I thought that they didn't show home games live at that time. Might be wrong though?

Thinking back the coverage was a bit random from that campaign. IIRC...

Norway away - live on TV

Yugoslavia home - not live

Cyprus away - live on TV

France home - live on TV

Cyprus home - not live

Yugoslavia away - live on TV

France away - not live

Norway home - live on TV

I think the SFA used to offer games to the tv once the tickets had sold out. Would explain why the live home games had over 60k crowds.

I don’t remember it being on tv, I could have swore it was on the radio but if I’m wrong then so be it.     

ps.  sorry for not getting into an argument about it as is the norm on here 😂

Aye, that would make sense.

Now I think about it, I went to most of the home games, so I probably wouldn't have noticed if they were on TV or not anyway.

North Terracing for me as well that night. It was that wet my programme disintegrated in my inside pocket.

Now that I do remember!   Only surpassed by the Liechtenstein home win (frustration, embarrassed cold sweat, then comedy-relief emoticon inserted here).

...I link the two out of heartfelt sympathy for the opposition.   So come to think of it, I do like yer OP better :bouncy:

That Lichtenstein game is the only Scotland game I've left early when the result was in the balance. Was scunnered with Avril, would have sacked him there and then and saved us misery.
