    Green Street

    Anyone else check out the movie? Saw it last night, thought it was well worth the watch. Went with 2 girls, one thought it was excellent, but not a film she would have picked to watch. The other was traumatised by it!! To be fair the fight scenes are fairly visceral, like Fight Club. Overall I preferred ID (another hooligan flick) but the ending in GS is far better than the ending in ID.

    Similiar to the Bourne Supremacy incident where there was a Cork fan spotted, the same is true of a Derry fan in Green Street

    The bit were Wood is waiting for his luggage at the airport, a big Derry City fan is also spotted in the frame
    Tifo poles, sausage rolls and a few goals.

    There's a clip where you catch a glimpse of the old Le Coq navy shorts.

    Haven't seeing it yet - a big group of mates of mine who are west ham supporters (drogs supporters first though ) are planning on going to it together. I'm going to head with them hoping theres a few scenes of west ham getting the sh!t kicked out of them .

    Looking forward to it - the Football factory was 100% muck but this one has been getting good reviews

    Reviews aren't worth the paper they're printed on theses days.
    I expect Green Street to be equally as poor as Football Factory because it's a story which has been told too many times now. Glorifying the football hooligans who are no better than the loyalist rioters in Belfast.

    Haven't seen it yet, football factory was hilarious!!! But why did West Ham allow the use of their stadium/ name in the first place??? (I think I saw Upton Park in a clip for the movie)

    I haven't seen Football Factory so I can't comment on it.
    I don't think Green Street particularly glorifies hooliganism, the last third of the film does show how people's lives improve when they leave the firm, and what staying in the firm can do to you as you get older.

    Yeah, one of the first things Elijah Wood does on arriving in England is get taken to a West Ham game by his sister's brother in law. The game footage lasts for about 10 minutes in total and it's the only actual football in the whole film.

    Not 100% sure if this is true but, I heard that they told WHU that they wanted
    footage of Upton Park and games for a film but neglected to say it was a film
    about cockney/WHU hooligans etc. The club just saw it as a bit of publicity,
    not realising what it was about.

    Havent seen it yet but I'll probably watch it over the weekend if its in the
    cinema here.

    It was a bit cliched alright but I enjoyed it.

    A little bit better than football factory imo. I haven't seen ID so can't comment in relation to that.

    Well worth going to see though.
    Champions!

    Yup ... thats it
    The SFAI are the governing body for grassroots football in Ireland, not the FAI. Its success or the lack of is all down to them.

    Thought Trouble on the Terraces and Hooligan were fairly good too.

    What did people think of the Firm ??
