those glory glory days
20 March 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this on Channel 4 when i was young.I really loved it and I watched it so many times that i knew it word for word and even started to eat brown sauce with every meal.unfortunately the video tape wore out years ago.As a Tottenham supporter I may be a little biased but I think that this is a wonderful film reflecting on the days when football was at it greatest,and watching it through the eyes of a young girl gave an insight to how life really was like in the 1960s.I would certainly recommend to anyone that they watch this film regardless of which team they support.I am trying to find a copy of this film and I look forward to watching it again with my own children.
