As all Dundee United fans will be aware our club is presently defending its rightful place at the top table of the SPFL. This is a place that was earned by winning Promotion from last seasons Championship.
What the club are now being subjected too, through no fault of their own, is proving to be an extremely costly episode and one that they could have done without.
Could the club have pulled out of the arbitration process? Yes, possibly, but given what is at stake the club feel that to not defend their position, against the Heart of Midlothian and Partick Thistle petition, is simply not an option.
As a result of this, Dundee United, along with Raith Rovers and Cove Rangers, have reached out to other fellow member clubs to support them in defending this action as it can potentially have grave consequences, not just for Dundee United, but for all member clubs.
The club had suggested that they were intending running a crowd funding page in order to raise some funds to help cover the costs of the Legal bills that they face but myself and Andy Crichton have decided that we will try our best to do our bit.
We have agreed to walk from Tynecastle to Tannadice on Saturday 18th July 2020.
We expect that this journey will take us the best part of 18 hours, but we are looking forward to the challenge. The route that we will take will be from Tynecastle to the Forth Road Bridge (the auld ane). From there we will walk through the Great Kingdom of Fife, and onwards to the Tay Road Bridge. Once there, we will lock eyes on Tannadice and then we will continue, possibly at a snails pace by then, to make our way towards Tannadice Street.
Why Tynecastle you ask? Well, they are one of the teams that have served these Court papers on our club and it’s closer than Firhill.
Once fees are paid to GoFundMe every single penny raised will then go straight to Dundee United as soon as allowed.
This is something that Andy and myself, two lifelong Arabs, are really looking forward to doing and, if nothing else, it will be a good laugh.
We fully understand that you may want to simply donate straight to Dundee United yourself and we have absolutely no problem with that.
Many thanks for visiting this page and thank you in advance if you have been kind enough to sponsor us.
