United face Rangers on Sunday in a fixture that has been good to them over the years. Rangers haven't won at Tannadice since 2003.
There was a time where we used to joke on the various message boards that our stadium was like a "fortress", an unreachable place that people could not buy a win at. I wish those days were back again. What is lacking in my team is not a will to win, we have that in abundance!. We are lacking in the consistency that sees teams march up the league. We seem unable to grind that draw from the snatches of defeat, or in some cases go that extra yard to turn one point into three.
We know we can pick up the points when we need to, we are capable of matching the teams that are playing well. Three examples of this would be the 3-3 draw at Parkhead a few weeks back or the 1-1 draw against high flying Hearts (when really we should have secured all three points) Kilmarnock who are punching above their weight this season, pulling it back to a 2-2 and denied a stonewall penalty. We can roll our sleeves up for these games but lack the consistency that we need to be where the fans expect.
Rightly or wrongly, most United fans expect to be battling for top 6 in the SPL. We have not had the easiest of seasons and yet another manager has went through the exit door at Tannadice. Chisholm was a really nice guy but was not United's calibre of manager. I hope that Brewster is given the time and the resources to turn the ship around. He has made some positive noises about reducing the wage bill. Given that United's squad is one of the leanest in Scotland must surely mean that some of the high earners will be replaced for cheaper more cost effective replacements.
Best of all Brewster is an Arab!. He knows what it means to the United fans. He wears the crest on his heart and his heart on his sleeve!. When United lose, it hurts Craig as much as it does ourselves.
If any man can bring the consistency required to make our ground a "Fortress Tannadice" I believe it is Craig Brewster.
Proud to be an Arab
