31 May 2006 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I have a copy of this and it evokes memories of an earlier time when football meant more than just money. It is a tale of four girls passion for one particular football club and their excitement as the season draws to a close at the prospect of doing the double! It is a coming of age tale which reflects the lives of the four girls but one in particular as her family structure starts to disintegrate. Set at the beginning of the sixties it captures perfectly the time period and there is of course the guest appearance by Danny Blanchflower the Spurs legend. If you get the opportunity to see this - take it! It will make you smile.
