Manager's Programme Notes

We could hardly have asked for a more attractive start to the League programme than a visit from Hibs. The Easter Road club have been one of the big successes of the League Cup and they really underlined their challenge with a great display against Aberdeen in mid-week.

Of course we have every reason to be confident ourselves as I consider our own game with Celtic was one of the finest at Tannadice for some time. While victory was snatched from us by a matter of seconds we were not too upset as the entertainment value was first class and we still finished unbeaten in the section.

Three points were taken from Parkhead, Tynecastle and a home
game with Celtic and at any time this gives grounds for confidence for the future.

Naturally it is disappointing to be eliminated from a cup competition but we are now doubly determined to start the championship in style and then make progress in the Fairs Cup later in the month.

In mid-week I had the pleasure of meeting officials from the Grasshoppers club and on Wednesday I will take the opportunity to see our opponents in action in a League game with Young Boys of Berne in the Hardstrum Stadium in Zurich. Along with Doug Cowie I will then complete arrangements for our visit on September 30th.

Our visitors today are also involved in the Fairs tournament and they are scheduled to face the Swedish side Malmo around the same time. The coming week could also be an important one for Jim Henry who was listed
in the League pool for the first representative game of the season at Parkhead next Wednesday.

Since coming into the side last season Jim has made fantastic progress and
in my view he was one of the outstanding players on view against Celtic. We, at Tannadice, are delighted he has been recognised and we all hope he finds a place in the final selection.
