A midfield containing McGowan, Byrne and Dorrans shouldn't be struggling to control games. 

McGowan has had a few good games against United, but he was dreadful tonight.

I was worried about United's midfield tonight, but they were well on top.

I'm as entitled to my reactionary thoughts as you are to your sanguine ones.
I see nothing here, or in the season so far that suggests we will coast into a play off place and emerge from the process successfully.
I've seen this twice before and seen the effect it has had on the club.
Another extended spell in the second tier is not something to be accepted with a shrug.

Wheesht with your reactionary thoughts if you please.

Didn’t take much. Their patter is honking.


Our patter might be poor but our football team completely owned you tonight and that is the second time this season.

I’ll take points and performances over patter.

I don’t think there was a single Dundee player who got pass marks tonight.

Remember Dundee fans slated Butcher? Rather have him in my team than that set of guisers in dark blue

Looked absolutely finished out there. A mile off the pace.

Considering he got booked (deservedly) after about 45 seconds,  he was absolutely superb the rest of the game. Showed great discipline and a fair bit of skI'll imo.

In the not too distant past, there would have been no fucking chance that he would have survived the game without seeing red.

Shankland got MOTM but Butcher a close second for me.

We'll definitely win against Angus United. 

Maybe, but not against Dundee United.

Nope.

Going into a derby with a good run of form behind us.

We always arse these things up. Prove me wrong, for once, Dundee....

 

They proved you right.

Shite first half, shite early period in the second. Once we got the penalty we absolutely cruised the rest of the match and could have scored more. 

Pity to see so many Dundee fans leave after the second goal, there was still plenty of football to play and they could have got themselves back in the game.

This smug shite is much more subtle than the likes of Danger can present. Fair play.

Honestly thought Watson was United's best player tonight. Snuffed out any attack, absolutely dominated Hemmings and kept it simple and whilst we didn't look like causing many issues whatsoever, he didn't allow anything to develop.

This.

If Connolly gets back in next week in Watson's place, then Robbie needs his fucking head looked at.

Aye Watson's a perfectly serviceable centre half. No nonsense and very good at attacking headers in both boxes. Much like Connolly and a bit less rash.

He's probably got the worst reputation out of the 3 but he looks miles above Connolly whom I wouldn't thank you for and based on tonight and tonight alone, he looked better with the ball at his feet than Reynolds as well.

What age is Reynolds? 

I must say, I remember him as quite a decent ball playing CH. He just absolutely thudded everything tonight though. No chances taken.

Cammy Kerr - who I've not been a fan of at all recently - stuck to his task of staying with Appere - very little progress down the left for United - both goals can from play down the right.

Great team performance by United, tonight. Very cagey first half from both teams, but we looked organised and didn’t give Dundee much time on the ball, which is a big improvement on past performances.
Second half there just seems to be more purpose in our play. Great goals, shankland’s seemed to be created out of nothing. Great touch.
Great atmosphere tonight, marred only by some lone idiot at the beginning. Arabs were different class.
Derry were the Derry and started to leave with a good 15 minutes to go. Wanks.

Great start to the weekend.

Respect to Dundee! I thought you done all you can first half in thwarting United. But the class shown through! We’re just a better team currently but I’m sure you will do well and have a chance in the play offs!
