    Hope BCG's mate didn't have to queue too long to see the big team.

    Season Tickets

    Now the dust has settled on Sunday, it has dawned on me that we will be heading in to April at £340 to £385 per home win on this season's season ticket value. I appreciate that not everyone looks at it like that and a lot of people buy regardless of how many games they can make/wins they see to help the club and fair play to them, but this home record this season mixed with an only marginally better one the previous two seasons will be one of the biggest factors mixed in with the early bird periods (months earlier than usual) on what is almost guaranteed to be another drop in season ticket sales this Spring/Summer and could be a significant drop with relegation. Winning our remaining home games would go a long way to restoring a bit of a feel good factor (if we can avoid the drop) and help cushion any drop in sales. How do we do that though when we've only won one home game all season and four league games all season going in to the end of March? You're basically relying on boys who buy regardless, as value for money, there is next to none with our home record and fans are having to pay £340 to £395 or £24 to £30 a game for the privilege.

    The New Stadium Thread

    Islay - this has been bothering me. If you've no plans to park your car at the proposed new car park in the proposed new stadium when it's built, why then are you going to object to the plans and are so strongly against them on here?

    Wouldn't Want It Any Other Way.

    The amount of lows we suffer over the decades just makes the highs all the better when they happen. Owners, managers, players and fortunes come and go but we (the fans) are the football club, consistent decade after decade. The Dundee Derry, The Dees, The Dark Blues. Dundee FC

    The New Stadium Thread

    Cheers mate. I was mistaken thinking there was just a slip road issue to iron out then we were good to go (funding aside). Thanks for the explanation. Got you now. I think they've mentioned recently that there is a funding issue too with the council struggling obviously with their budget cuts. I've been critical of Nelms lately on ticket pricing and falling home crowds but as I said in one of my earlier posts today - I know for a fact that he works tirelessly trying everything to get the stadium project to come together. The dream is for us to stay up and it all to come together. It feels to me like the club is approaching a cross roads moment in its history with this season's relegation battle and the proposed stadium project.

    The New Stadium Thread

    Nobody disagrees with any of that but Nelms originally said we hoped to be in by 2020 which admittedly he revised after a few delays but I'm sure someone (might have been you, might have been Nelms) said that all planning was good to go other than a transport access issue to iron out with transport Scotland. Now you're saying we've still to get over the hurdles of planning permission?
  7. Was just joking. I don't know what the criteria is. What I would say is, long passing can be top drawer rather than negative. There's a difference between kicking the ball as hard and as high as you can aimlessly than picking out a striker with a perfectly weighted defence splitting long ball. Mane's first goal against Bayern last week from an exquisite long pass from Van Dijk is one of the goals of the season. Short passing can be beautiful as can long passing. All about the execution.

    Correct re results. And the results are the result of mismanagement hence why the man in charge of the operation is facing a bit of criticism. As far as I'm lead to believe, Keyes provides the finance and Nelms is left to run the operation. FWIW, I think Nelms is a good guy and definitely has the club's fortunes at heart. He's a Dee now and doesn't miss a game ever. That doesn't make his record over the last two or three seasons a good one. It's been a bit of a disaster as I said in a previous post in a number of areas. One mistake has lead to another then to another and so on IMO. We pay for it with falling crowds, falling on the field results and big big losses paying for both.

    Anyone fancy having a go at this?

    Agree re the 100k point. It's just supposition. But, in what way is he doing a good job? The losses are ridiculous thanks to mismanagement from the top. The stands are emptying season on season whilst the prices rise and rise. If he pulls the stadium off which I know he is working on tirelessly tbf then all will be equalled but at the moment, all I see is disaster after disaster (McCann, Dodds, season ticket prices, season ticket sales, premium category pricing, empty stands etc).
  12. Did you see the incident where Horsfield gave away a throw in at the Main Stand Bobby Cox end but ran 15 yards up with the line with the ball then dropped the ball to buy time but Tierney (I think) just took it where he dropped it in front of the linesman and ref? Play on. Take it wherever you want. Every single week. No control. The players control where throw ins are took. We get pulled up for stealing three yards with one though in the 2nd half as always. Foreign officials now for me. These lot are taking the p1ss and it's every game at Dens.

    Rate the Manager: Celtic (Home, 17th March 2019)

    Can't disagree. Everyone expected us to get thumped today. Season ticket holders couldn't even bring themselves to go. We matched them for 95 minutes thanks to the formation, organisation and tactics. Well done the manager.

    Rate the Manager: Celtic (Home, 17th March 2019)

    That sounds really familiar. Can't think what previous manager that reminds me of

    Knew of several season ticket holders who didn't go either. Never seen it confirmed officially that we do this but it's probably right as it looked more like 3000 home fans today than the announced 4000. Also note there was only 3600 in the Celtic end therefore 600 empty seats in their end which is odd for the Champions elect on St Patrick's day. Looks like it's not just Dundee fans swerving the 30 quid ticket prices.
