All things Dundee FC

I hope bowyer doesn’t get binned before he has time to build his own squad. Feels like this season is going to be a slog and January window is notoriously pish for players. I’d give him next summer as well even if we don’t go up. It feels like the board don’t want promotion this year seeing as they blamed last years relegation by being in the top flight too soon. Bowyer also mentioned aiming for the playoffs when he joined didn’t he?

GB hasn't really had long enough to figure out his best team yet. There are times that we look pretty decent, even last week at Ayr we looked fine until the goals went in and we now have Ashcroft back who is more than capable at this level. I think we should be competing come January, I can still see lots of teams taking points of each other with no runaway leader. That's when we need to be strengthening and I'd much rather GB targeted some really good ones in Jan (potentially pre-contracts that can lead to signing in Jan) than the left overs from this transfer window

I didn’t see anything from Dundee to make me think “shit they need signings or they’ll be in trouble”. In truth I think McCowan going off had a big impact and then McGowan being subbed changed it even further. You had nothing left in midfield and once we got a foothold we just ran over the top of you. If you can get Ashcroft in for that big haddy Sweeney and keep Rudden, McCowan and McGowan fit then you’ll still be in the mix come January. That’ll let you see what you definitely need and can try and address it.

You’re a million miles ahead of what Dundee United were when we regularly pumped them in this league and we were quite a bit better back then as well.

I thought the squad was largely good enough, with the right signings in particular areas, to go back up but Bowyer all summer has talked about getting new faces in the door with the days coming up to the deadline saying he needed a fair number in. I think I remember him saying 4?

I'm all for not bringing in players just for the sake of it but when the manager is telling you where team needs strengthened...

Whatever way it is dressed up it's a failure not to get some faces in yesterday.

Can't wait for Bowyer's explanation in the pre-match press conference which should come tomorrow. It would usually be on a Thursday, but I didn't moan because I assumed we'd be very busy tonight, can't wait to hear what the fucking excuse is.

There's a story in the courier today. Its just their speculation for now though - does say we still have Chapman though @Girth https://12ft.io/proxy?q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thecourier.co.uk%2Ffp%2Fsport%2Ffootball%2Fdundee-fc%2F3654844%2Fdundees-deadline-day-frustration-what-happened-next%2F @Girth

I think there's something more with Chapman, maybe issues with his private life. For someone who constantly posted on Instagram, he has not posted in months.

They are saying passport problems but I suspect you are right given he also seemingly wants away. We supposedly also want to let him go so fk knows why we didn't let him leave over the window

Yeah, you would think there would be some kind of contract cancellation.

I genuinely wonder how much we’ve spent on non playing players or if there were deals in the background that made it worth it with a 2 year deal for chapman being the most recent of the top of my head

:Jeremy mal(something), arturo, the Dutch guys yordi and Randy (something), Sean bonnet Johnson, Tom field, Nicky Hamilton , the panther missing anyone? And that’s just what I mind …brutal

The 12 foot ladder has stopped working for me?

Dorrans has left Dunfermline. That might give McPake the budget to get Byrne in on loan.

McPake can f**k off. We’re still dealing with his shitshow like the contract extension to permanently crock Jakubiak 😡

What is the deal with Jakubiak anyway? What sort of injury does he have and how long is he out for?

Just the usual pulled up with no one near him at the Raith game If I recall correctly. 
 

Another gripe with the club is there doesn’t appear to be much in the way of any info about what injury the players have, how their recoveries going and where the f**k the likes if Chapman is. What’s the script with Sheridan, has he had another setback or is he just not getting selected 🤷🏼‍♂️ Some club for continually paying a decent wedge on boys being out injured

It did for me the other day too but seemed ok again when I tried it today 🤷🏻‍♂️

 

Think they are probably getting grief from the companies they are doing out of money tbh...
