Timeline

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Grzegorz was a Polish international who had been with a number of clubs in his home country. He was at Tannadice for only a short time but became a cult figure with the fans. Signed from Sturm Graz in Austria, as cover for his injured countryman Lukasz Zaluska he remained as first choice keeper until he left United in the January 2008 transfer window to sign for Preston North End.

  • Boss Craig Levein handed competitive debuts to Grzegorz Szamotulski, Darren Dods and Willo Flood for the eagerly awaited curtain raiser at home to Aberdeen. Missing through suspension was Lee Wilkie giving Garry Kenneth a chance to make an impression with a starting place at centre back. With Mark Kerr nursing a calf injury David Robertson was chosen to partner Barry Robson and Morgaro Gomis in centre midfield while Steven Robb was preferred ahead of Craig Conway on the left flank, although the ex-Ayr winger was still listed on the bench. For Aberdeen there was a debut for ex-Celtic man Jackie McNamara in defence while fellow new boys, former Terror Lee Mair and Jeffrey De Visscher were named on the bench.

  • Last Appearance - Dundee United 4 - 1 Hearts

    Craig Levein made two changes to the starting eleven that leaked five goals at Motherwell at the weekend, with David Robertson and new signing Danny Grainger stepping in for Prince Buaben and Jordan Robertson. Stephen Frail took charge of Hearts for the first time as caretaker manager, and brought in Andrius Velicka and Saulius Mikoliunas at the expense of the injured Ibrahim Tall and Kestutis Ivaskevicius.
