    Just watched it. Gave me a lump in me throat, very emotional flick, Bert very calm and cool, what a hero.

    Fucking journos should be mandated to watch it, there's even a scene with the dipper cúnts behaving as expected, that's istoree.

    I provided consultancy to the film and in the first draft of it that scene did not have a club name (script had another team completely), but they were aware of the CL welcome and by the time it was properly released the Liverpool word was clear! The magic of film.

    Gary, I''d be interested in your opinion on the FA Cup Final commentators in the film referring to us as 'Man City'. Did you have a bit of a battle with the producer on that ? We were never referred to as that in those days. As I recall the Pathe News clips referred to us simply as ''Manchester', and our opponents as 'Birmingham'. Also, our Cup Final socks in the film weren't right - the white hoops were too wide. Just interested in what went on in the background from your point of view. Cheers.
