    I happened to us under Mixu a lot. Teams just pressed up the park and we did not have enough quality on the ball to cope.

    aye he had two good saves one at 1-0 and i think the other at 4-2...but that 1st half was a disgrace and its down to a manager playing a formation that will never work when a team will run at ya...we'll get away with it v an Alloa type team but not against hearts at tynecastle.(would have been interesting to see what hearts were made of if we got a 3rd when on top)

    You will struggle to find a United fan who thinks we have the personnel for a back 3 yet our present manager seems to have it as his default starting line-up.
    Tbf to MM though, he's not stuck with one as so many managers do. He's shifted from 433 to 451 to 5 at the back and back again. Now he's got another new player in he's changed it up again. Perhaps the 5 at the back was meant to mitigate the brain farts? OK it didn't work but at least he tried.

    Today only reinforced what I've been saying, it's better players that will make the difference for us not different tactics.

    He is more likely to change things than any previous manager but why play a back three when that back three are not comfortable at all on the ball and invariably play hoofball or pass it to the opposition on more occasions than is good for my blood pressure.

    You are spot on though that no amount of tactics will improve 90% of our team because they have reached their zenith a long time ago on that score. They aren't very good and that is putting it mildly.

    I think part of the reason for the back three was the size of Aberdeen and wanting more height in our box. It wasnít pretty but I think we defended our box pretty well despite some good deliveries from Aberdeen.

    Good point Super-Shed they definitely had a height advantage.

    So you would rather have Dundee chat on a United Aberdeen thread just because you have a thick Dee moderator running the show.

    Unbelievable.

    You will lose more and more posters.
