    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.

    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.

  4. Goals either side of half time sealed the victory for St Johnstone but Dundee did have their chances to score, with Ethan Robson coming the closes when he fired over from only a few yards out. There is still six game left to play to save our Premiership status but with each passing week and performance, it’s all starting to look very bleak. McIntyre still believes though that he can lead his team to safety.
  5. It looked like the same old hard luck stories of past would be n the cards again when Livingston went ahead just minutes after being reduced to 10-men following a reckless challenge by Shaun Byrne. Dundee did push forward but would go int the break still behind after failing to put a shot on target. That however all changed in the second half. Andrew Nelson put the teams back on level terms with a fantastic looping header from a Scott Wright cross. Following an awful challenge on substitute Jesse Curran on the edge of the Livi box, Wright would step up with less than ten minutes to play and tucked away a delicious free-kick that even ‘Glorious’ Gary Harkins would have been proud of. This was Dundee’s second victory in five matches and this sees them move above Hamilton in 10th on goal difference.
  6. Dundee took the lead early on when Genseric Kusunga rallied up the park to slot home his first goal of the season but the Dark Blues were dealt a cruel blow when with minutes to go until the end of the first half, Hearts equalised through a free-kick which unfortunately deflected off of Jesse Currans head, looping into the back of the net. Despite this setback, Dundee would claw their way back into the lead when Craig Curran swopped on a defensive mistake to set up Andrew Nelson who hammered home the what would prove to be the winner. Hearts came at Dundee but the away team held out despite one or two near misses to claim a valuable win to start 2019 with a bang. It was a deserved victory for the Dee. In sharp contrast to the last time both sides met at Dens Park, Hearts took apart a shambolic Dundee side that night but, on this occasion, it was the boys in their white away tops who bullied their counterparts. McIntyre was obviously delighted with the win, and also the way his team dealt with the freak Hearts equaliser.
  7. The Dark Blues served up a lacklustre performance which ensured the St Johnstone headed back to Perth with possibly their easiest three-points of the season. With the Dee at the bottom of the table and fighting for survival, the way the home team rolled over and gave into a Saints side right before the opening of the January transfer window has possible added a few more names to the exit list that Jim McIntyre has drawn up. “We had four players who made contact with the St Johnstone boys, which is not enough,” said McIntyre. “If you are seeing players not committed, not seeing that fighting spirit, and seeing people disappear – because clearly that is what happened – then it’s very frustrating. “Everyone knows we have to get players in and this underlines that fact again. “The team clearly needs strengthened in January. It’s as clear as day that’s what has to happen. “We need to bring a freshness to things and the board know that. They’re not daft. “We need to get the right types now and I’m very confident I’ll get the backing we need.”
  8. McIntyre also confirmed recently that Sofien Moussa, Elton Ngwatala and Kharl Madianga weren’t in his plans and they were all free to find other teams to take the total of players heading for the exit door to six. McIntyre said: “We’ve had a couple of chats with some other players. Lewis Spence is another one that’s been told, if he can find a club, we will let him move on. “Jean Mendy is another one that we feel won’t get as much game time as he would like. Marcus Haber will also leave as well.” “Different jobs have different criteria. I took the Queen of the South job and all I added was two players and never moved anybody on because the group was a good group and they were doing well. “So sometimes you don’t need to change things, but quite clearly here we do, and we have got to freshen it up to give ourselves the best chance of staying in this division.”
  9. The Dark Blues had just been defeated three times on the road in a matter of a week against three of the top sides in the Premiership but were hoping to put that behind them with high-flying Livingston visiting Dens Park. Despite having the bulk of possession and chances, Dundee were unable to show that killer touch up top and would have to settle for a point. “It was a really tough game and you know you will be tested with Livingston,” said McIntyre. “They are having a fantastic season and we had to stand up to a lot of set-plays but we did that. “We caused them problems but we didn’t have that killer bit at the end of it. “We showed a lot of endeavour and guts after the last three games we have had. The plus points are we kept a clean sheet and we have picked up another point. “Who knows how vital that could become the end of the season. We are disappointed we never got the win, but I can’t be disappointed with what the players gave me in terms of work ethic. “We stood up to a lot of their set-plays, which is a big part of their game, so we’ve come on a lot since playing them when I first came in.” Even though the Dee are still bottom, yesterdays draw was our fourth match at Dens without defeat and our first clean sheet in four outings.
