Timeline


  • Date of Birth

    Alan was born on this date in Glasgow.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Signed from Partick Thistle, Alan never missed a competitive match for United over the next two years and collected a runners-up medal in the Scottish Cup final against Celtic in May 2005. He rejoined Partick Thistle in January 2007.

  • The SPL campaign kicked off at Tannadice Park with the visit of Hibernian. Six debuts for Ian McCall's side after a close season spent adding to the squad.

  • 50th Appearance - Kilmarnock 5 - 2 Dundee United

    Lars Hirschfeld continued in goal in place of the injured Tony Bullock and was determined to build on his performance against Clyde in midweek. The back four lined up with Stuart Duff and Alan Archibald flanking the central duo of David McCracken and Chris Innes. Mark Wilson had been passed fit and started the game at right midfield with Grant Brebner, Derek McInnes and Barry Robson completing the midfield select. Up front Jim McIntyre was partnered by Andy McLaren.

  • 50th League Appearance - Dundee United 1 - 2 Dunfermline

    United made the brighter start and were rewarded with the opening goal in 8 minutes. Uncertainty in the Dunfermline defence led to McIntyre breaking clear and, after he was brought down by visiting keeper Derek Stillie, Referee Clark awarded a deserved penalty. Mark Wilson stepped up to take the kick and was rewarded with his third goal of the season, slotting calmly into the bottom right corner. United were given little time to celebrate though, as Dunfermline stunned the hosts with an immediate equaliser. Richie Byrne found space down the left and Andy Tod poked his cross into the far corner of the net. United reacted well however and proceeded to create several first half chances, with Karim Kerkar and Jason Scotland causing many problems for the Dunfermline rearguard. Dunfermline also threatened, with Barry Nicholson coming close before Darren Young wasted a good chance to put his side ahead. It was McIntyre who came the closest to scoring for United right on the stroke of half time, but his curling shot was tipped superbly over the bar by Stillie when a goal looked certain.

  • 100th Appearance - Dundee United 0 - 0 Kilmarnock

    United started in 3-5-2 formation, with a defensive innovation which saw the left-sided Alan Archibald start on the right side of defence, and Paul Ritchie moving to the left, leaving David McCracken as the spare man. Killie started in their usual 4-4-2 format, with Kris Boyd looking to continue his recent good form against the Tangerines.

  • The atmosphere before kick off was electric but sadly the on field action struggled to live up to the hype during a tentative first half. Aberdeen were doing most of the pressing and allowing the United midfield little time on the ball. The best chance of the half fell to Richard Foster, who screwed a shot wide of the right post after being set up by a Darren Mackie breakaway. All the Tangerines could muster in the half was a David Fernandez shot on the angle which was never going to trouble visiting keeper Jamie Langfield.

  • 100th League Appearance - Celtic 3 - 3 Dundee United

    Following his transfer from Tannadice under a fortnight ago, Gordon Strachan handed Mark Wilson his Celtic debut against his former side. The only other change to the Celtic side which beat Motherwell last weekend was the reintroduction of Ross Wallace at left back in place of Mo Camara, who dropped to the bench. Following a quicker than expected recovery from his hamstring injury, Roy Keane also took up a place among the substitutes. With his own injury adding to the unavailability of the injured Paul Ritchie and the on-loan Charlie Mulgrew, Craig Brewster had to reshuffle his starting eleven for his second game in charge. From the side which picked up a point against Aberdeen last weekend, in came Barry Robson to replace Mulgrew at left back, and Collin Samuel for Lee Miller, who dropped to the bench.

  • Last Appearance - Dundee United 3 - 2 St Mirren

    David Robertson was the hero for United as his injury time strike cancelled out a St Mirren comeback from two goals down, sending the Terrors into a 4th round meeting with Inverness.
