I think Rudden leaving (and us not replacing with a similar quality) was one of the factors in us falling away from challenging closer to the top, so its still naturally frustrating. But I'd probably still take him back given his contribution earlier in the season - I'd say its extremely unlikely though.

Jordan Rhodes who scored last night to take his side within a game from the English Premier League? Safe to say that one isn't happening. Would absolutely take Easton though. 

Agree totally.

Rhodes also has two years left on his contract. 😀

Dundee will probably be paying Rudden about double what we were when he officially starts his contract with them. No chance he's back with us next year.

Are PCAs legally binding or can Dundee wriggle out of the deal without paying him compensation?

I don't think they're legally binding and there's precedent for players getting out of them. I'm not sure why Dundee would want to do that, though, as Rudden proved with us that he's a pretty good player at this level.

Of course, this is Dundee we're talking about who regularly do stupid things (see: appointing Mark McGhee), so I suppose there's a chance they don't want to keep him.

Would it not be more likely Rudden wants to get out of it- I know there are / were rumours that Ricky Lamie who had also agreed a PCA with Dundee had a get-out clause in his if Dundee went down but I've not paid much attention to that.

If Rudden is playing in the Championship next year he'll be a Dundee player. But it won't matter as we've got Jordan Rhodes.

I hope so because he's been brutal.

Aye, but he’s been there and done that.

Time for something new and exotic. Like the League Cup group stages.

Steven Davis setting up Jordan Rhodes next season? Might as well get our name on the trophy already...

At the meet the manager last night and speaking to McCall we have a right back due to come in end of the week, sounds like McMillan or Elliot going off when a boy asked if he played for the club before McCall said aye. 
He is also hopeful of another midfielder and is looking to bring in another goalkeeper, first choice centre back, a striker(who wants to come in as the number 1) and two right sided midfielders, one being Fitzpatrick.

Speak for yourself. As far as I'm concerned we punched above our weight for about 5 months (Aug to Dec his 2nd attempt at the championship).

 

The other 4.5 years he was anywhere between average and poor. He's a messianic figure amongst our support on account of what came before and after him.

With the bar set that high there can't be many managers in our history you are happy with then?

McCall told Rhodes that he'll be our first choice right-back.  

So Jordan bought out his Huddersfield contract....   ;)

How bad? Perhaps he did not get on with McGhee.

Presumably WGS will decide who is signed up for next season.

As in often looked like he was a competition winner in a terrible Dundee side.

Maybe the Championship is his level, but he's not shown he's got any aspects of being a competent footballer down at all so far.

Still hoping it 'clicks' in the way he's seemed to light on fire before though.

To be honest with you, there are very few in the time I've been going. Ally in his 3rd spell obviously, and other than that I thought Brian Reid done a really decent job in difficult circumstances. I'm not sure who else you could say you were truly happy with. He wasn't a bad manager, he was competent for the most part bar a really good wee purple patch for 6 months after we were promoted the 2nd time under him.

Maybe when he gets back from Seville he’ll start signing players again?

Probably not as he's already snapped up Steven Lawless, Andy Halliday and Mark Hateley while he's there.
