    League Cup 19/20 Thread

    Inverness host Cove tonight while Raith host Peterhead. Wins for ICT and Peterhead would see Dundee drop to third but whatever happens I'm pretty sure Dundee need to win at least two points on Sunday to progress.
  2. If we aren't good enough to challenge for the top spot, the worry is we end up battling relegation again. Last season only eight points separated 5th and 10th in this division. Queen of the South, who bossed us home and away in the cup, finished joint bottom so we really need to start picking up points early on. It would appear the days of teams like Dundee having a dire season in the second tier and still comfortably staying up are over.
  3. I did read that but don't know for sure. If I was McPake my no.1 priority would have been to give Miller the armband and get him onboard for our promotion challenge but what's done is done and we need to move on. I do think that losing both Ralph and Miller has torpedoed our chances of finishing top though.
  4. Huggs, I'm just starting to think we're not serious contenders for automatic promotion. For whatever reason, our most experienced and arguably best player walked out the door. We've got little continuity again with half a new team to bed in. Our squad is threadbare. We've got a novice manager puzzling over how to create chances against Cove and Peterhead. I think it probably all adds up to Dundee realistically aiming for the play-offs.
  5. Had we persuaded Miller to see out the last year of his contract, we'd have a more settled team going into the new season, we'd have some invaluable experience and leadership qualities and wouldn't be desperately trying to find a quality striker at a time of the year when they are near impossible to find. I don't know what went on there but we didn't seem particularly bothered about letting him to go to Firhill.
  6. Another move for the dabs to master. https://streamable.com/cd3cv

    Five Players Required.

    I hate to read this kind of post from a loyal Dee. You do have every right to be fed-up. I just wonder what you think the club should be doing to keep you involved? Is the problem with Scottish football or DFC in your opinion?

    I think Jack has done well so far. He can be our man this season to stand tall and say "you're not getting past me!"

    That save was something else. Can you imagine if we threw away a 2-0 goal lead at home to Dumbarton and Hamilton were promoted on Goals Scored after scoring 10 against Morton? That would have been some story and taken us years to get over.
  10. Apologies if I missed that report but did the management really say there is a list of 15 strikers?

    Our last season in this division didn't end so badly. Hopefully our team can give long-suffering Dees a long overdue year to remember in 2019/2020.

    St Johnstone are already out of cup and we're top of our group so we should probably relax a bit and see how things go against Caley.

    Good players make such a difference. Avram Grant and Roberto di Matteo reached European Cup finals with a superb Chelsea side and were then exposed as fairly limited managers at smaller clubs. Closer to home, Hartley was crestfallen after Stewart and Hemmings were sold because he probably suspected Dundee and his reputation were about to suffer. McPake might well be management material but if his players lack the quality to challenge there's not a lot he can say or do to compensate.
