    Scott robertson

    Welcome home, GTF or meh....

    I always had more of a problem with Dixon than Robertson and nowhere near the contempt I hold for dodds.

    I'm probably keep the heid Doon and do a good job.

    Could have have got this all wrong as it was a while ago.

    He was
    Dundee FC fan
    Club captain
    Refused to sign a contract when we were skint
    Fecked off to the Dabs with no fee to us

    Heís a chunt , thatís what I think

    Never really think players can be fans, too busy trying to be players, a lot of players become more of a fan when retired.....his family were Dundee fans.

    Club capt....probably but can't remember to be honest.

    His contract came to an end though compared to kev McDonald it was a bit shoddy.

    Not the best choice of club to move too but think that was more to do with his guru.

    Not disagreeing with your opinion I'm just curious to see what the body of the kirk think.

    a watered down version
    contract ended,he exercised his rights when others have put pen to paper and had a gentlemans agreement to go when a bid comes in

    just the way i remember it

    me personally i wouldnt have invited back for a job within the club

    however who knows what went on,just my opinion on what i think i remember

    however he is here now so

    Claimed he wanted to advance his career and himself outside the local area, Hibs being strong favourites to sign him. Decided otherwise and should never be allowed back. Is there seriously no other ex-player who could manage to take on this role?

    We are dyed in the wool fans so wouldn't do what he did.

    So on that front wouldn't have him back.

    On the other hand, each of us has to decide what best to do for our family and as I don't know his full story i will back the judgement of the manager that he can do a job now.

    There was nothing wrong with Scott Robertson's decision as a professional footballer to sign for any other team. One close to home on higher wages and a league above at the time has some logic - I have no beef about that.

    That Scott Robertson, while a Dundee player made a great deal about being a Dee up until a few days before leaving is the issue for me. In football terms it's like your lass leaving you for some chunt you just don't like. A sore ane. Scott did not try and kill the club, nor has he gone on social media to slate the club that brought him through, as Dixon did.

    Scott handled his departure badly and that hurt, my disappointment in him remains, but he is nothing like a Dodds or Dixon. He should be allowed to quietly get on with the job, hopefully he is older, wiser and will do a great job with our youngsters.

    If he'd acknowledged that the froots had tapped him up illegally but he would still be signing up with them, that would be somewhat professional. He kept it all secret, though. Probably bring his medal into boys training to show them all what's possible if you're a snake. Out of sight, hopefully.

    Is Wilkie any different to Robertson, think I'd be right in saying you're not too fond of the former? Neither Dodds the player nor Dixon cost the club a potential transfer fee, not sure what Dodds the co-manager has to do with it. Why not compare Judas to McDonald, same time, similar situations?

    Dodds attempted to close the club....unforgivable.

    Dixon is a complete prick.

    McDonald's attitude was great, very few like that.

    Wilkie I don't really like because he's biased in his ghost written column and changes his mind every few weeks depending on the last couple of results for us or they ****s.

    Robertson as under 18 coach I can easily live with, Mcpake wanting to appoint him as asst manager probably not.

    I made my decision over the dodds affair couldn't see me handing back a season ticket over an under 18 coach.

    I hope he keeps his head Doon, works hard and does well for the boys he's training and the club.

    Will I be sending him a Xmas card? Probably not.....unlikely to get there anyway with the Gpo.

    I've absolutely no problem guys feeling more strongly than that......I thought there would be a mixed opinion it's why I asked the question.

    for me, McPake wants him to do a job. Want him and Robertson to succeed, don't care that he went and played for our neighbours.

    I know Scott robertsons parents, both ardent Dundee supporters, and I was stunned when he went across the road.
    Only thing I can say in his favour is that he has never criticised Dundee off or on the park to my knowledge.
    I agree with a previous poster, there must be ex Dee candidates with coaching credentials that could have been considered.
    Although I don't think it's fair to have a go at mcpake at this stage.

    Eric he got a card that only had his street on it, it went through Edinburgh mail centre like any other item, they could have destroyed it as incomplete address but they did there best and eventually got it t the rightful home, Iíd be delighted with that kind of service but some just like to moan for the sake of it, Iím looking to join noahís gang he has some valid points 😁

    Dodds did what he did and is now no longer welcome at Dens, Robertson should be the same after his snakey behaviour given Dundee spent years developing him. For a backroom role in charge of kids, I'd really have thought there were plenty options. Bad enough Dave Mackay after his comments, this is taking the piss. Time for the fans to get a say in appointments, it's our club after all

    If it had Radio 1 tickets in it he wouldn’t have got it.
