    Hi PB, Things must be slow at present on the Forum if you have resolved to having a ‘pop’ at my posts.

    No. I am fed up battling with other posters who ‘nit pick’ about the information in my posts.

    Hi Chomp. Thank you for your information. I assume that the Hutton weather station is situated at Mylnefield, Invergowrie. I can remember weather reports from Mylnefield being published in the Courier and Evening Telegraph in the 1970’s. Monthly temperature totals used to be published plus if there was a heatwave or very cold weather the temperature at Mylnefield that day was often published. Nowadays people can obtain up to date temperatures from their local Met Office station on the Internet.

    Hi Attilio. I can only go by what the enclosed Met Office site states. . https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/observation/gfjchqtgs

    Hi BCram, That is no problem. Last night I posted on the ‘other forum’ that I ‘cut my teeth’ posting on a forum called ForArgyll.com which had some posters who would not listen to reason. Sadly ForArgyll.com is no more and I have progressed to bigger forums.

    Hi BCram. Thank you for your support. I have no plans to change my posting style just to keep the masses happy.

    Dundee supporters will need their long johns on this Saturday as it is forecast to be very cold but at least there will be little wind. I enclose the Met Office weather forecast for Dundee (Leuchars is the closest weather station to Dundee) for this Saturday. https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/forecast/gfjchqtgs#?date=2019-01-19

    I have previously posted that the grass does not grow if the temperature is below 45F. Therefore if the temperature is continually below 45F throughout the month of February the grass will not grow. However there could be much colder days in January but also some days where the temperature is above 45F resulting in the grass growing during these days. I can remember hearing my parents saying that they will be glad when February is over as it is always a cold month. I think it is because the sea temperatures around the UK are at their coldest during February. No doubt someone will tell me that my information is wrong.

    Hi Rev The topic moved due to the debate about the winter shutdown and how it affected Premier League clubs when they came out of ‘cold storage’ and were playing clubs from a lower league who had been playing every weekend since the end of the year. I would not believe everything that you read in Google which incidentally I refuse to use Google as they are an American company who try to avoid paying tax in the UK and other countries (legally but not morally). I prefer to use local knowledge but most people prefer written fact whether it is correct or not. Eventually other posters wear me down and I lose the will to live.

    I remember Marcus Dailly. I think that he only played in the Reserve team but that was during my armchair supporter period so I was not aware of everything that was going on at Dens at that time

    Stefani Dailly sister of ex Dab Christian Dailly is a STV sports presenter and reporter. Her twitter page is full of stuff about the Dabs with very little about Dundee FC. It is almost like she has a direct line to Tannadice.
