All things Dundee FC

French outstanding again yesterday; anyone that can't see his worth needs to open their eyes. His pace gets us out of so many issues aswell. 

Robinsons hold up play was unreal at times aswell. Only issue from yesterday is that we didn't kill the game sooner. Plenty chances created and we start theis important week off with three points. As i said last week if we get the results in this week we'll be sitting pretty - our poorish start is absolutely no concern to me. 

Onto Cove, a new stadium to tick off the list and doing so whilst able to verbally abuse Jim McIntyre. All the same time that high spending Yinited are absolutely garbage.

We move forward. 

Thank you.

That’s a great drawing.  Did they knock down a good portion of the Provie Road end when they put the roof on and put the benches in - don’t remember it being that high? Or where it sweeps round to join the Derry, can’t remember there being much terracing there at all? 

Artistic licence I assume in the drawing from the office of Archibald Keir Leitch (1865-1939). In addition to designing commercial / industrial projects in the UK and abroad he was commissioned in the design and construction of over 20 famous football stadia, from Dens Park to Highbury and Anfield to name but a few. Wiki has a comprehensive and very impressive list.

Pleasing, yet completely expected result at Tannadice yesterday @PauloPerth. The rotten and fermenting fruit is still present in Mulgrew and Watt, fucking priceless as it is amusing, lol.

Regards

The Provie used to go pretty far back to be fair even with the roof on so I don’t think they took too much off compared to the drawing.

Your right about there being less terracing as it sweeps towards the Derry though.  I think the stairs in the drawing are also more north westerly than they actually are.  The are actually more northerly in orientation.

Anyway, well done yesterday on your result - just being neighbourly you understand…..

Cheers both. I had a look at an old match on you tube and it did go further back than I remembered. In the last few years it became the away end as I remember after it previously being the TC Keay (?) End, was much better having the roof!

Aye I’ve felt utd are bound to turn the corner with the quality of players on their books, but there’s a fair few fillers in amongst the stars as well, and the balance is all wrong, more a group of individuals than a team kind of thing.  And as we both know from last season, once the rot sets in it’s really hard to get out of..

They're fucked, without a serious clear out of egos in that dressing. Emptying Ross (whilst funny after the crowing about landing him) pretty much on the basis of Watt and a couple others has-beens on probably sizeable wages deciding they didn't want him is dire judgement. 

They should be able to comfortably finish mid table with that squad, in theory, but another hilarious 2016 style season could be on the cards. Someone other than us will have to pull the trigger this time though 🙁

Come into contact with a few of these DAB's most days, a dreary bunch that tend to drone on a bit, I switch off, nod my head, and bid them good day.

Thank you.

I’d imagine that droning would be clueless where football’s concerned. 
 

Football’s least knowledgeable fans.

Have they really got a decent squad though? It looks very, very poor to me and a squad that had Siegrist, Edwards and Mulgrew bail them out time and again last season. Not surprised to see where they are tbh.

For the money that's been allegedly thrown at it, it's absolutely a fucking gang but would still in theory be good enough to compete with some of the dross around them. However factor in a dressing room where any incoming manager is going to be immediately up against egos like Mulgrew and Watt then they could be in pleasingly deep shite. 

Imagine allowing a nobody like Watt to dictate your choice of manager 😂

I don't know - we may get the chance in a play-off!

That’s bang on for me. Looks like the problem was more Mulgrew and Watt than agent Ross.

No thank you. Championship winning promotion for us, hilarious relegation for them, although Partick emptying them in a play off would be nicely poetic I guess 😂
