Top 10: Good football films

We've named and shamed the worst football films but now Dan Ross, our very own Barry Norman (ask your dad), lists the 10 best football films

Purely Belter

Back before its name resembled an email address, Newcastle United'™s St. James'™ Park was the backdrop for a tale of two working-class Geordie lads trying to raise the cash for a season ticket to watch their favourite team.

Embarrassingly poor Alan Shearer cameo aside, this film is packed with the wit, humour and language that made the Viz such a hit, the two boys giving performances that make their characters impossible not to like.

And while the protagonists are believable, there's nothing irrelevant about their mission either: every modern football fan can relate to the Geordies'™ yearning for a time '˜when you didn'™t have to be loaded to watch football.'
