Hall Of Fame
Following poem was cited by Dundee Utd supporter Gary Robertson (in true Dundonian) on the night of the first Hall Of Fame awards.
Fae places near an far thi came
Made Tannadice thir hame fae hame
Thi stuff o lehjind, thi stuff o dreamz
Playin fir United wearin black an tangerine
An ithirz fae that era before
Wen black an wite wir thi colours, now pert o Arab folklore
Eh guys like Jimmy Brigg, wah served thi Club sih well
Wi a passion an conviction, in a distinguished fifteen year spell
Thi stalwart crehd Doug Smith, 'Mr Dependable' wiz thi tag
18 yearz a tough centre-half, an nivir once did ee lose eez rag
Thi great Dennis Gillespie, hud thi flair, thi goals, thi skillz
Eez memory styz waarm in thi hertz - o thi fans - an ayewiz will
Fae Denmark came Finn Dossing, wah buhlt a goalscorin pedigree
A lehjind o 1965, an thi 'Massacre o Dundee'
An movin ti anither era - three o thi very best
Three men wah rose ti become giants, wi a talent thit simply impressed
Paul Hegarty, Maurice Malpas, Davie Narey - it was a priviledge ti waatch yiz lay
Eh think eh speak fir abidee here - it was a priviledge ti waatch yiz play
An so, on this special night - there yih hae it - thi 'Magnificent Seven'named
Rightfully takkin thir prestigious place, in Dundee United's Hall o Fame!
