Scotland in the 70s: The Definitive Account of the Scotland Football Team 1970-1979 [9781785314391]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
The 1970s saw a change in the fortunes of the Scottish national side. After a gap of 16 years World Cup qualification was achieved for the finals in West Germany in 1974. Credited as the only undefeated side at the tournament, the sobering trip to Argentina four years later prompted more realistic future expectations. In a decade in which the SFA celebrated its centenary, the scandal of the Copenhagen Five and a breakdown in relations between the press and players were significant events - while, on the park, players of the calibre of Dalglish, Hartford, Jordan, Souness and McQueen replaced the old guard. Scotland in the 70s looks beyond the decade's 89 matches, examining the role of the managers - Brown, Docherty, Ormond, MacLeod, Stein - and the circumstances surrounding the many memorable games. Extensive newspaper and video archive research is complemented by the memories of star contributors including Bobby Brown, Archie MacPherson, Asa Hartford, Eddie Gray, Willie Morgan, Willie Johnston, Lou Macari, Bobby Clark, Jimmy Bone and John Blackley.
AUTHOR: Ronnie McDevitt is the author of Scotland in the 60s; More Than Argentina, the biography of Ally MacLeod; We'll Support You Evermore, based on his travels with the Scottish team; and Except for Viewers in Scotland, which documents the history of Scottish football on TV. Ronnie has attended four World Cups and two European Championship tournaments with the national side. A native of Fife, he currently works at the Scottish Football Museum.
