Currently showing on the History Channel as part of their 2 weeks of football leading up to the World Cup. Amazing memories from before Sky ruined football.

I still can’t believe we didn’t win it.

Believe it or not the official FIFA films which are also being replayed are pretty good too. Very well shot.

I've been watching them too. Very interesting if a bit sanitised. There are some other good football documentarys on History at the moment

The Kevin Allen one was the best by far imo.

Brilliant documentary. A spot on piece of work showing what it was really like for the supporters over there.

The new King will have been on the throne and gone by then, unless a Wembley invite comes in from Si. I seem to remember Goal being released to the Drake or ABC cinema. Fascinating for a young lad to see such a different perspective, and that different frame rate gives it a certain film historic quality. Incidentally one of my friends who was at Bread and Roses the other night was actually at the Argentina Ratin quarter final with her first racing driver boy friend. LOL. She's an old bird now. I have always preferred 24 frames and never got on with the harsh video thing, in fact never had a player of any sort. Must have been doing other stuff.

It’s a decent watch, that one.

Ah, Italia ‘90...I was 19. What a great ride it was. Remember thinking I might be in my 40’s or something before we got that close again. I’m 47.

All Played Out is a great read covering that tournament too. Might give it another spin before next week.

All Played Out is one of the greatest pieces of football literature ever written. Never again would any author be allowed such unimpeded access to elite players, nowadays any access would be strictly controlled by a litany of PR people and press officers.

A lot of us have an emotional connection with the World Cup, its easy to forget how awful some of the football was.

Agreed. We were good v Holland (well, Gascoigne was) but pretty poor otherwise, until we performed in the semi-final. Got away with it v Belgium and Cameroon. Similarly, we should have gone out to Spain in Euro '96.

One of the biggest missed opportunities was France '98. We came up against a strong Argentina side and almost turned them over with 10 men. Thought Hoddle had quite a good thing going with that squad.

I was thinking everybody was pretty awful throughout. Argentina were horrible to watch throughout and almost ended up winning the thing, Ireland didn't win a game but still reached the Quarter Finals

Yep. Standard was pretty low...but it was still more exciting back then - in part because of seeing it through the prism of youth but also because the international tournaments seemed exotic and it was the only time when there would be wall-to-wall football coverage.

It was also the tournament when Massing took out Caniggia so beautifully. A thing of wonder.
