the firm and adidas trimm trabs
This film (from 2009) is a remake of the 1988 one starring Gary Oldman, which is a hundred times better. It is about the bad boys of West Ham's firm and a young lad who wants to join in and then discovers it's maybe not as glamorous or as much fun as he thought it would be. He starts of idolising Bex, the top boy but then discovers he is not as great as he thought. Pity the film was pretty crap, which surprised me as it was by Nick Love (proper geezer, Millwall fan etc), who also did 'The Football Factory', which was miles better and much more realistic. The film was like one long advert for Fila, Sergio Tacchini and these bad boys below. Ah, took me back a bit, l used to have a fantastic Sergio Tacchini tennis top, if only l could fit into one now......
