Dundee United vs Queen of the South

211 posts in this topic

Week 2 sees Queens fresh off dispatching Brechin without our lord and saviour Stephen Dobbie and playing rush keeper for most of the game make the trip to Tannadice to face the pre season promotion favourites Dundee United. Last season Queens remained unbeaten in the City of Discovery having drew 1-1 on the opening day and an entertaining 3-3 game in January.  The five games last season all featured high scoring encounters on account of neither side knowing how to defend whatsoever.

Key areas of discussion

  • Will Dobbie back be sufficiently rested enough to carry this mob for this game?  
  • Is Lee Robinson back from the wilderness to replace Alan Martin, will he be bothered or will he phone it in to spite Naysmith.?
  • Can Lyndon 'The Bogan Batistuta' Dykes continue smiting the haters with another goal?
  • How stodgy are we going to set up here?
  • Will 'Besty' comment on this match thread at all?

We had a decent record in the League against United last season with 1 win, 2 draws (both at Tannadice) and 1 defeat.

Would be very happy with an away draw again.

If we include the Diddy cup game then certainly both teams scored in all 5 fixtures last season.

0-0 it is then. :thumsup2

We haven't conceded a goal in the league yet this season, so your negativity surprises me tbh.

With Queens missing their first choice 'keeper and Dobbie expected to be off to Motherwell before next weekend this is a game we really need to be winning comfortably.

Swap deal for McFadden?

Think we should try to negotiate it up to 2 bob and a doughnut.

Any chance of the excellent match previews returning to the OS for this one?

Lots of debate on Queens' keeper for this One.

It's a call that only the coaching staff can make really. If he's at all ready, Leighfield should be given a chance. We may just unearth a gem in a game that we are quite likely to lose anyway.

Some fans saying there's nothing to lose but if we take emotion out of the decision that isn't really true is it?

Play a young keeper who definitely isn't ready and it could destroy him if things get ugly. Is it fair to do that to a young lad who's only been in the first team squad for a very short time?

If in doubt I'd give him a shot, but if he feels he's definitely not ready he should bring in an emergency loan. Robinson won't feature.

Would be happy to gain another draw  . Mcmullan  has started well and Keatings usually scores against us . The " other " Murray looks a player as well . Think we will line up 4-5-1 . Hope Martin & Dobbie are fit . Would gladly take the draw .

I think Robinson will be desperate to prove a few people wrong so my money is on him to come back in and play a blinder!

Irrespective of who's in goal and fit up front I'd take a point right now.
