  1. I've added the following link ... in part, mainly for personal reasons (It brought back memories) ... https://www.eveningtelegraph.co.uk/fp/former-dundee-player-gerry- Away in the distant past just about the time the photo was taken, I was a pupil at Lawside Academy. At that time there was the 11+ exams (1952) which decided which school you were bound for, once you left Primary. Those with an academic skill (small minority) went to an Academy, whilst the rest (deemed to be no' sae bright) headed for the "ordinary" Secondary School ... where they could learn a basic trade (or even waste there time, if they preferred) ...Fae the Joey's it wis either Lawside or the Johnies. Weel in sending me to Lawside, eh certainly proved them wrang ... If there was a fault in the system, I was the ideal example to show this I hated the school, I hated the teachers, & thon Nun !! And I couldnae wait for the first opportunity to get oot o' it as a 15 yr. old Only two teachers stood out for me Mr Tully And that brilliant teacher Gerry Follon ... A Proper Teacher and a Proper Gentleman. He taught geography (which definitely was not my subject) yet it was the only class I looked forward to. "Thanks for the memories"
  2. It looks like eh'm no the only one that's up far too early on a Sunday Morning ... There's at least anither six active on the Forum at 5.00am.. We are awe Daft & Tired But Mighty happy "Good Morning Freends." The Dee
  3. Normally I would see these "Breaks" as an annoying, frustrating, disruptive distraction to the "real thing"... The progress, or lack of, of Dundee Fitba Club. But maybe at this time it could be a big benefit to DFC (That's assuming that for the DFC players, it's training as usual) Does anyone know if that's the case? I'm starting to come round to the idea that JM might well be the man to get the best out of our players, The next two weeks is a chance to learn a bit more.
  4. Does anyone else ever feel, FPS's interest in DFC was a means to an end? I don't think, their initial idea was, let's buy a Scottish Club & use this procurement, as a real means to extend & develop our international business interests? (I'm finding this difficult to put into the right words here) There was a real buzz & excitement from the early beginnings ... For them & for DFC fans/supporters. From the outset and even up to the present day, they have continued to give DFC financial backing. They have been prudent & business-like in their approach. They've shown their professionalism by NOT throwing "tons of money" at DFC ,in an ill-thought effort to buy success for DFC. They've been sensibly cautious. I don't think we can ever question their interest & enthusiasm for their adopted Club. But I now have this "gut feeling" there has been too much shift of interest. Maybe understandably the Campie Project (& all this may offer in financial returns to them) has meant DFC has worryingly moved away down the Totem Pole. I'm still feeling pretty far down, by the way Ayr did a demolition job on DFC (This might be affecting my judgement) But it still haunts me, the way John Nelms, appeared to casually dismiss DFC in the context of the New Campie Development. Not long after it was announced, in answer to a question on TV, about how DFC's position would affect the plans, he responded (not in these exact words) The Campie Project would go ahead, " irregardles what position/division DFC were in at the time" At the time, I found that comment hard to swallow. As I was convinced the Americans main priority & focus, was on developing their very ambitious plans for Dundee FC. As already emphasised earlier in the post, I do believe they have done us well since their arrival ... But I hope their eyes are not being diverted, by the magnanimity of this ... In terms of, time, work, & the huge investment, that will be required. I am sure most fans now, will be delighted to see Dundee FC housed in their, Brand New Stadium. But at this time, Total Focus, on Building A Succesful Premiership DFC Team would be my N01 Priority.
  5. DEETV (Copied & Pasted from Official) ..... "As part of the new DeeTV which will relaunch next week we are seeking volunteers to help on match days as commentators. We are looking for two commentators for the season to help add to the fantastic service which will be available for supporters. If you would like to apply, please send an example (Youtube link ideally) of your commentary to [email protected] We are also looking for a match day reporter to help out the media team on a match day with various roles which may include things such as social media, interviews, match reports and updates. If you would like to help out please email [email protected] with any examples of previous work which would be relevant to this role."
  6. Apologies if this not the most exciting, or current New Topic to put onto the Forum. Especially taking into account, it's a long time before we think o' that !! But wi' nae DFC gemme coming up this weekend, 'cause o' this International Stuff, the Forum is goin' kinda quiet methinks (least on the DFC Fitba Front) Just a simple question .... Is it worth DFC Playing Squad goin' awa tae some fancy place, like they did last year, tae thon really classy set-up in Austria? I remember at the time, especially seeing the Pictures, and the Daily Diary Updates, thinking, we really are moving along in a professional ambitious style. Even as an added thought at the time, I considered anyone thinking o' signing for DFC would see we were a go-ahead club. Well hindsight's a grand thing. There must have been some big pluses come oot o the trip to Austia. But the camaraderie/high expectations seemed to fall apart on the return Thoughts? (Remember what made me raise this as a topic. PH stated a few days ago that during this International Break there would be hard training)
  7. Don't know anything about DFC's pay structure. Nor do I particularly want to know, what the players are paid generally, or the varying degrees in the pay structure between individual players. However when it comes to scoring goals and turning games around, DFC showed what they could do in the second half (albeit against Dumbarton)...Putting away FIVE GOALS in 45 mins. As I said I do not know if DFC (or any other Scottish Clubs) are already on an additional Win Bonus, But if not, should it be something that should/could, be considered? Was it not Jim Mclean (& maybe many other managers) who introduced the idea of keeping the weekly wage level generally low, but adding a huge incentive, in the way of, a substantial Win Bonus? This may still be the case with many Clubs. Or on the other hand, in the present regulated climate, this kind of format just could not happen. Nor would the modern player accept this.However if possible....would it be a good idea?
  8. I don't know how many players are on DFC's staff (Maybe someone can help here?) But I would think, with the usual financial restraints on our budget, it's maybe a reasonable number. I'd expect many of them will not be on the highest wages. But on the other hand, they still have to be paid. And at the end of the day, it all adds up. Is it at all feasible to cut down on squad numbers? Or have we already reached that stage? It's never a good idea to cut down the squad to minimum numbers, knowing the problems that causes when we are overwhelmed with injuries. But would it ever justify trimming the playing squad even further, to free, even low paid poor players, & putting this towards holding on to the quality players. Fanciful idea ? I'd understand others who said it is all about finding the right balance. But I think I would accept the sacrifice of trying to work with a small squad, if it meant holding on to talented players.
