Just had a nosey at this topic and it reminded me of a wee poem my dad told me called Auntie Bella

 

Ever since the day ma dug et Auntie Bella,

Ah've been wonderin what sort of dug ah've goat,

For it's grew up awfy big an' tawny yella'

Wi a great hairy collar roon its throat.

It wiz jist a poor wee pup on the night ah picked it up'

It wiz howlin in the dark jist alang frae Calderpark,

Now whenever people see me they shout - Lion!

But ah've never told a lie in a' ma life!

 

Ever since the day ma dug et Auntie Bella,

Things have happenned in a way ye'd no' belive,

Let me pat yir dug said one wee fella,

Noo he walks aboot wi' nothin up his sleeve.

When ah sign on at the buroo noo there isny any queue,

An' the clerk says don't come doon we will send yir money roon,

But whenever people see me they shout - Lion!

Cross ma heart! Ah've aye been honest a' ma life!

 

Since ma dug had Auntie Bella for it's dinner,

Ah've been takin' money aff they racin' mugs,

At the greyhound tracks ma Fido's aye the winner,

But the trouble is they're runnin' short o' dugs,

Once a butcher for a bet gave a sheeps heid tae ma pet,

An' ye shoulda heard him yell when it chewed his heid as well.

But whenever people see me they shout - Lion!

Ask about! Ah've been honest a' ma life!

 

Ever since the day poor Auntie Bella got guzzled,

A' the neebors seem tae think that ah'm tae blame,

But ah jist forgot that Fido wizny muzzled,

When ah reassured ma auntie it wiz tame,

So she let it lick her haun - an' the next thing she wiz gone' And although I miss her so - still she left me a' her dough,

But whenever people see me they shout - Lion,

Clertygawd! Ah've been honest a' ma life!

 

I have been in France and Spain and Portabella,

I've been moved on by the polis many times,

When it's wet I always bring ma umberella,

But I only mention that because it rhymes.

If ye think ah'm tellin' lies then yir in for a surprise,

For ma pet is ower there - jist behind that wummin's chair,

So whenever people see me and shout - Lion

I can prove I've aye been honest all ma life!

For ma pet has went and et some fella's wife!

I think...... Yes..... maybe....?

If so and Rodgers ain't talking pish with 60,000 at CP every fortnight.

That's some turnaround from the previous couple of seasons.

A blind man and his dug knew Celtic Park would be full again this season, of course BR has helped but not half as much as the team in blue.

Crowds are up from the past few seasons but they are not selling out but the days of the 2000 home crowds are gone.

Crowds will probably fall slightly as this relentless procession goes on

Hi,

 

My name is Adam Martin, I am a 4th year sports development student at UWS and I am seeking assistance for my dissertation.

 

My topic is: Paying the price for supporting your team: An investigation into the effects of ticket cost and attendances at a Scottish Premiership club.

 

I have decided to choose Dundee FC as the club to investigate as I know that fan numbers have been affected in recent history, along with financial difficulties. My friend Mark O'Hara also plays for them so I thought he would be able to help me get in contact with relevant people if needed.

 

So far I am at 134 responses and need 160 so I would greatly appreciate it if you could take 5-10 minutes to fill out my questionnaire. I understand this is a Scottish football forum and I am talking specifically about Dundee, so even if you've only attended Dens Park once or twice or you want to talk generally about Scottish football then that's fine, it's just so I have more numbers.

 

The answers are completely anonymous and if you decide to withdraw from the study at any time, you do not have to give any reasons for doing so. This would be a great help and could possibly help with ticket pricing in the future of Scottish football.

 

The link to the questionnaire is- https://www.surveymo...co.uk/r/DJZ3SFN

 

If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact me via email- B00284621@studentmail.uws.ac.uk

 

Thank you
