Title: Football Things on TV
Post by: Keefaz on Tuesday 1 June 2010, 01:25:40 PM
Thought it'd be nice if we had a thread for football programmes, especially now it's WC time and there are lots of interesting things about.

I noticed tonight (1 June) there are:

BBC3, 20:00 - The World Cup's Most Shocking Moments
Richard Bacon and guest presenter Peter Crouch look back on the 50 greatest shocks in the history of the World Cup, covering the last six tournaments and including moments such as Maradona's `Hand of God', Zinedine's Zidane's headbutt and England's penalty pain. Featuring accounts from people who were there.

More4, 22:00 - The Power of the Game
As well as following the qualification campaigns of South Africa, Iran and the USA for the 2006 World Cup, Michael Apted looks at the difficulties Iranian women supporters face in watching football matches live, how apartheid still affects the sport in South Africa and how the Americans are trying to overcome apathy to football, or soccer as they know it, at home.

I'd seen the More4 piece before.

In all honesty it left me with a real dislike for Landon Donovan, I appreciate he may have since changed but he came across as incredibly lazy and arrogant. He openly claims was happy to play in MLS over Germany, which is fine, but the fact he so openly claimed he would have made it, and been a success. It was almost like he just didn't want to put the work in, which is sad, he seems to have enjoyed his time at Everton, and I can see him trying to get back to Europe post World Cup.

Alan Shearer to play match for Soccer Aid

Jun 2 2010 by Dan Warburton, Evening Chronicle

TOON legend Alan Shearer will roll back the years when he pulls on the famous Three Lions jersey once again.

The retired star will line-up alongside some of the world’s greatest players when he takes to the field at Manchester’s Old Trafford for the charity football clash, Soccer Aid.

The record goal-scoring 39-year-old is hoping to emulate his performance at Wembley two years ago when he bagged a hat-trick in the Unicef game.

Shearer said: “I still play a couple of times a week with mates. And there’s no greater incentive than scoring goals at Old Trafford.

“I always enjoyed playing there for Newcastle United. You rarely came away from there with any points, but I'm hoping we’ll get the right result for the match.

“I’m hopeful of scoring a couple of goals and giving Fabio Capello something to think about.”

England will take on the Rest Of The World, which will feature a mix of professional and ex-professional footballers and celebrities.

It is hoped the game can repeat Soccer Aid's fundraising feats of 2006 and 2008 by raising well over £1m from gate receipts and viewer donations.

Raising money is his main focus, but Shearer admits something else has got him really excited – French giant Zinedine Zidane.

Zidane joins the likes of Manchester United’s Ryan Giggs, Luis Figo and Henrik Larsson in the Rest Of The World team.

Shearer said: “The player I’m most looking forward to playing against is, without a doubt, Zinedine Zidane.

“He was one of the best players I ever played against for England so it will be magic to see him in action again.”

Asked if he would volunteer to take a penalty, he said: “Daft question – too right I will. You should never have to ask strikers if they want a free shot at goal.”

The game will be streamed live across the globe as some of the world’s greatest pull on their boots.

In the last two Soccer Aid outings, more than £4m was pledged from viewers watching the broadcast on ITV.

Alan said: “Unicef is an incredibly important charity. The work they do around the world protecting the rights of children can never be underestimated. It’s a truly worthwhile cause.”

Henrik Larsson is also taking part in the game, alongside cricketer Brian Lara, chef Gordon Ramsay, pop singer Ronan Keating, and ex-Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann.

Harry Redknapp will be managing the England team, with comedian James Corden as assistant manager.

Coached by Bryan Robson, the line-up also includes pop-star Robbie Williams, who has co-ordinated the event with Unicef.

The game comes just days before England kick off their World Cup campaign in South Africa, and Shearer today claimed the team had every chance of lifting the trophy.

He said: “I think we are realistically one of three or four that could go on to win it including Brazil, Spain, Germany and Argentina. We've got a chance but we’ll need Rooney fit and at his best and we’ll need a bit of luck.”

You can see Soccer Aid live from Old Trafford on ITV1 this Sunday from 6pm.

"This movie is a total disgrace the research must have been zero as it is full of terrible mistakes and is clearly filmed in the USA by someone who does not even know what Scotland looks like

As a scot it made me extremely angry as to how we were portrayed in this bargain bin rubbish

The accents are terrible, They didn't even bother to put UK number plates on the cars in the film whilst I accept the film is a light hearted kids movie, they should realise we are not all kilt wearing long haired Mel Gibson look a likes Time for the director and producers of this junk to spend a little time on research."

