Scottish Cup Update............

Dundee will play St Mirren at Dens after the Paisley side beat Spartans 5-1 at New St Mirren Park last night. The game will be played on the 21st Of January 2017

Dundee 2, Inverness CT 1, Dens Park, Ladbrokes Premiership, 26-November-16

Dundee ended a long hodoo over highland outfit Inverness Caley Thistle with a fine 2-1 victory. Before this Dundee only managed one win in the last 20 games, with ten draws and nine defeats. Not a good record at all.

Dundee stared brightly and played some good link up play, ICT looked dangerous as well going forward but found the Dundee rear guard in good form. Dundee took the lead in the 25th minute when Craig Wighton took a pass from Hateley drifted into the box and curled a beauty past the ICT keeper to send Dens Park wild. A truly wonderful goal from the young striker it settled Dundee down and they should have had a penalty when Wighton was tripped in the box but Dallas failed to give it.

With My Brother Before Kick-Off

Second half and again Dundee looked good when attacking and forced the ICT keeper into a couple of good saves, but on 57 minutes he was finally beaten when Kosta Gadzhalov headed home a Hateley cross. Dundee were on top now and McGowan forced the keeper into making a couple of great blocks to keep the score down.

But with 9 minutes to go ICT scored when Tremarco  headed home, a poor goal to lose and Scott Bain looked a bit slow in trying to stop it. The main thing is that managed to hang on to claim the three points.

It moved the club into seventh place so much better than being bottom, it's a very tight league with any club going on a run of wins will climb the table.

Dundee: Bain,  Gomis, Gadzhalov, O’Dea (c),  Kerr, Hateley, McGowan, Vincent (williams 63), Holt,  Haber (Etxabeguren 89), Wighton. Unused Subs: Mitchell, Loy, Duffy, El Bakhtaoui, Curran.

Rangers 1, Dundee 0, Ibrox Stadium, Ladbrokes Premiership, 19-November-16

Dundee came close to earning a point at Ibrox, but Rangers scored in the third minute of injury time to seal the three points. Going by reports the home side had a lot of the ball. But Dundee had a few chance and Hateley was unlucky with two free kicks in either half. Vincent went close as well.

Scott Bain had a few saves but nothing serious, until the winner when a hopeful punt into the box ended with Forrester directing his header home.

So with Inverness CT next up at Dens next Saturday the signs are that the team are playing well enough for us to take the three points.

Dundee 2, Motherwell 0, Dens Park, Ladbrokes Premiership, 05-November-16

Dundee played hosts to the steel men of Motherwell who had a good result last week beating Ross County. Manager Paul Hartley make only one change to Dundee’s starting line up was Kevin Gomis replacing Julen Etxabeguren.

Dundee started well and striker  Wighton created an early chance when he took Haber’s flick, held possession superbly and found Cammy Kerr who hammered a low, angled shot just past the far post. It was close as Dundee continued to dominate play. But Motherwell sprung to life and Mitchell pushed a coner against his bar.

Then the Dundee keeper had a massive let off after 20 minutes a simple cross but Mitchell seemed to stumble and his feet landed behind the line the far side lines man never flagged to the horror of the Well fans behind the goal. To be fair it looked in from where l was sitting, and l sent a text to my Motherwell mate George at half-time to say it looked over the line.

The Dark Blues took the lead six minutes before the interval with a goal that summed up their performance. Scott McDonald had the ball on the half way line, but Cammy Kerr brushed him aside and galloped forward. On the edge of the penalty area he slipped Craig Wighton in to shoot, but Craig Samson stuck out a foot to save. The ball fell kindly for Cammy Kerr to hammer the ball home for his first goal for the club in the league.

Dundee started the second half very well and the Motherwell keeper had to make good saves from a Haber header which he tipped onto the bar then Holt and Wighton went close with good efforts. But Dundee sealed the three points when great wing play from Wighton and as burst into the box he passed to Marcus Haber to blast home from 10 yards.

