    Deetv: St.M Highlights & Interviews

    @WoodStein did you try changing the streaming on the HD icon on the player? It's normally set at the lowest when I go on it and have to change it to full HD
  2. The former Republic of Ireland centre-back had called time on his professional football career a few weeks back and announced he would be taking on the role as coach of Motherwell’s under-18s. Yesterday’s defeat at Dens Park would be his last match but unfortunately it would not end on a high for O’Dea. The defender lasted just 19 minutes before he was shown a straight red card for hauling down Brad Lyons after the Saints player took advantage of some poor control from O’Dea. Ever the professional, O’Dea was quick to take the limelight away from himself, instead focusing on the young arrivals who made the Dundee squad but not before light-heartedly joking about his final contribution on a football field. In total, Darren O’Dea made 102 appearances for the club since his arrival in January 2016, finding the net a total of five times. Everyone from The Dark Blue Forums would like to thank O’Dea for his contribution over the years for the club and would also like to wish him all the best in his future coaching role with Motherwell.

    McPake Declares Interest In Dundee Job

    With Dundee now beginning the process of preparing for life in the Championship, McPake knows the club have to get it right and hit the ground running if they want to make a quick return to the top-flight. Regardless who takes over at the helm, it will be a massive summer for the club on and off the field.
  4. The striker sits at 2/1 to take over with Derek Adams 4/1, James McPake 6/1 and Jim Goodwin 6/1 making the top four on their website. It’s worth nothing that there have been a few rumours the past week that Miller was to take over at Dens when McIntyre was inevitably given his marching orders. Miller has also been linked with a move to Partick Thistle. Other notable names are Gordon Strachan at 10/1 with Stuart McCall, John Robertson and old Dens Park favourite Morten Wieghorst who all sit at 16/1.

    Dundee Wield Axe On Management Team

    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.
  6. Relegation was confirmed after last weeks defeat at home to Hamilton which meant that todays match was the first of two meaningless ties before the end of the 2018/19 campaign. Kenny Miller netted the only goal of the game after being set up by fellow striker Andrew Nelson. His goal put Miller into the clubs history books as our oldest ever goalscorer at 39 years and 121 days, replacing Gordon Smith who had previously held the record after he scored for the Dark Blues in a 2-0 win away to Falkirk in the penultimate match of 1962/63. Smith was 38 at the time but was just of a few days away from his 39th birthday. After the match, McIntyre praised Millers goal that stopped his record breaking run of league defeats as Dundee manager which matched our worst ever run set back in 1898/99:
  7. Fuck me, I totally forgot we still had a few games to go until this jobbyfest of a season ends
  8. I know it's League 2 but I quite like the look of forward Blair Henderson from Edinburgh City. 6,4 and banged them in this season. Has a good goalscoring record in the lower leagues so could be worth a punt.

    10 In a Row, He Surely Has To Go?

    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.
