I saw this once many years ago on Channel 4, and was mesmerized - it hasn't been on since, but luckily I tracked down a timecode copy!
The film itself sums up perfectly what it is like to support the greatest football team in the world. The 61 Spurs Double side that played with a style never before seen or matched since. The film centres on Julia and her friends who follow passionately Spurs through this historic season, and it culminates in their attempts to watch the FA Cup Final.
The acting from the cast is superb, and it both funny and emotional. If ever this is on TV again, I recommend that you watch it.
I just wish I was alive during the Glory Glory Days to experience it as well.
