4 England Expects......TheTennantTwopiece | 20/07/2010 | See all TheTennantTwopiece's reviews (39)While you're laughing like a drain at the antics of Mike Bassett, you realise how true to life this film actually is. I watched it during the World Cup and drew many parallels between England's performance in South Africa and this film. Done in a factual documentary style, with Martin Bashir following Bassett around during the World Cup qualifiers and the tournemant in Brazil, Mike Bassett: England Manager is a funny, laugh out loud and often tragic look at how hapless it can be managing the national team. Best bits include Bassett's team talk at half time during the match with Mexico and the confrontation with the fans as he gets on the team bus after the opening game!. Well worth buying if you're a football fan...or just want cheering up after seeing the highly paid 'professionals' stumble out of Africa!
