New Manager

After much speculation Neil McCann has been named as the new Manager of Dundee FC. I'm happy with the appointment and he has a big job ahead with a few players to move on. 

Player of the Year

I went this year with The Fife Dark Blues who's player of the year went to Cammy Kerr who swept the boards winning the overall award The Andrew De Vries  Trophy. It was a great night out with fellow Dundee Supporters.

Last Three Games

The last two games against Inverness CT (lost 2-0) at home and Hamilton Accies (lost 4-0) (Away) were very poor from Dundee the story of the season. The Dundee players need to have more pride and fight, it showed how weak we have been for 80% of this season. I went to both games and it was just the same as the last game at  Inverness last season.  We need a big change in the squad and for all the dead wood to move on.

Dundee 1, Ross County 1, Dens Park, Ladbrokes Premiership, 13-May-17

Dundee got the point that proved vital as the club stayed in the Premiership for another year. Ross County scored early one when Boyce netted from close range. Second half Dundee were much better and levelled when O'Dea blasted home from the spot. Dundee did create chances to win the game and came close to doing so.

Dundee: Bain, Kerr, Gomis (Gadzhalov 67), O’Dea (c), Holt, O’Hara, Hateley (Ross at half time), Vincent, El Bakhtaoui (Wighton 85), McGowan, Haber. Unused Subs: Ferrie (gk), Williams, Ojamaa, Higgins.
