  1.  Excellent nostalgia

    Posted: 

    This World Cup campaign took place against a political backdrop of riots due to the poll tax, hooliganism and requests from No. 10 for England to withdraw from the tournament. This alone should show how much football has changed in the years since. The documentary also shows the extent to which the print media were easily swayed. Pre tournament Bobby Robson obtains another job with PSV and is villifed for this choice. Post tournament he still goes to PSV but as a hero. Key difference between the DVD and the Blu Ray is the very good sound quality. Lots of good asides, would have preferred some more extras (England goals from the tournament for example), but this is a terrific warm up for this WC and brought back a lot of memories for me. Some might regard the late 80s as having features which should be brought back (terraces and cheap tickets), but few go to the game worried for their safety now or the safety of friends or children. For that we should be grateful. To Gazza, we owe an emotional debt as he allowed men to cry in public and still be regarded as men.
