Taking a stroll through the Scottish game past and present, "Fanatical About Football" is a collection of interviews, essays and recollections from famous, and not-so-famous, fans. Football in Scotland has changed irrevocably over the last 50 years with an increased impact from media coverage, the regulations covering stadia, the spiralling cost of players' salaries and even the equipment and clothing used by the players. What has not changed, however, are the memories that have woven the glorious game into the depths of the Scottish psyche. The flavour and atmosphere of life behind the scenes at the clubs, the great deeds by the participants on the park and the vibrant personalities who have enlivened the sport are part of the country's fabric. This book, with contributions from a wide perspective of Scottish society including actors (Dougray Scott and Brian Cox), politicians (Jack McConnell and Gordon Brown) and musicians (The Proclaimers), as well as authors, artists and the man on the terraces, captures the essence of Scottish football. Containing first-hand accounts of significant moments and occasions on and off the field, it looks at the joys, and occasional despairs, of the game which despite the life-changing events during the course of its history has never lost its human element and the power to captivate and inspire in equal measure.
