I can understand the philosophy behind the style of football McCann is trying to play.
Scottish football has the stigma attached to it that it's direct and at times the old "punt it up the park". World football has evolved over the years whereas Scottish football hasn't which is evident in the grass roots systems that aren't working.
I can understand that McCann is trying to play a style that encourages build up play from the back, possession football unfortunately for him Dundee aren't the team to be his guinea pig for this style. We struggled at the end of last season and we clearly don't have a core team of players that we can actually call our starting line up.
I think McCann needs to give up on his philosophy for now and actually look at getting a regular 11 names that are a guaranteed to be on the team sheet each week. Once he has that in place I think that's the time to look at trying new tactics. Don't try to build a squad and tactical philosophy at the same time we need some team cohesion first!!
