Manager's Programme Notes


It is always easy to write a page when things are going well but to say things are going badly at present is putting it mildly. After the good result at Firhill our last two results have been more than disappointing

We are giving away goals very very easily and if this was because of good play by our opponents we would have to admit they were better than we are. But the majority of these goals have been given away through mistakes by ourselves. No player ever goes on the field to make mistakes but unfortunately when a team is struggling and fighting for survival as we are players sometimes tend to try too hard and make the most elementary mistakes.

Confidence is a very important thing in football and once that starts to go a little everyone in a team is frightened to do things which come naturally to them in case they make an error, We must try to overcome this fear which exists in the team at the moment.

I get a lot of mail from our supporters telling me what is wrong with the team and I am always very grateful for any observations, but I am sure the vast majority of y know, as we know, what is wrong and needs to be rectified. Ther is no easy answer but we will continue to try to get away from our present position.

Today's game with Morton is a vital one for both clubs and Morton have proved already at Dens Park this season in the League Cup that they are a very difficult team to beat. They are a very hard-working side who operate very well as a unit. They never do favours for anyone and it is a great credit to my former team mate Benny Rooney that they have done so well in the Premier League these past seasons.

To-day we must send them back to Greenock empty handed. We thank you for your continued support and I am confident the tide will soon turn.
