Poor defending and lacking any end product upfront was the catalyst to a fourth straight defeat in a row for the Dark Blues, with three happening in the space of a week.

“I don’t like being down at the bottom of the table. I’m trying to change things here so that we’re not looking down in that direction,” said McCann.

“All the other teams who’ve started to come above us now have been through a difficult period and we’re experiencing one now.

“The only way to get out of it is to get the boys to be brave and still believe in what we’re doing.

“This is when you need to use a lot of your man-management skills to gather the boys and make sure they become stronger characters.

“Our game has been really attractive to watch without getting results but we need to do the ugly side of things as well.

“I’m not going to roll over. We’ll get back to work to try and become harder to beat.

“We’ve got a young group and this is when they become men, when it’s difficult at times.

“Without stating the obvious we need to work on our defensive side of things. There’s a real sense of disappointment because the goals we lost were very poor.

“Again, we were in control of the match and then we get done by a sucker-punch at the first one just before half-time.

“It’s a bit indicative of our season that we’re losing such soft goals.”

Paul McGowan also spoke of his shock that the Dee were at the bottom of the pile.

“It’s hard to say that we’re bottom of the league,” said McGowan.

“I can’t believe how it’s happened because of the way we’ve been playing.

“But you’re not going to get anywhere if you’re not scoring and you’re conceding poor goals.

“We’re a young squad and it’s a learning curve but we need to learn quickly.

“Before you know it, you’re staring down the barrel.”

Yeah, the one that makes you wish you had never gone to it..... and why, so what's your Halloween Horror Game?

My first Halloween Horror game was Dundee v Celtic in January 1971 when I was just a mere 5 years old. Standing in the Main stand underneath with my Auld Man, Uncle and Grand Dad watching Jimmy Johnstone (Didn't know who he was at the time) and Celtic run riot.

Needless to say I am a glutton for punishment, as here I am many years later.............. still being haunted to hell!

With just under 200 appearance to his name and five goals, Gary Irvine was an integral part of Dundee during his five and a half years service.

Scott Allan will most likely be going back to his parent club as Celtic will want to oversea his recovery.

Whether that means we will see him in a Dark Blue jersey again will remain to be seen. McCann stated in the news that “Because he’s a loan player we, quite rightly, have to be guided by Celtic and their medical staff. It’s early days and we’re just waiting.”

Dundee lose to Celtic in the Betfred Cup 4 - 0.

Celtic scored after Beaton judge Sinclair to have been fouled inside the box by Hendry. Sinclair converted from the spot.

Forrest made it two in the 42nd minute when he managed to get the ball past Bain from just inside the box.

McGregor made it third in the 88th minute after Beaton waved play on and El Bak gives the ball away.

Forrest gets his second in the 90th+1 when he shoots from inside the box under Bain who had no chance to save.

Dundee 0 - 4 Celtic.

Cobra's Top Two Topic/HK's post lead me here. "Is the structure of the Premiership the best we can come up with?"

Writing off the Top 4-5-6 places for half the Premiership Division before we've started the season, cannae be right.

Probably a differnt argument, but I would be delighted to see Twa Ugly Sisters spread their poison somewhere else.

OK part of this is to see the Premiership more "open" But wha wid want them?  The last few days have shown again

neither of them in good light. They must have some decent fans. But who would want to be associated with them?

Know this has been well discussed before, but with the New Season only days away, as well as the excitement this

brings to fans of every club, there is also the thinking... "Is this anither stressful season focusing on bottom clubs?"
