    Its all relative, i guess. But whether I witnessed our wins or not makes no difference to the original point. Dundee United have never ever been the most successful team in the city where as Dundee have which is pleasing.

    As I said it is all relative, would I love to see Dundee win a trophy, yes I would. Is it likely to happen no. Cant see anybody winning apart from Celtic Rangers or the Edinburgh teams. Like wise I cant see United winning anything so we will have to settle for being equals now as far as trophies go.

    Fair dos, still think it's possible for other teams to win the odd trophy hear and there but as you say it's gonna be difficult. Never give up hope though.

    Dundee unbeaten in 3 Scottish Cup Finals. United unbeaten in only 2. Dundee's were consecutive as well.

    You really need to explain this statement. By what criteria have you come to this conclusion? Give particular thought to 'never ever' in your assessment.

    It's 21.33 hours on Thursday 7th June 2018. The clock is ticking.

    Club A has won 1 FA Cup in they history (or European Cup)
    Club B has won 1 League Cup in their history (or UEFA Cup)

    Only a halfwit would suggest Club A are not more successful but instead are equal to club B

    That's what we have with our neighbours, who cave stand the fact we have been more successful not only in our lifetimes but overall as of May 2010

    However what they also forget is we have done this in less years overall, less appearances in the big cup (roughly twenty less... but double the finals) and. obviously with less overall year's as a top flight club (99.9% of Cups are won by top league clubs) so their record is very pathetic for that many seasons in the top flight, it really is

    Sums them up, which is pleasing

    The statement United fans always come out with is trophy virgins. So i was basing it on major honors and when they were won. Feel free to show me what part of the statement is incorrect. We have each now won 5 so are equal in the record books apart from the ones shedka reads where Uniteds 5 are worth more than Dundees 5....

    As to shedka you dont half waffel some amount of pish.

    They aren't with the same unless the make up of the 5 are the exact same, they are not, we have two Scottish Cups

    Thanks for the qualification. So it's 5 all in major trophy wins and it is your criteria for basing your statement. Some feel the Scottish Cup holds more value than the League Cup, but for me, it takes the same effort against basically the same standard of opposition to win either. Should one hold more significance than the other? It certainly didn't when we, the Shed, lifted our first major at Dens and then our second the following year.

    If your limited criteria is all you are basing 'most successful team' upon then hold onto your hat and proudly head off into the sunset. In debates such as this, few are content with a draw based upon limited criteria and seek other factors to prove their point. Here is a good start, which should interest you since the first section sort of supports your argument.

    I just checked wiki (so must be right) - so Killie us and the trolleys are jt 7th trophy winners. Killie above us on goal difference (or cup difference) as we are above Dundee. Its the same on SFA website but they actually rank killie above us and us above dundee.

    Some folk clearly using sc as a superior trophy including footballing authorities. Happy to say its 5 all though (dont really give one tbh) and we are ahead on derbys too (thanks RAM).

    Id say we are the most successful club in dundee then - also can someone post european games too - lol

    We could use time in the top league to extend the criteria if you like. As a rule of the tumb and I am sure you will agree the better teams play in the top league for longer.
    Any way it is getting boring now only so many times you can read post by shedka stating but but but our 5 are better than your 5....
    Anyways good luck for the season ahead and you never know shaba may guide you in to contention.

    Thank you. My good wishes to you and your team also for the coming season. Indeed we can use time spent in the top league, but we would have to make it a level playing field. Your origins go further back than ours and you started off in the top league which was the only league at the time. Shed had to start of in the lower tier. Of course, our fewer years in the top league must be far more productive than yours? We have won the same amount of Majors, including Championaze.

    Things can get a bit pedantic as we pick apart to prove 'ooz got the biggest?' I created a thread about all this stuff a while back, including the Forfarshire Cup and the Fizzy etc. A good point of quick reference.....but not so good if like me you can't remember the title of the thread!
