Whisper it but if Dundee United lift the Scottish Cup on Saturday they will move ahead of city rivals Dundee in the number of major honours won.
This particular parochial contest is currently tied at 5-5.
The Dark Blues were first off the mark back in 1910 when they collected the Scottish Cup by beating Clyde 2-1 at Ibrox in a second replay. JimmyBellamy and John “Sailor” Hunter got the goals.
Fast forward to 1951 and a Dens side including greats Billy Steel, Alfie Boyd and Doug Cowie saw off Rangers 3-2 in the League Cup final at Hampden.
They were back at the national stadium the following year to lift the same trophy, with a double from Bobby Flavell enough to defeat Kilmarnock 2-0.
Dundee’s finest achievement would come on April 28 1962 when they were crowned champions of Scotland.
The venue was Muirton Park and the opposition was St Johnstone.
The Dark Blues eased to victory thanks to adouble from Alan Gilzean and another from AndyPenman to make it 3-0.
Over a decade would go by before Dundee won their third League Cup and fifth trophy in total.
They faced a formidable Celtic side at Hampden on December 15 1973 but triumphed thanks to a winnerfrom Gordon Wallace.
That made it 5-0 to Dundee in the city silverware battle but United started their collection in 1979, finally securing their first major honour.
It was the League Cup and their 3-0 victory over Aberdeen in a replay on December 12 was all the sweeter in that it came at Dens, the home of their neighbours.
A double from Willie Pettigrew and a single from Paul Sturrock left the Dons demoralised.
A year later, United were back at Dens in the same tournament and this time they were playing the Dark Blues, who had earned the right to host the all-Dundee final after a toss of the coin.
Once again theTangerines triumphed 3-0, this time their goalscoming from Davie Dodds and a Sturrock double.
United’s greatest achievement came at Dens once again, with legends like Hamish McAlpine,Paul Hegarty, Dave Narey, Eamonn Bannon, Ralph Milne and Sturrock becoming champions.
The date was May 14 1983 and the Tannadice men won 2-1 the goals from Milne and Bannon against Dundee to clinch the Premier League crown.
In 1994, under the management of Ivan Golac, a Craig Brewster tap-in saw them beat the odds against double treble-chasing Rangers at Hampden.
United drew level ontrophies in 2010 when David Goodwillie and a Craig Conway double made the score 3-0 in the victory over Ross County in the Scottish Cup final.
