Om What's It All About Ralphie?
Ralph Milne was born in Dundee and lived out many a young footballers dream. On leaving school he signed for Dundee United and gradually forced his way into a team full of great players. With electrifying pace and exceptional talent he quickly established himself as a fans favourite, producing some dazzling performances at home and on the highest of European stages. He was part of the legendary team which defied all the odds to win the Scottish Premier Division in 1983. However, behind the scenes his volatile relationship with manager Jim McLean culminated in him leaving for Charlton. After unhappy spells there and at Bristol City he made a dream move to Alex Fergusons Man United. Ralph struggled to produce his stunning performances of old and retired a few years later. Many believe he could and should have done so much more but a personal battle with alcohol probably decided otherwise. In the eyes of Dundee United fans he will always be a legend and was inducted into the clubs Hall Of Fame earlier this year. This is his remarkable story.
