I sincerely hope you're wrong but if not, good luck to him.

 

Of more interest to me is that levein leaves the building completely.

If true, i’ll be sceptical until he proves otherwise. If it doesn’t turn around under Terry, the whole clubs ****ed.

If this is true then it screams that Levein goes back to DOF and remains on the board, maintaining a say in first team matters. Totally unacceptable if true.

Even though everything has shown that when he was DoF he did not interfere with the first team management? I think Levein will go back to being there to help if the head coach needs but not interfering. 

 

McCann is a questionable one, Dundee role started well but fell away. Perhaps McCann will be there till the end of the season allowing the long term change behind the scenes over the season and ultimately allow for the right manager long term to be appointed in the summer.

If this is true this is incredibly disappointing. And I'd like to know who looked at him and thought he's the man to lead us to top 4. Or more pressingly who thought that he's the man to lead us out of the relegation zone.

Can't see this being true, what would be the point?  Be better just giving the job to one of our current coaches.

Big move, sort of big moves Ann Budge likes.

 

Happy if so. A young energetic manager, hopefully he can instill the same thing into our team

If Levein ain't Leving and going up stairs instead ,then we will need somebody who can work with him but strong enough to tell him no .

McCann might be capable of that .

Not really what I want and wont appease a large minority of the support ,but if it happens as ever gets my initial support .

I’ve been told this is true from several different sources that I trust, so it’s not just a facebook rumour. I didn’t think it would go down well with a lot of fans but the change is probably about to be made and he could do with our backing. I sincerely hope he gets it, although uniting the Hearts support is like farting against thunder just now. 

Levein going back to DoF role.

Absolute nightmare imo.  Your wish of unity is forlorn.  Two dreadful decisions if correct.

 

But if it comes to pass we can only hope it's successful, however unlikely.

I asked but never got an answer. Personally they can all go for me but the signing of Meshino might well save McPhee. Think the Daly and Fox experiment has failed miserably, though.

I genuinely think I'd prefer to give Levein a 20 year deal.

 

Totally uninspiring to say the least.

I hope this is not true.   Would probably mean Levein still as DoF, and the same backroom and coaching staff, so more of the same.  

 

Totally pointless move.

Wouldn’t be surprised - Strikes me as an intelligent guy from comments on radio - most probably be able to see the obvious changes needed in tactics and selection.

This Neil McCann thing won't go away 

 

I'd take him. I'd take anyone over Craig Levein 

 

Worth a punt 

 

He doesn't rate Sean Clare either

Didn't he get injured about 20 minutes after he returned to Hearts?

I would accept this, he at least tried to play attacking football at Dundee. Hopefully with better players at his disposal he can do the necessary.

McCann would be a massively underwhelming appointment. I also think it would be the wrong type of appointed, when we’re bottom of the league and lacking in confidence.

 

McCann has had a very short career and it would be a massive risk considering his time Dundee. 

 

Its disappointing in the extreme, that we would be unable  to do better than McCann. Whilst, the most concerning thing is the board think a unproven manager is the way to go when we are bottom of the league and barely won in a year. 

 

I’m struggling to understand what he has done that makes the club this appointment to turn us around, 

 

Whilst, CL remaining I think will result in the remaining of a hostile atmosphere. Rightly or wrongly.  

 

I don't think this will happen but very little would surprise me.

This would be a depressing appointment. I'm also going to be really controversial here. I don't like McCann's manner and can't bear listening to him.

Said last week. He’s the only “pundit” who has consistently refused to put the boot in about Levein. Terrible appointment if true. Family member has let the cat out of the bag apparently.

I think McCann comes over really well as a pundit and absolutely loved him as a player but as our new manager...JUST NO!

Wouldn't see it as a good appointment. For his sake, he shouldn't take it either. He'd be right up against and should it not work straight away he'd be hounded by the fans.

 

We need an experienced manager.

Lazy appointment that will see loser Levein slither back in to his 'DoF' role and **** all will change.

We've hired Neil mccann every 3 months or so since Cathro left and yet I've never seen him in the dugout. Weird.

Appointing McCann would be extremely uninspiring and I’d rather stick with Levein than “taking a punt” on McCann to be honest.

I am meeting with someone who knows McCann very very well this morning. I will ask if there's any substance to this rumour today and report back.
