We often talk of clubs hating themselves to death and hating Rangers more than loving their own clubs, but Dundee United really have done this and are paying a high, high price. They might not be dead, yet, but their relegation and subsequent failure to return to the top flight despite three attempts will have serious ramifications for them.
They were the ones who were most happy to dance to Liewells tune back in 2012 and were very vocal about it. Since then they've been arse raped by the Mhanks for their best players and that, along with our demotion has meant that they lost out on serious cash, not to mention key players.
They deserve every single tear they are currently crying and that clock is now ticking just a little bit faster.
As much as I'm glad they won the tie, there's something just a little bit shameless about the 11th place team celebrating staying up as if they've just won the Champions League with champagne and camera in the dressing room
I must say many years ago when Jim McLean was in charge they were a decent side who earned respect and I wouldn't have been relishing the fact that they had had fallen on hard times, but with all the things they did to us and they stuck the boot in to us at every turn and helped the peadohiders by being their rslicking bidey buddies they deserve this and more, it's a great day isn't it.
Great to see Dundee Utd galvanising their championship status! A wee diddy club that can’t take a penalty, doubt they will make the playoffs next season as they galvanise their championship credentials even more!
Amidst all the merriment and joy, there is one man we should have a great deal of sympathy for.
The poor referee John Beaton.
He tried his best, pulled every string he could, sailed as close to the wind as he dared with decisions, and tried to return this “big club” to its “rightful place” in the top league. As per, he fucked it up.
I wouldn’t pay him, he failed.
