9780946487455: Over the Top with the Tartan Army

This book is a must for any soccer fan who likes a good laugh, because if you love Scottish soccer you've got to have a sense of humor. Grown men bedecked in tartan, yomping across most of the globe, hell-bent on benevolence and ritualistic drunkenness all in the name of soccer. Taking us on an erratic world tour, McArthur gives a frighteningly funny insider's eye view of active service with the Tartan Army. Over the Top is a labor of love -- a bit like supporting Scotland.
