can't help thinking your wrong,his form has been up and down like a whooors drawers his whole career,what makes you think he's away to turn into Messi emoji848.png

I didn't say Messi! I said clever and perhaps by extension hinted at "effective" . . . and would further qualify it (if pushed) by adding "by Scottish football standards".
As an Aberdeen man you will recall that Frank McDougall wasn't the most skilful man ever to play the game. But he was effective. Duncan Shearer was probably an even better example. A very good player.

What's Butcher alleged to have done?

Shagging every c***s wife. Battering folk shagging his wife and then battering her. 

Mental health break because he's lost the plot and went AWOL in Amsterdam loads of other pish too. 

He's fine just injured BTW.

What's their respective goalscoring records? What's it been since they've both been at United together?

I appreciate that it won't be the popular view right now, but I wonder how they'll both be thought of once they've left United.

I will defend Nicky Clark more than most, but there is absolutely no way he is a better player than Tony Watt.

Non monogamous relationship thread for this pish.

I've hardly paid attention to football since we brought in Chuckles, but every time I saw Tony Watt play for United on Sportscene he easily looked to be your best player up front. In the last derby he was a right bugger for us to deal with, especially compared to that wooden carthorse McNulty.

I'd also say I would've thought Clark is due more credit than he gets, about as consistent a scorer as you lot have had since Shanks buggered off (not that this suggests that goalscoring has been a strength for you).

Better strike rate than Watt tbf.

That is true, and I actually like Nicky Clark. He has scored some very important goals for the club since he came, and when he leaves, I will always believe he has been a good servant to United.

Watt on the other hand has been great since he came in. It is not all about goals. He has had a number of class assists this season which have turned 1 point into 3 on more than one occasion, and anyone who is judging him just by goals scored is not looking at the bigger picture.

This is not making pish excuses for a lower than expected goal scoring tally. Like all teams we have had our fair share of dross January signings. Watt is absolutely not one of them, and overall performance and results are noticeably poorer when he is not on the pitch.

You are giving him a better write-up than he deserves.
I honestly can't work out what it is that McNulty brings to the team. He's not fast, he's not a "clever" player. He doesn't win long balls (in fact all he does is try to get himself fouled when a long ball comes towards him). His passing is woeful, his movement in the box is non-existent. I can't remember ever seeing him trying to "get across" a defender as they say good strikers are meant to do.
United should play one of the kids rather than him. Or a defender out of position.
In fact, watching McNulty gives me an inferiority complex! I keep wondering what is it that I'm not seeing that the staff of a professional football club DO see? I clearly know F all about the game.
I read that rumour about Dundee's Danny Mullen supposedly signing a pre-contract at Tannadice (I'll believe it when I see it!) and a few DFC folks saying "no loss". But he has to be better than McNulty. From what I've seen of Mullen, at least he looks like he gives a F!

This @Thorfinn's write ups a long winded and boring. Bring back the Stu, IMO. 

Depends upon your level of intelligence (your ability to type an error-free sentence counts against you in that respect), and your ability to concentrate on one subject for 10 seconds or more. 
Some people who peruse football forums enjoy talking about football.

This. Clark gets way more criticism than he merits. He's not a first choice starter for any team that wants to be top six, but more than capable of filling in for injuries and giving an option off the bench.

The problem is when managers try and shoehorn him into midfield.

Watt is way better though. Way, way better.
