    That's mintertastic from Bain once again. As the stats proved, we'd have been in the mire if he stayed on.

    If Livi came up, they'd be the Brechin of the top flight.

    Oft. Nah. Just nah. He's utterly rancid IMO. Really poor keeper that has ideas above his station. That being said, I remember once being extremely upset as he dribbled from his goal deep into the Dundee half in the John Brown era. Parish is comfortably better IMO. If Partick get relegated, I would absolutely Randy Marsh it if we got Cerny. Outstanding keeper. And I'd love to be on the other side of the seethe that his time wasting generates. Wouldn't thank you for Fox or McCarey. Neil Alexander is still a cracking keeper but he's 40. So since we don't have an agreeable option, let's just get Speroni, yeah?

    That's a major indictment on Bain's organisational skills IMO. Our defence has been chopped and changed, Parish thrown in half way through the season and Bain with what is likely over a hundred more appearances than Parish and it's that close. And I don't really think Parish is great, I'd like us to hopefully do better. Bain got away with a lot because he pulled off some stunning saves.

    Parish must have nearly kept more clean sheets in 6 months than Bain did in the 3 seasons for us. Bain was amazing in his first 6-7 months but has absolutely zero organisational skills.
  6. Least you're not bothered.
  7. Ross County 3 points behind the play-off spot, but with a massive win against Dundee last weekend, they have renewed hope. County went into last weekends fixtures with a feeling that if they lost, they were dead and buried. It's funny what a difference a 1-4 mauling can do for one's confidence. Partick Thistle The team that has hovered in the 'danger zone' for the longest period this season. A team that was crippled by injury and don't look up to much, despite having much the same squad as last season which stormed into the top 6. Hamilton Accies Currently keeping Partick Thistle out of the play-off spot, but have 2 games in hand. Rumours of admin abound though. Will this be the season they run out of luck? Dundee FC Stop start season for Dundee. Top 6 budget, woefully underperforming. Lost Jack Hendry and Scott Allan on deadline day, remains to be seen whether we can kick on without them. It's going to be particularly hard to utilise our playstyle without Hendry to lead from the back. A 1-4 defeat by the bottom club sparks fears. St Johnstone A team in freefall currently. A strong start to the season has left them in a position more comfortable than their form suggests. Still 2 games in hand over a lot of the sides below them, but look ever increasingly like getting dragged into the battle. I'd like to say Kilmarnock and Motherwell are just about safe now (Unless Killie lose Steve Clarke so won't include them in this.)
  8. Quick Question Thread

    What was/is (I don't know if it's a thing anymore) with postmen just throwing 100s of elastic bands out in the street?!
  9. Livi favouring a hit and hope style which is causing United all sorts of problems.
  10. The Wrestling Thread

    Reckon that's Kane pretty much retired what with winning the Republican race. I read that Knox County hasn't elected a Democrat since 1940 so he's pretty much a shoo-in to be mayor.
  11. All things Dundee FC

    Any clue on the club?
  12. All things Dundee FC

    Scott Bain, Kevin Holt, Jon Aurtenexte, Julen Extabeguren, Kosta Gadzhalov, Nicky Low, Mark O'Hara, Jesse Curran are all out of contract in the coming weeks. Other than O'Hara, I don't think there'd be an ounce of disappointment if we lost all of them. I'd like Holt to stay but we need a better LB.
  13. All things Dundee FC

    I like Parish. He's probably the nicest keeper we've had personality wise since Speroni. He's not the best keeper but he's not the worst either. Probably lower end Spfl Prem keeper.

  16. Dundee United 2017/2018

    Robertson is a weird one. I was too busy thinking about whether we'd survive the year or not at the time probably but I can't remember him being heralded as anything more than a decent prospect by you lads. He didn't receive near the hype Gauld, Goodwillie, GMS, Armstrong et al did over the years. Am I missing something? Perhaps he just passed me by! Was Dixon at the club the same time as Robertson?
  17. I'm not saying this as a pop or pulling a Rodger - but are we at the stage where Nazis are fair game without people getting all upset? Suppose we are soon approaching about 90 year. Mad. Anyways as you were!

    If they relaunched the good stuff, I would happily pay this on a regular basis.
  19. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Seriously?! There's first teamers at Dundee in the Premier that aren't on that. You deserve all you get if that's the case.
  20. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Barry Smith might be a shite manager for you lot, but to question him as a human is just wrong tbh. As it is when most managers get their personality questioned. So he didn't apologise to the fans in a post match interview? So what? He's probably hurting as much if not more than the fans with the realisation that he's not only the reason for a thousand and odd people being disappointed, but he's cost players he's close to their job and more than likely cost himself a future full time career in football. The way managers get treated in football (Unless they're John Brown) is appalling. That being said, it's hard to see where you go from here. For the good of the club alone, Smith needs bulleted IMO. Fine lines between getting you promoted and not but that's football. Regardless of who is manager, I think the bigger question for the future of your club is whether you stay FT or not. An ambitious board would take the hit next season as you'll surely canter to the league regardless of who is in charge if FT.
  21. Dundee v Hamilton

    I was just posting that to test out if it'd been changed by the word filter! Sorry, didn't intend to come across like a Dougie Imrie.
  22. Dundee v Hamilton

    I've seen the word tear spelt as tare about 4 times on P&B in the past 2 hours or so.
