Taxi for Neilson. All that money spent and getting a lesson off a team of part timers. Disgraceful. I hope he has a regular meeting with the board yadda yadda yadda.

Nae mugs in this league.

Never been a critic of astroturf before but Utd arent coping with it. Some very random bounces of the ball on that surface.

Last week I noticed that Alloa played a wide game and tended to have players wide on both sides of the pitch. Due to this I wondered how they could do it on their narrowed pitch. However watching I have noticed that they have widened their pitch again. Unlike our game against Utd. Alloa are coping very well with Shankland, but perhaps not so good with McMullan.

If Alloa manage to hold on we must win tomorrow. Its really concerning that teams like Alloa can pick up results against Dundee Utd at home when we never look anywhere near.

We were totally outplayed by United and offered nothing
According to a few on here that was because of the much bigger budget and we shouldn't expect anything else. Just goes to show what good organisation and workrate can achieve.

Making a mockery of all the clowns on here who slated the Pars for not beating Alloa last week.

Alloa and Arbroath are both decent sides and certainly no walkover.

Mon the Pars!!!!!!!!!!!

Are we going to say that about every team we don’t defeat livipar2? We should be winning at home against Alloa. We should be looking to defeat most teams at home this season.

It's almost as if it's a difficult league where there are virtually no easy fixtures.

I mean, it's not as if this has been the case for, what, 25 years or anything.

Exactly, Raymie, and they look a better side under Peter Grant's management. Presumably it was his decision to widen the pitch.

This is a league where any team is capable of beating any other team. The reason? There is no huge difference in the skill levels of players in each team. The bigger teams, e.g. the Dundee teams should have slightly better players and more of them, but on any given day, other factors such as tactics, application, weather, pitches, referees, luck etc can override this advantage. There will be results like tonight all through the season, but ultimately, the slightly better teams should prevail. Anyone that thinks they have a devine right to win a game though is approaching it with the wrong attitude.

Grant has played, coached and managed at a far higher level than the Scottish Championship and I'm in no doubt, that Alloa will benefit from his vast experience

Yorkie you must have missed my post on this thread?? Please look back.
So the part time Alloa team came away with a win.... their tactics (and that’s called tactics) were spot on against a good Dundee Utd.
They made the pitch narrow and Utd flung balls into the box where they dominated.
Can’t wait for tomm

Honestly when I said they made the pitch narrow the team tucked in and made Utd work round them.

It's a great result for Alloa and a dreadful result for Dundee Utd. whereas Saturday was a good result for Alloa and a poor result for us - strange post tbh. As Rastapari said, a competent management team will get results. Let's hope Stevie gets a result today, he needs one. I'm quite hopeful considering how dreadful Morton are at defending.

Alloa widened their pitch from last year. Those of us who sit in the Norrie will have seen the wide players against us. It was interesting to see their goal and how they knew who to pass to. Plus remember the Alloa players will have been at their work yesterday, but they still looked fitter and faster than Utd.
