  • HAN75 'There's too few films about women playing football. Apart from Bend it Like Beckham there's not really been anything else, so maybe that's something for filmaker to address. '

  • Sylak 'Does anyone know the name of that film where everyone in the whole street decides to paint the outside of their homes 'team colours', in support of their local side - except for one man who resists the mounting pressure to conform; and in the process of making a stand, looses the respect of his friends, co-workers and eventually even his wife and children walk out on him! It was a great film and I'd love to watch it again. I think it was a channel Four film - but can't be sure! Think it may have been set in the North? But again not sure.'
