In fairness we have no scouting network. It’s not like he can go and watch players down south when we’re playing at the same time. We need to try and get a scouting network in place rather than have the manager go and watch every target.

He said fairly early last season that he was surprised to find we had no scouting setup....but since then he's said he had 'something in place', to get players watched. I don't think too many managers get to watch potential signings, but they ought to have guys they trust, ie coaches, assistant, etc who can miss one of our games & go watch someone for NM.

Stating the bleeding obvious....but it appears not so in Dens Park.

We were offered Vincent Janssen (Now Tottenham striker) for around 300,000£ while he was at Almere City by our Dutch contacts but we couldn't afford it........Would of been money well spent. McCann does have a group of scouts now though, some looking at young players for the academy and some for current 1st team. Along with our scouts he has can people he knows in their country what their thoughts are.

Yup and I'll point all the disgruntled towards the Q & A he did with the early ST buyers, he discusses it all there.

Does he 100% use that? Was he not complaining when he first came into the club as manager that we didn’t have much of a scouting system but I thought he would of changed the way of scouting players. 

Spot on Rosco. Some are just too happy to stick the boot in that they completely bypass the facts.

Not a dig at the OP by the way, more the silent assassin(s) sitting in the background waiting on a result and performance like today's. Must've made their day.⭐

I have watched Ralph three times now and each time he has been made to surrender possession far too easily.  So far he looks way  out of his depth. Mendy may or may not turn out all right, but is relatively small.  McCann needs to get for someone with a bit of physical presence up front. As it stands, with Moussa injured, our forward line is like three wee boys with Wighton, Henvey and Mendy.  CW gets away with murder, his performance today was weak and ineffective again. We get one performance in fourteen from him.  Henvey cant be expected to lead the line and Mendy just cant. We are so desperately needing a forward. If we are left with the striking  options we saw today prior  kick-off, we will be in the doodoo come the end of the season again, scrapping for survival.
