1985 - Neuchatel Xamax 3-1 Dundee Utd | UEFA Cup (3rd Round 2nd Leg)

The return leg with the Swiss brought two new European experiences to United. With the sides locked at 3-3 on aggregate at the end of normal time, we went into an extra time situation for the first time ever. It was during that additional 30 minutes that we suffered another novelty when the Portuguese referee awarded a goal when the ball clearly hadn't entered the net. Yet this tie shouldn't really have had to go into extra time because it was United who got off to a flying start with an...


1982 - Dundee Utd 7-0 Kilmarnock | League (Premier Division)

United had just returned from the siege of Bremen where United's thin tangerine line had somehow held firm in the face of awesome aggression from Rudi Voller and his Werder colleagues. That had been enough to allow United to get to the last eight of the UEFA cup for the second successive season. But, league matters were uppermost on United's minds. As a thank you gesture to the fans, the club reduced admission to the terracing by 50p to £1 and Stand prices were dropped from £3 to £2.50. Unfortu...


2004 - Dundee Utd 3-0 Kilmarnock | League (SPL)

After having had their fair share of bad lack and the breaks going against them, Dundee United managed to change their fortunes against Kilmarnock, with two valuable strikes, both with an element of fortune, taking them on their way to a comfortable 3-0 victory. Up to the breakthrough, the visitors had looked the most threatening, but the Tangerines never looked back after Brebner’s long range effort deflected off McIntyre to give the forward his fifth – and surely most fortunate – league strike...


1993 - Rangers 0-3 Dundee Utd | League (Premier Division)

United reached the halfway stage of the League campaign with a stunning victory at Ibrox with both points wrapped up after just 2l minutes by which time the Tangerines were three goals to the good. It took just 24 seconds from the time United kicked-off before Maxwell was picking the ball out out of the net. Billy McKinlay flicked the ball back to Jim McInally who played the ball up the left where Paddy Connolly collected it and turned away from the by-line and delivered a right loot cross from ...


1971 - Dundee Utd 2-2 Ayr Utd | League (Division One)

This marked new manager Jim McLean's first game in charge and his first team selection contained several surprises. Stuart Markland was drafted into the side with Wattie Smith moving to inside-right and Jackie Copland returning to the centre-forward berth and Kenny Cameron moving to outside left. And the new combination started with a real buzz. Kenny Cameron scooped home a Jackie Copland pass after only 8 minutes, but Ayr refused to buckle under an...
