United in need of a No 9

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today - SPORT­ING POSTBAG

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.