Motherwell did have a wee spell of play but could not take their chances, so it a happy Dundee support heading home after the game. The whole team played well and a special performance from Craig Wighton who was the sponsors MOM well deserved from what l had seen.

Dundee: Mitchell,  Gomis (Williams 56 ), Gadzhalov, O’Dea,  Kerr, Hateley, McGowan, Vincent, Holt,  Haber, Wighton. Unused Subs: Bain, Low, Loy, Duffy, Ross, Teijsse.

Hamilton Accies 0, Dundee 1, The Super Seal Stadium, Ladbrokes Premiership, 29-October-16

Dundee came back from Hamilton with three well earned points thanks to a goal from Paul McGowan after 61 minutes. They were the better side over the ninety minutes and fully deserved the vital win.

Dundee played a 4-4-2 system which worked well, and the midfield really got stuck in and never gave Accies a chance to settle. David Mitchell was in goals after Scott Bain was ruled out with a groin injury. Julen Etxabeguren and Kosta Gadzhalov started at back for the dark blues with Craig Wighton and James Vicent coming in for Danny Williams and Rory Loy.

Hamilton had a spell in the first half but they never troubled the Dundee goalie, Wighton had a great chance but put his effort wide of the goal. The young striker should have done better, Etxabeguren was unlucky with a header which just missed the target.

Second half and Dundee pushed forward at every opportunity and it paid off after 61 minutes when the ball was knocked down to Paul McGowan who hit a low shot up the middle of the goal, it some how ended in the net after Marcus Haber dummied over to leave Woods helpless.

Dundee fought for everything and fully deserved the clean sheet. It was greeted by happy Dundee fans at full time. I though Hateley had his best game for the club, but the whole team played well the defence looked solid and midfield fought for everything with the strikers worked hard for the team.

Dundee: Mitchell,  Etxabeguren, Gadzhalov, O’Dea (c),  Kerr, Hateley, McGowan (Ross 77), Vincent, Holt,  Haber (Teijsse 90+1), Wighton. Unused Subs: Gourlay (gk), Loy, Duffy, Williams, Smyth.

Dundee 0, Partick Thistle 2, Dens Park, Ladbrokes Premiership, 26-October-16

Dundee lost 2-0 at home to Partick Thistle who fully deserved the win, scoring a goal in each half. New striker Marcus Haber made his debut in which was a tough one to come in to.

During the first half and Dundee struggled with Partick's long ball game and it paid off when they scored after a long ball into the box was headed home by Azeez. It looked a soft goal to lose and it gave the home side a mountain to climb in the second half. Dundee's only effort in the first half was a O'Dea header which was just wide.

It got worse on 61 minutes and it sealed the three points for the Jags,they  were handed a soft goal after 61 minutes. Kevin Holt took a short pass from Bain and was caught in possession by Azeez who rolled the ball across goal to leave Doolan with a simple chance.

That was game over and it leaves Dundee at the bottom of the league adrift now by 4 points and this was defeat no 6 in a row.

They must get their heads up for the tough trip to Hamilton on Saturday.

Dundee: Bain,  Kerr, Gomis (Gadzhalov 34), O’Dea (c), Holt,  Wighton, Hateley, McGowan, Williams (Teijsse 72),  Haber, Loy (Duffy 59). Unused Subs: Mitchell (gk), Vincent, Etxabeguren, Ross.

St Johnstone 2, Dundee 1, McDiarmid Park, Ladbrokes Premiership, 23-October-16

I missed the game due to work, going by reports Dundee played okay in the first half, and had a great chance to take the lead after a great break away move play from Paul McGowan he then passed to Yordi Teijsse shot straight at the goalie from 12 yards out. It was a golden chance.

Second half and St Johnstone were the better side and scored twice, the first was a well taken volley from Anderson. The second one was a rather soft looking penalty scored by Swanson.

Although Rory Loy scored from the spot in the final minute after Teijsse was pushed going up for a header.

