Once again the English prove they have no idea what they’re talking about when it comes to football cinema. They dig deep into the ass of their creative reservoirs and pull out the story of Brian Cloughs and Don Revie as the pinnacle of legendary coaching?!!!! I haven’t laughed this hard since the babes of Newcastle were bouncing on my proverbial knee chirping, “Oy daddy, we want to play football like you someday!” Where are the brilliant tales of George Ramsay or Joe Mercer as they lead the Villains to their bellicose victories?! But nooooooooooooo, we want to do a film about Mary Poppins and how good she looked in knee-highs (which granted, she did) but I digress… If there’s ever to be a film about football that will excite, nay unite, the world it MUST BE ABOUT ASTON VILLA!!! For we all agree, it’s just pure fun to watch talent on display when it comes to the boys of Birmingham.
