  1. John Hughes or Steven Pressley. The choice is yours.
  2. Dundee United 2017/2018

    When Stephen Thompson took over he continued the plan of giving Craig Levein the freedom of Tannadice. Because Levein was professional and did things properly it meant that behind the scenes we were in a really strong place. Unfortunately he allowed McNamara to have the same influence and despite a decent start he, Donnelly and Jackson started taking the piss which left us in a total mess as Jackie burned bridges with a lot of good people and allowed the Campbell thing to get out of hand.
  3. So you acknowledge that Edge cleared the ball every time he was up against Quitongo? Don't care if it is a boot out the park or a punt up the pitch because for me, an ageing centre half who has no pace did a perfectly fine job against a young, quick attacker who on paper should be able to beat him on the ground every time.
  4. Quitongo was clearly injured for about an hour of yesterday's game but it was the poorest I've seen him. Despite all the pelters 'Edge' gets he had the better of him all game.
  5. Dunfermline Athletic vs Dundee United

    Massive game for both clubs, hopefully we bring a really good support (yesterday's win should help a little). This is the last league game before my first baby is due so it is the last away trip for me in a while and to be honest I couldn't be happier with it being Dunfermline. East End Park was my first away game as a United fan (in that fateful First Division season) and it is probably the ground I have visited most often as a an Arab (and sometimes as a Forfar fan too). A high scoring draw would be good enough for me, I think it isn't in the 'must win' category for either team and given Dunfermline's form a draw wouldn't be a total disaster. Steak bridies all round!
  6. No chance we didn't deserve to win that game today. I thought that despite the first half possession being fairly even we created so many more chances and the second half was pretty one-sided apart from Quitongo clean through and a couple of dangerous balls into the box after silly free kicks given away by us. The most pleasing thing about this afternoon was that we actually managed to put in a fairly positive performance. We created some chances, played at a decent pace for most of the game and we looked like a team who were willing to chase the ball at times too. Hopefully the Dumbarton and Falkirk type performances will be on the odd occasion and not the norm because I rather enjoyed the game today and the entertainment value was there. I thought Durnan was excellent, Fyvie very good and both McDonald and Keatings caused problems. Poor Jamie Robson, the boy is never really going to develop as a player. His confidence and decision making on the ball is absolutely dreadful. If he wasn't a rarity in a left footed fullback there would be no chance he would have made it as far as he has. United pulling out that type of win for those African children was a nice touch.

    Who are they? I think most fans on here recognise that Stephen Thompson has made a few errors when appointing managers and keeping managers for too long. That for me is his biggest failing (that and letting the youth system get totally ruined). The other issue about him "selling up" is a slightly different issue but again most fans are happy for some kind of change at boardroom level but would rightly need to be reassured as to who actually took over.

    In the league? Only two for wee Blair. TWO.
  9. Dundee United 2017/2018

    Not yet unfortunately. A point away to Falkirk buys him another week on paper regardless of how the fans feel. Morton at home and then Dunfermline away are the big ones now.
  10. You were saying? Safe to say the only winners today were the people like me who decided to body swerve this snoozefest.
  11. Dundee United 2017/2018

    Not winning games is one thing and drawing games is not always a bad but deary me we are so, so, so fucking boring that it's painful.
  12. Dundee United 2017/2018

    We have scored 5 goals in the league. FIVE.
  13. Both sets of fans secretly hoping the opposition score a dramatic late winner.
