    2 years today. We made them cry. If you've not been following, notable events since last year's Dooniversary include... Every bookie and their dog tipping them to win the poorest Championship in living memory. An open top bus booked following a bonus point earned at Dens in the cup only to immediately be informed they had to play us again in the next round. Losing to us in the next round. Gowzer provoking a lot of slavers from the knitting section. Out the title race by February. Failing to defend the Irn Bru trophy, being knocked out by Irish pub side Crusaders. 6 from Falkirk, 3 from Queens (twice), 3...

    If our club is to make progress then this kind of Sh!t needs to stop, everyone's entitled to an opinion but calling for the managers head after every single defeat isn't doing anyone any good. We're all hurting and the last three results have been particularly painful. Some of the comments aimed, mostly, at the manager though are poorly thought through with no real thought of the consequences and with little or no constructive comments on the way forward post McCann. The same people, I suspect, are saturating Facebook, Twitter and other forms of Social Media with the same bile and it doesn't make good reading. Some people have posted...

    I am going to stick my neck out and also put on my tin hat with this, but John Nelms has come in for a lot of stick recently, and I feel IMO that most of this has been down to a lack of connection and communication with the fans, but hey can you fault the way he and FPS have handled the Manager change, I am really happy that he has done the full process very, very well, and (also in my opinion) he has done exactly the right thing in giving the gig to an inspirational man like Jazza, who knows the club and the fans so well,...

    Hi guys, Basically the page started in 2010 started out as a page against the 25 point deduction in the Deefiant season. The idea just came to me during the night and since then it has grown and grown to just under 10,000 members on Facebook. We are a group of 5 that are Dundee daft ! And we just want Dundee to be as big as possible, and one excellent way of promoting the Dee is through social media. We have had meetings with Scott Gardiner etc in the past and John Nelms, and everyone is fully behind the idea. Rather than just calling ourselves after our facebook page...

    New stadium being planned New training ground being planned Stable and ambitious owners Young, ambitious manager Young, talented and improving squad Fourth consecutive season of top flight fitba Home grown first team talent Expanded youth academy Dabs on the brink of oblivion I’m going to stop moaning about the prices for a bit... The only way we can make sure this all work is to get behind the club financially and support them from the stands whenever and wherever we can. Incredible to think where we were only a few short years ago. Firhill for thrills on Saturday.. Mon the fucking...

    I’ve been trying to get my head round John Nelms’ programme notes from Saturday. I’ve posted a few comments here, on twitter and on facebook where I’ve been extremely critical. I’ve even questioned his sanity. But I don’t dislike John Nelms or what he and Tim Keyes have done for Dundee FC since they became involved with our club. I think we have a huge amount to be grateful to them for, although I think many of the decisions made since they arrived have been, and continue to be, flawed. However, I think there’s always going to be a fundamental disconnect that exists between incomers and those who have been...

    About a month ago I got quite down about Dundee's terrible form, possibly partly as a result of a heavy session and certainly because of yet another defeat. My missus asked me why I go if it gets to me that much. My answer was I would have stopped years ago if I didn't care. Happily I'm feeling much more circumspect about our team now and am actually looking forward to next season in the championship. It's been a horrific season on the park and I'll be glad when it's finished however I'm a Dundee fanatic and have been since I was 5 years old (although I didn't go until...

    Hi Spurs fan here. Just wanted to come on and offer my condolences to a Dundee and Spurs legend and thank you for producing such a magnificent player. I was privileged enough to have seen the magnificent Gilly play live and on TV in the early 1970s an on DVDs of our cup finals and league matches of the era. The partnerships he had with Greaves and subsequently Chivers were an absolute joy to behold and there can't have ever been many better headers of a ball in football. We used to sing 'Gilzean, Gilzean...born is the King of White Hart Lane' and he earned and deserved that accolade. The...

    https://provieroadpod.com/2018/09/24/editorial-mccann-must-go/ Football, the old cliché goes, is a results business. Long gone are the days where a struggling manager is given months, never mind years, to turn around a team and remake it in his own image. While some will mourn the loss of the conditions which allowed Alex Ferguson to become a Manchester United legend, others will rightly recognise that the game has changed immeasurably since the 1990s, when a certain diminutive winger scored a cheeky lob-cum-cross to keep Dundee Football Club afloat. The Bosman ruling has shifted the balance of power within the dressing room towards the squad; the advent of social media has made it more difficult...

