Manager's Programme Notes


People have talked about Rangers so much, that Hibs have gone un-noticed by so many. Yes, we had them watched last Saturday and I'd rather not mention what Bert Slater said about them. Nevertheless, the team of the moment with a rather "keen competitive" edge to their good team play- a team that we will have to work against but it's well within our grasp to win. A super match is expected- let's have "your" vital vocal support, it's so important!

Aberdeen and ourselves seem to have come out of the computer with the odds against us - three games at home and five away in our first eight. But with two home matches in front of us let's hope we redress the odds in our favour. It's up to us lads - let's go!!

Twelve weeks gone already. Been asked many times, how I'm settling down? What's the biggest difference between English and Scottish football? Received many letters, believe it or not, complimentary and otherwise which have really opened my eyes!! Thanks to everybody for making my early days so welcome. Thanks Bob Millar of Strathaven for letter of the week. Next time at Dens, introduce yourself to me!

Proud of our injured boys? Eric Ferguson must be fed up at the sight of the injury room. Can I say 'well done' Fergie! But good news: of Bobby Glennie (that old war horse!) who is recovering really well, elegant lan Angus who we think is just a stone's throw away, of Nipper, and George and Tom. A great bunch of guys who make a great club here at Dundee.
