All things Dundee FC


Recommended Posts

Not to play devil's advocate (though I do enjoy doing that), but returning to professional sport from a ruptured achilles is closer to a full year. Not saying I'm happy with what we've got from the deal so far.
I'd 100% say though that I'd have binned everybody, Adam included, before getting rid of Cummings. How he of all people were driven out of the team is a travesty and every goal he nets in Australia has me seething. Not at him though, hope he keeps getting better. Fucking McPake, man...

Cummings definitely didn’t get much of a chance, and when he did he scored more goals than any other striker we had on the books, as he’s again proving I’m Australia. To be fair it seems he’s been ‘misunderstood’ at a lot of clubs in his young life!

I hope Sheridan comes back and plays a vital part in our procession back to the big league. If he doesn’t he’ll be getting a proper cunting from me too.

Cummings was another massively useless piece of man-management by McPake and again cost us a striker who actually scored regularly. It's not that long ago Danny Johnson was pushed out of a team where he was about the only genuinely regular goalscorer by McPake. Glad to see Cummings doing well though.

Mcpake playing him out on the wing should have been a sackable offence itself and you're totally right RE Johnson. Shambles.

At least with Johnson it was largely because we'd managed to bring Hemmings back. Cummings was shafted aside for inferior players, at that was before he was outright punted from the team in a ridiculous move.

With zach Robinson being a somewhat decent loan signing, who was the last loan player we had where we actually thought I wish we could keep him permanently?

I suppose McMullan?

Before him is harder, Efrem and Shinnie perhaps?

I quite liked Scott Wright while he was here.

Would have bit your hand off to keep Seny Dieng ahead of Jack Hamilton.

Back in the 80's we had Iain Ferguson (had left Dens two years previously in '84) and Derek Ferguson in 88' on loan from the club formerly known as Rangers.

Both these fellers would probably have been regulars in today's current Scotland pool call-ups, imho.

Latterly, Scott Allan was always a level above anything we had available when he was on loan and probably controversially Simon Murray, on loan when the Scott Allan loan was terminated would still offer more than our existing striker options.

Assume GB knows who Greg Stewart is come January, lol.

No apologies for the pic from the 80's.

I grew up about 50 yards across the road. Used to go to the sweetie shop on the right of this photo for 1/4 bags of boilings. Anyone remember the original Luigi's Fish Bar just off to the left?

Awesome list Ludo, great work my man.

The contents however remind me of a scribbling on a toilet cubicle wall on a major local building site when I was a very young man in the 1980's.

Something along the lines of, "From down the glen came Charles Gray men, a bunch of fairy dancers, one in ten were time-served men, the rest were fucking chancers."

Pretty much sums up 90%+  of the above 'professionals'.

Regards.

Ianetta's? Always knew it as Ken's, who would sell fags to literally anybody of any age. One of the last places I can think of with shelves of sweetie jars like that.

I was too wee to know it by name, but aye, the place with aw the jars of sweets. My Godfather always had a bag of horehounds on him he'd bought from there. Vague memories of my Godmother calling it Ianetta's

The Cobbler shop just up the road used to fascinate me when I was a nipper because it had one of those mannequins with a moving arm in the window that looked like a wee auld man hammering nails into boots :lol:
