Poor
27 September 2015 | by happycarrot68See all my reviews

Everything from the crowd scenes to the plot is wooden. Like many football films you really don't believe that the scenes involve genuine fans but just the extras that they are. Doesn't convince you that this is a match day atmosphere, so poorly adapted for the big screen. Is a stage play and comes across like that. Shame as a decent idea and as a football fan was hoping for a lot more. Rather than humour is a lot of unbelievable daftness that doesn't work. Might work in a theatre but not here.

As football films go this is one of the worst. Not once are you convinced by the casts passion for football or excitement for the game ahead, similar to the screen adaption of Fever Pitch.
