Danny Lennon: Angered by "Jekyll-and-Hyde" performance

Dougie Imrie fired Saints ahead early on at Dens Park, but Dundee dominated the second half and goals from John Baird and Jim McAlister secured a rare three points for the home side.

Lennon said: "It was Jekyll-and-Hyde stuff from us. It means getting into the top six now is going to be a very tall order.

"We got off to a dream start but never took it on and I didn't expect what happened to happen.

"The way we took our foot off the pedal is the most disappointing thing about this defeat.

"I decided to try to freshen things up beforehand by making a few changes so maybe I've got to look at that aspect as well.

"We spoke before the game about how fired up Dundee would be as John Brown is a real motivator.

"But we let them back into the game when we shouldn't have which is our own fault."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
