  1. Our Ladbrokes Championship match with Arbroath at the Kilmac Stadium at Dens Park which was postponed on Saturday has been rescheduled for Tuesday 24th March. If you were given community match tickets for the game, please hold onto them as they will be valid this rescheduled game. The match will kick off at 7.45pm.
  2. The Dark Blues can feel lucky that they came away from this game with a point. Ex-dee Bobby Linn opened the scoring in the 37th minute when he beat Hamilton from outside the box. Dundee didn't even huff and puff in this game, but the Dee equalised through Kane Hemmings in the 61st minute, when his header hit the bottom left of Gaston. Full-time: Arbroath 1 - 1 Dundee
  3. How did you rate James McPake's team selection, substitutions and performance today?
  4. Dundee travel to Arbroath this weekend with only victory in the plans
  5. I naturally understand that we move with the times, and we as a club are no exception to this rule. However, there are times when you have to start questioning whether change is change just for the sake of it or whether it is indeed necessary. Pay at the gate, is what most punters are accustomed too. We go to the game, queue up and hand over our hard-earned cash at the turnstile and make our way to our seats to watch our team. You might even pick up a Pie and Bovril while you’re at it. However, times are changing, the norms are not being taken for granted anymore, and you have to queue up twice, once to purchase a ticket and then at the turnstiles. Take this weekend’s match for example. Our club is playing away to Arbroath, the game is considered an all ticket venue but only for away fans. Yet, home fans can still pay cash at the gate. You have to ask yourself why the discrepancy here between two different fan sets? To make matters worse, home fans are now expected to travel into Dundee to purchase their tickets before they head off on their away fixture. Asking supporters to possibly travel long distances to purchase a ticket before a football match is not acceptable. This could have been more convenient and simpler by travelling to Gayfield, paying at the gate saving on both fuel and precious time. Is this away game an important fixture, say a cup final with limited seating available? Nope, this is your typical second-tier football match shortly before Christmas and New Year. The prospects of freezing my backside off watching a poor game doesn’t bare thinking about after all that journey time. The official capacity of Gayfield is precisely 4.153 with 814 seating. Arbroath's attendance averages for this season average out at just over 1000 per home game. Even if the club were to take over 2,000 supporters (And that is being generous.) this would never be anywhere near Gayfield’s maximum attendance limit. As this would require nearly 3/4 of Dundee's normal home support travelling up the A92. It's never going to happen, not at this time of year on a poor run of form anyway. My critical issue with this whole debacle is we are presently living in a digital age. Most times we go online, we purchase or items and it then they are delivered to our doorstep via the post. Most companies these days do not send out "paper" tickets to their customers. These e-tickets are typically sent to an email address or mobile-phone app and are displayed before entering the into the stadium. Why are we still forcing people to queue in line to purchase paper tickets when we have an E-Tickets system already up and running? It seems counter intuitive to have an online system and not fully use it. Either let people buy tickets online or pay by cash at the gate.
  6. Dundee’s meeting with bottom club Partick Thistle today offers the chance to build on their last league win against Arbroath, and continue the progress I think they are capable of. It has been a tough start to the season but the big gap between them and United which threatened to be insurmountable a few weeks ago has narrowed to six points…or two derby day wins. There is ability in the squad which James McPake has assembled. The do need, though, a rub of the green and the backing of the fans, along with the freedom to play the football they are capable of. Graham Dorrans in midfield has the craft to be the creative midfielder the team has lacked; in Declan McDaid they have an energetic wide man who can beat an opponent, provide crosses, and chip in with goals; and there is energy and ability spread through the squad. The manager just needs to find the magic recipe to make all of those ingredients mix to make the cake rise. Getting the ingredients of a team to blend can be frustrating but if he can do that there is potentially a sweet-looking side ready to satisfy the taste buds of Dens fans. View the full article
  7. The official has made the Arbroath game available to everyone. Enjoy!
  8. The Dark Blues win at home and earn the three points today. Declan McDaid with two goals, in the 38th and 59th minute earn him man of the match. Dundee 2 - 0 Arbroath
  9. How did you rate James McPake's team selection, substitutions and performance today?
  10. I'd go 4-4-2 in this game and get some experience in the side with McPake and Finn to sit this one out. Hamilton Kerr Forster McGhee marshall Todd dorrans Byrne Mcdaid Nelson Johnson

  15. Wolters said: “For me this is special because it is the first time I have played away from Holland. “I want to be an important part of the team here. “I love the interaction with the fans and hopefully I can celebrate some more. “I enjoyed my first game and am settling in well. Dundee fell behind early on to a Steven Doris penalty and wouldn’t really trouble the Arbroath goalkeeper until he second half when Fassial El Bakhtaoui levelled the score after Craig Wighton seen his shot rebound off the post. Dundee secured the victory with minutes to go when Scott Allan showed great vision to cross a low ball into the box which Wolters hit first time into the bottom corner. “I think we played better in the second-half, sometimes we gave the ball away too early but we can work on that,” said Wolters. “We got the ball to the wings, which is always good for me. “We have a lot of good football playing players this season but it is important that we can both play good football and also be tough and manly when we need to in matches. “I love to shoot from distance but I can also be strong in matches. “I like to use step-overs and best defenders so hopefully the fans get to see that this season.”
