Would The Return Of Recognised Proven Goal Scorers, Bring Back The Missing Dundee Fans?
"Darren O’Dea believes in Dens Park, Dundee have a pitch that is prepared perfectly for the way they want to play" .... Online Tele.
It's a pity that message wisnae spread aroond the DFC players fae the middle o' December, before we went on to lose 6 games at home.
I'm Not Saying Being A Fitba Manager Is A Good Or Bad Job.But It's Certainly Precarious Not Without It's Worries.By Gedee
I've added this Topic to Dundee FC Chat .... Not because I am advocating Robbie Neilson as a future replacement for NM.
But because when reading what he had to say about his own career, I thought it was relevant to near every Fitba Manager.
When Neilson left Hearts they were second in Premiership...He took MK Dons from relegation to 12th place .... And One year after 21st place ... Left by mutual consent
He also makes a "telling" short summary in the article about what must be an on-going pressure for I would think, all struggling managers .... Maybe worth a wee read?
It is maybe unfounded (or still too early) but eh cannae get this fear o' DFC relegation oot o' meh mind.
The Topic with the following detail, coupled with the posts that follow, may ease or increase my worry.
The simple scenario choices are this....
1) Neil McCann remains Manager.
2) NM goes. Recruit New Manager.
3) NM with an Experienced Mentor.
(I understand this will be no more than a discussion point, with no right or wrong answer. And whatever conclusion is reached, the BOD are no' gonna act on anyting we say)
Choice 1) It is no my intention to "put down" NM here, because I still think he is going through a learning process and may well turn out to be something special. But at this time, most would agree (I think) he is still feeling his way & making some basic, obvious mistakes. I am putting this down to lack of managerial experience. NM's potential qualities are there (imo) ... But we cannot be expected (in our position) to allow basic errors to continue on his road to learning, while we are losing points. But on the other hand NM may well be the best bet at this time to avoid the drop.
Even Choice 2 for those who feel NM must be removed as quickly as possible is no easy solution ... And without going on to a range of details, which would affect even this decision (eg money) ... Who would we get? And who would want the job? (in these circumstances)
Choice 3 Is the one I would opt for ... But (imo) this is never gonna happen. Bringing in an older, much more experienced manager (mentor/adviser), who has had past, proven successes, might just be possible (I believe their are good names out there. who might consider this) But where it would come to a sudden halt would be trying to sell this idea to NM? In my view, although I could see this as bringing benefits, I believe NM would see this as blatant interference, as well as an afront to himself, as a person & as a manager.
So that freends is basically meh thoughts.You may have more ideas. But at my age eh really dinnae need this fear o' relegation
So however it's done DFC, let's start picking up these points. Let "the fear" pass on to other struggling clubs. The Mighty Dee
Around about a year ago, someone posted a grand image of Dundee City with Tay Road Bridge ... Highlighting DFC
But "fiddling & piddling aboot" eh seemed to have lost it My Grandson helped me with this New One. Any Others?
Wonder How Long It Takes Dundee Players & Fans to Get Over A Poor Performance & A Bad Unexpected Defeat?By Gedee
DFC Fans & Supporters...Strangely I am (I think) generally a pretty positive person and when things get me down I (actively) work hard at it, to get myself out of a rut (when it is in my own hands to do so) I know the effect long term depression can have on myself & those around me ... So as I say, I work hard at it, to avoid it. However when DFC get beaten as in the circumstances above, I think it does seem to hit me far more than it should. I don't scream & shout. But I do withdraw... And it takes me quite some time to get back to normal ... Normal? Weel ye ken whit eh mean
In the great scheme o' things, Dundee FC losing, is no quite the end of the world. But jings it can feel like that at times.
Guess others must feel much the same (& you can feel it in the posts) Do you? On the plus side a DFC Win is jist braw
Now DFC Players .... No' gonna gie the players as much time as I gave myself because it's awe their fault eh feel Seek
Logically of course, there's no' really an answer tae that. Mainly 'cause they're awe different & it's probably...Jist a Job
(So Dundee, ye noo ken whit you have to dae ... Beat Celtic, then eh'm a Happy Mannie)
