1987 - Dundee Utd 1-0 Barcelona | UEFA Cup (Quarter Final 1st Leg)

Far from being overawed by the multi-millionaires from Barcelona, Jim McLean's men more than matched the illustrious Spanish side. True, we only hold a single goal lead to take to Spain next week, but the fine first leg performance which almost totally eclipsed Barcelona's twin strike force of Lineker and Hughes, gave considerable hopes of further progress. We got off to the perfect start after only 1 minute 48 seconds. John Holt's throw-in on the right found Paul Sturrock and

1972 - Falkirk 1-1 Dundee Utd | League (Division One)

United found themselves in arrears within a minute of the game getting underway. Hoggan carried the ball to the bye-line and passed the ball back to Abel who crossed and Doug Somner headed home.

In the 11th minute,

1911 - Dundee Utd 4-0 Montrose | Forfarshire Cup (Semi Final)

With the remembrance of their Consolation Cup tie defeat still fresh in their minds, Montrose travelled through to Dundee to meet the Hibs at Tannadice Park with the double intention of taking their revenge and improving their prospects of having their name inscribed on the Forfarshire Cup. The Gable Endies, however, were doomed to disappointment, for they had to acknowledge defeat - and a humiliating defeat it was - by four goals to nil.The Montrose officials, displeased with their club
