All things Dundee FC

I agree with this definitely but as ever if the service ain’t there might as well have a lump of wood up top, relying on the wings to put in good cross in or near the box as the guy is 6’2 also decent and quick with his feet from what I’ve seen of him so far , I feel like he reminds me of a striker just not sure who?

The fact he reminds you of a striker is a positive, we’ve had lots of guys up front who bore no resemblance!

I actually wonder if Rudden might be massive for us this season. He didn’t really set the heather on fire last season but he had covid and 1 or 2 wee niggles, plus he came into a team that was really struggling. A season (hopefully) in the Championship in a more confident team could be the best thing for him.

It was said when you signed him in January but he genuinely looked like he'd never seen a football for ages with us until he sclaffed a goal in after missing chance after chance and it all just clicked. I can't see any reason he can't do the same at Dundee, especially when he's dropping down to a level he's shown he can play well at already.

He did look far better with another striker up with him too but no idea if that's in Bowyer's plans.

Looks like somebody got into Dens and fucked about with one of the goals...

I was hoping I had deleted that before anyone had seen it @This Charming Man, as I had jumped the gun 🤣

It is actually Bobby Dailly, who was recently a youth player for Millwall, and is almost certainly on trial for the development squad. No need to be alarmed.

The courier is at it again, saying he is Christian Dailly's son https://www.thecourier.co.uk/fp/sport/football/dundee-fc/3455943/christian-dailly-son-bobby-4th-family-dundee-dundee-united/

Are you guys certain he isn't?

I did a quick google and it looks like he might actually be Dailly's youngest son. Theres a shutterstock image of Christian holding his baby son 'Bobby' in google images

They've actually printed and charged money for it :lol: 

I did think they'd just been getting their stories from here again but looks like it might actually be true this time

The ears are identical in the photos you shared, that's all I'm sure of.

Yeah, I'm sure he's the ex Millwall kid Ross posted the pic of, just not sure if he's Christian Dailly's son or not.

All the stuff on transfermarkt etc about Bobby Dailly says he's English and has been with Millwall u18's but nothing more.

Gally B has a very soothing radio 4 type voice. 

The middle aged wives of Dundee will be all over him. 

If Gal was blessed and bounced on Brian Clough and Peter Taylors' respective (football management gods) knees whilst his father Ian twice lifted the European Cup at Nottingham Forest, we're in good safe hands.

C'mon Gary, make them all proud and prove John Nelms' numerous recent managerial appointments so very wrong.

A guy on our forum suggesting Motherwell are looking at Jordan McGhee. Here's my thoughts:

Had a tough, torrid season in the Prem. Could easily be one of those that are too good for the Championship but can't manage the step up to the Prem. I personally believe it was injuries that ruined him being more invaluable to us last season. Injured during pre season then again early on and just couldn't catch up on himself.

Prior to that he's been a bawhair away from being our PotY (a tie between him and Paul McGowan was settled due to McGowan's longevity at the club) in his first season at CH, was the player that got our season going in his second as a CM doing all the running about in midfield for Charlie Adam and Shaun Byrne and helping out at RB in a pinch as well.

Due to last season, McGhee won't have as many people tearing up if he leaves, but he's one of our more invaluable players IMO, but as I say, might be one of those weird one's that struggles with the step up.

Would require a decent, modest fee but his versatility even if his not guaranteed quality would make it worth it for anywhere up to a £150k punt (possibly get him for considerably less).

Think he'd be best suited to a 3 man midfield or 3 man defence. Good with the ball at his feet. Would ideally need an absolute brute alongside him at the back though.

Hope it's not true.

One of my favourite players at the club, would be gutted to see him go. Like Marshall though, if a team is willing to pay ample money then it's hard to complain. However, I doubt he'll be going anywhere, as I can't see Motherwell offering a sum worth selling him for tbh. I'll be happy if I'm right. Also, might not even be true.

Yeah, I agree with both of you, wouldn’t want to lose him. Last season wasn’t the real breakthrough season I thought he’d have, more than likely not entirely fit. I think his versatility hinders him as well, I think he’d benefit from nailing down one position and sticking to it and for me that would be CH.

Often played out of position in my opinion last season. Even when, however, he was played in his strongest position he just simply wasn't good enough for premiership level. I see similarities to Iain Davidson in him.

At championship level, I'd be disappointed to lose him as his versatility would do us well over the season.
