Read the've made a film of the book

Memory says book had a bit of a "northern" bit in it (though may have been one of similar ones or maybe one of follow ups)

Think a few pages was about one of the guys copping off with a girl who was in process of writing a play about wigan days

Just out of idle interest was wondering if this bit made the big screen version

Anyone seen it yet?

Yes see it on DVD a couple of weeks ago..... No No Northern, I did see a scooterist I know who was a Millwall extra in it, but thats as close as it got to Northern.. Tell you what if you like English films well worth seeing..

WARNING

We are aware of a pirate copy of The Football Factory currently on sale. Please do not buy/borrow/rent this as it has nothing to do with the actual film. This is not the directors cut but a very early version which was put together by an assistant Editor. The Football Factory which is at the cinema's from May 14th is a far superior version and we want you to enjoy the Film as intended.

Cheers

people forget, the great Danny DeCourtelle is in Blue Juice too. I saw Party Party at the pictures at the time so must've had some minimal release (in Bromley!), it's tragic

ta Nick

this sounds like could be a hard one to find out , as all those seen film wont bother with boot dvd, and vice versa

only after a few new fresh lines of "down south" dialogue:)

seems answer is to wait till boot of offical dvd comes out (joke)

northern in films, yeah sort of original subject of thread, but to be honest while blue juice sort of carried it off ok-ish, and the odd mention or connection is entertaining, last think i wanna see widescreen full in your face cinema view is results of a film crew let loose at a northern event espically if they choose wrong one.

have a vague memory of that billy wearing a hat? - if so yeah thought was crap as well,
