Not a team, a supporter's club
17 May 2004 | by SimosoSee all my reviews

It was not set around a football team but a supporter's club. You might be thinking of Jossy's Giants some 10 years later. The chap from Stig of the Dump was pretty old and I seem to recall he was really small. The big nosed kid (Wurzel) was in quite a lot at the time and looked like the kid from the Yellow Pages "French Polishers?" advert.

Interesting fact, Ken Hutchinson who played Murphy has a dark secret. He was one of the rapists in Straw Dogs. I, for one, feel no one with such a history should be in charge of children in any capacity.

The tune was banging if I remember "find another place coz you can't play 'ere, always saying NO it s a tragedy"

They were, as with Grange Hill (ludicrously controversial in the early 80's) the only children who didn't swear.