SUNDAY 6 JUNE

12.00-12.30, ESPN: FIFA World Cup Official Film 1978

18.00-22.00, ITV1: Soccer Aid
There's no other football match like it. Where else would Zinedine Zidane pick up a lovely through ball from Mike Myers? Where else could you see Ricky Hatton elbow Gordon Ramsay off a cross or Alan Shearer embarrassed by some neat footwork from Simon Baker, star of The Mentalist? These names and dozens more join forces for an England v Rest of the World match in aid of Unicef.

21.00-22.00, BBC3: Wags, Kids and World Cup Dreams
Five WAGs experience the reality of life behind the World Cup gloss by working in some of the poorest, most deprived neighbourhoods in South Africa. The WAGs fly to White River, a poor rural district with one of the highest rates of HIV infection anywhere in South Africa, where their job is to work as foster mothers to children orphaned by AIDS. But for one of them the desperately poor conditions proves too difficult to deal with.

22.00-23.00, ITV1: Piers f***ing Morgan's f***ing World Cup South Africa Tosspotathon
In the build-up to Africa's first ever football World Cup, colossal t*** Piers Morgan journeys to South Africa and finds a country with a passion for football even greater than his own massive f***ing ego, the prick. He also discovers how the country has progressed since the end of apartheid twenty years ago.

22.00-23.00, ITV4: Soccer Aid Extra Time

20.30-21.00, BBC3: The WAGs' Stories
4/5 - Amii

Five WAGs experience the reality of life behind the World Cup gloss by working in some of the poorest and most deprived neighbourhoods in South Africa. Amii Grove relives her experiences, beginning in Khayelitsha, a crime-ridden township in Cape Town, where she gives comfort to a 13-year-old girl who is ill after having been raped. But on the last leg of the trip where she is expected to work as a foster mum to 13 children orphaned by AIDS, Amii finds the experience more than she can cope with.

23.20-23.50, BBC1: Inside Sport
Gabby Logan looks at the tumultuous modern history of South Africa over the last fifty years, and explains how sport and the international boycott played a crucial role in the politics of South Africa, from apartheid to the release of Mandela to the 2010 World Cup. Famous South African sportsmen such as Gary Player, Chester Williams and Steven Pienaar tell of their experiences in apartheid South Africa, and John Emburey explains why he broke the international boycott to compete in South Africa.

Matt Smith looks back at the World Cup's greatest ever moments, including England's victorious 1966 final against West Germany and Brazil's brilliant win over Italy in 1970. Journalists and pundits including Clive Tyldesley, Robbie Earle and David Pleat give their views.


10:00pm - 11:30pm, More4: True Stories: Albino United
Teams on away games often face a hostile home crowd, but none so blood-chilling as those braved by Albino United, Tanzanian footballers who all have the condition that affects skin pigmentation. In recent years, many albinos have been killed or maimed so that their body parts can be used by witchdoctors in potions and remedies. As World Cup fever sweeps Africa, Albino United head out from Dar es Salaam to tour dangerous territories around Tanzania. They hope to convince the crowds that attitudes towards albinism must change. "We have decided to show people we are humans," says one player. "We are not here to be sacrificed." This rough and ready film shows glimmers of heart in the darkness.


10:35pm - 11:05pm, BBC1: Panorama: Man United - into the Red
Red is the colour of Manchester United - but now it's as famous as the colour of the club's balance sheet. Thousands of its fans wear green and gold - a protest against American owners the Glazer family who, they say, have saddled the club with a growing mountain of debt. On the eve of the World Cup - and ahead of a possible bid for the club - John Sweeney explores the battle for the soul of United, the true scale of its debts and its ramifications for our national game.

Celebrating South Africa as it becomes the first nation in Africa to host the FIFA World Cup. Featuring South Africa's stunning landscapes, architecturally unique stadiums and stark social environmental contrasts. Six personal stories provide a window on to the world of six very different South African children.

8:00pm - 9:00pm, Channel 4: Come Dine with Me WAGS Special
You thought Come Dine with Me was as rancorously daft as TV could get, but no: they've cranked it up further with a gang of footballers' wives and girlfriends and the result is horribly, cruelly funny. It's just too easy to mock Wags when they're as ditzy as this lot. "I could talk about shoes all day," coos Chantelle Tagoe (Emile Heskey's other half) as she fondles a pair of heels that may have cost £1,200 or £1,800, she can't quite remember. Meanwhile, Jude Cisse passes off cucumber as papaya and movingly describes the romantic day when Djibril proposed marriage to her by text message. Aah. It's worth watching for the interiors alone - the sofas with rows of cushions four-deep, the floor-to-ceiling shelves for your handbags and the gilt throne for the hostess to sit on (the Cisses have something of a gilt complex). The strangest thing is that you may decide by the end that for all their clueless decadence, in at least three of four cases, these really aren't bad people.

7:55pm - 9:00pm, ITV4: How To Win The World Cup
Repeat of the absolute load of balls from the other day.


