Dunfermline Leapfrog Dundee United?

Dunfermline Leapfrog Dundee United?

Hearts, Dunfermline and Saint Mirren have all leapfrogged Dundee United in the Coca Cola "Buy A Player" league table, knocking Craig Levein's side down to 9th.

Ironically, Dundee United are currently sitting in 9th in the real SPL league table, but are fortunately 16 points clear of 12th placed Dunfermline and 8 above Saint Mirren in 11th position.

Supporters can raise money for their own club by buying promotional bottles and multi-packs, where 1 in every 2 packs is guaranteed to be a winner.

Some clubs are even offering incentives to supporters to raise money through the Coca Cola promotion.

Grimsby Town chairman John Fenty has promised to shave all his hair off, if Grimsby supporters can raise £50,000 towards his clubs transfer budget.

Stoke City chairman Peter Coates has said he will put up £100,000 of his own money, if Stoke fans match it by raising £100,000 in the 'Buy A Player' promotion.

Whilst, Burnley chairman B.C. Kilby is offering free buses to supporters to 3 away matches, if they can raise £100,000.

Several other managers have threatened to sing, serve burgers, dye their hair or buying every fan a drink - but so far no Scottish clubs have made similar appeals to their supporters on the Coca Cola website.

Perhaps Dundee United chairman Eddie Thompson could offer to do something if Arabs raise a certain amount of money - maybe offering the supporters a chance to pick the team one afternoon, or offering to buy a drink for every Arab at a certain away match, etc, etc….
