I may be wrong but are you thinking of Joe Reid here?

I remember him from his time at Stirling Albion a couple years later, when manager at Annfield, John Brogan signed a rake of ex team mates and I know Joe played with Accies around then, he had a quite magnificent moustache and mullet combination back then, not sure if he played for Forfar but he certainly to me at least, sounds like the player you could be describing here?

I wouldn't call that moustache particularly magnificent...

OK so perhaps not as relevant but id like to add this little diity from my past.

I have always been a Dundee Utd Fan despite living in the west coast in my younger years but I always remember being at the game for Celtic v Nottingham Forest in 1983/84 UEFA Cup at Celtic Park. What an atmosphere - Celtic came away from the first leg with a 0-0 draw and expectation in Glasgow was high. Must have been 66,000 at least in the ground and I was there in the away end. Remember the Tennants girls doing a trackside promo. To me the best memory was when Cloughie came on the pitch to acknowledge the Stadium crowd before KO. What a legend.

Bobby Lennox heads home a goal for Celtic in a 3-2 Scottish Cup win v Kilmarnock at Celtic Park in the Shamrock away kit, back in the days when the home side changed kits in instances of a clash, although Kilmarnock appear to be wearing an all blue kit here?

Is the Celtic player in the middle of the picture wearing a bucket hat?

Presumably it's Killie goalie Campbell Forsyth, who a few years later became the only keeper to concede a goal scored by Peter Shilton.

Joey Ramone at the back.

Francis Rossi to the right of him as well.

When I saw The Ramones at Barrolands, Joey's only audience interaction was to say the immortal words "Gee. It's great to be back here in.....Scatlaaaaand! Take it Dee Dee".

He was clearly referring to this previous trip to Annfield.

That was my thought too - it seems a very high quality image considering when it was probably taken.

I'm guessing it was taken straight from the photographer's personal collection. Obviously some folks are seething at the thought of 10 in a row.

Behind the goals at Dens. I was in this at the Hibs Aberdeen semi final in 1986 and have no recollection of it being this big. It looks enormous here. IMG-20200713-WA0013.jpeg

Had a carry out a few times in there before the seats went in. Think both League Cup Finals United won there, there were no seats, and I'm unsure about the league winning match in 1983.

Coincidentally, today the official Dundee site used the picture below to report on the events around their ground record crowd of over 43,000 in 1953.

As soon as I was old enough to go with my mates I moved to the south Enclosure. My auld man always stood on the ' Provie' (Provost Road end). I can see the exact spot where him and his mates stood on this photo although for the first 14 years I went to Dens it was terracing. Fantastic view from the top of that end and great atmosphere when busy

Scotty, can you remember what year they put the seats in? Thanks.

1 and only time in that end was 5-1 game in 1980, don’t know if any Dundee fans will remember it, don’t think there were seats in it that day.

Nae seats in the midweek game there about a fortnight later that Celtic won 2-0 and saw Dundee relegated.

That game's on Youtube.

No sign of benches.  Both ends seem to be largely filled with Celtic fans.
