13th November 1982 - Scottish Premier Division
After narrowly losing out to Celtic in the League Cup semi final just days before, United faced Rangers at Tannadice. 2-1 down with only 20 minutes left to play, goals from Davie Dodds, Richard Gough and Ralph Milne gave United an fully deserved victory and kept them just 3 points behind Celtic at the top of the table.

2nd April 1983 - Scottish Premier Division
An important result for United as they defeated Rangers 3-1 at home to start the run-in for the final month of the league campaign. Rangers had been the last team to beat United in the League, 3 months before at Ibrox, and Ralph Milne and Paul Sturrock (2) scored the goals as United got revenge.

This was a crucial away game in the final run, coming one week after Dundee United hit the top of the table for the first time, after crushing Kilmarnock 4-0 at Tannadice.

Dundee United 4 Motherwell 0
7th May 1983 - Scottish Premier Division

Dundee United 5 Hibernian 0
10th September 1983 - Scottish Premier Division
Defending Premier Division champions Dundee United demolish Hibs 5-0 at Tannadice, with Hibs "on the rack" for almost all of the 90 minutes.

Dundee United 2 AS Roma 0
10th September 1983 - Scottish Premier Division

16th August 1986 - Scottish Premier Division

Dundee United 2 RC Lens 0
1st October 1986 - UEFA Cup 1st Round 2nd Leg
Although seeded in the competition, United were nevertheless handed a tough opening tie against RC Lens of France. United were fortunate to come back from the away leg with only a 1-0 deficit and in the return leg at Tannadice were frustrated for an hour as all out attack failed to alter the scoreline. However two quick goals by Ralph Milne and Tommy Coyne put the tie beyond doubt.

Dundee United 3 Hearts 1
20th December 1986 - Scottish Premier Division
Hearts, who had lost out on the League title on goal difference just the season before, started this match impressively, and after going one goal up they looked like holding onto that lead.

Dundee United 3 Celtic 2
10th January 1987 - Scottish Premier Division
A highly entertaining game at a snow covered Tannadice saw United go 2-0 up against Celtic with goals from Iain Ferguson and Kevin Gallacher.

Dundee United 1 Barcelona 0
4th March 1987 - UEFA Cup Quarter Final 1st Leg
There was great excitement when the draw for the quarterfinals brought Barcelona to Tannadice, in a repeat of the Fairs Cup contest of 1966. With four minutes on the clock, Kevin Gallacher's "shot" flew over Zubizaretta in the Barcelona goal to give United an early lead. A controlled United performance saw the game finish 1-0, but would it be enough to take to Spain...?
Dundee United 2 Forfar Athletic 2
14th March 1987 - Scottish Cup Quarter Final
In between the two massive Uefa Cup ties against Barcelona, Dundee United faced near neighbours Forfar Athletic in a Scottish Cup quarter final tie at Tannadice. An easy victory surely...or maybe not. 2-1 down with seconds to go, United are thrown a lifeline when awarded a penalty for handball and Iain Ferguson keeps United in the competition. Not exactly a great warm up for heading to the Nou Camp!
Barcelona 1 Dundee United 2
4th March 1987 - UEFA Cup Quarter Final 2nd Leg
Although 1-0 up after the 1st leg at Tannadice, United were given little chance of progressing through to the semi finals as they walked out at the Nou Camp. Barcelona levelled the tie just before half time, but with extra time approaching, John Clark bulleted United in front and Iain Ferguson gave United an astonishing 2-1 victory in the Nou Camp.
Dundee 2 Dundee United 3
14th March 1987 - Scottish Cup Semi Final
Played at Tynecastle Park, this was a typical derby between two sides who had met four times previously in the season, with one win each and two draws to date. Iain Ferguson gave United the lead, before Tommy Coyne and Keith Wright gave Dundee a 2-1 lead at half-time. However, second half goals from Paul Hegarty and Iain Ferguson took United through to the final against St Mirren.
Dundee United 1 Gothenburg 1
20th May 1987 - UEFA Cup Final 2nd Leg
In the first ever UEFA Cup Final played in Scotland, United were trailing 1-0 after the 1st leg in Sweden. Gothenburg scored an all important away goal early on with a counter attack, and although United threw everything they had left at them, they could do no more than equalise the tie on the night, with a superb finish from John Clark, and Gothenburg won the trophy 2-1 on aggregate.
