Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Lauri was born on this date in Kontiolahti, Finland.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    As a product of JIPPO and Internazionale, Lauri had been with Liverpool and then Fulham. He had also been at Bournemouth on loan before he joined United on a loan deal.

  • Following on from a disappointing 1-0 home defeat to Dunfermline Athletic the previous week, Peter Houston’s side were now under pressure to start recording some wins after an indifferent start to the season. Up next was a trip to Perth and the United manager made two changes to his starting line-up for the first Tayside Derby of the new season. With Jon Daly ruled out through injury Houston gave a starting debut to new signing Lauri Dalla Valle: a Finnish Under-21 striker on loan from Fulham. Houston also gave young midfielder Stuart Armstrong a place in the starting eleven with Scott Robertson dropping to the bench.

  • It was a big day a Tannadice with Dundee United legend Jim McLean present for the official renaming of the Fair Play Stand which would now be known was ‘The Jim McLean Fair Play Stand’. Normally given to away supporters, the stand was for this match only opened for United fans to celebrate the renaming with the small clutch of travelling Inverness fans moved to the Jerry Kerr Stand. On the playing side of things United were still looking for their first home win of the season following two draws and two defeats in their opening four games at Tannadice. Peter Houston made one change to his starting line-up from the previous week’s disappointing 1-0 defeat at home to Rangers: Johnny Russell suspended following his sending off in that match with Ryan Dow making his first start of the season in his place. Club captain Jon Daly who had missed the previous two matches through injuries made a return to the substitutes bench.

  • Peter Houston made two changes to his starting line-up from the bitterly disappointing defeat on penalties to Falkirk during midweek. Centre half Garry Kenneth failed a late fitness test, meaning skipper Jon Daly had to step back to the centre of defence to partner Gavin Gunning, with his place up front being taken by Johnny Russell, who had come on and scored against the Bairns. The only other change from the midweek cup exit was youngster Ryan Dow coming in for Barry Douglas who dropped onto the bench.Despite the recent disappointing run in the league, where United had only won once in the previous 10 matches and also suffered that League Cup quarter final exit, the players came out to a rousing reception from a strong away support that packed three sections of the stand behind Dusan Pernis’s goal.

  • United matched their hosts by lining up in 4-4-2 formation, with Johnny Russell partnering Jon Daly up front. The starting eleven showed two changes from the side that faced Aberdeen with Willo Flood replacing Robbie Neilson at right back, and Garry Kenneth coming in to partner Sean Dillon at centre half in place of Gavin Gunning.
