the next game after that was san marino at home in 2000.
since then i've been to all home games except the nigeria game at pittodrie and also the latvia game at hampden.
in total i've been to 15 games in total, 4 of them away games.

Sometimes one game too many, other times not enough, the joy of following Scotland.

as far as i can tell i have been to 26 games - including 5 away, but to be honest i might have missed a few out in that.

best result - 2-0 v France 1989
worst - 0-1 v Costa Rica 1990

My first was v Spain in 1965 (Billy Bremner's debut) a nil-nil draw. My first Scotland v England was 1970 a nil- nil draw (the first for a hundred years)!! Since then there have been many times I've thought "If only we could hing on for a nil-nil draw!!" but we don't. I don't know how many games i've see, it would be great to sit down one day and work it out.

the bad news: we didnae get it. The good news: Austria/Switzerland here we come!

good shout, Scotty.It has nothing to do with rank and every voice counts.Not everyone can afford money or time off work to travel to the away games,though most would, given the chance.People going to their first match sing as loud as the rest of us and are always welcome.
I am proud to see how much the numbers have swelled in the last 5/6 years especially to the far flung places.

1st game: home v Italy (late 60s)
1st away: away v Wales (1977 Anfield)

jist ane mair swallie eh....

Best read to the tune of the New World symphony (Hovis advert)

First game was Scotland V England under 16s at Starks Park in 198hazey.

We cycled five miles to Kirkcaldy, stopped off at the General Store on Links Street for essential supplies (Cola Bottles and Sherbit Dip), cycled up the brae and pad-locked our bikes to a lamp post on Pratt Street. We then sneaked around the back of the ground and climbed over the wall to gain admission Ah, those were the days when stadiums were real and not wee plastic boxes.

Agree with Nev and Scotty CTA's comments, however being a sad anorak i worked out that the Faroes was home game no. 100. Surely makes me a  TA 5 star general!
Looking forward to Lith games as much if not more than many of the others really believe we're turning the corner.

Whatever happended to...... Bertie Vogts?

first home game 1975, first away 1977.

Some saw blokes in the record saying germany was there fiftieth game, well i dont know how many I've been too!

But I know plenty that have been to a lot more than me, for instance Ronnie McD has been to over 100 AWAY games!

1977 - did you go to your first game when you were 50?  Leaving it late were you not?

Colin Looks deceive, When he took over from me in the Neath Ordnance Survey Office in 1985 he was only 23. So he must be at least 40 now

First game was against Brazil in the late eighties and have managed to see some fantastic teams since and some right pile of sh1te as well. Have missed only three home games since the Czech republic game in 1999.

All of this is irrelevant though, as we are all one big happy family, whether you are at your first game or your hundredth game.

My first game was against the CIS/USSR at Ibrox.  Terrible game and absolutely freezing too.  Got hooked on the SFA stats site - suprisingly poor attendances at home games when we were doing well.
Date:  06/02/1991
Tournament:  Friendly
Venue:  Ibrox Stadium, Glasgow
Attendance:  20,763
Half-time Score:   0-0
Full-time Result:   0-1
Manager:   Andy Roxburgh

My first was against San Marino in the 92 qualifiers.

We won 4-0, but due to the fact we'd never been to Hampden before, my mate's mum was driving us and I was sitting wi a map in the back we managed to get lost and miss the first 2 goals!!!

My one and only time on the old 'North Terrace'; I just remember the overwhelming reek o'pish fi the toilets and wondering how the famous ole' QPFC press box didnae fall of the roof of the main stand!!!

Been to so many I ran out of tears years ago!
First game I really remember going to was Scotland v Cyprus in 1969 WCQ when we won 8-0. Don`t know how many games I have been to but never missed an England - Scotland game home or away since 1971.
Been to world cups in 1974 (Germany) 1982 (Spain) 1990 (Italy) - Got my pocket picked in Turin and lost ALL my money. 1998 (France) + Euro 96.
When I start counting up the cost I could be living in a mansion with a Rolls Royce for a `run a round` BUT WOULD I BE HAPPY
