    Dug out switch

    No sure what the idea behind it is.

    Always thought the home side bench better behind the linesman.

    Defo be be better switching home fans behind the other goal

    Coxy is soulless ,isolated and deffo at the wrong end of the ground, a much better home atmosphere could be generated with the home fans all in one area and the away fans isolated

    Prefer being in the Bobby Cox, plus the bricks are in there of passed away relatives which I like to visit.
    You’d only get chunts moaning that it was a further walk from the shop where they already moan about having to go for a ticket ��

    Shops in wrong place, everything disconnected really, badly designed when new stands went up.

    It will all be sorted when we move to our brand spanking new rented stadium in the year two thousand and never.....good news to follow soon lol.

    On a side note pitch looked splendid surrounded by an absolute ****hole of a ground.

    I don't visit the cox often but I never mind to bring my wellies to wade through the puddle and gutters.....maybe should have a reminder on the ticket.....and still no proper storage.

    **** most respected

    Would mean away fans and home fans crossing outside the main stand after the games as away fans head for buses unless away fans got delayed exiting for 15 minutes so would be absolutely the wrong thing to do. Just one of the many limitations Dens has but we'd better get use to it I suppose because once again it's gone very quiet on the 'new stadium' front.

    As John Lydon once said 'ha ha ha, ever get the feeling you've been cheated?'.

    The froots have about 50 buses coming from out the town to their home games, where would you park all them

    I'm not getting into a discussion about this but how many buses would you get there? Would it be enough to cover a visit from Celtic, The Rangers, Hearts or Hibs? Didn't think so. Even the fruity mob across the road bring too many buses to Dundee to accommodate there.

    Last time they were at Dens they brought 1,742......now that would be about 6 buses giving around 20% of fans travel by bus.

    None of the big clubs are in our league unless you count "comfortably the 6th biggest"🤣.....so every team would get their wagons parked up.

    Overspill could easily be the provie rd but away fans ain't my concern it's making the atmosphere better in Dens and helping the team when things get tight.

    We cud have asked the polis for permission to try out this season but unfortunately our board and most respected ain't interested in suggestions about how to improve things.

    I live in hope of one day seeing a storage shed.

    This happened for years, we’ve had old firm in provie and tc keay at same time, we’ve had them in Derry in past, all it would mean is the police would actually have to police the area

    If we get promoted do we go back to Coxy?

    I did go with Jdfc suggestion but of course by the time we get promoted it may not be an issue with camperdown.😁

    We can go on and on hoping for a different atmosphere by continuing to house our own fans all over the place.

    The dabs changed home ends and fans mix after the game and I don't remember it going all the way to the high court for authority.

    Or the polis could put an old fashioned barrier across the street to stop fans mixing aka 1977 to 85ish.

    It's not an impossible switch and would have 3 main benefits.

    Help the team

    Bring all our fans closer together

    The moaners more easily drowned out.

    Win win win

    And does anyone know why we have switched dug outs or even a theory?

    Guessing you'd have to switch the family section to the other side of the stand where away fans would no longer be when there's only a handful of them? Good idea but not one the brass would remotely consider given they lack any imagination, which if they had, they could look to join the SE and Coxy up with a standing area in that dead zone

    Good question. Maybe to stop idiot managers running up to the fans in The Shankly when their team scores? Or maybe just a better view of the pitch?

    Does it mean that away players will now be warming up in front of The Coxy and ours in front of The Shankly? Wasn't at the Blackpool game myself to see.

    In a nutshell.

    It's so simple it's scary.

    There's even enough room behind the shankly to make an exit onto the Dens Road and open up the original Derry steps for an entrance to an from the Derry.

    I realise they don't want to spend anything on the ground but they spend a lot to maintain it to ****ey levels anyway.

    Noticed tannadice getting spruced up the other day (all the turnstile doors getting repainted) all I see at Dens is botch jobs, neglect and the worst bits being covered by Kilmac banners.

    There is no need for your current home to be a tip whilst waiting on a new council house, why is Dens a tip when we employ a stadium manager to manage it?
