Sadly, Dundee United were held to a 0-0 draw with Airdrieonians.
Our Scottish correspondent doesnt appear to have his finger on the pulse of Scottish soccer.

Far from "sadly", the Terrors confirmed their return to the top flight of Scottish football with the draw.

Yes, but the Tangerines should have marked their move up with flair and confirmed their standing with a lopsided victory.

Dundee U are rubbish, same as Dundee FC and most things Dundonian. Best thing about Dundee is the bypass. They'll be relegated again next season. They're worse than Burnley (if such a thing is possible).

Their uniform colours are nice, and the city has some outstanding street names. They should top the League next year. You can't help but cheer them on.

I've had many great nights out in Dundee. With Carnoustie just down the road and St Andrews across the bridge it's a great location for golfers.

I also had my most memorable business meeting at Dens Park being harangued by an excitable foreign footballer.

Add to that Dundee Utd were the 4th part of my 2023/4 football accumulator to come in and, you can see why I was so upset at LYM glossing over Uniteds great achievement. Now if only Celtic, Real Madrid, Bolton and (sadly) Leeds win the leagues or are promoted and, I'll be in the money

Apparently, the game of golf was invented at Carnoustie. I have been to the old Church at Panmure, Carnoustie, Brechin City (met the Laird of Brechin Castle) and Dundee. A weasel nearly knocked me over on the Castle grounds. I really liked Angus.

Dundee U. had a great year, and one has to feel happy for their success. However, I was hoping they could win big.
Good luck with Leeds, and in getting your hands on some more money.

Fingers crossed then.

Dundee?

Meh...

Winning the Highland Cup is a notable accomplishment, and it sounds like the game against Buckie Thistle was a memorable one.

Jock soccer, formally known as Joccer (rhymes with shocker).

Which it is. But next season should be more interesting after Scotland lifts the Euros.

All of Scotland’s matches at Euro 2024 will be telecast on the Sony Sports Network. The matches will also be live-streamed on the SonyLIV app.

Winning the Highland Cup is a notable accomplishment, and it sounds like the game against Buckie Thistle was a memorable one. Celebrating these moments helps keep the spirit of competition alive in local football. Similarly, the recent match between sudeva delhi fc v tarun sangha fc showcased some exciting talent in another lesser-followed league. These kinds of matches might not grab global headlines, but they are fundamental in developing local talent and keeping the community spirit of football thriving.

Wouldn't it be nice if Scotland pulls off the upset and destroys the heavily favoured Hungarians? It will keep alive the dream final of Scotland vs. England.
[History beckons if Scotland can find dynamic and passionate performance
If Steve Clarke’s side beat Hungary in Stuttgart, they will – probably – become the first Scotland team to qualify for the knockout stage of a major tournament
Michael Grant, Scottish Football Correspondent
Sunday June 23 2024, 12.01am BST, The Times

If Scotland beat Hungary they will be on four points in group A, which should be enough to reach the last 16.

He will always have Belgrade. For the rest of his days only one thing will ever come to mind for Steve Clarke when anyone mentions the Serbian capital. That was where he had the breakthrough result of his managerial career when Scotland won on penalties to qualify for Euro 2020. After 22 years the wait to qualify was over. Clarke and his team always wanted more, though. If he will always have Belgrade, might he also always have Stuttgart?

The city’s football stadium was once named in honour of Adolf Hitler. It hosted games at the 1974 and 2006 World Cups, as well as the 1959 and 1988 European Cup finals. So it has history. What it can also become is a sacred venue for tens of thousands of Scots who long to be able to say “I was there” for a famous result. They have invaded the city in Baden-Württemberg, mobbing its pubs for beer and shelter as the rain lashed down yesterday, to will Scotland to something it has never achieved before. Beat Hungary and they will — probably — qualify for the knockout stage of a major tournament for the first time. It is not guaranteed because they may still finish the group with a negative goal difference but no team with four points has failed to go through since the qualification format was relaxed for Euro 2016.

The final match of Clarke’s playing career was against Stuttgart — in the 1998 European Cup Winners’ Cup final — and now the biggest achievement of his managerial life might be in Stuttgart. Only Andy Roxburgh, Jock Stein and Craig Brown had more games in charge of Scotland than Clarke, who is on 55 and counting, but none of them managed what is within his grasp tonight. He has two tournament qualifications on his CV and now, on day 1,861 in the job, he might pull off the sort of feat that would merit a street being named after him in his native Saltcoats./quote]
