Dundee Football Club do have a tradition of sorts: they have produced outstanding players, won all the major Scottish trophies and, in 1963, reached the semi-final of the European Cup. For the next three decades, however, their story was one of gradual decline. When brothers Peter and Jimmy Marr, local businessmen, took over at Dens in 1997, they set about transforming the fortunes of the club. Having battled to get promotion to the Scottish Premier League and build new stands, Peter Marr proceeded to make a leap of cultural faith. He knew that quality football was the key to any form of success and that, generally speaking, it could be found on the European continent. Thus he installed an Italian, Ivano Bonetti as manager who quickly assembled a squad of outstanding international talent, with former Argentinian superstar Claudio Caniggia the jewel in the crown. Results have been both good and bad - and sometimes downright weird - but the football on show has been consistently entertaining and frequently breathtaking. No Dundee FC fan will ever forget season 2000-01 and in this book Jim Wilkie charts the amazing transformation of the club to Bonetti's Blues.
