"I’m sorry at the sorry way my team picked up three welcome points yesterday." Interesting view on Dundee v Hearts from Mickey Lawson - someone who knows a thing or two about football"

 

 

Hearts fans should be embarrassed by that pathetic performance.

I just don't see it I'm afraid. Yes we're considerably better than we were CONSIDERABLY BETTER. But then so are St Mirren. Then factor in that LIvi, St. Johnstone and Hamilton are not sides we traditionally do particularly well against and I just don't think we'll have enough We've been waiting for it to click for the last two seasons, is it just going to happen now? Hope springs eternal but reality bites.

Sorry if I come across as completely negative but I've just been there so many times with Dundee and it's always the other club that pulls off the big result at our expense and never us at theirs. Even in the last promotion season Hamilton managed the eight goal margin they needed (OK it was clear cheating) and we only got away with it by the thickness of Kyle Letheren's gloves.

I don't care about Levein, we all know what kind of a manager he is and that his football teams tend to be thugs but his sides consistently do well against us, last visit to Tynecastle aside. That's because for whatever reason our teams never seem to have the guts for a fight.

Hi PB

Cant agree on this occasion.Tomorrow we may be bottom but I know we are better equipped to survive this.Over the next 9 games.

 

Cant agree

If you look at McIntyre's first season at County he had similar results to what he's had here, and then around this stage of the season not long before the split (and after they'd played the big clubs) County started racking up wins in the six-pointers to pull clear of trouble.

Will the same thing happen with Dundee? We're about to find out.

Think we need Nelson back and at least two grafters in midfield. Hadenius played against Killie. Gowser? Also a settled back two. When Wright is off form we don't seem to create anything.

I don't know how much we can rely on Nelson. Someone will no doubt have full details, but I think he's only played about 65 mins 3 times and 15 mins at Hamilton. More than a bit of a worry.

He's played 259 minutes in the league out of a total 720 minutes (so he's been on the park 35% of the time).

I'd be tempted to wrap him up in cotton wool until we go to Paisley. We don't need him picking up a knock during a defeat to Celtic.

There is such a reliance on Nelson as the man exclusively to help us turn the corner (Hope this is justified & no jist seen as oor last & only hope)

I hope we are no adding to the pressure he must already be feeling. He does seem to like to get in there amongst it, & that in itself is a joy to see.

Cobra I go along with your line I highlighted. Also go along with the other poster above, who suggested surely Miller/Nelson would be a dynamic

force & combination that could surely find these winning goals & points ...

In fact withoot any mair "flaffing aboot" DFC has the present players there

at their disposal (imo) to score goals. And tell oor defenders to get a grip.

Now's time to start winning the games Get these survival points on board.

Mon the Dee...You Can Do It:chaplin:

I’m worrying that the pressure on the boy is building . Too much talk of if he doesn’t play we don’t score . If we could get a grip at the back and keep this clean sheet thing I’ve heard of , we would take the pressure off the forwards. It gets you points as the late lamented rivers used to point out

Just been speaking to a Hearts fan who accuses us of exactly what they were doing, fouling Ikpeazu and getting away with it. What? they went down with a puff of wind and got frees all over the shop.

It will be totally different.

It's frustrating but we're in the position where we've been playing really good teams and desperate for something. I think the situation is recoverable but if you aren't getting 8 or 9 points from a round of fixtures, it's going to be pretty tough going. We have massively improved and actually are capable of playing well but it's a very tough ask to reverse that.

The only game of the bottom six which I get the feeling we won't do anything in is St Johnstone (and even then, we've completely changed since last time) - just think they've had our number this season. The other five games are very winnable and then we've got St Mirren before that as well. It's going to be pretty high pressure.

Our defending really is comic cuts. Saturday's goal was pathetic, in a long list of joke goals this season. Experienced defenders making mistakes a schoolboy would be ashamed of.

Really need to get them organised, plenty time spent on the training pitch by now surely.The lack of consistent personnel remains a big part of the problem. Get it fixed jm

I don't think it's anything to do with changing personnel. 4 of the back 5 have been the same for several weeks with only Kusunga or O'Dea swoping. Woods also always plays as a defender midfielder, well meant to be. Imo.

I like O'Sullivan, he rarely loses the ball and has something about him. Very solid. Worth a start.

Don't think it'll happen. This is a manager who thinks it's a good idea to take OFF a striker at a corner kick. This is a manager who signed Martin Woods, picks him every week and lets him take 95% of our free kicks and corners. This is a manager who kept Kenny Miller on the bench when both Nelson and C Curran were injured.

Can't see his love for Woods. Since he's been here he's been the free kick specialist, for some obscure reason. We now have Robson, Wright, O'Sullivan and Dales, who all do the same job as J Curran. Why? We have a midfield of Woods and Gowser. Neither of them can see a pass and neither has any pace. Not sure we're any further forward than before he bought a new team.

Martin woods was our best midfielder on Saturday,doing the the job of 2 players as Robson was useless. Agree with the point about Miller though.
