"I have been a Dundee United fan since 1987 (or 86), when my now husband took me on a first date to see them play Hearts. United lost 3-0, and I've supported them ever since. They had a brilliant team then. Classy and elegant, with players like Paul Sturrock, Maurice Malpas and Jim McInally. When I was with TVAM I used to report on matches. I went to Borussia Monchengladbach where I saw them in the Uefa Cup. I was so excited I could hardly do the interview afterwards. I've also been to the Nou Camp to see them play Barcelona. However I missed the 1994 Scottish Cup final under instructions from my doctor. The final was in May and my baby was born in June. If I had gone I would have had the baby there and then."
