Time to go for a back 3, with two wing backs and more in the middle of the park.  Not too surprised tbh with today. We are now going into more winnable games, need to win at least 2 out our next 3 league games, or questions will start be asked. However, I do feel we won't get relegated, think Kilmarnock will.

Strange substitutions today. Maybe too much to say it cost us the match, but it looked like it affected our performance.

Allan, Kamara, and Deacon taken off. Very strange.

A Rangers team only in name. They're not quite as pish as last season, but shipping out 4 to them is still an absolute shambles.

The fact they're an Old Firm team will mask over what is once again a very alarming performance. We're nowhere near playing a full round of fixtures and the season's pretty much already confirmed as another relegation battle.

Happy Saturday lads, get used to it.

I have to say watching that game, McCann was the one who made the mistakes with the team selection and that early sub. Will never understand why he decided to take Allan off early in the game. Unless there was an injury issue with him, then there was no need for him to be removed. Me and my Son looked at each other in bewilderment at that and couldn't come up with a reason. I guess McCann will explain later on DeeTV why!

To lose 4 goals to any team is shocking, and I feel we haven't learned any lessons and it will be tight this year. Will take 10th position again this year.

NM isn't giving me the vibe that he knows what his best team is imo.  Kamara must be confused as hell wondering who will be playing alongside him next week.  Spence didn't do that bad but is he the answer?  I've got a big worry about Deacon, Allan and El Bak in games like this.  None of these players provides enough cover to our defence and Kerr and Holt are being sold a lot of the time with two on ones.  Tavernier and Wallace had acres of room throughout the game.  This game was crying out for O'Dea and McGowan as far as I was concerned.  We were rudderless.

Its a typical Dundee result...

Was it a typical performance? Seems as though it was poorer than recent games from reading the comments. Any reason why? Looked as though first half we were conceding possession but did better second half but lost 3 goals to one being scored.

PH type substitutions...come on Dundee that result and the start to the season are both unacceptable. McGowan has to start.

sh*t scared to play Rangers at ibrox it seems.

We never turn up to these games and are completely dominated every f**king time.

Other teams have gone to Ibrox and put in a good shift this season. We've not!

Still early days but it I hope everyone is ready for another relegation battle.

On paper squad looks good but in reality, we are bloody rancid. I struggle to see where we are gonna pick up points.

Would imagine McGowan will be bursting with enthusiasm.

Didn't think I would say this when we signed him but Scott Allan is a championship player. He has never do it in the premier league and I don't think  he will. It's getting harder and harder to even think we are gonna win. I'm all for giving the laddies at the back a chance but it's not working. We really need to start getting Deacon and whoever is on the left to the bye line, moussa seems to be a penalty box striker but there is no service for him.

There were phases that were just embarrassing.  Players making easy passes that either went to a Rangers player or out of the park.  Balls being played into feet and ball control and touch like an elephant.  Zero composure on the ball.  All of this wasn't throughout the whole game, just in phases but it was enough.  We played a more pressing game 2nd half but it opened the game out, suited the Rangers et viola.  Back to the drawing board.

Minus 8 goals says it all.

I was waiting for us to concede on half time and as usual along it came as certain as Xmas.

Its terrible pressure for the team to be faced with 'must wins' already.

McCann knows he's got one hell of a job on his hands.

So what's our best team?

Allan continues to be played wide left which leaves us badly exposed and I say it's about time we either bench him or play him in the centre.

I feel that he is wasted out on the left, always does best in the centre of the park.

Agree with a lot being said here. It seems the addition of Allan is actually hampering us as he is being shoehorned into the team on the left. Which leaves us unbalanced IMO. I'm not sure how much he is going to offer us this season unless we can find a system to get him involved. Perhaps a 4411 or diamond 442. We need to find someone to play wide left, and hopefully wolters can step up now as el bak is not in a million years a midfielder you want to have to track back and help out holt. 

Id personally go

Bain

kerr hendry meekings/Odea holt

deacon kamara gowser wolters

.                 Allan

.                  A-j

The only saving grace is KILLIE look to be poor and along with partick still only have 1 point also and we have played Hibs Rangers and Aberdeen already. But we MUST find a settled team/formation quickly.

Totally agree mate.

He has to be played in the middle or drop him to the bench. His performances are getting worse.
