Synopsis

Football would be nothing without the fans - men and women, girls and boys (perhaps even a few dragooned animals!) whose commitment has often been likened to religious devotion. So Football's Faithful Fans, which is raising vital money for African development projects through the Homeless World Cup, gives Scottish supporters (a number of whom are clergy, with others from rather different backgrounds) a platform to say what fitba' means to them: hopes, dreams, rugged belief and, sometimes, sheer desperation! It's funny, thoughtful and entertaining - a bit like the Beautiful Game itself. Whether you're a fan or not, and whether you follow football in Scotland or elsewhere, here is an enjoyable insight into what might be gently called 'supporter psychology'...
