Not enough game footage

I'm a Hull City fan so maybe I'm biased - we 'ate Leeds apparently. But even if this film was about Hull City (we were in the premier league and got to an FA Cup Final, honest) I'd have wanted more footage of the games. Whilst I found this film interesting, it got a bit dull after a while 'cos it was talking head after talking head. The film needed some action. If there were more game highlights it would've been a good watch. And yet it's got great reviews - but disappointing. 5 out of ten
