Scholes, Giggs, Neville, Neville, Butt and Beckham…The Class Of ’92 transformed a football team, won trophies, international caps and ushered in a new era for football…
Now meet Hunter, Fallis, Keegan, Kurtz and Amoako. They followed in their predecessors’ illustrious footsteps and were on the verge of matching their achievements in one record-breaking season.
And then it all fell apart.
United We Fall charts the rise and fall of this quintet in a hilarious spoof soccer documentary, and answers the question asked of another Manchester United legend, George Best: “Where did it all go wrong?” It comes to DVD on 9 February 2015 courtesy of Metrodome.
Improvised and filmed by Gary Sinyor, the film, which was released in cinemas in October, tells the tale of footballers gone bad. Racism, homophobia, philandering footballers – all get a proverbial roasting in this comedy that’s less Class Of 92 and more IQ of 92.
Olly Hunter (Jack Donnelly – Atlantis) is the bankable brand of the team; Danny Keegan (Ryan Pope) the millionaire socialist; Stevo Fallis (James Rastall) the dirty player and practical joker; Kwasi ‘Modo’ Amoako (Matthew Avery) is a Ghanaian who likes the high-life and lives a rapper’s lifestyle and ‘Kurtzie’ (Jonathan Broke) is the German keeper with an obsessive personality. They are the heart and soul of the United team who are only a few hours away from a historical treble.
How did it all go pear-shaped? The unraveling of their season is told in interviews with the players and, climactically, in a toe crunching reunion with the players - and their WAGs.
