Any particular links to these matches would be great. When he has played for us, hes been either bang average or anonymous which is a shame as i had high hopes for him

 

Regardless of the results our best performances this season has been when we’ve played a genuine two up top.

When Pawlett is available Neilson invariably ditches that formation.

We shouldn’t be setting up the team to suit the limited contribution of a single player.

Remember the opening 45 minutes against Morton after we made all of the January signings last year? It was the most impressive half of football in a long time and I thought that Pawlett (and others) were all going to be amazing for us.

I have seen Pawlett look very good in short bursts and he often has a moment or two in each game that makes you realise he has ability, but for most of the time he has been bit of a passenger and unfortunately unfit/injured.

Pawlett has plenty of technical ability but up to now he hasn't looked physically or mentally tough enough to make a real difference for us. Too prone to injury and too prone to going missing during difficult moments. He might still come good but he has a lot to prove imo.

I'm not sure there's much wrong with Pawlett other than he's a crock. His contributions haven't been great - a few flashes aside - but that's what you'd expect from a guy who hasn't been fit for more than a couple of weeks at a time.

Not quite true as he was really good in the 6-2 game.

Any Dundee United fans heard rumours about Cammy smith moving to Firhill?

He hasn't had much of a chance at United but when he has he's been very poor. I can think of maybe two/three decent games over both spells at the club (including a hat trick against Partick in the League Cup). Soft and meek. It'll be a relief for everyone concerned when he leaves.

It is building momentum on social media. My Dad did see him and (he assumed) his agent meet with Stevie Crawford in the Hilton in Dundee last week, so we are definitely trying to move him on.

Shame as he has ability but he is posted missing most games he actually gets a chance.

What chances?

Has he started more than 1 game this season?

Dont rate him myself. No pace and too timid for me. One decent 45 minutes in his 1st spell is all I've seen from him

Can't say I will miss him. Agree with a few points above about him being too timid/meek.

Good luck to the laddie though.

Our bench looked really light on Saturday and we’ve had two subsequent injuries.  If Smith goes I hope we are going to bring in a replacement to give us options.

Pawlett for me is an enigma. He is technically good and for me a damn good player.

BUT after a few games last season he got injured. He was rushed back to try and get us 1st place. He looked off the pace and as far as I am concerned was detrimental to the team and to Pawlett himself. He was taking injections to get through games.  This led to him missing the start of preseason.

I thought he was good in the 6-2 game and possibly getting back to what we were expecting & what he is capable of showing, and then another injury.  If he can get and stay fit then I feel he can be a good player for us.

How much of the "must play" at the end of last season,rather than getting him fit has contributed to this season's performances and injuries?

According to another forum, we have two Americans on trial, one being Dillon Power. Seemingly a few others too.

There are so many jokes I can make about ‘Americans on trial’ but I will resist the temptation.

ETA whilst we may need a few additions to see us over the line I can also see potential drawbacks with introducing too many new faces at once, but I suppose that’s a circle that’s hard to square.

I would imagine he’s counting Glass as a new face so would be surprised if there’s any more than two other additions.
