On the brink of making history, Manchester United only need to win the last 3 games of the season to claim the glory of the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League titles. 'United We Fall' charts the team's complete failure as the dirty, dubious and desperate antics of the 5 key players ensure their downfall. With contributions from the Prime Minister and a dodgy unofficial FIFA ambassador, the 5 mates reunite to look back on all that went wrong.
Could almost be true, and is funny

I never expected this film to be good - I only took it out because I like one of the actors - but I was to be pleasantly surprised. It is very funny and very well observed.
A satire of "Class of 92" , and shot as a series of reminiscing interviews, this film mocks football megastars and the insane amounts of money they make, their wives, the North/South divide, politicians, brand sponsorships, dodgy entrepreneurs, you name it. Light-hearted entertainment with a sting of veracity in the tail.
It is a testament to the calibre of the actors that the dialogue is improvised on the spot, there was no script; perhaps that is why it is so convincing.
