So much more than just a football documentary
Verified purchase
Watched this doc last night, The Three Kings. So much more than just a sports documentary. A trip through the culture of the 50’s to the early 90’s narrated by the exploits of three of the greatest football managers ever to hark from Scotland. It includes Fascinating facts such as a quarter of the earth’s population follow either Manchester United, Liverpool or Celtic. Sprinkled liberally with iconic nostalgic football moments, European Cups, League titles and ‘I was there’ games such as Denis Law backheeling MU into the second division (I WAS there). A must for football fans but a must for anyone interested in the recent social history of England and Scotland including a section around the miner’s strike of the early 80’s. A great stocking filler!

Stunning and heartfelt

Covers the depth and breadth of emotions stirred up by these 3 great men. Their impact on the game and society in this country is explored and revealed with great skill and understandning. This doc. gives you a visceral sense of the roots of the British game from the mines to the streets to the overflowing stadiums. At one point I wept and at the end was left starry eyed.

For anyone in the world (not just english and many of the scots themselves) that deride Scotland and its contributions to world football should grab a wee dram, sit down on the couch and see how 3 Scotsman didn't just build a team ..... they built a philosophy ..... they built a football club .... laid the foundations for future success ....... put pride back into poor working class cities ..... and presented them to the world

Quite brilliant documentary

A truly Superb football documentary with three great early managers being profiled
Verified purchase
If you want to know where the spirit of three great football clubs and their supporters comes from then watch this film. The same philosophy applies to many football clubs but these three amazing managers showed the way in that football is always about the fans plus their club and this still applies today. That was a fundamental reason the greedy and crass 2021 European Super League was always going to fail. They just did not understand what the competitive game meant to everyday supporters who are in turn the clubs and in turn are football!.
