An Excellent Sporting Feminist Fantasy
tgtround from England
5 November 2006
Cheri Lunghi excels in a custom-written part as the first woman in
Britain to ever become manager (head coach) of a professional soccer
team. The part makes excellent use of Lunghi's own part-Italian
heritage and she gives a classy, 100% committed performance on the
field and off.
The plot covers all aspects of the life of a football club from
corruption, professional sleaze,personal sleaze, cover-ups and more but
there are some excellent moments of humour. Many of these aspects are
still very much with us now.
There are also great supporting performances from Warren Clarke as the
wheeler-dealer chairman of the club and the ever-reliable Tom Georgeson
as the coach denied his shot at big-time management by the arrival of
the unprecedented newcomer.
