  1. I, for one, am very sad to see her go. I really liked her and got on extremely well with her. Its a total bugger that shes gone , especially at this time as she had loads of different things on and different ideas to promote the club. She most certainly had the club at heart and worked 7 days a week for all the time I ve known her. Hopefully we can get a suitable replacement in who has the same enthusiasm in as quick as possible. Any potential candidates names would be welcome . We need someone on the ground with business and commercial local knowledge that has vision and doesnt m
  2. I'm no going to put a hex on anything, so I ll not go any further than, I m very much looking forward to the 13th or 14th of April !!!!!! Love it !
  3. I did 10,000 steps walking about Dundee city centre with my Caley coat on pi55ing as many Arabs off as humanly possible. A very good day to be a Jaggie !! Roll on Hampden !
  4. So do you think that a similar idea to the aberDNA would appeal ? Im trying to find the best way to put it forward and it would be good to try and copy the best bits of other clubs initiatives to make our as good as we can get. Attractive for our fans. Agree that the funds should be ring fenced for what they are being put in for, be that the Youth system or directly to the players budget. I m sure the Players budget would be the more appealing as the results of the donations would be almost immediately evident. Hopefully ! If anyone has knowledge of other clubs foundations etc pleas
  5. As everyone is entitled to their own valued opinion I ll leave the answer to the question to yourselves but I would say that but on the basis of the context of the stories and my recollection of them, I m no sure where I m sitting. The Pied Piper memorized poor unsuspecting innocent youngsters into something and somewhere they didnt know where they were going and when they got there didnt want to be. Dinna think there are alot of poor unsuspecting innocents here ! The Samaritan. The victim of a savage assault was beaten and stripped and left to die. Clearly in need of immediate help his
  6. After watching the game against Dunfermline then on to beat County in the next game, this was so so similar. Robbo got it spot on. The Tuesday performance was a gear below that yesterday. He gave United something on Tuesday to take it all back yesterday. Our lads were immense. Fortress Tannadice ! Played them off the park from start to finish. It indeed is a fine day to be in Dundee ! Perfect !
  7. So you'd be happy to lose the youth?. Go part time ? Please also if you could quantify and clarify your boardroom points I'd be all ears. Along with the long term plan. Personally I don't have an ego that needs boosted and I m pretty sure none of the others do either but if you think you can do a better job by all means get in touch . My email.is [email protected] I do this for nothing. I've put a bloody fortune into our club to keep it going so glib remarks like that **** me right off.
  8. I have my Thistle boys club membership card from season 76'77 . I was number 7. The money I've put into the club in the past is in the past and I agree the best answer is to get a winning team on the park entertaining the b'Jesus out of all and sundry but in the meantime we need to try and establish a firm financial reliable basis for this club, our club, to survive. Without outside help from us, or an Ann Budge etc, it won't. I ve put well I to six figures iinto the coffers and I'm running on empty now so formulating a plan now is most certainly required
  9. I'm not sure , just because we have a smaller fan base than Hearts we are that much different. We have smaller everything but importantly no real pressing debt just cash flow.
  10. it would go direct to ICT that's where funds are required.
  11. We could have two funds , with the contributions going directly into the player budget or youth........or care and maintenance !!!
  12. DD, I m flying a personal thought which is bourne out by real and credible concerns that the club is looking at losses for another year . Just common sense . Its my idea . They ve all seen it cos they now know who the mysterious Sheepslagger with the nice bike is ! For instance if the fans monthly contributions were going directly into the managers budget this would be a way that they could see their hard earned going to immediate good use. Rathar than a the care and maintenance budget ! Are there 500 -1000 fnas out there up for putting £5 - £10 a week into the club ?
  13. The point of this is Ann Budge invested to get them.out of admin and moving again. They d gone bust. We haven't got an Ann Budge but on the bright side haven't gone bust. We have got their amount if fans. From recollection they have 8000 members contributing , but that shouldn't put us off.
  14. Definitely give the fans the influence. As in governance and decisions.
  15. https://www.foundationofhearts.org/ I d like to run this idea past you all and gather thoughts. Back in June 2013 another one of the Scottish stalwart clubs went into administration. Hearts went over the edge and were only saved by Ann Budge and brought back to life . After that the Foundation of Hearts was founded and since then it has grown and provided their club with a steady substantial income derived from their fans. This looks like sustaining Hearts for the future, as long as the governance remains as it is at present. My question is what is the reaction to a similar Fo
  16. On the West Stand queery There is no real problem about standing there , its just about stewarding. I ve suggested we re allocate stewards but it would be helpful of you could put any requests to the email address [email protected] I can then forward them on to whoever and can hopefully get them dealt with. Also I ll lose any questions on the forum cos of scrolling through and missing things. You know what I mean. Anyway you now know where I am . There s no hiding place !!
  17. The games are scheduled to be played at 7.05 pm cos the new BBC Scotland channel news starts at 9pm . Thats the only reason. Its not ideal for the clubs especially if you take into consideration the possibility of hospitality sales. I m afraid the clubs had no say in this and the kick off times were only told to us at a meeting with the BBC a couple of weeks ago. Personally I think they could move the news one night a week to 9.30 start. Whats the harm? From recollection there will be 26 games per year and we should have 2 home games televised.
  18. Email is sorted . Up and running . Myself on the other hand has a heed like a box of rockets after going a bit mental last night. Spoke to Yvonne CEO, and she ll be getting copied in to help me direct questions , requests etc. Usual service will resume the morn. What a game !!!! If Carlsberg made Scottish Cup replays.
  19. I ve asked the lad at the club to make sure its open and I can get into it. It will definitely sorted in the next 24 hours.
  20. I can assure you that Im not relishing in our limited progress this year. My wee lad was in tears after the QoS game a few weeks ago. I ken how he feels. I ll be up the morn again. And again . Please come and say hello the morn if youre passing. F**k me gently, we need a win the morn.
  21. From what I know Liam Dalgarno and Gordy Fyffe on our Board along with Charlie Christie are organizing a load of other things for the 25th anniversary. This is just one thing . The tickets are`nt cheap at £100 plus VAT per skull but hopefully we can raise plenty dosh for the club. To be honest cannae mind getting an email about it myself. I ll try and find out where the list of things that are planned for the ICT25 year are.
  22. Hers a thought, I ve got an email address at the stadium which I havent used yet. I ll make sure its up and running tomorrow and if I dinna get back with answers in reasonable time get back to me and remind me. I ve got my own businesses down in Dundee, where I live and work, so i havent got buckets of spare time but I can sometimes forget things . [email protected] On the West Stand , it makes sense for folk wanting to stand. If its a cost issue , which makes sense , I ll get back and tell you. Cannae see any other reason. It would help if you send me bullet points so I
  23. On the Angus Beith question , Im up tomorrow and will ask Robbo what the outcome is but from what I ve been told in the past is that there was a recurring injury which was expected to clear up but just hasnt up to now so it doesnt look good for the lad. I ll ask John to clarify the situation when I see him. The other question that was asked was George Oakley. The club was between a rock and a hell of a hard place. We did not want to lose him but contract up in the summer and he wanted to play SPL football for Hamilton and it was one of his old gaffers that he knew he was go