So another defeat for the dark blues I think they are missing Mark O'Hara who seems to be the only midfielder who goes forward. Big games follow now and we must start picking up points

Hearts 2, Dundee 0, Tynecastle, Ladbrokes Premiership, 15-October-16

Dundee  made three changes for the visit to Tynecastle. Darren O’Dea and Nicky Low were injured and Cammy Kerr was dropped to the bench.  Kosta Gadzhalov, James Vincent and Tom Hateley came into the starting eleven.

Dundee started very well and played some neat football and were unlucky when Hateley hit the bar after El Bakhtaoui was fouled. Hearts were dangerous on the break and Scott Bain had to make a couple of decent saves to keep the jambos at bay. Hearts were the better side but Dundee have done well to go in at the break still level at 0-0.

Dundee started the second brightly and were unlucky when after good play from Teijsse the ball broke to Hateley who smashed a powerful shot off the far post. Then Hamilton made a good save from El Bakhtaoui, from the corner  Gadzhalov's header shook the bar. It was the 4th time Dundee had hit the woodwork.

But in so many games like this who have to take your chances and Hearts did when Paterson headed home a simple goal for Hearts and it change the game a wee bit. Dundee made changes putting on Michael Duffy and Cammy Kerr to replace James Vincent and Tom Hateley, then with five minutes left replaced Gadzhalov with Rory Loy.

But Hearts sealed the game when Johnsen scored with minutes to go, it was tough on the dark blues who had played well in spells.

It was a good day out in Edinburgh and it was great to meet up with Mike Taylor and his son Andrew and daughter Amy. Mike lives in Shetland so it was great to have a few beers before and after the game.

Dunee 0, Celtic 1, Dens Park,Ladbrokes Premiership, 01-October-2016

Dundee Manager Paul Hateley made three changes to the side which lost in Inverness. Mark O’Hara and Kevin Gomis returned from suspension while Danny Williams started after coming on as a substitute last Saturday. Nick Ross and Julen Etxebeguren moved onto the bench and Tom Hateley misses due to injury.

Celtic started well and Scott Bain made two good saves to keep them at bay, the Dundee strikes were working hard with Jordi Teijsse winning a lot of headers. Dundee had a half chance near half time when El Bakhtaoui reached the byline with neat skill and his cross to the near post where Teijsse, under pressure, couldn’t get his header on target.

Second half and Celtic opened the scoring when Scott Brown started the move the ball fell back to him after Dembele's shot was blocked by O'Dea and he beat Scoot Bain from 10 yards.

Craig Wighton came on as a straight replacement for Faissal El Bakhtaoui. In the last 10 minutes Nick Ross and Rory Loy replaced Nicky Low and Danny Williams. Dundee did have a late chance a great run from Cammy Kerr his cross was just missed by Mark O'Hara.

Overall the whole team worked hard but Celtic are a well organised side and difficult to break down.

Inverness C T 3, Dundee 1, Tulloch Caledonian Stadium, Ladbrokes Premiership, 24-September-16

Dundee lost 3-1 in the Highland with ICT scoring two goals in the first 20 minutes, worse was to follow when ICT scored early in the second half. Going by reports and what media I have seen the team struggled. Highlights did show they had half chances. But football you have to take them.

Nicky Low pulled one back with 7 minutes to go with a well taken free kick, but it did end up 3-1 for the home side.

I missed the game due to work and was quite glad when l got the result and report from the game. With Celtic next in the league I just hope the team are really up for it. Go for a win as really we have to.

At least Kevin Gomis and Mark O'Hara will be back and just hope the fans back the team as we need a result to boost our season, and we are long overdue to beat Celtic at Dens. The last time a Tommy Coyne goal gave Dundee all three points.

Dundee 1, Aberdeen 3, Dens Park, Ladbrokes Premiership, 18-September-16

Dundee entertained struggling Aberdeen to Dens park on Sunday, Darren O'Dea made the team after injury, Julen Etxabeguren replaced the suspended Kevin Gomis, and Danny Williams came in for Craig Wighton on the left wing.

