Storyline

Despite a mare of a season, loyal fans Wigsy (Warren Brown) and Cliff (Greg McHugh) join the thousands of adoring supporters each Saturday in the terraces to sing and cheer their boys to victory. But today is different. Today is important. Win: they stay up. Lose: they go down. In the dying moments of the match, unbelievable elation as their team score is immediately followed by unbelievable deflation as the Ref (Alistair Petrie) disallows the goal. This, compounded by a moody goal at the other end, sends the losing supporters into a rioting frenzy. Disenfranchised by the impotency of the rioting hooligans to cause any real change, but determined to right this injustice, Wigsy and the more reluctant Cliff inadvertently form their own two-man firm....and kidnap the referee.

Great film - more than your average sports movie
31 May 2016 | by mattleopoldSee all my reviews

This movie is good fun and full of laughs. However, it is much deeper than the standard sports movie. It effectively digs around concepts of fanship. It tests the viewer to consider their passions and beliefs.

Do you know where to draw the line between passion and obsession? How do you know when enough is enough? Do we take games too seriously?

Some really deep ideas that are well explored with great humour and a brilliant plot.

I thought this was a well written, well directed and well acted movie. Good fun and interesting. The shooting style kept attention and pace. It felt distinctly British.
