  2. How did you rate James McPake's team selection, substitutions and performance today?
  3. The ref against Partick Thistle was Bobby Madden. How did you rate his performance in this game?
  4. The Dark Blues were leading 1 – 0 thanks to a Paul McGowan goal in the 25th minute and were in complete control of the game up until the second half. However, Partick Thistle eventually went on to win the game, and Dundee fans on Social Media such as Twitter and Facebook suggesting it was the managers substitutions which lead the home defeat last weekend. The Dundee boss substituted Shaun Byrne and Paul McGowan for two youngsters Fin Robertson and Josh McPake during the second half against Partick Thistle and came into some criticism from the Dundee faithful. However, the manager spoke of his reasons behind the substitutions: “At the time I thought we were struggling to deal with Kenny Miller getting into space which is why Fin went on.” “Paul McGowan was dead on his feet; his partner had a baby last Tuesday and was poorly. Thankfully, the baby is doing okay now.” “On Saturday morning we found out he was coming to play so it was a minor miracle to get 73 minutes and that performance out of him.” “He was outstanding in the game so I can see why people would question him coming off.” “I got praise for making substitutions at Dunfermline that worked, which is great – I have to take the stick when it comes, too.” Dundee will face Ayr United this Friday night.
  5. The ref against Partick Thistle was David Munro. How did you rate his performance in this game?
  6. Dundee’s meeting with bottom club Partick Thistle today offers the chance to build on their last league win against Arbroath, and continue the progress I think they are capable of. It has been a tough start to the season but the big gap between them and United which threatened to be insurmountable a few weeks ago has narrowed to six points…or two derby day wins. There is ability in the squad which James McPake has assembled. The do need, though, a rub of the green and the backing of the fans, along with the freedom to play the football they are capable of. Graham Dorrans in midfield has the craft to be the creative midfielder the team has lacked; in Declan McDaid they have an energetic wide man who can beat an opponent, provide crosses, and chip in with goals; and there is energy and ability spread through the squad. The manager just needs to find the magic recipe to make all of those ingredients mix to make the cake rise. Getting the ingredients of a team to blend can be frustrating but if he can do that there is potentially a sweet-looking side ready to satisfy the taste buds of Dens fans. View the full article

  8. The ref against Partick Thistle was William Collum. How did you rate his performance in this game?
  9. The Dark Blues travel to Firhill tomorrow in what seems like a important bottom of the table clash. Thistles last win was an impressive 3-1 win over St Johnstone away from home, they have drawn against Motherwell and lost 2-0 to Rangers in their last league game. Thistle gave the champions a scare last week in the cup when they lost 3 - 2. The Dark Blues lost 3 - 2 during the week to Kilmarnock, just when it looked like the visitors could snatch three points, the home side came back after being 10 men down to win the game. This was a game which Neil McCann lambasted the players performance "criminal" and "unprofessional". A win at the weekend would put more space between us and the bottom three side, County, Hamilton and Partick and would move us away from that 'Danger' area. However, a loss could propel us further down the league. County have a tough tie against the in form team of the moment Hearts, Hamilton are at home against Rangers and St Johnstone are away to Celtic. Motherwell and Kilmarnock face each other in the top half of the table. With all these ties, most of the lower sides are facing the top half teams, and with any luck results could go our way at the weekend. Fingers crossed!
  10. Alan Fraser from The Jagcast was ever so kind to talk to us at the last minute and answer some hastily put together questions! This is the first of three very important matches for Partick Thistle. After us you square up away to both Hamilton and Ross County. Could these three games define your season? It's squeaky bottom relegation dogfight time with the present bottom five clubs semi-detached from Motherwell and Kilmarnock at the moment. Of course these are three big games for Thistle and our respective opponents. Hard to not deal in cliches, six pointers etc. HUGE MATCHES! Correct me if I’m wrong but I think Thistle only brought in player in the January window (Defender Baily Cargill). Were you disappointed that Archibald wasn’t involved in more wheeling and dealing? I really don't think we really needed to strengthen in any other area if the players coming back from injury are fit and ready. Losing Jordan Turnbull was a blow and with Milan Nitriansky being released and James Penrice being recalled from his loan spell at Livingston I think Archie did what was required. The squad now looks much stronger than earlier in the season. Thistle have a habit of kicking on in the second half of the season. Are you confident that your club can do it again? Confident? More hopeful than confident I suppose. We have been playing much better recently than earlier in the season. With Kris Doolan still scoring goals and the recent form of Conor Sammon we pose more of a goal threat at present. Time to push on, yes. Our last match seen Dundee run out 3-0 winners with Danny Devine having a fairly forgettable match. Was this result and performance a bit of a shock to you? I was a bit shocked at the scoreline that's for sure. I can't comment on the team performance as I didn't make that match. And if Danny Devine had a forgettable match then I'm prepared to forget about it too. Both teams need a win here massively. I’d be happy with a point at Firhill if Hamilton and County failed to pick up any but how do you think Saturdays match will end? Saturday's match will end with Thistle running out 4-1 winners. This time. Definitely.