Aberdeen started brightly and attacked from the kick -off. But it was Dundee who scored on 12 minutes when Kevin Holt scored with a well placed shot after a smooth ten passing movement from the Dee. But soon after Aberdeen levelled when Maddison scored with a low drive, a shot which Scott Bain should have saved.

Paul McGowan rolled the ball across for Mark O’Hara, whose shot from 16 yards was charged down. A fast break from a corner ended with El Bakhtaoui curling a shot narrowly past the post from 20 yards. Aberdeen did have possession but failed to get through the Dundee defence.

Second half and Scott Bain had two great saves from Shinnie and Maddison, Dundee broke forward and El Bakhtaoui was bundled off the ball and could have been a penalty.

Late on Aberdeen scored when a Hayes cross was headed home by Stockley, Dundee then made changes with Duffy and Loy replacing Ross and Hateley. Earlier Wighton had replaced Williams.

In the final minutes Aberdeen got a penalty when Etxabeguren was adjudged to foul Burns, it looked to me that the defender played the ball first. McLean scored from the spot to make the final score 3-1.

It is clear Dundee need a big striker and soon they can't play with one upfront at home and if they do it's going to be a long season.

Next up is a trip to Inverness which is not a happy hunting ground for the Dee..

Dundee 1, Kilmarnock 1, Dens Park, Ladbrokes Premiership, 10-September-16

Dundee gave Tom Hateley his debut instead of Danny Williams, with Craig Wighton coming in for the injured Michael Duffy.

Cammy Kerr was brought down at the attacking corner flag and when new boy Tom Hateley fired the free kick into the 6 yard box, Faissal El Bakhtaoui fired the ball into the roof of the net from close range to give Dundee the lead and score his first goal for The Dee. It was the good start that Dundee needed and they quickly created some half decent chances.

Kilmarnock levelled on 32 minutes when Coulibaly scored with an overhead kick on the far corner of the six yard box which sent the ball back the way it came and past Scott Bain. A great goal for the visitors. That was the score at half-time a quick half as time just seemed to fly in.

Second half and Dundee did attack and McGowan set up Wighton but the young striker had his two shots saved by McDonald maybe the second one Craig should have done better. Then Hateley had a long range effort which just flew over the bar.

Loy and Teijsee  both came on with 15 minutes left as Dundee looked to win it, but a few minutes later Kevin Gomis was sent off after a two footed tackled earned the Dundee player a straight red.

Teijsee had a couple of chances but missed both, El Bakhtoui was then just wide with a shot from outside the box.

It ended 1-1 in a game where Dundee should have won, but one thing is pretty clear we need a striker just to take the chances we created.

Tom Hateley Signs.................

Dundee FC have signed Tom Hateley on a two year deal. Tom has been without a club since ending a two year spell with Polish side Śląsk Wrocław in the summer.

Tom has already got experience of playing in the Scottish top flight. After starting his career at Reading, he move North of the border in 2009 when he joined Motherwell. In a four year period at Fir Park he played over 150 times.

In 2014, he moved back down South for a short spell with Tranmere Rovers before a move to Poland where he joined Śląsk Wrocław. A really good signing for the club, and well worth the wait.

Motherwell 0, Dundee 0, Dens Park, Ladbrokes Premiership, 26-August-2016

Dundee earned  0-0 draw at Fir Park, in a first half  Motherwell were far the better side and had a lot of the ball. New signing Kevin Gomis looked cool and settled in to the game at ease.

Dundee's first real chance came on 20 minutes when El Bakhtaoui found space in the right hand side of Motherwell’s box but his shot was saved by the feet off Samson. The ball rebounded straight back to the striker and it took a brilliant block from McManus to stop a certain goal. Motherwell kept up the pressure but the Dundee defence kept them with some good defending.

Dundee started the second half better forcing a early corner and when the ball broke to Duffy the strikers shot was just wide. McDonald came close for the home side with a shot which was just wide.

El Bahktaoui and Tait clashed when the Motherwell defender fell over the advertising boards as they chased a long ball into the box and  the referee had to step in to calm them down.

