I went to my first game watching the Dees in early 1970’s to watch them play East Fife in a Scottish cup tie in Methil. We won 1-0 with a first minute goal which we did not see because of the crowd getting in. Over these years I have seen them win the league cup, been promoted and relegated more times that I would care to recall. I have seen two admins and the club still goes on and is in my blood. Tonight like all my fellow Dees I am as sick as a dog. I started the season with lots of hope and it’s gone down and down until now there can be hardly any doubt we will be relegated. Mistakes have been common both on and off the park and the relationship between the club and fans seems as distant now as at any time in these almost 50 years.
We will be relegated but I am still a Dee and no matter where we play and who I will remain a Dee. It’s in the blood and so I say to my fellow Dees, relegation sucks but it’s not the end of the world. Me I am just thankful that the Dees have been and will continue to be in the blood. And next season just like this I will start with expectation and excitement and be proud to say I am a Dee.
