What happened?! Mods usually don't like backtracking on bans.

Glad to see you back though!

Cheers man. Commuted to a week on the naughty step. Felt a perma-ban was a bit harsh anyway tbh. Hopefully Asim gets back as well, I can't believe he got binned. In fairness to whichever mod binned me I had regularly been a bit of an arse in that sub-forum.

Can't wait for Bowyer's explanation in the pre-match press conference which should come tomorrow. It would usually be on a Thursday, but I didn't moan because I assumed we'd be very busy tonight, can't wait to hear what the fucking excuse is.

Surely just our usual spending 95% of a transfer window dicking around then end up trying to rush things through at the death. The only difference this time is that we haven't signed some jobber from Chesterfield or something.

Nice to see you back.

Cheers man

The trolls there were binned permanently - no surprises that a new alias has appeared - joining the rest of the puddle drinkers on my ignore list.

Surely this is par for the course though:

  • Shite Manager - throw money at him
  • Shite Manager - throw money at him

  • Apparently sensible appointment - Sorry m8 we're skint

I hope bowyer doesn’t get binned before he has time to build his own squad. Feels like this season is going to be a slog and January window is notoriously pish for players. I’d give him next summer as well even if we don’t go up. It feels like the board don’t want promotion this year seeing as they blamed last years relegation by being in the top flight too soon. Bowyer also mentioned aiming for the playoffs when he joined didn’t he?

GB hasn't really had long enough to figure out his best team yet. There are times that we look pretty decent, even last week at Ayr we looked fine until the goals went in and we now have Ashcroft back who is more than capable at this level. I think we should be competing come January, I can still see lots of teams taking points of each other with no runaway leader. That's when we need to be strengthening and I'd much rather GB targeted some really good ones in Jan (potentially pre-contracts that can lead to signing in Jan) than the left overs from this transfer window

I didn’t see anything from Dundee to make me think “shit they need signings or they’ll be in trouble”. In truth I think McCowan going off had a big impact and then McGowan being subbed changed it even further. You had nothing left in midfield and once we got a foothold we just ran over the top of you. If you can get Ashcroft in for that big haddy Sweeney and keep Rudden, McCowan and McGowan fit then you’ll still be in the mix come January. That’ll let you see what you definitely need and can try and address it.

You’re a million miles ahead of what Dundee United were when we regularly pumped them in this league and we were quite a bit better back then as well.

I thought the squad was largely good enough, with the right signings in particular areas, to go back up but Bowyer all summer has talked about getting new faces in the door with the days coming up to the deadline saying he needed a fair number in. I think I remember him saying 4?

I'm all for not bringing in players just for the sake of it but when the manager is telling you where team needs strengthened...

Whatever way it is dressed up it's a failure not to get some faces in yesterday.

There's a story in the courier today. Its just their speculation for now though - does say we still have Chapman though @Girth https://12ft.io/proxy?q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thecourier.co.uk%2Ffp%2Fsport%2Ffootball%2Fdundee-fc%2F3654844%2Fdundees-deadline-day-frustration-what-happened-next%2F @Girth

I think there's something more with Chapman, maybe issues with his private life. For someone who constantly posted on Instagram, he has not posted in months.

They are saying passport problems but I suspect you are right given he also seemingly wants away. We supposedly also want to let him go so fk knows why we didn't let him leave over the window

Yeah, you would think there would be some kind of contract cancellation.
