  2. Dundee 1 Aberdeen 2. League Cup tie from Dens Park, 30/11/83. Att: 11,019. Dundee must win to qualify, That looked tough when McGhee scored his 100th Dons goal with a cross-shot which Geddes might have saved. Aberdeen Scorers McGhee (18) and Bell (46).
  3. Aberdeen obliterated Dundee to ensure four teams are split by just a point at the top of the Scottish Premiership.
  4. Sam Cosgrove netted twice against strugglers Dundee, who now trail second-bottom St Mirren by three points.
  5. James McPake welcomes Aberdeen to Dens this weekend in the Betfred Cup.
  6. Dundee out. We've succeeded in snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Just need to focus on the league now.
  7. Really impressed with the way McPake not only set us up for this game, but the massive performance by everyone in a Dark Blues shirt. If we continue to play like this and this team does grow, then I don't think we will have much to fear in the Championship. I understand it was another defeat by the Don's, but unlike previous league and cup games against them we made them look poor all over the park today. Maybe out...but I am defiantly not down!
  8. The ref against Aberdeen was Bobby Madden . How did you rate his performance in this game?
  9. Steven Milne and a Bergkamp-esque finish from Steve Lovell seal the points for Dundee.
  10. Bobby Glennie’s Dens memories. We venture back in time again with Billy Campbell's Ghost, he talked with Bobby Glennie and his memories playing for the mighty Dee. But, back in season 1977/78 it was Hearts who put Dundee's bid for glory on hold for another season as the Dark Blues made their second vain attempt to get out of the backwater of First Division football. At the end of the first season of the brand new Premier League, it was Dundee who unfortunately were relegated along with St.Johnstone but only after a brave fight with our street neighbours and Aberdeen, with goal difference the deciding factor.

