    Dundee FC V Queens 30/11/2019

    Has anyone got over the disappointment of last Saturday yet that they feel ready to discuss this Saturday's match? Our second trip to the City of Discovery in a fortnight which hopefully won't see us suffer the same fate as the recent showing at United's ground. Hopefully there is some good news on the injury front, I would be a bit more confident going into this if Kilday, El Bak and Hamilton had a chance of being involved. After our last two results and performances, especially the QP one, the Management and players should be busting a gut to get back on a winning track, but such is the unpredictability of this division the outcome of any game is almost impossible to call. Dundee will obviously start as favourites but we all know that with Queens anything can happen. Come on "Magic" get the players' heads up for this game and give the fans something to cheer. I'm sure with a run of 2 or 3 good results the Queens Park result won't seem quite as bad. (even though it still will be)

    We desperately need these injured players back ASAP as we know how the team can perform with them in it. We also need a goal from Sir Stephen. He’s looking really frustrated out there and a goal or two will boost his confidence.

    Let's hope the Queens Park result is put behind us and the players concentrate on the league.

    The players do have the ability, - we've seen that against Dundee Utd and Ayr, - so we just need to pull together and we'll be fine.

    'Mon the South!

    Hopefully Jardi as last night's draw between Partick and Alloa has inched them a wee bit closer to us and it is extremely tight between the bottom clubs now.

    Injury situation appears to be clearing with only young Hamilton definitely ruled out of the match. After last week's debacle it is important that the players at the very least show some fight and that they are on board with the management team. A win is very unlikely at Dens Park but with the right attitude and commitment we may just scrape a draw. Mon the South.

    As you say Spike, the very least we should expect is that the players show a bit of commitment and fight, a defeat however disappointing is at last more bearable if you can see a bit of effort going in. Irrespective of any alleged friction behind the scenes the players are professionals and should be striving to do their best in every game. The Management share a responsibility too, to employ tactics that play to our players' strengths which means at least not continually punting high balls up to our front men.

    Punting high balls to our short forwards is both futile and the most frustrating thing to watch therefore should only happen when there are no other options available.

    Totally agree with your comments above Spike and Auld Chippy, and perhaps the advice has been taken on board with that wonderful win at Dundee.

    I followed the score on my computer all afternoon and was amazed to see us one nil up! To continue right through the second half effectively unchallenged seemed too good to be true until into injury time when Dundee pulled one back and I thought we'd blown 2 hard earned points.

    I then couldn't believe that Dobbie had secured the points with what appears to be the last kick of the ball.

    I suspect the players and management team have given themselves a good shake after last week, - and all I can say is well done for that.

    Can we keep up the good work in the league and propel ourselves into the top four?

    Clearly you have the ability, - you just need to get the attitude right, - and yes I am talking directly to the players and management here. There is simply no excuse for not giving a 100% in every match, - after all its your job.

    Great 2-1 win for the Doonhamers at Dens Park with a Dobbie double 29 & 90+3 just after Johnson 90+2 had equalised for the Dee.

    Well we clearly got the response we were looking for following that dismal game against Queen Park but why oh why do they keep putting us through the wringer and such a relief to see Dobbie snatching it at the end. It is hard to take for us auld uns

    Jardi- The belief of a pro Queens Doonhamer!
    If a Queens fan is amazed we went 1-0 up, then no wonder the Dumfries public mock the club that havenít played in tho top division in nearly 60 years! ☹️

    Well after last week's shambles that's a great result. Great credit to all involved.

    Truthhurts, - you obviously did not witness the debacle of last week then?

    This season is clearly one where the players perform some bizarre Jeckyll and Hyde transformation; the performances against Dundee Utd and Ayr Utd have been breath-taking whilethose against ICT and in particular Queens Park have been jaw droppingly bad.

    Indeed, drugs tests might be the order of the day, because one week they are on uppers, while the next they're on downers!

    Holt appeared to be the nominated wide target man today, unfortunately he didn't win too many headers and those he did win rarely found a teammate. It might seem a bit churlish picking faults after such a fine result but what has happened to McCrorie? When he started here at first he was always trying to set up quick attacks with long throw outs and kick outs, now he hangs onto the ball giving the opposition defence time to get back. Obviously he's a cracking keeper but that was one part of his game that set him aside a bit from keepers we've had before.
