Season review[edit]

United finished the 1998–99 SPL season in 9th place with 34 points, in the SPL's debut season.

The cup campaigns brought mixed fortunes: a League Cup 3rd round exit to Ross County was bettered by a Scottish Cup semi-final loss to Celtic.

Trivia[edit]

  • Joe Miller, who signed from Aberdeen, scored two goals during his time with United - both against Aberdeen.
  • United led eventual champions Celtic in three of the four league matches in 1998–99 but only managed to take one point.
  • United's highest and lowest home attendances occurred in consecutive matches at Tannadice - nearly 13,000 watched United in a goalless draw against Rangers while less than 6,500 turned up eleven days later to watch them play Dunfermline. It was the second season in a row that United's lowest home attendance was against the Pars.
