United We Fall – A Football Mockumentary TSS October 10, 2014 Leeds United 7 Comments David Moyes’ era ended too soon and a desperate summer splurge may buy them a Champions League spot, but if Roy Keane’s autobiography has taught us anything, it’s that there’s plenty of laughs still to be weened from Manchester United. Out next week, a new football comedy takes aim at our old foes and the result looks to be worth a trip to the cinema when it opens in selected venues (including Showcase Leeds) on October the 17th. United We Fall is a mockumentary about 5 football mates who played for the biggest football club in Manchester – the team David Beckham played for – and had the incredible chance to become heroes and make history. All they had to do was win the last 3 games of the 2010 season. Olly Hunter is slightly more interested in his looks and brands than his football. Danny Keegan is a vehement socialist despite earning 150,000 pounds a week. Stevo Keegan is a cheeky c*** – in his own words. A practical joker from Sunderland, he has absolutely no boundaries. Kwasi “Modo” Amoako was brought in from Ghana to help the team win. He has a voracious sexual appetite. Until he converts to Islam just before the FA Cup Final. Kurtzie is a German goalkeeper who hates racism, loves extreme danger and has a 100% foolproof system for saving penalties. Their story is helped along by the Prime Minister, a possibly corrupt FIFA official and a foxy PR assistant who all shed light on what exactly happened in those 2 weeks. Homophobia, racism, adultery and plain old stupidity still haunt “the beautiful game”. Could these five “ordinary lads” make history? No they bloomin’ couldn’t. So they re-unite over a formal lunch with their partners to work out what went wrong – and some very surprising secrets spill out. Starring Jack Donnelly (Atlantis), Robert Portal (The Kings Speech) and a troupe of rising British comic stars, United We Fall is devised, directed and produced by Gary Sinyor (Leon the Pig Farmer, Stiff Upper Lips, The Bachelor, Retreat) mrbigwheels The U21 match against Doncaster was tremendous… those goals. 6-0… Irving08 Everyone up here is talking about Chris Dawson, his leadership of the U21’s, his partnership with Adryan, and the 6-0 drubbing of Donnybrook Rovers. No-one gives a toss about Keane, Man.U or any other team. We are bloody Leeds, period. Really TSS. mrbigwheels He loves to get us going Irving… The quality in that match is so positive and totally enjoyable… knowing it’s the future. Irving08 Agreed but we have a lot of imports to accommodate too. Dawson is, in my opinion, the best midfielder on our books; and he knows his worth. Rebel White This is just abysmal. A week including top class U21’s, Haigh, Bates etc. and this is what TSS comes up with! What a joke. By the way if I want proper film reviews I’ll go to Empire. Irving Ah Bates, there’s no escaping the old so-and-so. Still it will be a relief not to have to listen to the maudlin tones of the Radio Leeds crew and Andy Ritchie – mind, I quite like the Huddersfield buff (reminds me of Don Mosey). oldschoolbaby My homicidal urges mean I must “give a toss” about Keane. But I just can`t be arsed going to the cinema.
