The Final Countdown Book Launch

May 18, 2017

The launch of The Final Countdown – The Complete Story of Dundee United’s 1986/87 UEFA Cup Campaign – will take place on Monday 22 May. The event will be held at Dundee United FC Superstore, Tannadice Street at 1pm.

Dundee United players from the 1986/7 UEFA campaign (Paul Hegarty, John Holt, David Narey and David Bowman) will be in attendance to sign the book which is available to buy from the Ticket Centre within the Superstore, priced £14.99.

It is a must-have for United fans and everybody who purchases a copy on the day will have the option of taking part in a free tour of Tannadice – ‘The Dundee United Experience’ run by the Dundee United Business Club.

About the book

By any standards, 1987 was an extraordinary year for Dundee United. Led by legendary manager Jim McLean, the tangerine Terrors humbled some of world football’s biggest stars on the way to reaching the UEFA Cup final. As the local newspaper, The Courier was there every step of the way.

Now, 30 years on, The Courier have opened their archives to bring you the remarkable story exactly as it was reported. You’ll find out how McLean drove his players to levels Scottish football may never see again. You’ll observe the manager’s mastery of the media and how he foresaw the threats now plaguing the game in Scotland. But you’ll also discover why a show of sportsmanship amid the pain of defeat means the greatest achievement of all may belong to the fans.

Collated and reproduced for the first time, this is the story all Dundee United supporters will want to read (152pp, hardback, £14.99).

So come along to Tannadice on Monday 22 May and get your copy of ‘The Final Countdown’ and get it signed by some of our very own legends.
