The Club That Vanished


Recommended Posts

Sky sports are showing a hour long programme about the rise and fall of Gretna.

Really enjoyed it. There was quite a few bits that Dundee fans may or may not enjoy.

Lots of interviews/goals from James Grady, our Paul being sent off in the cup final, our semi final exit at their hands. Great comment from Rowan Alexander "we knew if we got Dundee in the semi we would reach the final" Think that comment confirmed he knew,like all Dundee fans at the time knew that Alan Kernaghan didn't have a clue.

Enjoy

Every time I see one of these stories about Gretna and it gets to their cup run, I always watch with interest and then get shocked when it reaches that moment where they are in the semi and I realise it was us that they played (I genuinely had forgotten)!

It tells a lot about cups that we had our worst ever league placing of all time (tied as 19th team in Scottish football with 1937/38) and we reached a cup final with a lucky draw!

Would have liked to have seen how Alex Rae's team would have done if we hadn't suffered with so many absentees (McMenamin and Curier cup tied. McDonald and Robertson suspended. Swankie, Lyle and someone else I think were injured) when going into the game away to Queen of the South in the quarter finals. We are well overdue a nice Scottish Cup run. Brilliantly knocking out Aberdeen and then drawing Celtic immediately was sickening last season.

Funnily enough I was watching the Gretna programme on Sky a few months ago and when we came on I was like WTF? I barely remembered the game.

For some reason that game just doesn't feel part of our history. Going to Hampden is usually pretty special but instantly forgettable with Kerno as manager.

Our starting XI was Jack, McCluskey, Mann, Calum McDonald, Dixon, McManus, Robertson, Smith, Brady, Deasley, Lynch

Not saying they were all bad players but Dundee never have and never will take a weaker team to the national stadium.

I certainly will never forget that disaster of a game.. Jack flogging the 1st goal and then gifting them a penalty second half, that Ryan McGuffie winning the penalty and scoring I think.

We were truly woeful and summed us up at that time in our history.. My auntie threw her scarf away after the third ane I remember that.. She regrets that every time I remind her now though haha truly gutted that day.

Only Mann, Dixon, Robertson, Smith, Brady and Lynch could be termed as 'decent' from that team.

It was 2 season's to early for Dixon and Robertson whilst Mann, Brady and Lynch were just championship/first division steady eddie's nothing more, (And nothing wrong with that) nothing less whilst Smith was a club legend that was beginning to wane.

The kicker though - having the most gutless keeper in the goal we've ever had.

He had 2 (TWO!) seasons at the club. Incredible.
