United in need of a No 9
CAN someone from Dundee United Football Club please tell the fans what has happened to the sell-on-clause money they received from Andrew Robertson’s recent move from Hull to Liverpool?
And why has the club only managed to bring in mediocre players after getting that money and having the highest attendances of all t he teams in the league?
Taking all t his i nto account, how on Earth can Livingston, just promoted from League One, be able to bring in players like Lee Miller from Falkirk, Jake McQuillan from Motherwell and Ryan Hardie from Rangers, while United sign players like Thomas Mikkelsen, Emil Lyng and Craig Slater.
We now have no chance of winning the league and, the way United are playing, they’ll be lucky to get a top-four finish.
Even if they do, they won’t go up without Scott Fraser and Fraser Fyvie, I’m sad to say even as a season-ticket holder.
We will still be in this division for years to come unless the club buys an out-and-out No 9 — the same as a Duncan Ferguson or Davie Dodds.
That man i s Stephen Dobbie from Queen of the South.
Push the boat out Stephen Thompson. Go and buy Dobbie and United will win the league outright next season.— J.P., Dundee.