9:30pm - 10:30pm, BBC2: World Cup Kick Off Concert
Ridiculous opening ceremony thing with local acts like Freshlyground, the Parlotones and Vusi Mahlasela. More recognisable will be the international visitors to Orlando Stadium, including Black-Eyed Peas, Alicia Keys and Shakira. Somali-born singer K'naan will perform his song Wavin' Flag, which is the anthem for the whole tournament. Apparently.


9:00pm - 10:00pm, C4: Come Dine with Me: Footballers Special
After the creme brulee of last night's Wags edition, this is more like suet pudding. But it's worth watching for the less than stellar assortment of former England footballers - Neil "Razor" Ruddock, John Fashanu, Frank Worthington and Carlton Palmer - who take part. The results are as painful as you'd expect: lowlights include Ruddock answering the door dressed only in an apron and Worthington's back-to- basics attempt at vinaigrette. It's not for the faint-hearted.


9:00pm - 10:30pm, BBC4: Hero: The Bobby Moore Story
Documentary telling the story of Bobby Moore, who has passed into football legend as the captain who led England to its only World Cup victory in 1966. Together with highlights from his career, he is remembered here by his family, friends and fellow footballers. The skills and determination of the East End boy who went on to lift the World Cup are recalled by a host of greats including Pele, George Best, Jimmy Greaves, Denis Law, Bobby and Jack Charlton, Alan Ball, Geoff Hurst and David Beckham.

10:35pm - 12:20am, ITV1: Sixty Six
It's 1966 and England is hosting the World Cup finals. It's also the year that 12-year-old Bernie celebrates his bar mitzvah. But guess what? The final match and Bernie's big celebration both fall on the same day. And, as England's hopes of taking the trophy rise, so the scale of Bernie's bar mitzvah falls. Suddenly, even close family concoct reasons to be stuck in front of the TV on the day that Bernie has looked foward to for years, and has planned down to the smallest detail. But at least the growing soccer mania leads to an improvement in Bernie's relationship with his rather distant father. Gregg Sulkin makes a likeable lead as Bernie and Eddie Marsan gives a solid performance as his dad, but the real revelation in this engaging coming-of-age comedy is Helena Bonham Carter, who's nicely cast as an ordinary wife and mother.

That Sixty Six sounds appalling.

Quote from: Rotten Tomatoes
64%
Consensus: Likable but overly sentimental, Sixty Six has snatches of sharp dialogue but is ultimately too predicable.

Quote from: Guardian
** . . .
Despite the whimsical voice-over and gloopy, sentimental tone, it's a hard film to dislike and boasts a wonderfully lugubrious performance from Eddie Marsan as the round-shouldered schlub of a dad.

Roger Ebert has a good review here: http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080826/REVIEWS/808289986/1023.

There's a Zidane thing tonight on BBC2 has it been on before and if so was it good?

It's meant to be canny:

Zidane: a 21st Century Portrait

12:50am - 2:20am
BBC2

Following the lead of Hellmuth Costard's 1971 study of George Best, Football like Never Before, this audacious documentary tracks Zinédine Zidane for the duration of a La Liga game between Real Madrid and Villareal in April 2005. Technically, the film draws attention to itself far too often, with its tricksy shifts between camera angles (courtesy of Se7en cinematographer Darius Khondji) and distances. But, as a study in sporting concentration and an avant-garde experiment in spatial disorientation, it's as compelling as it is impressive. Particularly striking is the unswerving intensity that seems to isolate Zidane from his team-mates, as he rarely calls for the ball or issues instructions throughout the match. Indeed, he remains emotionless - apart from a grin at Roberto Carlos just before joining the goalmouth mêlée that results in him being sent off. Revealing the flaws as well as the genius, this is clearly a portrait of an artist at work.

Decent documentary aired on ESPN a couple nights back here in the US called  The Two Escobars  (http://30for30.espn.com/film/the-two-escobars.html) about football in Colombia in the 90s, the drug cartels, and the killing of Andrés Escobar.

Really recommend catching it if you can if only to see the interviews with Asprilla, Valderrama, Higuita. What a terrific group of players they had.

I hadn't realized that the players had received death threats right from the beginning of the tournament. Something about the players being killed if the wrong player started the opening match versus Romania.  A lot of drug money was being laundered through the Colombian league clubs and cartels were competing to ensure that their players-- the one's contracted to one club or another--- and not those of their competitors started and were put in the shop window---it wasall about increasing their sale value.

Pretty sure that Brian Glanville still maintains that the Colombians threw the match against the USA.

I'm watching that Gazza tears thing now. Just makes me even angrier at the shower of s*** that we got this time round.
hong on, this present shower of s*** is very similar. the difference being that we came up against a decent team earlier than the semis this time. in 90 we were s*** in the group,were lucky to beat cameroon and very lucky to beat belgium but all people care to remember was us being unlucky to lose to west germany.

