The Bobby Robson doco on Netflix is a decent watch (not least hearing Ronaldo (the original) speak English!!)

I'm currently watching Boca Juniors Confidential. Behind the scenes look similar to the Sunderland one.

not even a docudrama, more a "based on" as its full of inaccuracies The Blackburn FC team in the TV series is fictional - it was Blackburn Olympic that were the first working class team to win the FA Cup, Then Blackburn Rovers won it 4 times in a row.

Fergie Suter (one of the main characters) only ever played one game for Blackburn Rovers

Also no club were threatened with expulsion from the FA Cup for professionalism, it was actually Preston North End a few years later and it was the league not the cup

Still if you ignore the inaccuracies its an enjoyable watch

Surely they should show more respect and show their senior team?

So apparently Netflix dropped the "Class of 92" series, including the latest installment "Class of 92 - Full time".

Real shame as I enjoyed that documentary very much...

I'm now looking to dOwNlOaD it...but there are too few seeders!

Will definitely check out The English Game once I've finished watching the third season of Ozark.

Here's a good article that gives some background to the Characters Fergie Suter and John Love who are believed to be the first players to receive payment for playing football

Ive got BBC Match of the day set - 60's, 70's 80's DVD's to watch. damn good crowds, terracing, atmosphere and charactors of the game.

In season two of Sunderland Til' I Die (p 3 or 4 I think) they played a clip of Wigan fans chanting Will Grigg's on fire in the same way we used to do with Krishna and it gave me chills!

Well, Wigan is where that chant started.

So any chance 'Undefeated' the AWs 2010 world cup doco is online anywhere? I'd love to watch that.

Watched the first two episodes of S02 of Sunderland till I die this arvo while my wife worked in the garden with junior and baby slept. Man it's such a good doco, I really love it.
I've always wondered what it would be like to support a football club in the UK. They're just miles away compared to Italy (in terms of atmosphere, infrastructure, fan engagement etc).
Hopefully I'll watch another episode before bed tonight

If you haven't already NZPower, watch Season 1, too.

I watched Season 2 over the weekend. One notable feature of this season is that there is a lot less interaction and talks with players than in Season 1. Apparently a lot of the players weren't keen on Season 2, as they were worried that it would be hard to shed the image of 'losers' if things didn't go well.

I also have to say I found Charlie Methven very unlikable too.

Loved s1 GG... And yes Boxy.. He's annoying as anything. So far I thought the owner was actually the most likeable character.. Very down to earth. Methven sounds just quite fake and very annoying
