That is my strongest memory of him. He was running riot in the first 20 minutes of that Cup Final, then Sutton hit him with a forearm smash which deserved a red card, but Dallas (not for the first time) bottled it.
That assault effectively put him out of the 2002 World Cup Finals, but there was some delicious karma served up around 4:46 pm that day, when it was Sutton who failed to track Lovenkrands as he ran in to head home the winner from Neil McCann's cross.
I worked in Dundee in the early 2000's and his signed picture was up in a lot of pubs even then. I think The Club Bar still have one up just now.Getting booted all over the park by the Cameroonians at the World Cup.
Being utterly amazed that he ended up playing for Dundee.
Surprised that he was still as good when we signed him.
running the tims ragged in the league cup finalSigned from Dundee fc for £900k in June 2001 at the ripe old age of 34.
50 appearances for the club scoring 13 goals. (I think)
International pedigree, scoring in the 2003 league cup final v Celtic and the final league day of 2003 V Dunfermline.
What was your first thoughts when we signed him? Did he exceed your expectations?
Any bears have any good stories regarding meeting him or being in his company?
