Has to be this one for me. We were sensational. I doubt we've played better in our history on the opening day of a season.

If Messi had fashioned the cross the way GGH did for the third goal, the tv Pundits would still be drooling over it.

Why that team never went on to do really well I will never know..... I will never forget that day as it was one of the best performances from a Dundee team in a long time (Either that or Killie were just shite! lol).

The best definition of a false dawn you could think of. Remember driving home afterwards excited at what we were going to do that season.  Dominant all over the park, KT strolled it just by his presence almost and without no McPake or McGowan. Heady times.

I don't think I was the only one coming away from that game thinking there was a new sheriff in town.

Killie were particularly bad, said that to boys around me who were sitting at half-time saying we'd win the league.

Yeah, noticed that 'super stopper'  Mark Connolly getting the pish ripped out of him.

Wonder where he ended up?! 😜

Easily the best single performance I’ve seen from a Dundee team. Genuinely thought a trophy had our name written on it in the very near future. Football fans exaggerate a fair bit with the old “1 or 2 nil going on 10” but that was definitely the case that day, if we had won by 7+ there would have be no complaints from Killie.

Even the following game v Hearts for 45 mins we took them apart and should have won easily but hearts tweaked a bit (if memory serves me they end up playing rugby and launching it up to Jaunma) and we had no answer. Same with the McPake 2-2 derby, we were well on top, totally controlling the game and looked on course for a comfy win until Thomson went off.

A season of what could have been but that Killie game was a special performance.

The following week (after Killie) was the best 45 minutes by Dundee I think I've seen from a Dundee side. We totally outclassed Hearts from what I recall but only led 1-0 and were bullied in the second half and lost 2-1. We never really started firing again until just before Christmas when we battered Hamilton. By March we were in fine form and most folk on here thought we'd win at Ibrox in the cup but unfortunately we didn't turn up.

It was just a weird season. Never again will you see two players from the same team nominated for player of the year outside the old firm, let alone from the team who finished 8th.

We were awesome and yet rubbish. So many draws as well.

And yet we got to relegate United. Or so i hear.

With Deila at Celtic, Rangers in the Championship and Dundee having a strong team, that was our big chance to win a major trophy but we couldn't take it.

Instead it was Hibs and Ross County who found the killer instinct to win big games when it mattered.

Agree Cobra, in all my days this was a performance that sticks out, they followed up this performance for the first 45 minutes of the next game against Hearts.

Its a mentality thing why it all went wrong.
