In light of recent footballing events, we thought we’d supply you with something film AND football related to celebrate our victory so far. Football films are also great examples of proper British film. Whether it’s our witty banter, determination, or our ability to include social realism into all genres (even sports!)- British footie films are really underrated!
So, here they are, the top five football films OF ALL TIME! Well, according to the film pundits that work in the NYFA office…
1. Bend It Like Beckham (2002)
It’s got everything from charming wit, societal issues to lots of tense football scenes (and Keira Knightly).
2. Goal! The Dream Begins (2005)
3. Looking for Eric (2009)
4. The Damned United (2009)
5. Mike Bassett: England Manager (2001)
