    He turned down a Premiership club and took a wage reduction to stay at Dundee and the first thing you come away with is "would he make as much elsewhere?". Get a grip of yourself.

    Well blow me..... (😮), went and told the missus I was planning on buying mine and she reckoned 'we' would save money if she was going to the games with me (true) so I've just bought two ST's. I think we've each shuffled along a seat from our old ones (officially) but there's another £510 quid into the coffers. Was originally planning on not getting them for another year to shift debt but hey ho, gotta be in with the in crowd.

    Beginning of the end for me. It's not enough that these two clubs have all the financial advantage, or that they stranglehold the voting structure, now they want to ensure their youngsters and youth squads are unfairly advantaged as well. So they'll have an even better opportunity to scoop up all the young talent (barely any of which they ever give a first team game to) with the prospect of playing professional football against professional clubs and no incentive to loan them out. They'll scoosh that bottom league leaving us a situation where the OF begin to demand promotion for their second teams, or otherwise the team finishing 3rd will...

    Bought a season ticket after many years PATG and choosing games, persuaded another ex ST holder to buy one, both full price season tickets.

    I’ve been a Dundee fan for over 30 years and like a lot of Dundee fans I’ve never bought a season ticket, this is where the problem lies at the moment as there is no games for the pay at the gate supporter to hand their money to the club, we have basically the same amount of support as the scum over the road but we have more pay at the gate supporters and they have more season ticket holders, I’m actually going to buy a season ticket for me and my two sons as it will help the club. We have a lot of fans who are sadly not...

    We've been behind them in fan engagement for years - as long as I've been alive. They're always going to outstrip us as 2 generations ago grew up with European football, winning the league. The last generation has seen a couple of Cup wins. This generation will be taken along for the journey because, the two before it will take them. People seriously need to stop talking about United. Stop comparing ourselves to a united and stop popping off at United at every opportunity. They've just won the league and their crowds will swell due to that. Are we in a precarious position? Possibly. No more so than the rest...

    Our captain has walked away after refusing a paycut during a pandemic. Maybe this can help galvanise our brilliant support. The Deefiant season showed that our passion can make a big difference. I think any player who is still here come the start of the season will be backed from the 1st minute to the 90th minute, and that's going to put points on the board.

    Was speaking to someone at the club this morning. Told the following - Hoping to have Hazard back (possibly on a permanent deal) but depends what happens with the Forster/Gordon situation a Celtic, he might end up being needed as their 3rd keeper. We’re still hopeful of Berra but looking at other centre halves in case the Neilson arrival changes things. We’re bringing a couple of boys in from the States on trial. We’re a good way down the road with a striker (didn’t get a name). There’s an offer from the SPL for one of our midfielders (got confirmation it wasn’t Dorrans or Gowser). Guessing Byrne but that is...

    Just bought a couple of season tickets. Let's hope we can shift a decent number. Mon the Dee!

    I am lucky in the fact that the pandemic hasn't affected me financially in the way it has hit others, i will now buy a season ticket after reading that statement despite getting to just roughly half the games..... Positive for me is the honesty, the club has some serious challenges ahead but doesn't seem to shirk them in the statement, but so does the rest of Scottish football. As for players leaving, its getting clubs that will take players on, Hemmings and Dorrans mentioned above will be on good wages, just my opinion but all clubs will be looking to cut back their playing squads not just ours.....signing players...

    I wonder if it’s announced that the players have taken a wage deferral(hopefully) and not a cut, it will possibly bring the players and fans together not seen since the defiant season, Dens gets criticised sometimes for being a hard place to play for home players because of the negativity from the stands. But I bet that defiant season, opposition teams hated coming to Dens, if the players are asked to make a deferral, I genuinely think we could be looking at the same type of defiance next season, if players are prepared to take a hit on wages, then us as fans will back them to the hilt and...

