    I think the club are looking at the bigger picture and implementing wage cuts now to safeguard the future of the club going forward. They have realised there will be tough times ahead and by acting now it gives us a better chance going forward rather than burying our head in the sand, splashing the cash in the hope everything will be rosy in 8 - 12 months time. We will not be the only club cutting back and in my opinion clubs who are not careful now and continue to carry on as normal will be in for a huge reality check as the months roll on. There is...

    Got my season tickets today but had to use the finance option for the 1st time due to being furloughed for 3 months. But a negative turned into a positive as 3 of my family who didn't have season tickets signed up as well. 7 of us now, just when the club needs it most. DDYB.

    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.

    Turning to all the other players I thank them for seeing the bigger picture and agreeing to the cuts. They've undoubtedly saved other members of staff's jobs with their selfless act.

    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...

    This is really poor speculating about players! Not fair hammering players that have maybe helped club

    I'm serious about this - if Nelms gives those begging b*****ds one penny after asking Dundee fans to dig deep and help the club out I will never put another penny into DFC. Dundee fans do not donate to initiatives to help our club only for the club to give that money to Dundee United. I'd be absolutely furious if this happens and so should every Dundee FC fan.

    The SPFL have actually gone to considerable lengths to mitigate harm to clubs via reconstruction proposals, as have Hearts. The clubs took hugely selfish decisions, rejected it and stuck up the middle finger. One of those was united, another was Raith. Those 2 in particular haven't acted in the best interests of other members, despite benefitting hugely from clubs willing to help them. They don't have a leg to stand on. Remember Mr. Nelms words - no clubs should be worse off than they were prior to the vote. He's tried to help all clubs, even our closest rivals, and they threw it right back at him pishing themselves. Might...

    Renewed my season ticket this morning wont let me upload the picture on here says 2MB but my mate who usually patg due to not being able to attend every home game is going to get one today aswell

    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.

    Our challenge kicks off Today ! We have 25 of your fellow #Dees running over the course of the next 4 weeks until we hit 1893 miles! All the money raised will be headed straight to @DundeeFC to help over the extended close season, however we as a group see fit. https://t.co/yu5Xv1W64a

    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...

    This is a really positive outcome, let’s hope we get a full house but if not hats off to the guys for accepting the deal.

    Notice some of the DABs moaning about Dunfermline's Nisbet signing for Hibs instead of them. They are critical of Hibs pleading poverty and then spending money on a player. Do they ever look at their own team? Getting into so much debt to buy promotion last season (I know we have had major debt issues in the past but it is worth bringing up due to the sanctimonious way this has always been chucked in our faces by them in the past) and at the moment handing the begging bowl around the other SFPL clubs. Not to mention paying compensation to get their new manager! They think that they are...

    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.

    f**k em.. They laughed when we quite rightly started cutting costs They laughed at uswhen ex England manager was getting linked with them They laughed at us when they were putting in kiddy on bids for Nesbitt They laughed at us for the club and supporters association falling out.. Forgetting their club did the same Well they ain't laughing f**cking now 🤣🤣let's see how this huge fairweather support of theirs reacts to a genuine crisis 😂😂😂 Oh and f**k them again

    The club doesn't give us the forum to discuss and / or criticise the way this forum does. Certainly give money direct to the club but if you want an open forum where you can express your opinion and read the honest opinions of others it's this one. Not sure how much it costs to run a website and a forum but fact is the club had a forum that was censored beyond reason and eventually took it down because they didn't like to read the honest, heartfelt opinions of its customers. Mad used to be good but if you're not in the clique forget it, there are at least...

    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.

    I would be. From what I've heard Graeme has been a credit to himself and the club. I've no idea what the situation is with Kane Hemmings but I'm sure the players were being paid full wages up until the end of June. This is a tremendous gesture from the club which allowed players to make provision for upcoming issues and for the out of contract players to be paid in full. I'd imagine most club simply furloughed wages and that's all the players received. You would hope, given the circumstances, that Hemmings would appreciate that the club has tried it's best in this situation and would be prepared to...

    The twelve deserve to get the backing of supporters. Not an easy thing to accept especially when careers are so short. A Dundee support backing their team is worth a goal. Maybe time now for the defiant support to get their coats on and do the business again.

    Byrne certainly isn’t gash. He was massive part of reason we went on good run at end season. Playing him to his strengths and proper position. It’s also unfair to be slagging these players off when no one knows any the boys circumstances at all. No one knows what’s going on in their life’s. I hope it can all be resolved and everyone comes away happy.

    Walking from my grandparents' house in Kirkton, up the Old Glamis Road then doon the Provie for every single home game with my Grandad. He was the one who took me to Dens from a very young age. I only got the lifty over the turnstiles as he wanted me to experience everything.....he even encouraged me to crawl under a few times haha. My Grandad did all the 'Dad stuff' with me when I was growing up, Dens/haircuts/kicking a ball in the park, he was Dundee daft and a huge influence on me, biggest male influence in my life. He passed in 2007, miss him every day, but memories of...

    This is what happens when you pay average players big salaries, a wage bill that dwarfed 8 other clubs in our league and some in the SPL.... The pros and cons for me, more bad publicity that the club can do without, players in the future maybe not signing for us with regards to this. The pros, get rid of a lot of absolute deadwood, boys that are bleeding our club, dry, yes we signed them on these contracts, but this is a pandemic, no one at our club could have seen coming down the road.... These 8 players probably know they can’t command these type of wages anywhere else,...

    At the moment I don't know which would give me the most amusement, 1 The "Doon" Derby or 2. The first Derby of the new season that we could call the "Up then Doon" Derby Here's hoping.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    • 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.
