  1. How could a season of administration that saw us stare closure in the face, be handed a 25 point deduction that left us 20 adrift of our nearest rivals and seemingly destined for 3rd tier football for the first time in our 109 years history could turn into one of the most magical experiences of my life? Never in all my time as a Dundee FC fan have I experienced as many emotional states as I have this season. There was the subdued start of a new campaign, the game at Cowdenbeath which left me shocked to my very core then, just when it felt like things couldn’t get worse, our plunge into administration for a second time. This left me fearing that the plug was about to be pulled on the club I love’s life support machine but from that moment of despair my predominant feelings have been a mixture of pride, excitement, determination to keep my club here and most importantly....... BELIEF! I really haven’t seen any other fans rally around their club in which the way we did. Granted we have the ‘Been there and done that’ t-shirt but to me, this time it was different and I actually feared that Dundee FC would become no more. But then we faced Partick at home, just after receiving the shock news of the 25 point penalty, and this is a match that will be forever etched in my mind. Not for the result, not for the goal from Jamie Adams in the dying minutes, and not even for the effort and fight the players showed on the park and would be the defining characteristic of the season. No, the thing that will stay with me forever was the atmosphere that day. Like every other team in any other country, Dundee have their share of boo boys but, for this game, they didn’t turn up. Instead they were replaced with a larger-than-average crowd of people shouting nothing but encouragement and roaring their support. I even managed to persuade a friend of mine, who is an Arab for his sins, to come along and take in the match in which he did with quiet enthusiasm, especially when the winning goal went in. From that day on _______ __________ (name deleted due to a pending superinjunction as the Arab in question seeks to preserve his credibility around Tannadice) has been constantly reminded that he Derry Rhumba’d with such passion that I think he secretly bleeds blue blood! Speaking of that Derry Rhumba, the way the spiritual home of the Dundee support exploded when the winner went in off Jamie’s knee/shin/bum/who cares was nothing short of amazing. I saw people climbing on people who were climbing on people and it’s fair to say a few must’ve suffered injuries to their phones, glasses or person as they were caught in this sea of celebration. In all my years supporting Dundee, I think this was the only time when I have deliberately broken off from the celebrations just so I could stand back and look in awe at the South Enclosure. Hell I even gave my dad a tap on the shoulder so he could share my amazement in the wild scenes all around us. From then on I had faith that we could beat the challenges left for us by the people who had got us in this mess and those who had handed us the football equivalent of capital punishment. I believed we could, and clearly so did the players who took us on a quite incredible journey. Gary Harkins’ free kick and Neil McCann’s winner against Raith. Standing in the rain to see us equal the club’s unbeaten record. Seeing a lifelong Dundee fan make his debut and playing his part as the league leaders were put to the sword. Watching the loony tunes pitch invasion at Falkirk Stadium...this season had more than a touch of the fairytale about it. The team have been an absolute joy to watch and the players deserve to take their place among the greats of Dundee’s history. The run they went on to ensure that we are still here, especially the fact they had seen their mates lose their jobs and have their own futures thrown into doubt, is something that has me bursting with pride. Never before have I seen a bond