To Be a Dee

Once a Dee, always a Dee. This season has been the worst I can remember, but if we can win the next 2 games and St.Mirren lose theirs then we will be facing them in the last game at Dens only one point behind. We can still make the play-offs and today's performance gives us hope. We are back scoring goals which was a worry going into this game. It looks a very slim hope, but stranger things have happened. Losing to ten men is bad and is stupid, but it has happened to better teams than us. We have played the two strongest teams and now we have to play 3 teams which have to be seen as far as we are concerned are beatable. Hamilton are safe leaving ourselves and Saints to fight it out for the play-off spot. Nothing is over until it's over.

Been through the mill over the years like many on here. Fortunately I have  fond memories of some great times when we were challenging for honours both at home and abroad not just in hope but with actual expectation but these are just memories that I can't see us ever repeating. That's not just the fault of Dundee it's the same for all Scottish clubs bar celtic or rangers who will have the odd flurry of European success if success is the right word. Whatever happens next season and beyond I will always be a Dee... It's in the blood and always will be

It’s over we are relegated 

We're more likely to stay up this season than we were to pull off the Deefiant season. 

Home wins for Dundee and Motherwell next week will open the door to an unlikely great escape. I've just not given up just yet.

Home wins next season won't help us in any way this season mate.

Give up, it won't happen this season we're gone and have been for weeks.

I've been a long suffering Dee for 50+ years now. The first game I can recall attending was against Anderlecht in the European Cup. Since then I've attended every home European Cup, Cup Winners Cup and Fairs/UEFA cup game, I've seen us triumph and fail (many times) at Hampden plus what must be hundreds of domestic home and away games since. I'm struggling to think of another group of supporters who've gone through the doom and gloom we have over these years, limited success, multiple relegations, administrations, useless managers etc etc. Apart from the Deefiant season I can't think of many times we've won 'must win' games or triumphed when all hope seemed lost, it seems to be the 'Dundee way'.

I'd resigned myself to relegation after the recent St Mirren collapse but yesterday a small glimmer of hope appeared, it was 3-3 at Fir Park, we were up against 10 men, we were scoring goals plus St Mirren and Hamilton were losing! I saw some light at the end of a very dark tunnel. At my age and on past experiences I should have known better, I think every one of us could have predicted what was going to happen. It's the 'Dundee way'.

My missus has a favourite saying, 'Why worry about things you can't affect or can do nothing about'? Normally I would agree with her (why change the habit of a lifetime?) but that saying definitively doesn't apply when you're a Dundee supporter. You can't help but worry, it's the 'Dundee way'. As numerous posters have said It's the hope that kills you'.

I know how you feel but its not just Dundee. What have Ayr fans, Dumbarton fans...... etc etc got to shout about. They might argue that at least we get a wee shot in the top league from time to time. I'm with your missus on this, its not always easy but I try and keep my 'Chi' in a happy place and losing my sh*t every time Dundee have a wee 'whoopsadaisy' won't help my Chi. :rolleyes: Its safe to say I 'associate' myself with Dundee FC and the clubs various shenanigans over the years have impacted on me, good and bad and obviously one more than the other but only because I let it. I don't lose any sleep over the Scottish curling team because I don't associate myself with them. I guess I'm saying we need to manage our expectations.
