  1. That’s exactly what we should be doing; they would complement each other. Goodwin seems unwilling to commit to a conventional two up top which, given our lacklustre performances of late, seems bizarre.
  2. Nicholas Watt is the political editor of Newsnight.
  3. I’m pretty sure that in determining these matters the “in living memory” rule is evoked. So unless Dundee can produce a 113 year old fan (with incredible recall as a baby) then their Scottish Cup win doesn’t count.
  4. It would have been David Dorward, former Chief Executive of Dundee City Council, who resigned during that financial year.
  5. As the following extract shows, even allowing for redundancy costs our wage bill still increased by about 10.6% at the same time as the football personnel was reduced by 6%.
  6. The club has managed to make a loss of £2.4m in the 2022-23 season. Yip, no kidding. https://www.dundeeunitedfc.co.uk/news/8206/ANNUAL-REPORT-AND-FINANCIAL-STATEMENTS-FY23.html I hope Ogren doesn’t walk away anytime soon as I cannot imagine anyone else would be crazy enough to fund this financial shit show. Total wage costs increased in the season by 18% yet we were relegated. It defies logic. Full details to aid in the tears of despair (or joy). https://www.dundeeunitedfc.co.uk/uploads/tinymce/DUFC Signed Accounts 2023.pdf ETA - I love this bit of wishful thinking - “Finally, the board are confident that despite the difficulties of 2022/23, we remain on course to achieve the long-term aim of being a sustainable and leading competitor within the Scottish Professional Football League.
  7. Congratulations to Raith, a close match but an excellent goal deserving of the three points. I didn’t think there was much between the two sides but your guys seem to have a desire that is lacking in many of our players. That desire might be what determines the final outcome of the season though there’s obviously a long way to go. From a United perspective Moult has been off the boil for weeks and we have no natural alternative for that role. Taking Fotheringham off was a mistake IMO, he might have not been having his best game but he’s the player most likely to score at the moment.
  8. UN mourns the deaths of more than 100 aid workers in Gaza, the highest number killed in any other conflict in its history https://edition.cnn.com/2023/11/14/middleeast/united-nations-staff-deaths-gaza-intl-hnk/index.html What’s happening here is because the western powers have ignored what has happened to the Palestinians in Israel, Gaza and the West Bank for years. They refuse to acknowledge the apartheid system of government that allows a Jew with no connection to Israel to settle there with rights whereas a non-Jew who has lived there for years is denied the same rights. Consecutive Israeli governments have been given a free pass in a manner that no other country has. Free from criticism and protected by the U.S.A. at the U.N. Security Council on countless occasions when they have committed acts that any other country would be censured for. Whatever happens in the weeks and months ahead there will be no respite for Palestinians or Israelis until a political solution is found and that looks as far away today than it ever has. Nothing will be achieved without a U.S. President who genuinely believes that the Palestinians have rights and that’s not Biden or any other likely holder of that office.
  9. Why are the views of the World Health Organisation and the United Nations on a major humanitarian crisis suddenly being ignored?
  10. No. Anderson getting appointed Equalities Minister; Boris Johnson getting a seat in the Lords and appointed deputy PM; and Liz Truss getting a job as assistant to Larry the cat.
  11. Looking forward to the Tory leadership bloodbath after the GE.
  12. Two thirds of the 11,000 plus killed in Gaza are women and children. I cannot wait to hear the new Foreign Secretary condemning this.
  13. FFS even Ian Duncan Smith is having a go at Cameron’s appointment and raising the accountability issue. I reckon Wee Rishi still thinks he can win the next election. Deluded fool that he is.
