  1. I’ve watched the movie three times now… The first half is great, the second half is more emotional, but in general it is a good film; not just a good footie film.

    1. I’m looking forward to seeing it. I read the book and loved it. I realize the film will be completely different. In that way, I’ll get to enjoy The Damned United in two ways — the book and film version, both dark and the other one lighter.

      Cheers,
      The Gaffer

  2. Saw it – great film.

    As an American with limited exposure to the history and culture of the game, it offered me a window into the history of the game and the back-office maneuvering at successful (and not so successful) English clubs.

    And as Rob said, it’s a good film – and not just a good footy film.
