beat 4-2 because I think we did from start to finish for the majority of that? The better team, which sounds truly bizarre after a 4-2 defeat, but we passed it better than them and lead on the front foot for large spells. 4-2 an extremely harsh outcome. Miller's first is 100 percent onside so we should have got a 4-3 minimum. Wouldn't say it was a stonewaller on Ryan McGowan but it could have been given if the ref saw it on another day. There's something very watchable about this side that McIntyre has assembled in January. The performance last night also completely rubbishes the claim on here from an anti McIntyre poster that we're now a route one hoof ball side that doesn't play football. Encouraging performance with great character after going 4-1 down. We surely have enough to finish 10th with these players.

    I am not sure why any supporter's loyalties would fade but living far away and in a differing lifestyle may have a effect on the weak minded. When I lived in Dundee I worked with a guy who went to both Dundee and Utd home games, I would wind him up about who he would want to win a derby. He had an excuse, he was English! Although I go to occasion MLS Seattle Sounders games I just don't have the passion for them. There is only one team for me, my dad lifted me over the turnstiles around 60 years ago, I was there when we won the league, the cup in 73. I get up at 6:45 am on game day, sometimes 4 am if it is an early kick-off. Dundee is in my blood, clearly not the case with this gentleman. Dee for Life, United are sh**e

    I saw the goal, heard the music and was checking BT Sport feed to confirmed who scored. When the music went off I looked up, saw the players lined-up and thought I'd better quickly announce the goal. Not my finest moment.

    I find that statistic very difficult to believe tbh, where has it come from? Not saying it's wrong but just doesn't smell right. But yeah, I did actually think his second half was very good, made a lot of good touches and good interceptions and he obviously chipped in with the goal which was a really good effort.

    Not many wingers have taken Cammy apart-Todd of Q o S at Dens is about the only one that comes to mind. Good pace and can tackle -definitely worth keeping.

    Stay and fight/ still young still learning. Would give him at least a year deal but maybe someone else will offer more which might tempt him. IMO he’s a decent player, lovely lad in couple of times I’ve spoken to him .

    I'm not a referee, however, my Dad and a good friend of mine are. I have quite often attempted to argue with them along the same lines as the above. This tends to get shot down pretty quickly when you put yourself in the shoes of match officials. They have a million things to take into account in split second decisions - they will get things wrong. It's tough to appease everyone when something you're making a decision is subjective. I am not attempting to vindicate the linesman / referee from Friday, I'm pointing out that it is the human condition to make mistakes. Things will naturally be missed; hence the introduction of VAR at elite level football. How many times have you watched a game from the stands, absolutely certain that this was a foul, that should have been a penalty etc. to only then re-watch the highlights at a later time and see that you were incorrect? I'm sure the same things will happen with referees and their assistants. I do slightly agree with you, however. There are only a certain amount of referees that can officiate top level fixtures. It always appears to be the same faces week in, week out. When a player makes a mistake, it is treated with some contempt and derision from the fan base. However, they will likely be dropped from the squad and replaced until they improve or circumstances dictate that they be brought back into the fold. This doesn't appear to be happening to referees. No matter the mistake, the abhorrence about, or the injustice imposed on a decision, they'll simply turn up to a different top flight ground and officiate another match the following Saturday. Why can't we drop referees?

    Well just back from the game. Chomp and myself having a good old chat on various things, sectarianism, racism and many other aspects of the Scottish game, only to have another couple of pints to iron out the finer points to help the Scottish game. Firstly, what I like about this team is the we never gave up or the heads went down after a few goals. I like the players in this team and even though we got beat tonight, at least we got beat trying. However, we really need to cut out the individual errors that are causing us goals. I felt that Kusunga fell down in the hope the ref would blow for a foul, and he had the easier option of passing back to Dieng. This was an issue of individual errors on the night that the team being bad and out fought by Hibs. I thought that we out played Hibs in parts of the game, but you cannot give away stupid goals the way that we did. Can't take anything away from Mallan, his goal was well taken, even thought the bastard likes scoring against us. I am still concerned about the team selection. I don't understand why McIntyre had to change the whole front line rather than just replacing Miller for Nelson? To me that would have been the sensible thing to do. Our first goal came from Wright coming in from the left to find McGowan. he should have stuck with Wright on the left and Dales on the right IMO. I know we got beat, but I see a lot of improvement with us. I just want the General to cut out the stupid mistakes.