between players and fans like I have here and I am proud to say that I have been a part of it. I have never been prouder to be a Dark Blue and, for everything we have achieved over the past season I salute Barry Smith, his players, the staff at Dens, and my fellow Dark blues. Now we look to the future and hope that the dark days are behind us. People say you learn from your mistakes and it’s safe to say that we have more than our fair share to learn from but I believe that this time it will be different for Dundee FC. We have a proud tradition to uphold in this city and I now look forward and dream that we can bring the glory days back to Dens Park with honest hard work. And I will always get a shiver down my spine when I remember how it felt to look onto the Derry when the ball hit the net at that Partick game.
  2. The Dark Blues had been well beaten 3-0 in the first leg at the San Siro so it was always going to be an uphill task but the home side certainly made it a nervy occasion for the Rossoneris. Gianni Rivera gave Milan the lead after only fourteen minutes into the 1st leg and they would double it just five minutes into the second half when George Stewart turned the ball into his own net. The victory was all but wrapped up when Romeo Benetti netted AC Milan’s third goal with twenty minutes left to play. A crowd of 15,500 turned up at Dens Park on the 8th December 1971 in the hope that their heroes could do the unbelievable and knock the Italians out of the cup. In attendance that night also hoping to see Dundee defy the odds was former League winning manager Bob Shankly. Dundee would go ahead on the 38th minute when a Duncan Lambie cross was headed home by Gordon Wallace. Dundee would continue to look for the equaliser but despite the pressure they were applying to their opponents, the Dark Blues would find it hard to make another break through against a defence who would only concede seventeen goals in the league that season. Of course, it wasn’t just the Italians lineage of quality defending that kept Dundee at bay, it was also the blatant time-wasting tactics that they resorted to with the Dee ramping up the pressure. We would score another goal with sixteen minutes left on the clock when Duncan Lambie’s long-range drive struck the post and then fell into the path of John Duncan who slotted home the rebound to make It 2-0 and set up a grandstand finish. The home side would push for the goal that would take the tie into extra-time but despite a frantic last ten minutes for Milan, they were able to see out the tie to win 3-2 on aggregate and book their spot in the Quarter Finals to face Belgium side Lierse S.K. who they would beat 3-1 over both legs. This would set up a semi-final clash with eventual winners Tottenham Hotspur who would defeat the Italian side with a certain Alan Gilzean (who previously faced Milan during our run to the European Cup Semi-Final back in 1962-63) in their side. Even though the end of the night had seen another European campaign come to an end for Dundee, the crowd gave the players a standing ovation as they left the pitch after they had served up a performance that if we had struck earlier, could very well have went on to get the result that would have seen us and not Milan get our hats into the draw for the next round. This win however continued our undefeated streak at home in Europe since our maiden campaign in 1962/63. We had gone twelve games without a loss at home and this was our tenth victory at Dens against some of Europe’s finest teams. This tie also signalled AC Milan’s second visit to Dens Park and just like the first one, they would fail to score on our turf and taste defeat. Of course, on both encounters, the results at the San Siro would give us an uphill battle and eventually be the results that got them through. Still, isn’t nice to say that a team who have been champions of Europe seven times have played twice at Dens, lost twice and failed to score.

