Sports Film of the Week: The Class of '92

Perfect viewing for these cold evenings.

Title: The Class of ’92

Release date: December 2013

Director: Ben Turner and Gabe Turner

Plot: The Class of ’92 is far more than an excellent football film. It tells the story of six player’s incredible journey from humbling beginnings as youth team players at Manchester United to the point of achieving unparalleled success with the biggest club in the world.

David Beckham, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville, Phil Neville and Paul Scholes - the subjects of the film and ‘The Class of ’92 – feature throughout as well as appearances from some of the most iconic names in the sport including Zinedine Zidane and Eric Cantona.

The 98 minute documentary covers the period between their FA Youth Cup triumph in 1992 up until the club’s Champions League victory in 1999, which, of course, completed the remarkable Treble under Sir Alex Ferguson.

The film, however, explores far more than football but also the cultural and social changes Manchester, and Britain as a whole, were experiencing at the time.

Regardless of who you support, this is a thoroughly enjoyable watch and an insight into the success of some of the best footballers ever to grace the Premier League.
