    It's not a big deal for me either mate. I moved this thread to the general football section as it was getting a bit tetchy and it's not worth falling out over something like this.

    I don't think there is any need to hate a player just because he wears tangerine but some folk seem to want to blow smoke up his a**e and I'm sure there are better places to praise your favourite dab. He might well have learned his lessons. Time will tell I suppose. Fletcher, Burke, Brophy and Stewart have delivered at a higher level than Shankland so I would have thought they'd be better options as we try to reach the Euros through the play-offs.

    Great player to have at Scottish Championship level but he's not international class and couldn't get a League One club down south to offer him a deal in the summer. Derek McInnes, Jim Duffy and Jack Ross have all been unhappy with his attitude so I'd be surprised if he kicks on and reaches a significantly higher level.

    Wrong thread.

    Yeah it could turn out to benefit us. He's started and scored for Scotland, mixing with Celtic players. Lazy journalists will start linking him with a move to the Old Firm. He's hit the big time! Problem is he's got to keep delivering at places like Recreation Park when opposition managers and defenders will take great delight in shutting him out.

    It's laughable. Carlo Monti would have found the net against that lot.

    Doesn't seem that long ago that Keith Wright wasn't considered good enough for the Scotland squad. How times have changed.

    He scored 30+ goals for Ayr last season against better opposition than what Scotland are facing today and wasn't able to attract a decent offer from down south. I think top of the Championship/bottom of the Premiership is his level.

    Why would the keeper do that? This lot are laughably inept. https://streamja.com/r2vg

    They conceded 9 in Russia and Belgium. They are hopeless. If we are absolutely keech tonight by our standards we'll still win 4-0.

    How lucky is Shankland? Nowhere near international quality but before he's had a chance to be exposed as out of his depth Scotland find themselves playing at home to a pub team in a dead rubber so Shankland is guaranteed to get amongst the goals.

    We definitely are capable of winning this one Huggs. I just worry about former Dees McCall, Miller and Harkins returning to haunt us and Jags being bottom means they'll be hurting and desperate to put things right while Dundee will be expected to play on the front foot. It's an awkward fixture and the first goal I think will be decisive.

    This game looks problematic for us. McCall masterminded a crushing win for Ayr at Dens last season and he's already got one over United this season. He'll have his Thistle players right up for this one and their team will probably relish getting away from the frustrated home support. I hope Dees are patient are not expecting us to win comfortably because their bottom. It's going to be a tough game.

    Dundee V Partick

    I see Partick just won 2-0 in the diddy cup against the Welsh team that knocked Killie out of Europe. Starting XI... S. Fox S. Saunders S. McGinty T. O'Ware R. Williamson J. Penrice O. Kakay J. Cardle S. Bannigan K. Miller R. De Vita GGH an unused sub.

    Probably best the club say zip about this for now. No need to make a song and a dance when the case could be dropped.
  16. Very interesting this game this one as Kenny Miller returns to Dens for the first time in red, yellow and black. The Jags have lost all four home league games but away from home they've picked up a win, two draws and a defeat. Curiously their own away defeat came when they led 2-0 from the 28th to 72nd minute in Greenock and somehow came away with nothing. Both teams have scored in all Partick's away games but Dundee have kept an impressive 3 clean sheets out of 4 so it's hard to know what to expect here. Can the Dee continue their strong home form against one of the league's bigger clubs?
  17. Thought this might poll be ok on the Dundee board during international week as not a lot else happening. Quite a lot of Dees say they don't care about Scotland. I just wondered how the poll results might look for it. Have made it anonymous so folk can be honest without having to justify their choice.

    Surprisingly nothing in the Saturday national tabloids about it. Hopefully the story stays local.
  19. I find this a strange goal. The Czechs just make it look so easy. They win a header from the keeper's kick, the wide man takes two touches and cuts it back and it's a goal. https://streamja.com/jw0O
  20. I think what we need is a creative, goalscoring talisman to lift the team like Bale, Eriksen or Sigurdsson. Our only world class player is a full-back and as a result we lack belief. We know it's going to be a slog every time and the players are demoralised before a ball is kicked. Just knowing you have a guy capable of beating two men and smashing the ball home from 35 yards makes every game seem winnable. We're at the level of Czech Republic, Bosnia and Hungary but it wouldn't take an awful lot for us to be like Sweden, Poland and Wales. One player in the right position might do it.

    You'd think the guys who played 30+ games during the Deefiant season and ran themselves into the ground to keep the club alive would be able to read this board without seeing digs about their lack of commitment... but apparently not.

    If he was taunted over his horrific injury then I wouldn't hold it against him if he or someone else reacted. Imagine if a group of us chanted something about Parkinson's to Sturrock. It's not acceptable and reacting to it perfectly understandable. As for him for playing it down, there is no perfect response to an awkward question about a scuffle. You either say too much or you say too little. Let's just hope it goes away.
  23. I kind of feel the same blueboy. I remember working during World Cup 98 and going to meet pals for a bevvy, which was good. Also I'd like the chance to travel to a tournament but generally speaking I'm only really concerned about Dundee's games.
  24. Exactly 10 years ago Scotland were ranked 30th in the world and Belgium were ranked 68th. Who knows where we'll be in 5 or 10 years. We're pretty sh*t just now but I'm sure we'll return to the 20s at some point. It only took Denmark three years to go from 50th to top 10. If we get a good group of players together under the right manager I don't see why we can't go on a run and reach a major tournament. We're not the Faroes and destined to be sh*t forever.

    It could be that McPake laughed it off because it was just a bit of shoving but if there's a dab involved wanting to cause trouble for the Dundee manager he can make the most of it and claim he was assaulted.
