Dundee United under Mixu Paatelainen are an improving team.
I don’t think there can be any argument about that.
I am, however, still very worried over their current plight.
Against St Johnstone last weekend the Tangerines were much better than they’ve been for most of the season.
They were well organised and up for the fight.
That was encouraging.
What I can’t escape from, though, is the fact they lost.
This time it was a couple of basic errors that cost them dear.
In other games defeat has been caused by all-round poor performances.
Either way, it amounts to the same thing — a loss.
What United need to start doing is picking up points — whether they play well or not.
