Dundee are the Alba Cup Champions

What a day & what a birthday present !!!!!!!!!!! Its been a long time since we won anything of significance, but hopefully this is the first part of the double. 6000+ fans cheering us on, a great performance by the team in the second half, and a few bevies before & after the match. PERFECT !!!!!!!

Cup Final Sunday had a great turnout at the Clansman. There were 50 Dees from all over Fife, including 3 special guests from the Dees Down South, who were made welcome, and also joined us on the bus to the match. To Ann, Dot & Mike, we hope that you enjoyed your day, and you will be made more than welcome, the next time that you are in Fife. Please look us up.

At 3.45, I bet that there were few in dark blue who would have thought that we would be the team that were partying at full time. The first half was abysmal, and a goal didn't look in the offing. Second half was a totally different game. An OG, a sending off, joyous fans on 3 sides of the stadium, and the winning goal scored by Fife Dark Blue sponsored Craig Forsyth. (I always said that sponsoring him was a good investment).

 I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall, in Dundee's dressing room at half-time. A Jocky special pep talk that done the trick. It was like a different team for the second 45. But just to say that ''Dundee are the champions'' makes me feel proud to be a Dee, and it makes all the years of winning nothing, worth it.

Photos of the day are available on the link http://www.fifedarkblues.co.uk/Gallery.htm

Rab's Big Moment - Fife Dark Blue spotted on TV celebrating

We have exclusive footage of FDB member, Rab Thomson punching the air, with joy, as Scotland score their first goal against Macedonia. Rab has taken his new found fame well, and although now a worldwide star, he remembers where his roots are. He was spotted outside Forthbank Stadium yesterday, mingling with his minions, with his entourage of management, minders & groupies, but always has time for his adoring fans.

When interviewed yesterday, pre-Stirling Albion, his lasting comment was '' If you want an exclusive, talk to my agent !!!!''.

Rab is available for corporate events, autograph signings & general decorating work. Footage can be viewed on the link below, 17 seconds in.
