Gary Mackay-Steven put the hosts ahead in the 52nd minute but Richard Brittain levelled eight minutes from time to leave United still without a win at Tannadice since August.

Houston said: "We needed a second goal to kill them off and, to be fair, it was a wonder strike from Brittain.

"But I can't fault the players for their attitude and commitment. It's just that the home record might be a mental thing for them.

"We played some decent stuff in the second half but sometimes these things are set to try us.

"Hopefully, though, we can mend the home record as soon as we can.

"Our away form is good but if we could just sort the home thing it would be great and make a difference."

Meanwhile, Houston is promising business as usual as the Tayside club step up their search for a new manager after he revealed recently he would be leaving in the summer.

He said: "I'm ignoring all speculation. I've declared I'm going and that gives me five months for the board of directors to find a new manager.

"So they have to get a head start on their work to ensure they get the right person.

"I'll carry on as normal. I'm contracted until May and want to get the team into Europe for the fourth season running."

his isn't directed at Van Gaal in particular, but, let's be honest, you don't have to be a tactical genius to beat Arsenal at the moment do you? I will say one thing...he put Van Persie on Monreal deliberately? Our Robin hardly had a touch did he? So did that really work? Hmmm....I'd stick to substituting Keepers (yes,yes, it was directed towards him in the end....)

hat a load of Bull***t. DiMaria hardly had a kick and they won because of a dodgy offside and a breakaway goal when Arsenal were chasing. Good luck to them they got their points but to try and claim this as some sort of tactical masterstroke is laughable, It was luck pure and simple.

Equating Rodgers To Hodgson. Oh Dear Me.

It's a Mailbox many will have been waiting. Brendan Rodgers gets a little bit of a stick, but there is at least praise for Manchester United,Van Gaal, Palace and Tottenham...

Oh Arsenal. Why Oh Why Oh Effing Why?

We have plenty of fallout from Arsenal's latest display of outrageous incompetence, plus the question of why every team seems to be getting worse. Plus, another Garcia ghost goal...
