Hibs v Dundee

  1. 1. What are you expecting when the Dee go to Easter Road?

    • A surprise win
    • A hard-fought draw
    • A narrow loss
    • A crushing defeat
  2. 2. Who should be in the starting XI?



Recommended Posts

2 goals in 2 games for Kenny Miller, both important goals for us.  What a difference having a goalscorer playing up front makes.

Whilst I am not exactly swinging from the chelandelears (May not be the correct spelling but who cares) I am pleased that there appears to be some fight in the team imo. A happier weekend but hopefully will get better in the next few weeks.

Apathy starting to be replaced with a wee bit of pride- time for everyone, who can,  to get along to Dens in a fortnight and provide “Deefiant” backing.

Absolutely this. Will be a struggle but we have been through these before. If we could get the crowd going then you never know. Dens can be  a hostile environment when the crowd get behind dundee.

The belief that JM appears to have given to some of these players and the team in general is striking.  In recent times we would have been beaten at 1-0 with particular players waving the white flag.  Not this bunch.  Coming from 2-0 behind at Easter Road against a more than decent Hibs team deserves some plaudits.  Well  done to everyone involved and supporting the team.  Really looking forward to the Hamilton game now.

Delighted with that. Unbeaten in two games now, confidence will be on the up! This isn't McIntyre's squad yet, so this is a massive improvement going to Easter Road, where Hamilton got 5+ against them and we come away with a point and did have chances to win. We were organised and creating chances, radio saying Dundee were well 'structured' something I haven't heard in a while! 

Doesn't matter about St Mirren's result today in my view. We are closing in on Hamilton which is the aim.  

We can do this! 

Agree with everything you say, Neil McCan't, has left our Club in a hell of a mess, including the 5 / 6  wage stealing wasters, that are not physically or mentally prepared to follow Jim McIntyre's future game plans, so today's result, does show progress, good seeing us being far fitter now, after Jim got rid of McCan'ts so called fitness coach.

McGowan's attitude was spot on today and never let up.

The one player who has impressed me since coming back into the team has been the 'General'. Pity about the own goal today though.

Agree with you on the above and it never ceases to amaze me the effect that a settled 'core' team can have.  I would add that in the poll at the top of this page, the leader in choices to start is O'Dea with 53 out of 54.  I don't think his return to the team and our better form is any coincidence.

And NM tried to punt him to Falkirk an hour before the window closed 🙄

Nathan Ralph seems to be making the left back position his own, that was a great effort from him for the first goal today, beat his man and put in a great cross for Miller to score.

O'Dea has shown in the last few days why he shouldn't have been left out the team. It is interesting that both Innis and Boyle have been no where the team.

Haven't we played more or less 4-4-2 with players in their correct positions for a good few games now?

Agree, O'Dea is a leader we have been crying out for. McIntyre will bring in players who can play at this level. 

Nabi, Elton, Deacon, Boyle, Mendy and maybe Moussa will all be away come January. Maybe even Meekings tbh, how he is captain is beyond me, another McCann masterclass. 

Will be an exciting January though!

I think Boyle may still have a part to play and would t be surprised if his loan is extended ....the rest good 👋

Just shows how  shockingly poor McCann  was.  Can't help but wonder how we might be now  if only Nelms had done what was needed earlier. The least  he can do is give McIntyre some funds to try and sort the squad out in January, to make amends for his serious error of judgement.

Add madianga and possibly Spence to that list.

November has been heartening imo.  The team looks a lot more solid and compact and we've really ben undone by a class long distance effort, a dodgy penalty and an own goal.  This kind of sh*t is sent to test you though and we have generally shown an excellent fighting spirit.

Hopefully we will still be 6 or so points in touch with 10th position.

But it's not just us that can strengthen the squad.

In an ideal world yes but that just isn't going to happen.  The January transfer window is notoriously underwhelming  and disappointing so I would be happy with a couple of decent signings.  The others, I think most we are probably stuck with until the summer.  I would keep Boyle anyway.

I'd wager that he'll bring Alex Schalk in.

 

Always wanted to see him in a Dee shirt, great wee player!
