    Could anyone actually identify any strategy that McKinnon deploys? I've played a lot of football, for a lot of different managers, and the vibe I get from watching us play is he is of the "just go out and play" variety. I can't back that up as I don't see what happens on the training ground, or in the dressing room, but if there is a strategy, I sure as shit can't see it. Maybe Thompson did, and was rejected, but if I'd been chairman when McNamara was punted, I'd have been begging Levein to give up his Director of Football gig at Hearts and return to the dugout. Whatever it would have cost, it would have been worth it. Oh for a manager that actually knows what he is doing!

    Same, though you lasted one season longer then me.

    I ain't calling for McKinnon to get sacked, but I can't honestly see him being around all that much longer. He's had money, he's had time, and we seem to be as shite as ever.

    What you don't expect when you tune into the latest PSG game on BT Sports is to see a former United keeper in the Metz goal keeping Neymar and Mbappe at bay.

    That was brutal. Fair enough, they got the job done professionally, but jeez that was dull.

    I wasn't at the game so couldn't comment as to what was needed, but of course flexibility is needed. Sticking two up top may have helped, it may have hindered. My point was merely that people seem to have a pathological obsession with the 442 formation, when there are often far more important factors to consider when attempting to win a football game.

    I am constantly bemused by these tactical geniuses that can never get their head beyond anything other than the holy 442.

    You look back at it, lovely run and strike that it is, it is also woeful defending from Motherwell.

    Watch MotD. He was involved in nearly every Liverpool attack. He'll do well there.

    In other news, Andy Robertson made his Liverpool debut today, and by all accounts was excellent, which is a handy excuse to put up a vid to reminisce on better times...

    This. They're not uber wealthy, and they're never going to make any money out of Dundee. Odd too that they want to spend millions on their own training facilities when the Council were willing to help them do it on the cheap. But we'll see.
  12. Dundee have done much the same thing recently, pulling out of the soon to be built Regional Sports Centre, complete with indoor pitch etc etc. Ostensibly it's because they claim they're going to build their own, along with a 17,000+ seater stadium on the Kingsway by Camperdown. Dundee United on the other hand, about eight years ago, realised St Andrews University already had state of the art facilities, and moved in there.

    It's all going to kick off now!
