When the hooligans arrive in Portsmouth, automatic door locking lights can be seen on the side of the train cars (the blue and white livery is correct though) - automatic train door locks were not introduced until 20 years later. Also, the locomotive pulling the train is sporting WEST COAST RAIL colors which were not around until 2004. See more »

first of all, the original firm is impossible to top, to start with - so why remake it in the first place?
this film is predictable, as is the message, but its also boring! i gave it 3 stars for the music, the cool clothes and that danny dwyer wasn't in this one (probably turned it down though)! nick love should have just tried and make a documentary about firms in the 80s, instead of remaking the same film over and over again. in my opinion, the only reason why he made this film is so that he could keep all the denim in the end. they should have made a film about the German world cup, when lots of frustrated wannabee hooligans started beating up each other when there was just no one to fight with...I'd like to see that!
please no more films about guy-love by nick love! thanks
