    Season 19/20 - Championship Rivals

    Is history repeating itself with Lawrence Shankland?. After he started last season on fire at Ayr he then struggled to replicate that form in the second half of the season after picking up an injury. Reports today are now suggesting that he's torn a thigh muscle on international duty, as was rumoured, and faces a number of weeks on the sidelines.

    There were loads in the boy scouts, I don't suppose we'll be wearing woggles and khaki shorts any time soon.

    I wouldn't say I'm embarrassed by it but you have raised a few fair points.

    Think this one could be a winner judging by the initial response.
  7. You could be right, I just think the Americans are reaching the end of the line here so I think they'll ride out any storm until Campy reaches some kind of conclusion. They've invested too much in McPake to give in easily anyway.
  8. Personally think we'll give it 2yrs with this group. If we don't go up then we're miles off the pace the following season then I think we'll revaluate in the January 2021 window. It'll probably cost us more to pay off guys at the end of this season then sign replacements. We'd be better hanging on to them until January where they will be easier to offload if the need was to arise.
  9. McPake will, imo, (unless things go drastically wrong) be FPS's last managerial appointment. I think they'll persevere with him long enough to see Campy reach a conclusion one way or another. They'll likely move on either way.

    Decade Highlights for the Dee

    Brilliant, passionate post Frank.
  11. I'm totally guessing but I suspect that JMcP has been told, barring a calamitous collapse, that he's in the managerial hotseat long term. Nelms seems to make uninformed decisions but there's also been a number of occasions where the fans have said no and, maybe coincidentally, the club have adhered to that. I think Nelms is aware that the fans want a period of stability and I think experience tells the owners that short term fixes only paper over the cracks and costs them a sh*t load of money.

    Welcome Home Barry

    Seems to be the press that've claimed he's back, I'm assuming it's correct but as you say there's nothing on the official. https://www-thecourier-co-uk.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.thecourier.co.uk/fp/sport/football/dundee-fc/1022059/exclusive-barry-smith-is-back-at-dundee/amp/?amp_js_v=a2&amp_gsa=1&usqp=mq331AQCKAE%3D#aoh=15742467570825&referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&amp_tf=From %1%24s&ampshare=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thecourier.co.uk%2Ffp%2Fsport%2Ffootball%2Fdundee-fc%2F1022059%2Fexclusive-barry-smith-is-back-at-dundee%2F

    Welcome Home Barry

    McCann had pace and that was his main asset, his understudy, Ian Anderson, was the one with the tricks. Agree with you on the rest though.

    Welcome Home Barry

    Strange how Neil McCann, who played 82 games during 2 spells as a player, scored 6 goals then had a disastrous spell as manager, is regarded as a club legend, yet Barry Smith, who played 368 games, scored 4 goals that had a fairytale first season in management is regarded as a journeyman with limited ability. For me we've got them the wrong way round.

    Welcome Home Barry

    Agree with @DFC1974 think it's a wee but unfair to refer to Barry Smith as nothing more than a journeyman, to me, and likely plenty of others, he was far more than just reliable. Apart from the large chunk of his playing career he gave to us and his regular captaincy he also masterminded one of the most incredible seasons in our long history, there was even a book written to celebrate that seasons achievements. He was no Billy Steel or Claudio Canniggia (he'll be the first to admit that) but that doesn't mean he wasn't a legend in his own rights.
