Football documentaries

A couple of powerful ones on the iPlayer:

Finding Jack Charlton
A look over Jack’s time in charge of Ireland and what he was like as a man. Some footage of him in recent years as dementia took hold.

Football’s Darkest Secret
Harrowing and devastating three-parter about the players who were abused by coaches throughout the ‘80s and early ‘90s. The men don’t hold back on the details and you can see the lasting effects of these experiences.

Both worth watching.

I have watched Football's Darkest Secret and your words have summed it up, there's no way the hierarchy at Crewe didn't know what was going on and Dario Gradi should certainly be facing more questions.

Watched the Jack Charlton documentary which was really well produced. He was certainly a character!

The recent footage was hard to watch. What a horrible and cruel disease dementia is.

Both are a BRILLIANT watch! With my affinity to Leeds, I was especially interested in the JC one - he looked so different then to when I met him at a "Don Revie's Boys" night in 2005.

I thought that ex-Aldershot FC striker Gary Johnson might have appeared in the FDS one (he was also one of the victims that had the harrowing experience!), but he didn't.

On You Tube there's a mini doc on Notts County-the trillion dollar fraud about the Munto Finance take over, all down to a serial fraudster and fantasist.
Proves to me-yet again-that all the red tape for financial checks and endless demands for proof are only a nightmare, hassle and problem for honest people-fraudsters walk all over them with ease.

Johnny Warren football mission

Documentary of the greatest proponent of Australian football for 50 odd years.... tragically lost his life to cancer before seeing his country again qualify for the world cup........probably won't interest many here although plenty of new arrival British in the 74 world cup team.

Good one on Netflix about a guy called Steve Zakuani. He had the world at his feet then he suffered a bad injury and was never the same. Well worth a watch. Not a film but a decent book is From Delhi to the Den: The Story of Football's Most Travelled Coach. Well worth a read

You Tube has opened up a whole new world of Football Docs & Non League 2 me
Fairy a Tale Docs that stick in my mind are:
From a Jack 2 a King
Swansea last day survival & climb 2 Premiership -
Bournemouth In House Doc
League 2 Survival (& Points deduction) to Premiership
I believe in Miracles - Nottingham Forest
(Brian Clough the Supreme Man Management)
Bo66y
Self explanatory - Also total incompetence of FA hierarchy

All relevant 2 Us Shots Dreamers