  11. Bobby Glennie’s Dens memories. We venture back in time again with Billy Campbell's Ghost, he talked with Bobby Glennie and his memories playing for the mighty Dee. But, back in season 1977/78 it was Hearts who put Dundee's bid for glory on hold for another season as the Dark Blues made their second vain attempt to get out of the backwater of First Division football. At the end of the first season of the brand new Premier League, it was Dundee who unfortunately were relegated along with St.Johnstone but only after a brave fight with our street neighbours and Aberdeen, with goal difference the deciding factor. People still say to this day that we never recovered from our term in the lower league - I would say that there must be an element of truth in that although Simon and Jim are doing their damnedest to ensure that the only way is up for our club. Look what happened to the survivors - Aberdeen and United since then - a total of sixteen trophies between them including a European win plus another final and all three domestic honours! Quite astonishing - Dundee reached a League Cup Final while in the lower league. One can only wonder what might have happened if Dundee had stayed up instead of one of our derby rivals! In season 1976/77 a superb St. Mirren and a slick Clydebank left Dundee to languish in the First Division for a second year which was to prove very competitive as Hearts joined Dundee in the 'First' and made it two big teams that everyone wanted to beat that season. These two could still draw the crowds with players such as Billy Pirie, Eric Sinclair and latterly that season, Bobby Glennie, and in the Hearts team, the exciting Rab Prentice and a sprightly Eammon Bannon (with hair! – apparently, the only difference between Eammon and the Edinburgh Festival is that the Festival has a fringe!). Bobby Glennie joined Dundee that season around February and became a regular fixture towards the end of the promotion challenge. Bobby remembers that season well, particularly as it reached its climax with the great prize - a return to the Premier League - the only place to be in Scottish football. Bobby was a youthful 20 when he arrived at Dens from Aberdeen. As Bobby says, 'After realising that with the likes of Miller, McLeish, Garner and McLelland at Pittodrie, competition for a first team place was going to be difficult! It was good sense for me to play first team football and what better place than the club I supported - and still do! '. Bobby soon settled in at centre half and remembers, ‘After I joined up at Dens, Dundee only suffered one defeat towards the end of that season but with a number of drawn games had allowed both Morton and Hearts to sneak fractionally ahead and the last game of the season was a win or bust match against the already promoted Morton at Cappielow while Hearts had to drop at least one point at Gayfield. The promotion battle had caught the imagination of the fans that season and Dundee had home crowds of 13,000 and 14,000 in successive games at Christmas and early in the New Year the clash with Hearts at Tynecastle had pulled in a mammoth 19,000 with an estimated 6000 from Dundee which still stands as a First Division record and is unlikely to be beaten unless one of the Old Firm ever get relegated! - Some hope! The division boasted quality players such as those mentioned earlier and Morton displayed the talents of a young Mark McGhee and the irrepressible Andy Ritchie! Dundee headed for Cappielow on the last day of the season, 29 April 1978 with around 7000 fans in a crowd of 12,500 all hoping the day would go their way! Morton had beaten Airdrie at home in the midweek to clinch the title and should have been fairly relaxed on the Saturday. As it was they were very relaxed! Bobby Glennie remembers that Morton had the perfect start. 1 They went one up in 21 minutes through Russell but Ian Redford knocked one in to allow us to go in at half-time level. We had another blow with around twenty minutes to go when another defence splitting pass from Andy Ritchie let Russell in to score a second! ‘I then scored a rare goal to equalise and in a frantic finish Billy Pirie put us in the lead which we held till the end to win 3-2.’ 'The fans had heard a rumour that Hearts had drawn at Gayfield and were celebrating and demanding we come out for a lap of honour but word had filtered through that they had in fact won with a single goal from Eammon Bannon. The lads were sick and very subdued on the way home and the fans were obviously the same way. Albert Kidd (can I mention him?) played for Arbroath that day but did Dundee no favours while other stalwarts of the successful Hearts side were Cammy Fraser and Jim Jeffries. From a personal point of view it was a disastrous day as I also lost my watch on the Cappielow terracing due to much jumping around and cheering as we all believed Dundee had done it that day - It was not to be and Dundee faced a financially crippling third season in the First Division. Dundee finally went up to the Premier League the following season with Hibs and this three year period probably did untold financial damage to the club as well as affecting the morale of the support, with the main beneficiaries perhaps being our neighbours across the road. · Bobby Glennie went on to captain his beloved Dundee and earned the respect of the Dundee support to such an extent that he is still stopped in the streets of Dundee today by people he doesn’t know - but they know him. Bobby doesn't mind this one bit and I think in footballing circles that this is the mark of utmost respect for a player who played for the jersey and earned the admiration of all Dark Blue fans. Bobby recalls many excellent players at Dens and is yet another who rates Jocky Scott as one of the best. 'He had everything and was a bit of a hero for me. I also rated Gordon Wallace highly and Eric Sinclair was magnificent. Jimmy Murphy was a player who had incredible skill and if Jimmy had a poor game it did not get to him at all. More recently, I rate Jim Duffy as one of the best in the business.' 'I faced many quality players but Charlie Nicholas could beat people with ease - a really exciting player and Mark McGhee always gave me a hard time- even he didn't know what he was doing at times!' Bobby wouldn't include any Arabs in his choice of quality players although I detected a well disguised admiration for one or two - very diplomatic Bobby! Bobby rates the 5 - 1 win over Celtic, a 4 - 3 win at Tannadice and the 1980 League Cup Final as the the highlights of his career. Bobby now works for Trojan which seems appropriate as he certainly played like one and is turning out for the Violet these days but is plagued by pelvic problems. He has two young lads who are keen football fans but one is giving him a dilemma as he favours the 'other lot' although as in the words of Glennie Senior, 'I’ll soon put him right!' We're sure you will Bobby as many fellow professionals found out over the years! One memory which is very special is his goal against Aberdeen at Dens caught by the TV cameras forever, 'It was so far out I couldn't believe it and neither did Cammy Fraser who kept telling me it was only 20 or so yards. We eventually got hold of a measuring machine from Wullie Robertson, the groundsman, and looked at the TV film to mark the spot - I reckon it was around 35 yards! Cammy to this day still tries to play it down.' Our Cammy jealous? - surely not! Bobby still has it on tape 'somewhere in the attic' and will surely keep it as an outstanding memory of a great career. When Bobby finally hangs up his boots he intends to get back on the terracing at Dens to support Dundee - and hopefully he'll have TWO sons with him!
  12. SUNDAY SOCCER TREATS FOR DENS FANS! We venture back again with Billy Campbell's Ghost, this time his 1992 article on Dundee's 1974 Scottish cup run which ended in a 1-0 defeat to Celtic in the semi-finals. With the power cuts came early kick-offs to save on floodlighting and Dundee lifted the League Cup that season by defeating Celtic 1-0 at Hampden in a game that kicked off at 1pm and had such appalling weather that only around 30,000 were in attendance. Dundee also played a number of Sunday games then and became known as the 'Sunday Specials' as they won virtually every game they played including a fantastic Scottish Cup run and a couple of League wins - one which was a 2-1 victory at Parkhead. Having already won the League Cup that season, Dundee eagerly awaited the draw for the Scottish Cup and were paired with old north-east rivals Aberdeen at Pittodrie, a game immediately moved to the Sunday, 27 January 1974. The next round draw had been made after the Saturday ties and the winners had been drawn to meet rangers at Ibrox in the next round! So every incentive was there and the scene was set. A huge travelling support headed up to the Granite City that day hoping to douse the Northern Lights and set off on the trail for double cup glory. Around 24,000 were in Pittodrie that afternoon as the teams lined up: Aberdeen: Clark, Williamson and Hermiston; Smith, Young and Miller; Graham, Robb, Jarvie, Henry and Purdie. Dundee: Allan, R.Wilson and Johnston; Ford, Phillip and Gemmell; J. Wilson, Robinson, Duncan, Scott and Lambie. My memories are of sitting on a freezing cold day in the main stand witnessing a marvellous away performance surrounded by huge numbers of Dundee fans thoroughly enjoying the discomfort of the dispirited Dons fans. Davie Johnston, left back for the Dees that day has special memories as he scored one of his rare goals for the Dark Blues- a 25 yarder at that! 'Aberdeen had a hoodoo over Dundee and maybe still do, as they always seemed to dispose of us with relative ease for some unknown reason, but this day we were outstanding. We had the League Cup on the sideboard at Dens and were now a confident, good footballing side and as an Aberdeen lad I was always fired up for these derbies in particular!' 'I remember little detail of the match but my goal does stick in my mind (what a surprise Davie!). Bobby Ford had a shot blocked and I hit the rebound from around 25 yards and as Bobby Clark went one way, it struck Jim Henry and deflected into the other corner. I believe a paper put it down as an o.g. but take it from me - it was mine! The Dundee support were ecstatic and out sang the home fans so that it was almost like a home game for Dundee. 'Late in the second half, just after missing a sitter, Bobby 'Trigger' Robinson blasted one in the roof of the net to clinch it for us and our trip to Ibrox was confirmed'. This finally extinguished any flicker of hope in the Northern Lights and by this time the Dens fans were ready to sing “we're gonna win the cup” and as a fanatical 16-year old I was a leading light in the standites chorus much to my father’s embarrassment - he is a bit more reserved, but I'm sure he believed it as well! Dave, or Biffo, as he became to Dens diehards, due to his self-confessed robust approach to the game, has fond memories of his ten years at Dens especially that season, 'we then thrashed Rangers at Ibrox, again on a Sunday, 3-0 in front of 65,000 and hammered Hibs 3-0 after a 3-3 draw at Easter Road, only to play well below par in the semi against Celtic and lost 0-1' Dave remembers that Dundee had to do it the hard way, 'all our ties were away from home and some people were saying we had deserved the cup after winning the first three rounds. It was especially disappointing to lose the semi as it would have been United in the final and I don't think a cup could have been won by a tougher route, Aberdeen, Rangers, Hibs, Celtic and Dundee United -all away in effect! 'Still it was not to be and I still have my memories of great Dundee player such as Jocky, a complete footballer, Iain Philip and Jim Steele - all tremendous players to have in your side.' Dave recalls some of his most memorable opponents and rated two Celtic wingers as the ones who gave him the most bother, Jimmy Johnstone and after him, the late Johnny Doyle. 'Johnstone had his shimmy and Doyle had the pace, and both were tremendous players who always gave me a hard time.' After leaving Dens, Dave became player/coach at Montrose for a short time and then went into the financial side of the oil industry. He then returned to football as Commercial Manager at Dens and did a great job before being lured back to the world of industry. He has returned to football again and is here today as Commercial Manager of Aberdeen, his home town club - welcome back Biffo, although we hope to be putting out the Northern Lights again today!