    When I opened this forum three years ago, it was because the forum I used to frequent became a cesspool of hate, personal attacks and in-fighting and I swore that I would not let that happen here. My attitude is and always has been to allow people on the forum to express their feelings regarding the club, team and players without it getting on a personal level with personal attacks on other members. I was criticised for probably being too harsh at times and being too rigid with the community guidelines and I relaxed on a few of these. I now know that this has been a mistake. Over the...

    Greetings. I registered on here just so I could comment on this. Tromsø fans loved Sofien Moussa. He was a great guy. He was a fighter, a 110% effort guy, and he was tough, he squared up to anyone and was not afraid to dish it out. He's dirty, he works hard, he wins every single header, and he stamps on people shins. We absolutely loved the guy. Unfortunately he had a training ground bustup with a ladyhandbag-wearing nancy named Wangberg, who was the Manager's lovechild. Said man has since been sacked by the club for failing to get results, and we've only just replaced him with Simo Valakari who...

    Everyone on this board has a passion for Dundee, the next 5 games needs everyone to pull together, go to the games support each other and support your team. I have not lived in Dundee for more than 25 years, lived out of the country for over 18 years and yet the first thing I think about when I wake up is -what is happening with Dundee? I am typing this in just before I go to sleep. Dundee is in my blood, I care . Supporting Dundee is like life, not everything is good all of the time, there are ups and downs. But the joy of a win,...

    Since coming into the club in 2013 the American has now had to appoint, quite staggeringly, three managers, what with John Brown capitulating with the promotion finishing line in sight, Paul Hartley admitting he had run out of ideas as his team stared relegation in the face and now, the unbelievably convoluted removal of Neil McCann. Arriving after Hartley blurted out that he’d tried everything he knew as he failed to turn round the fortunes of his ailing squad, the tenure of Neil McCann went from the third coming of the Messiah, to that of a manager constantly being ridiculed by former players. The cowardly smirking of Celtic reserve goalkeeper...

    Hi guys, its been a while while since I’ve offered you our warm wishes from CPFC in south London. It’s great to see our two clubs working so well together again. ryan Iness has had a chequered career so far mainly due to off the pitch issues. However, I saw him play at Swansea on Tuesday night and think given a run of games, should serve you well this season. dont forget, because of all of our mutual love of Mr Speroni, Dundee have 100’s of cockney Palace fans, and we all wish you guys a great season. ( the first Scottish result I look for)

    I've had a chance to try and look a bit more into this guy and find out what I can. In a bit of information bias in trying to find the good stuff about him out, he seems to have some search results that implies that he was well thought of at Tromsø in 2016 with his ability to create many chances for others and a strike rate of 0.25. Both Norway and his most recent league in Bulgaria rank above Scotland in the European league coefficient (and would probably hump our usual crop of qualified teams) so I wouldn't really put this on par with a punt from a...

    I am really not getting the negativity about Goodwin. I've seen folk saying on here and in general it's uninspired, poor appointment, lack of experience etc. What are they expecting? Keep hearing and seeing Strachan's name pop up (since his Scotland sacking), the foreign route, coming from a certain level. Strachan has repeatedly stated he has no interest in getting back into management, and he would probably command at least 500k per year for a full time position in any case never mind managing a Scottish Championship club. I know its been touted he could come in a as technical director (absolutely great if it happens btw) or whatever but...

    McCann has mentioned a few things. At 11.59pm the deal was done. For a club record. We couldn't really say no. Scott Allan got his agent to text McCann and wanted to leave. Why would we want him here? Scott Bain was never playing for us again and we managed to get rid of him and get a fee. Is that not good business? We have recalled a player to loan him out again? So how can we call Celtic for doing it with Allan? McCann wanted Murray. For a while. Not a panic loan and Murray himself is baffled why he has been loaned out. He will be wanted...

