    In the modern history of Dundee Football Club, John Bennett’s name should be high on the list of people who have stood up when they have been really needed.

    As all Dark Blues fans know, John has already played the role of a financial white knight during the 2010-11 administration season, helping secure the CVA that allowed the club to fight on.

    And before that he put forward the money to buy Dens Park in 2008. That allowed Dundee to clear their debts from the 2003 administration and boosted cash flow.

    At the weekend John Nelms rightly paid tribute to John for his “very generous and selfless gesture” of suspending rent on the stadium that he will be owed during a time when no money is coming into the club. That won’t be peanuts.

    I’ve only met John once, but the fact that he was first on the phone to the club when this crisis kicked in says everything about him.

    Yes, he’s a Dundee United fan and former Dundee United director but first and foremost he’s a football man who has been a great friend to both of the city clubs.

    John Nelms and Tim Keyes also deserve credit for taking out insurance that could prove to be *****.

    There will be more problems ahead but with the likes of John Bennett in their corner, Dundee’s chances of coming through this troubling period are greatly enhanced.
    Can tell Nelms to forget his derbies as we can boycott.

    Also Mr Bennett wants his rent and it is going up ....

    The dundee proposal of no promotion could work - only us and ICT might oppose.

    That would leave ICT in worse position with no promise of the league reconstruction

    Just got to cross our fingers that the only fair way is followed.

    If we do not go up then the game is a bogey

    The fairest way is to complete the season, behind closed doors with a water tight testing regime in place.

    If this isn't possible (logistically this does seem unlikely) the current proposal is probably as good as it gets.

    We'll just have to sit tight and see what happens. 🤔

    I agree entirely Terry.

    And unitedís position has always been that we would want to finish the league.

    Basic fairness must play a part.

    That is why the dundee proposal is a disgrace and one they should never be allowed to forget.

    Scottish football loses credibility if the whole season has been about nothing

    You are right, what they are proposing is getting the money but voiding the season.

    Correct TTT, this is Null And Void via the back door.

    I think the only sure way to get things through is if reconstruction involving promotions only with no relegations is presented. You presume that that is the genuine next stage. Not this farcical crackpot Funster scheme.

    The Huns to submit a new proposal to push through prize money now, with no leagues declared, after their initial proposal was refused.

    They are ****ing DESPERATE!! What an embarrassment of a football club.

    If this fails. No Arab should ever pay to step inside the trolleydome they call Dens ever again. I certainly won't.

    Why not just test 20 players and trainers from each side and transport them to the faros for a month of bliss and isolation and play out the remaining games on TV. Like the WC, 20 named people, no replacements, just get it done. A game every 3 days and the seasons over.

    So, just to get this straight, the Funny Chief is rejecting the current motion on the grounds that it prevents promotion for Dundee and instead presents a fresh proposal which...............prevents promotion for Dundee. I’ve got this correct, yes?
