The Dundee United Derby, Tues 11 Aug 2015


Recommended Posts

Looking forward to this. United seem to be taking a while to find our feet so far this season, while Dundee will have to ensure that all tears and tantrums in the post-Hearts-loss aftermath are put aside to have any chance of getting their title march back on track.

I'm plumping for a hard fought 2-1 derby victory, yet again to the men in tangerine. Spittal and Donaldson.

I'd take a draw right now tbh. If we lose, well...I can't think of anything worse. Maybe razor wire down the urethra...Maybe.

Think the Dee defence looks soft. But we are toothless up front. Their attack looks good, but, dare I say it, we are actually looking solid at the back.

Expecting another spicy game. Given how badly our players were being booted off the park by Hearts today, I wouldn't be surprised to see some more out with injury. Looking at the bench today we clearly have a serious lack of depth in this squad which worries me.

If we can get on to the park with close to our strongest 11, then I think we'll win and by a comfortable 2 or 3 goal margin. However, any more problems with injuries and we'll struggle, badly.

I'm expecting (praying) that it'll be a closer game than the last derby. In theory it should be. We were toothless in the final third in that game and couldn't therefore make the possession we enjoyed count. We are definitely more potent up front this season, of that there is no doubt.

I think we'll score at least 2, but then we did score 2 at New Year :(

Sadly I have to agree. Etxabeguren was a bit of a bombscare today and our full backs look a wee bit out of depth so far. Apart from that I think we have a stronger team and should be looking to win.

I was more concerned about Hartley having Holt camped at the half way line. He didn't have the pace to get back and if Hearts had scored that header into an open net first half it would've been Holts fault.

Has Granny Danger slipped off this mortal coil? :( he was always my favourite dab.

Think he's being politically active and spending his time doing more important things than P & B. Or he's discovered internet porn.

Either way, 1-0 United, BnBs in tears unable to comprehend how Hartleys swashbuckling maurarders came away with nothing.

Again.

Julen was absolutely solid first half, playing it out of defence etc, really impressed. Second half he was bad, but out of the two centre halfs, he was the better so picking him out is laughable.

Holt and McGinn out their depth? :lol: do you even watch the game?

The one thing I'll say against McGinn - he needs to strengthen. He was ragdolled by Juanma, but so was McPake.

Think Julen has Neil McGregor syndrome, just as you're thinking he's having a good game he does something laughably bad. His moment of madness yesterday was when he tried to play a simple pass to McPake, he inadvertently played Hearts almost through on goal. We were lucky not to be punished for it. I also don't fancy him up against strikers with a bit of pace to burn, but he looks well equipped to deal with some of the big haddies in this league.

I've just seen this, if you're going to publicly use my name on the forum, can you please not send me blubbering PM's like the big fucking wet towel that you are.

Thank you.
