You don't have to be a Liverpool fan to enjoy this light-hearted caper, you don't even have to like football, based on the reaction of those around me. Paul Barber is a legend and everything he is involved in seems to turn to gold, I think he is a fine, under-estimated actor.
Although the film is about the Champions league Final in Istanbul in 2005 it is about the fans and the lengths they will go to to follow their team. It is about the passing down of this devotion from one generation to the next, as Tommy (Steve Waddington) and Gerry (Paul Barber) try to connect with their sons. Tommy 's own devotion having come from a strong bond with his granddad. The Liverpool fans are the twelfth man who through all adversity never gave up on their team and on their dreams. This is shown through the shenanigans of the boys and in parallel by footage of the actual fans in the stadium. All the stories, Hitlers Cufflinks, the lucky pants etc etc apparently came from the terraces. This is the fans story. It's British , it's funny , remember The Full Monty, Bend it Like Beckham, Brassed Off, well give it a go.
