AUDERE EST FACERE
25 February 2002 | by (HERTFORD, England) – See all my reviews

What can I say. A film about supporting 'by far the greatest team the world has ever seen', and one of the finest players ever to pull on a lillywhite shirt.

Aside from my bias, it's a little British movie that only GB can make. Touching and funny, it perfectly captures the joy and pain of being a teenager.

Bring back Monday lunchtime FA Cup draws.
