Is Sat's ICT Game Now Become (Another) ..... "Must Win Game"


Gedee

Recommended Posts

Every game, every week, seems to now fall into the "must win category"  After Tuesdays's game, this one maybe does (imo)

For the sake of Dundee FC, Our Manager. The Team,The Supporters. And even to get some perspective back to TDB posters,

As 5.00pm draws near on Sat. I hope all of us DFC fans have reason for celebration. And what follows is happy positive forum.

I've not added anything at all to the post game forum posts/comments. Maybe because it's all been said (or I just do not know)

I think I am one of those posters mentioned, who have been at times, overhigh in my praise of PH. Maybe too slow to criricise.

Still believe tho' this stubborness, is a belief/determination to do it right. Still learning, but a hard working ambitious professional.

Who knows exactly what is going on in his mind (I am sure like all of us, he is not sure himself, when/why, things go all wrong)

Anyway, this topic is not about focusing on PH and team tactics. Although I wish he could choose a team from a fully fit squad.

Really, really, hope, we get that great performance and victory on Sat. "Happy Days Again"  For DFC, Team, Manager, & Forum.

Another defeat, especialy after Tuesday. (And our great start in our 4-0 opening away game) is not what any of us want, or need.

Let's do it right DFC. Let's get this, back on track "C'mon the DEE " Make Sat's game a game to remember for the right reasons.

Cup games are must win. No second chances.

We'll be OK in the league, probably mid table. But we're not strong enough mentally to win the bigger games. We seem to play well when there's no real pressure.

Can see us struggling against their midfield again, but with Tansey and Warren out then that's a big loss for them.

If we want to win the league then Saturday is indeed must win.

If we don't harbor those aspirations then no. It is a game we should be winning looking at Caleys team and form. If we don't win this board will be unreadable - seems to be a high proportion of negative posters coming to the fore this past week or 2.

Sorry guys, I am always going to be of the opinion that every single game is a "must win" game, no matter how far into the season we are.

To go out thinking otherwise is self-defeating.

Yes, we know it probably won't be, against the likes of Celtic, but it shouldn't stop the team looking upon it as a "we must take something from this game".

Over the course of the season every single point dropped and every single goal scored against us can end up costing us dear.

(What price scraping the league win by goal difference when our nearest rival wins 10-2?)

I agree, to expect to win every game may be a little foolish, but we most certainly should never go out thinking "ach we're gonna lose" or even "Yeah a draw will do us"

Is ICT a *must win*? The same as any other game is.

Because, if that mind-set is not in place, we find ourselves in a position where the number of games begins to run out, and then some become truly must win. (And all the resultant pressures that brings, which can lead to making sure we don;t do so!)

At the VERY least every game should be a "mustn't lose"

ETA:

I get the point, however, that from a diferent view point (IE- The sanity of our support and the stabilty of the fanbase and indeed to end the rumblings against the team/club/PH) then, additionally for those reasons alone, yes... ICT is a must win.)

Oh I want us to go out and win every game.

When we play Aberdeen / Celtic / Utd away I often say I'll take a draw (for different reasons)

Must win games are those that have dire consequences if you don't get all 3 points - sucked into a relegation place, missing out on Europe, difference between op and bottom 6 (financially more than prestige wise), manager on a shoogly peg etc

The reality is if we lose to or draw with Caley we will  be disappointed but later in the season we will probably snatch an unexpected 3 points from somewhere and the Caley game won't be worth a jot in the scheme of things.

For a bit of perspective we won just 11 league games in the league last season and managed a 6th place finish. So far we have won 2 this season and have only played 1 team that is a stick on for bottom 6. We've had a tough start this season and have the same points tally as we did last season from a far easier set of fixtures.

The fact that Inverness are missing a lot of key players makes up for us missing our certain starters. Keep creating plenty of chances and the wins will come. Not sure if we have ever beat ICT at home before so hopefully we can win and after beating the saints finally at dens it would be a decent start to the league season despite missing key players.

Below the top 3 sides, every other home game ought to be treated as if it was a "must win", by the players.

If we have serious aspirations to finish 6th or higher, we need to be looking at those 8 finishing below us & that'll only happen if we take more points off them than they do from us.

We've not done so well against ICT recently, they've not started well, this really is the time to be winning.
