  1. Past hour
  2. All things Dundee FC

    You sent abusive messages to me because I gave your cat a red dot. "Stab fellow Dee's in the back"?.....I think you need to take a look in the mirror, and while your at it book an appointment with a psychologist. You have come across very badly in the last couple of day and trying to deflect your own deficiencies onto others is adding to your embarrassment.
  3. 'Football' journalism is written by people who can't write properly for people who can't read properly about a game that isn't played properly, to paraphrase some 1960s genius who might be Frank Zappa. Every now and again I'll come across aspiring journalists who want to be 'football writers'. That depresses me. I'd much rather they were good all-round writers who knew a bit and who could turn to sport. Old Firm fanboy garbage drives me up the wall. How many of these guys really want to 'journalise' instead of peddling PR and press conference guff? Rant over.
  4. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    You and logic are like chalk and cheese.

    David Hopkin would be a good appointment I think.
  6. Your Club's Top 5 Arseholes

    I was at that game, and it did epitomise the first half of that season - SOD and ATS were great wing-backs, and that was the day we knew we'd be near the top of the table. On the credit side, Ratnamara played champagne football at home for half a season (from memory, he signed SOD but most of the rest of the squad were McCall's players), and put us in a position to contend for the league. Yinited got a similar short spell of silky football when he moved, to a strong squad of talented players... which he dismantled. On the debit side is everything listed on this thread - chiefly his graceless, classless attitude when he left under a massive cloud and bad mouthed Thistle, his money-grubbing, plus our dodgy away form - which Archibald sorted out so that we ended up winning the league very comfortably and winning loads of games we had in hand, much to Morton's surprise. Who knows if we would have done the same if Ratnamara had stayed to finish the job; it's certainly doubtful.

    No chance of getting a pub in Kos to put it on - they've all either got the golf, F1 or cricket on. Do a deal, get a few other football fans and say you'll spend copious amount of euros if you put the football on. Job done.
  8. Nathan, 17, from Nottingham, reckons his Gran could score 40 goals every season in Scottish football. Surely worth a punt?
  9. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    On the same topic, Shamrock Rovers first choice goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu is still 16 years old, keeping veteran Alan Mannus on the bench.
  10. The Great Big Kilmarnock Thread

    I can't remember him, was he any good? Why did he leave? Do I need to drink less?
  11. Dundee United 2018/2019

    Tommy Wright would be insane to touch that job.
  12. Whitlets vics

    Don’t know him personally, but anytime I’ve seen him, he have very little time for others, walks past people without a bye or leave.
  13. The St. Mirren FC 2018/19 Thread

    He only got a short amount of time but in that time made a decision that instantly made most folk (Stubbs included) go 'nope'. The ball broke about 22 yards out on his left foot and he had a clear run and would definitely have got a shot away if he'd just taken the touch with his left to set himself. Instead, he took it onto his right and ran straight back to where the one and only Sunderland player was, who easily dispossessed him. It was a godawful choice to make and sort of summed up that lack instict you'd at least like to see in a potential centre forward.

  15. Dundee United 2018/2019

    I am not sure who I would want to see come in just now if Laszlo left. The names that keep springing to mind are Stuart McCall, Tommy Wright or David Hopkin, all would be a vast improvement on what we have now, but I do not know if any of them would be interested. It is a no to John Hughes especially after his disaster at Raith Rovers and I would also be uncertain about an unlikely return of Peter Houston.
  16. Silly thing to say.. I think there’s just an understandable concern after the trials we had last season with the goalkeeping position that we ought to have found an experienced keeper rather than gambling again on an unproven loan signing. In fairness to McCall, there really weren’t that many obvious candidates out there. I also worry about the terms of these loan signings, where there are financial penalties for not playing them even if they aren’t cutting it. There was more than a suggestion last season that we had to pay Ruddy’s wages if we chose not to play him, which became unsustainable towards the end of the end of the season given his form - the goal he conceded at East Fife was one of the most unprofessional things I’ve ever seen - no surprise to me that Ruddy never played again for the first team after that game and was quietly punted back to Wolves.
  17. The Great Big Kilmarnock Thread

    Easy to see why someone would lie about having played for Killie. They’re an excellent club, with great staff and passionate fans. I certainly enjoyed my time as manager there in the 90s.
  18. Aye. They two starting looks good, but any combination of the three would be a nightmare for centre halfs. Nelson isnt exactly shy in getting stuck in and wins his fair share of headers. Gives you plenty of options of style for different opponents which is what Hartley wants. If we got Nelson in on a full year loan, I'd be confident enough going into the season.

    Ooft! since when did the highland league become snobs? I can’t beat them in 3 attempts so I will spit the dummy and slag their facilities. Hahaha he may be right saying we are pish, it’s all about opinions. If that’s the case though, the facts are McMannus and his team must be really pish.
  20. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Tbf, the standard in the Premier Division in Ireland is probably similar to our Championship. Joel seems to be doing well now he's in the first team. I was quite happy for him to be given an opportunity given we had complete no marks like Johnstone and Roberts ahead of him in the pecking order.

    Remember folks ignoring your race engineer is because he is such a great racer
  22. Heads Gone (The 8MileBU Awards)

    And that’s coming from Magee. Shit just got real.

    Greeny from me, to counterbalance the red dot you'll get from Marshmallo for bad mouthing his da.
