All great shouts lads. The closest we had to a ‘hero’ last season was Nathan Ralph. Let me through in Bobby Mann.

Loved Bobby Mann. Old fashioned centre half. I don’t think I ever seen him lose a header.

Already mentioned but Milan Palenik and Eric Paton are probably two of my “under-recognised” favourite players. Both brilliant for us when you consider the position we were in when they played.

Joe McBride. Lovely winner in the 4-3 game at Dens, loads of skill but never really fulfilled his potential.

Alessandro Romano, one of the lesser known Italian journeymen pro's we imported around 2000-01.

I recall the home tie against Sartid, it was scoreless and near the end. One of the opposition feigned injury on the touchline and rolled several times back onto the park.

Romano duly grabbed both his legs and attempted to drag him off the park before the ref intervened. Recall thinking, you'll do me my son.

Another one, Stuart Rafferty, absolute machine.

Best regards

Ah, forgot about him. I had to miss that game die to a cousin's wedding. My old man had said "we never beat them at Send anyway". #seething.

Vague recollection of McBride scoring a glorious bicycle kick against Morton the season after

I thought he was the poorest of the Bonettis' first batch of big name imports tbh. I genuinely can't remember him doing anything noteworthy. Marocco was a superb full back in the same period.

Graham Harvey.

Always overshadowed by the Coyne/Wright partnership. Probably the best I've ever seen in a Dundee shirt beside Caballero at using his body to shield and hold up the ball. Wasn't a big lump though, he could play a bit too. I think he'd have scored far more goals if he wasn't the third option in a two man forward line.

Courier was a narcissistic waster. No doubt he had talent but he played like an 11 year old who thought he was better than everyone else and whose only goal in life was to get his ego massaged.

IIRC he was a fairly consistent striker before we signed Coyne.

Harvey was never prolific, too slow, but I think he did play his best football for us during the Coyne/Wright era, when he got his chances.

Harvey had good touch, I liked him too but he was as slow as a week in the gaol.

Michel Pagoud (six). Remember we had to win by eight at Stranraer I think to go up, had a wonder save when he was falling backwards.

Stuart Rafferty was the man. Would love a midfield just now that contained Rafferty, Brown and Connor. 

Who’s the missing player out of that midfield 4, can’t remember.
