    The Curious Case of Kane Hemmings

    I go along with your opening comment above John and believe it is only a matter of time. before he hits the scoring trail. Add to his qualities, the names of Nelson & Johnson and in these three players we have lads that some Premiership Teams would be happy see in their line-up. Those DFC fans/supporters who can see live games on a regular basis will be well aware of the areas that need strengthened much better than me, so no need for me to try to name names. But as I see it, if we can add/adjust things to make the midfield more creative, whereby they can act as a real feed to our goal-scoring front men, & make a defence (from Keeper out) more confident & secure, we will soon be a team to be reckoned with. I am not talking of mass changes ... I think even as we stand, we are about there. And confidence breeds confidence ... Both at the front & at the back. And then through the whole team. The victory of yesterday may be the start.
  2. Quite right Blue' ... First and foremost it is DFC that heads the way in our thoughts...(And the improvement in wins & results, always starts there) But it adds a wee bit sugar & warms the heart when they are reminded, that they are maybe not quite as good as they believe. And it's still a very long season ahead
  3. It's that aggressive side of yours John, that Chomp and I find so appealing
  4. Gonna say Hamilton ... There's others possibly more deserving. His penalty save was important in this particular game. But I'm hoping also, this might lead-on to a confidence boost & all-round personal improvement.
  5. Huggs' meh freend ... I am sure your wee analysis is right on the mark. But eh prefer to see it as a genltle kick in the baws to the Unbeatables
  6. A stand oot comment there fae Ian McCall ... As said above, whether ye're a fan o' McCall (I am) that's the best "pit-doon" I've read/heard in a lang time
  7. Let's hope tho' he's well tested .... And fails As oor Gang of Goal-Scores come thundering doon on him & DFC rack up the goals ... (weel we can still dream)
  8. Deeteck when you get to a certain age...eh wi born in 1942 you've got tae dae whit's best for yirsel & those family & friends that are close around you. So if you feel for whatever reason, forum's no for you, that is your choice. But personally, taking into account I no longer get to games, because of isues around health, distance, time & travel etc, I find this particular forum a godsend. Why no gie yirsel a wee break, then Rolll alang wi' the bad and the good.
  9. Weel DeeTeck ... Although eh'm mair fae one o' the "Younger Group" eh like to show respect, tae you "Auld Ains" As lang as ye dinnae start haverin' aboot yir...Organic tomatoes, re-cycled & reinforced long-johns & thon voices.
  10. ... Jings J-K, and here wis me gettn'' awe excited tae.
  11. Weel Billy ... That comment above is straight to the point. Although I accept it is certainly not the most "lifting" and positve post I have read in the past few days, is he not still entitled to his point of view? Maybe he'll respond or maybe he'll not...But I kinda feel he has did enough in his past years of DFC support, to be allowed to express an opinion.

    Big Team

    I agree with all of that GSD ... And on the more general point which you yourself raised above. The impression I get on present day football, is there has maybe been too much of a power-shift from the managing staff to players. I've little time for the "bullying approach" in any aspect of social or professional life, but there is a need for respect & discipline ... & I am not sure this is foemost in the mind of some of today's football players ... That said, I'm glad we have move away in most areas, from the ruling with an iron rod. ... A wee bit more honesty & respect would go along way mind.

    Weel, that's him telt !!
  14. I'm not necessarily disagreeing with your point above friend.But is there not some room for manoeuvre here? We're tallking about Divisions/Clubs/Players, of totally different clas here. Dundee vs Alloa? Why not try this?
  15. I think surrey' your post is basically is posing again, the question of what my topic is all about ... & that's not a criticism (Happy to admit doing this could be total disaster...But on the other hand we've not covered ourselves in glory to ths point) Is there not a way, to put the DFC's three main scored on the park right from the off? This is a genuine question for those who know a lot more about modern systems & tactics than me (That's possibly everyone here) So tomorrow why not try it? DFC Supporting Fans would be right behind each of them from the whistle ... And they just might put fear into opposition.

