Colin Nish was shown a straight red card for a challenge on Paul Dummett when the match was still goalless and a double from Steven Thompson - either side of a Ryan Conroy penalty for Dundee - and a first Saints goal for Dougie Imrie settled the issue.

Smith said: "I've not seen it again but anybody who knows Colin Nish knows he's not got a malicious tackle in him.

"He's a big gentle giant. I find it hard for it to be a sending-off knowing him, but the referee has got a decision to make and that's what he made.

"It was a case of still having something to fight for and we fought for it. Unfortunately, we lost two goals near the end."

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.
