Damian Casalinuovo: Dundee United facing hefty compensation bill

The Scottish Premier League club are battling against the ruling from football's world governing body FIFA.

Casalinuovo moved to Tannadice in 2009, scoring seven goals in 25 appearances, before going out on loan to Raith Rovers and then joining Hamilton Academical in 2010.

United chairman Stephen Thompson said: "It's been all the way through FIFA, we've now appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

"It's in the past and I'm not going to blame anybody for anything, because I don't really know who was to blame at the time."

Casalinuovo scored eight goals for United before joining Hamilton for the 2010/11 season.

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
