Dundee United v Dundee. Dundee Derby

In response to Crawford and DTID, every club has c***s. There was United players being spat at and coins thrown in that corner Dundee had but i wouldnt be tarring Dundee fans with the scum brush because of it. Unfortunately, there seems to be a trend of football supporters using racist language at games and thinking its acceptable, and its 100% true regardless of who you support. It needs nipped right in the fuckin bud but i think its better from fellow fans rather than anyone else. A wrap in the puss is a perfect deterrent

Again, did this actually happen? Looked like a pie and food packaging to me, never saw (or heard) of coins or anyone spitting. I haven’t watched it back — simply asking if this is actually the case or whether it’s the usual embellishments.

There was definitely coins from what i saw. The spitting was second hand and also what id read on another United page. Regardless, we have the best derby in scottish football and shouldnt be resorting to this shite. Its actually a sad case of affairs that we are speaking about this when there was yet another belter of a match

I saw one coin being thrown from the lower. After that I saw other things but they didn't look like coins. 

All clubs have arseholes in their support and as others have covered these things need to be self policed. Going to a steward is the obvious answer and sounds easy enough but getting involved when you just want to watch a game of football will always get in the way of that. 

I agree that the build up to the last few derbies has felt a bit more poisonous than what I can remember.

The guy who did this was sat about 4-5 rows in front of me. There’s a picture going around on twitter just before the incident happened and he can be clearly identified from the picture.

 

EIDT: Just looked at the picture again and you can’t actually see his face. I’m sure some would know him from the picture though.

This incident was in clear view of nearly half a dozen police officers. They were more than happy to huckle some daft laddie who got a bit over zealous and made it onto trackside when we scored. Yet, they blatantly ignored a fan physically laying his hands on a player.

I get that coins etc can be hard to identify and better to be left for retrospective punishment through the use of CCTV, but this guy was in the front row.

Worrying that you are getting 'whatboutery' from my posts. Anyone with half a brain can see the message ive been putting across. For someone who has had a pop at somebody for trying to point score in this, you arent coming across to well yourself

I thought the poisonous atmosphere between the fans and clubs started very quickly after the Thompson’s took over down the road. 
 

Reading Rumple’s post on another site about the treatment of our media team at Tannadice doesn’t surprise me 1 little bit.

aye you could be right think mr eddie "you can change your wife etc etc etc" Thompson aka a motherwell supporter that started to give them ideas above their station...and they lapped it up....growing up in the 80s and 90s I cannot think of one example when there was any hatred directed at a Dundee or united fan.

I think there’s very little real animosity between both sets of supporters.  

I don’t think there’s any merit in exaggerating it.

On a personal note, any real aggro has come in the last 20ish years between Dundee nearly going out of business twice whilst we revelled in it, to the Doon derby where c***s were bringing coffins etc to the match hoping for our ending

No, they’re few in number and insignificant.  We don’t need folk like you talking them up.
