Season 2020’21: Game 18: Dundee Utd (A)

Recommended Posts

First away win in 2020 came in the city of Dundee. Last away win in 2020 will come in the city of Dundee. Right?

A win would be great, to end the year in 5th place and hopefully further away from the relegation places so I am going to go for 2-0 to the good guys and extend our unbeaten run to 2 :)

Our defence has been reasonably solid against decent opposition the last couple of games. Here's hoping that means we can concentrate on coaching our midfield and forwards for this one.

United have conceded 5 in their last 9. We've scored 3 in our last 6. 

Not a great combo.

When the strikers aren't scoring the midfielders need to be chipping in. Hopefully one of those units will get us a couple of goals and the 3 points.

I've got some sympathy for the set-piece takers as I've lost count of the chances Gallagher in particular has squandered the past few months. Mugabi and O'Hara have missed their share too. We also have a habit of loading up the back post and never putting anyone at the front.

Apart from that, it's all good :cheers:

So In typical Motherwell rolller coaster fashion 3-0 for super well.

United switched to 4-4-2 last night and got success.  Which of our many formations from this season will we deploy?

Think we'll see a return to 4-3-3 for this one, with either Cole or Hastie coming back in to join Watt and Lang as part of the front three.

 

Would like to see us start the game the way we ended the Aberdeen game, by playing in between their midfield and defence and building from there.

See our two 3-0 'wins' have been suspended.

So 6 points worse off than we were for the time being.

thought he'd have went for some muscle , but he picks his squad

Would have thought if Carroll was fit enough to be in the squad he should start, even getting 45 only, and I would have Hastie playing before Crawford.

Great to see Carroll returning along with Carson. Quietly optimistic about today.

Can see why he hasn't changed the back 5 but I’d have liked to have seen McGuire & Cole in for Crawford & Lang. Hope Carson’s not been rushed back....

I'd like to see us give both Mcguire and Hastie a run of 6 games to see how they do  - they need a chance to show if they have what it takes.

I don't even know Mcguires best position - should he partner Gallagher or is he better as a hold midfield player.

I think McGuire needs to play as a holding midfielder to be honest. Not against giving Hastie a run of games but not sure he fits in this 5-3-2/3-5-2 formation.

Maguire for crawford and cole for Lang.   And someone else on set pieces.  Do that and we might have a chance....COYW

My thoughts too.
