Tomorrow's Game May Decide Our Future for Next Season (Question Below)


Gedee

Recommended Posts

I have popped back & forward onto the forum today & added an occasional post...And checked out for new posts.

However,  just about each time (every hour on the hour) there has been "no new posts" except sometimes, one or two.

Members online today (like all week) it seems to me, number around the10 to15. Unless maybe I've missed something.

Have we all totally given up any hope on our Club?  Are you all...Angry, depressed, apathetic, really couldnae care less?

I'm specifically talking about Game tomorrow. But on a more general level. Does relegation mean, that's it for you?

Gedee. The forums are quiet. As you say not many posting or even lurking. Don't think any topic will provoke a major change. The game on Saturday and the results might not even stir things up. I'm not a pessimist by nature but there have been some pretty consistent voices saying "we're doomed" for quite a while. You can't blame them but the worrying thing for me is that they are creating an atmosphere of defeatism and seem to be dragging everyone down.

Was at the St Johnstone game and I thought the support was quiet. I hope that they make much more noise this Saturday.

It seems a quite bizarre ending to the season, and maybe a lot of fans / forum posters have been 'worn down' by our team's failure to hold onto the 10th place we fought well to get to, what seems like a long, long time ago now....as well as a combination of some unnecessary silliness & an otherwise deafening silence from the boardroom. There were a couple of weeks in February, when the the team were getting a positive reaction at Dens, and we were playing better, faster, and with a lot more conviction, and scoring a few goals (Killie, Livi, Hibs)....then it seemed to go backwards again, and the other two crept past us.

We have 5 games to rescue this, but I can't recall a quieter, almost resigned, end to a season. 

I thought the full away end in Paisley, noisy from 2:30 until halfway through the first half, was a hopeful sign, but again we've slipped back from that point, on & off the pitch.

I have no idea if the fans will get back into '5 cup finals' mode, and fill the north stand tomorrow, or if we're heading for a very timid end to the season. There's been very little of an upbeat nature coming out of Dens this last fortnight, though O'Sullivan's bit of the pre-match press conference on DeeTV is very positive & articulate....he believes the loan players are due the club for giving them this opportunity & that they are determined to repay that.

We so badly need to score first tomorrow, and to secure that elusive win....surely this would trigger a huge lift for all of us?  

As for next season, it seems inevitable that we'll be seeing a drop in ST sales, irrespective of which league we end up in. The fans seem unimpressed with the managerial situation, and signing policy, and the prospect of the kind of 'rebuild' we're likely to see under those circumstances....so not a lot to be encouraged by, so far.

I'd imagine, even if we stay up, a lot of us will be more selective, with game-by-game ticket/PATG decisions. Within our group of 6 (3 of whom aren't Dundee-based), it looks like none of us will be renewing the STs....but I think the constantly shifting match dates is as much a factor as price or entertainment value. None of us are 'giving up', though. After 60+ years, that's not a consideration.

I will certainly "Support them evermore" as long as I can .....and hope for some moment of glory in return!! The only thing that would stop me going was if they moved to a lego stadium in the North West edge of Dundee(And im being honest here so apologies if people disagree but that would be a step too far for me personally)

GSD, Another good post that makes good reading for me ... TBH, for reasons of heath (physical well-being, as well as my sanity)

I am trying hard to get the "balance right" although I am no' sae sure it is working? Part of me is preparing, for the excitement and

delirium, of a hard fought win tomorrow, & hope that from there, we can go on towards escaping the depressing thought of "DOON"

But I'd be a fool, not to realise, the odds & stats are against that possibly happening, & if the manager/his players dinnae come oot

focused & fighting, thon Dark Shadow is gonna envelope me, as weel as the hopeful, loyal thoosands of DFC fans & supporters:chaplin:

DFC, Dundee Manager & Players & Fans. Leave nothing on the Park. Blood, Sweat & Tears. We know, you know. We Can Do It :wub:

Of course that's the problem. What other entertainment industry wantws to sell you a season ticket for 19 performances and then says by the way we don't know when the performances will be held. i think the TV companies should be forced to broadcast their chosen games at 3pm on a Saturday if they are British games. So what if it costs the top boys money. The whole system is totally designed to make a few rich clubs richer and no one cares about us or Celtic or Rangers or Scotland.

Hi BC', I agree with everything you've said above ... There are are quite a few posters on the forum, who openly & honestly, have quite frankly said, they've had enough (And I certainly wouldn't be one to criticise anyone for doing so) Especially these long-standing Dundee loyal fans & supporters who have given DFC their time , energy & money over many, many years.....Like many of us, on here & all over, they must feel financially & emotionally drained, having endured a good kicking from the Club they love.

The Dark Blue Forum gives us a place to vent our feelings/emotions (Thanks John, Staff & Everyone) ...  Sometimes to share these few intermittent, occasional,

happy moments. But this season, mainly to "let it all out"...look for consolation & hope & a poster that might offer a wee comment or word, that might help us put DFC/things/life, in perspective.

I would never say to any poster ... "I told you so"... "Or you've now changed your tune"

Let's hope the result tomorrow, pulls us all together again in a Happy Hopeful Way:chaplin:

Whar's Cobra (And awe these ithers) when ye need him? Eh hope yir weel Freend :wub:

As always Wood, what an excellent, honest & well thought through post ... & I am no sure I can add anything more to it.

Thanks for given your time to put down the comments above in a step by step way...Controlled & withoot awe the hysterics.

This has been one hell of a season (for lots of reasons) But if we can get through it. Or even if we dinnae, it will get better :wub:

It's worse for us Auld Men Young ains hae time, energy, hope & stamina, on their side. & Us? Weel we're basically fuc**d :bouncy:

Hi Donny O ... Eh gave you a like for your opening comment (I guess for you, DFC & Dens Park just simply go together)

Although, I had some breaks in between, I can still remember my first visit to Dens on my fathers shoulders 70+ yrs ago.

It's no' really Our American Owners' fault ...But understandably tho' they will never get that history & connection we have.

They have certainly put their hands in their pockets But it's starting to look like Campie Project been maybe a step too far.

However freend, let's get back to tomorrows game Hope tomorrow is another "moment of glory" for you & everyone:chaplin:
