Son, you've just scraped yourself into the Premiership, dragged by a 35 year old who is unlikely to have the legs to see out a season in the top league.  History tells us that you'll bob around the bottom of the Premiership for a season or two before being relegated again (what is it, 10 of the last 15 years in the 2nd tier?). The ref's whistle is still wet from the play-off and Nelms is going all Billy Big Baws about "elite" teams dictating to the rest because they earn the money. 
Although the sport connects us all, the way we do certain things and run the business is night and day.
Well yes, the Dundee way is to run the business unsustainably, go bust again and again, shafting creditors left, right and centre.

Reminder that Oor Bonnie Prince has a menchy still standing in Fintry.

Anyone know who’s been appointed Project Manager for Nou Campy?

Dont know if he was the actual Project Manager or it was just because he was one of the architects and involved with the club but Bob Hynd was the main guy involved with the consultation stuff before

Just saw the STV clip, glad to see some kind of update on the Nou Campy situation, though I was hoping for more.

Not that I’m advocating this for nou campy, but did we play better or worse on a plastic pitch?

The way the interview on STV news went it sounded like it’s a new appointment.

Regarding tomorrow's League Cup group stage draw, I think we're going to be the first seeds in our group thanks to the 5 European spots, as we're behind only County, United and Hearts in the North section. Would take Arbroath as the 2nd seed and 3 of the weaker unseeded teams, cheers.

Unless Livingston are shifting to the North section which I've seen mentioned, which I'd not be down with personally.

Can't get the clip, what's the update?

It just said that Nelms says that plans are still well on course with a project manager hired to oversee the proposed development, though doesn't give a name. They then cut to him saying he'd be fine with United groundsharing as tenants in the Nou Campy when it's built.

Ahh ok, I've not seen that interview. Could well be they've appointed a project manager for the build stage to liase between the architects and builders then I guess

Your MD's a bit of a p***k isn't he? https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/57271111

You're the p***k, you didn't read the article.

If you had read it it you'd know that he said Dundee are #Boxoffice and he had never heard of Falkirk until they did their best to avoid the play-offs.

Now f**k off back to the beach.

You support a team which has just produced the most spectacular example of bed-shitting in senior Scottish football since Morton absolutely collapsed in 03-04, and which also finished below a side which were 90 minutes away from the Lowland League 6 years ago. 

Sit down.

Let’s not allow these 2 strokers to impinge on the memory of a triumphant season which few would have predicted 90 minutes after it started. We came from nowhere to finish 2nd then destroyed Killie in the playoffs, not only that but playing a style of football that I’d certainly want to watch, a style of our own.
We are about to sign Griffiths, Snodgrass and GGS, build a state of the art new stadium with the support of our billionaire owners.
No wonder these parochial little oiks from the fizzy pop and bucket and spade leagues are gut wrenchingly jealous.

I’m still buzzing of my tits, Tommy Wright’s pus - fantastic.

Got to admit as a Red Lichtie fan and a selfish thing i was gutted The Dees went up as we will lose a lot of money over this.

2 capacity crowds at Gayfield plus 2 good away days up at Dens Park.

But saying that all the best to you in the SPL and one day there is no doubt we will see our friend Charlie Adam (just like his Dad Charlie Snr did) playing in the AFC maroon strip at Gayfield  under the Management duo of Rab Douglas and Sir Bobby Linn after DC hags up his bunnet.

Smokies & Wine 36-0 Ya Bass.

Sit down. 

Hold on a second here.

Morton's spectacular 03/04 collapse consisted of a 15 point swing to Airdrie over 13 games to the point they overtook us, and 23 points over 20 games to the end of the season. It was an unprecedented piece of bottle crashing.

Falkirk managed a 16 point swing to Partick in just 8 games.

Is it any wonder that Nelms doesn't like speaking to the media?
