Flares, Hairs & Football!
This has been making the rounds again on Astro & me would definitely recommend it to all footie fans.
The Damned United tells the tale of Brian Clough's ill-fated appointment as manager of Leeds United. Fourty four fooking days is all he lasted.
This has got to be one, if not the best, films on the beautiful game. A damn fine performance from Michael Sheen as Ole Big 'Ead & Timothy Spall as his partner in crime, Peter Taylor.
The scenes of muddy pitches & flamboyant sideburns really did bring back some fond memories of watching footie from a bygone era.
The actual footage of Liverpool's King Kev clash with Leed's Norman Hunter in the 1974 Charity Shield on its own is worth the entry fee.
