Hadn't really noticed it!

Watch the next time Deek takes a corner, he ALWAYS places it just outside the quadrant (i love that word!).

I remember chuckling at ER last season vs Hertz, Nade got so pi**ed off every time and kept pointing it out to the ref, who really couldn't care less. My missus then went on to point it out every time he did it and was laughing at Deek (she loves his swagger!)

For anyone like me (and I assume that will now be a few) who are supporting the US in the World Cup, it's encouraging to see how bloody well DaMarcus Beasely is playing just now. Absolute wonder goal to put Rangers 0-1 up.

Those Rangers fans attending the match tonight are scabs. They are putting self interest before the greater good and allowing clubs like Dundee United to shaft our support. They should hang their heads in shame. I've not missed a game home or away for 4 years but I'm not there tonight."

Yes, but Rangers are now 5 points ahead of us. Why lower our aspiration level?

Because we play them in a couple of weeks at ER and will cut it back to 2 points? I'm also fairly confident they're going to drop more points over Christmas with their schedule!

Because 3rd is a far more realistic expectation IMO

I'd rather be chasing as well so you would really want United to win then eh ?? We would go down a place but we'd be no further away from second....

No. I'd rather be chasing Rangers for second with Utd behind us, albeit from a distance, rather than chase Utd for third................don't put words in my mouth please.:greengrin

Think its a combination of rangers being better than they're given credit for and Utd being over rated.

Can't believe the manager of this Utd team is the favourite to get the scotland job.

In fact, the ball isn't out of the corner box. Law 9. (http://www.fifa.com/mm/document/affederation/federation/81/42/36/lawsofthegameen.pdf)

Even if there is no leather touching the line, the ball is not deemed to have crossed it unless there is an actual gap between the ball and the line when viewed from directly above.

That's the best way I can explain it.

The subject of many a debate during 5-a-side games where 'was the ball inside or outside the box' usually detremines the outcome of the game. THe whole ball has to cross the line :agree::greengrin

Birmingham up to 6th. :dizzy:

Anyone see Benitez' miss at the end??

And the 'clearance' off the line from Larsson? Just smacks him in the puss. :greengrin

Great finish to the match, how Benitez missed I don't know.

Great save by Robinson at the end as well - he should be a certainty for the England world Cup squad. Him and Joe Hart are both excellent keepers.

Would have preferred a draw but a Rangers win was the next best outcome for us.

Dundee Utd were absolutely awful tonight, really surprised by how bad they were, it could easily have been a lot worse for them.

On the other side of the border, that's Man Utd level on points with Chelsea after winning 3-0 tonight against Wolves. :thumbsup:

I've not seen enough of them this season so couldn't comment on the number of points he's saved them but I've got to agree - when you've got to play Dods/Kenneth/Wilkie as his replacement you're going to be worse off.

I hope we don't have similar problems when we lose Bamba for a month.

I doubt that 0-3 hunnery drubbing will have done Levein's Scotland chances a lot of good.

I really dont get this despondancy that we will only get third at best this season.We finished 6th last year and if anybody had told me after 15 games we would be 5 points off the top,2 ahead of the 4th placed team(and a goal difference better to the tune of 6)9 ahead of 5th,11 ahead of the dons and a whopping 15 ahead of 7th i wouldnt have been absolutely delighted with our season.Ee have only lost 10 goals yet some people slate maka for losing a goal that was clearly a foul when he had in fact a very good game.we should ignore the hype of the so called title race and concentrate on ourselves.We drew at killie yet so did rangers but nothing said but that we dropped two points.
We are having a very good season and as yogi says one game at a time.The dons game is a tricky one,as it always is,but if we do draw its not two points dropped by 1 point gained from a draw.Lets give yogi and the team credit for a cracking start to the season and after all surely europe was the target at the start of the season.

:top marks I agree with what you say....

BUT.... with the league being such a poor standard right now and the OF there for the taking, now is the best chance in 20 years of doing something.

The standards may be declining but the old firm still have far better squads than we have.The likes of mendez was missing from rangers last night along with mcgregor and brown etc have been missing from celtic.If we had the team from early 2000 with sauzee latapy etc i would have expected a big challenge but we dont have the strength in depth and if we lost say deek and liam miller for a few weeks we would really struggle.Also remember there is a big turnaround in players since last season and weve only played 15 games.
Id love to think we could challenge the top two but more realistically 3rd or 4th is our target.Utd over the last few years seem to hit a bad patch and drop away for a while so hopefully this is the start of it happening to them.We have 4 tough games coming up and 7/8 points would be a very good haul to get meaning we would be on 36/37 points at the halfway stage of the season which would have been dreamland at the start of the season.
