'Why on earth would he even consider that? Even if he was a Dundee fan he'd struggle for reasons to go there.'

Tree House Tam furiously smacking his keyboard whilst on his old folks home 30 minutes of computer allowance. What a fud.

Good signinfs so far. Away the Dees.

THANK YOU.

The Tele saying Dundee considering giving Fraser Fyvie a trial...
Dundee signing FF appears a strange one, but only because of his fitness issues. Last time I saw him, he struggled.

Get a fit FF though, and it would be a brilliant signing. Still only 26, and technically very good.

Utd's loss would be Dundee's gain without a doubt.

I'd love Fraser Fyvie at Dens, but United wouldn't have released him if he wasn't absolutely done.

Yes but given his injury woes a deal that is play and get paid. We are very good at crock signing.

Dave MacKay joins as first team coach and head of opposition analysis. He turned down at senior coaching role at the Steading in order to come home. Good luck Dave.

'Head of opposition analysis'. 

What a job by the way.

Marshall is a squad signing at best. Byrne is a cracking signing and one I would have been delighted to see at Tannadice. 

The Championship is shaping up nicely this year.

Nothing wrong with giving Fyvie a trial. I think he's done but there's no harm in having a look. 

Buzzing for the season now, getting my season ticket at the weekend.

He’s been offered training facilities, that’s what it is.

Paper making something else of it, of course.

Fife Arab.

No surprises there. At least it's a change from East Angus and the surrounding hills.

Thank you.

Dundee seem to be building a good squad for this division so much will come down to the fitness of certain players and, the big one, the management by McPake and his team. I'm obviously biased but I would see United having the advantage on most sides given that we only need small changes to the squad and every other team seems to be going through a massive rebuild, but it is definitely shaping up to be an exciting league season.

I'll still stick to my thinking on the prediction thread and would say that the top 4 will be United, Dundee, Inverness and Partick.

I am convinced that the SPFL will kick the season off with a Dundee Derby fixture but to be honest I don't think either team will want that. In an ideal world it would be game 5 or 6 and both teams will have a bit of momentum behind them. That would also give us a better indicator as to what the season might bring for both clubs. If it was first game of the season it would be a 'baws oot' lottery of a game (which would admittedly be very exciting to start the season) but I think both sides would want it to be a few games in.

I agree that United definitely have an advantage and on paper, should win the league but we’ve been saying that for a few years now. After Falkirk’s implosion last year I honestly feel we could finish first or last, although like you I’m very encouraged by the players we’ve signed and the whole signing policy.

At least Dundee have gone for players who have direct experience in this division and of Scottish football. Hartley and the recruitment team at Falkirk thought by signing players from highly rated English youth sides they were going to surprise everyone, which they did, but for all the wrong reasons. I think Rubben Sammut, Chelsea's U23 captain signed for Falkirk and in his first interview said something like - "I am looking forward to playing men's senior football for the first time".

😂 fishing rod out again AM?

Marshall is a better left back than Jamie Robson and easily one of the better left backs at this level. Whether he can make the step up to the Premiership if Dundee get there is another question but Dundee must have some team if he's not a starter.

Upsetting to learn that Marshall is better than our 3rd choice left back.

 

Byrne looks a decent signing, be interesting to see if Dundee are willing to pay more transfer fees over the summer.

I agree with you regards keeping players fit deciding the league’s outcome. Maybe slightly biased but I thought Utd looked extremely poor in the playoffs and were very fortunate with refereeing decisions and 4 exceptional performances by your keeper, which according to my dab mate was very unlike him and he’s apparently horrendous at cross balls. 

If and it’s a big if, we can get the majority of the season out of Meekings, Davies and Nelson I think we should win this league. 

A lot being made of Utd’s budget but as far as I can see from last season’s evidence I’m glad it’s tied up on the likes of signings they made in January. 

Edited to say, I’ve just remembered Hamilton’s our goalkeeper 😔 we’re doomed if he’s not replaced!!!
