    The past 20 seasons have been a total disaster for United with only 2 seasons in the SPL and 5 in League 1

    Which leave us with 4 cup finals, god i hate that expression. Were just 1 point out of the playoff spots so a few wins should be enough to reach the top 4 but were 5 points and 4 teams away from 2nd so would have to win the lot and get some help along the way

  2. Match 33
    Forfar vs Dundee Utd

    Great way to start and a true note of where we are now. My first match at Dundee Utd is as a 11/1 underdog

    Forfar 2-1 Dundee Utd

    Not the start i wanted. Impossible to judge where we are thanks to a red card after 3 minutes. The result means the best we can hope for is 4th with even 3rd looking beyond us after just 1 game.

    Match 34
    Dundee Utd vs Inverness CT
    Two teams who are just outside the top 4 and a defeat for either could end there season.

    In was a nervous start and for the first 20 minute the game was a tight close fought affair before 10 magic minutes put us 3 goals clear. A late consolation for Caley was far too late to impact the result. 2 games to go and were right back in the playoff hunt.

    Match 35
    Dundee Utd vs Livingston
    This is our easiest match on paper against already relegated Livingston. Having said that they did just beat champions Forfar

    Dundee Utd 5-2 Livingston

    This should have been in the bag after we scored 3 goals in the first 21 minutes but it got tough right after the break when Livi had it back to 3-2. our superior stamina came through and 2 goals toward the end makes this look better than it was. Sadly Forfar missed a 90th minute penalty and failed to beat St Johnstone so its now impossible to catch them for 2nd and we'll need a result against them in our final game to secure a top 4 spot.

    Match 36
    Dundee Utd vs St Johnstone
    Final game of the season. St Johnstone have locked down a play off spot as have Queen of the South and because 2nd is still up for grabs St Johnstone cant rest players for this match and will want a win as much as we do. Difference is if we dont win we might not make the playoffs.

    As our home games seem to go it was a close first 20 minutes then we turned on the afterburners and the way St Johnstone are set up they were all but beaten once they were 2 goals down. Ally Tiffoney almost made me eat my words but we stayed on and two more goals in the 2nd half locked down our playoff spot.

    And it's St Johnstone who we'll play in the first of a possible 6 games that will decide what league we'll play in next season.

    Aberdeen have also appointed there full time manager

    After taking the lead in the 3rd minute i would have expected a lot more than a 1 goal win but at least we kept a clean sheet that could be huge with our form on the road being abysmal

    We played it tight with the first leg lead and when we doubled it through substitute Brownlie we took a step back and when a St Johnstone own goal put us 3 goals clear we shut up shop and rested for the next round when St Johnstone began a comeback but thankfully it ended with 2 goals.

    The two sides with the biggest financial backing in the league. Both have been taken over by consortium in the past few seasons. Not the biggest takeover however as Raith were taken over by Lithuanians, Hearts fans look away!

    Easily our best display since i took over. Its take about a month to get this team playing the way i want. Fitness is starting to be a issue leaving a big question on who to play in the 2nd leg. I cant see us throwing away a 3 goal lead if we rest a few.

    Dang that couldnt have been rougher on my heart. We changed 9 players leaving our star on the bench and the VERY risky move worked out as we built a wall Donald Trump and the Chineese would be proud of that gets us through the the final playoffs with a lot of rest for our first 11

  7. Play Off Final

    Rangers have the third best squad in the league but a slow start seen Roy Carroll's 14 seasons at the club ended when he was sacked before moving on to Liverpool. rangers have gone the other way under Ricki Lamie who had them bottom at one stage but after moving into the top 10 a late defeat to St Mirren sent them into the play off

    Can we start getting the SPFL badges on our shirts? we went into the 2nd half in the lead but the whole tie changed when Rangers went down to 10 men and set up the strangest formation i've seen. They put nobody on there left wing so we went more attacking and focused down the right and a further 4 goals including 3 from Noble. The two own goals and the red card for Black tells me these players probably want to drop down a division

    The second leg was a formality and we'll be in the SPL with a whole new team next season!

    Sadly we'll never know how this will turn out as i've had a major job at work that ha had me locked down for the past 2 week so i'm not going to be doing this save since FM18 is out in under a month and i have no idea how much time i'll have to play
