Wonderful
14 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have seen this movie many times and it never fails to impress with its accurate reflection of the times. The actors are all spot-on, especially the younger ones. I was a young girl during this period and can guarantee that this was how it was for us. I watch it these days with a sigh, remembering that in those days, life was so straightforward for us. Danny Blanchflower, Bill Brown, Peter Baker, Ron Henry, Maurice Norman, Dave McKay, Cliff Jones, Bobby Smith, the late John White (tragically struck by lightening whilst playing golf) Terry Dyson and Les Allen - these were legendary names when being a footballer meant a devotion to the sport rather than to one's income. Plus, it's always wonderful to revisit Spurs when they were Giants! (Once a Spur - always a Spur!) This movie for me is a companion piece with Jack Rosenthal's "Ptang Yang Kipperbang" which was also based on young teens of that era. (and was also superb)
