  1. Queens v Dundee Utd

    First half was 47-53 in United’s favour, (if i recall correctly) and that’s how it ended according to the BBC.
  2. Falkirk v Dundee United

    Reckon it'll be another ground out by the odd goal win for the Terrors. If this turns out to be the case, then taking 6 points from 6 in the last 2 league games away from home on plastic should be enough to prove we are real contenders now. Here's hoping.

    Really positive stuff. Really think that playoffs are not a concern now, given our current position and the depth and quality of the squad. Also if we do end up in the playoffs we have a squad now able to have a good chance of getting up. 2nd as an absolute minimum must be the target . I think we are in with a proper shot of winning this now, as both Ayr and County are not winning every single week, like the Maureens did last year. We are winning g games with an unfit and brand new squad. What will we be like when we can replicate our first half performances for the second 45? Currently drinking from the cup of optimism. That's us fucked then......
  4. Queens v Dundee Utd

    That's the cross you have to bear having a fucking goal machine like that playing for you. Reckon he's worth it.....
  5. Queens v Dundee Utd

    Agree about the subs. Would have thought Smith and Nesbitt might have had some joy against a tired 10 men. That being said, Neilson clearly going fir the 3 points any way he can and must have been happy that 1-0 would so nicely. Which is how it turned out thankfully. Had Queens nicked an equaliser we would really be bemoaning a missed opportunity.
  6. Queens v Dundee Utd

    The plan was always to try to shitfest wins until our brand new team bed in and get match fit. A win's a fucking win, and that's 3 out of 3 since deadline day. That'll do nicely....
  7. Queens v Dundee Utd

    We're tangerine.

    Just as well we got all that fucking dosh then isn’t it...... Thank f**k you were here to point it out though. Tbf, it was the running of TBS’ sex dungeon that was sucking all the cash out of the club. (Allegedly). Now that this no longer in operation (allegedly), our club has been put on a far stronger financial footing, allowing us to sign a whole new team of Galacticos in January....

    Funny how things work out isn’t it. We made f**k all out of the team that won us the cup in 2010, yet made well over £10,000,000 in fees (transfer and sell ons) from the team that fucked it up 4 years later.... Back to Conway, after what he did in 2010, he left with my very best wishes, and I’m sure many Arabs feel likewise.

    I think Ralphie’s subtle sense of irony has been lost in the tidal wave of seethe and indignation his OP has created. I reckon he, as well as any other Arab with a pulse, knows that despite yet again having the biggest budget in the league, as well as a transfer window to die for, it is still well within United’s capabilities to royally f**k this up yet again, and that no amount of ironic bravado on P&B will ever change that. I’m sure he has enjoyed all your outrage tbf. I have always been of the more of an optimistic Arab, (albeit the last few years have done their fucking utmost to change that), and I will say that the 6/7 points we are behind County is not insurmountable. Ayr and County have dropped points all over the shop of late, (as of course have we), but as Robbie so eloquently put it on Sportsound today, the team that gets a winning run going will will the league. I did not feel before deadline day that we had a squad capable of that; I do now. Next week’s nothing game against St Mirren will be a good run out before the real test comes at Palmerston the following week, and I am hoping that Robbie is working the new lads half to death to get them match fit and playing together. If this team can gel quickly, I don’t see why we can’t win the league, and I do feel that depth of squad will be a key factor towards the end of the season, which may be Ayr’s undoing Whatever happens, I’m sure it will be more exciting than last season, with The Maureen’s having won it by March .
  12. St Mirren v Dundee United

    This game is an absolute free hit for both clubs and could not come at a better time.... For the following reasons. Both clubs have brought in pretty much a whole new squad in January. The timing of this game gives them 2 weeks to increase fitness, gel a little bit, with a full tempo match in the middle to try things out, and try to get closer to a good cohesive starting 11. The outcome is of no importance imo. If we win, good, it means we are on the right track and some potential for increased cash in the coffers. If we lose, then it spares us the risk of a demoralising pumping from the like of Celtic or (even worse) F.C Deadco in the next round. All that should matter to both cubs is maximising the chances of playing Premiership football next season.

    Of course we have the cash; - we borrowed it off the Dees. Don’t worry; if it doesn’t work out we can always pay them back 8p in the £.
  14. Sounds like a plan. Bring on #Frozengate
  15. Dundee United 2018/2019

    Not meaning to be a negative ninny but I wonder if the raft of new players coming in is also an insurance policy in terms if depth of squad, were automatic promotion be beyond us and we face a playoff situation again. At Accies our threadbare squad was running on fumes. With a squad like this, we could keep things a lot fresher if need be without a major reduction in quality. If need be.....