It's not really as much to do with the performances as it is the character of the players. At least that team seemed to give a s***. Poor performances or not.

Of course, why enjoy a moment of decent TV about Bobby et al when you could be needlessly stirring s*** on the internet.
i thought the refernces of tears were to do with gazza. anyhoo sir bob or not, it's not healthy to misrepresent the past out of niceness,

While looking for repeats of the Gazza program, I've noticed that tonight at 11:15 is a program called "World Cup Rock 'n' Goal Years" on ITV. Think its just a look back on different World Cups. This ones about 1986, then right after there's one on 2006.

Well said madras.

I loved Italia 90 but England were quite lucky to get to the semis and went out to the first quality team they went up against.

The mists have time have completely over exaggerated Englands performance that World Cup.

We drew with a class Germany and went out on pens, we didnt get dry piped 4-1 off the German youth team like the current shower of s***

Sir Matt Busby's family incensed over TV portrayal of iconic Manchester United manager

The family of iconic Manchester United manager Sir Matt Busby have criticised a new BBC film depicting the story of the 1958 Munich air disaster in which eight of the Busby Babes were killed.

The feature-length drama, titled United, stars Dougray Scott as Sir Matt and former Doctor Who David Tennant as his assistant Jimmy Murphy, and is, according to Busby's family, riddled with inaccuracies.

The 90-minute film, which will be shown on BBC Two on Sunday, centres around Manchester United first-team coach Murphy and how he rebuilt the team while Sir Matt recuperated from his injuries, and also how 20-year-old Bobby Charlton coped with his grief following the accident.

But the dramatisation has angered Sir Matt's relatives, from the clothes he wears to the way his character is portrayed.
"The film-makers have put my dad in an overcoat and a trilby hat," Sir Matt's son Sandy told the Mirror. "He looks more like a gangster than a football manager.

"In the film he never appears in a tracksuit, which is ridiculous, given he was the first 'tracksuit' manager of his generation.
"And the way he’s played, with head constantly to one side, is all wrong. My father was a proud man, proud of his fitness and of the way he carried himself.

"They’ve also got his character all wrong. In one scene, my dad is talking to Alan Hardaker [former Football League secretary] and speaks to him in a manner and in a tone my father would never have used.

"I wasn’t consulted about this film and, after seeing it, I’m glad I had nothing to do with it.

"The film-makers said they would protect the feelings of those relatives affected by the Munich disaster. But I was very upset watching the scene involving the third [and fatal] take-off of the aeroplane and had to leave the room."

Harry Gregg, the former United goalkeeper, who pulled Sir Matt and several team-mates - including Charlton - out of the wreckage, was also critical.

"Sir Matt had an aura about him and everyone respected him. But he certainly didn’t walk about in a trilby and a camel hair coat, as he does in the film.

"The film portrays us as a pub team. To me that is a terrible insult to the great footballers of that generation, the likes of Roger Byrne and Tommy Taylor.

"If that’s the way the United team of that time is portrayed, what does it say about other great players of that era, like Billy Wright, Dave MacKay or Danny and Jackie Blanchflower?

"The film gives a totally false picture of football at that time, which is what angered me the most. In the film, Mark Jones [United defender who died in Munich] is smoking a pipe in the tunnel before a game. I know there’s poetic licence, but that’s ridiculous."
Sandy added: "My dad appointed a loyal staff including Joe [Armstrong], who was chief scout and responsible for discovering many of the Busby Babes. But there is no mention of him in the film."

United secretary Walter Crickmer and coach Bert Whalley are also barely mentioned, while the eight journalists who were killed in the tragedy are omitted from the film.

United's director James Strong, said: "We’ve made every endeavour to be as accurate and truthful as possible in spirit and intention.
"We want this to be a fitting and appropriate memory of these amazing players, this amazing team and this amazing story that a lot of people are aware of."

The portrayal of Sir Matt was a strange one. They got the voice right, but the character in the drama seemed to have almost a sinister air about him.

They also seemed to want to blame the disaster on Alan Hardaker and the Football League's insistence on the team getting back for the Saturday fixture. There may be some complaints about that. My understanding was that the decision to go for the third, disastrous attempt at taking off was Busby's. He was probably concerned that a postponement would lead to the players being very late and tired for the game on the Saturday.