    Great servant Gavin was to Dundee FC and richly deserves any praise. Jim Duffy- An absolute legend! A great guy,terrific player and IMHO was a great manager for us. Jim Duffy should always be mentioned when it comes to commitment to DFC and should always be highly regarded.

    See the things next door are on the verge of appointing Steve Mc Claren to be their gaffer. He wont come cheap and will more than likely want his own backroom staff in. They are already millions in debt, and if he is indeed appointed it will be another huge salary on top of an already massive wage bill . Teams all over Scotland are cutting back and yet the things are splashing the cash like confetti. It is not going to end well..... and none of that lot across the road can see it coming.

    Listening to the open goal Si Ferry interview, with Gavin Rae. He said that he gave up his signing on fee when he joined Rangers to help the club, after being persuaded by JD to do so. Seeing that JD put his own money into the club earlier when we were in trouble, surely both should be in the next Hall of Fame awards And both of them were excellent players for us.

    Each to there own but I won't be asking for any refund from the club. Wouldn't even dream of it. I also think we are very lucky to have the Americans and we should be thanking them for the amount of money they have put in to our club! Fair enough they have got management appointments wrong but the managers have always been backed very well.

    Yes we are public enemy number one down Tynecastle way. I naively reacted to a post on social media where folk were getting stuck into the Dee. Jambo - “going down the shitter” - as in DFC are. Valentke- “enjoy yourself when you get there”....All rage broke out from said Jambo “invest your time in buying a season ticket You xxxxxxxx xxxxxxx” Val “bought two in March” jambo “hope you kept your receipt You xxxxxxxx xxx” val “ I don’t keep receipts but do keep programmes and I’ve this beauty from 03/05/86” well meltdown commenced all round and I went to bed!

    Lawyers acting on behalf of the SPFL have formally responded to the court action taken by Hearts and Partick Thistle over their relegations. Hearts and Thistle are challenging their respective demotions from the Premiership and Championship after the season ended early because of Covid-19. No date has yet been set for a hearing at the Court of Session in Edinburgh. Dundee United are also expected to respond to the 'Get back down where you belong, you dirty arab b*****ds' petition.

    Well done to @Wattie Rojas and every single dee who donated. Some effort boys and girls. The £10,000 target was reached this morning it seems with a very big donation by the Charlie Cooke Dark Blues To all involved......

    Wouldn't dream of asking for anything back for the loss of games this season or a refund for next season either. What I would appreciate though is some kind of relaxation of the rules on kids tickets. Me and the Mrs pay for full price ST's more often than not and pick up 2 or 3 kids tickets too. Next season though the kids price jumps up to £100+. I think that's too much and potentially stopping, what could be, our future adult supporters from attending.

    The majority of people seem to agree it was unfair for Hearts/ Thistle/ Stranraer to be relegated when they still had a chance of saving themselves. I suppose that's why restructuring is on the agenda. I'd be happy to see a bigger top league and more play off options. However, why is it unfair that teams get relegated when they can save themselves, why is it fair for teams to be promoted when they still had a chance of blowing it? Ok, I don't really have beef with United getting promoted. I'd say they were 99.999999% certain to go up as champions. But, just to accommodate Hearts, a 14 team...

    I will be buying 2 on Tuesday from the ticket office once the Monday scramble has finished. Didnt have one last season for the first time in years.

    I think the problem with the season tickets is that the online system is, frankly, a shambles, and the ticket office has been closed. I would normally have renewed my ST by now, but held off when it wasn't clear exactly what was happening with next season. I want to renew it now, but so far haven't been able to.

    The govt furlough scheme, the spfl prize money, the James Anderson money, the crown engineering money, the fans' fund and now the season ticket money should keep things ticking over. It's a pity we didn't get the 2nd home derby on. Hopefully the money from the insurance company will come in too.

