Next Goal Wins.

About the American Samoan team trying to qualify for the world cup.

Genuinely the best footballing documentary I've ever seen.

Edit.....Just seen they're are making a film with Michael Fassbender and Elisabeth Moss in it.

Anyroad, watch it. It's ace.

The way the centre back was accepted in what you'd think would be a massively macho society was a proper eye opener.

That fergie one that was on the other night is meant to be a good watch. 

I started to watch it not expecting it to grab me, but I'm a sucker for old rarely seen, colour footage from the 60s etc.  Not just football related but Glasgow ship yards and blokes on nights out in pubs etc (they all looked about 50 and were probably in their 20s).  Great if you like reminiscing.

Brothers In Football. The story of Corinthian Casuals in London being the 'father' of Brazilian giants Corintians.

Best football documentary I think I have ever seen. What those plumbers, bricklayers and painters must have felt being welcomed by 30,000 people at Sao Paulo airport and playing in front of a packed stadium must have been indescribable.

Thousands of Brazilians making the pilgrimage to Corinthian Casuals home games too. Skriking in a bar in a demountable in some muddy English field at the realisation that they are visiting where it all started for their club. Brilliant documentary.

 

Sounds interesting. What platform/site is it on?

It was a BT Sports Film mate. I know it's on Youtube as my lad watched it on there.

Up there with the best football documentaries I have ever seen if not the best. Well worth the effort.

Robbo is a good documentary. Fuck me he was a great player. Best in the world in 1982. 

You will get dust in your eye when he’s down in Thailand coaching.

That was a great one. What a player. Remember him at Burnden with the Baggies and he was special

He was good but best in the world? GTF! Socrates, Falcao, Maradona, Tardelli, Platini, Littbarski all better midfielders than him at the time.

To be fair he was best in the world in his role which was different to the above.

Obvs I’m only talking about his time with WBA and England 😀

Robson was pretty much before my time but my memory of him is always being injured and shagging Claire Tomlinson whilst her leg was in plaster

Robson being described as best in the world is why we will never win owt

Lots of chugging around, scoring a few goals and dislicating shoulders does not equal world class

But its still overvalued here
