    Maybe he’s our lucky gonk? I’m as impressed by all the players going out as those coming in. If these guys can gel and show some grit and determination, we should be able to do this. Third time lucky.

    100% true. Sure, we’ve all been disappointed with the performances in some games, and after 90 minutes, we want to vent our frustration, but booing the f**k out of players after 5 minutes - give them a break eh?! We’ve got a brand new team here. Fair play to the new owners.

    I do wonder what the morale is like at the moment? Robbie has brought in all this “quality’ , the existing squad will have had their feathers ruffled - and confidence shot ? Calling them out publicly hasn’t helped either. Not as disastrous as last January but we’ve made no headway with results. Next 4 weeks crucial.

    The pain is still real.
  5. Dundee United v Dunfermline

    Nicky Clark do do do, do do do, do do do Nicky Clark do do do, do do do , do do do I’ll leave now .

    No, no no, GD, it’s was Shergar, he kidnapped.
  7. He’s certainly got no composure in front of goal based on the absolute sitter his missed but he offered us a more direct route and a different option second half. We were a different team with him player as we had plan B, rather than the long ball options we saw in the first half. He also seemed happy to get stuck in, so isn’t a pop star, despite the hair thing. On his own he’s not going to win us the league but if....if we can bring in a few more quality players he will be part of the solution, rather than part of the problem.

    What’s his form been like with the other clubs he owns? If he buys, gets bored quickly then asset strips, we have a problem. If he takes a long view, invests appropriately and supports the manager then we may have reasonable grounds for optimism. I also don’t buy the whole merger scheme. Depending on how much it costs to run Tannadice vs rent on a new ground that may be tempting, but that’s only if we don’t get promoted.

    Thank f**k he did ! Cheers for that btw. On the other topic we’ve had the arabtrust for years as the quasi official fan group with real involvement in the club. Think there would need to be an amalgamation of all the different groups to increase confidence in a fan investment scheme.

    Anyone goto the Monday evening event with Neilson ? Any chat from that?
  11. Next permanent Dundee United Manager.

    Yes, but is he more, or less fun than Hitler? Tough new recruitment criteria this time round

    The laszlo chapter in the “banter years” book closes in ignominy. Really thought he had the experience to do the business for us, but at no point in his tenure did it seem to click for him, with the old squad, his new squad this season, and in particular with the fans. Reminds me of Mixu in that it looked like he had a well thought out game plan in his mind, but was over complicated and too elaborate for the squad to deliver. A decent guy but wrong place, wrong time for him at United. Who next? Given how mentally weak our teams have been over that last few seasons, someone who is credible and the team believe in/ can get them believing in themselves is essential. Also someone who can get the team playing as a organised unit, where they all know what is expected of them, and can execute the basics. Neilson would be my pick, but ultimately some like like tommy wright would be ideal.

    A catastrophic defeat away to Falkirk would hasten his exit, but overall I recon it’ll be late October at the very earliest before Martin would push the button. He would be able to save face then , saving he earned to give him a chance with his new squad etc etc.
  14. Dundee United v Partick Thistle

    Missing this which I’m really disappointed about as it should be a cracker/astonishingly dull* (*delete as appropriate) If someone in the George Fox lower could consistently boo Spittal on my behalf if he starts that would be much appreciated.

    A solid defender? That sort of talk just won’t be accepted. We’re in the banter years mate, and we don’t do solid defending.
