Could Dundee have been Scottish champions again if they didn't have to sell players in the late 70s and early 80s?

Fraser, McKimmie, McKinlay, Duffy, Strachan, Redford, Brown, Connor, Harvey, Rafferty, Ferguson. A lot of quality there. I don't think we would have been all that far away from challenging if we'd done well with the Pools like United and been able to prosper without player sales.

I think I would have idolised Sturrock as a kid if I was an Arab as he was the slightly built and gifted player that I was on the playground.

But because he wore tangerine I hated him. I think when you're a kid everything is black and white and you can't enjoy anything of quality when it hurts your team.

That said, I'm in my 40s now and still don't think I could bring myself to appreciate a goal scored against Dundee.

James Grady regrets playing for United because the highlight of his career was scoring a thunderblaster for the Dee at the sticklebrick.

Tosh McKinlay played 100+ games for Celtic so probably doesn't consider this moment as the highlight of his career, but f**k me, what a hit.

I know what you mean, when you're young you need to pick a side a lot more, whether its music, football, politics.... everything. When you get older its easier to take a step back and see things for what they are. Would we have loved to have Sturrock at Dens ? Um... yeah, same as a lot of other players over the years. We still have that wee bit of tribalism in us though, I'll not be praising any goal against us, especially goals scored by our rivals, however good they were. I'm not immune from it either.

I agree with all that Chomp but you are always rational. You don't throw your toys out of the pram even when the filth score 6 against us!

I reserve the right to lose the plot when our players lose heavily to any team playing in dayglo.

Do you have to Cobra? I'll forever be haunted by not seeing that goal.