Yes.  BUT, whilst Whelan does it for the love of the club Ashley does it to protect his investment.
Title: Re: Football Things on TV
Post by: Sifu on Sunday 8 May 2011, 10:08:01 PM
Personally, I thought that was a bit interesting. Sugar does bring up a lot of good points but then again it's stuff that has been discussed before.
Title: Re: Football Things on TV
Post by: Cronky on Sunday 8 May 2011, 11:04:33 PM
In the end, I wasn't sure how well Sugar really understood the problem. He portrayed himself as a life-long Spurs supporter who got involved as the owner out of some community spirit, but I can recall at the time him saying that he saw Spurs as a useful addition to his business portfolio in the media / entertainment business. I'm not sure that he really identifies with the bond that supporters have with their club and which gives the game its particular character.

A club is not just a business, it's also a community institution. That produces pressure on owners to take risks with their spending, but it's also the reason why there's so much pressure and desire to keep clubs going even when they go under financially. Sugar's idea that fans could do with learning a lesson by seeing a 'disaster' was a bit naive.

Basically, the game can't be regulated entirely on a business / market model, where an enterprise that's financially unviable simply disappears. It needs to be regulated from outside, by the authorities that govern the game. That process has only just started, with the financial fair-play rules, but hopefully it's the start of a continuing trend.
Title: Re: Football Things on TV
Post by: Interpolic on Sunday 8 May 2011, 11:16:46 PM
I wonder with the financial fair play rules whether we'll see examples of teams openly flouting the rules.

For example, Man City saying "you can keep your Europa League / Champions League, we'll keep spending until we win the league then we'll look at sorting ourselves out".  As has been mentioned before though, it's massively open to rule-bending, e.g. what's to stop one of Abramovic's mates from buying a corporate box or sponsoring the academy for something daft like £5-10m a season.  Time will tell, although I fully support the logic.

Good, if only to see Messi's best clips as a pro and some nice clips from his as a youngster. Pointless in hearing a bunch of non-committal pundits saying 'he's one of the best ever, you have to put him next to Maradona and Pele, they're in the same group, but the best? We'll have to see'

He's quite obviously the best in terms of talent and consistency

Was the Messi documentary thing any good? I pretty much avoided it - I'm of the opinion that the majority of ITV's football documentaries are pretty crap.
It was OK, if you've read about Messi then you pretty much knew everything it told you anyway. There was some interesting archive footage though, pretty much from him being just old enough to run right up until his professional debut. Worth a watch if you've nothing else to do.

Just finished watching the the QPR thing today. Great stuff. Those italians were nigh on impossible to work with. No wonder they got through so many bosses. Actually felt quite emotional watching them celebrate the FA verdict, even though it wasn't my club. As a football fan, i think you can appreciate what fellow fans go through at times. That must have been an agonising wait, not being able to fully appreciate winning the league. The only reasons i'd want QPR to go back down are Mark Hughes and their overpriced ticket prices.

Yeah just watched it as well, those Italian (especially Briatore) are that fan you are glad doesn't run your club. Every game it's 'he's s***, get rid' 'this manager is an idiot' 'sack that coach' 'all we ask is that you win every game' :lol:

Aye, have to agree with that. Can't see too many of those Ultras going to Italy vs Ireland or whatever.

Yeah.

Seems it was more a denouncement of the country's culture, in which it seems this sort of thing has been deemed acceptable by certain groups in society. I'd question the practical relevance to actual Euro 2012 matches. Not that the behaviour is anything but disgusting, of course.

It's obviously wrong and not something they should have to consider but you have to be questioning who thought it'd be a good idea for them to go a football match there.

Didn't watch it but I'm guessing nothing new was covered, football fans are c***s for the most part?

Football is God. Sunday at 10PM on ESPN Classic if you have got it.

Quote
From Danish filmmaker Ole Bendtzen, Football is God explores the close relation between faith and football – and the lives three people lead… in the name of the Father, the Son and Diego Maradona.  The film follows three fans of Argentina’s Boca Juniors club – Hernán, Pablo and La Tía.  Hernán is an intellectual, intoxicated by a love for Boca he cannot shake off. He finds himself torn between reason and his emotional needs – a struggle that threatens to destroy him. Pablo is a working class man who believes legendary former Boca player Diego Maradona is a God – and has a burning desire to meet him. La Tía is an elderly eccentric. She considers the Boca players her sons. The film follows La Tía in her pursuit of delivering a birthday present – a pair of boxer shorts – to her favourite player, Martín Palermo.

Just watching the 1970 one currently. Makes you appreciate just how good some players were. Brazil's attacking force, man. Pele, Jairzinho, Tostao, Rivelino.... totally unnecessary. :lol:

The England squad of 70 was better than the 66 one....had it not been for Banks being nobbled along with Ramsey not quite ever grasping substitutions, we'd have given Brazil a close game in the Final. Seen a film of this before and it's a great tournament.

Is there a real conspiracy theory about this? As a wee bairn I loved the 1970 tournament like, sneaking into the living room while me parents snored to watch matches at midnight with the sound off, brilliant. We should've kept Bobby Charlton on, like. As you say, we had a better squad than in 1966.

