  1. He would be a good player, but the type of signing that would worry me a bit. Our average wage 22/23 was £2885pw & we were 80 odd % turnover to wages & Hearts were £6409. Coming from Everton he's probably on a damn good wage & with his form when fit he'd easily get more than we would (should) be offering. That market of players from England not getting a chance because of the spending power to bring in ready made players & squad players is one that we should be trying to exploit. Hopefully though we now have folk at the helm who will try & be able to get that type of player with out the wages of 2 seasons ago.
  2. That was the issue with the relegated team. It was a.team of talented individuals that somehow managed to be lesser than the sum of its parts. Happy to have no real "stars" if we can create a real team that compliments each other and can be greater than the sum of their parts.
  3. Can't wait!! Mind you first rumour seems to be a stadium naming deal. From the lad Shedward on East. Has a decent track record. Anyone here heard anything?
  4. I'd love it if he actually had the balls.to say that!!! Might tip a.few.over the edge but it would be funny.
  5. To be honest I am allowing myself to be in total celebration mode at the moment, and it feels good!! Having said that part of it is relief that it's over, and especially at the first time of asking unlike last time. I'll worry about next season in a few weeks, but now I'm looking forward to 2 league games with absolutely no pressure at all.
  6. This for me. I'll be hoping for a Rovers loss on Friday. If that happens it will be fantastic going along to Tannadice absolutely delighted to be there & no slight feelings of dread. Full on celebration mode.
  7. There in lies the problem. I've been in a similar situation when attending a game with my son who was 8 years old at the time and the fear is that I ended up with grief & trying to keep him safe as the were partmof a much larger group. Confronting them in that situation was not an option and trying to speak to stewards etc may have been difficult without making it obvious. As we get more of the attitude that idiot behaviour is unacceptable then the easier it should become for folk to self police.
  8. The difference being fans in the States will turn up in advance of kick off, where by there are vast swathes of fans who sit in the pub to almost the last moment. If you need to search everyone then the delay in getting tlin before kick off may cause folk to kick off. It only needs one or two in the queue to do so, before others may react, in some cases justifiably, verbally and then you can have a big problem. If folk would only act like adults ( I know!!!) then there would be no problem.
  9. As I said previously about it, I'd raging at a United defender doing that. Watson clearly has both arms round Moult by the book it is a penalty. The only criticism is the way Moult drops as having arms round you like that doesn't make you fall in that manner, but you see that week in week out, the fall though isn't what the penalty is for it is the 2 arms round Moult which was as clear as day at the match. A stupid, needless foul but one leading to a happy outcome for us.
  10. I think it's a confidence thing. Outwardly he seems to project the cocky, confident player. I do wonder if some of that is a bit of a cover with his self belief basing that on some of his snatching at chances & the way his head can go down. This season we have seen more of the team player, where he doesn't stand out and does things Watt of old wouldn't, but today he got his goal, well taken, and a few things worked for him. The 2nd went in and the pressure lifted, and you saw Watt really showing what he could do. As you say a bit more work on his head, as he seems much more of a team player this season, he really would be up there.
  11. Sibbald was noticeable last season as one of the few players we were happy to keep on for this season. The points won when Docherty is on the pitch, compared to when he has been injured is also really significant. You'll not find a United fan who doesn't appreciate their importance this season. Although in every team it is always the goal scorers that get the songs & Watt and Moult are two, by Scottish standards, far better known, higher reputation players & should be nowhere near Championship, but I get what your saying, but we do appreciate their importance.
  12. Is there an echo? Will everyone be accused of that? After first 5 minutes, in that first half and other than Ruddens shot that hit the top of the bar, there was absolutely nothing from Raith. Was quite surprised. Dubrovski made a number of saves and it wouldn't have been a shock if we'd gone in at least 2 up at the break.
  13. Reading comprehension not too strong? Or did you just read as far as the first thing that named a Raith player? Your as bad as the folk that rage and form opinions from a headline without reading the article. Both teams were at the "dark arts", but the original post was completely myopic, and was just mentioning a few things as balance, and claiming that's why Rovers lost which is plainly complete and other, one -eyed bollox.
  14. I know folk like to wind up rivals, we are all guilty of it and let's face it it can be fun!!! But to spend money on a ticket in the away end to watch your rivals hopefully lose, on a day your own team is only 20 odd miles up the road is pretty sad.
