    Title Over??? Second Place???

    I donít know why but I feel more as to having a chance of the title than before all these postponements.

    If we get a bit of form going then you donít even notice all the matches that are being played.

    Surely Shabba now just needs to give the players light training and the matches can be the focus and keep the players fit.

    First job is to catch Livi one match at a time.

    St Mirren we still have to play at home. Itís a long shot but if we get form going it could start to feel possible

    I don't know about charity, but you certainly have bucket loads of faith and hope!

    Nae chance of title, 2nd place is possible and is a must if we are to have a realistic chance in playoffs. Utd v Dundee playoff final would be a no bad end to a nightmare season

    Obviously if offer of premier final play off was there now then have to take it.

    Iíd fancy Partick Thistle though. Still good memories of last time we beat them in play offs

    After last few years I donít know if I could trust team in a derby final. So much at stake - would be an unbelievable end to the season though if we won through

    No chance of the title, and we would be doing well to get 2nd spot......

    Phuck that I ken they're schite but they would still pump us over two legs . Especially if we're ending up playing about 20 games in aboot 2 months.

    A Dundee derby play off final is a no from me, horrible visions of simple si...

    However we wonít get to the final and I recon livi could relegate them. Lee Miller winner.

    If means we are in the play off final then don't care the opposition, they will be beatable

    2nd is not beyond us at this stage

    Title was lost months ago - the players downing tools and poor managers tactics now leave us fighting for a place in the top 4.

    United will lose more games this Season, the players are not going to suddenly find their form - it's surely only a matter of a few weeks before St Mirren officially win the league - xmas came early for them.

    Also, we were losing games when players such as Fyvie and Fraser were playing.

    If Scott McDonald is not going to be playing as an upfront striker then he should be dropped from the team - he is no use in other position - there are too many passengers in the team already.

    Not after McKinnon left and both were upto speed, they were improving by the game, we went on a great run and looked every bit title challengers until the two were injured late December, so lets not ignore that fact

    Fraser's form was decent but it's Fyvie we've missed the most, he was our best player just before his injury and was bossing games.

    Agree but both together was a really big loss

    Fyvie was upto speed and dominating games and dictating play for us, no chance of replacing at short notice, he is without doubt a top six prem quality player

    Hope we can keep him for next season, and Fraser but have doubts

    Fraser and Fyvie were in both the United teams which lost 0-2 to Inverness in October and also the team which drew 1-1 with Brechin in Nov.

    Fyvie was also in the team which lost 2-0 to Livingston in Oct and Fraser played in the team which lost to Dumbarton.

    Also, when the injured players do return, they won't be match fit. There is no quick fix.

    St Mirren have won the league and sadly, if we are nor careful we might struggle to make the top 4 - never mind winning the play offs.

    Quick fix? Can't see that being suggested anywhere, think most people know 2nd is the aim now

    Sadly the team last year was better than this current team.
    Why that is - is open to debate.

    Last season you could argue we had the 2nd best squad in the division. This season we're not in the top half. At the start of this season we were all confident we'd assembled the league's best squad. What happened? Chronic injury problems & sh!te January signings.

    I thought when we beat QOS at home with 10 men that we were going to win the league

    I thought when we beat St Mirren at home under Laurie and were top that we would finish top

    Now...Iím living in hope that we can at least be second
