2 or 3 Going - To Free Up Funds

2 or 3 Going - To Free Up Funds

The launch of Dundee United's new ArabZone website is fast approaching and the club have been allowing supporters sneak previews of interviews and archive footage which will appear on the new site.

The club have announced that post and pre-match interviews will appear on the site, along with full match coverage which will have "unashamedly biased commentary".

This week, the eNewsletter gave United fans the opportunity to see Craig Levein's full interview at Ibrox, following the humiliating 5-0 defeat.

It made interesting viewing, with the manager going into more detail about his disgust at certain players giving up half-way through the match.

"I will not tolerate people at this football club who don't care if they win or lose," Levein told ArabZone.

"These are the same guys that caused this club problems in the past and I wont tolerate it - players who don't care if they lose 2,3,4,5,6 goals."

"We've not had great times in recent years and I wont allow these same players to cause my problems, the same problems they caused the previous manager."

"I've drawn a line in the sand now, they've got a very short period of time to change their ways or they leave."

"I might move 2 or 3 people out, which will then make more money available to bring more players in."

"Psychologically, if there are certain players who don't pull their weight, then you can't carry passengers."

Defender David McCracken was told yesterday that his contract at the club wont be renewed in the summer, making him the 1st player to be shown the exit door at Tannadice.

However, if Craig Levein is to be taken at his word, he wont be the only one and several 1st team players are walking a tightrope, with results like yesterdays 1-0 defeat at Kilmarnock not likely to change Levein's mind on who is on their way out of the club.

Im really looking forward to the launch of ArabZone. If its even half as good as Dundee United are making out, it'll be a very useful source of information for all Arabs.
