image for Dundee United Fans Help Out Club

Dundee United fans have volunteered to do work at their ground in an attempt to save the club money.

The Tangerine supporters have followed the lead from their rivals across the road - Dundee , who only recently came out of their second period of administration, held an open day at Dens Park when fans did odd jobs all over the stadium. Painting, cleaning, gardening and electrical work was carried out as the supporters continued their efforts to help the club survive.

The United fans, however, have other more major tasks to undertake.

They are determined to change the image of Tannadice which has long been ridiculed in view of its 4 uneven stands. Some have labelled it as "surrealism gone bad", others have likened it to "lego building on acid", while most critics simply refer to it as "The Sticklebrick" or even "Tannadump".

Unfortunately, there aren't enough bulldozers and wrecking balls in the city to make much impact so it looks like United will be lumbered with the eyesore that is Tannadice for a few years more.

The other feature of the ground that is badly needing rectified is the slope at the East End of the ground - during the bad rains of last autumn, the changing rooms were frequently flooded. A levelling off of the offending area is badly needed.

Tangerine fans have taken the first steps towards rectifying the problem by digging up skips full of earth and grass from the low lying corner.

But the busy weekend nearly ended in disaster when the bin lorry arrived to collect a couple of tons of rubbish and centre halves Gary Kenneth and Darren Dods were almost taken away instead.
