Honest O’Dea likes McIntyre’s blame game
DARREN O’DEA has revealed how Jim McIntyre’s new regime of ‘accountability’ can help save Dundee’s season.
O’Dea spoke out on the eve of today’s crucial clash with fellow strugglers St Mirren where victory at Dens Park would see them move off the dreaded foot of the Premiership table.
McIntyre replaced former manager Neil McCann last month and has endured a tough start by losing his four games at the helm without seeing his side score a single goal.
But former Celtic and Republic of Ireland defender O’Dea is convinced McIntyre’s methods will pay dividends in the long-run.
O’Dea said: “He’s stretched the tempo of our play and the energy within the team, and the accountability for both on and off the ball.
“Each player is accountable for certain jobs within the team. It’s very clear within the dressing room what your job is. So if there’s a problem or a mistake then it’s quite clear where the finger should be pointed.
“That’s what we need now. We need accountability revisits.
“There’s no point hiding behind things.”
