    For Arabian Ian. He cheered us on during the season on our way to promotion. His beloved
    Dundee United beat Inverness Cally Thistle 3-0 tonight (4-0 on aggregate) at Tannadice Park
    and will now play the winners of the other 2nd leg game, Queen of the South or Raith Rovers
    in the final. Well done the Arabs.

    The bottom premiership club...Dundee... is relegated, the 2nd and 3rd bottom play off to face Dundee United who are basically winners of the championship play off. Arabian Ian will be able to explain it better than me:)

    I'll try and explain. Bottom prem goes down. Top champ goes up.
    4th in champ plays 3rd. Winner plays 2nd. Then winner goes on to play prem 2nd bottom team. All ties are home and away.
    So as it now stands DUFC are at home first to either St Mirren or Hamilton. Their final league positions will be determined today.
    Play off games are Thursday night then Sunday afternoon.
    Hope this helps.

    Have to say mate, the SFA are probably the only Association that could invent such an
    unfair system. To me, you were second and deserved to go up. St Mirren were dire and
    deserved to go down. As an Arab, I would be miffed if we lost to St Mirren, meaning that we
    stayed down. Hope it doesn't come to that Ian and you eventually do go up.

    Donny. The system is designed to make promotion as difficult as possible. Making the top league a bit of a closed shop.
    Remember DUFC were in full agreement of this system never thinking that one day we would be having to battle through it toget up. Unfortunately we are where we are because of 1 greedy and incompetent chairman who sold all the talent for his own personal use. Thankfully he is now gone and we are slowly recovering.

    Donny. It's St Mirren in our double header final. They beat Dundee 3-2. Lol. But Hamilton beat St Johnstone 2-0 so ensuring that they remain in the Premier League.

    Good luck, old mate. A promotion double would be great and I think United can clinch it.
