  • We Are Disappointed We Never Got the Win - McIntyre

    Dundee missed out on all three-points and moving level on points with second-bottom St Mirren after our goalless draw with livingston yesterday but Jim McIntyre insisted that this point could prove to be vital come may.

    The Dark Blues had just been defeated three times on the road in a matter of a week against three of the top sides in the Premiership but were hoping to put that behind them with high-flying Livingston visiting Dens Park.

    Despite having the bulk of possession and chances, Dundee were unable to show that killer touch up top and would have to settle for a point.

    “It was a really tough game and you know you will be tested with Livingston,” said McIntyre.

    “They are having a fantastic season and we had to stand up to a lot of set-plays but we did that.

    “We caused them problems but we didn’t have that killer bit at the end of it.

    “We showed a lot of endeavour and guts after the last three games we have had. The plus points are we kept a clean sheet and we have picked up another point.

    “Who knows how vital that could become the end of the season. We are disappointed we never got the win, but I can’t be disappointed with what the players gave me in terms of work ethic.

    “We stood up to a lot of their set-plays, which is a big part of their game, so we’ve come on a lot since playing them when I first came in.”

    Even though the Dee are still bottom, yesterdays draw was our fourth match at Dens without defeat and our first clean sheet in four outings.

      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.
