Details

Through promotions, cup final heroics and championship glory there has been one common thread running through Dundee United's glorious history. The bond between the Tannadice faithful and their playing idols has been an endearing constant for generations of United supporters. But what elevated the chosen stars to cult status? Why have a select band reached out to touch the Tannadice fans in a way that mere mortals could only dream of? "Tannadice Idols" explores 20 of the most loved characters ever to have pulled on the famous shirt and explores the reasons behind their affinity with Arabs followers through the ages. Some have wowed the crowd with their brilliance, some earned plaudits for their heart on sleeve attitude and others stood out from the crowd in appearance alone. Each cult hero had his own special relationship and his own group of devotees. Through interviews with hand picked idols as well as observations from supporters and media professionals, "Tannadice Idols" casts a fresh eye over the most memorable relationships between United players and fans. You can discover the truth behind the musical tributes penned in honour of the cult heroes, the stories behind the local rivalry which spawned a sense of purpose shared by stars and supporters as well as the background to the cross continent games of cat and mouse which brought some of the cherished overseas talents to Tayside in a fast paced tribute to Dundee United's cult heroes.
