Tantrums


Cobra

Recommended Posts

I was so distraught as a kid when Dundee lost I'd throw my scarf onto the track at full-time. Either that or I'd throw it into a skip on the way down the Hulltoon? Was it just me who behaved in that daft way or did others lose it when we lost?

More a greeter than a tantrum thrower. Left Dens in tears a fair few times as a bairn.

To each his own. 

Every time I climbed the old steps and heard the roar of the Derry I was on cloud 9. Every time we had a bad day it felt like a betrayal. 

Football fans tend to see things as black and white but it's more extreme when you're young.

Can't say I remember tears. Just rage. 😆

I've booted a few chairs in my time. Still prefer a tantrum to just existential doom, which is how I felt after Dobbie scored immediately after we equalised against them earlier this season.

Thankfully I got to the point where setbacks and defeat don't ruin my day, although I didn't take that Schenk horror show too well.

The Schenk horror show was probably my first tantrum in about 30 years and the last one since. Although, I still think of it more as the Konrad and McPake horror show more than Schenk. An utterly woeful defensive performance between these two and several wicked deflections, Schenk’s obvious incompetence was exposed much more than it normally should have been. Still didn’t stop me being in a complete cream puff for a few days after though.

I remember going through the goals and I think I came to the conclusion that Konrad was to at fault for four of them. Don't recall McPake having a nightmare although obviously he has to take some of the blame.

While Schenk wasn't helped at all by his defence I think his positioning was woeful. He was out of his depth but you're right to say that heavy defeat wasn't all about him.

Did we ever establish whether the rumour of Letheren being too hungover to play was true? I thought it seemed a bit far-fetched.
