    What Ross did was start building for this season last season while at the same time saving them from relegation

    Whereas we were playing right to the final day of May in the playoffs

    Still think McKinnon should have had more time but we had to get the replacement right, exactly the same as when we sacked McNamara, had to get the replacement right and we didn't

    agree and despite the terrible football mckinnon was playing he may have got us 3rd as well replace mckinnon with someone who wasnt a clown and we had a chance.

    Actually still cant believe he is in charge.

    You weren't wrong. St Mirrens signings were poorer than ours, its just that they had a better manager and as for Livi see St Mirren.

    Gunboat - if Ray Mckinnon signed the players that Jack had signed he would've been chased out of Tannadice. It would have been absolute bedlam on here too. Nothing to do with the quality of the signings, all to to with the quality of management /coaching.

    It is bedlam on here no matter who we sign. The notion that our squad is vastly superior to St. Mirren's and it is all down to poor coaching is fundamentally flawed. So is the notion that the players are all useless and nobody could improve them. As always the truth lies in the middle. The biggest problem we have is the constant short termism of our approach.

    My memory is not the best to be honest but its a fact that i did say that Ross was a very good manager,you said he signed a pile of shyte and Smedum accused me of being a ST Mirren fan.

    I think thats looking for a reason to forgive Ray who had someone looking for players for him!

    You could be right i don't know what my exact words. He signed a lot of nobodies and won the league with them because he's a good manager.

    Do you think we would've won the league with his signings with either Ray or Laszlo in charge?

    Agree with that and dont understand the loyalty to Csaba.. He clearly isnt good enough and who cares if we hire a new manager again.. There is no continuity or stability anyway cause all the ayers are gone. Csaba in my opinion lost the dressing room when be publicly criticised McMullen for diving to get a penalty when we were 3-0 up.. Thing is he told the players he wanted more goals and he was only trying to do what was asked. Csaba should have backed him on that.. We will start season well and then hell loose the new dressing room..

    Although that dive happened right in front of me, i cant remember if that was in the box, but i dont think it was! Only thing i am sure of is diving should never be condoned by any United supporter for any reason!

    I am not backing Shabba here, but i think telling the players some home truths is what caused him to loose some of the dressing room. He was only passing on our message to the players that they were a bunch of mercenaries who were only interested in seeing out the season to join another club.

    I guess it makes signing players much easier if we can show we look after the ones that do.

    The right think to do. And if he can get back to full fitness, i hope the keeper we get in is good enough to keep him out!
