Not on Netflix that I know but a good watch is The Damned United. 

And Mean Machine for a bit of levity during these at home days. 

Do you happen to remember that Scottish flick (or maybe it just takes place there) where a lower division club brings in a ‘bad-boy’ washed up player, but revived his career and gets to the Scottish cup final in the process? I really enjoyed it, but I can’t remember what it was called...

It was called Shot at Glory.  Starred Glasgow Rangers legend Ally McCoist (who in the movie was a former Celt*c player), Robert Duvall and Michael Keaton.

Bit dodgy acting and accents but a light watch if bored to tears and nothing to do, LOL.

Don't know why it came up but there was an extended highlight reel on YouTube of the '86 FA Cup Final, a final I vividly remember.  Saturday (?) AM, the television cranked, me on maybe 2 hours sleep and still buzzing and the Old Man hung over and as sour as lemons bleating at me about all this soccer nonsense. 

Liverpool-Everton.  Rush & Dagleish vs Lineker & Sharp and Grobbulaar at his flakiest (as I remember it anyway).   All sort of came apart for Everton as the match got on but recall coming away with my impressions of Rush and Lineker being affirmed. 

Quite the year '86.  Celtic took the league at the death if I recall, Liverpool with the double and best of all Canada off to the World Cup Finals that summer.  Applogies if I got that wrong but that's how it all comes to mind.  Quite the year.  

Have some CPL matches on disc that redhat gave me.  Need to dig those out.

Have never watched it but Robert Duvall's accent in this is widely regarded in Scotland as the worst ever by a Hollywood actor.

Time to watch Green Street Hooligans again, not everyone's cup of tea but my friends and I enjoyed it (7.5 out of 10 on IMDB):

Been meaning to watch the sequels as well, 2 and 3, but don't think they'll match the original as with many sequels.

 

There were sequels?!?

Netflix is telling me Ultras drops Friday and The English Game just glitches out before it can even load an info screen. :(

Both come out on Friday. So there is only the trailer on there at the moment.

Onesoccer is replaying the CanPl finals at 8PM and 10PM tonight.

Could OneSoccer/CPL/CBC make some games from last year available on CBC, say Saturday afternoons, over the next few weeks?  People might appreciate the chance to see some sports as a break from COVID-19 coverage.  Also, a chance to show off the league ahead of the 2020 season (we hope :)).

That is a damn good idea.  Another networks are feeding us "classic" MLS, NCAA B-ball etc.  Why not a few CPL games?? V-cup, Forge in champions league etc.

I don't see why I would do. There are so many Olympic moments that sell more than CPL, that I think they'll stick to that.

Wonder if One Soccer is looking at a deal for the Belarusian Premier League as its the only league in Europe that is still playing? It would give them some live programming as I am sure other channels are looking at it too.

I wonder if One Soccer will give some short of subscription extension. Seeing as my membership expires at the end of April, it is not much but I was hoping to watch teh first few weeks of the season before needing to renew.

In Spain Roures and Mediapro have done nothing, it is a bit disgraceful I find. My gym stopped charging for services, others may find other services not rendered are pardoned, but Mediapro keeps not only charging for football, through Movistar, but announce the tv deals with all the football packs in place, as if they could reasonably give a new subscriber Champions, League, Cup, and so on. It is a bit disgraceful. And they have not replaced the massive gap with anything but reruns, there are no new programs of analysis, no talk shows on the current situation, they are not spending a dime.

Roures is all freaked out about the season not ending, his only idea is that this year has to finish, next year hardly matters. I don't fully undderstand the logic in financial terms, but in social and human terms he is really out of it. 

Honestly: One Soccer is generating more content than Mediapro platforms in Spain. Okay, One Soccer, most of it for me, anyways, is rather obnoxiously giddy and superficial. It is really over the top, with a few exceptions (some of these interviews with retired vets are okay).

I watched the Ian Hume and Craig Forrest interviews and really enjoyed them. I had completely forgotten that Forrest played for Chelsea for a bit. Looking forward to more interviews like these.

I can't seem to find Ultras on mine. Absolutely loving the Sunderland series though. So well done.

Have you watched Tiger King yet? It is a bizarre story but worth a look. I suggest anyone here give it a go.

The desperation in this post is tangible.

Anybody else get charged for last month? 

Find it weird that they are still taking payment, and there's absolutely no live content at all.

I've been trying to watch some CPL matches from last year but after about 10 minutes the replay continues only on the device and the tv is frozen.  Anyone else have this issue or had it in the past?
