All the Best Marcus Haber

Haber has left the club today, would like to thank him for his goals which helped us stay up a few seasons back.

I hope he recovers from his back injury which seems to have hampered his playing over the last year.

He was a decent striker in a poor team ….. he made a real contribution to the side …. unlike many of those signed more recently

Kenny Miller aside, only proper striker we've had since Hemmings.

Left us with some great memories against Hearts and St Johnstone but none more so than utterly rag dolling United at Dens midweek in the cup. Unforgettable.

All the best big man.

I was really impressed with him in the early days. A real shame he couldn't sustain his form but he made a real contribution.

All the best to him.

If we could have had the Marcus Haber that turned up that night, on a regular basis, we'd maybe not have been in relegation trouble last or this season.

Unfortunately, inconsistency & injury seemed to plague him, and maybe some aspects of how NM wanted the team to play.

All the best to him.

Really liked Haber when he initially signed for us.

We would have been relegated without him that season and his hold up play was quality at times.

As others have said, I’ll remember him for his brilliant performance against the Dabs in the cup.

Took the p*ss with his fashion sense and cringe poses on social media but I secretly found it funny as feck and enjoyed them!

All the best Marcus

All the best Marcus. Made a bigger contribution than most have over the past few season. 

Shame to see it end the way it has though.

He was a couldn't be bothered dead average striker in a poor team.

Totally disagree. When Haber was fit and on his game he was a great asset and his hold up play and dragging the team up the park was probably the reason we avoided relegation the season he signed. Just because he wasn’t banging in goals every week and wasn’t always pleasant on the eye doesn’t mean he wasn’t a good asset.

A fit and motivated Haber would be one of the first names on Jim McIntyre’s team sheer every week. Jut a shame his back appears to be completely fucked.

*When fit and in the mood

Dundee's lose will no doubt be a Milan catwalk's gain.

I notice that Haber has been very complimentary towards us in the press. If we've really nothing good to say about him then it's probably better to say nothing.

I personally think on his game he was a joy to watch. The DAB game was a masterclass in how to single handedly bully an oppositions defence.

Totally agree. A lot of people don’t like his style of play but I love watching a big target man hold up and bully the centre halves for 90 minutes. He put in a masterclass that night. 

Love a Willie Falconer type target man.

Not having a go but is this standard to be set for everyone who talks well of the club after they've left regardless if they're anygood at their job or not?

Ok well I disagree. All he could do was hold up play! A striker in this league needs a hell of a lot more than that. He couldn't hit a barn door from 5 yards and didn't even bother to press the ball. A very very incomplete player. Glad he has gone. Hopefully Curran will work a lot harder, hold the ball up AND actually hit that barn door.

I personally have no axe to grind with any ex-players based on their ability. I think it's counterproductive to sl*g off any player (there's one or two exceptions), whether they be current players or ex-players.

Curran doesn't have a great goalscoring record so it looks like you're going to be disappointed.

The season he was injury free and playing every week he averaged 1 in 3 which for a striker at our level is decent. 

Just because he wasn’t pacey and beating three players at a time people don’t think he was an asset. That season we had really difficulty going forward and getting players into attacking positions but that changed overnight when he signed. As soon as he was up top his hold up play was excellent and his ability to to hold the ball dragged the team up the park and allowed the midfield to get forward into attacking positions and we had struggled with that all season. He was never going to be a player who pressed the ball as that wasn’t part of his game but I don’t think it’s up for debate that the Fit Haber that played for us that season would walk into this Dundee team.