  10. Kenny Miller came back to haunt his old club when he opened the scoring for his sixth goal in four games but Nathan Ralph was sent off on the 19th minute with our opponents slotting home the resulting free-kick. Rangers then had a goal ruled offside but from then on in, Dundee defended expertly to limit the Glasgow club to just one attempt on target in the second half. The result meant that Dundee moved off the bottom of the Premiership on goal difference for the first time since Motherwell defeated the Dark Blues on the 1st September at Dens Park. “I was delighted considering we were down to 10 men for so long,” beamed Jim McIntyre. “It is a difficult match when you go down to 10 men against one of the best sides in the country. But I thought the boys showed great resolve and good organisation. Having said that, I didn’t think Rangers cut us open that much. Jack (Hamilton) has made one or two saves. “We knew we would have to give up the wider areas and defend a lot of crosses but we were nice and narrow and the distances between our two fours were very good. So, the players deserve all the credit because it is not easy to handle that.” “It was an opportunity to get off the bottom of the league today. “We have had two or three of them and we haven’t managed to take them. So, I am really pleased that we have managed to do that but I will reiterate there is still so much hard work ahead. “There are a lot of tough games in December so it is just a case of one at a time. “The boys are in a happy place at the moment. There is a real spirit of togetherness there that you see on the training ground every day.”
  11. Dundee’s draw against St Mirren ended a run of five defeats in a row and also seen McIntyre eventually getting off the mark with his first point and also goal as Dundee manager. After having time to regroup over the international break, he will take his side to the capital to take on off-form Hibernian who are currently on a four-game losing streak. Despite the Edinburgh teams recent run, McIntyre knows that he will be up against a side that are much better than their league position tells us. “Without a shadow of a doubt,” answered McIntyre when questioned if he had seen an improvement from the team since coming in. “It has been taken on a wee bit from the Motherwell game and then even more positive in terms of the St Mirren performance. It is just about trying to turn that and the small margins into points. “But we know we are facing a top side in Hibs. They are an exciting team to watch and have a lot of attacking threat. We have to go there and make sure we are putting them under pressure. “You are going to have peaks and troughs throughout any season but with them being at home Lenny will have them fired up. “We know they have good players and they will be looking to take maximum points. But for us, the encouraging signs have been there and we want try and build on the St Mirren result.”
  12. Cammy Kerr was adjudged to have fouled St Mirren striker Simeon Jackson in the Dundee box with the player then stepping up to convert the penalty. Despite feeling aggrieved by this decision, the Dundee players reacted in a way they have failed to do so all season, by refusing to let their heads go down and levelling the score thanks to Kenny Miller’s first goal in a Dundee top. It was McIntyre’s side that looked more likely to win this tie but despite a much-improved performance, the team couldn’t find the breakthrough that they deserved. "I have watched it back. It is not a penalty for me, definitely not a pen,” said McIntyre. "But the referee gave it and the most important thing was my players' response to it. "It was very soft so that was disappointing but the reaction of the players was great because it would be easy to feel sorry for ourselves after that because we stated the game well. "But credit to the lads, they dug in. "For what we put into the game we deserved to win. We had the stronger chances but we couldn't find the net a couple of more times. "That was the disappointing factor. But delighted with the players in terms of what they gave us. "A far, far better tempo, the way I want to play and got ourselves into some really dangerous positions."
  13. David Turnbull’s wonder goal was all that separated both sides as Motherwell collected all three points to leave Dundee and also St Mirren firmly in the bottom two. Darren O’Dea’s header in the early part of the match came off the bar and despite numerous penalty claims, the Dee were unable to find their first goal in four matches and their fifth straight defeat. In spite of this, McIntyre was encouraged by what he had seen. “The way we lost the ball before the goal was really disappointing but it was a lot more positive and a lot like I expect us to play in terms of doing our jobs and doing the ugly side of the game,” he said. “We switched the play very well and that got us into wider areas, but it was just the final bit. “It’s going to take them a wee while to get used to what I expect, the demands that are going to be placed on them every day, not just at the games. Slowly but surely, they are starting to get to grips with that. “But, having said that, we need to pick up results as well because we don’t want to get detached. It’s important we get a result next week.”
