Watched this on TV when it first came out, and I was present at the match shown at the start - Everton - and Spurs gave out silly foam hats with a cockerel that stood up at the front. I still have it.
.
This is a lovely tale of schooldays innocence and friendship, woven around Spurs glory, glory days of the early '60s. Wonderful stuff!

Took me back to the great days of 60's football. A lovely film made better knowing that it was a true story.

Whilst the film has obvious appeal to Spurs supporters, given the basic plot, it is also a film that has a wider appeal. The plot is described in the product notes, so I won't dwell on that much further. Rather, I would point out that this is a film that Spurs fans have been trying to get their hands on on DVD for some considerable time, with the American release (thankfully produced in zero ragion) being imported in considerable numbers over the last couple of years. This UK release appears to have slipped out - why haven't 4dvd put announcements or advertisements in Spurs Monthly, organised a competition for the programme in order to publicise the release or even arranged to have the DVD sold in any of the Spurs shops? Believe me, if more people were aware that it was out there, they would sell more copies.

This was an absolutley fantastac film totaly ruined by VERY poor transfer to DVD (and sensorship), Even in 16:9 format left black at screen TV edged why? (this film could have been counterfeit but was sold by Amazon).
I have never seen such poor transfer before.
This ruined what I remember was a great film, straight to bin. N.B, The girls were older than me. so no accusations.
