  1. As good an opportunity as any to fill the Derry up for a Saturday 3pm game after a convincing win like last night's and a few unbeaten now with 2nd still achievable. Get it promoted on this forum and the others.
  2. Best 90 minute performance since the Aberdeen game for me. Look like a team that can dominate just about every team in this division, at home anyway. Strikers aren't going near our 3 at the back when the ball is in the air. Bit of class in midfield, hard working wing backs and a striker who will score if you give him the right ball. Night and day from a lot of the rest of the season where even the wins weren't convincing.
  3. 5/5 for both The better team by a mile last night with good performances all over the park and could have won by a few more Manager deserves massive credit for the Berra signing and the turnaround since the January window closed Keep on going and get 2nd
  4. Do you know if this will be any time soon? We have 11 games left.
  5. "Sales will run until the 2nd of May. Further details of sales will be released in due course" I guess we're waiting to see what division we end up in before deciding how much to bump the prices up after May the 2nd.
  6. That's the most one sided thing I've seen since last nights home performance 😉 Did Bomber bring back Harkins or did Barry get him before he was punted? Simonsen was a decent signing too as you said. All I will say is, Bomber made more of a fist of trying to keep us in the top flight when he was brought in than McCann and McIntyre combined and he also played a big part in our Championship season assembling the squad and putting a big chunk of the points on board.
  7. Agree with all of that. Created barrow loads of chances but with 4 centre backs and one recognised striker in the team, we can't exactly be surprised at the 0-0. A lot of hesitance in the build up too as we had all the possession and some of the crossing was absolutely abysmal from McDaid, Dorrans and Elliot although McDaid put in a much better one near the end.
  8. Didn't know last nights was a Dundonian. About time we got a home ref! Should sign him up for next season. Position - home ref
  9. I always thought he got great backing at the games as manager. Had a chant for him and everything and the players, manager and support were as one for the most of it with a connection due to the commitment on the pitch. Was a section of support online that could never take to him from day one simply because he had a rant outside Ibrox about saving them, nearly 30 years after he left Dens and a couple of years before he returned to Dens.
  10. Standards and expectations were a bit higher then with the owners and fanbase despite struggling for the previous 8 seasons. The hopes and expectations never slipped. Now, we lap up any old dross and make excuses for it until the cows come home. Battling relegation two seasons in a row despite the 6th highest budget in the league. Being relegated on the third season with the worst top flight season in the clubs entire history with a similar budget. Stuttering from 3rd to 6th all season in the second tier with the second highest budget in the league. It's all become excused and acceptable to too many as the ambitions are lowered and lowered season on season. We're now walking away from 0-0s with Alloa at home feeling good because the performance was there despite slipping further behind Inverness. Maybe one day this club will deliver again for the first time in 5 years instead of worsening season on season.
  11. Do you think the two we have is adequate then? I don't. Where's the options from the bench tonight? Happens if Nelson got an injury tonight? Gowser lone striker?
  12. That's true. I've never thought hes good enough. Dining out on a couple of good goals a year ago and looked miles short tonight with his all round play. Gives you closing down and commitment but not enough quality for me and yes, I'm aware we're Scottish championship.
  13. Mate, if you're expecting universal happy clapping after a 0-0 at home to Alloa, you're at the wrong club. Decent performance but the managers failure to replace Johnson in the window didnt look too clever tonight with the main man out. As predicted by most.
  14. Poor enough having the not good enough Nelson and the brilliant but not a striker McGowan up front with a combined height of about 11 foot, but Nelson takes a knock then what? Shambolic situation that was called end of January and may have cost us 2 points tonight. Sign an emergency striker ffs. A month late.
  15. Cant complain tonight tbh. Created tonnes of chances but started with 4 centre backs and one striker who's just a sh1te hot head tbh that's done nothing to earn the backing he gets from our support this season, so no real surprise we couldnt score. If only someone could have predicted we'd be miles short the minute Hemmings was out (everyone but McPake)
  16. Markthedee any idea when this is likely to be rescheduled for? Any chance of a Saturday, Scottish cup weekend?
  17. Stranraer the only other game in the country off right enough. Clearly a drainage problem this season as it's only rained one day out the last 5 and is pretty much almost bone dry out there and not a drop forecast until night time. Really frustrating one as cant beat a Saturday 3pm and midweek just not the same unless a cup game or derby. Arbroath fans must be completely baffled why we're off today.
  18. BBC forecast dry with sunny spells and breezy all day until 8pm. Amateur hour. Think Stannraer's the only other game off in the country. Joke of a club just now.
  19. Less than 20 people have it in Britain so far. Out of 66 million. The media live 24/7 coverage stirring up panic and fear has been a disgrace really.
  20. Think it was at least 6 at HT anyway. Was in a full Bobby Cox stand that night (sure it was a Sunday night game) as most ST holders sat there during it's first season instead of the Derry and the atmosphere on the HT whistle was toxic. Boys having full on meltdowns as they stormed out the stand and big arguments between some Dees. Jocky was getting it tight and responded with a twos up to the home support. Some things never change 😂
  21. Can see both sides of that debate. I've never been one that dwells on that decision unlike most Dees. Burchill was a decent option that season too that played a part in our good season. On the other side though, anyone who had seen Novo in his first season knew he was an explosive lightning fast threat of a talent and would only get better so looking up his stats which comes back with 6 goals that first season doesn't really give you the full picture. He was a firm fans favourite and hero from his debut onwards despite scoring 4 times as many goals in his second season than his first. edited to add - your stats are wrong anyway having looked them up. 9 goals in his first season in all comps 25 in his second.
  22. Got roughly half a million for him did we not? Admittedly he was worth about double that even back then but we signed him for only 100 grand or a bit more so not the worst bit of business considering some of the players we've got a lot less for over the years.
