Dundee Utd vs St Mirren

154 posts in this topic

Tannadice certainly hasn't been a happy hunting ground for us in recent years, we've lost our last 5 games there and that run of defeats goes back to 2012.  Could really do with ending that tomorrow, another loss and there's a good chance we will end the day in 9th.

Just looking at our last fixture up there on Christmas Eve, Dundee Utd were top of the league at the half way stage after beating us that day, two points clear of Hibs.  Season's fair went to shit for them since then.

Still though, have to make them favourites for tomorrows game.  They're at home, they beat us at neutral venue a few weeks back.  In saying that we have Cammy Smith available tomorrow and we missed him badly in that mickey mouse cup final.  Hope he starts up beside big John.  Will get my optimistic hat on and go for... 1-1.  Lets hope QOTS and Morton do the business tomorrow and then all eyes on the Raith showdown next week,

Me too, I think that all of my all time favourites are Scandinavian. Siggi Jonsson is number one, then Pedersen, Kalvenes and of course Dillon(sson).

 

I loved wee Erik, possibly my favourite all time United player.  Sean and Dillon are both stupid names btw.

I want us to win tomorrow, more than that I'd love to see us playing some decent football.

It is going to be either Siggi or Erik anyway.

Slightly offended that you missed out big Lars. Back in the day we expected him to fire in a 35 yarder every game, because he did it once.

Is there a Dundee United TV that you can watch this on from 'overseas'?

Edited to add... just used the wonder of the internet to find out it's on ArabZone :D!

Allardice and Robson keep their places, disappointed with the first and really annoyed by the second.  At least Toshney has been binned, doesn't even look like he's on the bench.

HT 1-1

Certainly interesting enough game.

The United goal was certainly on the controversial side. First Jack Baird goes up for a header and gets a head knock which subsequently needs bandaged. Play on. Then Gary McKenzie is kicked off the ball. Play on, goal.

We came back into it well and probably deserved the equaliser. That old Mallan cross McKenzie header partnership baring fruit again.

A point here is a good point, as long as Dumbarton don't win. Sadly they are winning, so we need to win.

All to play for.

That's got to be one of the worst refereeing decisions I've seen in a long time to allow two blatant fouls in the build up. One leaving one centre half nursing a burst head and one buckled over following a straight hoof into the midriff. 

Absolutely carnage in the wake of that goal but all things considered, we've been the better side. A win here is looking more and more vital with an eye elsewhere.

The ref has had an absolute shambles here. Definitely have the feeling he will send someone off or award a dodgy penalty.

As expected St.Mirren have the better footballing team. We've shitfested the first 45 and will continue on into the second half.

A St.Mirren victory is on the cards.

Delighted with the win though undeserved.  Couldn't believe the referee not giving a foul in the run up to our first goal, just one of many awful decisions by him.

We played almost no football again though fair play to McKinnon for going to 4-4-2 at half time recognising that we had more chance of capitalising on the hoofball with that formation.

Thought St Mirren played some decent football and brought through a decent support.  Thought their players turned a bit dicklike as the game progressed but they may have been feeling frustrated.

Sickener. Think we deserved at least a point over the piece, but theme the breaks.

It's no real surprise we have lost at Tannadice. We have a nightmare run in and we were always going to struggle to pick up points in the last 4 games. Proclamations of imminent safety from all and sundry were premature, it clearly remains quite likely that we will be relegated.

Thought we needed 5 points from our last 3 games to stay up. Well we have 2 left now, we can't get 5 so we are going to need 6.

You won't finish bottom.

And if you finish 2nd bottom, you will have too much for a League1 side. 

See you next season (ie I hope WE don't finish in the bottom 2)

We are 2 points from bottom and we go to Easter Road on the last day. Wish I had your certainty.

Also if we do finish 9th we will need to have too much for 2 league 1 sides.
