    I actually think we’d be better with Mulumbu rather than Morgan as I think he’s better suited to what we need, having said that I’d definitely still take Morgan.

    I thought that was a suggestion, not an expectation?

    All valid points. Feck Messi, not fit to wear the dark blue.

    McCrorie would have been a brilliant signing tbf. Halliday would have been a good shout if it hadn't been for his recent performances. Rossiter might be the most likely but he's made of chocolate (which fits in here nicely)

    If Kamara has signed a PCA I'm not sure why he'd sign for them now then not go, in favour of staying here and then Rangers would give us a cut of any future transfer fee. Does that add up?. Why would Rangers not just leave him here and give us nothing?.

    That sort of stuff happens every day mate. Tabloids and the national broadcaster have been reporting on the Dundee clubs possibly merging when it's purely been forum talk. They are reporting it like it's a breaking story and couldn't care less if it has any breathe of truth behind it. It's just a case of filling column inches and usually as long as the words Rangers or Celtic are involved somewhere the Record and Sun are pleased to run with it.

    Because Steve Martin isn't Bill Colvin?? Honestly, Steve Martin can do whatever Steve Martin wants to do with Steve Martin's shares.

    Merger won't happen for various reasons, however the club in their statement did say this; "nor has it ever been contemplated by the owners of the club." Think everyone on all sides need to stop point scoring for wee things and try and move on (Not saying you are Ross), just fans from 'both' sides, only way everyone moves forward.

    The day we need to man mark Nicky Low, is the day to padlock the gates at Dens.

    Well it's weakened to the extent of JM has got rid or in the process or getting rid of players he deems not good enough for the club. We already had an unbalanced and threadbare side. Obviously he is making moves to strengthen the side (at least one signing expected today) and obviously signing players that aren't just ex Ross County as has been pretty much every player linked to us so far. Got to have faith that he will bring in the right players now to drag us out this mess.

    Big mistake IMO for us to extend Waddells loan deal He should have been back at Dens.In fact he should never have been loaned out.

    How can they steal there own content? The club decided to run it themselves and get the money directly rather than through the society. Nothing worth with what they done

    Could be why Dens road looks like a river every time there's torrential rain. I worked in a shop on the Hilltown from the mid 70's & when they were digging the underpass and it was halted again because they had hit water, an elderly gentleman commented to us in the shop "why are they surprised? It's not called Wellgate & Ladywell etc, for nothing."

    Keyes is playing the long game and has the finances to cover short-term losses. As long as the stadium goes ahead there is no reason to worry about "the end". Nelms is a good friend and business partner of Keyes. Nelms is the trusted man on the ground who oversees their Dundee project. Running a provincial football club is incredibly difficult especially for someone fairly new to the country. While fans might be disillusioned with Nelms and call him a failure I'm pretty sure Keyes will see things differently. We've become the only top flight in the city for the first time in 60 years and re-established ourselves in the league. It's quite possible Keyes thinks Nelms is doing a decent job and doesn't blame him for the various setbacks we've suffered in recent years. There is also the fact that Americans generally see failure as a necessary part of progress while we tend to see failure as terminal and if you fail at something you become labelled "a failure" and are incapable of learning from that and changing for the better.

    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 PATG), being a member or non member of one group, attending club events etc... I'm glad we never voted to keep us fans owned, it was never working, we were a laughing stock of a club. Now we are far more professional, yes results are crap this season, but at least we are in the premiership and able to back our manager with funds each season, far better youth development too. Of course mistakes have been made, but there has been far more positives under FPS. And due to this kind of attitude, I will not renew my membership of DFCSS and I can see why numbers are so low. (I know Islay, isn't speaking on behalf of DFCSS, but why the secrecy of the meeting).

    Why would any Dundee fan want to keep any information from other Dundee fans? Or at least explain if they are unable to.Its a lack of communication that is the problem.Fans are concerned and rightly so.

    I never said I wasn't a member of DFCSS. I'm just not going to make a 400-mile trip for a meeting. Bit silly to take the stance that people who were there shouldn't share the contents of the meeting with the wider fanbase. I'm sure others will be happy to fill us in.

    Now up to over 58 percent of posters (including me) who have voted don't think we can beat Championship side Queen Of The South at Dens. Things have been that bad in the cups the last few years mixed with the worst top flight season in history and I for one will actually be quite surprised if we manage to beat them on Saturday. Pathetic state the club is in really due to mismanagement.

    • 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,
