Another Game, Another Red Card...
Every time Dundee United take to the field in an SPL match this season, there always seems to be a red card at some stage of the match.
Willo Flood has been sent-off twice, once for 'diving` against Aberdeen and the other in a reserve match against Kilmarnock for taking a freekick too quickly.
Defender Christian Kalvenes was even sent-off in a 1st team game against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park, for having the cheek to tackle Rangers-bound Stephen Naismith.
With United 1-0 up, Kalvenes was rewarded for his inch perfect challenge, with a straight red card and Killie used their 1-man advantage to steal an undeserved 2-1 win in the late stages of the game.
Then, during Dundee United`s last outing, Morgaro Gomis was sent from the field, after a stupid tug on Russell Latapy, his 2nd booking in under 5 minutes.
That makes 4 red cards in 7 games for Dundee United already this season.
Fortunately on this occasion, it wasn`t Dundee United that were reduced to 10-men, after Saint Mirren defender Franco Miranda was sent-off for a 2nd bookable offence in the 67th minute.
Although, Saint Mirren manager Gus McPherson was using the sending off as an excuse for his teams poor performance at Tannadice on Sunday.
"United are a very strong, organised outfit and it`s no coincidence they have kept so many clean sheets," confessed McPherson to the Dundee Courier.
"They have continuity at the back and not many teams will come to Tannadice and get an easy game of it."
Dundee United ran out worthy winners after goals from Noel Hunt and Jordon Robertson secured a 4th win in 6 matches, taking United to 3rd place in the SPL table.
