    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...

    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 got in from the match on Saturday, totally hacked off, walked into the dining room where my James McPake framed shirt from the season I sponsored his home kit hangs in pride of place, and thought 'f**k you you prick'. I then fumbled in my pocket for my season ticket and thought 'why the f**k did I waste my money on this garbage'? Had a think whilst eating my bridie and beans and actually more or less decided to take the shirt off the wall and file the season ticket under mistake and basically do as I've always promised myself I'd do one fine day and give up completely...

    Pathetic. Pandering to a bunch of morons kicking up a fuss and letting them buy into the theory that this was some kind of anti-Irish agenda. Shitebag behaviour.

    Decent turnout tonight. Everyone there bar Bain. All pretty chatty and photos were no problem. Mark O'Hara further enhanced his recent hero status by telling my young lass that he knew her and that he'd remembered she'd been a mascot at the Motherwell game. She was fairly chuffed.

    Our start to the season has been poor - very poor in all honesty. Despite the disappointing performances and results, McPake has to be given a chance to learn from his mistakes. Regardless of whether he was the right appointment or not, the guy inherited an absolute f’kin mess and he’s only six games into his first ever season in senior football management with an entirely new squad of players. I’m as gutted as the next Dee by the start we’ve made but he has to be given a fair opportunity to get his squad performing in the way he wants. ASAP preferably though please, James.

    That is a bloody minter. A fuss like this over a flag. Where the hell is our apology for the smoke bombs thrown into the Derry early in the season? Where is the apology for the utter embarrassment that took place in the Shankly on Boxing Day 2012? Where is our apology for them being absolute mutants and a stain on Scottish football in general (along with their twins). There no anti “Irish” (90% of them couldn’t point to Eire on a map) agenda. There’s only an agenda against grown adults who act like despicable morons Pandering to them to get 30 quid a head from the hordes. Very well...

    Sick of hearing so much negativity around this game from Dundee fans. Fans moan about the £30 ticket price (quite rightly) but then a lot of fans saying they're not going to go even with their season ticket. That right there is why it's £30. Because fans aren't going even with a free ticket. So on that basis no wonder the club are trying maximise income from this game. Fans threaten not to go if McCann isn't sacked. Fans threaten not to go if Billy Dodds is appointed. The club listen to the fans yet fans are still not willing to go and back their team in numbers. What does...

    Hi Abernethy ' ... (Thanks for the comment above) It's true my posts have been few & far between in the past few weeks/months. Although this has been mainly around personal & private reasons (with certainly a few health issues thrown into the mix) And with the current catastrophic form DFC has been enduring this season, coming on to the forum to lift my spirits or for even get back that wee smile has no been the answer (No surprisingly in these times some, posters are a might "touchy") Meanwhile "Mon the Dee"

    I think the lack of patience is all about United. Last season United started with 11 points from 8 games. We'll have 12 from 8 if we beat Arbroath at Dens next week. Had United had their typical start we'd probably all be chilled. It's not McPake's fault Shankland has managed to score an extraordinary 13 goals in 7 league but we're annoyed that our rookie manager has failed to keep pace with United's blistering start even though no Dee at the start of the season expected us to come flying out the traps. If we can somehow forget about what's happening across the street and focus on DFC we'll...

    I’m not bothered about how it affects me as st holder - I just want more people there to support the team lift the atmosphere and maybe help to ensure premier football next season. If the cost of that is some kids in for free , great .

    That bit of the statement [apparently] relates to US Taxation law, where you can offset any losses from one company against profits from another company, within the same Group. The benefit would be to the DBPH 'parent company' in the USA, whose 'Corporation Tax' liability would be reduced. Where I think this might be of direct benefit to DFC is that the owners would perhaps be more inclined to fund an operating loss (eg, if they had to fund additional spending on players, as just now), if they knew that loss was softened by a tax saving elsewhere within their Group. I can't see DFC producing an operating profit for...

    A while ago a topic started about public welfare and it's abuse. I very wrongly made a comment about depression and ADHD being nonsense conditions. At the time it was suggested by my GP I was depressed and thought I was "above that" and didn't want to acknowledge it. I'll not go into however I want to apologise to anyone I may have offended including to whoever shared with me their personal experience with the illness who I laughed at. That was wholly unacceptable and from the pit of my stomach I am sorry.

