Biography


When Dundee FC won the Scottish League Cup, one of the players to receive a winners’ medals after the 1-0 win over Hampden on December 15th 1973 was substitute Dave Johnston who wore the number twelve shirt that afternoon. Although he never came off the bench Johnston more than played his part in winning the cup having played in ten of the eleven games en route to Hampden, including the semi-final against Kilmarnock.

The dictionary defines the word "Biff" as - "to hit something very hard", and that's exactly how Dundee full-back, Dave Johnston, got his nickname, because he had a tremendously powerful shot on him. Despite the fact he was a defender, he would often go off on overlapping runs down the wing and have a crack at goal and in the 1971/72 season, he thundered in six goals; pretty good going for a left-back. Biff morphed into his nickname, Biffo, which in turn became the chant "Biffo The Bear", after the well known Beano comic star and his ‘personalised’ chant began when a kids pop record by Jackie Lee called "Rupert the Bear" hit the charts in 1971.

Johnston joined Dundee as a youngster in the summer of 1967 and stayed at Dens for over ten years, making 292 appearances and his powerful shooting was first displayed on his debut away at St Mirren on February 1st 1969, which The Dee won 3-2.

In his first couple of seasons Johnston competed for the left-back slot with Doug Houston, Davie Swan and Dave Soutar but by 1971-72, Biffo had made the number three shirt his own making 47 appearances; the second most appearances that season behind Jocky Scott.

Included in that total were six appearances in the UEFA Cup as Dundee lined up against old European foes Cologne and AC Milan. Dundee qualified for the newly named UEFA Cup by finishing fifth the previous season and in the first round drew AB Copenhagen of Denmark. Johnston played in both the 4-2 home win and the 1-0 away win and the 5-2 aggregate victory was rewarded with a tie against 1963 European Cup opponents Cologne.

In the first leg in West Germany Johnston and Dundee were content to soak up the pressure but after the break Cologne took the lead in controversial fashion when Rupp took two touches at a corner before setting up Sheermann to score. Dundee hit back through Alex Kinninmonth on 75 minutes but Lohr got Cologne’s winner seven minutes from time to take a one goal lead to Tayside.

The second leg on November 3rd was one of the most exciting nights ever seen at Dens. Johnston again lined up at number three and just twelve minutes in John Duncan levelled the aggregate scores with a header after Dundee had stormed into attack from the off.

Cologne hit back however and were 2-1 up on the night after the hour, meaning Dundee needed three goals in half an hour to go through and on 69 minutes John Duncan gave the fans some hope with his second.

Now roared on by a vociferous home support Duncan completed his hat-trick with six minutes left and incredibly with just sixty seconds on the clock, Johnston’s full back partner Bobby Wilson crashed home a winner to send The Dee through 5-4 on aggregate.

Dundee’s next opponents were AC Milan; 1963 European Cup semi-final opponents and only Doug Houston and Gianni Rivera remained from the clash eight years previously. In the first leg in the San Siro, Dundee employed a defensive formation – Iain Phillip playing as sweeper behind a back four of Wilson, Stewart, Steele and Johnston and despite the loss of an early goal, the tactic proved sound. However shortly after half-time a misunderstanding between Stewart and Donaldson saw the defender send the ball into an empty net and a third from Benetti gave Dundee an uphill task for the second leg.

Needing goals, Dundee adopted a more attacking formation with Dave Johnston dropping onto the bench with winger Jimmy Wilson coming into the side. A grimly determined Dundee besieged the visitors’ goalmouth from the off and in 38 minutes their persistence was rewarded when Gordon Wallace headed a Duncan Lambie cross past Cudicicni.

Dundee continued their relentless pressure in the second half but were only able to get one more goal from John Duncan. Johnston came off the bench late on, replacing Jimmy Wilson to push Doug Houston forward but the elusive third goal wouldn’t come and the Italian giants went home with a 3-2 aggregate win and a right good fright!

Johnston started the 1973/74 season playing in all six League Cup sectional ties against St Johnstone, Hearts and Partick Thistle in what would turn out to be the start of the successful ‘Road to Hampden’. Dundee qualified top of their section with four wins and two draws and Johnston played in both legs of the second round tie with Dunfermline which the Dark Blues won 5-4 on aggregate after a 3-2 win at Dens and a 2-2 draw in Fife.
