Biggest Win (14-0)

Sat, January 17th, 1931

Dundee United entered the second round of the Scottish Cup at a complacent ambling pace. Their fourteen goals came as a matter of course. Nithsdale were hopelessly outclassed, and about eight hundred spectators wondered where the cup tie element came in.

Highest Scoring Draw (5-5)

Sat, September 17th, 1955

It was a freakish game at Firs Park, where Dundee United kept their unbeaten record in the league, and chalked up their fourth league draw. The pitch was bumpy, sodden and dotted with pools. With heavy rain and a high wind added, anything could happen. And that's just how it turned out - but United came home with a valuable point.

Heaviest Defeat (1-12)

Sat, January 23rd, 1954

United Wing Half Andy Tait opened the scoring after just 30 seconds at Fir Park, but after that it was one way traffic. Scotland international - and future United forward - Wilson Humphries scored a quick-fire hat-trick, and with a Willie Redpath penalty and a brace from John Hunter, the home side went in at the interval 6-1 up. The same players repeated the scoring after the break, Humphries finishing with six, Hunter with four and Redpath grabbing a second penalty.
