A supporter of the Dundee United Football Club which is based in Tannadice Park in the city of Dundee, Scotland. The team itself is known as the Tangerines due to the bright orange colour of their strips. Founded in 1909, originally as a team for the local Irish Catholic community, Dundee United has since widened its appeal. Arabs perhaps haven't always been the happiest of supporters because their chosen team has usually taken on the role of underdog, but apparently they have a 100% record against Barcelona in competitive European ties. Arabs may or may not speak Arabic as their first language but generally they speak English or Scots, albeit, if they come from Dundee, most likely a peculiar form of speech found only within the confines of that city.

The talented set of players brought in by Steve Archibald when Ardrieonians F.C., so-called because they were of Spanish nationality. With this group of new players added to the squad, led by Steve Archibald, it was thought that Airdrieonians might have revived their hopes of success, although few would have expected them to reach the heights of the 1920s, when Ardrieonians came second place in the Scottish League Championship, won the Scottish Cup and toured Norway and Sweden. Alas, despite the valiant efforts of many, including the loyal Joey Rowan and later Steve Archibald and his Spanish Armada, Ardrieonians finally went into administration in 2002, having become mired in debt. It is commonly acknowledged, however, that they live on in the new team, Airdrie United, formed from what was Clydebank, then renamed and moved to Airdrie and their strip also features the famous diamond design of the Ardrieonians.
It could be said that the Spanish Armada was a last-ditch effort by Airdrieonians to avoid bankruptcy. It alludes to the Spanish fleet sent to conquer England by King Phillip of Spain and the historical football term is not related to the historical military term in any tangible way.
