Watcing the Dee On the Terracing


Cobra

Recommended Posts

For those old enough, what do you remember about watching Dundee from the terracing?

I used to worry about the life being crushed out of me as a kid when if we scored in the derby because there always seemed to be a bit on a stampede and pure mayhem with elbows everywhere.

I know what you mean. When the surge started you were praying your legs were going faster than the guys behind you. 😂

The old away end at the dump, either behind the goal or in the 'seggy' was terrifying at times for a young kid. Quickly learn not to lean on the crush barriers at a derby, about had my lungs crushed when the crowd surged forward, eyes popping out the head 🤪

Was that the "cliff" on the north side of the dump? Remember being there one October with fireworks being tossed back and forth. Muirton was always good for a laugh as well. Segregation on terrace but not in the bogs!

Always remember the 3-1 win at the dump in '87. I was 7yrs old, my Grandad took me and my older brother to the game, queues for the 'seggy' or 'cliff' were right down the street, didn't get in until after the match had kicked off. Just remember running up the steps ahead of my Grandad and brother as soon as I was through the turnstile, got to the top, squeezed between two guys who were standing at the back, just in time to see Super Tommy Coyne put us 1-0 up. Brilliant memory that :D

Standing on The Cliff was highlight of any season for me. The crush of bodies, songs, atmosphere, mental surges and celebrations when we scored.

Regardless of whether we leave or remain at Dens, would love to turn the clock back and create a terrace, as steep as permissible, for safe standing in line with modern safety standards.

I did the same, never seemed to work for some reason

You're right, it didn't. It could be pretty scary as a youngster in there but it was the only place I wanted to be when we were at the dump. The only time I went behind the goal was when we went in at the Tannadice Street turnstiles and didn't know a fence had been put up splitting behind the goal and the cliff.
