‘This game is mental!’

I missed the Dundee derby last Friday because of work.

Within 24 hours however a rather wonderful video appeared online that, more than any football video I have ever seen, made me feel as if I was there.

Filmed by a young Dunfermline supporter called Ben, it’s worth 15 minutes of your time, even if you don’t like the game.

And to those who query and occasionally mock the 800-mile round trips I make each season to watch a team I have supported since I was ten, here’s your answer.

The match starts around five minutes in but watch from the beginning because there’s a Gregory’s Girl feel about the introduction.

Scottish football, bloody hell.
