Cant' wait!
21 August 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Trailer is enough to do it for any football/soccer fan i think! BUT regardless of football, is a real emotional roller-coaster and you feel like you are part of the film, egging them on. I have been to documentary like films before and not enjoyed them but not the case with this one. Such great entertainment and such a good idea. 1 of those films you can watch again and again and again! NOW forgetting the fact that this is a film, those skills are unbelievable! I mean how do they do it! Id pay to watch them for 90 minutes let alone my beloved arsenal. haha by the way, i hope there is a sequel to this!...a basketball version or something - in the hands of jordan!
