Hello Abernethy ... Just thought I'd congratulate you for managing to put so much enthusiasm in what is a relatively short post .

Good interview. I know he means it.  I wouldn't have chosen him first although would have liked to see him getting prepared to take over at the club at some point. Here now and will get my backing.  I voted no but I am absolutely delighted for him.

It could be said it's not all about talking the talk & the words have got to be turned to winning performance, results & points.

But at this very early stage, I feel I've listened to a thoughtful, honest knowledgeable man, that has grown in confidence & stature in a matter of weeks, since his first conversation on camera, as caretaker man. John Nelms, a few days ago was reported as saying, he was impressed with Jim Goodwin. I really cannae believe, he came over any better than this. He has proved already he has the heart & courage of a lion. And his love & respect for DFC (players & fans) shone all the way through this interview. I wish him well.

Big Welcome Again James (& Jimmy)...In now your new permanent roles :wub:

Let's all get behind him. The club, the players & all supporting staff.DFC:chaplin:

Next thing we need to get sorted is someone to conduct interviews, I always find myself cringing at some of the daft questions.

Totally agree mate. I think that video was from the tully so not sure who the interviewer was

“Are you willing to share with us who your signing targets are?”

I know, that was a bit naive. Where do you want to be at the end of the season and have BOD set you any targets were also a bit daft.

I thought that interview should've been something positive to promote the new appointment. Instead we got a laddie just out of nappies asking awkward questions and putting McPake on the spot.

I take your point Rev ..

But that of course is a reflection of the interviewer & no' the person who has to try to respond to them on a knowledgeable, serious (or humorous) level.

Some questions by the paid professionals, are so obvious & daft, I am surprised the interviewee can even keep a straight face, let alone answer them :wacko:

James gets top marks fae me today, for the way he presented & answered :happyyes:

Speaking today at his press conference new Dundee manager James McPake confirms Gordon Strachan involvement and also confirms Andy O'Boyle joining the backroom staff.

 

O'Boyle who is currently Head of Elite Performance for the English Premier League was also a coach at Coventry City, Liverpool and Manchester United.

 

Very important ^^^^ and not part of the McPake video I've seen.

Securing Nicholl and O'Boyle is very significant. Presume that's Ross Hughes surplus to requirements?.

I wonder if he was considered when we signed MacIntyre. Might have been a different story now.

The club can only provide the boy to answer the questions, its up to the media to get someone in to ask some serious questions. If they want to screw up the chances to ask some proper questions, that's on them.

Having said that the questions being put on DEETV  historically were truely embarrassing.

What was far worse though was McCann's responses when he had lost the plot.
