Jackie didn't get into a fight last night because he was drunk, or arrogant, or just being Jackie. He got into a fight because he was defending me, and you, and anyone else who loves this game, and believes that it should heal rifts, not cement them.

To start with, is hard to know if you should blame Duvall's lame Scottish accent om himself or the casting. Brad Pitt's performance on Snatch makes this a little bit harder on Mr. Duvall.
Second, a soccer fan feels appalled watching this production. It is transparent that whoever wrote and directed this did not bother to actually understand the sport. I am not saying someone should go to med school in order to act in E.R., but a minimal understanding of the subject is expected.
Last, but not least, the sound mixing. The dinner with the manager and his wife is just impossible to stand. It seems the microphone is inside his mouth.
Summarizing, a good story in the wrong hands and a terrible choice for Robert Duvall.
