Details

This publication explores the histories of both Dundee United and Dundee FC. As a footballing city, Dundee has been the subject of great curiosity for as long as the game has been played professionally. How does a relatively small and economically-challenged city manage to sustain two senior clubs which, perversely, play across the road from one another? And why has this rivalry not suffered the scourge of sectarianism which has blighted football elsewhere in Scotland? The book explores the histories of both clubs. Readers will learn that when Dundee United reached the semi-final of the 1983 European Cup it meant that, with the exception of Glasgow, Dundee was the only British city to have provided two semi-finalists in that competition.
