  • Season 2018/19

    The 2018-19 campaign finally arrives at The Kilmac Stadium at Den Park when we welcome Aberdeen to the city to do battle in our first home match of the season.

    The Dark Blues are currently on their worse ever run of defeats against the Dons with nine straight losses and we haven't tasted victory over them in twelve since Thomas Konrad and David Clarkson scored to give us a 2-1 win in the Scottish Cup 4th round back in 2014.

    If we exclude that victory in the cup, we have went a full NINETEEN matches since we last managed a league victory over the Dons. This came at Dens when Neil Barrett scored the only goal of the match way back in 2004!

    That's some depressing reading right there!

    PREVIEW

    DUNDEE started off their campaign by gifting St Mirren al three points last Saturday.

    Last season’s attacking options reared their ugly head with it being a case of déjà vu for players, management and supporters. Then we had the minute of madness at the back that ultimately gifted the home side all three points.

    It would be very harsh however to start writing off players and team with some knee-jerk comments. Of course, the Dunfermline game gave us an indication that we were severely lacking in some areas but hopefully when we recruit players to fill these voids, then we will see a team that will hopefully improve on last terms league position.

    Roarie Deacon is back in training but he is still a few weeks away from being included in the matchday squad.

    ABERDEEN started off their Premiership campaign with a 1-1 draw against ten-man The Rangers last weekend.

    The Dons played for the best part of 80 minutes with a man advantage but despite this, they needed an injury time equaliser with their only shot on target.

    Derek McInnes team have on course been on European duty this summer when they came up against English side Burnley. They certainly didn’t let themselves down by more than matching their opponents from the self-proclaimed ‘Best league in the world.’

    Unfortunately, despite a 1-1 draw at home, Burnley would proceed to the next round of the competition but they would need extra-time to get passed he har working Dons.

    Scott McKenna will miss out due to injury who will be out for around six to eight weeks and joins long term casualties Mark Reynolds and Tommie Hoban along with Shay Logan who is serving a suspension.

      Aberdeen Football Club (also known as The Dons) is a Scottish professional football club based in Aberdeen, Scotland. They compete in the Scottish Premiership and have never been relegated from the top division of the Scottish football league system since they were promoted in 1905, despite twice finishing within the relegation zone. Aberdeen have won four Scottish league titles, seven Scottish Cups and six Scottish League Cups. They are also the only Scottish team to have won two European trophies, having won the European Cup Winners' Cup and the European Super Cup in 1983.
      Formed in 1903 as a result of the amalgamation of three clubs from Aberdeen, they rarely challenged for honours until the post war decade, when they won each of the major Scottish trophies under manager Dave Halliday. This level of success was surpassed in the 1980s, when, under the management of Alex Ferguson, they won three league titles, four Scottish Cups and a Scottish League Cup, alongside the two European trophies. Aberdeen were the last club outside the Old Firm to win a league title, in 1984–85, and also the last Scottish team to win a European trophy. The team has enjoyed less success since this golden era, though a 19-year wait for a major trophy was ended by winning the 2013–14 Scottish League Cup.
      Aberdeen have played at Pittodrie Stadium since their inception. The ground currently has a capacity of 20,866 and was the first all-seated and all-covered stadium in the United Kingdom. Pittodrie was also the first football stadium to feature a dug-out, an invention of player and coach Donald Colman.
      The club's colours have been primarily red and white since 1939; before this, they played in black and gold vertical stripes. In modern times, Aberdeen have almost exclusively played with all-red strips with white detailing. Aberdeen attract support from the city and surrounding areas, as they are the only senior team within a wide area. Aberdeen have no geographically close rivals; their nearest neighbours at the same level are in the city of Dundee.

      Dens Park or its name new name due to a sponsorship deal, The Kilmac Stadium at Dens Park has been the home to Dundee since 1899 following the clubs move from Carolina Port.

      The record attendance at Dens Park occurred in 1953 against Rangers when a massive 43,024 supporters fill the stadium.

      Th main stand was designed by Archibald Leitch and was opened in 1921. Apart from the South Enclosure and the Provost Road end having a roof put over it’s head, the ground had not seen much of an overhaul to it until 1999 when both stands behind the goal were demolished and new modern stands were built.

      The ‘Provie’ Road end was then renamed The Bobby Cox Stand and the TC Keay End, The Bob Shankly Stand. These stands were erected in just 82 days as the club battled to meet the Scottish Premier League’s new seat-capacity guidelines. The club were under pressure to meet the demands of the Premier League or face expulsion from the top-flight but in November 1998, the club were given the green light to procced with the construction early in the new year with the Scottish Sports Council Lottery Sports Fund and the Football Trust fronting half of the £2.6 million needed for the project.

      It had been announced in 2016 that our American owners had purchased land at Camperdown with intent to build a new stadium for the club. This was confirmed by them in early 2017 with the plans for the new layout being released to the public in September later that year.
