Arab Rant: 2008 Resolution To Quit Winning?
Dundee United continued with the 2008 New Years resolution, by forfeiting another SPL victory against Hibernian.
In 2007, winning seemed to come naturally for United, with Barry Robson and Noel Hunt scoring for pleasure, but things changed after the Hogmanay hangovers faded away.
After being widely tipped as favourites for 3rd spot in the SPL this season, Dundee United currently sit at the bottom of the league table with only 2 points out of a possible 15.
It was embarrassing enough losing to Hamilton on the opening day of the campaign, but United now hold the record for the only SPL side not to won a match since the season kicked-off.
It`s not surprising that things started to go wrong for Levein when former club captain Barry Robson moved to Parkhead at the end of the January transfer window.
Then, to make matters even worse, the clubs top scorer Noel Hunt joined his brother at Reading in the summer.
Roy O`Donovan and Warren Feeney might be talented strikers, but they need to build up a successful partnership and start scoring goals soon.
How long can manager Craig Levein continue at Tannadice, with a squad of under-performing players, who have only managed 4 wins in 22 league games this year?
If things don`t improve, then how long before Craig Levein quits the club, how long before the supporters start staying away and how long before United become relegation favourites with the bookies?
