    Default This is England films...

    I thought these were terrific and really reflected how things were in the best decade ever!.

    Especially the first film where Thatcher & the Falklnads was highlighted a fair bit and with the skinheads and attitudes toward ' Pakis' etc..

    Films like Greenstreet were good to as their was heaps of footy hooligans in those days.. maybe more so than now?

    Their called football ' casuals ' up here

    I haven't been for ages. The football is so expensive these days. Went to see Aberdeen v United at the start of the season and it cost us the best part of 60. And we got gubbed 3-0 as well.

    Same here Timey, we went to the SCP final and lost to St. Johnstone ffs!. price was around 83 for me and my two oldest lads inc bus, so that wasn't too bad.. but the fcuker bus driver left without us!. which made the defeat worse!