    I was trying to refrain from commenting on this topic as it can create more questions that can't always be answered due to the fact some information is between the club and the customer. However I would like to point out no-one was evicted (they don't live in the Directors' Box), they were asked to moderate their language and if they could not do this then we would appreciate it if they could leave. The language used by the person in question was in breach of not only our hospitality rules but also our ground regulations, both of these can be found at the following links: https://dundeefc.co.uk/club/policies-practices/ground-regulations/ https://dundeefc.co.uk/club/policies-practices/hospitality-regulations/ As stated...

    Only Dundee FC could reemploy someone who tried to have the club closed down Fans who could ill afford it put in hundreds/thousands to try to save the club only for this a***hole to try to scupper these attempts. I remember working my day off for months so I could afford to do my bit. The wee prick shouldn’t be allowed through the door never mind be an employee again. Totally disgusting decision.

    As above, the talk was about contracts, formations, bad referees, scouting, dens boo boys etc etc. The “last question” was about Gowser being front page news and NM skirted around it before adding that he didn’t want to end the evening on a downer. An elderly gentleman then stood up and said “Thanks for getting rid of Holt”. This was met with a ripple of applause from the audience. Bang out of order imo. NM said he wasn’t having this and defended Holt, citing his work rate in training and this was met with a larger round of applause. He reminded the older gentleman about Holts winner against Hamilton. The...

    Got a call at 9.30pm last night from Motherwell to say that my daughter Molly has been selected to announce the Dundee team over the tannoy today, she is so excited! But gonna be a busy day, leave Abernethy at 9.30am to get to Forfar where she is playing for Letham Girls under 12s, 11am kick off, so she will only manage to play first half, then a change into her Dee strip in the car en-route to Motherwell, got to be there for 2pm! Phew. CMON THE DEES! ?

    This kind of attitude is why fans owned will never work for us, ever. Too many people, with a 'blazer/childish' attitude, 'your not part of the group so I'm not telling you'. When will people realise, we are ALL Dundee fans, whether you live in Dundee, London, New York, Sydney, Wick, wherever! We are all Dundee fans, no one is more important or less important. If you are part of DSA or DFCSS, it doesn't matter one little bit. We have all equally saved our club twice, we have all put money into the club through various means, writing cheques to keep us going, going to home matches (ST or...

    Even during a season that's struggled for many highs, I find some of the opinions humbly accepting or even encouraging the logic behind an amalgamation to be the most depressing thing DFC related I've encountered all year. I respect those opinions and in ways understand the logic behind them, but I honestly see anyone wanting to or willing to accept anything other than Dundee Football Club, on the grounds that the nameless, faceless thing we'd be left with would have the off chance of pushing for top six every season, to be akin to the glory hunters following the ugly sisters. Would I cash in the emotion, passion, history, good...

    I’m convinced of it.. We’ve lost that game but the result today was freakish in the extreme. It was a joy to watch that young Dundee midfield completely dominate a Premiership team on their own patch. We have lots to be excited about with these young lads coming of age in our first team - Hendry, Spence, Kamara, Curran, Kerr & Waddell are all superb prospects and more than capable of holding down a place in our team by the looks of it. Meekings is looking very good on his way back from serious injury and I still believe there is a lot more to come from both Deacon and...

    Honestly you two are absolute doom and gloom merchants. Have never actually seen either of you say anything positive about the club. We know absolutely nothing about the Goodwin situation other than pure press speculation. And straight away the “Legion of Gloom” are on it with nonsense like our contract offer was crap and we are about to appoint a novice as manager despite 100 applications. In recent seasons the press haven’t had a clue about our dealings and that could easily be the case here. And hey see if it’s not then fair enough, if for whatever reason Jim Goodwin doesn’t wish to take the job we wish him...

