Notice Mr Courts is starting to tone down the management speak a bit in recent interviews. 

 

He's had the 'Tam Courts Talking Shite' thread brought to his attention IMO.

Unless we strengthen the squad or stay totally injury free once players like Appere and Chalmers are back then it will be a tough season.  We desperately need a target man, more so if the style of today’s play is an indication of our tactics.

I've said on here before that unlike the majority of United fans, Im not against us going with one striker. I think yesterday was a good example of that. Had we had Butcher on in place of either Clark or McNulty there's no way the midfield would have been as overrun as it was in that first half. Admittedly the big issue with this is I'm not sure Clark or McNulty are cut out for the lone striker role, although I do wonder if Apperre might, when fit, be good in that position.

 

In fairness to Courts he did make changes at the 55min mark which is a whole lot earlier than the previous incumbent ever did.

I'm wondering if that would be Robson's final game for United yesterday, given the manner in which he left the pitch, earlier than the other players at the end, applauding the fans then off. He'll be a bigger miss than some fans will concede if he is leaving.

AFAIK since the Rangers game he's been ready to leave. It's no secret Lincoln are in for him and talks are ongoing. Just hope we can quickly sign the laddy from Hamilton so we aren't left with Sporle/Duffy as I prefer Adrian further up the pitch.

Still awaiting a work permit for Niskanen while Celtic today are playing the Croatian boy they signed 2 days ago.

Why are we waiting weeks (St Johnstone also having the same issue) yet Celtic get clearance within days?

It's always been that way.

Remember when Jason Scotland got his application turned down because "he would not make a significant contribution to the Scottish game", despite the fact he had just scored the goal that put us into Europe?

The fact that he scored that goal against Hibs, it knocked them out, and there were 5 former Hibs players on the panel had no relevance, I'm sure...

Croatia are top 50 ranked nation in the fifa world ranking, and Juranovic has made a decent amount of appearances in the last few years so the application is basically instant. Finland are not a top 50 ranked nation so the work permit takes a while. Think United will get it eventually but It'll just take longer.

 

He'll be available for St Mirren... surely.

Appreciate the point about Croatia, but Israel ranked at 81 (Liel Abada has a solitary substitute appearance for his nation) and Zambia at 87 (Junior Sakala has been capped 13 times) didn't seem to prevent the issue of permits promptly.

Finland is ranked 56, Niskanen has 6 caps.

The question is why are United not making these points rather them being made on a football forum?

Maybe they are. I'm hinting at preferential treatment for some clubs rather than others. Perhaps that is one of the factors in the Niskanen case.
