Dundee United 20/21 thread

Recommended Posts

Sad day for the club and everyone who cheered his teams on to such amazing achievements. Our , and arguably one of Scottish footballs greatest managers. We will never see his like again.

If ever someone could be described as being a bigger man than the club it’s wee jum. An unbelievable character and an even better manager. RIP.

Was miles ahead in terms of coaching and training than just about anyone else in the UK when taking over at Utd and kept an amazing standard for such a long time given the resources he had to play with in comparison to other teams.

He was strict and could be a bit of a b*****d but his drive and commitment were second to none and having known a lot of the Arab players at that time they accepted it because it worked.

I know I have called him a baldy headed c**t on a few occasions and probably much worse, I wouldn't have felt I had to if he had been shite at his job, the fact that we passed him over makes it all the more galling and he is certainly worthy of the legendary status across the road.

RIP Jim Mclean

Took a wee provincial club to a major European final.  It’s a pity that his passing has happened at a time when fans of the club will be unable to pay their respects.

As a young lad growing up I can still remember the games against Barcelona, what a job he did, a true legend.  Rip.

As a wee laddie growing up in Glasgow in the erly 80s, having never set foot in Dundee before, I started supporting United because of the team Jim built, and the football they played.......

Nothing I can write here can do justice to the man, so let’s leave it at RIP Jim, a true legend, and thank you.

Thoughts and love from the whole clan MaCArab to the McLean family.

I've no doubt that the United fans will be paying respects to him when crowds are allowed back into Tannadice.

I remember Jim McLean’s great Dundee United team coming to Brockville after beating Borussia Monchengladbach in the UEFA Cup Semi Finals and applauding them onto the pitch.

I was 12 and didn’t really understand the magnitude of the achievement by United at the time.

He was a great manager in fact he was a genius of which we’ll never see the likes again.

RIP Wee Jim - you’ll never be forgotten.

The applause for Jim McLean , and United , got a special mention in " The Scotsman "

and Brian Clough was very impressed as well

Its a very tough evening being a United fan. I doubt there will be many who arent extremely upset or having a hard time given the messages and videos that are being posted today. It shows the sort of mark that the man has set on the city and the country as a whole in a football sense. Cant hide how devastated i am