    I was bloody furious when the board went up and saw the 6 minutes added time, as the first thing that came to mind was that Madden thought Celtic needed more time to score. I don't blame Woods for the goal, because if the normal stoppage time had been given He and the other players wouldn't have been on the park for that to happen. You could see how hurt Woods was after they scored and I thought the whole team played well together as a unit, yes it wasn't a brilliant game but I feel that the players played McIntyre's whole game plan which was to sit deep and...

    He came out of retirement to play for us when we needed help. First time round, he went to Hearts so we received a fee rather than taking a bigger offer from an Austrian club (Sturm Graz I think). United were also in for him but he refused to go there out of respect for Dundee. The guy's done more for the club than most players we've had over the years. Fair enough, it didn't work out for him as manager but there's no justification for calling him names and saying he tried to kill the club. None.

    My uncontrolable seethe and dread is subsiding a little. Going by his words on the radio tonight, it seems highly unlikely that the rat will be returning to Dens in any capacity. One positive from this debacle so far - it’s reminded me that we can do brilliant things when we pull together. Time to get right behind the new manager and the boys tomorrow. Massive game. Come on the Dee ️

    f**cking hell, less than a few minutes in and he 'sounds terrible' and is an 'uninspiring signing'! Let's just give the boy a chance, plenty of really class players have come out of that level and we've also signed plenty of overrated crap on high wages that were inspirational signings at the time.

    For people of my age, (55), this is it Born a week after the European Cup Semi, too young to fully appreciate the decent side of the 60's to mid 70's. Not allowed to go to the only major trophy we have won in my lifetime, (weather, too young, etc ) Sucked up the agonising goal difference relegation in 76 that was a huge turning point for all 3 clubs involved, (Aberdeen, us, DABS), to our detriment. Watched in disbelief as teams like St Mirren, Clydebank improved past us to keep us down, then the frustration of the yo-yo years, the unbelievable highs of the Bonetti era and the devastation...

    Have you been taking mind-altering drugs today mate? That lower league club across the street are a fucking joke. They sold their star players before a major cup final to the team they were playing in the final. They've been a laughing stock ever since with their chairman desperately trying to escape. They've been haemorrhaging cash on a monthly basis and begging for handouts from rich fans to stop them going under. They were relegated by Dundee at Dens, yes relegated by Dundee at Dens, and we've been laughing ever since. In the ascendancy because they beat Falkirk? The same Falkirk that shipped four to the mighty Queen of the...

    C'mon Jazza & Jimmy Nic!!!. Let's get some Feckin positivity for this pair, forget the past and move forward. Jimmy and the support network can make the big calls behind the scenes and Jazza can pick up experience along the way and be the motivational face on the front line. Goodwin, Robertson, Robbie Feckin Neilson can Feck off, McPake's the man now and gets my full support. Thoughts of season tickets are flooding my brain. Best of luck to all the new appointments.

    I went to my first game watching the Dees in early 1970’s to watch them play East Fife in a Scottish cup tie in Methil. We won 1-0 with a first minute goal which we did not see because of the crowd getting in. Over these years I have seen them win the league cup, been promoted and relegated more times that I would care to recall. I have seen two admins and the club still goes on and is in my blood. Tonight like all my fellow Dees I am as sick as a dog. I started the season with lots of hope and it’s gone down and down...

    Been on a bit of a self inflicted hiatus from posting. However couldnt let the 20th anniversary of Dariusz thumping an injury time equaliser past Dykstra pass without a mention. Wonderful wing play from Ando, great knock back from Falconer and some suspect keeping from big Sieb. One of my favourite Moments as a younger dee. Absolute scenes after that goal. The sort of moment that probably still gives Jim Thompson nightmares. Maybe I’m just getting misty eyed but football was just better in those days. the pole

Lose just about every game we play at Dens. Managers top flight win percentage must be up there with the lowest in our entire history. The board can't be happy with this sh1te that's being served up? How about they do something about it and hire a proper experienced manager that knows what he's doing? It's their job. Are they just going to sit back and watch this?

    • 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.

      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.

    • 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.
