What do we have here then?  Well, this is The Arab Blog.  As the title suggests, it is a blog that follows Scottish SPL team Dundee United F.C.

It is written by me, Chuck (It’s a nickname), a lifelong supporter of Dundee United. I have been a season ticket holder since I was six, and have followed through the good and the down right rotten.

Where did the idea for this blog come from?  Well I suppose it wasn’t so much an inspired idea, more that I just want to impose my opinion on anyone who actually cares to read.  If you don’t like it, that’s fine, leave a comment we can get into a discussion, that’s the point of this site (that probably sounds cheekier that it is supposed to!)

So, what can you expect to find on here?

  • Match Previews – All the build to all the matches.  Match Previews will be posted the day before the game.
  • Match Reports – Match report on every United game.  These will be posted on match day after the game or the following day.
  • Match Reaction – After all is calm following a match (and I am thinking straight again) my view on the match will be available, mostly likely a couple of days after the match.
  • News – Any news coming out of Tannadice, expect to find it here.
  • Rumours – I scour my sources (some good, some wayward) for any inside info I can get.  It may not always be right, but most of the time it is.
  • Player Profiles – A new feature I am starting will be a player profile.  It maybe be a current squad player it may be a legend.  Expect to see these appear around the middle of the week.
  • Opinions – Yup, with all of the above, my opinion will be plastered all over it.  If it wasn’t, this would just be a boring old news site.

Now, I do try to keep the site updated as much a possible but I do have a life.  Unfortunately I have to work, I do like to go out and about and the Mrs requires attention from time to time (usually when the football is on… Women eh?!) but you can expect updates on here almost every day.

If it is all quiet on the Tangerine front, there may be nothing posted as it seems pretty pointless posting any old rubbish, I only write quality material (!)

And finally, before I bore you to tears, If you would like to write an article for the site, I am more than happy to have a look at it and look into publishing it.   It can be anything from an opinion piece to you favourite United memories.
