Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Armand was born on this date in Tongeren, Belgium.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Armand joined United from MVV Maastricht in Holland following a successful trial during the Club's pre-season games at Brechin and Leicester City. Despite promising start where he played a few first team matches, his contract was cancelled. After a lengthy process, an appeal against the contract cancellation was upheld.

  • A great start to United's new campaign on their return to the Premier Division wasn't capitalised upon. With the Motherwell defence caught napping, Gary McSwegan sent a diving header past Scott Howie from Ray McKinnon's free kick to make it 1-0 in five minutes. More chances fell United's way, but they failed to take them and midway through the half, the visitors finally came to life. Only a finger-tip save by Ally Maxwell kept out Billy Davies first time shot through a ruck of players. However, the move of the match ended when Gary McSwegan shot past after great work by Dave Bowman and Owen Coyle.

  • Last Appearance - Dundee United 1 - 0 Aberdeen

    The goal which won the match may have carried a slice of luck, but no one could argue that we weren't due a break after the way things had gone earlier in the season. Maurice Malpas made his first appearance of the season and it was no coincidence that the defence kept their first clean sheet with the player/coaches steadying influence back in evidence.
