Best performance of the season imo, soaked up pressure limiting RC to very few chances, hit them on the break and should have went in 2 nill up, (fucking paton). Fucking about wi the ball in the corner cost is the win, but was a super finish from vigurs, could of nicked it in the end with lewis shot, very happy tbh and i think we will pick up points till jan IF we play like that most weeks

He is a player if used correctly. 

2 simple rules for passing to Petravicius: 

Don't give him the ball when he's standing still with his back to goal.

Don't give him the ball above chest height.

He just needs someone to play accurate balls in front of him & he can be a joy to watch.

I think Muirhead has shown tonight what he brings.  He might not be a vocal captain (or perhaps the best choice for captain) but he put himself through that brick wall tonight.  How many other players would have done that?

I also thought Brough looks more of a centre back than the two actual centre backs we signed in the window.  Maybe they got the cards muddled up when we signed them.

As mentioned already, I think only Bauben was missing and we would have had the lowest number of players signed this season by the imposter of a manager.

Gutted we couldn't hang on and that it was our own bad luck with the clearance that cost the goal.

agree, this was the best performance by far this season. everyone on the park put in a real shift with the exception of McKee who looked like he was chasing shadows most of the night. But anyway, I won't focus on the small negatives, and even paton put in a hell of a shift.......I'm well aware of his limitations as a footballer but you can't fault his effort tonight. Best thing about the whole match.......it was actually good to watch, plenty of goal mouth action/chances, and even some decent link up passing and composure on the ball!!!!

have we turned a corner?, who knows, but at least we know these players are capable of putting in a decent performance and it gives us something to build on as the new faces eventually arrive. 

well done tonight, especially considering most folks thought we were on a hiding to nothing.

Bit harsh on Joe boi. Thought he was decent. Got caught out once or twice which resulted in us giving up the ball but is tidy and keeps the ball moving. Unlike Paton who just lumps it in to whichever box he is facing. That said, Paton was also above his usual 2/10 levels tonight.

i know, normally i'd agree with you and would pick McKee for the team myself.......but I watched him second half tonight and he barely got near the ball once, and I can't recall him putting in a challenge. Not sure if it's fitness or what, but in my book he was probably the weakest on the park tonight. Maybe if he gets some consistent time in the team he'll get a bit more drive.

I kind of like the guy. But 3 managers in, he’s done only that one free kick against Utd that’s worth talking about. Just not good enough. 

Not that Paton is any better. 

Bairnardo - do you have any thoughts on Paton?

I think we need to give some credit when it's due, apart from his miss just before HT. I thought Paton done well, he was all over the park, broke up play, never scared to get stuck in and looked much fitter than he's been, still closing people down and charging all over the park right up to the final whistle

I know the boo boys will not like this but I'm sure that's the player McKinnon plays every week as he knows his capabilities.

Well done, maybe give his confidence a boost. Showed some heart and passion, pretty awful miss though...

I thought Paton was pretty poor to be honest and his miss was pretty special. He hardly endearing himself to the crowd though, especially when give a section of the crowd the finger late on in the game. He did get told by McKinnon to shut the f**k up which I enjoyed. Petra and Irving both excellent but was surprised with Petra being taken off though. Haber is one lazy b*****d.

Petra signalled to the bench he was injured

Just shows you how far we've fallen when we're simply praising players for running about a lot. Effort was certainly  a lot better tonight apart from McKee who looked like he couldn't be arsed and Haber who was murder again.  Still a severe lack of quality from the likes of paton, Rudden and muirhead who would be 3 of the first players i'd be looking to replace with real quality.  Thought petra and mcghee were excellent and Robson was a breath of fresh air again. Worrying that mckinnon cant see he needs to start every week when its so obvious to many. Our team of a couple of seasons back wouldve won that game comfortably which makes it all even more annoying when theres a title and promotion there for the taking. Anyway if we can get a few players in quick then all is perhaps not lost.

Let’s be honest here, zero point in bemoaning a league here for the taking when our only possible aim is to avoid relegation.
Let’s get that job done then look to get back amongst the promotion contenders next season.

Just on the Robson point, when McKinnon decided to change the system to one in which Robson can play, he put him straight in and got a performance out of him. Not sure what the issue is there. I would have him at LB and Brough in the middle even in a 4 with McGhee, but I think it is now pretty clear Robson is seen as a LWB and when we need one, he will play.

That's exactly what we were saying this time last year. By the time we get a decent team on the park(if ever) you just know that United will be getting there game together and Dundee will be buying there way out the league. You've got to strike when the time is right which has been last season and this season. No point in having a decent  side when you've got hee haw chance of winning the league .
