Farningham: Support new boss

Ray Farningham has pleaded with Dundee's fans to get behind recently-appointed John Brown who took over as interim manager of the Dark Blues on Saturday.

A number of fans have shown their displeasure at Brown's arrival with many of them walking out of a meeting with the board at Dens Park over the weekend.

Dundee remain 15 points adrift at the base of the SPL table and speaking after Sunday's 5-0 defeat by Celtic, the club's assistant manager said: "I don't know about John's credentials, all I know is that he will give it 100 per cent.

"And he will do everything to try to get the club moving forward and I'm quite sure he will because that is what we have to do now.

"We have big games coming up and the supporters need to get behind the team and the manager.

"It has been very difficult for everybody, the staff and the players but they have to get on with it.

"It is not John's fault, I have got to emphasise that, it is not his fault."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
