I've added this to "Dundee Chat" as it will possibly have some direct relevance to DFC  & United (As well as all Scottish Clubs) should Scottish Football Body follow suit.

I only just picked up this news from a thread on Dundee Mad (Harry) early, this morning

This pandemic tragically will change everything about our lives for years to come. Although sport and football in general is secondary to our thoughts I can't see there being any professional sport being played much before September perhaps even later and by then everyone will want to restart life afresh and not look back. It's my opinion that football will do the same and this season will be scrapped with no champions, promotion or relegation. Just my opinion mind.

As you point out, in the great scheme of things in these terrible times, there are more important issues ... But thank you for your response & your opinion on Topic.

Null & void is the way forward for me @Gedee, I'll maybe shed (pardon the pun) a tear for our poor wee neighbours....................or maybe not.😁

I can only think how angry and let down I'd feel if my team was tens of points clear in the league and then denied promotion... and then I give a wee chuckle to myself! 😂

I agree, I doubt with any conscience the Dabs could be denied the title unless by on the field results obviously.

Another problem is this crazy 12 club league that everybody hates, it is likely to see another top club (Hearts) thrown on to the financial scrap heap. It’s only my opinion but the league format must be one that gives the teams from our high population centres Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Perth, Dunfermline and Dundee a large chance to survive and prosper. The league produces a poor product and empty grounds, losing a club like Hearts is not going to help, Hamilton, Livingston, Ross and St Mirren  combined home attendances of around 5000.

Null & Void?......or......

  • Celtic awarded title
  • Arabs & ICT promoted
  • Raith & Falkirk promoted
  • Cove & Edinburgh promoted
  • Brora & Kelty promoted
  • No relegation…..Brechin & The Hedge saved from extinction.

But….next season, 2 relegated from each league & return to current playoffs

😮 

 

......but we shouldn't lose sight of which day this is?  :ph34r:

Season null and void.

Dees win league in 20/21

Dabs lose out in playoffs.

That we scenario may rival the Doon Derby!

There was a hint of sarcasm in my post. Well maybe a huge dose of it!

I genuinely dont think SPFL will declare the season null and Void, Celtic will fight tooth and nail for the title to be awarded to them Rangers will fight any decision that does the above, Hearts as already stated will go the courts to fight relegation being decided whilst there is still games to play.

 United will probably challenge the decision if they are denied promotion as lets be honest here so would we.

 Whole thing is an absolute mess and the self interest of all the clubs will bring mega chaos to Scottish football. Sfa will shy away from it as they wont want to upset the old firm, and SPFL dont have the guts to lay the law down to them so it will be status quo unless UEFA or FIFA make a ruling on it, even then i foresee a lot of court cases in the coming months

Just my opinion

This post is spot on! I've said this previously but there is no chance they won't give celtic the trophy.. There is also no chance they will relegate hearts so they will make it a 14 team league with no relegation and dabs and ICT promoted. For the record I don't agree with it and I actually think it's a joke if this is what happens but it's the sfa so I wouldn't expect anything less. If your going to stop the season and declare the league over with the teams finishing in the positions they were in and give celtic the title then surely you have to relegate hearts? That won't happen of course because of the legal action that would be taken. Null and void is the "fairest" way but that will never happen. This post is meant if they can't finish the season which I don't think they will be able too.

      "Has being a Dundee manager become such a poisoned chalice that no decent manager is interested in it?" ....
      (That quote (Iain) is taken from  post under the Topic of Paul Hartley. And although I am not sure it justified a New Topic, I did not want to add it to other thread, in case I was going "off-topic" ... But the statement got me thinking)
      I'm putting it out more as a personal question, to get an idea of the character of some of our members/posters (And maybe to help keep the forum rolling along) So I suppose it could include just a general response as well.
      Assuming all things being equal and you felt knowledgeable enough to take on such a role as Football Manager, would the idea of applying for a managerial job with a Club (DFC in this case) that had a reputation of "poisoned chalice"... Graveyard for hopeful managers, put you right of from even considering !! I kinda agree with above comment and do think, some experienced managers would give Dundee the body swerve, with thoughts that...this is the kind of move that could  start the end of my career.
      But as I asked at the start, on general  terms... Just how would you describe yourself?
      Speaking for myself if someone says, it cannae done, it's likely I'll then give it a go
      (I'm not wishing to sound big headed. Because there are many times I'll definitely fail)

      The Topic Heading may give the impression, the The Dark Blue Forum has been awarded some "Very Public Award of Merit" for it's continued service to Dundee Fans.
      Maybe it should. And in fact, maybe it has. But this is no any special award of that nature ... I guess it is no more than a thankful acknowledgement and appreciation, of the time, work (And money) specifically John & Scott, but also  everyone else who has contributed in any way (& still continue to do so) to keep Our DFC Forum (And of course Our Club) the only one worth being involved in.
      SO WHAT BROUGHT THIS ON ... AND WHY NOW?
      During this pretty awful times of the past few months, I have struggled to maintain an interest in anything connected to football. On a general level, but also matters relating to the Club I love ... DFC. I suppose in some ways I have gained the benefit of becoming interested again in totally new & aulder forgotten pastimes, which has not only help me "just chug along" but has raised again my general enthusiasm & zest ... Well for life I suppose ... I am limited in what I can do some days. But that said I seem to be busier than ever...
      Out gardening this morning at 6.00 AM ...   "Jings whit's happening to me"
      Okay DFC friends, sorry about the diversion & rambling, so back to the Topic ...
      No surprisingly we're struggling at times with the current problems of the past few months. The health matters of course. But also on a much lesser scale "Football"
      No real DFC fitba news or/& weekly fitba games to talk or write aboot. Yet I go on the forum at least once a day & although I have cut back on my own contributions,
      every day I see the posts still coming in and be well responded to. Seriously, Well Done DFC Forum Lads and Lasses for your consistency of posting during the times.
      Many days I am struggling to post anything that might add interest to the forum, yet every day (not gonna embarrass anyone by mentioning the many names, or one
      very special poster) Yet, not only do these posts still keep regularly coming, the quality & range is really something special. Whether, serious. informative, funny, mad.
      The post keeps coming in, on a regular basis, I can see there is some real effort being made especially by some, to regularly introduce New Topics and take time with
      some very interesting engaging responses. As already said my own posts recently has been a bit spasmodic. But as the Mannie says "I'll be back" Meanwhile. Thanks.
      I'd suggest, if you feel a wee spark & you feel like adding a post (New Topic or a Response) Dinnae think twice. Just do it. Mind it takes time/work to hit my standards

