  1. and where it goes right we give them credit. Its called balance and you used to look for it !
  2. It sounds like Robbo, the new CEO, and the club all deserve credit where it is due. An unwanted approach, Robbo telling the club, the club then rejecting it when finally approached. just as it should be. I fall into the camp where I believe we should only reject an approach if the manager is on board with that decision. When he is not, then we have seen on several occasions before that its not worth it in the end and leads to animosity and strife. Thankfully Robbo has nailed his red and blue colours to the mast and it should put a smile on all our faces. We may not be rich, or pay the highest wages, but we do have a manager that is probably the best fit for our club since Pele and has proven he can work with meagre resources. After his past sojourn to Hearts, Robbo knows where his bread is buttered and lets face it, who would want to willingly move to Dundee in the first place !
  3. not going to get fazed by this. I would have thought it is a routine thing that players who are injured or suspended don't travel with the team? Probably some daft rule from SPFL/SFA about staff who are not on matchday duties not allowed on the team bus or something equally ridiculous. I remember when I was suspended for being sent off from the touchline during my time running an amateur team in the IDAFA that I wasnt allowed to go anywhere near the changing rooms or even on the opposite sidelines for the next game. I know it happens over here every week but the distances involved and the costs are perhaps make that a different story .... If we do get through tonight then a wee rest for Polly ahead of yet another game in midweek might be just whats needed. who needs to sit in a car or on a bus for a few hours when he could be resting ! (and yes, having a pint is resting in my book !)

  6. Really? I dont think there have been too many 'rosey' posts in the last year and as owner of the forum I have fallen firmly and publicly into the camp that wants/wanted to see both Crook and Rae gone. Things are definitely not rosy at the club right now and many site users have that same opinion. The closest thing we have to a happy clapper on here right now is IHE and that is a complete 180 to what things were like when Kenny Cameron or those who went before him were in charge. You may agree or disagree with my opinion, I dont care, its my opinion and I am entitled to hold it and I believe it to be balanced and capable of both criticism and praise for the club ... However, I will also respect your entitlement to hold yours too .. .and that is the issue on here most of the time ... not the opinions themselves, but the attitude of (some) users in denying others the right to hold them and using aggressive or bullying tactics rather than reasoned argument to try and get them to change them. I would also prefer to say opinions are like buses .. if you dont like this one, wait a few minutes for the next one to come along. anyhow, back to the topic at hand .... here's hoping that we can all have a similar opinion later tonight and make plans for the next set of games in the playoffs ..... fingers and everything else crossed for that.
  7. For the second home game in a row TFC went down 2-1, this time to the Philadelphia Union, albeit with a little help from rookie referee Ramy Touchan. Despite having the better of the opening 25 minutes, TFC found themselves 1-0 down when Chris Mavinga got the last touch on a Fabrice-Jean Picault effort. The reds equalised early in the second half with another audacious chipped free-kick from Alejandro Pozuelo which Carlos Coronel got a hand to but couldn’t stop. That’s his 5th of the season. Jamiro Monteiro would go on to score the winner in 68 minutes when TFC were temporarily down to 10 men after Auro suffered an injury and was making his way to the touchline to be subbed. A further cynical foul saw Ciman having to be replaced and the ref then seemed to lose control of the match towards the end, booking 4 players as things got heated with TFC seeking an equaliser and Philly falling over at every opportunity. The most bizarre of the 4 bookings was the one dished out to Philly’s Przybylko who was carded on the bench after being subbed. Why he was not carded on the 2 or 3 occasions he wasted valuable time trying to re-enter the field of play without permission after one of his miraculous recoveries beggars belief but that is the oxymoron that is “PRO” referees here in MLS. All in all a frustrating day where our lack of a credible second striker to deputise for Jozy cost us dearly. Boyd is not the answer. Hamilton is not the answer. Akinola may become an option but he is not the answer right now.

  8. TFC went down 2-1 at home to the Portland Timbers in our first home defeat of the season. Jonathan Osorio had put the reds ahead with a scrambled goal after a corner in the 20th minute, but the Timbers drew level with a sweet strike from Bill Tuiloma just a couple of minutes later. Jeremy Ebobisse wrapped it up in the 70th minute for the visitors with another good goal.

  11. Pricing : cant blame or criticise the club on this one as the SPFL seem to be setting the rules about what we can and cant do and how much we charge for the privilege. I will criticise when I think they are at fault for something, or making a dogs breakfast of things, but they are not on this occasion. Mobile Tickets : Glad to see the club continuing to make progress on this. I have used mobile ticketing for my Toronto FC tickets for years and it works great. Can scan at the gate right from my phone or can transfer to a friend through the app. Can also be sure of not missing renewals or purchasing my seats for cup games by setting my automatic ticketing preferences in my account. Hopefully ICT can do something like this too. I get an email from TFC ahead of any transactions with the expected timelines and then it all happens automatically unless I opt out. Also a good way for the club to offer additional season ticket offers to members during the season to drive in extra revenue.
