Can someone help this guy?

Of course it will. We have other players ready to strengthen the team now, but if you prefer to wallow in misery, don't let me stop you. I just won't be joining you.

Not remotely bothered we're out of the cup, but of course 3-0 doesn't look good. Was just getting used to 2-0 too. 

I suspect the manager will be quite happy to be out the cup even if he won't admit it.

Total focus now on staying in the league. I'm sure we'll deliver a far better performance than tonight when we go down to Hamilton.

Our centre-backs having one of their moments against Accies does worry me though.

What makes you think Saturday will be different? This type of result has been the norm over the last 12 months.

still three signings short of 11th place.

I’m hoping it will be different. Horsefield, Andreas, Woods and Nelson will all start in my opinion. I’m hoping they all show the fight and desire required to compete. Players to drop out from today’s starting eleven would for me be Innis, Dales, Miller and McGowan. I’d go with Deing

Kerr, Kusunga, ODea, Ralph

Horsefield, Andreas, Woods, Deacon

Curran, Nelson

Thats assuming we don’t sign anyone else, but I’m expecting another central midfielder and an attacking midfielder to come in at least, if we get that then ODea might not start as Andreas can go centre half and Deacon could drop out for the attacking midfielder.

Whatever, I’m expecting an improvement on tonight’s abomination.

Job done.

In my opinion the main problem lies with John Nelms and the lack of board of directors meetings held throughout the year. I understand that there are now only at the most two Dundee Football Club Limited Board of directors meetings held per year with one coming up shortly with the next set of annual accounts due to be published at the end of next month or early March. 

In the past managers had to attend monthly board of directors meetings to explain how things were going on the pitch but now this does not appear to happen. 

Tim Keyes appears to have handed all power over to John Nelms who in my opinion is out of touch with the realities of Premier League Football in Scotland.

As an alleged professional footballer they should be able to pass the ball back on a flat AstroTurf surface, first team players under PH , NM are current being exposed for what they are. I think we will see a difference performance this weekend because almost  half of that team tonight will not start. 

I'm trying to convince myself friend that your final comments above give me hope ... But after tonight, I am having a hard job convincing myself :tears:

Was it heck, it was down to the manager and his team selection and players who didn't give enough on the pitch.

Tim Keyes and Nelms have backed their man by allowing him to dip into the transfer market and bring in fresh faces.

Gedee hopefully my comments in my post #25 will provide some logic to my reasoning, outside of that I am looking for Devine intervention. 😇🙏

Team selection did not seem geared to winning this game. Job done. Gave O'Dea a game, Inniss seems to be unlikely to play again apart for injuries. Need to get back to a sense of purpose and keeping things simple.

Ach, by Saturday night we will have forgotten all about this result and bask in the glorious win over Hamilton which will move us into 10th spot....

But I also believe in pink clouds, unicorns and little pixes which live under the bushes in my back garden!

DDYB!! Tenth here we come!

Hi TDB,

 If there had monthly board of directors meetings NM would have been sacked a lot sooner than he was plus the directors would have questioned NM signing a load of dross. 

In my opinion Tim Keyes who is supposed to be the Chairman of Dundee Football Club Limited must take a more ‘hands on role’ and try to get things sorted behind the scenes at Dens even if it means playing players who Jim McIntyre does not fancy. 

If we carry on like this we will be relegated at the end of this season. 

John Nelms should be put in charge of the new stadium development and Keyes should bring in a Chief Executive who has experience of running a professional football club.

Still three short of 11th place come the end of the season! IMO St Mirren will get 10th.

Two of our three league wins have come against Hamilton. Two of our three clean sheets have come against Hamilton. It would be quite fitting if we finally found ourselves in 10th place after beating Accies.

To be fair to Islay our problems lie a lot further back than JM's team selection. Whilst the lack of board meetings didn't directly affect tonight's result there rarity and other non communications has led us down today's path. Hiring manager and backing them to the hilt, for me, is part of the problem.

I'd like to know who was responsible for the terms of Kerr Waddell's loan deal with Morton, which according to the press, we cannot recall the player "due to the terms of the agreement". What complete clown signs off a deal like that? We could fair do with Kerr's aggression and passion right now, and he certainly could have helped with a certain selection issue tonight!

Away results like this have been the norm after Hartley's first six months-coincides with Thomson dropping out of the picture.

I stopped going at that point due to the piss poor midfield-some of whom still play.

Every game is pretty predictable-there is the odd good result like last week but generally the effort and tackling iand creativity in midfield is shocking.

Deacon was best Dundee player first half according to radio.

 

Then why was he hooked at half time (again) for a youngster when we were 2-0 down? Injured again?
