THE UNION JACK CHANT - 1970'S

Back in the early 70's, when fan rivalry included the odd bout of bigotry in the banter, Dee fans sometimes borrowed ideas from the Gers when it came to singing chants on matchday.
As well as flaunting Union Jacks at matches (which was copied off Rangers), the Derry used to burst into the "Born Under A Union Jack" chant, a well known Gers song, but obviously, Dundee's version having a tweak to the wording. The original tune, by Lee Marvin is called "Wandering Star". Here below is a wee reminder of that very tune, with sing-a-long lyrics!
I wouldn't be surprised if it's outlawed now!!

THE DUNDEE DOLL


On a recent trip to Prague, my brother spotted this Dundee FC Russian doll on display in a shop. He first took a picture of it on the shelf in the shop (top photo), then he decided to buy it and so brought it back with him. The other picture is it back home in Dundee, separated into it's segments, with the added bonus of there being different players names on their backs.
Those who made it to the Prague Doll Of Fame were - Antoine-Curier, Paton, McHale, Malone and McMenamin.

COUSIN'S GOAL AGAINST ANDERLECHT - 1963

40,000 were at Dens to see this European Cup Quarter Final against Anderlecht.
We won it 2-1, with the above panorama showing the moment the celebrations started after Cousin grabbed a goal late on in the match.

The Dundee team huddled together for a photo opportunity at Dens in the 1980-81 season.
None of them camera shy it seems anyway!
Thanks to GK.