Paul Hartley put on Rory Loy for Williams, Motherwell threw a few crosses into the box before Lasley tried a shot from the edge of the box but O’Hara through his body on the line to block.

In the end however both sides had to settle for a point as an entertaining game finished goal less and the Dark Blues might be slightly the happier after a much improved second half.

Dundee drew 1-1 with Hamilton at Dens Park on Friday, at the a rain sodden Dens Dundee started well , but it was Hamilton scored first when Lyon scored a cracker from 30 yards out which gave Scott Bain no chance. But Dundee hit back to level on 16 minutes when Mark O'Hara scored at the back post from a Danny Williams corner.

Going by reports Dundee struggled after the first 15 minutes and Hamilton in the second half should have won it.

A point is good if that was the case, we need to start playing for 90 minutes, and hopefully McGowan will be back for the trip to Fir Park. I missed the game due to my Holiday in London.

Dundee 1, Rangers 2, Dens Park, Ladbrokes Premiership, 13th August 2016

Dundee started with just Rory Loy upfront with five across the midfield to face a shaky looking Rangers if last weeks result was anything to go by. Dundee seemed to give Rangers too much respect and as a result struggled to play passes to each other in a packed midfield.

Rangers scored twice before the first half ended first when Forrester scored on the turn when the Dundee defence struggled to clear, and then Miller scored after the ball fell nice I'm and he smashed it home pass a helpless Bain. But Mark O'Hara headed home from a Danny Williams corner just before half time to give the home fans some hope.

Second half and Paul Hartley finally changed Nick Ross, Yordi Teijesse and Faissal El Bakhtaoui for James Vincent, Rory Loy and Michael Duffy. It was the change to two strikers and finally Dundee looked more dangerous going forward. Rangers did have some break away but could not add to their score line. Dundee did have a few chance but sadly they could not score with Teijesse and Holt going close with headers. Time ran out and Rangers held on to their 2-1 win. I was disappointed with the tactics used today at the start, I think we need to attack teams as Rangers are not world beaters.

Ross County 1, Dundee 3, Global Energy Stadium, Ladbrokes Premiership, 6th August 2016

Dundee travelled up to Dingwall in the hope of 3points and a good start to the season, and the DFC fans were not disappointed with the dark blues coming away with all 3 points. Greg Stewart was ruled out with a injury and plenty rumours of Greg signing for a club in England were doing the rounds in the pub before the game.

Dundee started well and had a few chances before taking the lead in 13 minutes when a great ball from Williams released O'Hara and his cut back was well finished by Rory Loy to give Dundee a 1 nil lead, just before the goal Kevin Holt had cleared one off the line. Soon after and O'Hara had a great chance but put his effort just wide. Dundee were well on top and they got a penalty after O'Hara was fouled in the box. Up stepped Rory Loy to drill the ball home to the delight of the big Dundee support behind the goal. That was the score at half-time and it well deserved after a good half.

Second half and County pushed Dundee back and the defence and midfield done well clearing their lines and as the rain got heavier. A great break away from Dundee sealed the 3 points a great ball from Loy to Duffy who first time ball send Paul McGowan free to score number three. A great goal and it was vintage Dundee.

Ross County kept going and finally scored when Curran finish in the six yard box. Scott Bain had a few good saves but that is how the game finished and it was happy DFC fans who left Dingwall. A great team performance and l thought all the team played well. My MOM went to Kevin Holt who had his best game for the Dee

Kane Hemmings Leaves Dens Park...

Dundee striker Kane Hemmings has joined Oxford United on a three year deal, a clause in his deal was met by the English club rumoured to be £250,000. Kane done well at Dens last season and it would have been very hard to keep him. At least he won't play against the Dark Blues this season.

A few Dundee fans are not happy with deal ect, myself the fee could have been higher but with the clause it was hard to see someone going above it.

Players come and go from Dens Park it's part and parcel of supporting DFC maybe one day we will get top dollar when we sell someone.

All the best to Kane at his new club hope he does well.
