Scotland v East Germany 1982 Euro Qualifier. We won 2-0. I was 8 and my dad took me and my brothers.Remember being in the old main stand with wooden seats.



Luxury compared to the terracing.



Absolutely :lol:


I can remember auld guys there with plaids across their laps to keep warm and sharing their whisky in wee nip glasses.   My dad took me there at first as there was less swearing.   No family area in those days (early 70's).

I'm not 100% sure now, but reckon '69 and/or 71 games vs Northern Ireland. My dad would have been hoping to see Denis Law and George Best, so picked those of the home internationals.   I'm thinking the earlier one 'cause Colin Stein scored ...or maybe I'm just befuddled in my decrepitude.   Scores were 1-1 & 0-1 so wasn't captivated :(


He never took me to a full international vs England before even the need for "political correctness", but just away from general not-niceness :mellow: .  When I was able and old enough, I did go to one myself, but was not best pleased by said atmosphere and did not go to another one until Celtic Park last.   For different reasons I didn't enjoy that one either :-))


Instead, I'm pretty sure I went to two of these at some time in the 70's with him, but confess I don't remember much...
