Sons' sorrow


Recommended Posts

Have to say well done to all involved as I'm loving those kits. Can I justify buying both? Probably not but it's an anniversary I suppose.

As has been said having a proper launch night for it is a great idea. It should hopefully build a bit of excitement for the season starting and going forward. 

I'm curious about the whisky as well and if anyone is taking any ideas I'd happily pay to attend a tasting once it's available

I wonder about the number on the back of the actual strips.

Will we be able to just have a wee number between the neck and top of the band, as per tradition, or will modern rules mean that we have to have a bigger number that goes over the bands?

Many thanks for your kind words, on behalf of the 150th Steering Group they are much appreciated.  A wee taster of the gold polo shirt - I can even provide the Pantone colour code 😉

Will there be chubster sizes? XXL

At last, back to the most iconic strips we have ever had - steeped in (fairly recent) history but strips pretty much all of us have wanted back.

Very well done to everyone connected with the best decision the club has made for some time.

As regards decisions, and I'm biased here, the one made by the club to invite a core committee of four of us to form a Steering Committee to plan and manage the 150th Anniversary goods, dinners, exhibition, etc., has probably been the correct one as it would have been a very considerable undertaking whilst also dealing with the day-to-day running of DFC.  The Chairman and Board of Directors have thus far endorsed all that we have presented and have underwritten the initial costs so absolute fair play to them - we are collectively trying to ensure that this big year for the club is accorded due status.

The return to the 'liquorice allsort' design which was first aired in season 1964/65 was an easy one and we were delighted with what Macron offered - the supplier has high hopes that it will also sell well amongst football strip enthusiasts.

Another couple of merchandise pics to whet the appetite:-

That bobble hat would look rare on me when I’m slicing one off the first tee in the middle of December. I will absolutely be dabbling in one of those.

Loving the new kit designs. Especially the home one. Can we just keep that moving forward like Celtic/Madrid etc and just make minor changes each year?

Also seeing big McGeever in the shots is building my confidence a bit more.

There is no double the manager is need to improve on last season - the players were guff but his tactics and seeming inability to coach the players cost us games.

But now starting to look forward to the season.

Plus 1 for the whisky.
