FEEL­ING THE BLUES

Dundee fans have been vent­ing their anger af­ter a poor start to the sea­son con­tin­ued against Brechin City in midweek. The Mas­ter said: “Plenty of things that make it ob­vi­ous that we aren’t go­ing to im­prove: the body lan­guage, not hav­ing a clue about mak­ing sub­sti­tu­tions and the fact that we’ve signed so many in­jured play­ers.” But Fife­spud is of a dif­fer­ent opin­ion. “I just think he de­serves a bit more time. There has been dra­matic prun­ing ow­ing to bud­get cuts thanks to Jocky’s in­dis­crim­i­nate splashing of cash.”

BOBBY DAZ­ZLER

The fans have also been vot­ing on who they want to re­place Gor­don Chisholm if he does in­deed leave. Dream Oak Tree says: “I think Gus McPher­son’s the man for the job, as he’s done it be­fore with sim­i­lar or less re­sources” while Uni claims: “My in­sider at Dundee has tipped Bobby Wil­liamson to take the reigns are Dens.”

FOR BET­TER OR WORSE

Dum­bar­ton fans have come up with a novel plan af­ter man­ager Jim Chap­man said that they would play worse and win af­ter last week­end’s de­feat to Ayr. Par­ti­zan Bogheid quips: “Sounds like a plan then: keep play­ing worse and maybe we’ll win a game. Could be what he’s been try­ing for.” Ayr fan Cliché Gue­vara is hav­ing none of it though. “Ayr were ter­ri­ble. Had we not been I think Dum­bar­ton would have been ham­mered. You re­ally should re­serve com­ments like his for games when you play re­ally well, dom­i­nate, cre­ate loads of chances and are ul­ti­mately un­lucky.”

EGG ON YOUR FACE

First Di­vi­sion fans have been talk­ing about their worst pur­chases from the club shop. Falkirk fan Trump said: “I re­mem­ber my mate bought his dad a Falkirk FC egg cup for Christ­mas last year.” Mor­ton fan Ayr­shireTon added: “I bought a pine-fresh car air fresh­ener, but it dried out af­ter a day or two.” This­tle fan OTIG_FTOF had an idea for new mer­chan­dise. “We should sell voodoo dolls of Ian McCall, Al­lan Cowan and Tom Hughes,” he sug­gests. “They would be a highly lu­cra­tive rev­enue stream for the club at this se­verely test­ing fi­nan­cial time.”
