Fail to prepare, prepare to fail.
I imagine most managers worth their weight have a pretty good grasp of who or what's available should they get a job and might even say what their plans are at interview.
So should we get someone(anyone) in we should possibly be see a few shirts in straight away or usual last minute panic
who knows with us I suppose0
With it striking june 1st with no gaffer at the helm is that’s us already a step behind or do you reckon even out of work gaffers do their due diligence and have a list of potential signings should they walk into a job at a moments notice?0
71 not the brewery we are tied with??0
Did Liam Fontaine not just sign a new contract?0

The Sun is running with the 5 being:
Peter Leven, Peter van der veen, Kevin Thomson, Shaun Maloney & Steven Pressley.
That's obviously rubbish but I'd go for the unknown van der veen out of that lot.
I know that Leven views Strachan as his 'mentor' so reckon he could be a valid shout at being on the shortlist along with Thomson. Don't believe the other 3 though.
Wouldn’t actually mind leven at all and if it’s true it’s actually reassuring that we are looking at someone beyond the over gate carpark0
Do you reckon we have a partnership with Peterhead(or any other club for that matter)?0
What are people basing kT on, cause if it’s his record at kelty Barry Ferguson is a shout?
john hughes is a no but also oddly not even the worst name on the list
im not not exactly In the Jack Ross be all,end all bandwagon so if we offer him something and he says no, move on.
Minority in this but I’d go for a somewhat recently retired player and stick a decent assistant beside him, NOT RUSK AND MCGHEE before anyone says anything0
Is it just me that finds the club shop either horribly over priced or just about always out of stock?
not much in the way of woman or young lassies wear either, I’m sure they like football too0

The reason we ended up with two strikers...
Absolute negligence from John Nelms coming to the fore again.
It's been speculated previously that McPake had his hands tied with the January window as Nelms was away at the start of the window (and again later on during it).
Is it any wonder we had a disastrous window when the most important month of our season, Nelms had went on a holiday? It says in the article it was club business but it was the rugby in Italy he went to.

Just away to post this, absolute madness I don’t want to say it cost mcpkae his job but at the very least it was a nail in the coffin he didn’t need, also makes sense as to when he was sacked if nelms pretty much came back from holiday after the window taking no notice of the fact we were on a 2 game unbeaten run0
If it is Adam I hope to f..k that it’s just as manager, non of this player/manager guff0
With results finally with us and relegation realised,surely if JR was incoming it would happen in the next couple of days if not then he’s not out guy0
Can I ask what happens if Jack Ross is appointed and we’re no better?
cause if he’s appointed and we are pants is it down to the fans or does it still count as the board being inept?0
Is it to his credit that Kerr has kept out DVC or was DVC pants?
Also oddly getting more confident in young Sharp as he gets more professional minutes0
Almost a year later any updates on a potential new app, or just stick with the tap talk route for foreseeable?0
Did we ever find out the attendance from the derby?0

Has ledzgins just up and left Dundee, there has been no mention of an injury or if he’s injured a comeback date whatsoever?0

Hello Dee’s, have just arrived in the city of discovery. Tickets purchased for tomorrow for myself and Mrs Marbella Dee. This will be her first trip to Dens and presumably last if it’s going on entertainment value. She’s harbouring that blind optimism that has plagued my life for years, I almost feel bad for her.
Anyway, have seen it discussed on here before but has anyone got any recommendations where I can take her for some scran and a few drinks beforehand? Can be in town or near the ground. Much appreciated.
Liquid lunch only, head to frews, they chill their tennents glasses sometimes and also next door to a bookies.0
So far so good.
has chapman been playing for the youngest team to build up match fitness at least, game time is the only reason I can see for him at least not being on the bench(other than generally being shite), how long is his contract?0
I’d have to disagree on Jack Hamilton I agree he’d cost us some points but surely he’s 10x the keeper lawlor,schneke or the other guy had a name like a pack of cigarettes Marlboro or something0
Is it possible Charlie was more detrimental to Mcpake’s squad more than is believed, I doubt he would be a mcpake signing0

I reckon McPake could be a good shout for the Edinburgh City job.
Better starting point for him and a lot less pressure0
All things Dundee FC
in Scottish Championship General Chatter
With hibs appointing Lee Johnson and raith appointing Ian Murray , the good thing is at least in regards to Scottish football we aren’t competing with another club for a manager with only Falkirk and Queen’s Park being clubs in step lower division without