  3. A hat-trick from striker Kenny Miller earned Jim McIntyre his first victory as Dundee manager as they hammered Hamilton Academical at Dens Park. Miller struck from close range in the first half before curling in two goals from the edge of the box in the second. Jesse Curran scored Dundee's third with the help of a deflection. It means McIntyre's side move to within a point of St Mirren in 11th and earned only their second league victory of the season in 15 games. It also moves them to within five points of Hamilton, who remain 10th. Miller's goal haul means he has scored more than a third of his side's league goals, and has five in his last three games.

  5. Table toppers Dundee were five points clear of Rangers who sat third in the table although we had played two-games more. The Dens Park outfit had the previous week just beaten Celtic and were hoping to make it eight wins in a row while the current Scottish Champions were unbeaten at home and in all competitions and eager to close the gap at the summit of the league. The chairman John F. Wilson praised Dundee in his notes for the matchday programme declaring, “They are the type this country needs as we strive to recapture the reputation that was once ours of being the greatest footballing country on earth.” Of course, our run in the following year’s European Cup where we tore apart some of the finest sides in Europe, would make his words ring true. Until then, he would have to watch on as Dundee laid down their Championship credentials in incredible fashion. In the ‘Up Wi’ The Bonnets – The History Of Dundee FC’ book, Norrie Price wrote how a dense fog had descended upon Glasgow and despite an anticipated large crowd, rumours around the games postponement and countless supporters buses being turned around by police less a mile to the ground meant that only half of the stadium was full. The fog started to lift with just half an hour before kick-off and the fans who were on their way back home would miss an all-time classic Dundee victory. It’s hard to believe that a game that ended 5-1 would remain goalless at half time but that’s what happened here. All the action would happen with a flurry of goal activity in the last forty-five minutes. In the opening two-minutes of the restart, Alan Gilzean put Dundee ahead with two quick-fire goals and would then claim his hat-trick on the 73rd minute when he slotted home following a quickly taken corner from Gordon Smith. Rangers would pull a goal back but this would not deter the Dark Blues. Alan Gilzean would dummy the unlucky Rangers defender who was marking him before drilling the ball home into the bottom corner of the net. Andy Penman would add number five when Jim Baxter attempted a pass back which was short and the striker was on hand to take full advantage. This result put Dundee seven points ahead of the reigning champions and five ahead of second place Kilmarnock who were beaten 3-2 at home to Raith Rovers. The previous season, Rangers had beaten Kilmarnock to the Championship title by one point, also defeating the Ayrshire outfit 2-0 in the League Cup. They also made it all the way to the European Cup Winners’ Cup Final but had to do with being runners up to Fiorentina. This made this result even more special as it came against a Gers team who had ‘been there and done it.’ The national newspapers lauded Dundee with praise after this victory. The Daily Record went with the headline ‘Rangers Smashed By Terrible Trio’ with reporter Rex Kingsley describing that days events as, “The home fans were stunned as the prancing, cultured Dundee side reduced their idols to wide-eyed, fear-stricken units.” Other headlines such as ‘A Fabulous Fiver’ and ‘Gilzean Leads Massacre Of Rangers’ were put out by the media while the Evening Times describe this result as ‘This Ibrox “Slaughter” Was No Surprise.” Gair Henderson could not speak highly of this Dundee time in his match report for the Evening Times by praising the Dee numerous times throughout it. ‘But to those of us who have seen Dundee recently this was no shock and no sensational result. I hinted a few weeks that the cry this season might not be “who will stop Rangers?” but “who will stop Dundee?” ‘ ‘This is the best footballing playing team I have seen this season – and last season too for that matter of fact.’ ‘Alan Gilzean, for instance. He strides through and he hits ‘em in a way which is both a lesson to Rangers and Scotland these days. And there is Gordon Smith, the man who was said to be “past it” five years ago.’ ‘They were thrashed because the forwards, a shadow of the forwards of a month or two back, could make nothing at all of the granite-looking defence of Ure, Hamilton, Cox and Liney.’ It was a truly sensational victory for the soon-to-be Scottish Champions and if no-one knew it before, they would know now that Dundee were genuine title contenders.
  6. With the pressure mounting on Neil McCann at fever pitch and the rumour mill speculating that anything other than a win today would lead to his sacking, Dundee dug deep to secure their first win of the season. To round up a pleasant day for the Dee, they also managed to keep a clean sheet in this moral boosting victory. Dundee still sit bottom but they have plugged the gap between themselves, St Mirren and Motherwell to just one point, who both lost today. Andy Boyle gave Dundee the lead in the first half on the 38th minute when he headed home at the back post and despite Hamilton hitting the bar twice, Kharl Madianga wrapped up the victory when he made it two in the third minute of injury time. For once, Dundee fans can look forward to watching SportScene tomorrow evening.

Mark O'Hara (13') and Kevin Holt (41') made it 2 - 0 before the half time. Rangers Gardner pull one back on the 62nd minute to make the final score 2 - 1 the Dark blues.

    Dundee 1 - 1 Kilmarnock

    Dundee were held to a 1 - 1 draw by the visitors to Dens Park Kilmarnock. Kris Boyd opened the scoring within the first 10 minutes, thanks to some terrible defending which let Scott Bain on a one to one with the veteran striker who slotted past Bain and into the empty net. Kevin Holt made it 1 - 1 in the 27th minute as he swept the ball past three oncoming Kille players.
  10. TheDarkBlues

    Inverness CT 2 - 2 Dundee

    Inverness CT come back from 2 - 0 down to earn a point at the Caledonian Stadium.

ICT were awarded two penalties and both from Julen Etxabeguren (Which he was booked for one). McKay scored the first (53'), but Bain saved the second. Greg Tansey scored on the rebound in the 79th minutes to share the spoils. The Dark Blues could consider themselves lucky and some good goal keeping from Scott Bain helped keep the score at 2 - 2.
