Not for the Sport,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: United [DVD]  (DVD)
Don't buy this if you expect to watch soccer or football as it is called in the film. This is about the human beings involved in the tragedy. David Tennant does his usual excellent job of being the character and not calling attention to himself as the actor. The younger actors were often stiff and seemed more like players drafted to act rather than the other way around. It will be interesting to see where their careers are in ten years.

The BigE says:
The sport is called football all over the world not just in this film. It's only you Americans that call it soccer due to you also having that strange game that for some reason you call football even though in that game the ball is only occasionally kicked!

Sorry - I don't care about any sports - whether they use a ball or not!

If you don't care why comment? The Big E is absolutely correct. We all know the game as football. Your game we call American football.

Rarely comment on here but this ridiculous post has riled me. We created the sport, The most popular sport in the world. It was created as FOOTBALL and always has been football. No it's not about some pony sport you call American football whatsoever as if it was then it would be deserving of 1 star. It's about one of the greatest footballing clubs in the world and a tragedy that happened in 1958. Now toddle off back to your awful American sports that thankfully nobody else likes
