    Dundee V Hibs

    The first hibs goal was a very bad imitation of killlies opener. Odea is slow but imo his positional sense is better than The Gens which would improve us.

    He's done it since he arrived. Players with good technical ability will always try and beat him from distance because they'll know that he likes to wander from his line. I think he's been beaten from distance more than once and there's been one or two very close calls as well. When he first arrived he was camped on the halfway line when we we're taking corners. He was was constantly chirping away at JM asking to go up for the corner. Goalkeepers being a bit mad and venturing upfield are great entertainment but we're really struggling if we're relying on our keeper digging us out of a hole and scoring goals. JM needs to get him telt pronto.

    I've still to watch it but Sutton has grown on me, yes he likes to be controversial at times but he does call things pretty straight.

    How many goals has O'Dea flogged in his 92 appearances for Dundee? Not many. There was a careless lunge at Ibrox which gave away a penalty but he was clearly unfit that day. How many goals has Kusunga flogged in his 32 appearances? He's only been at Dens a year and already you could put out a DVD featuring his f**k-ups. The last time we saw a quality defensive display from Dundee was the 0-0 v Livi when we coped brilliantly with their aerial onslaught. O'Dea played that day and Kusunga didn't. Some folk will continue to insist that we're better off with the Angolan in the team even though we've never looked in any danger of keeping a clean sheet in 2019. Baffling.

    Could be a very valuable lesson for him and I hope that JMs analysis on the game will take the same viewpoint as you. I worry about our defence, we just don't seem to get it that pressure on the opposition in the middle third of the pitch is essential. Hope there is some attempt to get the players to take a look at what opponents like Hibs did to us when ever we got the ball. Object lesson in putting pressure on us in the middle third of the pitch. We also need to find a way of using our body weight to ease opponents off the ball. Must be something to do with moving quicker into the tackle and not trying to back off. It must be something to do with training IMO. Refs let us get eased off the ball all the time but for some reason when we do, what looks to me to be exactly the same tactic we end up giving away a foul and even getting booked. What is the answer?

    I've kind of fell away from it this season for some reason. I'll have a look at my team and see if I can do a McIntyre-esque rise from the ashes....

    I'm guessing he's suggesting that you'll likely be beaten.

    Mistakes

    Answer is lack of ability. If you are making that many mistakes then you are not good enough fo that level.

    Not going to say he had a very good game but he certainly played well enough; many of his passes were over hit or went astray but otherwise solid enough. No idea why some people find it necessary to have one player that they single out for constant criticism (says he guy that often enough couldn't bear to see Cammy Kerr in a Dundee top ) but Woods seems to be flavour of the month for a few posters.

    I"d like to say I told you so but I kept my p#s shut because I was well in the minority,. But I always felt there was a little bit of the showboater in him and sooner or later it would cost us goals.

    Bad results aye look better the day after. But I'm no sure on this occasion,that is the case. In a pre-game post on here, I said somethings along the lines of ... Although ideally a fine DFC winning performance, was what we all were after, I'd be willing to forego a good performance, if it meant, we could take/steal, a point or three from the game. So a game that left DFC with no' additional points (especially in our precarious position) is no gonna leave me overjoyed !! However, although there was obvious mistakes in DFC's defence, which led to Hib's goals ... and have been well pointed out & documented in the pasts posts, there was (imo) a great deal to like in the way Dundee players approached the game ... And kept at it for the whole 90 minutes. In the main, they had drive, passion, intensity and a willingness & determination to give their all. (This is only an opinion, & taken from the perspective of NOT being at the game, but the perspective of BT) So if this had been a "scrappy" game & DFC had played throughout really poorly, but managed to steal a much needed point then would I have been happier then? By what I've said previously. I certainly should have been. But I'm not sure. In my eyes, the Dundee Players under JM are improving in each game. And although leaving last night's game pointless, I realistically cannot see how (what I see as progress) will not continue BUT I ACCEPT WE REALLY DO NEED THE POINTS & TOUGH GAMES AHEAD !!

    Kusunga at fault for 3 of the goals imo. He has to clear his lines at the first. We switch off at the throw in for the second but Horgan simply doesn't score from the right back position near the touchline, Kusunga has to stick with his man instead of dumping him and charging out. At the third Kusunga loses McNulty three times before charging out again, after attempting to pass McNulty on to another defender.

    Mistakes

    The 2nd goal is something you would see on a public park....so easy, we have to work so hard for our goals yet Hibs got that one handed on a plate.... Despite that, i thought we played well at times, but losing 4 goals at home only means one thing.
  19. Dundee manager Jim McIntyre blamed both individual errors and wrong refereeing decisions for their 4-2 home defeat to Hibs. The post Dundee boss Jim McIntyre laments individual errors and wrong refereeing decisions appeared first on The Courier. View the full article

    I know that O'Dea has had his injury problems but he's really struggling if they're now needing to stitch his brain on just to get him through games.

    Yes agree keeper should have saved it BBC saying it’s contender for goal of the month FFS

    His positioning has, for me, been suspect from day one. He's an upgrade on what we've seen in the goalkeeping position this season but he really needs to learn when to stay closer to his line. He catches or parries Mallan's shot if he's on his line imo.
  23. gblue

    Dundee V Hibs

    Zico above was my take on Kusunga some posters don’t blame him for the 3rd goal but the Hibs player was never challenged and had all the time in the world to find his man who then scored.

    Mistakes

    Individual defensive mistakes have been a feature in practically every one of our fixtures this season. Despite new players and a new manager, it shows no sign of coming to an end. Is it because of players lack of professionalism, lack of concentration or lack of commitment from loan players? Whatever the reason it may cost us our place in the division, an unthinkable disaster. Clean sheets are going to be even more vital, unfortunately they seem as far away as ever.

    Woods had a very good game last night imo.

    Very frustrating but among the negatives there were a lot of positives. How Beaten can justify not giving the penalty at 0 v 0 or not even carding the lad for his kick out at McGowan is inexcusable. Both would have been game changing decisions if he gets them correct. The entire back four and keeper had poor games, the keeper should definitely save the fourth, great strike yes, but its at a good height for a keeper, he gets across with the dive early enough to get both hands to it but completely mistimes the “push” out part of the save for me and it results in inevitable goal. Kusunga was a bomb scare all night, was surprised that he didn’t get hooked at half time for a ODea, we really have to hope that Davies makes a full recovery and gets up to match fitness very quickly and soon, but until then ODea must start instead of Kusunga. Horsefield had his poorest game for us, but like with Kerr I’m not surprised given Curren was in front of him, the guy just can’t defend and his back tracking and cover is woeful which will always put more pressure on the right back. McGowan (goal aside) is not up to it now, yes he scored a great goal, but he offers very little and if we do stay up then I don’t see JM keeping him next season. On the positives, Wright was again our best threat, always looking to take someone on and causes problems to the opposition, Robson looked good when he came on, will expect either him or OSullivan to replace Jesse on Wednesday unless he starts with Miller and moves Wright to the right. Curran put in another decent shift until he had to go off and I thought Miller played really well when he came on, will need to see the goals again but they looked great finishes and he seemed to time his movement well. The great thing is we never gave up and kept pushing forward, also unlike pre January we now have good and various options to come from the bench. Tough three games coming up where we are unlikely to get anything so over those same three games we have to hope st mirren and Hamilton don’t pick up very much. Then it’s strap yourself in as the Dens roller coaster will be in top gear and going at full throttle and I think we have the players who will be up for it.

    From a standing start he’s off the pace, gets caught on his heels, he also finds it impossible to make even a short pass without shifting the ball to his better foot. As for his concentration, let’s not go there.
