A-list A-frames - Dundee FC
In the 1970's and 1980's Dundee and their neighbours Dundee United - separated only by the width of Tannadice Street - sought to differentiate between themselves by installing different systems for suspending the goal nets.
Though United were playing regularly in Europe they stayed with their A-frames, while Dundee, perhaps as a nod to their stellar 1960's European pedigree went all Continental with a pair of D's.
But further back in their History of Goal Nets, when the Dark Blues were themselves regular qualifiers for Europe, the likes of Anderlecht and AC Milan were beaten between a fine set of A-frames.
