  1. The 2018 Challenge cup final.

    McDiarmid on Saturday 24 March with 4.15 KO. I suspect that might be to do with when Alba starts broadcasting. With that constraint in mind, that’s a very sensible kick off time.
  2. The 2018 Challenge cup final.

    One of the Dundee grounds would mean sending both sets of fans another 20 miles along the same stretch of road, with both (more or less) having passed McDiarmid along the way.

    i see what you did there.
  5. Post split fixtures

    It depends. What's each team's current "balance" based on previous seasons? Dundee are 1 home game up at the moment because we got 20 in 2014/15 and 19 since. That means if there's a scenario where we (and/or others in the same boat) get 18 home games and that minimises triple-visits, they could go for that instead.
  6. The 2018 Challenge cup final.

    TV blackout doesn’t apply on international breaks, so they should make this Saturday 24th March at 3pm.
  7. ICTFC v Crusaders

    I’d be surprised if it isn’t. By far the most logical venue given the participants. That would give McDiarmid it’s tenth final, double the number of the next most-used venue (Fir Park).
  8. Football League 2017/18 season

    Some end to that game. Can’t beat a last minute derby winner/equaliser for #scenes.
  9. Have I got Local News For You

    Locals fail to understand “handbrake failure”. Twice. https://www.thecourier.co.uk/fp/news/local/dundee/602202/mystery-car-ends-waters-broughty-ferry-beach/ https://www.eveningtelegraph.co.uk/fp/shock-empty-mazda-rolls-middle-busy-dundee-road-almost-hits-cop-car/ The second one is particularly impressive for taking something so utterly trivial and making it sound like the biggest drama seen in the history of Dundee the world.
  10. Jags v Dundee 17/02/18

    Collum did go over and “have a word” yesterday. Which was ridiculous because if he’s time-wasting, it’s a booking. It’s not like speaking to a player after a foul, because there’s a sliding scale there between no booking, booking and red card. So if you’re just on the side of the former, a ref can tell you to calm down because you’re flirting with the line. With time-wasting, you’re either taking a legitimate amount of time, or you’re not. No grey area. Although there is an argument that there should be no such offience because if the referees are doing their job properly, they’ll add on as much time that is “lost” through these antics. Not that I’m complaining about Collum not adding the time on yesterday. Karma is a bitch, as Cerny will now be fully aware.
  11. I’ve not read every report written about yesterday’s Dundee v Thistle game, but all the ones I have don’t accurately reflect what happened at Thistle’s goal. They claim that Thistle’s goal came from Ryan Edwards heading it down - despite it being a clear handball from Cammy Kerr that punched it towards Sammon. Willie Collum even waived advantage as he gave the goal (meaning it would have been a penalty if the ball hadn’t found the net). Even if they didn’t see it in real-time (although I’m unsure why - it was as blatant as you can get) surely the appeals followed by the clear outstretching of Collum’s arms should have told them there was definitely more to it than a simple knock-down? EDIT: for the record, as I wrote this, I hadn’t yet read our official report. But I’m sorry to say that @rumple seems to have not noticed it either. Given his usual excellent standards, maybe I’m being harsh on the rest of the the press and it wasn’t as easy to spot from the where the press box is?
  12. All things Dundee FC

    He's pissed off the DABs with his two goals as well. Pure magnificence.
