But we're not spunking a lot of cash. The wages to income will have fallen last season due to paying customers back in the grounds, and league prize money. Squad will be smaller this season. This coming season we'll go into it with our highest season ticket sales in over a decade. We have the.Shankland money, Fuchs money (and potentially fuchs sell on fee). 

Just jealousy on my part. Especially Dylan Levitt coming back up the road. Probably be the signing of the summer in my humble opinion.

Signing of the summer for us this year and signing of the summer for Man City this time next season.

Just after winning Player of the Tournament in the World Cup, of course.

Zander Clark and Jamie McGrath next?

McGrath, yes, but Clark has had the contract pulled from the rumours doing the rounds. Rumour is contract verbally agreed, agent asked for more, agreed again, then agent comes back another time for more. United then told them to bolt. Or so the story goes.

Sure his agent is Jackie McNamara, so sounds realistic.

I have always been an advocate for quality over quantity.

Year after year we've signed players to create a heaving squad full of meh!

So I'm genuinely delighted with the approach thus far.

In fact, bring me in just two more quality players to fill the defensive (aggressive) midfielder spot and an attacking(central/right) midfielder and I would be more than happy if that was all the business we did. Albeit, it seems clear they don't much rate Eriksson if they've been chasing Clark.

With Meekison, Glass, Mochrie, Cudjoe, Moore, Fotheringham, MacLeod and others we have plenty of promising kids for backup in the midfield and attacking berths.

And I've never been a fan of loading up with defensive squad players who never get a game. We've got 3 good CBs fighting out for 2 spots (I presume) and plenty of cover in the full back areas.

This the away kit or another training Jersey?

Looks like Cudjoe-Amin also played although not mentioned in the team line up. He's in one of the pictures on Northampton's website.

Surely be your away kit. Never seen training gear with main sponsors on it that I can remember?

Happened a couple of years ago if I remmember correctly when the new.kit wasn't announced before the friendlies started. Bit of a recurring theme there.

Not trying to imply you guys don’t know what you are doing financially in the way that the supporters of the smaller Dundee club are insinuating but as a genuine question do you think your board could be looking at the pot the cash the Conference league brings and are making a serious play for 3rd place?

I think the ECL money could be a help to change the status quo in Scottish football if we can continue get clubs directly into the group stages.

Very doubtful

No.

Can't be bothered to look it up, but we must be approaching about a 1 in 50 success rate for non-OF Scottish sides making the group stages in Europe by now.
