Hi guys,

Hope you don't mind me putting something not directly Rangers related but thought it would be pleasing for you to hear and it does potentially have importance to us if it ends up in us getting a vote on something.

Dundee United are going into administration on Friday. During the time they took the piss out of us and were getting lauded as the best run club in Scotland, they attempted to restructure their debt but the continuing massive deficit has really put them in trouble and they have ended up exceeding the limit on the group of local investors who helped them out.

Their stadium has gone into other hands and isn't an asset and their training ground was previously sold off.

To put it simply - they are ****ed. Thompson is making them sign confidentiality agreements and running off. His sister has been trying to avoid it and hates his guts but the situation has went well out of her control.

They always like telling their rival fans that there is only one team in Dundee, it seems that may be coming true :)

Never nice to see a team go into administration, even if it's run by a complete arse.

I've lived in Dundee since moving here for uni and been working for a company here that does a lot of work with people from the club (in an administrative capacity is all I can say but quite a bit of money is involved so we like to keep track of their health) .

For the last couple of years, there's been quite a bit of news about United's finances that has been trickling around the people who are close to the club or any of the Thompson family and we've heard that relayed to us when we've asked a few of the more junior staff questions in confidence.

We've been getting a bit of information at a time but the fuller picture has emerged and we're starting to see where the trouble has come from.

The talk is actually more widespread here than being made out to be and their supporters club has knowledge at the top level. Jim Spence wrote an article suggesting they merge with Dundee a few days ago which I find interesting timing so I think he knows too but have never met him so don't know for sure.

I wouldn't wish that upon any team given the mess we have been in, are in and will continue to be in for the foreseeable.

Difficult to gauge if this is a genuine post or not, I certainly hope so.

It is horrible to see any club get into financial trouble, we all know how that feels! but with Dundee United it is different.

They (he) were the loudest advocates for us to be kicked out of football altogether let alone 'demoted' to the 4th division so as my auld Granny used to say 'Let hell slap it into them'

I bet they wish they had 4 years worth of back dated Rangers matches attendance money now.

How could you wish that on any team? Aren't you all tired of Sevco jokes etc.? Gary you're a joke.

The Arabs deserve a club to support, Thomson is a crook. He would have fitted in perfectly with the likes of Green. Hope they don't go bust, I also moved to Dundee for uni and despite preferring Dundee (played with Nicky Low and adored big Harkins) it would be a disaster for them. They still pull great crowds. Having said that I would love Morton to go up so that would help.

Anyway, I would be surprised.

People are allowed to have their opinion and its understandable there is a grudge there. But I wouldn't wish what happened to us on any club. Its a shame on the fans. Hopefully its at worse just admin and they don't go burst completely. Be difficult to come back from for them.

To be fair even taking financial stuff out the picture I think a one dundee team would be great. If the fans could get behind the idea, they could become another Hearts or Aberdeen.

I think merging a few teams close to each other could benefit the Scottish game to be honest. Would let teams fill their stadiums and be more competitive.

But its all down to what is acceptable to fans. let's face it we/ they would ever want to become a rantic fan

Sick if the sevco jokes coming from Arabs, sheep and the likes let them suffer they were rapid to stick the knife in us so I'm within my rights to laugh when they go Tits up and savour the moment when they suffer. Spoc it's called karma

It's within your rights, yes. And it's within others rights to disassociate themselves from you for utilising your right of expression.

To think that someone would be happy for a Scottish footballing institution to go into administration and subject it's thousands of supporters to the kind of mystery that we have endured for the last few years is absurd. It's not their fault that their Chairman is a tool and their club is, perhaps, in jeopardy.

No wonder some people can't stand Rangers' fans when attitudes like that are displayed. We're not out the woods yet and need all the help we can get - from whatever quarter.
