    Considering McPake made resigning Cammy a priority I very much doubt he'll replace him with McGhee. I'd guess that McGhee will play centre back and act as cover at right back if needed.

    He's not a massive name but if we pull this off, it's an incredible signing relative to the level we're at. He come through at Dunfermline and got a chance in the team with their admin but ended up being released a few years ago and Livingston signed him. At the time, he was played as a more attacking midfielder and he seemed to be a lightweight and not really impact a lot on games. There was a wee bit of controversy about his release at the time but most fans agreed it wasn't a huge loss, we were linked with him (we were managed by Hartley) but nothing came...

    Not that I think its a problem position but if we were to play with 3 CB's then I'd be happy to go with 5, or at least have options elsewhere to allow players like Cammy to cover, assuming he has cover. If you follow me.

    Davies turns 35 this year. His career has been blighted by injury. He's not going to be able to play week in week out for Dundee this season so I imagine he'll be quite happy to be a rotation option. He does have impressive leadership qualities and loads of experience so I don't think McPake will want to get rid. Meekings hasn't played a full season since 2014/15 so we'll be lucky to get 20 games out of him as well. I actually think we'll need to add a centre-back myself rather than let one go. I don't think McGhee is a natural at CB and Waddell's form has been...

    Coulda, woulda, shoulda... as soon as you put people in the mix it can get a bit awkward and when most of those people are egotistical young men then its no surprise that it can get a bit volatile. I'm not taking sides, I've no idea what happened and I don't feel the need to jump on a bandwagon and pick a side, it is what it is. I've made life difficult for bosses in the past if I thought they were riding roughshod over the troops, especially for their own ends, it probably doesn't matter what 'industry' you work in, people are people.

    We have seemingly had a 5 figure sum accepted for Shaun Byrne and he has been granted permission to speak to us. the same rag says we are interested in Jordan Marshall of Queen of the south as a replacement for Nathan Ralph.

    Hemmings was a top prospect at Ibrox and ended up moving to Cowdenbeath. Sometimes a good player will take a step back to prove themselves as a regular at a lower level. Shankland left Aberdeen for Ayr and now he's joining Sunderland. I'm not too worried about McGhee going to Falkirk from Hearts. It seems to have been a good move for him.

    It's not uncommon for players to break through at a young age and make a big impression and fall away a bit. Jack Hendry was similar when he came to us he was a stand out but has struggled at Celtic. He has played a lot of games recently at the same level we'll be playing next season so I'm not concerned. Hopefully he can improve under JM and he can kick on and lead is back to the premier league.

    Possibly but still think we needed another centre half anyway, especially who can cover other defensive position. Ecen If Waddell signs up I'd still be looking to sign another centre half if Davies moves on as that would give us 4 with the option of playing 352 at times.

    We learn from our experiences and we learn more from the bad ones, I'm impressed with how we're going, I get that a lot of us want the player rollercoaster to be going a bit faster but if he's signing the known quantities now and looking to unearth a gem with the trialists on the trip to Spain then fine. I'm assuming he'll be taking a punt on at least one or two, its how we've rolled with FPS, happy to find the next Nathan Ralph or Glen Kamara or dare I say it..... (dare, dare) Jack Hendry.... and move them on for some folding stuff.

    Yeah, fantastic effort so far! Just £14,99 short of being able to sponsor a first team player, and well over half way towards the £780 goal.

    Showing my utter lack of Scottish football knowledge these days - I'd never been aware of the lad until today. Hope he turns out to be a great signing.

    JN obviously is having an input on our signing targets, he knows every player in the league worth consideration. Imo this is much more positive than our previous forays into Europe’s nowhere divisions for untested nobody’s.

    If numbers meant anything in football all arabs would have 666 on their jerseys.

      Me, I would change the following: Tannoy's/Speakers in the stadium, those things make my ears bleed every time they announce that the opposition have scored a goal!

    • 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.
