Yes.
I've just realised I've written sell-on clause when I meant release clause.
How would anyone ever make it in the game if they thought they were going to be on the scrapheap in a few years? If you've got belief in your own ability you make the move. If you think you're just going to sit on the bench and don't move to a bigger club then you don't have the correct mindset and will never progress in the game. 


Maybe. Maybe he has learnt his lesson from his time at aberdeen and thinks if he stays at Dundee utd for another season then he will be able to move to a bigger club as the number one strikers. He would be third choice at rangers in a team that plays one up front. However stranger things have happened

Surprised to see so many negative posts by Dundee fans. Yeah, you’re not going to win the league or finish above Dundee United but you’re heavy favourites for second right now. Which, rivalry with United aside, is a very good season whether you go up or not.

Finishing 2nd would be a very good finish imo but say we go up through the playoffs we come straight back down the season after and we would take another 4 wallopings from United in the process. But all that is speculation and theories because I dont think we will finish 2nd and mcpake wont see the end of January as the dundee manager.

Isn't the court case in February? If things are going tits up in the New Year I reckon we'll see Nelms as a prosecution witness to avoid yet another pay off.

Honestly, I couldn't agree more Dee Man.

I obviously can't comment for Dee Woman, however my This Charming Woman twisting my melon regarding my time spent posting today justifying why Lawrence will be gone come January.  Unless of course he lands at her beloved Stoke City!

Thank you and best regards

I'm not a fan of McPake's tactics or team selections, but, if, and I know it's a big IF: we had won the two derbies we'd be three points clear at the top. IF we'd even drawn the two derbies we'd be only three points behind the Filth. That shows that we're doing reasonably well against the rest of the league.

The football, however, is turgid.

Don't agree with the 'utd have bought the league, have better players etc' we  have as good a first team as them imo, it's the tactics, stupid formations, that are killing us.
Thank you.

Pisssing myself, not one of your players would get in our team!

Mind the gap! 🤣🤣🤣

This is relating to views that are a page or 2 back.

You have a rookie manager making rookie decisions / mistakes. He’ll learn.

Chopping & changing managers 10/12 games in rarely helps.

Trust me, but then again punting managers long after you should’ve has humped us too, so what do I know eh

Right now, we're on course for 58 points if we keep going at the same rate. I think we've picked up form wise and do better than that, probably around the 65 point mark. If that's right, it's not a horrific attempt at a first season down, not many teams do rebound automatically and last year was a particular disaster that gave us very little in the way of a squad taking forward (unlike the sorts of Inverness and County who maybe continues with 7 or 8 players who had finished the season before, even us in 13/14 were similarish in that regard).

I think McPake has probably started to get some cohesion going against the poorer sides and we're looking a lot better and not playing into their hands with a big hoof but against United, the quality level is that bit higher and he's not really sussed out how to adapt when they don't let us play the same game.

The worst thing for this season has been that our arch rivals have raised expectations. Neilson inherited a squad with a few decent enough players in it at this level and transformed their form from Csaba level to something that would have seen them likely win the league over a full season (instead coming a penalty shootout away), he's then been given license to add a fair bit which has included a lethal and young goalscorer and then he's had experience doing fairly well in Scotland before. If they don't reach 80 points, I'd be surprised. I'd prefer we landed a few fists on them and don't capitulate in the next showing but I think we've got to be reasonable in how we judge this manager, he wouldn't have been my choice and I'd nearly wanted him punted V Thistle but if we've went down this route, I see little value in hitting reset in November given the circumstances.
