    John Robertson

    Usually fair bit not tonight, playing the hard done by card, and the pressure is on united card, that on the back of moaning about the playoffs when they knew the setup in advance and are fortunate to even be getting an opportunity to go up finishing 3rd, just as we were previous seasons

    Really hope we put in a proper hardworking battling performance on Friday, play the game like its 0-0 and make sure he isn't running onto our pitch celebrating again

    True but let's not overestimate them either, even if they get the first goal we can still go on and beat them, both on the night or overall

    To be fair I quite like Robbo as he always stands up to the establishment and isn't a bad coach to boot. However he was totally wrong in his ramblings that the officials were one sided. McKay to yellow card fouls all day long, when you look at Booths booking, Donaldson arguably a red. I thought Connolly made the most of his 'toe in the p*s, but I have seen Utd players get sent off for high boot, even when their back was turned on the opponent i.e. Overhead kick.

    Having now watched it again, I have no idea what he's complaining about that was a definite red card. Maybe I'm giving him too much credit but perhaps he's deliberately trying to create a 'them and us' situation to motivate his players?

    Or trying to sway officials to lean towards them for 2nd leg with a 'hard done' routine?

    I estimated last night that it took 13 mins for us to get a free kick v umpteen for them, 2/3 which was for offside. As far as McMullen celebration goes .. big fkn deal!

    normally like Robertson but hes way off the mark with his comments imo which made him sound very bitter.

    before the game, he was complaining about everything and getting every excuse in including amount of matches, lack of squad, uniteds budget etc. the media jumping on it aswell showing how much of an "injustice" it is for ICT.

    his comments after the game were a disgrace.
    the red card?
    Butcher was sent off for a similar challenge v st mirren in cup and its not ok to just boot a boy in the head. Liam polworth isnt that sort of player? who cares he still endangers the united player. that whole argument of hes not that sort of player is irrelevant
    mcmullan to get booked for celebration?
    he didnt even go over the advertisement boarding fs.
    no mention of Donaldsons shocking tackle on Pawlett? but will bring up jordan white has "been in the wars"

    he needs to get a grip imo. yeah he isnt happy with red card but wanting mcmullan sent off and suggesting we were the dirty team is poor from him. how that trafford didnt get booked ill never know. booth got booked for his first tackle haha

    laughable stuff.

    hope hes even sicker come friday.

    A number of challenges from ICT that should have got stronger punishment.

    Eventually someone getting kicked in the head produces a red.

    Robertson comments laughable but he can say what he wants to try and motivate his team.

    Got to do that talking on the pitch and beat them on Friday

    To be fair if that penalty was given against us at 1-0 down id be raging too. Craigan and Sutton were nearly at blows in the studio about it. But as Sutton says it doesn't matter how much you feel an injustice you're no good sitting in the stand. Think hes going to be in more troublr for his post match rant about 4th officials and referees.
    Anyway off you pop Robbo, we just edged it 4-0

    Fair play to Robertson tonight. Thought it was a touch of class for him to come down and applaud our players and fans. So SFA to see that as something to file a report about. We’ve been on the other side of Clancy et al. Feckin horrendous ref for us several times in the past. Do wish at times Scottish Football would stand up together against the weegie mafia, arrogance and incompetence that’s so obviously in the game.

    I'm sure he had in mind that he would rather compete against Hamlton or St Mirren next year. Also he will be wanting all his visits to Dundee next season to be much easier.

    To be fair, as said above, Robertson was highly magnanimous in defeat and wished us well. As regards Kevin Clancy, ICT can bleat all they want - now they know how we felt after that infamous game up there 6 year ago. Phuck ye’s ye hammerthrowing w@nkers.
