    Booing.

    https://www.thecourier.co.uk/fp/sport/football/dundee-fc/1032428/dundee-boos-helped-queen-of-the-south-win-says-stephen-dobbie/ Been banging that drum for God knows how long. Fans pay their money and feel it's their right or entitlement to boo, it's so, so counterproductive though.

    We Want Jim Duffy Back!

    We've got a manager who I think has been appointed as a long (ish) term project. I don't fancy our man at the helms chances of appointing the correct man if our current manager quits or is relieved of his duties. I don't think anyone else currently at Dens has it within their remit to have any worthwhile input in any potential requirement process.

    No, I'm talking hypothetically. Don't you want a debate?.

    No disrespect intended but I don't believe there's anyone employed at Dens with the clout or remit to appoint the correct manager for the job in hand.

    There's sh*t loads out there, whether we can find them, never mind recruit them, is another matter.

    If we're to replace JMcP then it should be with someone who's currently the best man for the job that we can realistically get not someone who we're fond of who's done relatively well in spells and been a disaster in others. Jim Duffy's not the answer, nor is Rab Douglas, Barry Smith, Jocky Scott etc, etc.

    Jim Duffy's had his time here, he was exceptional as a player and he had a few highlights as a manager too. I think we should let him keep his legendary status and not allow that to be sullied in the hope he can provide a highly unlikely quick fix.

    Some sides train on it every day though.

    Ridiculous penalties and red cards were more his forte.

    McPake Poll

    Barry Smith is a very quiet individual, I don't think he's the motivational type to be honest. Rab's a different kettle of fish maybe but I personally don't think they would markedly improve our fortunes at this moment in time.

    Jimmy Nicholl

    Not true Janny mate, I saw Jimmy Nichol out of the dugout giving McPake advice yesterday, that had a fairly lengthy discussion at one point in fact.

    Obvious Disconnect Between Manager and Players

    If I was saying 'get it up you' to the manager I wouldn't point my finger at him. When a player loses a relative they point to the sky meaning 'thats for you' or 'i'm thinking of you'. I get that people want to follow a certain narrative though.

    Anybody Else

    He's old school in a day when the players have the upper hand. He'll probably get us up the park quicker and we'll be more industrial the problems will start when we invetably lose a couple of matches and McGhee tries an old school heavy handed approach. I think the players can make him look like a bigger mug than we've seen here in the past if he rubs them up the wrong way. The fans are calling for the ball to be played forward quicker and for the players to be given a boot in the a**e so we'll see how that works out if McGhee is indeed appointed.

    Anybody Else

    Think we might get the ball from back to front quicker under him anyway. Route1DSC.

    And While We Are In a Moaning Mood....

    Been there mate, I think we all go through it at some point, if you're anything like me it'll pass and you'll get back to do what you most enjoy. It's been a tough few years but us Dee's are made of strong stuff and it'll take more than a few dodgy results to put us off long term.

    McPake Poll

    Barry and big Rab did an absolutely phenomenal job but the facts were that the club were on the brink of collapse and the players knew that. The unjust 25 point penalty gave them all the motivation that they needed to prove everyone wrong and save the club. Without that I don't think Smith & Rab would cope much better than the guys we've seen in the dugout recently.

    And While We Are In a Moaning Mood....

    I thought the seats were a bit cold yesterday, surely someone from the club could've warmed them up beforehand, it's not as if the cold temperatures hadn't been predicted.

    Obvious Disconnect Between Manager and Players

    McGowan gave the DAB's a GIRUY, totally different gesture and body language.

    Obvious Disconnect Between Manager and Players

    Don't believe that for one minute. There's plenty effort from the players. Johnson ran straight towards the manager after he scored, pointing straight at him as if to say 'thats for you'. The system needs work but a change of system won't mend shattered confidence.

    McPake Poll

    I'm not convinced the Johnson would fair much better than Hemmings, I honestly think that we'd be complaining about Hemmings being on the bench. It's fair to say that we have two good goalscorers who currently can't both play, Hemmings will probably be on the bigger wage, has previously scored goals regularly at a good level and is/was a fan's favourite. I believe JMcP is probably under pressure to play him and he doesn't have the system or players to pick both. The guys who I'd guess are on the biggest money, Forster, Dorrans & Hemmings, are probably the one who are causing JMcP the biggest issues because they'll play more often than not due to our financial outlay on them but are the ones who aren't delivering for various reasons. Of the three I'd say Dorrans is the one who can take the game by the scruff of the neck and dictate the pace and direction of our play but he's just not delivering regularly enough. When we're looking for some inspiration he's the one player who can do what others can't but he's not bringing that on a match day when we're in dire need of it. I think we need him to show for the ball more often and encourage others into the game.