It was a genuine attempt at the ball and Berthold's reaction certainly got Gazza booked, agreed. Enjoyed the 90 World Cup merely because of the England progress but overall,  entertainment wise it wasn't a good one.

Yeah, it's really underwhelming compared to something like Deal or No Deal which is a horrific show with a large payout.

The worst is Perfection, where the prize pot plays a huge role in the game itself meaning that the poor c*** who enters after a winner stands no chance. He'll have like a grand, half of which he'll have to try and persuade one of the other contestants down with to change his answers, something they'll never do because you don't enter gameshows to win £500.

People should be free to be what they are. I spent most of the show wondering how his inclination wasn't immediately obvious though, I mean, if I was in a shower room full of naked athletic soaped-up young ladies I think it'd be enormously apparent, hugely so. Massively, I need to make that quite clear :lol: So everyone must have known, right?

Dammit, man. I can't sit at work without thinking "You know, I totally would" when some lovely lass strolls past, and then have to stay seated for minutes until things subside. And then plotting how this could really happen. :lol: Like f***. Nee wonder I get nowt done. Divven't tell wor lass.

They're a dying breed because w*****s like Pulis, Allardyce and Pardew are more bothered about players working back. It's all about scraping enough points to stay up. 40 points then ease off, place on the gravy train secured.

Again, too much money in the game means that pure flair players aren't worth the effort. Just look at Ben Arfa.

That's really f***ing annoyed me from Le Tissier, considering he's now one of the 'he could play for a big club' tossers on Soccer Saturday that wants to funnel all the promising players to the same top two or three clubs the minute they play well for a couple of months.

Can only remember him being seriously linked with Chelsea once, maybe Spurs as well.  Eventually became apparent he just didn't want to move.

Fantastic player to watch like, was glad to see some (not all) of his goals again.

We did, then he decided he was happy being very good as opposed to world class.

He had extraordinary natural ability but clearly hasn't put the effort in to reach that potential.

Ferguson also coached most of the excitement out of him.

Hearing Hugh Johns commentate on the 66 final brings back memories of Sunday afternoons as a kid when he commentated in the Central area on Star Soccer for years. Different areas had different commentators. London had Brian Moore, East Anglia had Gerry Harrison, North West had Gerald Sinstadt, Yorkshire had Martin Tyler, Roger Tames did the North East after Kenneth Wolstenholme. Can't remember the South Coast one, might have been David Bobin.

You'd get highlights of the game in your area followed by briefer highlights from around the country. It wasn't as good as Match of the Day but it was good Sunday afternoon fayre. Indeed when commercial television won the Saturday night contract in the early 80s, there was a public outcry and Match of the Day came back after a couple of years away.

That takes me back. We had 'Shoot' covering the North East with a main game on a Sunday. Even Hartlepool and Darlington were chosen sometimes. When i think of the toon on Shoot i'm getting images of Peter Withe in a Bukta shirt in front of a half built leazes end. Feeling very nostalgic now.

Always goosebumps with Three Lions.
Three Lions is such a class song

I loved it, hairs on the back of the neck and that. Everyone else hated it at the time. :mick:

Srsly they first played it on Fantasy Football and I taped it (VCR, f*** off you young uns) and played it half a dozen times off the belt. It's the hope that gets you.

Title: Re: Football Things on TV
Post by: M4 on Wednesday 1 June 2016, 11:58:57 PM
Is the Euro 96 one the most glorious defeat in England's history? Typething? I mean, obviously we lost and it shattered the last best hope - but it gets worn as a badge of honor in many ways. Not saying it's a bad thing.

All said and done, the team didn't perform that brilliantly at the tournament. Draw in the first game, in danger against Scotland when the penalty was given, labouring past Spain then playing well against Germany but ultimately losing.

However the set up was glorious. The tournament was in England of course, the footballing landscape in England was being revolutionised and Italia 90 was the last time the national team showed anything of interest. The team was also full of leaders, captains, players in their prime. Seaman, Adams, Pearce, Ince, Gazza, Platt, Shearer, Sheringham... and I'm probably forgetting others, all leaders in their own way.

Add to that the folklore of the atmosphere, some memorable goals, the thrashing of Holland... and finally the fact that we really did come an inch away from beating the old enemy and possibly winning the whole thing.

Again, Baddiel and Skinner speak really well about that time as whole. They did so in the doc tonight, but have done previously over the years in their podcasts or shows.

Watching that reminded me what a brilliant commentator Barry Davies was. Pretty much every clip they showed last night contained a great, eloquent little line from him, or a great reaction to what had just happened on the pitch. Motson always was and still is absolute garbage in comparison (and is getting worse and worse).

