Butcher, who recently arrived at Tannadice from Hayes and Yeading, believes the positive approach will reap rewards.

"I don't think there's a team like us just, now the way we play," the United centre-back said.

"You should see us in training. We are always focusing on attacking football and there's loads of talent to go with it.

"I'm sure there's going to be loads of goals in us this season. I think everyone is going to be scared of us. It's such an exciting prospect.

"I like to play it out from the back as do the other guys so we won't just be launching it up the field. We've obviously got to keep things tight at the back but we will be going forward a lot."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
