Interesting to see a few votes for Hartley. I love the fact that our current manager is a contender for best Dundee manager in half a century. Just highlights that the club is going in the right direction.


Ivan's vote for Bonetti is an interesting one. Given the scandalous waste of potential I can see where he's coming from.

More than anything I think it shows how horrific we have been over the last 3 decades that getting 6th place even gets you considered!

I went for Jocky as best and even that is based on very little.

Dee-pressing.

Re ivano you are spot on Cobra. I voted him the worst as he had resources at his disposal that no other Dee manager could dream of and he delivered nothing. Yes A number of managers have had poorer squads etc but when you factor in how much he had to spend he is clearly the worst IMO.

I thought Donald Mackay and Frank Blunstone were on the verge of something special. A lot of people don't know he sewed the seeds if Blackburn's title einning side.

The worst? Maybe not result wise but for me Dave Smith. Any Dundee manager who claps the Arsbs off the park after humping us hasn't got a clue about our club.

Best was a toss-up between Archie and Prentice. As much as I liked Archie, Prentice got the nod due to the fact that he laid the foundations for our early 70s team.

Worst....dearie me,l where do you start. In the end Dave Smith got my vote, but it could easily have been Gemmell, Kernahan, Bonetti or Chisholm.

Fair point mate. I was just trying to put a positive spin on it. 

I voted for Coco as worst manager because he got rubbish results with a really good side. I read that his woeful attitude to training was a running joke amongst the players.

I find it  a wee bit annoying that Duffy gets slaughtered more than Bonetti despite the fact he was clearly the better manager. Bonetti gets an easy ride because folk remember the quality players who occasionally delivered.

Went for Knox as best cause my old man liked him as manager as I couldn't really decide on who our best was tbh considering the majority of my team supporting the dee we've been in the second tier so no had many to choose from, I liked Rae the best out of our awful stint in the 1st but would never say he was the best manager we've had since our best ever team! Hartley could yet be our best since but still early to say yet, this season will go a long way to sorting that out.

Worst I've went for Gordon phuckinggg Chisholm just cause the fact he was an awful awful manager and dodds as his psychic tae.. Canna believe we went for them and admin 2 shortly followed as well. Could have been kerno easily but I dislike them two worse than him.

Ps I liked Duffy as a young dee watching us he led us to a Scottish cup final, to Europe and I enjoyed some great games with him at the helm.. Downside was though, he brought me my darkest day as a dee as we got relegated in 2005 😕 after an utter capitulation near the end of that season.. Still hard to think we blew it big time that season so far ahead of danger to last day despair. 10 years on from that and look where we are though!

A few different ways of looking at this I suppose..

Could base it purely on the era's that I remember, results or "other" factors.

The worst is probably the easiest for me - Anybody taking over at Dens would need to be truly horrific in every way to do any worse than Alan Kernaghan's time in charge. Terrible times.

The best is trickier - Jocky for getting us to fifth in the Premier League? Duffy for getting us to two major finals? Knox was before my time but I'm well aware of the team he put together as well. Slim pickings during the darkest period in our history so I'll give my vote to Hartley as well.

His entire approach to management is what we've been crying out for since the mid eighties. Fairly certain that things will continue to look up for us with PH at the helm.
