    What an outstanding fan group the Foundation are. If anything, they should now see a sudden spike in memberships.
    Why would you expect to see a sudden spike in membership, it’s a fans group the club have publicly announced they don’t want to work with so what use would it be to collect more money, unless of course it would be to buy the Ogden’s out?

    I wouldn't want to put words in your mouth, but your post could imply that the Ogren family will be here for ever. They publicly stated on day 1 that they were here to make money (not a criticism). So, in a pandemic time, when we are all questioning why governments didn't plan for the unexpected, would it be wrong for DUSF to grow a fund to expect the 'unexpected'? Maybe that is why true fans should maybe look to join DUSF at this time. The last 20 years should tell us that Scottish football club ownership is transient.

    In that case DUSF need to amend their Articles of Association as their objective 5.1.1 to 5.1.5 are not applicable

    First sensible viewpoint in favour of DUSF Iíve heard. But asking supporters to help grow a fund for no other reason than, what if? is a tad bizarre imo. At least with ArabTRUST you know where the money is going, how itís helping the club. Think Iím more of a here and now sort of person, worrying about the what ifís is not something I tend to do.

    Just realised Iíd referred to the owners as the Ogdens lol next Iíll be seeing ducks on the wall!

    Something missing here, a piece of the jigsaw we're missing.

    Reading the DUSF clarification document it looks like negotiations were polite and friendly.

    But then like a bolt from the blue United come out with a very blunt statement that they will no longer do business with DUSF in any shape or form. That paints a very different picture.

    Something happened. At least it looks to me from a distance that something happened.
    Otherwise why would United immediately and without warning close off the potential for fan group funding of £100k?

    It's unlikely United will ever divulge what happened but something happened. For sure.

    And you know what, the new owners have been in the door 5 minutes, we're moving in the right direction and yet you're seeing these pathetic comments like "temporary custodians" "won't be here forever" power play posturing from some people involved in these groups, albeit under usernames on message boards etc almost as if they're wanting the Ogrens away, and undermining them.

    What the actual fk is wrong with all these people that they feel a need to be a big fish in a wee pool. It's a sad state of affairs. Let this be a warning. Time for one supporter group under one banner.

    Scaremongering Stoke, it’s what a section of the support has become very accustomed to, and it’s mostly the same faces involved at the head of these groups, shame really as I often hear ‘he’s a good lad’ ‘passionate Arab’ , but most of us can be described as such, it’s just some seem to hold higher ambitions than to just support the football team. It’s been far to political at Tannadice for far too long.

    You were actually making reasoned and logical points, until now. Someone has to stick their head above the parapet (without an username, to quote Stoke). It is a particularly Dundee thing to then go and knock these people. I know some of the DUSF people and they work bloody hard for no personal gain.
