  1. We'd have probably lost a play-off to most Championship teams early in the season but I'd expect us to beat any of them now if full-strength. If we continue to be blighted by injuries I think it'd be too tough to call.
  2. With no action for the big teams this weekend I thought it might be worth a look to see how our lower league neighbours are getting on as the dabs host Partick. The Jags have one win and 10 defeats from their last 13 games, which is quite incredible given they had the same budget as us last season and just 18 months ago finished a top six team in the Premiership with Archibald a contender for Manager of the Year. Maybe today will be the day they finally get their act together because their team looks pretty decent. United recently were gubbed 5-0 at home by Ayr United and last week were outclassed by the mighty Alloa Athletic. Hopefully the wheels are about to come off once again.

    Statement On the Flag Incident

    I think the grovelling and unnecessary apology has caused more offence than the initial act of removing an Irish flag from an advertising board. Maybe it's time for another apology!
  4. Games don't come much bigger than this six-pointer between the two bottom teams. St Mirren have lost 11 of their 15 home games so this has to be considered a great opportunity for Dundee to take all three points. Can the Dee beat Saints at the third attempt?

    St Mirren V Dundee

    I'm pretty sure we'd have to cancel a loan in the January window to have that player registered to play for us in the latter part of the season.
  6. Full-time 2-1. Alloa can climb off the foot of the table and overtake Partick by winning at Tannadice tomorrow.
  7. Absolute cracker to put ICT 2-1 up with 10 minutes left. Flick from Doran is smashed home by Walsh. ICT heading for fourth place.
  8. Lovely finish that. Bannigan bends in the equaliser.
  9. 1-0 ICT. United's play-off spot could be under threat yet.
  10. 1-0 to the Jags. Goal chalked off.
  11. Scotland are in Astana on Thursday afternoon for the opening Euro qualifier. You'd think we could comfortably beat the 117th best team in the world but the Kazakhs did come from 2-0 to claim a draw with Poland in a World Cup qualifier not so long ago so they could cause us problems. If we perform like we did in Israel we could suffer another shocking result. Hopefully McLeish gets his line-up right this time. With McGregor retired it looks like former Dee Scott Bain could be Scotland's number 1! Our star full-backs Robertson and Tierney are both crocked and with no Griffiths, Fletcher and Naismith, Christ knows who'll play up top. Looks like we're going to need big performances from McGregor and Forrest to come away with the three points.

    St Mirren V Dundee

    Our survival is hanging by a thread and we've become dependent on a striker who injured himself during a celebration. After missing every penalty we've taken, been shafted by cheats and poor refereeing numerous times, gifted goals through ridiculous defensive lapses and most recently started suffering injury time calamities, it really does feel like it's not Dundee's season. Still plenty football to be played though.
  13. Relegation-threatened Partick host promotion-chasing Inverness at Firhill tonight. Kick-off 1905. Both teams have impressed in 2019 so it's a tough one to call. An away win increases the likelihood Dundee will face ICT at the end of the season.

    Interesting. Still, you wonder why the Kazakhs are keen to remain in Uefa when it's so much travel for them and any European country that needs to play in Astana. You've got Scotland needing to fly past the Middle East to play a qualifier in Kazakhstan and Australia needing to fly past the Kazakhstan to play qualifiers in the Middle East. Crazy.

    Statement On the Flag Incident

    I assumed that DFC issued this ridiculous apology to prevent a future boycott of Dens by Celtic fans but having looked at their forums I struggled to find any mention of the flag incident. If they're not particularly bothered about it, I'm not sure why we are.

    Statement On the Flag Incident

    So be it. There is no need for national flags at domestic games. You take a Saltire to Scotland games or European games to show pride in your nation. You shouldn't need to wave national flags at a game between two teams from the same country.

    Statement On the Flag Incident

    Great post although I personally do have an issue with Scottish football fans taking Irish tricolours to Scottish football matches. If we're going to eradicate Irish politics and bigotry from our game we need to clamp down on these pretend religious folk. I wouldn't allow any Irish flags or Union Jacks into Dens.

    Statement On the Flag Incident

    Lengthy discussions about a f**cking flag being removed from advertising board and an official apology to be plastered over the sports pages of the Daily Record and Evening Times? Unbelievable. Let's cover their advertising board at Parkhead with flags and see what happens.

    No doubt we'll be motivated to face the Belgians though when the "brave Scots" will fall to a last-gasp defeat.

    Only two nations from western Europe have conceded three goals in Astana... Scotland and Andorra.

    Bain seemed destined for the very top in season 2014/15 but he hasn't looked international class to me since.

    Euro 2020

    Are we looking at the worst result in our history? Getting humped by the 117th best team in the world is surely a new low.

    Euro 2020

    Georgia was a real kick in the teeth. They were on a horrible run but it ended when they beat us. We failed to register a shot on target and Ireland and Poland took advantage.

    This disaster reminds me of that time Levein played 4-6-0 against a rotten Czech side and our campaign was screwed from the start.
