    I always thought 1950 was the year FIFA let the home international tournament double as World Cup qualifiers and Scotland went in the huff because they only came second.

    In 54, it is often said, the SFA only took about 13 players with them to Switzerland so that half the Executive Committee could take the missus on a wee holiday.

    Unfortunately, you suspect they’d do the same again if they a) thought they’d get away with it and b) actually got the bloody chance ever again.

    Exceptionally good organistion in 1954, there. Thanks to a World-Cup-obsessive friend (and it’s not even spacky Dotmund), I’ve seen the whole of the 1954 final, and I’d contest that it is the best of all the World Cup Finals.
