Personalised Dundee United Football Book - Gift Details
What do you get the football nut who’s already got everything his team has to offer? Well, you could opt for this history-packed Dundee United Football Book, made up of tabloid-sized reprints of the original newspaper coverage. Formed in 1909, fans can reminisce the last 100 years of the team's history, housed in this personalised edition.
Following the Terrors’ fortunes from 1925 through to the end of last season, this Football Book covers all the club’s highs and lows, including their top-flight league success in 1983. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Along with Aberdeen, Dundee United are the only team to break the Old Firm’s dominance of Scotland’s top flight. Having secured back-to-back League Cups in ’80 and ’81, the Terrors bagged the big one in 1983 when, under the great Jim McLean, the club won the Scottish League. Since then, they’ve gone on to win the Scottish Cup on two occasions.
This football book uses reprints of original newspaper reports to help you relive these magic moments, as well as highlighting the exploits of club legends like Paul Sturrock, Doug Smith, David Narey, Hamish McAlpine and Maurice Malpas.

Dundee United FC was founded in 1900. The club has since gone on to become one of the most successful Scottish football sides after the Old Firm. Dundee United was formed by the Irish Catholic community of the city and the team has always played at Tannadice Park. Although the Terrors reached the First Division in 1925, Dundee United was almost forced to fold due to the Great Depression. The club survived and Dundee United has gone on to win every domestic honour, including the Scottish Premier League title. The team is particularly famous for their entertaining European Cup runs in the 1960s and 1980s. Dundee United beat prestigious clubs such as Barcelona and Juventus and they reached the UEFA Cup final in 1987. The Terrors’ European form led to an invitation to play in the North American Soccer League for two summers. Dundee United became known as the Dallas Tornados and the Terrors adopted the American team’s bright orange kit colour when they returned to Scotland.
A Dundee United Gift Book can be an inspired present for a fan of the Terrors. It is unique, smartly presented and filled with fascinating newspaper reports on the history of the club. Being able to personalise this Dundee United Football Book makes the gift even more special and shows the thought that has gone into buying it. The present will also prove to be a terrific addition to a supporter’s Dundee United memorabilia collection.
This Dundee United Football Book opens with coverage of the Terrors’ 1-0 win over Celtic in 1925. It goes on to cover a selection of great games through the decades of the Twentieth Century, plus highlights from the present era.
The Dundee United Football Book features many memorable matches, including European ties where the Terrors beat the best Europe could offer, such as Barcelona and Juventus. The Gift Books cover the heart wrenching European Cup semi-final against Roma in 1984 and the UEFA Cup final of 1987 against Gothenburg. On the domestic front, the Dundee United Books incorporate a selection of key matches including the hard fought 4-3 win over Celtic in 1949 and several victories against arch rival Dundee FC. One example is the 3-0 win in 1980 that secured the League Cup for the second year in a row. Dundee FC was beaten again in 1983, as Dundee United became champions of the Scottish Premier League. You can read about the disappointment of Scottish Cup Final in 1991 against Motherwell and beating Rangers to secure the Cup in 1994. The Dundee United Gift Book contains a variety of magic moments, which have all been significant to the club’s history.
Newspaper coverage continues right up to the end of last season. This unique insight into Dundee United’s history makes these books truly memorable gifts for fans of the Terrors and a great addition for a collector of Dundee memorabilia.
