1958 - Dundee Utd 4-1 Berwick | League (Division Two)


1969 - Dundee Utd 3-1 St Mirren | League (Division One)

A first-half stalemate did little to satisfy a Tannadice crowd which had seen United dominate from the first whistle, but failing to turn that pressure into tangible reward. And the picture looked even grimer when Saints took a shock lead just four minutes into the second period, Pinkerton sneaking the visitors into the lead. United were stung into action, but it wasn't until the 70th minute that Alan Gordon found a way through the tight Pais


2008 - Dundee Utd 2-0 St Mirren | League (SPL)

More than 11,000 United fans packed Tannadice to pay their respects to chairman Eddie Thompson, and late goals from Roy O’Donovan and Craig Conway ensured a fitting tribute to ‘Mr Dundee United’, with a 2-0 win.A minutes’ silence before the game and some of Mr Thompson’s favourite songs before kick-off, including The Beatles and Rod Stewart, ensured an emotional atmosphere for the 11,378 fans inside the ground.But the first-half offered little in the way of clear-cut chances, wit


1997 - Dundee Utd 2-1 Rangers | League (Premier Division)

We couldn't stop Negri from scoring again, but more importantly, we inflicted Rangers first defeat in the league and at the same time posted a confidence boosting second successive win. Uncharacteristically, Andy Goram was at fault with both goals, Robbie Winters dispossessing him to net the opener and the international keeper bringing down Steven Pressley enabling the defender to net the winner from the spot The winning margin could easily have been greater with three highly presentable


1913 - Dundee Utd 2-1 East Stirling | Qualifying Cup (3rd Round Replay)


1986 - Hearts 2-2 Dundee Utd | League (Premier Division)

A last minute goal by Paul Sturrock enabled us to sneak a point and draw level with Celtic at the top of the table. Tynecastle has become a difficult place for any side to win at, with Hearts unbeaten on their own patch for some 17 months. Conditions weren't easy with a blustery wind causing difficulties. After some early pressure by us, Hearts came into the game with Wayne Foster and Gary Mackay both having good efforts before John Colquhoun's dipping volley put them ahead. The home side looked


2011 - Dundee Utd 2-2 Falkirk | League Cup (4th Round)

Having overcome Airdrie in the previous round, United were drawn against First Division Falkirk at Tannadice in the League Cup Quarter Final. Peter Houston stuck with the same side that had drawn 0-0 at home to St Johnstone at the weekend with out of sorts Johnny Russell left once again on the bench. Unsurprisingly United had the better of the chances in the first half against their lower league opposition and after only 11 minutes, Scott Robertson headed just wide of the target. Howev



2014 - Inverness CT 1-0 Dundee Utd | League (Premiership)

Off the field events during the week ensured at least one change would be required by United boss Jackie McNamara for the match with Inverness. Indeed the Manager elected to make no more changes than that. Paul Paton's omission meant that for the first team this season the robust partnership of the Northern Ireland international and John Rankin had to be dismantled. Ryan Dow came into the side for United. Caley were forced into a change with Ryan Christie suspended after receiving his marching o


1980 - Dundee Utd 1-3 Aberdeen | League (Premier Division)

This was an aggressive local derby, but the scoreline didn't do justice to United's attacking efforts. United got off to a great start with a goal in the 4th minute. Eamonn Bannon pulled down Billy Kirkwood's long high free-kick in a crowded box and teammate Paul Sturrock whipped the ball off his toes to crash in a fine opener. This stung the Dons into action and within six minutes they drew level. Gordon Strachan cut off a stray pass back fro


2005 - Aberdeen 2-0 Dundee Utd | League (SPL)

The first half of the match was a fairly even contest with both sides looking dangerous on the break. Nicholson had a very good chance for Aberdeen after only five minutes but United came back into the game and twice went close through efforts from David Fernandez. The final ten minutes of the first half changed the whole complexion of the game when the home side put the game beyond their visitors. An individual effort from Smith on 35 minutes and a tap-in from Crawford after 43 minutes had Aber



1941 - Dunfermline 7-2 Dundee Utd | Wartime (North Eastern - 1st Series)


2015 - Celtic 5-0 Dundee Utd | League (Premiership)

It was a fairly quiet opening to the match, although Celtic enjoyed the vast majority of possession, defensively United were fairly solid and disciplined in their structure, forcing the Hoops to trying efforts from distance. The home side did eventually make the break-through however, a defensive mix-up seeing Leigh Griffiths latch onto a ball inside the box before converting from an acute angle. After Celtic’s opener United continued to limit the Hoops to striking from distance, but twen



1966 - Barcelona 1-2 Dundee Utd | Inter-Cities Fairs Cup (2nd Round 1st Leg)

It took just 3 minutes for Norwegian ace Finn Seemann to crash a 30 yard shot just over the bar, but the game soon fell into a pattern of Barcelona having most of the ball, with United hitting dangerously on the break.After near things for Gallego and Benidez, Billy Hainey wrote his name into the record books by becoming the first Dundee United player to score in a European tie, and gave the men from Tannadice a shock 1-0 lead. A great moved that wa
