  1. Aye, then let him go to Inverness for fack all with our best wishes. What a nob.
  2. Agree with all the above re Ryan Dow. Was a real shame he got that injury - his performance at home on the opening day (night) at home to Dundee was sensational. Good luck to him
  3. No sorry I meant the style worn by Jamie Squires when he scored a late equaliser at Pittodrie (quickly followed by an Eoin Jess winner in injury time FFS)
  4. I had that top and whilst I realise it was for a good cause I still regret giving it & loads of other classic tops away to Marv. The green & purple away top from 94-95.....the Jamie Squires black & gold........sad face.
  5. Was considering just paying game to game and taking the risk of losing my seat after 23 years so delighted to see there's a finance option. If my seat costs pretty much the same to allow youngsters to get in for next to nothing then that's fair enough as well. Well done to David Cook & DAFC.
  6. Folk who disagree with each other on the internet.........well I never.
  7. There's also a difference between managing a club before they were relegated & being in charge at the time they were relegated. You're having a fucking nightmare here. Best to give in. McPake did not relegate Dundee. Fact
  8. I'm glad Yogi didn't relegate us. Some boy.
  9. Blatantly copied from .nut - seems like a bit of a non-story to be fair. "I believe it is kind of the norm in football. Doesn’t make it right or wrong, but it’s not just us that do this. Also don’t think what’s being reported here is quite the full story. All players out of contract were called into one-to-one meetings 2 weeks ago and were told it was unlikely they would get new deals, as we were going to get rid of Hughes and weren’t even sure we’d have a new manager in to make any decisions on players before their contract was up. At this point, a lot of people with ‘sources’ on here were reporting Hughes was away. I believe they sent confirmations by text yesterday. Which, although not ideal, is fairly standard as a lot of players are on holiday at this time and there have been complaints in the past when players have been asked to come in when they’re supposed to be off - particularly just to be told their contract isn’t being renewed. Can’t win, can you? Its not really comparable to a redundancy. It’s the end of someone’s contract. They’ve been free to talk to other clubs for around 6 months, were told 2 weeks ago it was unlikely to be renewed and people like written confirmation of things these days. As I say, in an ideal world, everyone would probably have received a more professional message - phone call, meeting etc. But we are far from the only club that operate like this. I also believe that some players were told that if they don’t have a club by pre-season, they can come along and try to win a contract from the new manager. This was also mentioned in the meetings."
  10. Disappointed to hear if it's true but I'll wait & see what the club/manager has to say. In any walk of life dealing with people like that is just not on.
  11. We had no idea that this was the case so thanks for that.
  12. There's a shock - you'd argue with your own shadow.
  13. When we were good, he was outstanding. Proper captain material. When we were pish (a lot) he was just as pish as the rest. Still would've signed him up if we had the chance.
  14. Smiley face emoji to your own stupid post is a starter for 10.
  15. See you've finally found someone who doesn't think you're a total fucking walloper. Go you.
  16. Again, tho - it doesn't matter who we appoint there will be a negative side to their careers to date.
  17. So you were 100% convinced he would get us out of League 1 at the first time of asking. And utterly convinced McIntyre would 3 years later win us the Championship? Maybe it was the seasons before with Potter & Kenny that scunnered me, much like now, but neither floated my boat. However eventually they proved themselves & I'm willing to accept there's a chance, given the right backing, that McPake can do the same.
