Best option with Sow at the moment is bringing him on with 20-25 to go to hold the ball up. Games slow down by that point and he may be gifted some opportunities.

Until next season we should go with Pav and Clark. After a good pre season I think Sow will be good for us.

Agree with the points made about Sow. There's definitely a very decent Scot Prem level player there. A good pre season and some goals early doors will do wonders for him regardless of which league United are in next season. 

Tbh to have 3 strikers of different types at the club of the level we've got, we should be scoring more it's as others have said the more overly defensive tactics used by Neilson that is hindering the team a bit. 

Still though, after the last few managers we can't complain about improvement so much and I think Neilson deserves a bit more praise for what he's done. Aye there's better out there but fans of United need to be a bit more realistic about the level the team is operating at all things told.

Thought Sow was decent last night and had the beating of Donaldson for the most part, particularly in the first half. 

Neilson is a very cautious and defensive oriented manager, possibly stemming from the fact he was a defender himself.

He sets us up well and letting the ICT centre backs have the ball a lot in the first half was actually quite a good strategy as they have no ball playing quality there so were liable to just boot the ball straight out the park a lot of the time.

He makes us hard to beat which is reflected in the fact we only lost two league games after the January window shut but I think in the second half we probably had the chance to go for it a bit more and try to kill the tie off.

I’m slightly worried that he might set us up too defensively on Friday when a goal in the first 10/15 minutes would almost definitely put it to bed, especially if key players are going to be missing. 

 

Even then one was the meaningless final game at Morton where neither team had anything to play for and changes was made to the line up as a result.

It was three games, tbf. Partick, Queens and then that final game at Morton.

Wanted to forget that Queens game at Tannadice, their first win in eight games as well how embarrassing.

If we hadn't lost that game, Falkirk wouldn't have been relegated automatically.

It was definitely for the greater good

Sorry, that’s my bad. 

Even though I was there I’d erased the memory of the Morton game.

That's nice. Thanks.

Frazer Wright sleeps in an underpass with the Scottish cup under his arm.

Might go and share a can with that beautiful man.

You might want to get two cans. Not casting aspersions but I wouldn't drink from the same can as Wright.

A wee reminder that it’s been 5 years since Stevie May was good

Good point; however just getting in first before anybody else does, to note that in saying that,  we are also well aware that it has also been 5 years since we were any good.:blink:
