Very interesting show
27 March 2020 | by terry-securitySee all my reviews

If you love football and drama then this ones for you. I'm a huge football fan, this show gives a great insight of what they went through and what it meant to play football Back in the day. The story is based around the start of the fa cup my only criticism is I'm unsure as to how much of this is based on actual fact and fond myself asking more questions. If facts doesn't worry you sit back and enjoy the show.