      Just noticed that on Official ... Any Thoughts?
    • By Gedee
      So DFC Supporters & Fans, how has it been for you?
      For some, it seems, they might be into deep depression (heading onto madness) with the realisation just how much all things DFC  & Fitba, were an integral part of their life ... Maybe even their whole life. Whilst  others (include me here) have come to a realisation, that not only do I NOT miss it all so much, the absence of live action & the ongoing current news around regular games, this endless break, has opened the door for many other opportune, & more satisfying activities.
      When live fitba action is back maybe all this will change again & life will be back to "normal"
      But the nonsense spouted by the media experts & those supposedly running the game has left me flat, angry, and basically, comprehensively,  scunnered with the whole business ...
      I understand others may NOT feel the same. And although the quieter forum here still shows up some sound posts/posters, there is now an element of posts/comments, in my view, that shows,  that this frustration felt, for whatever reason, is being reflected on here by some posters, which (imo) is making the forum, not a very happy place to be just now (it may be just my opinion)
      Most of the current posting of political issues for "discussion" (if we want to call them that) are well outwith current football matters. They have left me frustrated and have done nothing to raise my spirits, or engage me in anyway at all ... There seems to be in some posts (imo again) a total lack of respect .... Which ill becomes us lads & lasses of the Dark Blue Ilk.
      Maybe, as I've suggested above, once the real football action starts again "everything will be back to normal" and it will all be behind us ... But I am not sure this will be the case.
      (Not sure what Tim Keyes is reading into this present debacle) Thanks all the same, for" "hingin-in" & continuing to give us your financial backing. It surely can only get better

      To be honest, I'm not sure there is anything in the above headline, that will affect us in any way.
      But as I came across it by chance "Daily Business" I assume it must be public, so thought I'd share.

      Any way wish him & his associates well in his new enterprise
    • By Gedee
      As In said above, that's maybe only a personal perspective of the present situation ... I certainly don't feel the waves of warmth from other Scottish Clubs coming over the horizon.
      If we were a Big Club, in the Top Six of the Premiership, or had a real focus, ambition, determination, with the guarantee of financial backing, then maybe eh widnae care, whit others thought aboot us. But we are definitely not nearly in that position ... We are where we are: With hopefully reasonably ambitious plans, but nevertheless a Championship Club, that may well be in the near future, fighting to avoid relegation, as well as fighting for survival, ad fans/supporters turn away & attendances drastically drop even further.
      The point I am trying to make is, as it stands just now (& I accept, there is maybe much better to come) I feel we are in a mess, which might be of John Nelm's making.
      It is only a few days ago, when most of us felt we had a leader. A decent, honest man in charge who showed he was willing to stand up to his principles. Is this still so?

      From The Online Courier ... He said:
      I love the club and I loved being there. The fans took to me straight away and we didn’t look back. “One of my proudest moments in recent years was coming on as a sub for Thistle at Dens Park and getting a full round of applause.“I had Dundee fans messaging me afterwards saying, ‘I haven’t seen that happen to an opposition player before’. That was really special.”

      "All of Dundee United's players and most of the coaching staff are among "a large number" of employees to have been placed on furlough leave.
      The government's Job Retention Scheme will pay 80% of their salaries up to a monthly sum of £2,500, but United will cover any shortfall in wages."
      If not, should they? It seems to make financial sense ... Any views?

      I took this Heading from the Official ... A bit vague, but there are more details to follow ...

      "Dundee boss James McPake has urged his players to up the tempo today as they look to get back to winning ways"  (Tele Quote.)
      Although I don't get to live games today, I do watch all there is to see, in the way of some broadcast live games, recorded games (full games & highlights) And of course I listen & read all there is to read about DFC, be it on TV, Radio, Newspapers, Forums, Websites.
      Based on that (and trying hard to be kind) although there are more than a few embarrassing games, when instructions & tactics appear to be non-existent, generally (& I might be stretching this) the players look to be committed, giving their all for the 90 minutes. As I said I might be "stretching this" for their are also quite a few games (many maybe) that whatever the questionable tactics may be, many of the players, simply appear ... not really too interested.
      If that is the case, ... What has today's manager got to do & say, to get them out there, act like professionals, show the Paying DFC Fans, they mean business, by showing some hard effort grit & determination for the whole of the 90 minutes !! I don't know what physical time & effort is put into players' training these days ... But the same applies there.
      (At the very least we need players 100% fit and ready & eager to go on Match Day ... To give their all for DFC Club & Fans.
      The days of the ruthless tough-talking manager has moved on...
      But are the conditions now, just too much in the players favour?
      Is it really all, only about money now?
      Today come out. And show us DFC
