McCulloch seems to have a lot of haters amongst our support (sevco connections the undoubted reason) but in a recent interview with Safranko big Pav was praising the work that McCulloch had done with him saying he was learning a lot and that is far more important for me than McCullochs past.

Looking forward to Pav diving against Stirling Albion and elbowing people with no consequences tbh.

Surely we'd get a free kick for the Stirling Albion players head getting in the way of his elbow?

yes, so no doubt ayr will win on Friday and we’ll put in a laszlo-esque performance on Saturday and will end up sweating over 2nd again.

Belief is a fucking dangerous thing, right up there with hope and desperation.

Nope, I have resigned myself to agonising defeat in the playoffs.

Anything else is a bonus......

Ah... belief.  Allow me a minute to reminisce about a time I genuinely believed in DUFC.

It was August 2003.  A sunny day, if memory serves.   I'm walking to Tannadice for the first game of the season, the week after watching as we swept Everton aside in a pre-season friendly.  We had Ian McCall in charge (the hottest property in Scottish football) and had signed Collin Samuel (having reportedly fought off interest from England), Barry Robson (ICT's best player, I was assured), Scott Paterson (the commanding centre-back we so desperately needed), Mark Kerr (and, if Championship Manager at that time was anything to go by, he would be off to Real Madrid soon), and Derek McInnes (from the English Premier League, no less...)  and I genuinely believed we had the squad to split the Old Firm.  We dominated the first half.  Took the lead,  just after the hour mark, with a great finish by Collin Samuel.  So far so good.

Fast forward to the final whistle, and we have lost 2-1, Barry Robson has been red carded and my belief severely dented.  Our next 3 games?  Losses to Celtic, Heart and Rangers for a cumulative 11-1.  Belief gone.

Belief in DUFC is a cruel, cruel mistress.  Stay well away.

Until it is mathematically impossible for Ayr or ICT to catch us, I'll expect us to finish 4th.

No I think we will still have the same shite pies next season.

I haven't believed since I thought we would steam roller Mypa 47.  

If only all our European competition could be CE Principat (sadly now deceased).

“Was in today renewing mine. Incase anyone hasn't read it you will get a card for next season instead of the traditional book. There will be stewards standing at turnstiles with hand held scanners for next season. The following season there will be new turnstiles.
The cards can be added to for cup games. So if you want to go to a league cup game for example you go online and add it to your season card then just scan in on matchday.”

Stole this from tek towers, sounds really good

Apropos of nothing.  The ‘keep, punt, undecided’ thread, whilst amusing, ignores a key issue.  In this respect I’ll limit my remarks to United.

What is far more important than the abilities of individual players is are these players the best fit for the system the manager wants to play?

I think Safranko has been excellent this season but he’s really not a lone striker.  Equally Nicky Clark has done his best but he’s not a No 10.

I would far rather that the manager for next season (whoever it is) decides what formation he/she/they wants to play and keeps or brings in the players who compliment that formation.

About bloody time United did this, quite frankly.

I heard they started life again in the Andorran 4th tier, they've been working their way up leagues. I'm sure I'm not confusing this with another team that United have hammered.