    Bye Bye

    Maybe jist needs a wee bit mair time Valentke ... Eh can think o' possibly twa guys on here (3 if you include me) that the idea o' a floggin (public or private) would certainly be appealing. Depending on the day & mood I am in (& this will be governed by the DFC result on the day) I'd like to be a passive or active participant)

    Bye Bye

    Chomp . eh thought eh'd gie ye a Gold Star...No jist for your comment above. But to confirm "OOR SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP" ... You look efter yirsel noo xx,

    Bye Bye

    I know some days, I certainly feel unloved & abandoned ... So fae a personal perspective lads & lasses keep them posts & responses coming. And dinnae you lot be feeling embarrassed aboot it ... (Eh ken eh certainly dinnae)
  19. I did see that Headline, but withoot reading it, I thought it was a bit of a Non-Story "No big surprises there" As you say/suggest yoursel Double Blue, all fans know what they are paying & probably think it's too much.
  20. Thanks for your response ... And it is difficult to disagree with your comments/assessment J-K. However, although the practicalities of setting up a team with the 3 scoring forwards up-front, would give any manager a Huge Headache (& may well be an impossibility) maybe whilst emphasising to them that their duty today is to rack-up the goals today, he should also take aside, the midfield ... And doubly emphasise their respnsibility & their crucial role in supplying theit Target men ... As you so clearly state above freend.
  21. It is hard to accept that the Dundee Players approached the game with "It's only a formality mindset" ... But on the other hand, it's possible.

    Watching Scotland Is Like Watching....

    No need for you to come back OCD. But thanks for doing so (It is maybe a mistake ... But it is also a fine compliment)
  23. Have just noticed, no more than a few moments ago, a Topic with "Our Forwards" ... (Apologies, if this is similar)
  24. Difficult Times calls for Difficult Decisions .... Most folk on here will know I can't get to live games now for a range of reasons. Add to that, although I've been going to watch live fitba games, of all kinds, for quite a long time, and ken the difference beteween a good player & a bad player ... And a good game & a bad game, I have never really got into New Systems/Plans/Tactics. (As in life, I believe sometimes in an effort to improve things, we can end up over-complicate things. And I believe this might be the case (at times) in the World of Football) Neil McCann was a fine fella, intelligent & articulate, & also proven & an experienced quality player. As a manager he was totally focused on what was required, to make a successful team & him a successful manager ... And then it all went wrong. At least in part (imo) because he was asking players to do (& understand) something which they were in the main. incapable of doing. Every player should be ambitious & open to learning & further development, but I am also a believer, in allowing a player to do what he is comfortable & best at .. using his natural skills & those skills which he has learned & further developed Which bring us to the Three Names on the Topic Headline. It's been proven in the past, putting on front-line of top scoring forwards, goals will NOT automaticall follow (Even i know that) NORMALLY I WOULD AGREE, WE NEED CREATIVE GOAL MAKERS, AS WELL AS GOAL SCORERS TO MAKE THIS WORK AT ALL. But as a walk into the unknown, what might happen, if JPR put on 3 players mentioned above upfront, with simple instructions to all three players "I want each of you to focus on one thing only: Putting that ball in the net" I understand there is an obvious difficulty, of then finding a balanced team that could also be strong in defence, whilst at same time supply the feed for front 3. But for the sake of dicussion & to give those posters who have a real insight into the game (no me) if this was put to you, what could you, would you, come up with? If you feel like responding. I would prefer to hear views of how this might work, rather than dismissing it , as anither load of rambling nonsense fae that "Daft Auld Man" Yes, it could prove a real disaster...But on the other hand, were I the opposition team facing 3 front men of that quality, who've proved they can score goals, I would feel intimidated. The biggest, obvious problem as I see it, is finding a player(s) who can supply the front men with the right kind of ammunition. If Stewart was available, he could be the "missing link"

    Bye Bye

    I refuse to accept that diagnosis until I've had a full, frank, open discussion with ... "My Voices" "No nurse, it's not the time to take my medication & can you not see I am chairing a meeting here?"
