When Saturday Comes Reviews
Sean Bean plays the lead in this low budget independent film from 1995 about a thirty something Sheffielder who somehow becomes a first team hero at Sheffield United FC. Yes them.
Just the sight of one of my childhood Sheffield Wednesday heroes Mel Sterland playing in the streaky bacon kit from the nineties made me want to vomit.
The only good thing from this film was a song from Joe Cocker and seeing the old Stones Cannon Brewery. Sadly no longer there.
Then this is how i would of hoped it had happened,
This movie covers everything you want in a rags to riches football movie the movie is a joy to watch.
The performance by Shaun Bean was great (as usual) and Pete Postlewaite puts in a great performance again, the story just flows nicely and easy to watch.
Its a movie i watched again and again when i was a kid and have it on dvd.
Even now i watch it and something inside me wants to get on to a football pitch and get spotted just like Jimmy does here.
To Jimmy life was just a game... Until the game became his life!
