That's good to see the club is doing something.

My kids come home every term with a new soccer in schools thing but it's only fronted by Dundee United.

Dundee where on one of them as a joint thing but that must be two years ago now.

These kids are the next generation supporters. If they get coaching and meet the players form united, then they are going to like that club. The young lads will aspire to be them.

Really should be doing something about that.

You might find you have a lot of Friday night games due to this tie up with the BBC Scotland channel.  Kick off just after 7.00.

Friday nights are great. 7pm, not so much! 

7:45 would be a struggle but do-able. Aw well, all hypothetical at this point with McIntyre still there.

If McIntyre gets the bullet, I might consider getting a ST now. Wasnt ever getting one in top flight due to too many midweek games due to internationals etc. 

They are pretty much as good as your team are. If you are chasing the title and winning most weeks, while carrying a big crowd home and away it's fucking great. When you are scraping around trying to avoid relegation whilst getting pumped by Dumbarton it's fucking shit.

Sorry, you misunderstood my question @GAD.. Or I put it across wrong. Believe me, I know full well what following Dundee in the Championship is like. :lol:

someone obviously doesn't realise the playoffs only came about due to rangers being punted in an attempt to get them back into the big league asap....so you have rangers to thank for this 2nd attempt this season at coming up.

When Rangers died there was a place in the top flight.

Dundee, who finished 24 points behind Ross County in the First Division, a league which had no playoff between it and the one above, were also promoted.

So Dundee have Rangers to thank for a totally undeserved promotion (although I agree they should have come up rather than no team be relegated from the top league).

Sorry, I was having flashbacks to us being Dumbartons bitches for a season and a half and it obviously affected my reading and comprehension skills...

It's really just another thing that the Yanks just don't seem to have a clue about. They've no clue about football (and that putting a good team on the pitch makes all your other plans that much easier), no clue about the history and dynamic football in the city of Dundee, no clue about managers, no clue about marketing (isn't that what Americans are supposed to be good at?), no clue about how important it is to get to the youngsters in our city before they become supporters of THEM or become glory hunters.

So in summary then - they haven't got an effing clue.

This really is a good thing that both clubs do in the city. It really encourage's kids to get involved with football and their clubs.

My son was at it for a while but had to drop it for his boys club.

indeed we benefitted from the rangers folding...but I believe that Dundee took no part in the following discussions regarding the rangers punishment....but we've not benefitted for the last 3 seasons though;) we might need to thank them next season though :lol:

We had a season on par with this due to that promotion and that promotion arguably sent us back a few year. We were extremely lucky the Yanks came in that next season or we were fucked, yet again.

Didn’t go on Saturday and won’t be back until McIntyre has gone. The appointment of McIntyre completely sucked any enthusiasm I had from the start.

This season is done. It would take nothing short of Jesus himself showing up and banging in the goals.

I'm excited about the championship. If the yanks for whatever reason decide to stay, it could be enjoyable playing for something rather than just survival.

Anyone saw the latest with Wagner? A DAB asked him to do a video about us going down and he rejected them saying he wouldn't do it because he's 'friends' with Dundee FC.

I admire your positivity. The prospect of the Championship excites me about a much a the thought of Ann Widdecombe in a bikini.

Almost every time we've gone it's strangled the club, sometimes to the edge of extinction.

Much as this season and last have been abysmal I fear similarly abysmal afternoons at Dens if McIntyre remains against the fellow also rans.

It is a brutal league with a brutal effect on a club the size of Dundee.

It gives me the fear.

Was there on Saturday, and after that embarrassment, I'm the same as you, will not be back until this clown is punted.

Good point about BBC Scotland/Alba games on a Friday.  The 'good old days' were 3pm kick offs pretty much guaranteed.  Couple of pints in Frews and off to the match.

It produced one of the most honest, emotional crowd reactions I have seen. Out on our feet with a threadbare squad and losing to Raith Rovers we somehow got a win with a Neil McCann goal in the last minute hooked in with his back to goal.  I will never forget the crowd at the end. Everyone stayed. All on their feet cheering a team, some of whom could barely summon energy to walk of the pitch.

Against Raith Rovers?! Who knew?!
