It was a frustrating and disappointing start to the league season last Saturday with a 1-1 draw against Hamilton. Waghorn pulled up in the second half after we had used all 3 subs with what looked like a serious hamstring injury however news yesterday says its no too bad and he’ll only be out for 2 – 3 weeks so could be back in contention for the Old Firm game.
Tuesday evening saw us at home in the League cup against Peterheid and we progressed easily through with a 5 – 0 win. Clint Hill scored 2 with Kranjcar and Dodoo also scoring.
That takes us through to the quarter final where we have been drawn against Queen of the South who beat that team from Embra who were gonna win the treble last year.
The quarter final tie will be at home on Tuesday 20th September with a 7.45 pm kick off (UK Time).
This weekend sees us travel to Dundee to take on the league leaders who beat Ross County 3-1 away last weekend. Game kicks aff at 3.15 tomorrow afternoon ( Saturday) and as always will be shown in the Bear Pit via RTV.
This will be the last weekend we will have one of the club regulars in attendance as John Whyte will be retiring for a 2nd time. I believe there is a competition between John and Gibbo to see who has the most come backs !!
The club would like to wish John all the very best on his retirement, flitting between Pattaya and Peterheid. John will be in the Clanny tonight and tomorrow if anyone would like to pop in a wish him all the best.
The committee of the Ladyboy Loyal will probably be advertising for a new member to sit with them though I shudder to think what the selection process will be.
Reminder that 2016/17 club fees are due and the old Firm game next month will be Members and guests only.
Interesting to see Dundee United now complaining that the Championship isnay getting any TV coverage this season. Wonder why that is ??? Answers on a postcard to Tannadice.
