  1. 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

  12. 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.”

  14. The trio done enough in Tuesdays 3-1 win over St Mirren to convince McCann to give them another chance to impress. The manager wants them to show him that they can offer something different than the current crop of players already at his disposal. Only then will he go to the Board of Directors to talk about funding for any deals. The Dundee gaffer said: “It is not about numbers, it is about quality. “If the right player becomes available I will go with the begging hat to John and hopefully he will throw some money into it. “We have got quite a number there and there are obviously a few trialists within that group – boys I want to have a look at. “They have to be better than what we’ve got – that’s clear. “The pedigree of the players we are bringing in, without doubt on paper and because of where they have been previously, means they are of that stature. “But they have to prove it to me.”

    Tip-top Dundee good news for Paul Hartley

    After tough training sessions when they reported back on Monday and again the next morning, Paul used all 21 available personnel in Tuesday night’s friendly win at Arbroath. He was delighted with the work they put in during the 2-0 victory and the fact they clearly looked after themselves during their time off. “I was pleased because we basically had two teams out,” said Paul of an encouraging 90 minutes that saw Marcus Haber and Craig Wighton net in the second half to ease the Dark Blues to victory. “First half there was some really good football without any goals. Second half we get the goals and the game changed a wee bit because the wind picked up. “Overall, I thought it was a good exercise for us and the players were very sharp. They came back on Monday after a week off but they’ve looked very sharp. “And I think the strength of the squad was there to see. I was pleased for Haber to get a goal and then he created a goal and I thought we were always a threat in the final third.” One noticeable absentee from the Dundee ranks was striker Rory Loy, who is expected to complete a loan move to Championship strugglers St Mirren. The Buddies are due to be at Dens Park to take on the Dark Blues in the Scottish Cup next weekend. However, should his move go through, Loy will not be allowed to face his parent club in that fourth-round tie. Paul said: “It looks like he is going to get a loan move done, to probably St Mirren, over the next 24 hours or so. “It’s been agreed and we are just waiting on the paperwork being done.” As well as studying players in his own team last night, the manager was playing particular attention to one of the opposition ranks — Josh Skelly. He’s on a season-long loan from Dens and his permanent boss is pleased with the progress he’s making under Dick Campbell at the Red Lichties. “He did OK,” added Hartley. “I think it’s important for the young players to go out on loan. Going out and getting what I would call real football is better experience than the Development League.”
  17. The Dark Blues just returned to training yesterday after being given the first week of the mid-season break off. Any niggling injuries felt through the December run of matches will, hopefully, have been given the time needed to heal. And the match at Gayfield will be an ideal opportunity for Paul Hartley’s men to get the legs going again as they prepare for a return to action in just under two weeks time. The Dark Blues will be looking to hit the ground running after the break, starting in the Scottish Cup next Saturday at home to St Mirren. They are then back in league action the Friday after away at Aberdeen. Dundee should have skipper Darren O’Dea back available after he missed the Hogmanay victory over St Johnstone with illness. James Vincent also picked up a knock before the 3-0 win in the Tayside derby and is expected to be back. Nicky Low has had a frustrating season with injury and, providing there was no setback over the past few days, could get some much-needed game time under his belt as he looks to make a comeback from a long-standing groin problem. With it being a friendly, it will be interesting to see if wantaway striker Rory Loy is given a run out. The former-Falkirk man has been told he is free to find another club after he fell down the pecking order this season. Greenock Morton, Queen of the South and Ayr United have been reported to have registered interest in the forward. He has notched four goals in 17 appearances this season in dark blue, although many of those have been from the bench. Arbroath, of course, haven’t stopped for a break with only the top flight shutting down and will be themselves match sharp, giving a good test for Dundee. The Red Lichties come into the game on the back of a win after beating Edinburgh City 2-0 at Meadowbank and boss Dick Campbell says he’ll be making changes to his side. They don’t have a big squad, however, and will be pretty much full strength. They’ll be giving new signing Eddie Ferns a home debut after his capture from Stirling Albion. Kick-off is 7.45pm and is open to the public. Tickets are £8 for adults, £5 for concessions and £10 for an adult and child combo (U/16).
  18. When you enter through the main reception at Dens Park, you are greeted with a picture with a simple caption ‘The Penalty King’ and inside the frame is a photo of the boy genius of Dundee, Andy Penman, who made his debut for the club of the tender age of 15 and won a Championship medal just four years later after scoring the goal which clinched the title. Andy Penman was a wonderful midfield player with startling vision and a fine passer of the ball who could clip balls precisely through, round and over defences to give his forwards clear, unhindered runs at goal. He was a genius, a child prodigy in the art of football who went down to Everton straight from school in Dunfermline and turned out for their reserve side in a Merseyside derby at just 15 years of age. Born in Rosyth on February 20th 1943, the son of a Fife miner was homesick down in Liverpool and it didn’t take much for manager Willie Thornton to persuade Andy to come back north to Scotland and sign an amateur contract with his Dundee side in 1958. Thornton knew he had