    That home 'crowd' tonight has to send a message to the board?

    I'd just like to say to everyone who can make to get up to the game tonight to support the boys. We'll get to see callachan for the first time and with Mcdaid back we'll see a bit more pace in the side. If you're swithering may you swither towards our ancestral home, the Kilmac stadium at Dens park 💙

    I have been supporting Dundee for over 50 years. That was as embarrassing as - well probably the last time in the Scottish...We've all been here before as dees. I'm old fashioned in thinking that a good team starts from the back. Dundee throughout the years have always had good goalkeepers. Ally Donaldson, Mike Hewitt, Thomson Allan, Rab. Sorry to say, that JH has to go. No confidence - players in the team or fans. Nobody likes to deride their own players but ffs how many c*ck ups is this keeper going to get away with? Get rid. In fairness to McP he can't be blamed for stuff like that...

    Can we play all our games behind closed doors

    I think it's a good point. 66% of our first-team squad (excluding homegrown players) were signed by the manager appointed six months ago. Of the others Todd is apparently a problem and Nelson is stuck on the bench. Hamilton and Meekings are probably only here because we couldn't tear up their contracts. Hartley wanted his guys, McCann wanted his guys, McIntyre wanted his guys and now McPake demands his guys. In Europe you work with the what you've got but here players get paid off or loaned out the minute the new manager decides your face doesn't fit. McGowan is probably grateful for what the club have done for him...

    He hasn't had a chance to show whether he can follow instruction so I can only surmise he isn't putting the work in. Saying that in the media is pretty much hanging the lad out to dry, so it looks like he's done with us. Honestly getting sick of this season after season.

    Seemingly has a lot of off field problems mate. His surname looks like when you accidentally leaned on the keyboard.

    As Attilio says, you hear some pretty unpalatable stuff shouted at Dens and from Dundee fans at away grounds from time to time. There's an element of glass houses here. Plenty posters willing to use this incidence to take a cheap shot at our rivals while conveniently forgetting we're not immune to similar behaviour.

    Hartley had more money thrown at him than the last 6 previous managers.

    Getting slightly worried that we are going to have another terrible January transfer window. Ross Callaghan would be a decent enough addition if we needed another centre mid signed. However, we already have more than enough cover in there and it is the position we have invested most money in already (Dorrans and Byrne will not be here cheap). All the Callaghan signing will do is leave some of our better players on the bench, or worse trying to force them onto the wing where they are ineffective. Todd for some reason McPake does not fancy. We don't know what happens behind the scenes but based on his brief appearances,...

    John Barlow I think should be John Barbour who's picture is in Dundee fc (images of sport book ) by Paul Lunney. Barbour was an inside forward and made 18 league and cup appearances in the1913/14 season and scored two goals.

    I think for me,when mcpake signed Forster and said he knew exactly what he brought to the club,I thought fair enough as mcpake was a centre half.On seeing Forster, I think that answered a lot of questions I had about mcpake and none of them were good.And it goes on...

    And just how are we doing in the championship exactly? This not only about tonight this is about the season as whole. McPake is not good enough it's as simple as that.

    Based on past appointments I’d expect Vince Mennie to be given his first chance in management

    Mcpake is still there so a bit pointless this. I'll back Mcpake until/if we don't make the playoffs. Turning over managers every 6 months makes us a joke of a club.

    I got mine for £15 which I think is very reasonable considering the usual prices to watch live football. Does anyone know how much we get from the BBC btw?
  24. 2 points
    I agree with some posters that the £15 was ok value.... My biggest gripe is putting the price up a fiver if you didn’t have the cash flow to purchase a ticket early... Especially in January.... Crazy.

    I don't feel Todd was afforded the opportunities to play a significant run of consecutive games like other players. The fact that Mackie will probably start again tonight about sums the situation up for me. JMcP seemed to look at Todd after one game or more likely a 20 minute cameo appearance and make his mind up from that. What looked like a decent squad at the start of the season doesn't look that clever to me now. Personally, I will take a lot from tonight's game in terms of morale at the club. We should be expecting a fighting performance from more than McGowan and Kerr so another ICT...

    Good point Rev. I get the impression I've seen plenty of him but seen nothing at the same time. That speaks volumes to me.

    I took my American girlfriend at the time to her first football match at WHL. It was an FA Cup match between Spurs and Man City. Spurs raced into a 3-0 lead. City's one class player Anelka got injured after half an hour and then Barton was sent off on the stroke of half-time. I said at the break that Spurs are the Dundee of England. They will find a way to stress their fans out even in this situation. I didn't think that 10-man City might score 4 unanswered goals though but that's what happened. It was almost comical the way City scored an injury-time winner and there was...

    Your earlier comments were not to my liking, especially as I received the badge as a gift. However, discussion is always good as long as it is honest and constructive. Thanks to this Forum, I have obtained valuable information about the Players in question. A valuable exercise and perhaps a small way to keep their memory alive. We both agree on that, and that’s all that matters.

    Communications and consultation are both required. They are different things and in my experience if you consult with customers then comms is easy and appreciated.

    Now that is a quandary. What was best the 1st 45mins or the 2nd 45mins.

    On paper, that is more than a decent squad/team. As I have always said, a good manager will get the best out of mediocre players, but a bad manager will never get the best out of quality players.

    William you've appeared out of nowhere and slated the club over multiple posts then got offended when a poster accused you of being a DAB. For what it's worth I defended you privately but I'm beginning to wonder as your doing yourself no favours mate.

    Yeah I agree to an extent Harry and I didn't think you had agenda mate. I'm possibly being defensive of this decision as I feel that there's too many things going on that JMcP is being tried for. Looking at the Todd situation in isolation it's not like the manager has been regularly denying players first team football and forcing them out the door, Todd is one of two players who've performed well below their capabilities and I believe that's why they haven't been mainstays of our side. Both of these players have performed to a decent standard before but have failed to adapt to what's being asked of them...

    Perhaps we (and them themselves) aren't as strict diet wise. Tiny things make massive differences.

    No sure there's anything sinister in this to be honest. Don't know why Dundee would release pictures of a saturated pitch if they really believed the game should've went ahead.

    • 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.

    • 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.
