Top five football movies fans will enjoy

Wherever you are in the world, there is a thriving football following and more often than not, there is also a thriving football league.
It is no wonder why filmmakers have tried to appeal to fans of the sport with various works of fiction and biographies as well. There is a ton of animation works (including Japanese anime) and live action movies telling stories around football that are popular among fans.
In this article, we will bring you five of the most popular football movies that you can enjoy as a football fan while you plot your next football betting strategy.

Green Street
British football fans are some of the loudest and wildest football fans because of the long history of the sport in their nations.
Their actions have, many times, descended into full blown hooliganism, which the movie Green Street, also known as 'Green Street Hooligans' and 'Hooligans', explores fully in a beautiful story from the perspective of one fan.

The story follows Matt Buckner who got kicked out of his journalism program at Harvard University after taking the fall for a cocaine bust and $10,000 for his silence. He travelled to England to visit his sister and try to restart his life after being kicked out.
He gets involved with a group of hooligan fans known as the Green Street Elite and becomes popular to the chagrin of some of the older members who never liked him to begin with.

After a few run ins with those disgruntled older members of the hooligan group which led to him witnessing the death of one of them due to fan violence, he leaves it all behind and returns to the US.
There he confronts the original owner of the cocaine stash that got him expelled from Harvard, gets a recorded confession, beats him up and leaves, singing the anthem of the Green Street Elite and the club they support, West Ham United.

The Goal! Trilogy
This movie explores the grass to grace story of many professional footballers through the eyes of a fictional player who gets his big break with Newcastle United.

The first movie in the Goal! Trilogy tells the story of Santiago Munez, a Mexican immigrant living in Los Angeles, USA. Munez is an incredibly talented striker and has dreams of playing professional football but works as a gardener in Los Angeles to make ends meet while playing football in his free time.

He gets the opportunity of a lifetime to try out for Newcastle United and eventually braves the odds to become a key player, even scoring the goal responsible for taking them to the UEFA Champions League.

The second movie sees Munez seal a big transfer to Real Madrid and then gets slammed with a heavy emotional baggage which stunts his career growth and almost makes him lose all he has worked for in his career and personal life.

Eventually, he gets his life back together, and wins the Champions League for Real Madrid by performing the role of a super sub.
The third movie focuses on other players alongside Munez who are getting their first international call ups ahead of the World Cup. Munez, already one of the world's biggest players at the time, was relegated to a minor role.

It shows the struggle of players to get ready for the weight of the World Cup and how they handle it.
The trilogy is most enjoyable if you are a proper football fan as a lot of cameos and football references are used in the movies.

Fever Pitch
This is another fan focused movie which shows the extent many football fans take their love for the sport.
Unlike hooliganism which involves violence, the fan depicted in this flick lives and breathes football, that it affects every other aspect of his life.

The film is based on a book about an Arsenal fan named Paul, whose love for his club gets in the way of his new job as a teacher and his relationship with his girlfriend. He arrives late at work due to following matches and sometimes is absent because of the sadness when Arsenal loses.

He also tends to ignore his girlfriend and put football first, which causes his life to crash until he finds a balance between his love for Arsenal and the rest of his life.

The Damned United
This is a biopic about one of the most popular figures in English football, Brian Clough. His famous stint at Leeds United where he was sacked after only 44 days is depicted in this film.
Clough, an eccentric manager, turned the Leeds dressing room upside down in just a month, starting and instigating fights in the locker room and dividing the fans of the club.

It was well received by many and angered a few, who felt the filmmakers did not portray them accurately. In all, it is a great story to watch because of the perspective it paints of Clough and his infamous 44-day spell as Leeds manager.

This tells a fictionalized story of how women's soccer got accepted in the United States. Set in 1979, the titular Gracie is a tomboy who loves soccer and plays it with her brother - who was the star player and captain at their high school soccer team - at home.

After her elder brother's death, she fought to honour his memory by replacing him in the school team, before championing the cause of a girls’ team at her school. That success led to more schools accepting girls in soccer, which then contributed greatly to earlier struggles by prominent women footballers to make women's soccer mainstream in the country.
