Match Report

Until Dundee United discover a worthy successor to "General" Jimmy Walker it would seem that their chance of making good in the Scottish League race is not just the sort of chance that attracts the backer.

Never was the rallying influence of a good "General" more missed than against Kilmarnock. United got the lead, lost it again, and then they were playing as if they could regain it the one vital force was lacking - the "General", the main to direct operations. Every habitué of Tannadice know show last season's "General", by dint of clever and forceful football and unflagging enterprise, showed unmistakably the way to goal and led his men many times to greater things when he sensed them as being in the mood. Such a personality is not included in the Tannadice ranks this season, and it is a pity.
