Another Friday night long distance jaunt for the Dees.

Will Ayr United have McIntyre in the dugout?

Will Dundee have McPake in the dugout?

2-0 Dundee, Johnson and Nelson. (Ha, aye right)

Just basing it on here, this is a mighty hard game for McPake to retain any faith whatsoever amongst the support. Play off spot is all I ask for, but reckon the knives will be out (If not deemed to be out already) and based on the start to this season and last, it won't come much tougher.

Get Mackie away from the line-up. Perhaps even go more narrow with something like:

Hamilton

Kerr McGhee Meekings Marshall

                          Byrne

                Dorrans   Ness (If finally back fit - Robertson if not)

                            McGowan

        Hemmings        Nelson/Johnson.

Get 2 up top. Our wide midfielders are proving to be pish. McDaid probably the exception to this but unbelievably inconsistent. 2 up top. Gets the likes of Dorrans, McGowan and Byrne playing in their natural position. Gets Forster out the side. Gets McGhee back to where he's best even if Cammy has been chronic.

Jim McIntyre to get his Ayr managerial career off to a flyer.

I don't like your line up Ludo.

It puts too much pressure on the full backs and if McDaid is going to raise his game a bit for any, it will be this one.

Thank you.

Swap McGhee for Meekings or Forster and put Kerr in at RB and it has my vote.

Thank you.

I watched Forster get the ball today and do a turn, an "inside cut" if you like, with nobody for miles around.

I couldn't help but think to myself 'Are you trying to prove that you can dribble under absolutely no pressure?' Minter.

Thank you.

 

If we win this one we will only be 3 points off top for Friday night at least, which makes today's result even worse.

If McIntyre is appointed you will lose Friday.  It's just how these things go I'm afraid.

Fair enough - I just want us to play to our strengths. On paper our central midfield is the strongest we've had in a long time. I'm not sure our width is a strong point. Granted, our full backs don't need anymore pressure on them than they already get but I'd say that Kerr and Marshall's plus point is that they have boundless energy. 

I'm of the opinion that we should play to our strengths and itll hopefully bypass our weaknesses . I get that it's not for everyone and could quite easily be an absolute disaster.

Cammy at RB and McGhee. Gives us 1 shite CB instead of the usual 2

Not too optomistic for this one, in saying that BBC ended up with a good showing with it being the new managers debut however we're usually gash on the telly plus will no doubt be a usual Friday night shitty crowd, new manager better not be expecting a red carpet welcome of 3,000 home fans. Going by Dunfermline game today we seemed pretty ropey at the back so could probably do with Bell or Adams back there on Friday to compose things however that seems unlikely. 

1-1

Luckily for me I will be at the Carole King show in the Caird Hall so will miss this. Will it be 'One Fine Day' or 'Time Don't Run Out For Me' for James McPake?
