    O'Dea was sent for an early bath in the opening stages our 3-2 defeat at the hands of St Mirren with the defender even joking he wanted to 'do a Zidane' and go out in style. The former Republic of Ireland centre-back had called time on his professional football career a few weeks back and announced he would be taking on the role as coach of Motherwell’s under-18s. Yesterday’s defeat at Dens Park would be his last match but unfortunately it would not end on a high for O’Dea. The defender lasted just 19 minutes before he was shown a straight red card for hauling down Brad Lyons after the...

    Despite sending out a strong team against the part-time League Two club, the players failed to reward the fans with a moral boosting victory after last weeks Derby defeat, much to the annoyance of manager James McPake. “It doesn’t matter who you are playing against because that second-half performance is nowhere near acceptable for a club of this size,” said McPake. “It was another level of performance that was really poor, to be honest. “You ask for a reaction and you’re looking for one, but we didn’t get it. “There was no complacency as you saw by our team selection. We went very strong and it just was not good...

    Just under two-weeks ago, the club announced that sales had topped 3100 but it would seem since the signing of Kane Hemmings last week, it has sold fans who were maybe sitting on the fence to purchase a season ticket with supporters and even the official club shop Twitter account reporting the ticket office being busy constantly throughout the last few days. Even on the day of our first home match of the Championship on Saturday, the queue for tickets was standing well outside the door from midday up until kick-off. The last day to purchase a season ticket at the 'Early Bird' price ends tomorrow at the close of...

    Although born in Canada, Jimmy Nicholl made 73 appearances for Northern Ireland - including being part of their legendary 1982 World Cup campaign, where they beat hosts Spain on the way to the second round - in a distinguished playing career that saw him win honours in both England and Scotland. Rising through the Manchester United academy, Nicholl would go on to make just under 200 appearances for the club from 1974 until his departure in 1982, winning the FA Cup in 1977. Although many could argue that the United sides that Nicholl appeared in underachieved - the teams featuring, amongst many others, home internationalists such as Lou Macari, Joe...

    At the age of 16 James McPake began his professional football career with Livingston FC, although it would be four years later that he would make his debut as a striker in his one and only substitute appearance of the 2003/04 season. The following year James would become a more regular feature in the West Lothian outfit’s first team, ironically scoring his first professional goal against Dundee, as the youngster was converted into a powerful no nonsense defender. Although he was by now a fixture in the Livi squad, James turned down the opportunity to drop a division during the 2005/06 season with loans at either Partick Thistle or Gretna,...

    Unfortunately, those words have not aged well and we continue to make a laughing stock of his promise even under new management. Only taking into account league matches, so far this season we have amassed just a single home win which came back at the start of December when we thrashed Hamilton 4-0. Going a bit further back to season 2017-18, the faithful Dark Blues fans only witnessed six wins at home all season. If we can’t muster up some much-needed wins in our last two home matches against Hamilton and St Mirren, we will have only won seven home matches in two years. That can only be describe as...

    • 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.
