A comedy football club? I thought Massimo Cellino was already providing us with that.

Just watched the opening episode. Not bad, and well above my expectations.

I thought it was cringewirthy garbage. It peaked after about a minute with the call to the radio station. Otherwise pitiful - difficult to tell if it was a comedy.
Will give this a wide berth.

I was interested to see how this would go down on here.

I enjoyed it and thought it was better then I expected. Having volunteered at a club I recognised all the characters. Maybe a bit too close to home for everyone to appreciate? Loved the club shop bit.

Totally agree, I'm usually not fussy what I watch, but took this off my planner, it was crap!!!

The worst part of it is the lead character - Pete.

Think a Glossop fan would have decked him long ago!

Thought Episode 2 was better than the first. Some slightly amusing observations so far, the statto fan, the meat raffle. But it's almost trying to hard. I've never seen an Asian man running a club shop before! But his lack of things for sale is well observed. Filmed at New Mills FC according to the NL Paper.
Probably stick with it.



2019-20 - 2 games, last Wallingford v Oxhey Jets, 13/7, goals 2, avgpg 1, new grounds 0.
New Grounds in 2019 - 14. 2018 - 44. 2017 -44. Grounds in Total - 1207.
RL Grounds - 33 (Last - Macron Stadium, Challenge Cup SFs (5/8/18), Speedway Tracks 50.

I've just started watching this and it is very well written, lots of issues that small non-league clubs face from day to day and very entertaining.

Episode five was excellent. This has been a very good series, I hope they commission a new one.
