  1. ICT v Dundee United

    3 games without a win plus the Twitter updates said Fyvie limped off at the end. It appears we're starting our process of imploding over the festive period a little early this year.
  2. ICT v Dundee United

    Think this will be a tight game. Hopefully Siegrist is fit again and back beTwixt the sticks
  3. Dundee United 2018/2019

    Facebook is a pretty depressing read as well. The "it's just a joke" argument is particularly undermined by the fact that in recent weeks there's been a flurry of racist incidents in Scottish and English football. For all the work done in the last couple of decades, racism never went away; it's just that people are feeling emboldened to express these sorts of views again. Robson's behaviour is just an example of it. If that Courier commentator's Nigerian friend does actually exist, he's probably unsurprised by this behaviour of a Dundee United player given what our team's name means in that country. Griezmann's behaviour isn't really any better, although it doesn't have the same- likely unintentional given it's Robson after all - sneering mockery that's implicit in Robson's costume, which clearly belittles the figure he's dressing as and reinforces stereotypes. Look at how Robson's bulging his eyes in his photo not unlike the way minstrels typically do. The more famous you are the more likely you are to avoid real punishment for this sort of behaviour; I don't think that's a particularly controversial statement. However, that doesn't make it alright. He may be young but this is the second serious incident with Robson in the space of a year, he's blown his chance. The fact he isn't playing and has been poor for over a year shouldn't come into it. We were endlessly tolerant to Goodwillie because he was an asset but he never ever learned.

    I'd probably agree with that. However I'm thinking that Robson has regressed enormously since our first championship season that Dixon would likely be an upgrade on him at this point. Having Dixon with actual wingers in front of him and a decent target man in Safranko up front to aim for might do better this time round. Then again that's probably just wishful thinking.

    I would have said Gunning, although it's immaterial now; as you've said, it's clearly Robson. Should United do the right thing and punt him asap, anyone keen on taking Dixon back? He's been training with the team lately but, according to Neilson, he wasn't being considered as a potential signing due to us having two left backs already. However, that could change very soon.

    That's not acceptable. The club should get rid of him.

    That's what I assume. That or a 4-2-3-1 with Curran as the number 10. Either way it's McMullan out on the wing and there'll presumably be less interchanging by the three attackers supporting Safranko. Our bench isn't particularly strong though. King and Smith are the only two attacking options, neither are overly reliable.
  8. Morton v Dundee United

    Expected changes made at the back for us. Murdoch and Frans in for Edgenguele and Watson. Curran in ahead of King too.

    Have Twinkle and Jim Spence ever been seen in the same room together?
  10. Morton v Dundee United

    He'd been playing surprisingly well until Friday by all accounts, but after that ordeal I wouldn't expect to see him on the pitch on Saturday unless Frans or Bouhenna suffer an injury.
  11. Morton v Dundee United

    And just to fully rip off Szammo's patter, it could also be a draw.
  12. Charlie Nicholas would be proud of any legible comeback tbf...
  13. Nah the Falkirk game from last season still stands as our ultimate nadir. That tonight isn't quite as bad as that result is probably the only positive to be taken from this.
