    I honestly believe a gypsey could sell a magic bean to some supporters and they would think its magic.

    Regime change or nothing. MM been there throughout the turmoil and some you ground hogs are calling him the messiah .... deary me! we have sunk lower than the fun. My bairn will be spared this pish I canít out them through this ****e! The biggest disappointment to me in the downward spiral of Utd is the lack of back bone from the fans .....ST must go and his puppet put up or shut up and give Gussie back
    Amen brother!!!

    Not seen the full interview yet, but some of what i have seen smacks of the usual, BUY YIR FECKIN SEASON TICKETS WILL YE OR.......

    Thats maybe me being a bit cynical because of his link to the old regime, but if you gauge a man by his actions, he is doing some good. Looking at the youth system that many on here have moaned about. With several players being cleared out, we have a completely new set up with the old coach now a scout. 4 of the current set up, Robson, Allardice, Chalmers and Smith all seem to be getting a chance to prove themselves in the first team makes that a base for us to judge MM on in the future.

    The rest of the background stuff i would put a guess that nobody on here would be able to describe to anyone, myself especially. There does seem to be quite a bit going on that we have non interest in, but quite a bit of it will be contributing long term to provide revenue to the club/team. With that, time has to be given to see if that becomes successful.

    Well the distance from Dundee to Newcastle Australia is 10,410miles so under the Monkey's Ferry Castle rule the organ grinder is 10,385 miles outside the radius,however he can still make the Monkey dance.

    Don't know what to think anymore, but I would be in the Csaba NO Camp! However If I can use an analogy on the Martin/Thompson act. McKinnon/Ellis are in no doubt synonymous but when Ray was sacked, Ellis stepped up to the plate albeit briefly and produced. Maybe the same will happen now that Martin has stepped up, but hopefully brief success will turnout to be prolonged. Anyway will take in a match when I can, but won't stretch to a season ticket. C'mon United

    So if a "better than we have got" player is prepared to sign, but is not prepared to uproot his family from elsewhere, then we are not going to sign him. Pity.

    I'm not so sure about the policy either but it is what is. I can understand the logic of it and it'll be interesting to see if it makes a difference.

    Itís obviously borrowed from the McLean years.

    I suppose there will not really be much difference in quality in players going for. May be this will weed out the ones with a bit more commitment from those turning up for a last pay cheque or that are planning to commute daily from Annan