signed someone special and it took just two games in the reserves to convince the Dundee management that they had a real talent and was pitched him into the first team against Hearts at Tynecastle just 13 days before his 16th birthday making him the youngest player to ever turn out in the Scottish League. With 12 months Andy was a regular in the Dundee side and wearing the number 7 shirt, he made 21 appearances in the 1959/60 season. It was towards the end of that campaign that Andy showed his goal scoring potential with a hat-trick against Hibs in a 6-3 win at Dens but it wasn’t until the following year that Penman started to earn his ‘Penalty King’ nickname when he scored his first spot kick for the club. That historic strike came in a League Cup quarter-final second leg tie at home to Rangers but it wasn’t enough to see The Dee into the semi-final as the Dark Blues lost 4-3, to be knocked out 5-3 on aggregate. Sharing the penalty duties with Doug Cowie and Bobby Cox, Penman managed three that term but the following season saw Andy take over the responsibility full time and scored five on the way to Dundee winning the League Flag. At the start of the 1961/62 season, the arrival of Gordon Smith meant that Penman moved to inside-right and the pair forged a formidable right-wing partnership which helped bring Dundee the Scottish League Championship and then European Glory. Having scored 12 goals in the previous two campaigns, Andy’s new position saw him now contribute 17 goals on the way to winning the title including a hat-trick at home to Kilmarnock (against whom he had broken a leg the year before) in October and the third in the 3-0 win over St Johnstone at Muirton Park on the final day to clinch the Scottish League Division One title. The Championship season saw Dundee go on a club record 20 games undefeated and amongst those matches was a friendly against Swedish champions Elfsborg when Andy scored 5 in an 8-1 win at Dens and a Dewer Shield 4-2 win over St Johnstone in which Andy scored from the spot. Andy also scored three goals pre season which meant that in Dundee’s title’s winning year, Penman scored an impressive 26 goals. Winning the title meant European competition for the first time in the club’s history and Andy was an ever present throughout the season as Dundee reached the Champions’ Cup semi-final. In the preliminary round against Cologne, Andy was part of a tie that he would never forget when in the first leg at Dens, he scored in the remarkable 8-1 win and then in the second leg in Germany, he ended up in goal after Bert Slater was stretchered off in the 27th minute. “Whoever put Andy Penman in goal has made better decisions,” claimed Ian Ure on the 40th anniversary of the tie but the youngster was brave enough to take over the number one shirt. Already 1-0 down on the night, Andy let in a further two goals before half time and it was a relief to everyone connected with Dundee when Bert Slater returned between the sticks early in the second half to help Dundee win the tie 8-5 on aggregate. That European Cup season would see Andy play 52 times, scoring 14 goals and was the only player to play in every match throughout the 1962/63 campaign. He would again hit 50 appearances the following season but his goal scoring record was more than double the year before, scoring a terrific 30 goals in all competitions but astonishingly was only the second top scorer behind 52 goal ‘Gillie’. He did however finish top goalscorer in the next two seasons with 33 goals in 1964/55 and 19 the following year. Season 1963/64 saw Andy and Dundee reach the Scottish Cup Final but he collected a runners-up medal after a 3-1 defeat to future employers Rangers. The Championship win two years previously turned out to be not only Andy’s only winner’s medal with Dundee but also the only winner’s medal of his career. Considering that he signed for Rangers for £30,000 plus George McLean in 1967, it is a surprise that he didn’t collect another winner’s medal but these were barren years for Rangers as Celtic dominated and he missed out on a European Cup Winner’s Cup triumph in 1972 through injury. Before he left for Ibrox Andy was called up for Scotland in 1966 when he made his full international debut against the Netherlands to add to his Under-23 and Scottish League caps he won while at Dens. It is a tragedy that he only won a further two full caps but it meant he had been capped at every level by Scotland from Schoolboy upwards. After leaving Rangers in 1973, Andy joined Arbroath who were then in the top flight and was signed by his former Dens Park team mate Bert Henderson who was then manager of the Red Lichties. A crowd of 3416 turned up for his debut against Hearts at Gayfield and although struggling for fitness having not played for five months, Andy was in sparkling form, strolling around the park spraying passes with unerring accuracy. He was instrumental in tearing Hearts apart as he set up numerous chances for the home forwards, including fellow Dundee Hall of Famer Billy Pirie who scored the first in a 3-0 win. After three years at Gayfield, in which he scored 10 goals in 79 league appearances, it was off to the Highlands to become player/manager of Inverness Caledonian where he received a testimonial in 1979 when an Inverness Select played a Dundee FC XI. Andy was a tireless worker in midfield and contributed a fantastic 141 goals as one of only ten players to score over a century of goals for Dundee and is the Dark Blue’s fifth top all time scorer. A dead ball expert, his forte was from the penalty spot where he rarely missed, scoring 25 times from 12 yards in his eight years at Dens. Sadly Andy died in 1994 aged just 51 but his legacy lives on at Dens Park. Not only are you greeted by his image when you enter the main door but there is also a hospitality lounge that bears his name, as does the official DFC supporters club in his native Fife. Penman was also inducted into the club’s Hall of Fame in 2011 with a Legends Award which was accepted on his behalf by his son, Andrew Junior and for Dundee fans of a certain vintage,, who had voted him in, it showed that ‘Boy Kings’ never grow up and they never die, at least not in the memories of those who were lucky enough to witness the skills and the genius of Andy Penman.

