The Swiftboys may be called All Stars in the title, this nowhere, North Holland amateur soccer team consists of boys who since childhood enjoy the game itself -only gay captain Bram, a lawyer, takes the trouble to spend time on official club business- less then the camaraderie as none has the making of anything resembling a star player, to put it kindly, so they usually end their season by demotion. The point is having fun on the field, in the locker-room, in the canteen, and whenever something happens in one's life one or more of the others are likely to get involved, which also goes for some players' female partners, while male bonding seems only to stimulate their flirtatious lust. The chairman is a cigar-smoking fat rat, who intends to exploit the various teams using his infrastructure, and comes to employ as barmaid ex-con Nadja, a red-hair harpy nevertheless considered sexy by most straight boys.

The series is a spin-off of the two year earlier movie All Stars, with the same cast and characters. A very similar story, also in Dutch about a talentless amateur soccer team, independently made in Belgium, catering for Flemish idiosyncrasies, also started as a motion Team Spirit, then got a spin-off series "Team spirit - de serie", a second movie "Team Spirit 2" and second season of the series, but slightly renamed "Team spirit - de serie II".

I know. All Stars was not the best movie ever made. But it was fun. Well made and effective. This TV-series that came out later, does not have the same feeling about it. The direction is just a bit less tight. The acting a bit sloppier. The scripts not as inspired. A shame. I'm sure they could have made a sequel for the movie theatres that would have been much better. Now they just made mediocre television.
