There’s only one thing worse than the ignominy of relegation for Dundee Utd.
The final nail being hammered home by your Dundee Derby rivals is the worst thing that could happen to Arab fans. For The Dee fans it is a Dream they could scarcely have even imagined a few seasons ago.
Dundee fans have been looking to this moment for months, hoping against hope that they could be the final death knell on Dundee Utd’s Premiership status. The dream is close to being realised while The Terror’s relegation nightmare looks like turning into a relegation hell.
It’s the kind of thing that will never be forgotten on Tayside. An event so tremendous that it will supersede all other events in the near past and the distant future. Already christened The Doondee Derby the home side only have to avoid defeat to send their neighbours doon to the Championship.
Relegation will be made all the more unbearable by the financial uncertainty that attaches itself to it. Dundee Utd spent a lot of money in an attempt to stave off relegation, a gamble that hasn’t paid off.
Players like Sinama-Pongolle, Guy Demel, Billy McKay and Kawashima were supposed to bring the requisite quality. Defensive ineptitude has plagued them all season long but it’s been more flail than flair from the supposed big hitters.
They have one last chance to redeem themselves to the fans by winning the last Dundee Derby for at least one full season. Given the gutless way in which they have capitulated in the last few games you would be hard pressed to have any faith in it.
There’s a hammer hanging over a nail at Dens Park that’s about to hit a blow that will be remembered for a very, very long time.
