    That programme on BBC iplayer is well worth a watch; the stories of the fans who made the journey, that state of the hotel as well as some classic footage.. I was firmly behind the Scots as a football crazed 9 year old, whose passions had been firmly set alight by the Albion in the previous 4 years. I had never watched a world cup before and with never having known a world cup with England playing in it in my lifetime to that point, I was definitely "on the march wi' Ally's Army!". Even more excitingly, the Albion were linked I think with one or two of the Peruvian's who beat Scotland - Oblitas?? Was Cubilas one as well?
    Good documentary. Watched it at the weekend. They really did think they could win the World Cup!

      Its interesting when you look at the 1966 videos with the union jacks waving, and I remember the whole country being behind the Scots as well in 1978

      Its a pity we now have this sort of Palace rivalry and a lot of people wanting to break up the union today.
      I remember starting off wanting to see the Scots do well but soon succumbed to the comedic quality of their abject failure; a pattern that I have repeated since. I watched the Iran game in a boarding house on Montpelier Crescent with a Glaswegian and Iranian; great scenes.

      Eh? Are you talking about the West Germany game in 1970? We went 2-0 UP!
      Whoops, yes 2-0 up then Germany got one back before Charlton was subbed.

      We've seen this movie all too often, it's playing on a perpetual loop. Wen it comes to World Cups, as Renton once said, it's shite being Scottish

      Yeah I thought that was a telling point. When asked who took the free-kicks for the opposition, in an interview before the game, the keeper said he didn't know. He then let in two from free-kicks.

      Scotland

      Scotland did have a run of very poor keepers at that time

      I don't think it was just the keeper, but the whole squad mentality. Fancy not checking out the opposition at all

      This was the seventies. Checking out the opposition in the formalised, er, form as we know it nowadays, didn't exist. There were no managers with plump folders of information, nor players bright enough to at least pretend to make use of that information, even if it were to be somehow made available.How do you check out, say, Iran, or Peru in 1978? Doubt many football associations could find them on a map.
