Has he turned things around, or was it just a freak result?
Either way that was a good result for Dundee fc.

One swallow and all that, Stevie. I remember us beating Dundee 6-1 at home one season, while we were bottom of the league,

It didn't stop us getting relegated, all the same.

I'm pretty sure the year we beat Dundee 6-1 we stayed up. We also won 1-0 vs Dundee utd a few weeks after

Was that not the 5-0 with the Derek young hatrick? I can’t recall a 6-1.

We stayed up that season, followed that result up with THAT win at Tannadice, before nearly throwing it all away at Killie....

and Dundee dropping that season was as much their capitulation as our rise from the death

Don't know about Dundee turning the corner, but what about the 'old' guy's contribution.

He and Dobbie, also Boyd, could show the young ones a thing or two about being a striker.

It must be in their blood.

Massive win for them last night and hauls Accies back into it.
I'd like Hamilton to come down.
Don't want to see Dundee relegated because I rate McIntyre and wouldn't like to see Adam Hammill's St Mirren come down either.

The Dundee 6-1 game we were definitely relegated that season. Up till that game, we had only scored goals that year in the Scottish Cup, most remembered the 2-0 game against Rangers. It was a torrid time as we were not scoring at all, then the 6-1 game came along and we had a glimmer of hope, only for us to be finally relegated in a 2-2 draw at Tannadice. The funny thing I remember about that game was the Cameroonian DUFC supporters club huddled like penguins. Also the size of our support that day was tremendous.

Was the 6-1 game not against Motherwell back on the day?

The 6-1 Dundee game was in season 1988/89 I think? As discussed above, we had went on a long scoreless run before hand. That might have been the season we went through 4 or 5 different keepers?

The big win against Motherwell was only 4-1 and was in season 2006/7.

Mark Smith beat around 6 of their team to score one of the goals in the 2nd half.

The 6-1 v Dundee was when we had Mark Smith and Willie Callaghan junior playing up front and Davie Holt marshalling the defence. Dundee had ex Par, Billy Kirkwood playing for them.

The singing section were in buoyant mood. "Billy Kirkwood, Billy Kirkwood, what a differece you have made......"

I'm fairly certain, without looking it up, that we went down that season, Saline.

I cannot for the life of me figure out how that song would go? What was the tune?

The mowhawk (also referred to as a mohican) is a hairstyle in which, in the most common variety, both sides of the head are shaven, leaving a strip of noticeably longer hair in the centre.

It’s to the tune of a hymn that I don’t really know. But if you remember back to late 70’s early 80’s when we’d sing “Athhhletic, Athhhletic we’ll support you ever more”
That’s the tune.

I think that's the Welsh national anthem. Instead of 'Bread of heaven, bread of heaven, feed me till I want no more...'

I mind that song, Stevie...

There used to be this drunken muppet in The Choir (who was quite amusing, actually) who always changed the words to "Playtex bra, Playtex bra, we'll support you evermore.."

He'd probably get a lifetime ban for that these days...

We went straight away after that game in March 1988 to see Scotland playing in Malta the following midweek. Safe to say we were in good spirits after a rare win. Other than the cup win that was a tough period.

It was 6-1 and I remember HansSegars celebrating by walking on his hands. Yes,it was a swallow and we were relegated.
We must have fielded about 6 different goalies that season due to injuries.

My bad, SN and yes, the ironic song for Billy Kirkwood was to the tune of "Bread of Heaven." I thought he was one of the poorest players ever to pull on a Pars top, but Jim Leishman had a high regard for him. He could stay within 20 yards of the ball for most of the game and hardly ever get a touch.

Watched the Ayr United cup replay that year when 11,000 came out midweek for that game and some of the tackling was tough. Makes today’s football look like ballet. Kirkwood maybe had his only good game for us at that time. I remember a Leishman interview about Kirkwood at that time and he had the usual defence of he is an influential player, blah, blah, blah - in reality it means he just is no very good.

Aye, fair play to Kirkwood, he had a very good game that evening. Most Pars fans remember it because he hadn't had one before....... a bit like Jim Bett having one very good game for Scotland.

Right song but its not the Welsh national Anthem. Just a second favourite of theirs.