    Dundee looking to pick up where they left off

    Manager Paul Hartley has prioritised game-time for his players after giving them a full week off. He will be hoping that they can hit the ground running in their Scottish Cup tie against St Mirren and wants to minimise the risk of ring-rust by the time that match comes around on January 21. Then it will be back to league business, with the Dark Blues looking up the table rather than down after their impressive 3-0 Hogmanay defeat of St Johnstone. One man particularly keen to get going again is Faissal El Bakhtaoui, who scored in the Tayside derby. “For me, that was the best performance of the team since I’ve been here,” the former Dunfermline man said. “We’re feeling good to come back and go for the top six. “I was happy to come back and score my goal as well. “It was a good way to finish off the break. After it we need to push on after that good performance.” Darren O’Dea and James Vincent should both be back in the squad after missing the Saints game. Meanwhile, there will be a Dundee legend in the Arbroath squad after Rab Douglas agreed to stay with the Red Lichties through to the end of the season. The 44-year-old signed in October and was due to leave this month, however manager Dick Campbell has persuaded the former Scotland man to remain as back-up to Ricky Gomes until the end of the campaign. Campbell said: “I am delighted that Rab is staying with us. “I was not sure if he would so I had been making alternative plans, however when they did not work out we had a chat and Rab agreed to stay on. “He will continue to push Ricky and I am delighted about that.”
