As is typically the case, when it is international week, the club news tends to be quiet. As such, there is not a huge amount to cover in the first edition of the Sunday Roundup.
United went into the break on the back of a abject performance at Kilmarnock, losing the game 2-0.
After the match, Jackie McNamara suggested he felt some of the players did not give enough, noting his disappointment.
Still though, the club sits second in the league, I would have bit your hand off for that at the start of the season, hopefully the break gives us plenty of time to reflect and come back stronger.
This week also seen some positive news on the injury front, with both Connor Townsend and John Souttar stepping up their training.
Hull City requested Townsend return to the club for treatment and having spent a month out, hopefully a return to first team action might not be too far off for the left back, who looked to be settling well before the injury.
Still on the playing side of things and it has been quite a week for highly rated youngster Scott Fraser. The midfielder moved on loan to League 1 Airdrieonians on Friday and was handed his first start today in their game versus Brechin, and what a start it was with Fraser taking only 3 minutes to open his account for the club.
And finally, away from the playing side of things and as already noted in the blog earlier this week, the club have announced two fantastic deals for the fans with the festive hat trick and the Motherwell deal being announced.
