Up For The Cup!
28 May 2007 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Football mania infects Fenn Street School. Even Smithy is caught up in it. One of the 5C boys - the would-be protest singer Des Ridley - is found to have a natural aptitude for the game.

During Miss Ewell's music class, he calls her an 'old boiler', so she puts him in detention. Without Des on their team, Fenn Street's chances of winning the cup look doomed. Miss Ewell suddenly finds herself socially ostracized...

I have never been interested in football, and this Esmonde and Larbey episode did nothing to change my view. We don't even get to see any actual football, just the prelude and aftermath of the matches.

Joan Sanderson carries most of the episode and, as you'd expect, she is great, even though the material is not really up to par.

Funniest moment - the music class scene. Miss Ewell ropes in Potter to bang a drum, and Mr.Cromwell to play the triangle, and they can't even do those simple jobs properly.
