There are romantic novels, rollercoaster rides and any TV soap opera you care to mention. But nothing puts you through the emotional wringer quite like being a follower of Scotland’s national football team.
Long before the Tartan Army became a thing, fans would flock in their tens of thousands to Hampden, desperate to see their dreams realised.
The biennial crusade to Wembley was another opportunity to reaffirm our perceived standing in world football, a view often tainted by our national drink.
Down through the years, cameras have captured the journey, and many of the best images have been rediscovered for a new book, We Had A Dream, edited by Steve Finan and published by DC Thomson.
Inside this weekend’s Sunday Post, we’ve got a 16-page picture special, giving you a taste of the incredible images we’ve found in the archives.
Plus, Denis Law tells how the pictures bring back memories of the fans, teams and games from his Scotland career.
