    Poor first hand by all accounts, game changed putting McDonald on for Gillespie

    Good to get some goals, other positive is more game time off the bench for Briels and Fraser, a lot of small good signs however, not getting my hopes up either

    QotS next on Saturday in Dumfries

    bizzare thats brechins biggest defeat of season. Given they are on 4 (FOUR) points that surprising. ICT beat the 4-0 3 times and the tims 5-0 at home in cup

    Poor first half , could have been behind. Brechin hit post at start of 2nd then Utd took over. McDonald changed the game when he came on. Much improved 2nd half with plenty chances and some good goals. Good night's work.

    I have seen quite a few really bad 45 minutes of football over the last few years, but that first half has to be down there as the very worst. It has to be noted though that the players, after being kicked all over the park, did not lie down and curl up into a ball this time but dusted themselves down and showed that football can win over in the end!

    We got kicked all over the park in the first half and didnít know how to deal with it. In the second, it was a different story.

    First goal came from concerted pressure. McDonald sent king through for second and he smashed it in. 3rd was great, nice touch from fraser before ralston put a belter of a ball in for McDonald to volley home.

    No exaggeration to say that Fraserís free kick (25 yards, top bag and in offl the underside of the bar) was the finest United free kick Iíve seen in 20 years following the team. Finally, Moshni got the goal his performance deserved- we need to offer him a contract ASAP

    First half was disappointing and dull and we were lucky not to be a goal down - there was very little creativity in the team.

    In the opening 2 mins of the 2nd half Brechin hit the post, but after that United finally moved up a gear and tore Brechin apart.

    McDonald started the 2nd half with Gillespie being subbed and it proved to be the right decision.

    Brechin were good in the first half, but it was all United in the 2nd half.

    So, a game of two half's with United turning on the style in the 2nd half.

    Difficult to decide on best player, but the introduction of McDonald made a difference.

    It was also very close to being 0-6 but a combination of luck and good goal keeping kept the score at 0-5.

    Laszlo does it again.

    The team can withstand an in your face, hard-working Brechin performance and then go on to win with style.

    Progress, however small, and at the right time of the season.

    On a good run but it's the big one on Saturday, hope our bottle holds.

    There has been improvement, no doubt about that. However to suggest that it's come at the 'right time'... More like in the nick of time! And possibly still too late.

    Wouldn't say they are coming good, they are finally showing some organisation and resilience to teams putting some hard tackles in. Test will come if/when we concede first but they have been a lot better these past three games.

    All we can do is keep showing the desire and commitment to winning that we’ve seen the last few games and see where it takes us. If we’re still not good enough then fair enough nobody expected us to go up anyway. But the least we should expect is 100% effort.

    I think the added defensive quality of Moshni and Ralston has been the difference lately.

    Donít forget dropping the keeper has Maybe instilled some confidence as well.

    There is no doubt that Lewis was part of the problem but Moshni and Ralston were making us better, along with Murdoch at LB, and maybe could have lifted Lewis enough to get us through. Thankfully the manager made the decision and we have a better keeper that really should have been in the team long ago.

    I hope we're coming good. But I'm not convinced - not by any stretch of the imagination. IF we somehow manage to prevail in the play-offs then that will be pretty miraculous.

    Gawd knows what would happen next season - a total shot in the dark given that there would undoubtedly be a total clear out of the squad close season.

    Still, I'd take it. A chance is a chance after all.

    I agree we have a chance and if we can nick second then I think we could do it.

    Agree it would be better to have this effort earlier. Thankfully though team have come good at a time when we can still go up

    Whilst I've been a big critic of Laszlo, I would love to be proved wrong.

    The jury is still out but the performances against St Mirren, Falkirk and the second half at Brechin have shown that something has changed.

    However, the questions would be - why has it taken so long to get this reaction from the players? and is it due to the manager or is it down to the influence of the players who have recently joined the club (on and off the park)?

    I'm hoping that Laszlo is the answer because it's the best scenario for our club but there's still some way to go before I'm convinced.