  11. There is no match report yet. Please come back later.
  12. The Dark Blues eased to victory with a fine performance to take the three points and a step out of the relegation spots! Two goals from Moussa (from the penalty spots) and O'Hara made it three. Neill McCann certainly got the reaction he wanted after the midweek defeat.
  13. A Sofien Moussa double, both from penalties, and another strike from midfielder Mark O’Hara gave Dundee a much needed 3-0 victory after suffering back-to-back defeats against Aberdeen and Hearts last week. “I’m smiling. I didn’t hide that I was so disappointed (on Tuesday), I’ve said it in a load of interviews about a lack of application and responsibility,” said McCann. “I think we showed that when the application is right, we look a right good side so I am really happy with the performance and some really good individual performances in a great team performance. “The main thing for me was the energy levels. We broke forward with unbelievable good purpose and that put Partick on the back foot.” “It was total team performance. “From how poor we were on Tuesday night, to flip it to how good we were says a lot about them.” Dundee’s victory along with Ross County’s defeat seen the Dee move back out of the bottom two, sitting two points behind Hamilton who are ninth
  14. Our next opponents Partick Thistle are sitting bottom of the league but will be buzzing after successfully taking all three points at home to Motherwell on Wednesday and know a win will see them leapfrog the Dee. To look ahead at our ‘Bottom of the Table’ clash, we again spoke to Alan Fraser from The JagsCast. Our last meeting ended in frustration for Dundee who should have easily won the tie but instead Thistle came from a goal behind to register their first win of the season. A great feeling after nine matches without a win? Yes, that last game against Dundee was smash and grab to be fair. Dundee had a load of chances and Tomas Cerny saved us more than once that day. First with the penalty save (in another season he would have been sent off for the challenge). His second half save from Moussa was brilliant although he shouldn't have had a chance with it. And yes it was a great feeling. Things then seemed to be picking up with a draw then win against Hamilton and St Johnstone but since then a bad run has seen the team hit bottom of the league and tonight another defeat. This must have been frustrating to witness? This season has been hugely frustrating. There have been some abject performances, some terrible defending with occasional flashes of good play. Our old campaigners like Chris Erskine and Stevie Lawless have underperformed and the new guys Miles Storey and Conor Sammon have shown no consistency. We can't keep using injuries as an excuse as the guys we have fit have to get on with it. The truth is though that Booth, Elliott, Bannigan and especially Osman are badly missed to give us pace on the flanks and power in the midfield. Last night you stormed back from a 5-1 drubbing at Killie to defeat Motherwell at home. At on point you were 3-0 to the good but ‘Well managed to claw two goals back. I don’t think anyone in Scotland were expecting a first half performance like that from Thistle! Last night in the first half hour Thistle blew Motherwell away in a manner not seen from us in the league this season. We know we are capable of playing like that though. We brushed aside St Mirren in the Right Said Fred Cup in a similar manner. Motherwell nearly clawed it back though. The last few minutes must have been treacherous? Motherwell changed things at half time and really gave us a game in the second half and we were holding on by the final whistle. So it’s the bottom two on Saturday. Whoever losses will be bottom come the final whistle. With the teams all around us still quite near each another, is It time for panic just yet? Especially with the January transfer window just around the corner? Not time for panic as there are plenty of points to be played for and other teams will pick up injuries and go on bad runs (I hope). I'm certainly an Alan Archibald fan if that is what the question is. Speaking of which, do you think Partick will be doing some business to freshen up the squad and if so, who would you like to see brought in or what position needs looked at? As to freshening up in January I'm sure the management team will be having a look at our long term injuries and assessing where we need strengthening and cover. They may have to do a bit of juggling with perhaps young James Penrice returning from his loan spell at Livingston for example. We could also do with a forty goals a season striker. Finally, Predictions? Another 4-1 in memory of the 71/72 Partick League Cup winners? Yes. Partick Thistle will beat Dundee 4-1 on Saturday.
