    I wonder if that wee girl is the American investor Mike Martin is talking about. We've got to wait till shes 18 before she can buy us. Either that or Johnny Russell is going to be our first ever Player/Chairman. Plus, the words of Mike Martin are nowhere near as honourable as Jacksons. At least Jackson was pished before he gibbered complete garbage and didnt knowingly talk out of his arse.

    I thought since we won the last game it meant the Chairman was giving Csaba till 2027 to turn it round. Hopefully the takeover will have happened by then.
  3. Dundee United v Partick Thistle

    If we punt the Hungarian Howler we have a good chance of going up. Untill then we will remain playoff fodder. And that could be at either end of the table.

    Erskine was exceptionally meh. And imo had plenty of time to make an impact and in a good team. Was actually a decent finisher and had a decent eye for a pass but showed it nowhere nearly enough and was always utterly knackered by 10 mins into the second half. Then would do the disappearing act. Blair Spittal was like Erskine without the eye for a pass or the finishing. But what he lacked in effort, fight and drive he made up in his hide and seek abilities. Saying that, expect a goal from each of them next week.

    In that case, gtf personally

    I get your overall point. Im not trying to be unreasonable, but who decides if the proposed change is reasonable or unreasonable? What i think may be unreasonable someone else may find reasonable. Its all about opinions. The 25 mile rule imo is unreasonable to existing employees but United seem to think its reasonable. Some players have agreed to it and some havent as they have mortgages and families and i can understand that. Its unreasonable for United to ask them to relocatefor a reasonably short period of time. Id be telling the HR jobber to gtf personally.

    But that should be up to the manager to say when signing the player "you must report to training every day" and if they cant commit to that then they shouldnt be signed by the manager. Thanks Raymie. Weve had players in the past who have lived in Glasgow or Edinburgh and done well for us and been part of a successful team. All this rule does is, as you say, limit the player pool we have to pick from. Which is fucking lunacy imo. The Cammy Bell thing was him wanting away because he more or less got fed up driving so far. But i still say that anyone with a semi functioning brain would have thought about that before signing for a team so far from home. Or just deal with it till you find a new club.

    So a contract can be broken by an employer if they like, as long as its reasonable to break the agreement? Even if the employee the contract is there to protect disagrees? But the employee cant contest this new term as they will be dismissed for being unreasonable? But the contract is to protect the employee? <insert famous Mixu quote> Also, whats this new Patreon malarkey about? Seems a bit pointless and more guff from Mike Martin. How about instead of asking these high profile non-investors to appear for a free lunch at Tannadice when they have nothing better to do - you sack Laszlo and appoint a football manager?

    Doubt it. Keatings has a contract with United and has done since the start of last season. It runs till the end of this season. It dosent have a "25 mile" rule in it by the sounds of it. All he has to do is fulfill his side of the agreement made in his existing contract. If United want to change it then they have to offer him a new contract with a 25 mile rule clause added. He can turn it down and is entitled to if he dosent agree with it and see out his current contract which looks like whats going to happen. Its not breaching his terms of employment imo. Keatings isnt doing anything wrong. I dont really like the rule personally and it hasnt hindered us in the past with the likes of Gauld who lived in Stonehaven i think? Levien and Houston lived out with the 25 mile rule and they did ok. Does Laszlo not live in Edinburgh too?Just a gimmik from said donkey of a manager and the fud of a chairman. Will cause far more problems with recruitment than it will solve imho. Could you imagine if we did this after Keatings was our best player and had scored 35 goals last season and wouldnt relocate? The club would look even more stupid by forcing him out.

    So if you have a legally agreed contract and a new boss wants to change it without your consent he can push through said change? For less that 12 months? Whats the point in a contract in that case? I can understand them having it in new contracts but an existing agreement wont easily change. Dont think the club would want the players union involved and the publicity circus etc which would no doubt happen.
  11. Dundee United 2018/2019

    Im pretty sure you cant change details of a contract of employment unless both parties agree to it and a new contract is signed. And unions can get involved etc. In this case Keatings wouldnt have to worry about the 25 mile rule as the law would be in his favour i imagine. New players would have this in a contract of employment and would have to agree to the 25 mile rule as part of the contract when signing - or sign for someone else. Also, someone a post or two ago referred to depression as a disease Its not a disease. Its a mental health illness. Its not something you can catch or pass on from someone or something. Its basically something that happens to the way your brain works. Its symptoms can be helped but not cured by medication i believe. Not having a go, just being pedantic ETA this is the way its been explained to me by a close friend who has struggled with depression for the last few years. And Keatings can leave as far as im concerned. Just dont think hes all that. Hes never impressed me in the very few games hes featured in. May work out somewhere else but its not going to happen at United for alot of reasons. Ship out. And McMullan and Scobbie are guff so they can bolt with him.
  12. Dundee United 2018/2019

    Ours will be empty after the third goal is conceded imo.
  13. Dundee United 2018/2019

    TBQOAHWY (To Be Quite Open And Honest With You) i think Keatings and McMullan have been the sort of players that sum up our time in the Championship. Toothless, no real drive or cutting edge and just all round not very good. Keatings has done next to nothing for us and has been really dissapointing. McMullan cant cross a road and can barely beat a man. Will both be on decent money, especially Keatings. Would be quite happy for them both to go. Wont really be missed.
  14. Queens v Dundee United

    Honest to f**k. If Laszlo isnt sacked after another shite performance im never going back to Tannadice again. Stupid line-up, shite tactics and the players are fucking usele....wait what? We won? Fucking hell, QOTS you guys must have been fucking shite if we beat you today. In all seriousness i dont know how to feel. Over the moon we won but i cant help but feel that means Laszlo will be here dining out on that win for a few more months even if this is a one off victory. If hes finally turning it around then great but i have my doubts.

    He might even burst into a power walk to get his half time pehs.
