  • I Hope This Is A Turning Point - McCann

    Neil Mccann Guided Dundee To Their First Win In The Premiership After Six Straight Defeats And He Hopes This Is Now A “Turning Point” For The Dark Blues.

    After a disastrous start to the season, Dundee more than earned their first points of the campaign with an away win against Hamilton and will now be hoping to take this momentum onto their next few fixtures as they eye moving up the table.

    "I hope this is a turning point and I believe we can carry on from here," said McCann.

    "We have a tough game next weekend against Kilmarnock but I told them to enjoy the weekend because it has been a long time coming.

    "It is a relief to get the three points and I am really pleased for the guys. I have been saying for a number of weeks that I had belief in them to get a result.

    "I thought we were well worth the three points. We dominated the first half and we continued to do things well.

    "The coming weeks will tell us how high the confidence will soar. It was a happy dressing room.”

    "There has been questions asked if the dressing room was together in these dark times but today showed the togetherness and it showed I have a bunch of boys who love being in each other's company."

      With the threat of losing his job if Hamilton came out on top almost certain, McCann stuck to his guns and came out the victor by refusing to change his philosophy on how he wants to see his team play, something that has earned him praise from the Irish defender.

      “It’s a big relieve – this result has obviously been a long time coming for us,” beamed Boyle.
      “But I thought we were good value for it after dominating the game. We rode our luck a bit late on but that is a bit of luck we probably deserve after the way things have gone recently.
      “The manager has been brilliant. We’ve all taken a bit of flak but he’s been positive and kept on encouraging us to play.
      “He’s been very brave. It would have been easy to revert to a safer style and go long but he has stuck to his guns and we reaped the benefits of it on Saturday.
      “Have I seen any signs of him being under stress? No, not really. At training, everyone has been positive around the place. You wouldn’t guess from walking around the place that we had lost seven games on the spin from looking at folk.
      “Saturday was a much better feeling coming off the pitch than we’ve had in past weeks. We just need to kick this on now.”

      Yes agree, but Nelms has proved he is miles out his depth, a new manager comes in tomorrow he would want to clear the decks again...vicious circle with poor managers overseen by a hopeless chief executive drawing a huge salary. 
      Sorry Mr S, it just so happens that it was your post which needed to be split from. Nothing personal, but seems adapt lol

      Dundee finally grabbed their first win of the season with a 2-0 win away to Hamilton.
      Andy Boyle headed home the opener in the first half then Kharl Madianga scored in injury time for our first win after seven games.
