I am gonna put it out there and say that Bend it like Beckham surprised me.

But yeah generally the documentaries are better made. 'Take the ball, pass the ball' is a brilliant documentary about Barcelona's Tiki Taka days.

Fever Pitch -- the Arsenal one. Not the baseball movie.

What's it about?

There's a series on Netflix. Think it'd called The English Game or The Beautiful Game - it's based on the FA Cup at the time of Etonian teams dominating, and the arrival of working class teams from places like Darwen (Blackburn)

Sounds interesting, I'll check it out on Netflix!

What's it about?
It's about the 1989 Arsenal team that won the title. Winning it at Anfield in a title decider

I think I started watching this but didn't continue it, must have been binging something else.

Watched a few episodes of that. It can be good but also quite slow at times

Absolutely loved that. Was the first thing I binged in lockdown. I think they discovered after it came out that some of it was historically incorrect, which was a bit disappointing, but if you're into drama series' as well as football it's definitely worth watching

They added some of the drama elements, but I think it does accurately track the fight to have player’s paid

I agree, drama and football series make a pretty good combination

I don't really feel much towards Liverpool or City, but watching United, Arsenal or Spurs lift trophies is not something I'm gonna do haha. At least I know I don't have to worry about watching any other London club lift the Champions League trophy  ;D
