Dundee United FC v Motherwell FC Saturday 23 October 2021


Recommended Posts

Happy with the result.  Not an easy game. 

Who'd have thought we would be sitting joint top at this stage of the season.  I will just enjoy the moment while I can. 

Secure safety.  Possible top 6.  Anything better that would be a bonus.  A wee run in Scottish would be great if possible.

I never thought of Motherwell as dirty team with a penchant for cheating but they appear to have a lot of dirty players who like to cheat.

f**k Kevin Clancy and Mulgrew is the sexiest man alive.

Wasn’t there today, luckily, but It’s good to see McGinley’s brutal performance last week earned him 90 minutes today.

This seasons going to be pretty average, could finish anywhere from 6-8th, no higher or lower. With our better players tied down to longer contracts, hopefully this season is just about phasing out the remainder of last seasons weak squad.

That's your first mistake right there, my friend. 

Full marks to the Utd PA guy, however, for firing on the HBK theme tune when Mulgrew scored. 

We were rotten. Big changes required for Wednesday night to stop the rot.

Poor game great result.  Mulgrew and Edwards are immense and Benji is not too bad either.

In other news, footage from a Motherwell training session has been leaked:

Unreal right wing play by Mulgrew for the first goal! Then penalty box link up to score the winner. He's been some addition and works very well with Edwards.

 

 

Van Veen was pretty underwhelming, after the radio talking him up of late. But that was a good bit of Motherwell pressure with all the corners before the goal.

Thought the penalty looked soft. Possibly me just thinking keeper usually gets so much 'benefit of the doubt'  in them to never expect the penalty.

 

 

There's a fantastic spirit in this United squad. They keep the effort level high, press and win the ball in the opponent's half so often. It keeps them in games even though they don't score.

As dreadful as we were, it's amazing that if it wasn't for some excellent saves from Seigrist we may have got something from that game.

Utd fans owe us some good jokes after us giving them 90 mins of McGinley.

Alexander is at it, with his post match interview. Also I wonder what McGinley has got on Alexander that allows him to get as much game time.

Joint top of the league, eh? 
 

 

Spoiler

Where’s a fucking league ending pandemic enforced shutdown when you need it???

 

Although, to be fair, probably shouldn’t complain too much after what happened last time round…

Mulgrew's been a fantastic signing and that cross on his weaker foot for Edwards was superb. You can tell that he and Edwards are enjoying playing alongside each other.

I thought the penalty was the correct decision. Benji was a bit too reckless going to punch the ball. It was a pity because he'd made that brilliant point blank save about a minute or so before that.

Couldn't agree more about the team spirit. The work ethic is great to see.

Had to double check the team lines from today. Thought it was Maldini and Baresi at the centre of Uniteds defence. Difficult to put into words how much i love Charles Mulgrew and Ryan Edwards

Alphabetically clear at the top of the league, from my viewpoint.

 

Surprised the 'well supporters on here are quite disparaging of their performance, I was impressed by them going forward and thought Tony Watt was the sort of player most fans would want to see on their team, given his hard work and pest value. Felt you might have deserved a draw.
