Dundee United courting danger?

Sorry bad pun for title. Dundee have announced new manager as Tam Courts who's only real experience was at Kelty Hearts and one game last season when everyone else was self isolating. Is this some left field master stroke or something else? Time will tell. Reading between the lines he knows the youth players well and United want to promote the youth players so that's why he has the job. Can't say this excites me as an appointment but if he keeps United up and does it without making eyes bleed it will be an improvement.

Could be worse your club could be bigging up some nobody from halfway round the world as Peps idol.

You have at least appointed someone.

Don't know if you have heard but Celtic have been without a manager for 103 days.

They are also the only club without one in the top 4 leagues in Scotland

Excellent pun in the title.

Minimum expectation should be staying up playing better football and putting six past Barry's team again. Though I reckon that lot will actually do quite well this season.

Massive gamble but at the same time nice to see a club break the monotonous managerial merrygoround most make do with.

Mmmmm…..

It’s not ideal but still a long way to go to beat the Scottish record of 217 days without a permanent manager.

Wonder what the most days as caretaker manager is? Murty must be up there but there is a few you can remember always being the guy that takes over between managers

Go on, you know the 217 days was the Murty / Nicholl combo.

TBH there might have been a longer one but I was just at the wum.

These rushed appointments never work out. Much better to just sit back and wait for some guy to fall out of the shower...

Its safe to say the jury is out on this appointment....

What this reminds me of is the club across the road signing all these big names, hoping to recruit big transfer fees. They did get a big fee, several millions of pounds which put them into administration.

Hope the same fate or worse doesn't happen to DUFC.