    So they ARE awa' tae bide awa'. Forgive this 'Fun'Dee fan for having an unadulterated sense of GIRFUY in the following drivel. Despite finishing 3rd (Third) in the 2nd (Second) tier of Scottish football and, AND, ploughing their way through the Try-To-Get-Out-Of-Jail-Free card that is the play-offs, they find themselves plying their trade as a Championship club next season. Again. Yes, I'm well aware of the unsatisfactory and, at times, very uncomfortable season we've just endured but that has been well-documented by finer men than me and on far superior topics in the Dark Blues forum. Our season, for me, was over on the 16th of May when Ross County...

    Time to step aside and let someone else with half a clue to take over the running of the football side of things. His decision making around the last two managerial appointments has been nothing short of shambolic, and I'm afraid the buck stops with him. We are currently a laughing stock from top to bottom - on the pitch and off. Completely rudderless and devoid of leadership. All at a time when we are supposed to be the "premier" team in the City. We cant even capitalise on the fact United are shyte. Move aside John - by all means remain Mr Keyes man in Dundee, however if we...

    Regardless of what takes place over the coming days and weeks, Neil McCann has somehow got this squad over the line and saved our bacon once again. The man deserves a Dee knighthood. Legend

    Kudos to the Yanks. They made a huge call and it's worked. Happy as f**k tonight. McCann on a perm contract and Falkirk will add to my joy on Friday.

    Scott Bain is something special. Today he has put points on the board and pretty much kept us in the top flight. Best Dee keeper since Speroni and I think he'll be a big loss.

    A couple of those results have helped open a bit of gap from us to 5th & below, always a good thing for team morale. We're keeping pace with the top 3, still only 1-2 games away from them, and if we can keep this going, while the team develops & becomes a bit more settled, I think we'll be well placed for the 'business end' of the season. Long, long, way to go yet.

    Is it a Scottish or Dundee thing just to accept that your sh*t, shut up and get on with it? Personally no thank you. You can be successful, you can plan to succeed, it needs application, determination and a bit of luck. Never ever lie down and accept mediocrity and defeat. This kind of thinking has us where we are.

    Can fk off, with the exception of O'Dea who actually gives a fk and Lambert who tried. The biggest bunch of losers I've ever had the misfortune of watching and an embarrassment to the badge. OTT? Possibly as I'm sure they're all great guys but their efforts the last 3 games and the overwhelming majority of this season are a disgrace.

    McCann's lazy and incompetent recruitment now coming home to roost sadly. May be completely wrong but I highly doubt he saw many of his signings play before signing them for us. I highly doubt he watched many National League, Bulgarian 2nd Division and Norweigan 1st Division matches over the past few seasons before signing Ralph, Madianga, Mendy etc. Constantly putting trust in agencies is a dangerous game. For every Kamara there is hundreds of no hopers on the scrapheap and generally they are there for a reason - they are crap. I'm not writing off any individual player here but if you are building a team of players who have...

    Why would losing Caulker or Kamara tomorrow (now today) be another terrible window?? Dundee would still have another 22 days left in there transfer window to replace them. We could lose them and use some of the money to strengthen the squad in those areas vacated and in other areas which are more pressing. So we could lose them, recall Waddell, promote ODea or Kusunga into the starting defence, sign a player like Lee Wallace for left back, a Greg Stewart or Scott Allan on loan for attacking midfield, an Osman Sow type central midfielder for the defensive midfield position to replace Kamara and Shankland or another centre forward and...

    Didn’t know where to post this but I think this is the perfect place. Yesterday afternoon, I was in The Dundee United club shop, I made sure to not touch anything tangy or that which was a challenge. I was simply paying the fees of my football teams let at the GA, which is actually a decent surface. Anyway, whilst receiving the most horrific customer service known to man. It genuinely was, not just because it was their shop. An Arab was in renewing his ST for his young lad. The lady behind the counter had said to him “we are glad you are renewing but it’s not great at...

