No pragmatism from me - I detest Arabs and want United run into the ground. The night we relegated them at Dens is up there with the birth of my child.  

Didn’t know where to post this but I think this is the perfect place. Yesterday afternoon, I was in The Dundee United club shop, I made sure to not touch anything tangy or that which was a challe

Rumours circulating around the Michelin Plant and some Dundee pubs that United are in deep financial doo doo.

Talk of Admin or even liquidation.

But......they're on their way to yet another cup final....must be 25,000 going to this one, surely?  :o

Oh wait....this is the infamous 'fizzy-pop' cup, the one they made so much fuss about....and they're playing either the wee Saintees team heading for the 3rd tier, or an even wee-er Saintees team from Wales. Will they fill McDairmid, or maybe Airdrie?  

Sadly, however, I'd be astonished if there really was any chance of them in Administration.

I'd enjoy it, though ;)

If our admins are anything to go by, financial meltdowns arrive out of the blue in the media and hit you in the stomach rather than starting as rumours on factory floors.

If United were on the brink then I'd expect those involved would want to keep their cards close to their chest until the press had to be told.

There were loads of rumours flying around prior to both our Admins mate.

It's not going to happen. The story gets recycled every 6 months.

This.

The money they owe is apparently to a United fan. If he were to go about handling the situation in this way, he'd be crippling the club he supports and then on top of that, put them in a situation where they could severely reduce the amount of money he would be receiving.

As long as their tax is up to date then they will be fine. Maybe a reduced budget for next season but will comfortably be the biggest in the division if they stay down and Hibs come up.

If they are defaulting on loan payments to "united minded lender(s)".. said lender(s) could see it as an opportunity to enforce some change at the sticklebrick by calling them in. 

Lots and lots of companies enter administration without any monies owed to HMRC. Inabilty to pay creditors is reason enough.
