Dundee (A) - Sunday 28th July

Recommended Posts

Progression is in our own hands as they say.

I actually think the winner takes all situation surrounding this game is a good thing and could serve as a good platform for the start of the season, will certainly give an insight as to how level the playing field is.

Like ourselves Dundee haven't had it all their own way in the last three games and they'll be eager to prove a point that they are indeed worthy of their title contenders tag that most expect from them. New manager, new Technical Director and big turnover of players means I'm not so sure.

Saying that we'll need to be on the ball and defensively a lot better than the last three games, I expect to see us start tighter but believe we need to take the game to them from the start. Don't think there will be many changes in personnel, if any,  but maybe a change in tactics and approach.

Cautiously optimistic

We certainly need to sort the defence out that's for sure. Far too many gaps in there that Peterhead (albiet without scoring thanks to Ridgers) Cove and Raith exploited. We seem to be creating chances at the other end though - just need to hit the target at a better ratio. Tough one to call - it'll be down to who wants it the most.

Judging by our last Sunday outing to Dundee, I can expect Joe Chalmers to return after giving County the finger and scoring another ballon d'or worthy goal...and Robbo pitch invading when Doran heads it home at the death...

A good test of a changing team. There is no lack of talented individuals in this current caley team. Play as a team that is the test. We await the result. Get intae them...it will not define the season but will highlight direction of travel...

Dundee has become our "do or die" away venue. Early days of course but progression (irrespective of how) would be a real boost.

Anything other than a defeat in 90 minutes will see us through: the four best runners up currently have 8 or 9 points. Our goal difference is better than East Fife’s, currently the fourth best runner up. 

Hopefully we don’t play for a draw but set out to win the game.

The good ol’ beeb still has East Fife on 7. Haven’t added their bonus point.

P.S. Let’s do this.

Even if we win the group, we will be unseeded so will face one of Celtic, Rangers, Aberdeen, Kilmarnock, Hibs, Motherwell, Livingston or..... County. 

Not sure if being unseeded means we are away or whether we can get a home draw.

I seem to remember it being half and half.

Are you a secret Kilmarnock supporter who bought their ticket to Belgrade before the easy win against Connah's Quay? Until we get there, the next round is irrelevant.

Front Row in my man cave in Chorley suits me fine. Vodka chilling in preparation. One game at a time, one double voddie at a time. 🥃

Didn't say we were going through for certain. Just saying where I was hoping we'll be going if we do...

Ko    Same team as Cove game.   thought Robbo might have started with Todorov who looked a hellofalot brighter and mobile than White.
