  1. 😂 Nobody should be that excited about signing Mullen. Fair play to the owners again though. Throwing a lot of money at it. Would that be 6 in and 2 out?
  2. Agree with that but hes not going down there to be near the first team anytime soon. He will get better coaching I'm sure and learn from the likes of Zaha , Townsend etc. He thinks thats a better route for him than playing 50-100 games for United before moving on. Bit frustrating as it would have been good to see him develop but its his career and he only gets one go at it and may have never got the chance to move to a premiership team again. We get about 300k plus a possible add on and hey thats more than dundee got for Kane Hemmings at his peak.😉
  3. Would like Arbroath to stay up. Pretty much all the other teams from 4th down have under performed and even ICT and Ayr points wise I wouldnt say have over achieved. Arbroath have added something to a pretty poor league this year. My stab would be Alloa bottom and Arbroath 9th but hope I'm wrong.
  4. Would almost rather we didnt sign anyone now till the summer. With the league all but won would like to see Sporle , Glass and Appere get plenty of minutes. The squad is more than big enough to see us through till the end of the season and there will be far more players available then. The two new signings from the same source as the Everton bid? 😉
  5. Nice piece on Bobby Linn that. Anyone know how many nights a week they train?
  6. He also won the header to assist for the second. 8 goals and 2 assists in 4 games with only 1 pen in that.
  7. Not at all. Course he can. He signed pretty ,much the whole team though so his deficiencies (as you said) could well be a poor set of signings. Certainly defensively anyway.
  8. Didnt think Utd were as bad as folk were saying first half. Distribution from Connolly/Reynolds was poor though and we had a lot of possession and weren't too far away but it kept breaking down with McMullan. Nicky Clark contributes nothing on the left. Would far prefer a Pawlett or Smith who with Robson bombing on can move inside and help the midfield two and still link up with the strikers. Much better second half though and a deserved win in the end. McMullan came into the game, Appere and Robson linked up well, Pawlett offered more in 20 mins than Clark did whole game and Shankland was the difference again. Still plenty of room to improve but an important 3 points.
  9. Was just away to say the same. Shop betting is the only way for some. Not taking the best price though out of Lads/Hills/PP/Fred aint clever.
  10. Hughes would probably be my least preferred option out of Wright, Irvine, Mixu and McCall. Inherited a successful side at ICT and fair play to him for keeping run going but didnt have to rebuild. Had a tough job at Hartlepool who were struggling and didn't manage to turn them round although they were in a really bad place. Would prefer someone with proven record of coming in and shaking things up. On the plus side if he was to come and do well I cant see their being a rush for him.
  11. McGowan , Rankin, Fraser, Spittle and Mckay for me. Half and half on the outfield positions , Keeper is a no brainer. Souttar should be in there as should Dixon but both have been poor this year.
  12. Aye its all opinions. I dont think Utd players have regressed as much as you think. I would put it down more to JMac and his inability to organise, continual tinkering and not having a clue what his best team/formation was. Not arguing that Dundee for the first time in a while have a number of players who would get in the United side and it may well be half and half for me and possibly edge it. I also think Dundee have a really good squad now though and should be looking at 4th or 5th. Should be an interesting day anyway.
  13. I am obviously in the minority that still thinks this as there is an absolute shit load of pessimism around tannadice these days but the squad that whoever inherits is nowhere near as bad as is being made out. McNamara had recruited way too many players of dubious quality and had completely lost the plot by the end but there is still a good solid squad in there. Just needs someone to come in and get them organised and fighting again. If that's to be Wright so be it. Wouldn't be too upset if he didn't come. He is playing it very well and his main concern looks to be getting himself a new far more lucrative contract out of Brown. I'd be happy with Mixu or Alan Irvine. The sooner the better though.
  14. Dont worry , you can add him to the next Fermers manager poll which will be up in the next few days.
  15. When was the last time a manager who moved between top flight clubs was successful? Cant think of one recently anyway. That's not to say it wouldn't work but I would be just as happy happy with Mixu, or Irvine.
  16. The books dont take 'shit tonnes' on these markets. They are very small interest only markets and a tenner on an outsider or 50 quid (if your lucky to get that much accepted) on a favourite will see their price be slashed. Also if you are in the know and get a decent price your account will all but be closed when they pay out. They don't have inside knowledge and he is only that price as United have made it clear they are interested in speaking to him. Dont think Wright will come. The Helsinki Flash to be unveiled to the worlds press on Weds is my call.
  17. Aye thats United. They are clueless but still a long way to go before we reach the levels of incompetency seen at Dens over the years.
  18. More cash turnstiles is always good but there will be hardly anyone there so just the ones in the GF being open would be fine. Keep JK closed. Having 3k possibly? fans in 3 different stands from an atmosphere point of view is crazy. Policing worry line is bollocks from the club. The GF would be at the very most half full and if they really are concerned about having too many bodies turning up to fill GF they are even more deluded than I thought.
  19. What a fucking farce for tonights game. Gonna be 3-4 k there and they are opening the Jerry Kerr and not opening the GF for pay at the gate. A few k split over 3 different stands is crazy. Absolutely clueless.
