The Dundee United Derby, Tues 11 Aug 2015

Recommended Posts

The one thing that shouldn't be overlooked here is how fucking shite James McPake is at his job, and how that Cretinous liability Thomson still plays professional football. Important things to take from this imho.

Do you live to hate Hibs and anything Hibs related? You're quite entitled to be like that, but it might be better to get a life.

What's it got to do with hibs?

Plenty hope for the season after that second half display, the kids look raw, but there is talent in the squad, bit of experience and we'd maybe have seen the game out. On the balance of play Dundee deserved a point, feels like a loss with the last kick of the ball though.

Are these Hearts posters just Vikington?

The shite patter is identical.

Hats off. That was terrific entertainment. Full house, great atmopshere, blood and thunder, some lovely football, an ex-Spider putting in a MOTM performance, a last minute equaliser after being 2-0 down. We should talk our game up far, far more than we do. Absolutely delighted to see wee Blair Spittal putting in such a great performance for United.

Good game I suppose

Hard though it is to take late goals like that, you have to admit it was better than good and actually a cracking derby. Dundee were excellent first half, United equally so for most of the second. Plenty blood and guts shit, good football and loads of goalmouth action.

That Scott Bain save just before the equalizer though. Stunning.

Unbelievable.

Should probably have been 2 or 3 up before half time but the story of the season so far is not taking chances (unless the team we're playing is so utterly shit, like Kilmarnock).

We completely fell out of it at 2-0 down but somehow managed to keep it together enough to level it up. Absolute SCENES at the end.

It was entertaining but it just made me even more confident that neither of these teams will be much of a threat to us this season.

Your balanced comments about James McPake and Kevin Thomson? I believe that they both played for Hibs at one point in their careers.

It was absolutely mental.

Few folk seriously injured after that. :lol:

Got to add my tuppence worth after that. Great game for a start. Dundee def had better of first half but again couldn't get the goals they prob deserved. Utd much better after subs as Connolly in particular was anonymous. Game should have been done at 2-0 but the inexperience was there for all to see. Cracking goal from Stewart. Poor from Zwick at equaliser after decent game till that point. Slightly deflated but fair play to ye funsters, prob a fair result. Lets all look forward to dens for next 1. ;-)

Well, obvz the Dundee fans are going to be the far happier with that. I said with a few minutes to go, as some Dundee fans started leaving, that I don't understand why they do that - you miss the very best moments when you do, and so it transpired.

I'm fairly content - we're a work in progress, and Spittal is really starting to show what I thought he could.

We threw it away, but then most 99% of the teams in the world crap it when they lose half their lead with ten minutes to go, and Dundee got the lucky break.

They both did but that shouldn't save them from the truth about what they are.

After the first half performance I said I'd take a point. We were out played comprehensively for the first 45, but the team dug in which was a much better effort than the Aberdeen game. Lots of positives about that performance,. You can see the young lads have got something about them , and what a great effort from spittal. Quite a few naive mistakes which hopefully they will learn from. We'll see a lot more from bodul - still not match fit but held the ball up well. Fraser did well and had some decent touches. There were good passages of play from United which gives me much more confidence for the rest of the season.

Really entertaining game and great atmosphere.

Best derby in Scotland.

FTD
