"We all know football is a business and as such, regardless of how talented the players are individually, or how dedicated the supporters are, the team’s performance is fundamentally influenced by the management. The players and the fans are not responsible for DFC's critical financial position; despite the obvious pressure on them, the punishing circumstances caused by dysfunctional management, etc., the players continued to demonstrate flashes of winning form on the pitch, thus proving their true worth and justifying the fans loyal support. It follows therefore, get the management right and the club will thrive, like any successful business! I just hope the eventual new owners, whether a co-operative of fans and commerce, or a White Knight, have the presence of mind to engage a management team that is every bit as capable as the players (and fans) have demonstrated they can be! It seems to me, given Dundee's iconic history, its international exposure, etc., that the cash injection required to square the current financial position and to successfully build the DFC brand, is a relatively cheap investment opportunity for someone?"
