The FA cup
« on: March 24, 2020, 13:09:19 »
For those suffering withdrawal systems. A new drama/documentary on Netflix tracing the origins of the Fa cup from Eaton college. I have watched the first three episodes so far. I have found it very informative and interesting. It is called: "The English game"

Nice one, I'll have a butcher's at that.

After watching the Amazon City documentary I watched the Sunderland one called Sunderland til I die, which is on Netflix. It was sobering to see the opposite end of the spectrum and how we were in the same shape as Sunderland, if not worse, only a few years ago.

I believe there's a Juventus one, boca juniors as well as others.

Is there a real Madrid one coming out soon, or it might have been Athletico?

This is historical and covers the demise of the cotton mills and how  the production of cotton football shirts was a savior
