    Goardan Strachan

    Another over rated pundit. Took Coventry doon, took Southampton doon, took Middlesbrough into the playoffs- relegation playoffs- before being sacked.
    Success at Celtic, but that is nothing to boast about.
    Thin Nelms knows his futba

    Cannae see Goodwin working well under him. See Goodwin as someone who would like to be his own man, but time will tell.

    Strachans ego is gigantic and will fit perfectly into the space left by McCanns.

    Is that a Dee thing?

    Indeed we do Peter but always time to have a wee look at the big team shenanigans

    "McPake would be a mistake, too early, too inexperienced"

    Then Goodwin pulls out and it's

    "One of our own, he'll get the fans onside etc"

    Has it never occurred to you that you're being taken for a ride?

    Neil McCann set your club back about 5 years (Cobra would disagree) and your directors are about to take the same route again? Thoughts?

    Not sure about the whole thing to be honest...looks a typical PR disaster from our board...thought after the clusterfu@k with the last appointment they would've got their man in place before any announcements were put out...McCann wasn't a good appointment but the problems were building before he came.... after United were relegated in 2016 we sold Harkins Stewart and Hemmings which accounted for around 50 goals that season and to this day haven't replaced them with anyone close to their ability....if you can't score goals and are quite good at conceding them you'll only end up in one place and we're there

    Just have to wait and see how it pans out.You boys thought shabba was a great appointment and we all know how that ended.
    If it was your club employing strachan I,m sure plenty of arabs would be pleased.

    Hi Eric. I'm one Arab that wouldn't want Strachan at my club. Arrogant, egotistical, difficult, moody, prickly are just some of the adjective I would use why.

    Obviously he's a kinda Dee favourite and I can see why you'd get excited but I'm not so sure. If it happens it'll deffo be interesting though.

    Guilty as charged on Shabba, but it was just one more disaster in a long line.

    And apart from Strachan having a Dee history, the boys no right in the head!

    What's interesting to me about this is what qualifies Strachan for a director of football role? Has he ever done this type of thing before? So, potentially, a rookie manger and a rookie DoF.

    Ditto.

    I can understand the Dees welcoming him. But, sadly for them, I think it's all gonna end in tears.

    Dundee appear to be going through what we endured throughout the Jackie McNamuppet, Mixu, Raymondo era. No clear direction, random off the cuff decision making which stinks of something rotten within the club.

    Thankfully, we appear to slowly dragging ourselves out of the mire. But I see a hard few seasons ahead for the dark blue faithful.

    I remember frequently thinking that we had hit rock bottom. Only to be proved that we had further to fall with some really embarassing performances and results.

    Thank feck for MarkO and Robbie. Finally got us heading in the right direction.

    Looks like you can't get a job there unless your called either Jimmy or Mac something or other

    "Can we get a quick word Gordon" ? ................ "velocity" .............. great reply. He has been trying to live up to that remark ever since then. Would be better concentrating on the pitch rather than the media.

    Is velocity even a quick word? 🤔🙂

    Don't be pedantic Terry

    "the speed of something in a given direction." it is a noun describing such .

    I just think if GS spent more time thinking about football rather than clever retorts , he may have been more likable to the general public.

    ( smart erse ) springs to mind.

    But the speed of the object could actually be very slow. He needs to think about this MORE. 🙂