We were strongly linked with Weah, Baggio and Sukar a few times. I used to love Italian football, it was exciting and the games were often of high quality and there was some mad score lines. The colour on the stands and atmosphere as well. I remember Inter and AC playing on a rain drenched pitch that looked like one big puddle and they played what I called ping pong football to move the ball about as passing on the deck was impossible. I thought f***ing hell, these are good players and good teams. Loved Signori, that Parma team and had a soft spot for Sampdoria whose kit I had. Loved James Richardson and Brackley.

It’s mad how s*** football used to be.

Much preferred it myself, played by characters who smoked/drank that could win games with outrageous skill rather than rely on 6ft athletes who could run 16k a match.

The world cups from England 66 to Italia 90 were great as well, and p*ss all over anything in the last 20 years.....in my opinion anyway.

I'm 33, I'd struggle to name the last 4 of the World Cups after 2002 but remember the lot for the four from 90 upto that.

Just watched One Night in Turin, great documentary. The media back then were far worse than they are now, an absolute disgrace and the way they hounded Sir Bobby, vilified players and promoted hooliganism was shambolic. I read a book many years ago by a fan who went over there who basically wrote a diary and he detailed how the sun actually tried to get fans to throw chairs, bottles and basically cause a nuisance by offering fans money. Our politicians were no better, basically given their respective Italian counterparts the freedom to adult fans, target them and treat them like s****. Irocally they were one of the best behaved among the most supported teams’ fans, our game winning back European football.

People either forget or just don't know that as England manager, Bobby wasn't that great. He probably should have been sacked after Euro 88. We would never have qualified for the second round in 86 had the selection of Bryan Robson and Ray Wilkins been taken away from him. He did seem more flexible come Italia 90 though, but his use of subs in the semi weren't very good. It was crying out in extra time for Steve Bull to set about the German defence but he left alone. Possibly could have took Shilton off for penalties too. I don't ever remember Shilton saving a pen and sure enough he never got near any of their pens

Eight years in the hot seat (third longest serving England manager). 95 games, with better results (w47 d30 l18) than achieved with Newcastle. It’s easy to pick out woulda-shoulda-coulda choice points, decisions he might have made etc. There are also lesser, in my opinion, shorter serving mangers wth better records, many of which include more meaningless friendly wins. But I think he got so close to winning the World Cup with two well organised England sides that my main take on his tenure is he was unlucky. There was a nice bit of footage of him from Italia 90 which perfectly captures that feeling,

I'd say we got close to winning 86 World Cup in spite of him not because of him. Then there's the dismal failure to qualify for France 84 and the pathetic showing at Germany 88. Not as bad as any of the recent managers nor his immediate successor, but in my opinion, not a good England manager.

Yep, fully get the gist. Stumbled upon Beardsley and Lineker as well, as the received wisdom has it.

Given that we'd lost to Portugal and drew with Morocco before these 2 events deprived him of Robson and Ray Wilkins and then with this new team demolish Poland and Paraguay before Maradona turned up, then it's kind of impossible not to question the manager . But as I say, it's not just about 86. It's about the failure to qualify for the Euros in 84 and the pathetic showing in Germany 88 too. The press had every right to be critical of him.  Just not in the hyperbolic way the press do things. 

As much as I didn't rate him as an England manager incidentally, I didn't want him to leave given we all knew who the successor was to be and the predictably s**** way the team went after him

Watching it and no surprise it starts with how the press behaved.

The 1-1 draw and performance with Switzerland was scathing too. I remember leading up to it the media were after Shearer who of course ended as top scorer. f***ing scum.

There needs to be more stuff like this tbh, shows the human faces behind football. When you think about it other than on the pitch and the tedious post match interviews you actually don't see much of the players and their personalities. Sports journalism as a general rule is so poor and rumour based it's nice to see behind the scenes.

The hyperbole around football is generated by that vacuum with words like mercenary, traitor, hero etc. A more balanced and nuanced style of journalism needs to come to the fore.

Watched the first episode, cleverly narrated and presented and kind of interesting from a football nerd perspective if you like, but nothing revealing and almost exclusively scripted to sell the Man City brand and narrative under their owners to a wider audience. What it does serve is that since we were both taken over, we have went from being a club Man City couldn’t compete with to a club we may as well be in a different sport to as there is no comparison. I wouldn’t be watching that if it were us being documented with ease or a feeling of satisfaction mind. There is a kind of fakeness about Man City IMO, basically the Las Vegas of football. Would I swap places with them? Idealistically no, but if you can’t beat them join them and I know enough about the history of our game to accept that football today isn’t so different to football of yester year in many ways.

Fans lost their clubs to rich and powerful owners or business well before Englamd were even winning the WC in ‘66 on TV to a world wide audience...

