  • McIntyre Blasts His Dundee Flops Following Defeat To Saints

    Jim McIntyre laid into his Dundee team after they were soundly beaten by St johnstone at dens park in the last game of 2018.

    The Dark Blues served up a lacklustre performance which ensured the St Johnstone headed back to Perth with possibly their easiest three-points of the season.

    With the Dee at the bottom of the table and fighting for survival, the way the home team rolled over and gave into a Saints side right before the opening of the January transfer window has possible added a few more names to the exit list that Jim McIntyre has drawn up.

    “We had four players who made contact with the St Johnstone boys, which is not enough,” said McIntyre.

    “If you are seeing players not committed, not seeing that fighting spirit, and seeing people disappear – because clearly that is what happened – then it’s very frustrating.

    “Everyone knows we have to get players in and this underlines that fact again.

    “The team clearly needs strengthened in January. It’s as clear as day that’s what has to happen.

    “We need to bring a freshness to things and the board know that. They’re not daft.

    “We need to get the right types now and I’m very confident I’ll get the backing we need.”

      In a statement released by the club this afternoon, it read: 
      McIntyre leaves Dundee with just a 12.9% win record, the worst in our history. 

      Despite major player movement in the January transfer window, he was unable to turn around the fortunes of the club which resulted in our relegation to the Championship and he has now paid the price for failing to do so.

      The ex Ross County manager was never a popular choice to take over the reigns from Neil McCann but those with the final say within Den Park told us that the stats showed he was the right man for the job. However, those stats would ultimately prove to be corrupt.

      With many fans declaring an unwillingness to purchase a season ticket if he remained in charge and constant displeasure that he had not yet been relieved of his duties before his record ten-match defeat streak, this should be seen now as some what of a clean slate on the on-field side as the club prepare to adjust to life in the Championship.

      Our owners will now start the search for the 37th manager of Dundee who will no doubt be tasked with bouncing straight back up to the top-flight.

      As the game entered its final stages yesterday, chants of  "10 in a row, he's got to go" rang round the home support as the fans voiced their verdict on our worse ever manager who has now guided us to ten defeats on the trot to ensure our exit from the Premiership.

      Despite the fans unanimously letting the manager and owners know they have no faith in the current regime in the dugout, McIntyre said he is “determined” to lead the club out of the Championship next term.

      Goals either side of half time sealed the victory for St Johnstone but Dundee did have their chances to score, with Ethan Robson coming the closes when he fired over from only a few yards out.

      There is still six game left to play to save our Premiership status but with each passing week and performance, it’s all starting to look very bleak. McIntyre still believes though that he can lead his team to safety.
