    Hahah - went to Somerset park earlier in season - bought ticket on way down - straight to phone - scanned at gate - quicker than paying at gate no need for cash - quicker than handing over ticket etc . If Ayr can do it I’m sure we could

    My suggestion is more to do with atmosphere and aesthetics of the stadium, in the south enclosure we should knock down the wooden shed things🤷🏻‍♂️ and put in a couple of hundred rail seating/safe standing .This seating is already in place at Celtic and more recently Kilmarnock. This was always a popular area to stand when it had the benches in place and looks a tad shabby in its current set up. A lick of paint around the ‘Derry walls’ and a general tidy up for next seasons SPL campaign! Tin hat on.

    Good suggestion that the SE should be (noticeably) cheaper....it's got the poorest facilities & seating....but it also makes sense to find a way to encourage younger fans (maybe even up to mid 20's?) to go there, and regenerate the 'noisy/singing' section that has been located there at least since my youth in the 60's. It was usually where you expected songs/chants to begin, and spread to the Provie enclosure. Much quieter last couple of seasons, for various reasons debated often on here.

    Making the Derry the cheapest then Coxy then main stand? Giving 13-20 lower prices in the Derry so they can go with their mates.

    Agree with a lot of this. There will be all the information,that we speculate about, available to the club. The financial decisions all have to be made against the background of what is happening on the pitch. I'd think that pricing low to attract more ST holders will be a revenue losing strategy. Getting in the younger supporter seems to me to be dependent on having younger players who are working hard at youth programmes, being available at open days, signing autographs and generally being approachable. Cammy is always held up as a great ambassador for our club. Every player should be encouraged to think what he could do to...

    I think the club need the season ticket money upfront to find out what the budget for the season will be. The problem with direct debits are that they can be cancelled at any time so would people cancel them if we're playing crap?

    How about country membership for fans who live 50+ miles away? Say £20 cheaper or a free ticket to bring a friend?

    To be honest mate I don't think small things like this will impact sales at all. The harsh reality is that we have a core group of fans who will more than likely buy a season ticket regardless - and the only way to increase numbers is by increasing the product on the park. If we are winning then your now and then punters will go more often or possibly buy a ST, but if we are sh!te like we have been for the last few years then punters won't.

    In rugby VAR is used to help the referee make a correct decision. In EPL football it's being used to make the decision for the referee. The rugby use is how the technology available should be applied - the EPL use is an attempt to pacify whinging managers who used to come back and criticise referees for making human errors - it's backfiring big time on the EPL.

    Tickets bought for the show at Whitehall on march 20th and should be a cracker of a night.... Pity some of the current squad don't display half the bottle these lads showed !!

    But would membership not be by DD too?
  19. 1 point
    I know how it works mate but i still think loads of people will cancel if we're playing rubbish. Loads of season tickets holders have been swerving going to Dens this season and that's with it paid in advance. No way would they keep paying a DD for something they won't be using. Debt collectors will be chasing it for years. Think the idea of some type of membership scheme (as well as season ticket money) is a great one. I'd prefer any profits from it be directed back into the club through youth development.

    In all honesty, I think we've got to take a hard look at ourselves and price/budget accordingly to the relative league we're in. I accept that we may be slightly more but I really don't see the justification for being 66% more for a season ticket than another club in this division. If we cut say £50 off what we're charging now, I think we'd be looking at around 400 extra tickets to maybe break even again if +80% tickets we sell are adults. We may not make that margin but the embodied costs in being priced so highly is going to bite us and you do get the sense...

    100% Agree as a short term plan until "something" happens. Such a waste of space that area at the moment!! Those shed things are embarrassing!! If they could put that blasted Fence at the foot of the Derry then surely a few rows of those rail seating things is possible although unlikely!

    Is the main stand not where most of the people with shorter legs go? It was 'the posh fans place', of course, in my youth (& yours!)

    I know Partick fans and Pars fans and they cannot believe the prices for away fans at Dens. Think it was £24 for adult whereas at Palmerston last week it was £18. Big difference.

    What’s better for the club as a business? Big shot of cash from STs at start of season or a regular flow from direct debits throughout the year? My guess would be the latter and picking up on earlier point everyone is so used to monthly subscriptions these days that this is probably the way to go. Those that buy STs will continue to do so by direct debit and you might get a few extras if it’s 30 quid per month as opposed to 360 quid in one go. Local discounts for ST holders or direct debiters would also work I think. Perhaps also some behind the scenes access....

    Maybe you could have the option of either the vouchers or the money off with the country season ticket?

    Probably is. Arab at work uses his brothers student season ticket plus loadsa away grounds it’s not difficult to get in as a concession.

    The amount of people getting into dens with wrong tickets must cost the club a bit of money. The worrying thing is they probably wouldn’t go if they didn’t get in cheaper.

    Money off deals with commercial partners was a good idea for locally based fans like we did under Gardiner. I personally saved a fortune on a variety of things. How about a small share issue included? It would bring the fans closer if they owned a wee piece.

    Good question and I don't know why not if I'm honest. Fear of moving away from traditional season books? Effort involved in moving to a different system? Maybe they don't see a need to move forward with this type of thing. I personally feel that in the modern world where everyone is used to paying monthly subs for things like Netflix, sky, Amazon prime etc football is getting left behind and it possibly excludes people who would like to buy season tickets but the thought of shelling out between £340-380 in one go (nearly a grand for a family of 4!) is enough to avoid it altogether and just pay...

    We need to attract the 18-23 year olds back to Dens, kids who have followed us for years can’t afford to go if they are on minimum wage and being asked to pay top prices.... I don’t think adding gimmicks such as a free cup of tea sells any if I’m honest, plus the early bird just helps more affluent fans with money in there pockets. No easy answers but winning games on a regular basis definitely softens the blow of overpriced football.

    Your attempts at claiming 'ludditeism' by those who don't like/want VAR seem somewhat flawed. The issue - at the moment, and very much in England it seems - is that VAR is not a 'technological solution', it's just a series of slow-motion replays, from different angles, being viewed by a lower level of ref than the one officiating the match. They might as well get the match ref or his 4th official to just watch the pitchside tv monitor, they at least have the benefit of being in the stadium & have a perspective the guy in the VAR studio won't have...not unless they tool up the Ref with a...

    The view part is very much a matter of opinion; mine is that high up in The Coxy and Shankly give better overall views than any part of The Derry and same goes for Main Stand. The atmosphere in The Coxy for big games when we're doing well is better than The Derry too. It was great in there on Championship winning day against Dumbarton.

    • What Would You Change About the Club Right Now?
      If there was one thing you would change about the club which you believe would make a difference, what would it be?

      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.

      St Johnstone 1 - 0 Dundee

    • Dundee Fantasy Game
      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.
