He ladles on the praise and gives an outsider's assessment of a very good team.
    He certainly wouldn't be the first journo who submitted an article to his publication, and then was unimpressed by the efforts of a sub-editor desperate fo find an attention-grabbing headline.
    If anything, Patullo gives great respect to United, albeit in a grudging fashion of a rival. It is an examination of what it is like to be a fan of a club whose neighbour is more successful, like Everton fans, or Manchester City (before the oil money) fans.
    On other subjects, and other football teams, Patullo is a good writer.
    And I am a huge fan of Nutmeg magazine. It portrays Scottish football in a grown-up and thoughtful manner, beyond the stuck-in-the-past way that Off The Ball (for instance) carries on with its childish soundalike daftness (let's hear your ideas for a potato-themed XI harharhar!) it has been doing since the early 1990s. Football supporters have moved on from that.
    In my opinion.
    You'll get banned from here... you're meant to call Patullo names😄

    So given that peter, I take it you are one of the level headed who would rather not be embarrassed nor portrayed as small minded over the ‘Doon’ Derby? Well done Sir!

    Mair restricted views in that one stand,
    than in any other across Scotland,
    but its been advantageous to many Dees,
    cos Ralphies chip they could not see.

    I turned up for that game. After the season we had had, if it wasn't mathematically certain that week, then it would have been the next. However in a way I am glad you Dees finally in my lifetime had something to crow about.

    I never could understand why young people had attached themselves to the Dee but their reward came when they went along and their team put a nail in our already built coffin.

    Petty you didn't consolidate yourself in the Premiership in our absence. My prediction is if you don't go bust that you will spend another 50 years in our shadow.

    Perhaps a rich American will come along and transform you- build a new stadium and everything. I don't think that has already happened has it?
