The Ultimate 11’s – Dundee United

This week’s Ultimate 11’s is Iain McDonald’s Dundee United. Now I’ll level with you, I’m no fan of the Scottish game, but Scotchland have given me some cracking moments over the years, David Narey’s stunnning goal againt the mighty Brazil in World Cup 1982, they eventually lost 4-1 which gave me even more joy.

Speaking of 1982, Dundee United had a superb side who won the SPL then made the semi-finals of the European Cup the following year.

Do you really know your clubs proud history or are you just a teenage glory hunter? (not mentioning any names from the Kings Road & Eastlands). Remember you must pick a decent 11, not 10 forwards and a goalie. We’ll have a butchers and I’ll give my verdict from Mustard to Pony. E-mail your team to

    Hi no biggy but it was 82-83 season when they won the league and 83-84 when they got to the semi’s. There were also allegations that the Italians (roma) bribed the ref, if i recall the Italian leg was 3 or 4-0…
    Remarkably that year if they’d beat roma, the final would have been the first all british final (it would have been utd v liverpool) What are the chances of a scottish team getting to the semi’s now???? I think slim or none….

    you’ve missed out richard gough, i would have thought he should have been in the team…

    I remember David Narey’s brilliant goal against Brazil in 82. Didn’t they take the lead in that game yet ended up losing 4-1?

    I did have Richard Gough in the team originally, but I left him out for Danny Griffin: a controversial choice I know, but I reckon Griffin was a really under-rated defender, and was unlucky to be there when we were struggling to find form (and a regular manager). Plus, he played out on the left side of defence occasionally, so meant I actually had someone to fill the position!
