    Kamara (Again)

    I'm sure Glen when putting in half arsed performances against the likes of Livi in the clubs worst top flight season in its history whilst being tapped up from Gerrard and Rangers wasnt overly giving two hoots what posters on an unofficial fans forum were posting about him. He had a poor final half season for us and wasnt suited to a full blooded relegation battle. He's seemingly done well for Rangers. We move on. Last season was a disaster he was a part of.

    McPake Must Go.

    Fair doos mate. We all react differently from it. Time to move on I think.

    McPake Must Go.

    I can see the other side of the argument too though and a strong 2nd place finish will be an ok season (not some great achievement we should be shouting about. We were a mid table Premiership club three seasons ago). Lets just hope the manager and players can restore a bit of pride in the next two derbies by giving them a much closer game and a lot more to think about as a starting point. 8-2 from two derbies with a performance like that last one is an insult.

    McPake Must Go.

    Great post and this bit is bang on. We all know and concede that United are the favourites to win the league ever since signing Shankland. That doesn't mean we accept as a support and a club rolling over to them in 4 derbies and giving them 12 easy points. They are the best team in this league and will almost definitely win it I think, but they aren't invincible as Alloa, Ayr and QOTS have shown. Even if we concede they will finish first, you still have pride to play for in a home derby in front of a sell out crowd and apart from matching them for effort first half (where they still shaded the play), our players simply didn't offer anywhere remotely near enough what they should have for a fixture of that magnitude and a lot of that was down to the manager with his tactics and subs. To have your first shot on goal being a passback to their keeper round about the 70 minute mark is an insult to the 7000 Dundee fans who turned out for a TV game to back our club despite the previous derby hammering. The derbies mean everything and to state fook them and they don't is just kidding yourself on regardless if you think Dundee will finish 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th or worse. Here's hoping for a reaction but it's going to be a frustrating painful season I think with a rookie manager in charge learning the ropes and making mistakes throughout the journey.

    McPake Must Go.

    It's not the be all and end all but the fact is, we're attempting to challenge them for the title and have so far failed miserably to do so , mainly down to the two defeats against them. It's the manner of the defeats too. Have seen us lose 1-0 over the road in the league cup from a late goal against 10 men under Hartley where Boyle ran them ragged that night and the whole Dundee support stayed behind and sang and applauded them off the park as they deserved it. Compare that to the last two derbies. Not really. He hit his best spell of the season with three wins on the bounce (two against teams we should be beating every day of the week with our players) and before that, there hadn't been much to shout about or any consistency.

    McPake Must Go.

    I'm not sure that's much of an achievement. Looking for us to compete in derbies with that team we have on paper and not weaken with each sub week in week out as a minimum.

    McPake Must Go.

    He lost my patience second half Friday night. A humiliating home defeat with baffling subs in front of a sold out home crowd that deserved better after the previous humiliation. It's only mid November and so far McPake has - Lost two derbies convincingly. Has us 9 points off the top and rising. Has failed to beat Cove, Peterhead, Elgin and bottom of the table Partick Thistle plus a few others on top of that. Has a court case hanging over him until February (Not saying he's guilty or whatever, but it must be affecting him massively as a person). Post match interview on Friday was apparently awful. Should never have got the job in the first place as many others have said. Cheap easy option again like McCann but the club and it's fans will pay for it again. 5 seasons we've went back the way under 4 different managers. It's all good and well having Strachan, Dorrans and Hemmings etc at Dens, but if you're putting a youth coach in the top seat with no previous experience learning the ropes, it's highly unlikely he will have what's required for at least a few seasons. Makes no sense to me the board have backed the club really well but can't hire a proper manager that can do the job.

    The Title

    About the same chance as McPake winning a derby this season as manager (next to none)

    McPake Must Go.

    Only post since Friday. McPake out on that second half alone. Shameful performance for a home derby. Baffling subs. Well played John Nelms. Three awful appointments in a row and the club going backwards season on season for 5 seasons.

    Things have went quiet since the tickets sold out. What does everyone think for line up? Unchanged? Mackie in for Nelson? Ness in for Nelson? Would surely be one of those three and no wholesale changes after 3 wins on the bounce. If Marshall is fit of course.

    Dumbarton 2014. When was United's last sell out against anybody but us?

    I was waiting until we hit 50 before updating
  16. Could be looking for a new manager in February if found guilty.

    Did we get word on how long Hamilton is out for and have we had any update on Marshall?

    Dundee V Dabs (Home, 08th Nov 2019)

    He's far from perfect and has plenty of flaws but strangely, we seem to rely on him. I'd dread going in to the derby without him if he was injured. It's strange that McPake was a CB but the weakest part of the team is the back 4.

    Dundee V Dabs (Home, 08th Nov 2019)

    Wins nearly everything in the air which is where it is a lot of the time in that position. Long distribution out of defence is hit or miss but easily the best out the back 4. Delivers a good diagonal in the box quite often. Can be guilty of shirt pulling and climbing on opponents but seems to get away with it most of the time. Not sure how you could come to that conclusion.

    3500 of our seats were already "sold" (ST holders) so just under 4000 we had to sell and just over 4000 for them.

    Our end will sell out tomorrow or Wednesday at the latest. I was just having a laugh at them taking a week to sell out at general sale as they were very confident they'd sell out to season ticket holders only. Two derbies so far. One a 14k sell out. The next away to be an 11.5k sell out. In the second tier. Tremendous from both sets of fans tbf.

    If true, absolutely hilarious after claiming they didn't have enough to meet demand and someone on Twitter claiming they'd be buying for our end.
