1987 - M'gladbach 0-2 Dundee Utd | UEFA Cup (Semi Final 2nd Leg)

After Barcelona we said it was United's finest hour, well the performance to oust Borussia was the equal, if not the better of the magical happenings in the Camp Nou. The Germans, who had been so confident after their draw at Tannadice, found the United defence in resolute mood with John Holt who was in superb form. After repelling everything that Borussia could muster, a good first half performance was capped by the vital away goal, the least we needed to win the tie. A comer from the left was


1972 - Dundee Utd 2-0 Aberdeen | League (Division One)

After announcing that goalkeeper Don Mackay would be given a free transfer at the end of the season, manager Jim McLean made only one change from last weeks defeat to Ayr United, with Stuart Markland making way for Jim Cameron. United were decked out in their white kit for this one.In the early stages Kopel had a chance but shot over before Harper fire past McAlpine's right hand post at the other end. United were dominating play and Gardner missed a chance in the 16th minute when it seem


2023 - Dundee Utd 2-0 Livingston | League (Premiership)


1996 - Hamilton 0-2 Dundee Utd | League (First Division)

Two second half goals gave United a hard earned victory which took them back to the top of the First Division and relegated luckless Accies. Both Gary McSwegan and Brian Welsh returned to the side after missing the defeat against St Johnstone on the sandy wastes of Firhill. And the condition of the the pitch produced few threatening moments by the Tangerines against an Accies side fighting for their First Division lives. An error by Ferguson almost gave United an 18th minute lead when th


2017 - Dundee Utd 3-2 St Mirren | League (Championship)

Dundee United welcomed relegation threatened St Mirren to Tannadice with the Terrors sitting in third place, only a point behind Falkirk. Despite a poor performance in the goalless draw at Ayr the previous weekend, Ray McKinnon only made one change to his starting line-up from that game with Willo Flood coming back into the side and Lewis Toshney dropping to the bench.United got off to the perfect start in this match, but the opening goal on seven minutes caused serious controversy. Inte


1933 - Brechin City 1-2 Dundee Utd | League (Division Two)



1967 - Dundee Utd 2-2 Partick Th | League (Division One)



1989 - Dundee Utd 1-1 Motherwell | League (Premier Division)

Only a late Paul Hegarty header salvaged a point against a lively Motherwell side and our poor home record continued. Our early pressure failed to pay dividends and there was a warning of things to come when a Kirk header was saved by Billy Thomson. Then it was our turn to threaten when a Charlie Adam attempt was headed off the line by Russell, but two minutes from half time there was a real let off for us when Boyd's shot crashed off the underside of the bar for Billy Thomson to collect. Mother


1922 - Clackmannan 1-1 Dundee Utd | League (Division Two)


1981 - Dundee Utd 2-3 Celtic | League (Premier Division)

Celtic arrived at Tannadice knowing the league title was within their grasp. Following Celtic's win against Rangers the previous week, they needed just a point from this match to clinch the league. Within just two minutes Celtic were on their way to the title. Dundee United were caught cold in the early seconds of the match in front of a huge travelling Celtic support. Kopel made a bad pass on the right and Provan picked up before playing in the on rushing Murdo MacLeod. The midfi


1997 - Dundee Utd 0-1 Kilmarnock | Scottish Cup (Semi Final Replay)

Our Scottish Cup hopes were extinguished by Kilmamock who grabbed a late goal to signal an end of the stalemate. Unlike the first meeting, United took a stranglehold on first half proceedings but lacked that cutting edge in front of goal. A Mark Perry header grazed the top of the bar, but that was about as close as we came to scoring. When Maurice Malpas limped off with a recurrence of his calf strain,you could sense foreboding. Killie started the second half in sprightly fashion, Si


2006 - Inverness CT 1-0 Dundee Utd | League (SPL)

In a quiet first half, made all the more difficult for both sides by a fierce gusting cross-field wind, chances were few and far between, as was attractive football in all honesty. The first chance came through a 30-yard free kick from Charlie Mulgrew, which didn’t quite bend enough as it went wide of Brown’s goal.Inverness’s first opportunity came on nineteen minutes, when a low pass played across the edge of the penalty area found Richie Hart in space, but his low shot from 16 yards wa


1939 - Dundee Utd 3-5 Montrose | League (Division Two)


1970 - Dundee Utd 1-3 Dunfermline | League (Division One)

United's last match of the season meant absolutely nothing with a Fairs Cup place having already been assured with fifth place in the First Division already confirmed. Dunfermline had enjoyed an unusually unhappy term - but their display that night saw the Fifers end it on a particularly high note. Former Dens Parker George McLean turned out to be their match-winner with a couple of early goals to establish the pattern for the night, Ian Scott
