  1. I'm now revising my guess to Jamie Buchan. Getty images have him listed in this photo... Even though I also think this might be Danny Griffin... Edit again for Jamie Buchan... Skinheads aplenty. But it is actually Derek Lilley.
  2. I'm fairly certain that's Danny Griffin.

    I'm disappointed that United have responded to Levein. Given the current mood amongst the fans and the need for as much positivity at the club as possible it was an ill advised piece of bad/unnecessary PR for the club. Levein is revelling in his current role as pantomime villain/banter merchant so he feels like he can say what he wants, when he wants but United should have just ignored it.
  4. In honour of Ray; Utd v Morton

    I would argue about the clear cut chances. Curran had a terrible miss in the first half and Scully made a great save from Safranko but beyond that we had a few half chances and a couple of moments but nothing too clear cut. My issue is that we are not improving, there is nothing about the way we play football under Laszlo that suggests we are capable of winning the league and that is what we have to do this year. In isolation yesterday wasn't the worst performance under the manager but when you link it to an abject performance at Alloa and others like it you cannot continue to put in such mediocre performances in a league like this. My belief is that if we stick with Laszlo we end up in 4th or similar. We cannot afford to sleepwalk through another season. The board promised to build a team capable of winning the league and that will not happen under Laszlo.

    These are my thoughts from yesterday (here). Essentially it reads "f**k off Laszlo".
  6. FIFA 19

    Every year I claim I'm done and yet every year I get sucked back in. Pre-ordered last night with the 10% discount via FIFA 18 and because I had a PS Store voucher. Ended up going for the Ultimate edition purely because I won't have as much time to play it this year and I would like the additional packs to help me build up my club for SBCs etc.

    He's already thrown his toys out the pram too. Had a right go at some fans at Alloa and then again in the papers the day after. Fans "don't understand" how hard it is apparently. I was worried he would be a shite, defensive Scott Fraser and so far that is exactly how he has performed.
  8. In honour of Ray; Utd v Morton

    Realistically Morton have little chance today as they will swept aside by the wave of positivity in Dundee. If United can properly utilise the V&A effect then I can see us now going the rest of the season unbeaten.
  9. The City of Dundee Appreciation Thread

    Brilliant stuff last night. Dundee is a fantastic place and it is getting better all the time. Two shite football teams but hopefully that can be rectified as soon as possible...

    I agree with GD, the problem, I think, is the personnel rather than system. We've used different systems but we have the same mental weakness regardless.
  11. Dundee United 2018/2019

    In my opinion there are not six defensive players there. After the 3 central defenders the wings-backs can do both, we have Stanton who is box-to-box, Loemba who is a very attacking player and two strikers. I'd like to think the main goal threat would be that front three and with all of our central defenders being very tall then set-pieces would play a big role in that. The only player that might be out of position slightly would be Aird but it is hardly 'shoehorning' him into a role if he has played there at numerous different stages in his career (feel free to Google 'Fraser Aird wing-back' or 'right-back'). Finally the best football we have played this year was for a very good 45 minute spell against Queen of the South in Dumfries. We played a 5-3-2.
  12. Dundee United 2018/2019

    Fully fit this is how I would like things to be... That would still leave Barton and Rabistch as cover in the middle with McMullan, King and Curran as cover further forward. Wardrop and Robson as backups for the flanks but we would still be a little light in the middle of the defence (Edge and Murdoch).

    Here's hoping...

    Initially Laszlo said five or six weeks I think. Doubt he will make the Morton or Falkirk games but maybe the Ross County one at home.
  15. New kits for 18/19

    This year's kit is terrible in comparison to previous seasons which is a real shame. As a collector of 1860 stuff I will not be buying it this time around. My favourites have been... Bonus points for the last one given the picture...