    100% get the deal done for option A and move on. End of the day we all want what’s best for DFC. IMO Whether they get 8k or 140k does it really matter, as the funds would just sit with DFCSS or be reinvested back into the club, thus taken away potential 140k of investment for a period of time, as I would assume DFCSS wouldn’t reinvest this all in one go. Seems some people are desperate for the club to be held back from any progress again IMO.

    Well, i for one am delighted they are out! Regardless of any benefit to us as a club, as fans it is absolutely natural to take delight in our neighbours' downfall. After all, we have enough capacity to fear for Dundee whilst laughing at our neighbours. At least I do!

    They just got pumped out the cup in the 92nd minute. Their stadium had an extra thousand glory hunters that only rock up when they get a sniff of those orange boiler suits they wear at a day out and Hampden and Coll Donaldson's hopefully away to rip the f**k out of them on twitter after getting it tight after their midweek game. Delicious.

    no debate, Cammy is an excellent player and we should extend his contract young and still learning. hope we keep him. he is a much better player than Fraser from county imo.

    Craig Curran has been class when he's played. Nelson loves playing off him as he's just got so much to work with - have a wee look at the goals Nelson has scored. Last night is the only time where we've really retained any sort of attacking influence without him on the pitch. I think Darren McGregor is probably one of the best defenders in the country (if not the best?) at handling the brutal stuff Curran does so I think it was one where another style helped. I like Kenny Miller but he's got zero athleticism and for the most part, it's been like playing a man down with him in some games. I think certain opponents/games suit him a bit more than others. My hunch is that if we give him starts, we'll be a worse team all round and Nelson won't be as effective. Edit: Also, Curran was a doubt yesterday so likely wasn't 100%

    so f**cking frustrating.....I didn't think we played all that badly should have had a penalty at 0-0 the hibs boy should gave been sent of for putting his foot into macgowans face millers 1st goal was onside his 2nd looked tight as f**k.. 2 center halfs looked like they just met and finally keeper should have saved the 4th. we'll play worse than that this season and win.

    • 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.

    • 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...

    • 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.”

    • 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.

    • With book one having gone walkabout, our first travel back in time begins in the second tome, which picks up our story on Tuesday 17th September 1996 as Billy Thomson and Barry Smith could be found posing in The Courier with a mop and bucket just below the Dens Park Main Stand. According to the press, the goalkeeper and defender were hoping to ‘mop up’ Aberdeen in the quarter final of the Coca Cola Cup the next night, having seen off our neighbours in a penalty shoot-out in the previous round (which must feature in the lost book!). With the Evening Telegraph exclaiming The Dons to be ‘red hot’, it was clear that the opposition, who had easily beaten Dundee in the previous year’s final, were strong favourites once again.

      Thomson and Smith may have been trotted out to the media pre-match but it was Paul Tosh who hit the headlines with a stunning cushioned header and volleyed finish, which would still be orbiting the planet now had it not struck the back of Nicky Walker’s net. The deadlock broken, the game ebbed and flowed, before the Dee’s Kevin Bain sent a searing volley against the Aberdeen crossbar, but as is so often the case for Dundee, punishment for that miss wasn’t far away. With the cleaning ladies in defence proving they couldn’t even deal with the merest hint of spilt milk, Smith and Thomson made a hash of a weak cross into the Dundee box; a case of ‘after you’ finding the keeper brushing against ex-Dundee striker Billy Dodds, who dutifully added a triple Salchow to his unabashed clatter to the floor. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the play actor then rubbed salt in the Dundee wounds by tucking the resultant spot kick into the bottom right corner of Thomson’s goal.

      Not long after burly ex-Hull man Dean Windass received a yellow card for Aberdeen for bundling into Dundee midfield maestro Chic Charnley, already booked alongside the home team’s Robbie Raeside in a melee after the penalty award,