Today though it’s deviated so much from its roots and is far too commercialised and relies on wealthy people, business’ and TV companies to the point where TV companies could replace real fans with CGi and sound effects if they wanted to so irrelevant are fans nowadays in the grand scheme of things when it comes to them being the benefactor of their clubs.

Enjoyed Mendy always having a laugh,his personality must be great to have in a team. Some player too!

Also liked Bernardo silva and don't mind Walker tbh. Would definitely get f***ed off with Delph though,he thinks he's far better than he actually is.

Also expected Pep to be a lot more tactical,I know they cut a lot of his tactics out as to not give anything away but a lot of what he said tactics wise was quite obvious,it seems he really struggles tactically against teams that attack too. A lot of the defeats were against teams that decided to have a right go at attacking them.

Binge watched the Man City thing... it’s obvious I know, but f***ing hell, compared to NUFC it’s a different sport and I’d now consider them a super club along with only a hand full of other clubs in the world who are pretty much untouchable.

What surprised me is their whole team from the players to the backroom team and even Pep all seem really likeable even the M.D.

And you have to love Vincent Kompany, that scene when he was talking to kids about Mandela and one asked what his crime was and Kompany said because he is black...

Pep is too intense for me though, I don’t think his methods would work at a club over say a span of 6 or more years as everyone would burn out and probably start on each other.

Delph came across as someone who looks way out of his depth in terms of being a footballer at that club and him shouting and balling and telling people to run and fight is probably his way of trying to fit in based on how he has been schooled in football. He come across as a bit of a dick, but I don’t think he is.

Him saying they lost against Man Utd I think because players didn’t run hard enough or get stuck in sums up British football, it’s not his fault though, that’s how he would have been instructed or coached as a kid.

Pep isn’t this all out attack attack coach, he is more tactical than I thought he would be and although he wants his team to play great football, winning is more important.

Loved the scenes with Silva with his boy, Sergio with his and Mendy seems a great character.

I hate everything about how the likes of City and Chelsea have went about becoming these elite clubs, but if you watch this documentary you can’t help but like that team. Chelsea I’ve always hated and there is nothing likeable about them or has been.

Pep though, I prefer watching Liverpool over City and other teams’ style of play, but what an individual, someone I’d love at the Toon one day. No chance though!

I don't know about anyone else who's watched it, but I couldn't understand a f***ing word Guardiola was saying during his animated team talks. :lol: The more excited he got, the faster and worse his English got, to the point it was just gibberish.
Moving those magnets around the tactics board like a frenzied kid playing air hockey n'all.

I'm pretty sure the club does have a cryotherapy facility.

Aye it’s a fridge freezer! It’s top of the rage though, it comes with bags of frozen peas to assist muscle strains etc.

It's the wheelie bins.

I'm the same, had no idea what he wanted :lol:

I do find it quite nice how with all the technology around these day, all Pep needs is a tactic board.

Just put that Boca Junior documentary on Netflix. First bit is Tevez talking about how much he loves Boca and putting the shirt on means more than anything to him.

Until somebody offers him more money that is...

No

:thup: It actively infuriates me. Same with all that s****. Towie, Made in Chelsea, BGT, The Apprentice, The Voice, Eastenders, Corrie... It's so bad it's physically annoying. I couldn't make 5 minutes let alone 20. I don't see how terrible quality and stupidity can be at all entertaining.

Is 

:lol: Your up your own arse if you can't sit and waste 2 hours of your life watching an ITV reality show?

I certainly wouldn't watch ITV, C4, C5, Sky1 etc for entertainment. They are all weak at the very best.

Always thought he was just a thick c*** but turns out he's got a lot of demons and fair play to him for opening up about it.

Anyone else think the game looked rigged? Mark Wright basically gave the Germans a penalty and their second goal by passing the ball directly to a German player when under no pressure. Then England stormed back to win it by just walking through the German defence. I know they're all old now but it looked scripted to fit the show to me.

It seemed Rob Lee hardly said a word across the two episodes. Can't remember him having an interview with the camera either?

Was good though. Would have loved for gazza and shearer to have featured. Some of mersons passing was pure class.

He came across really well, seemed a decent bloke. Will always be a s*** pundit though just like Phil Thompson.

This deal is really excellent if anyone wants Sky Sports but doesn't want to pay top whack for it. £199 for the entire season for all the sports channels with the crucial added bonus that Now TV allows you to watch two screens at the same time so me and a mate have gone halves and are sharing the account, tenner a month each for the season.

Spent most of last season hoping there would be a show on Leeds and Bielsa rather than Sunderland.

So turns out they were doing it all along, just dropped on Amazon. The production team must have been licking their chops during the whole spygate and that Villa game :lol:

Looking forward to watching it.
