  1. He will have been on a very decent wage at Reading, and each of his loan clubs will have been paying a chunk of that to take him. He’s been on loan five times since 2019 and scored 15 goals in 80 games since. That’s not exactly scintillating form. He didn’t look very good for Dundee Utd. He’s not the silver bullet some seem to think he is. I think he’d do alright, but he isn’t a realistic target.
  2. I think the fact he’ll want about £5k a week will be a stumbling block for every club in the division. Folk claiming we should get rid of Connell and bring him need to come along and join us in the real world. Has it not occurred to anyone that Connell is in all likelihood not being paid very much by us? That switch alone would probably cost the club an extra £15k+ a month. Not in any way, shape or form a realistic option. I’ve not read anything other than the posts on this page about the game, nor the other thread, but it’s the same knee jerk stuff after a defeat, although this obviously wasn’t ideal. Up until the game on Saturday, I think we had the joint best defensive record in the league. You don’t get to that after a third of the season whilst “needing an experienced head”. We were very clearly doing something right. We had a bad game. Move on, keep doing what we were doing prior to that - not losing very many goals.
  3. A good day out, pish result. Made doubly worse by the fact that I only realised we got beat 2-0 when I got on the train home. Was absolutely burst and have no recollection of the second goal at all.
  4. Makes up for the very obvious goal in the first half.
  5. I mean, BBC have shown two angles that show it’s over the line at half time, there.
  6. Darian MacKinnon is a right wee butterball now, eh?
  7. Abysmal decision. Ayr got away with that massively.
  8. What is the number 4 doing? Jogged in for a nice view of Akinyemi passing it into the net. Bizarre, awful defending.
  9. Dundee is a good away day. The Laurie Ellis Scottish cup quarter final is in my top 3 ever. Not too far away, direct train, plenty good pubs. Bring it on.
  10. Thanks. It’s not a massive issue for someone who really wants to go to the game. I’ll get a ticket this week and get the train up, but I’d be amazed if that situation hasn’t affected the overall away supports at Dens this season. If you’re someone who is on the fence about going, the thought of having to buy a ticket and get it posted out to your home alongside it being the most expensive day out in the league is probably enough to make you say, “I won’t bother this week”. I understand the conjecture about it being easy enough to do - it is not a massive problem - but it’s extra steps that no other club makes you do and folk will ultimately use that as an excuse not to go who would quite happily attend other away days.
  11. A couple of pretty weird replies, wasn’t expecting that. I’ll try another way. Why are Dundee the only club in the league who do this? I’m genuinely interested in the reasoning.
  12. I think I’ll head to the game on Saturday and pay in at the gate. Or maybe I could buy one online, as I can for every other team in the league? Perhaps I could buy a ticket from the office at the stadium in Dundee? No, I’ll need to call the office and get a £24 ticket put in an envelope and posted to my house, or drive to Kirkcaldy to buy a ticket during the office open hours. Seriously though, why are Dundee making it as hard as this to buy a ticket? Why are none of the usual, widely used methods not being offered? What’s the issue?
