    Sheffield Wednesday just got Connor Wickham on loan from Crystal Palace, which allows Wednesday to release Jordan Rhodes to Celtic, which allows them to release Bayo to St Mirren which means... Mullen's comin', baby!

    Watch those dominoes fall beautifully.

    ūüėā¬†Nobody should be that excited about signing Mullen.¬†

    Fair play to the owners again though. Throwing a lot of money at it. Would that be 6 in and 2 out?

    I blame agent more than anything but I would have thought that Banks would have taken note of the failure of Scott Allan at WBA and look to get himself more game time up here before moving south.

    No danger of seeing him anywhere near the  Palace first team anytime soon if at all.

    Agree with that but hes not going down there to be near the first team anytime soon. He will get better coaching I'm sure and learn from the likes of Zaha , Townsend etc.¬† He thinks thats a better route for him than playing 50-100 games for United before moving on. Bit frustrating as it would have been good to see him develop but its his career and he only gets one go at it and may have never got the chance to move to a premiership team again.¬† We¬†get about 300k plus a possible add on and hey thats more than dundee got for Kane Hemmings at his peak.ūüėČ

    Two new signings by the end of the week. Cammy Smith to Dundalk will be 90% likely to be sealed by Friday too. 

    Would almost rather we didnt sign anyone now till the summer. With the league all but won would like to see Sporle , Glass and Appere get plenty of minutes. The squad is more than big enough to see us through till the end of the season and there will be far more players available then. 

    The two new signings from the same source as the Everton bid?¬†ūüėČ

    It doesn't when you're trying to paint him as a striker who scores regardless of form.

    We lost to County, but our left back scored a penalty, should I be boasting about how great a striker he is that he can score when hes not creating chances for himself?

    He also won the header to assist for the second.  8 goals and 2 assists  in 4 games with only 1 pen in that. 

  5. Didnt think Utd were as bad as folk were saying first half. Distribution from Connolly/Reynolds was poor though and we had a lot of possession and weren't too far away but it kept breaking down with McMullan.  Nicky Clark contributes nothing on the left. Would far prefer a Pawlett or Smith who with Robson bombing on can move inside and help the midfield two and still link up with the strikers.

    Much better second half though and a deserved win in the end.  McMullan came into the game, Appere and Robson linked up well, Pawlett offered more in 20 mins than Clark did whole game and Shankland was the difference again.  Still plenty of room to improve but an important 3 points. 



  6. Hughes would probably be my least preferred option out of Wright, Irvine, Mixu and McCall. Inherited a successful side at ICT and fair play to him for keeping run going but didnt have to rebuild. Had a tough job at Hartlepool who were struggling and didn't manage to turn them round although they were in a really bad place.

    Would prefer someone with proven record of coming in and shaking things up.

    On the plus side if he was to come and do well I cant see their being a rush for him. :rolleyes:

  7. There isn't mate.

    I did a thread last season about a Dundee/Utd XI. You had Armstrong, GMS, Fojut, ciftci, cierzniak etc at the time and we still had letheren in goal etc.

    It was predominantly Utd players.

    If I did a thread now, and if I'm bored I might, I can think of 2 or 3 tops that would be Utd players.

    We have improved marginally from last season but utds squad has regressed so much that the main reason for this shift is more your decline than our improvement.

    Aye its all opinions. I dont think Utd players have regressed as much as you think. I would put it down more to JMac and his inability to organise, continual tinkering and not having a clue what his best team/formation was. Not arguing that Dundee for the first time in a while have a number of players who would get in the United side and it may well be half and half for me and possibly edge it. I also think Dundee have a really good squad now though and should be looking at 4th or 5th.

    Should be an interesting day anyway.

  8. I am obviously in the minority that still thinks this as there is an absolute shit load of pessimism around tannadice these days but the squad that whoever inherits is nowhere near as bad as is being made out. McNamara had recruited way too many players of dubious quality and had completely lost the plot by the end but there is still a good solid squad in there. Just needs someone to come in and get them organised and fighting again.

    If that's to be Wright so be it. Wouldn't be too upset if he didn't come. He is playing it very well and his main concern looks to be getting himself a new far more lucrative contract out of Brown. I'd be happy with Mixu or Alan Irvine.

    The sooner the better though.

  9. i imagine theres been absolutely shit tonnes put on Wright over the last 24 hours, no wonder his odds are like that

    The books dont take 'shit tonnes' on these markets. They are very small interest only markets and a tenner on an outsider or 50 quid (if your lucky to get that much accepted) on a favourite will see their price be slashed. Also if you are in the know and get a decent price your account will all but be closed when they pay out.

    They don't have inside knowledge and he is only that price as United have made it clear they are interested in speaking to him.

    Dont think Wright will come. The Helsinki Flash to be unveiled to the worlds press on Weds is my call.

  10. I've not actually got that big of a problem with this. Lots of clubs are doing the same thing now with regards to cash and ticket gates (I had been told it was a policing issue in terms of unknown numbers in certain stands), plus we it saves any issues with queues around the ground at a number of the turnstiles (something many of us have moaned at United for in the past). Still, for a game like tonight it would be easy enough to organise more cash turnstiles.

    More cash turnstiles is always good but there will be hardly anyone there so just the ones in the GF being open would be fine. Keep JK closed. Having 3k possibly? fans in 3 different stands from an atmosphere point of view is crazy. Policing worry line is bollocks from the club. The GF would be at the very most half full and if they really are concerned about having too many bodies turning up to fill GF they are even more deluded than I thought.