    Aberdeen

    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.
  16. Dundee went down to a Gary MacKay-Stevens penalty in the 75th minute but not before they had chances to put themselves ahead in this tie. Sofien Moussa spurned two chances either side of half time while his strike partner Jean Mendy dragged a shot wide when he was bearing down on goal. Josh Meekings also had a glorious chance to put us ahead in the second half but he failed to make proper contact from the corner with his head. "It's a sore one to take. In this match we had our opportunities to put ourselves in front, so we've only got ourselves to blame,” said McCann. “The biggest disappointment for me is that I don't mind keepers making saves, but not to hit the target is poor. Aberdeen are a good side so you have to take those chances when they come along. "Moussa's in the first half when he skies it over the bar then Mendy's, with some good play, when they don't hit the target from those opportunities - that's the frustrating part. "It annoys you because you just want the boys to have a wee bit of composure, I can’t give them composure. We haven't done that today, and we paid the price." “If you create three 100 per cent chances and you don’t work the keeper once that’s where you fall down. “The guys just need to slow down and it’s sore because we could have been sitting with six points instead of none.”
  17. 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.

At home to Aberdeen we usually struggle. Our last home league win against them was 13 years ago. Does Mark have the desire to ram that stat down their throats? He's certainly got the ability.

  22. Despite the defeat, McCann has promised to not be too hard on the players as he was happy with the performance. “We deserved to take something from the game,” said McCann. “Their keeper Joe Lewis has made two very good saves and there was also a shout for a penalty. “The boys deserved something for their application and the chances we created. “The performance was there, although we didn’t get anything from the game. ‘The players have shown a lot of character to stay in the match. “It shows respect that Aberdeen decided to camp in and hit on the counter-attack. “Coming up against a team who have been the second best in the country for the past few years, though, I think the players can be pleased and I haven’t been too hard on them. “I have told them there is no disappointment here because I was happy with the way they played.”
