This film was made at Brentford FC in 1953 when i believe that they were either a Division 2 or Division Three South Club.I went to watch matches at Brentford at the sixties and nothing much had changed of the stadium in the intervening period.The same could be said for the story.This is about the tapping up of a star player by the chairman of another club.Read Barcelona and Ces Fabregas as the modern equivalent and you will know what i mean.Interestingly enough there is a little speech by the stars wife which echoes the Bosman case.She asks the chairman why they don't pay less for transfers so that they can pay more to the player ,which of course now happens on a regular basis.At the end of the film James Hayter talks out loud of other sports he can get into.He comes up with floodlit cricket....on ice.Well almost right.A fascinating film well worth a view.
