McNamara's men had earned much praise for their attacking football during a six-match winning streak, but defeats by St Mirren, St Johnstone and at home to Aberdeen have brought run to a shuddering halt.

United play a confident Hibernian team on Sunday, who arrive at Tannadice on the back of a 2-1 derby victory over Edinburgh rivals Hearts.

McNamara said: "My thoughts on Sunday's match are that we need to win it. We are at home but I think we need to play a lot better than we did against Aberdeen.

"We will need to pass the ball a lot better and hope that the pitch has not taken too much of a battering after the heavy rain during that match on Wednesday.

"We felt the Aberdeen match was a chance to bounce back after the St Johnstone defeat but we didn't take it. The Hibs match is another chance for us to do that.

"We are hurting at the moment but we must dust ourselves down and get ready for Sunday."

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