    What I would say about this season is that it has been a relatively strong lead and we've generally been almost there quite a lot. A few times, the ball has almost bounced another way or a situation has unfolded in a unique fashion to deny us. If we just get over the line, I think that we're in a great position to have a really great second season with management a year wiser, the time to recruit (seemingly, this is already in full swing) and more maneuverability in the wage bill. Not to mention some very promising youngsters. Managers aren't made in a season. If we accept that the...

    His dad was in front of me and couldn't contain himself when he scored. A great moment and he can now consider himself a professional footballer. It was a brilliant poachers goal and I none of our other forwards have offered that sort of movement yet this season. First of many I feel.

    Hi Palace fan here, so glad Speroni gets his dream testimonial match. I was at his Testimonial event this evening and he couldn't speak highly enough of his time at Dundee and is really excited for the match. It was also mentioned that your youth coach flew down today met the testimonial team just to hand them a Dundee shirt so he could announce it and flew back straight away. So massive thanks to him and your chairman who has apparently been top class in organising it. We asked for a 2 legged match and for us to return to your ground at the event tonight, there was massive demand...

    Don't quite get the criticism that McDaid gets, he's no world beater but works his socks off. His pace is an asset and he uses it well at times to drive us forward, I remember him having a couple of great runs in the second half. He also took the ball off the Alloa attackers toes when he was 1 on 1 with keeper which showed great effort and desire to get back and help us protect a slender lead when he could've left it to those who are charged primarily with defensive duties. I've also read a lot of comments which state that McDaid is nothing but a Championship...

    Good posts here tonight but let’s not completely throw in the towel. Owners and players come and go. This club , isn’t going anywhere and will be here long after we take out places in the high stand. There will be new heroes. There will be better days. There will be a trophy at some point . I agree dens is not a happy place to be just now but once we start to win again , it’ll improve. All will be welcome whether lapsed or long term supporters. It is our Dundee fc , not Tim Keyes

    What struck me today was just how poor the 'more established' members of our squad were. Cammy was exposed time and again, ball chasing, poor decision making, shocking distribution. Kusunga was OK, but still looks poor in the tackle and on the verge of disaster every time he goes near the ball. Inniss was, well, hmmm. At moments he looks strong, assured and confident, then he takes a touch that sends the ball 30 feet in the air! The lad's distribution is awful unless it's a 5 yard pass and when he's forced to go long it's just shut your eyes and put your foot through the ball stuff. Oh...

    What? Hes 21, hasn't really lived up to the hype and has still just moved for a fee to one of the biggest clubs in Scotland alongside more than likely at least doubling his wage. If I was a youth, I'd be wanting some of that.

    Sad Day for me. Brings back memories of selling previous starlets in their youth ... McKimmie, Fergie, McKinlay, McCann etc ( not looking for an arguement re talent, or the stage they were at in their career, just saying how it feels to me ). Will be very interesting to see what Levein can do for him. Thanks for ‘The Memory’ Craig Hope you go on to have a Great Career and reach the Top.

    23 appearances for the team that finished third last year and he is finished? For those of us who went to ibrox for our last fixture, I saw I guy who will very likely be an asset with goals and assists to young Ben. I’ve typed and retyped this post but tbh I’ve deleted the rest of it as I’m lost for words in relation to the negativity directed at Miller and NM on this thread.

    Really? I find that particular comment to be utter nonsense. Last season Haber was, quite correctly IMO, being heralded by many pundits as one of the best target men in the league. He bothers the life out of CHs, and can win headers without giving away too many fouls. He also stands his ground for position against defenders in good areas for us. He's miles ahead of Cummins. Haber also scored almost as many goals in 2/3 of a season than Cummins has in 2 seasons. Arguably in a much worse side. Dundee fans are an absolute nightmare. Greg Stewart was getting the same type of nonsense levelled at him...

    I find it a bit unreasonable to throw our failures at Nelms. The guy has worked very hard to give Hartley all the tools necessary to do his job and backed up a guy who has generally been held in good regard at our level. Things have started to unravel but we don't know what he's saying to Keys who is the guy that will be making the decision. It's easy to play Football Manager and share our consensus as gospel but at the end of the day, it's quite a major call to make either way and their own finances are at stake. They'll be taking it seriously. Don't...

    • 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...

    • 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.
