"Football's just a branch of science"
21 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Jossy's Giants was a BBC children's TV programme about a hopeless football team full of quirky Lancashire lads who take on mouthy Geordie Joswell 'Jossy' Blair as their manager. The former footballer has a fondness for betting on the gee-gees that often causes him (and his team) problems, but with the brains of the team's biggest supporter - Tracey Gaunt - and the willingness of the lads to pull together in times of crisis, the Glipton Giants come out on the other side with some success! This was a great programme (written by legendary darts commentator Sid Waddell) full of fun and football and remembered with great affection by a generation of kids who grew up in the 80s. Although the cast was largely made up of kids who hadn't acted before, they still acted the pants off Bryan Robson when he did a cameo! The first series was mostly about the formation of the team and their footballing exploits, while the second series expanded the cast to include girls who took the boys' minds away from match day!
