Who Are Dundee’S Best Xi This Season?

(Edited to remove DABS)

It’s been a roller coaster season for the Dundee clubs with plenty highs and lows during the campaign.

For both top half finishes in the Premiership means it can be put down as a decent campaign. For the Dark Blue half of the city sixth spot is an achievement, but poor form recently means the season’s ending disappointingly for the Tangerines.

Individually it’s been a mixed bag. Great for some, average for others and for a few poor.

Our football writers Tom Duthie and Liam Kennedy focus on the squads and come up with the pair’s best line-ups.

Dundee

SCOTT BAIN — Bar Craig Gordon Bain has been the top flight’s best keeper. Commands his box brilliantly and is one of the most agile, mobile goalie’s around.

PAUL McGINN — A dependable, consistent first season on stepping up from the Championship. Does his defending without much fuss and is an outlet on the right.

JAMES McPAKE — Player of the season. A rock at the heart of the backline. Puts his body on the line every time he runs on the park.

THOMAS KONRAD — Can struggle in the big games but has formed a decent partnership with McPake. Might have a battle next season with a centre-half targeted.

GARY IRVINE — Edges out Willie Dyer to the left-back slot. If I could I might have put him at right-back too. Probably his best season in dark blue.

KEVIN THOMSON — One quick look at results tells you when Thomson plays Dundee are more likely to get points. At his best he controls the pace of a game. It’s a case of what could’ve been had injuries not taken their toll.

JIM McALISTER — He wears his heart very much on his sleeve. Gave everything for the club in his time here. Would play in goal if asked. A true professional.

PAUL McGOWAN — Forget the off-the-field stuff, McGowan has been outstanding. Established himself as a key midfielder. His energy and tenacity are invaluable.

GARY HARKINS — Injuries have made it stop-start in Harkin’s third coming. Performances at the beginning of the campaign have secured him a slot in the XI.

GREG STEWART — The find of the year. Recognised as one of the division’s best strikers by his fellow professionals, Stewart looks like he’s got even more in his locker.

DAVID CLARKSON — Some might be a touch critical but he certainly repaid his wages in the goals he scored mid-season. From debuting at Ross County, he notched in eight on the bounce.