    That's the 10k up thanks to an unbelievable donation from the Charlie cook dark blues. Thanks to everyone who has donated to the fund. I'll keep it open for a while longer as there are still a few things going on. 💙

    We’re absolutely not going part time. I can 100% confirm that. Spoke to someone senior in the club this morning. The money men are prepared to foot the bill for the majority of the losses we incur this season but there will be a little cloth cutting. Told cutting the youth setup is not on the table as that’s a key part of Strachan and McPake’s plans for the future, they are both fully invested in bringing home grown players through and neither would entertain it. United on the other hand have had a zoom call where they made clear to their players they are in financial difficulty which is...

    I genuinely wouldn’t.... Been done to death on here I think, but the night we relegated them, we should have had a season ticket renewal leaflet on every seat, even a half season ticket one. 9,000 dees that night, in love with our club, with our foot on our throat of our rivals... Its the simplest things that make the big difference.

    I can't afford 1 out right but will take out a finance option and pay up to help the club. Every little helps even buying strips etc. will provide much needed cash flow.

    With the £450 from the prototype home top added to the £7500, the fans' fund should break through the £8000 mark tomorrow. Thanks so much to the DSA, DFC, DFCSS, all the supporters' clubs and individual Derry boys and girls who have donated so generously. No better fans in the land 👏💙

    Whilst I'd love to see the rug pulled out from under those filthy b*****ds over the road I have to say it would be a concern to me if Hearts were allowed to decide that their promotion was cancelled. Once I stopped laughing I'd be outraged.

    I think can say with confidence there was no struggle. While the issues of Celtic being handed the title and Hearts being relegated were fiercely debated behind closed doors, on Whatapp, in the papers and in broadcasting studios, according to ICT the play-offs were "barely ever mentioned" and so Scotland become the only country on the planet to end the season early, promote one team and needlessly scrap the play-offs. Inverness, Ayr and Dundee played a combined 73 games in a bid to get promotion but voted against playing a handful of play-off games behind closed doors to claim the promotion play-off final place the rules entitle them to. There's...

    I'm maybe just an over principled twonk but the whole thing stinks and I'm rapidly losing interest. Genuinely wondering if it's time to forget all about football, because the decisions being discussed have nothing to do with sport, fairness, fans or less wealthy teams.

    Suspect you might be right Billy. Haven't had a season ticket for 15 years or so, but got one on Tuesday. Also got one at the same time for my brother whose never had a season ticket in his life before. Even though I'm not keen on him, I got two together, so if social distancing comes in, then, silver lining. Wait and see what October brings eh. Strong need to support the club financially at this time though.

    There's talk of a foundation thing being set up with monthly donations going straight to Dfc. Ian Baird is helping with setting up the website. With this in mind maybe DFCSS are right to hold onto the money.

    This is so, so key. As you know I was on here almost every day in the early part of last season fighting the manager’s corner and saying we had to have patience given he was both a rookie and doing a rebuilding job. And I think we were starting to get rewarded for that patience before the season got cut short. We all have to rally round next season. Looks like Hearts will try to buy their way out of the league so while we will be hoping to give them a challenge, we might need to accept 2nd place is more realistic, particularly if we have to run...

    Our historic club might up and leave at some point, but Dens will always be our spiritual home. This, I believe, is the oldest aerial picture of Dens. It was taken in 1922. Five days after this photo was taken, the Dee beat Partick 1-0 in front of 17,000. At the time, our ground was situated on the edge of the city limits.

    The league should have been postponed, and continued when the restrictions would allow teams to be able to play behind closed doors. Those last 8 matches could have been played now, even if that meant starting the the next session a couple of weeks later. The SPFL caused this whole shit show due to their inability to lead at any level and if they had any spine, Doncaster and co should resign. Just like other countries, the league could have restarted and we would have had a normal completion of the league, where no one could have complained about being cheated out of anything or unfairly treated. Hearts are whinging...

    • 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.

    • Realistically When Will We Get Live Football At Dens?
      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.

    • Hearts
      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.
