  1. Worryingly for the Dee, they failed to register a single shot on target against part-time Peterhead in a frustrating afternoon for both the fans and players. James McPake missed this match due to the birth of his new-born so Assistant Jimmy Nicholl and first team coach Dave Mackay took to the dugout with the latter less than pleased with the performance. "It was pretty poor to be honest," said Mackay. “The only positives you take is that we got a bonus point, a clean sheet and Finn Robertson in the middle of the park - I thought he was excellent for a 16-year-old. "I wouldn't say it's a major concern, but it needs to get better. "We also know we need reinforcements. But, as the manager stressed, we are not going to be forced into just signing any players." Mackay also went on to talk about target Stevie May who has also attracted interest from Kilmarnock, Dundee United, St Johnstone and Ross County. "I have met with Stevie and had a chat with him, but he has got a lot to think about. "It is a big decision for him as well, whether he moves out on a permanent deal or leaves on a loan from Aberdeen." “He is a player we would love to get, he is a player I have played with and I know how good he can be. "Especially in the Championship, he would basically guarantee you goals."
  2. Paul Hartley was the man who brought McPake to Dens Park in the summer of 2014 as he prepared the Dee for their Premiership arrival but now, he will face off against his old gaffer as Dundee hope to build on Saturdays 3-0 victory over Raith Rovers. Despite now being managerial rivals, McPake is thankful that recently appointed Cove Rangers boss Hartley helped him get started on the road with coaching. “I liked the way he worked. He was unfortunate here, I think," said McPake. “The second season we finished seventh in the league and we were probably better than what we were the season before when we finished sixth. He had us going well here and it was unfortunate the way it ended, but he’s someone I really liked. “I was grateful. He was the one who got me into coaching. Well, not got me in, but gave me a head start. If Paul hadn’t done that then I wouldn’t be sitting here, that’s for sure. Knowing Paul, he wants to work and he takes on projects. “He’ll want to get them up through the leagues. That’s what will motivate him. He’s a hard worker and he will do well there.”
  3. Did someone mention on here that they heard we were after Shankland? United have came out saying they have offered him a deal

    The New Stadium Thread

    Funny you should say that, seen a couple of people on Twitter mention something about good news about this new stadium happening sometime next week. Either that or they have seen your post
  5. Dundee are looking at out-of-contract left-back Jordan Marshall from Queen of the South. They would however be due the Dumfries team a development fee. Dundee won't be pursing Linfield striker Michael O’Connor despite reports linking him with the Dee (The Tully)
  6. The 22-year-old defender joins from Falkirk on a two-year deal, following in the footsteps of wingers Josh Todd and Declan McDaid from Queen of the South and Ayr United. McGhee started his career at Hearts and made his debut for the Jam Tarts in May 2013 at the tender age of 16. He played 16 times during their Championship League winning campaign in 2014/15 and the young defender would feature heavily in Hearts return to the Premiership the following season before he was signed by Middlesbrough on season long loan for their development team. A year later, McGhee joined Falkirk for an undisclosed fee following the end of his loan in England and made 76 appearances over two season with the Bairns, eventually being made captain for the team in January of this year. Speaking to the Official Dundee website, McGhee showed his delight at signing for the Dee.
  7. This will be our 5th year where we, as a community can help the young stars of tomorrow break through the ranks. Players like Cammy Kerr, Craig Wighton and Gavin Rae, who all broke through the ranks to become a full-time professional footballers, as we like to say, 'they're one of our own!'. Your sponsorship money will help the young players at our club flourish, buying much needed equipment and training facilities. So you know your donations will be put to good use. Our aim this year is to raise a total of £780, this way as part of The Dark Blues and Up Wi' The Bonnets community you can help sponsor a First Team, Youth Team and/or Academy player for the up and coming season! Please note all prices include VAT. First Team Player Sponsorship: £450 Youth Team Player Sponsorship: £198 Academy Player Sponsorship: £120 How to Donate There are a few methods you can choose to donate towards player sponsorship 2019/20. PayPal: This is probably the easiest and secure method for you to donate your cash. Credit Card: You can choose to pay via your credit card and this can be done with Pay Pal. Collection and Collection Points: MORE INFO COMING SOON (or contact @Tayzurri) You can use our form to donate here: https://www.thedarkblues.co.uk/clients/donations/ PLEASE CHOOSE THE DARK BLUES PLAYER SPONSORSHIP 2019/20 The above options will incur a small fee, we suggest that you use the 'Friends and Family' option when donating to us and this eliminates this.

Sponsor Players Named The quicker we can raise our objectives, then the quicker we can find out which players are available in each category. When we know this information we will then put the player names into a poll and vote on the players you would like The Dark Blues to sponsor. I think this is probably the fairest of all the options we could have chosen. We will hold at a raffle to determine who will win a framed jersey signed and/or the invite to annual sponsors event. Raffle Ticket System For every £10 donated, a raffle ticket with a random ticket number will be given to you on the closing date. The more you donate we will throw in a few more tickets, so you will have a better chance of winning.

Closing Date As of yet there is no closing date to this event. However, this will change once we get more information from the club as to when we can submit our donations. We will announce the winners after the closing date. NB: Please note. You will have to be a dark blue member to vote for the sponsored player. On Behalf of everyone here at the Dark Blues and Up Wi' The Bonnets, I would like to thank everyone who has donated or will donate to help the club! Cheers!

    Player Sponsorship 2019/20 Donations!

    Ok, if we meet our target, how does it sound if we can randomly pick 5 people who have donated and I'll give them a Dundee DVD from my collection. It will be a full 90 minute match. Deal?

    @WoodStein did you try changing the streaming on the HD icon on the player? It's normally set at the lowest when I go on it and have to change it to full HD
