Book Description

The remarkable story of Dundee FC Season 2010/11

On October 15th 2010 Dundee FC went into administration for the second time in seven years and the consensus was the Club would be lucky to survive. Thirteen members of staff were made redundant and the Club were given a 25 point penalty from the Scottish League and looked doomed to relegation but those who loved the The Dee were having none of it. 

What transpired was a story of fairytale proportions as the fans raised the money to rescue the Club while the players went on an incredible unbeaten run to avoid the drop, using loanees, trialists, youths and players from the Junior ranks to supplement the now threadbare squad. 

New book "It's All About the Memories" by Jacqui Robertson and Kenny Ross tells the story of a season that will never be forgotten. Using exclusive interviews by those directly involved, it tells the story of how after the tragedy and hurt of going into administration, the players and the fans came together and refused to let the Club die. Veteran goalkeeper Robert Douglas was almost in tears when he reflected on the season saying football is "all about the memories" - and this book will preserve the memory of an incredible season.
All profits from the sale of this book goes to the Dundee FC Supporters' Society.

More About the Author

Kenny Ross was born in Dundee in 1973 and grew up in the City of Discovery where he went to school at Rockwell Primary and the High School of Dundee. In 1991 Kenny headed north to attend the University of Aberdeen where he gained an M.A. (Hons) degree in History - International Relations before completing a Postgraduate Certificate in Education at the Northern College to become a secondary school history teacher. Kenny has taught in both Dundee and Aberdeen and now works in a Sports College Secondary School in Newcastle after moving to the Toon in 2005.

Kenny is a huge Dundee F.C. fan, attending his first match at the age of three and he has been a season ticket holder and share holder for most of his adult life. He cites his highlight of following The Dee as travelling on the team's flight to Albania for a U.E.F.A. Cup tie against Vllaznia in 2003 in the wake of the Scottish Cup Final that year and despite now living in the north-east of England he still attends most Dundee games and in August 2014 became Chairman of the Dundee FC Supporters Association.

Now the official club historian, Kenny has written for the Dundee F.C. match day magazine since 1992 and in 2014 won the Best Regular Award in the annual programme awards. He also regularly writes for the official Dundee F.C. website and does the live updates for the website on matchdays and post match DFCTV interviews. He has also had articles published in the Scotland on Sunday, Sunday Mail and Daily Mirror newspapers and the football magazines Four, Four Two and Back Pass.

Kenny's writing was influenced by his favourite novel Fever Pitch by Nick Hornby and in 2003 he completed his own book Dundee Champions of Scotland which quickly became the most successful book ever written on a Dundee F.C. related topic. Telling the story of Dundee's Scottish League Championship triumph in 1962 and it's subsequent European adventure, it is now in it's third print in paperback following the sell out of two hardback editions and is now available on Kindle.

In 2012, on the 50th Anniversary of Dundee FC winning the League championship, Kenny was asked by Dundee FC to write the commentary for a DVD for the celebration dinner as well as the profiles from for the Championship winning players inducted into DFC's Hall of Fame and used his Dundee Champions of Scotland book as the basis for this work.

In 2010 Kenny completed his second book entitled Dundee Legends which charts the career of over eighty of the best players and managers to have been with the Dens Park club with each biography carrying an illustration of the featured legend. It has locally and nationally received some very positive reviews.

Kenny co-wrote his third book "It's All About the Memories" with DFCTV reporter Jacqui Robertson. It tells the incredible story of Dundee FC's 2010/11 season where they went into administration for the second time and were docked 25 points by the Scottish League but after monumental efforts of players and fans alike, the club was saved when they overhauled the points deduction to avoid relegation and raise £250,000 to stave off liquidation and become a fans owned club. It's All About the Memories has been nominated for 2012 Sports Book of the Year and is now available on Kindle.

Also in 2012, Kenny wrote his fourth book 'Dundee's Hampden Heroes' to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Dundee becoming the first club to win back to back League Cups.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great piece of oral football history 1 Mar. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This book will always be very important to Dundee supporters like me as a reminder of an amazing season. However, it will also have a place in helping other people understand something about what being a supporter means, and what a club like Dundee means to its supporters.

The book consists largely of interviews, which give the key characters the chance to tell their own story. It's a valuable piece of oral football history and I am sure that future writers and researchers will come back to this book. In particularly, it should also be a useful resource for anyone who wants to learn about the astonishing financial shambles of the football industry.

Aside from the financial issues, the book's a marvellous sporting tale of a tiny squad going on an improbably long unbeaten run in the most difficult circumstances, culminating in real "Roy of the Rovers" moments like Neil McCann's winner against Raith Rovers (the book's cover).

After seeing my club going into administration twice in the last 10 years I've become convinced that far too few supporters understand why football is in such a mess. Worse, the footballing authorities don't get it either, and the press are largely clueless too. It's a complex subject and the authorities and football journalists usually address superficial symptoms in a glib and sometimes ill informed way.

This book doesn't attempt to delve into the deep underlying problems, but it explains how financial disaster panned out at one club. Reading the book it's much easier to understand how it all happened, stage by stage, with people taking disastrous decisions that seemed right at the time. Other clubs, perhaps many, will go through the same traumas. The system is set up in a way that makes it inevitable.

As someone who "enjoyed" a very difficult season for Dundee Football Club last year, I can truly say I enjoyed this more! Great detail, and interesting in-depth interviews with many of those involved both on and off the pitch. A must read for anyone who supports the team.
