All things Dundee FC

As I stated previously, I hope Bowyer is not underestimating Scottish football.

I’m in this movie. Any old jobber from England will cake this league etc.

Based on Bowyer's post match comments, I don't think he's planning on taking the League Cup too seriously. Said he was disappointed he couldn't field some more trialists in it.

He’s playing it down. 

Don’t worry. GB knows what he’s doing.

I don't see his comments made as playing down the league cup to be honest. The season starts ridiculously early in Scotland and this won't be something Bowyer is accustomed to so much. He needs to be sure on the trialists he is bringing in and fielding them in actual competitive games which are the best gauge he can get as to whether they are worth of a place in the team or not. 

Friendlies mean f**k all in the grand scheme of things except for playing time and fitness.

To be fair, I've just had a read of the article and I don't think it's as dismissive as I first assumed it would be. It comes across more at slight frustration about not getting more of a chance to try out the trialists in matches rather than a dismissive take about the importance of the game. Considering he's got just one more friendly to try trialists in, and it's a more tough opponent in Blackburn, he'll obviously have wanted them to get more game time, especially since they've only just started their trials. Wouldn't be shocked if they played in the game against Lochee United on the 20th or if we hear about bounce games to try and get them more up to speed with the team.

I'm not as concerned as I was at first at least, should be taking any opportunity we can to batter Hamilton anyway.

Just seen this. Pretty much what I said.

Also...that home kit gets better and better every time I see it. Could be the best in a good few years. Scotty Allan would look delicious in it.

Per Bowyer:

  • Max Anderson has been dealing with a groin niggle, should be fine and available for Saturday.
  • Jordan McGhee dealing with a minor ankle injury, but nothing too concerning. No mention of any outside interest.
  • Adam Legzdins has been given the green light to return to training, will hopefully be fully fit and available in a couple of weeks.
  • Jay Chapman is still in North America due to paperwork issues, Bowyer has had discussions with him over his return. Seems we still fully expect him to be back.

This is excellent news.

I hope Chapman gets his chance.

Totally agree, although would add - hope Chapman gets his chance and isn't utter pish after waiting this long!

The cynic in me suggests he would have already if he was good enough.

You would think, however first he had a manager that played Griffiths constantly ahead of Cummings then he had Mark McGhee.

I think he might, going by @RandomGuy.'s graphs, be a good attacking midfielder.

Very true. There's also maybe the possibility that he's best as a no.10 but in our predicament last season that was a luxury we couldn't afford and so opted for more defensive options.

I remember Chapman playing 1 game, think it was against Motherwell away. He wasn't amazing but I don't remember coming away thinking he was a bad player. My memory may deceive me, however.

Zak Rudden has made his goal targets public by saying that he wants to double his last championship tally. Aiming for around 18-20. I like the confidence and I'd lick his baldy napper if he was to come up with that many goals. 

Personally, watching him last season, it was hard to see where goals come from but hopefully new manager, new tactics and new pairings mean he can get better chances in front of the sticks.

I can’t really explain it, but Gowzer looks like Minnie Mouse.

I saw a photo of him on Instagram that is making me worry that his trip to Turkey may not have been worth it!  He is, however, looking fitter than he has been recently.  As many of you may know, I’ve not been his biggest fan the last couple of seasons but I think he will prove to be a very important player for us this season.

When i saw him at Peterhead on saturday thought the team bus had maybe had to stop at the big hoose in Peterhead to free him on the way past 😜

Encouraging, short interview from Gaz on Twitter. Hard not to like the guy so far. Our only actual signing to date offers a bit of promise. He’s not a mumbler and seems capable of using both sides of his mouth. Quietly optimistic.

Aye I like the new gaffer as well. Only downside is things are a lot quieter on here these days since we stopped being The Cinch.
