Ooft, three and a half years for a 28 year old. That's almost unheard of these days. Good news. I'm a big fan.

It does seem a bit long to me - he will be 32 by the end of the 2022/23 season.  I'm not convinced that he will have the pace to be starting games at 32 (especially if we manage to go up before then...).

One game at a time. If we're 20-odd points clear then we can focus on that.

Even if we were 20 points ahead with 7 games to go, I wouldn't be expecting us to win it...

Mark Kerr as disappointing as a manager as he was a player.

An aside: Mark Kerr is under-rated by most Arabs - if it wasn't for that backpass (which still makes me shudder) he would be fondly remembered.  Very limited ability but a fantastic work ethic.

Two points on the pace:

  1. Butcher's not got much pace anyway. If you ever see him running after someone it's because he's about to chop them in half. Probably do everyone a favour if he were too slow to catch them.
  2. It's only 32. There's absolutely no reason why a professional athlete, training properly, should see a physical decline between 28 and 32 (injuries aside, I suppose).

On another note... Just had a look at the online ticket sales for the Derby on the Fishul.

ET and Dode appear to be completely sold out, and not much left in The Shed.

Brilliant effort Arabs!!!! 😀

Seems unlikely, no matter how quickly tickets are selling, that there already isn't a single seat left in the corners of the ET or Dode.

Still, looking forward to another packed Derby at Tannadice - cannae beat it!

Fair enough; not possible to buy a ticket for either online though. Only option is The Shed.

Well ignore me, the club have confirmed that only tickets in the Shed are left - that's pretty phenomenal!

I hope if/when we go back up that the club take the same approach against the Old Firm and the Sheep - let's keep The Shed!

After the last 2 Derbies, and given the Dees current abject form in the league, they might only need 1 stand, and we can get the other

There were 150/200 left in GF & ET when I looked. Then 5 mins they were all gone and it was just Shed.

Could they have stopped taking orders for those 2 stands temporarily to manage group orders etc?

Either way, it’s heading for a home sell out. Good stuff.

If Dundee can sell their tickets, they should have them - if they're struggling, well then the Jerry Kerr can be segregated.

Part of what makes the Dundee Derby atmosphere so special is the relative number of away fans.

No need, fans will pay to watch United whereas Dundee will soon be paying to entice folk in.

Some response again. As has been said, if Dundee cant shift their tickets, we should keep the Jerry Kerr as well

Heard a wee rumour we're looking to do this. Wouldn't want to comment on the veracity of that though.

Agree entirely but you cannot force them to buy them. Could they be running scared.

Just had a look at the Funsters official website; no option to buy derby tickets that I can see.
