Football Chants

Nine Songs director Michael Winterbottom has been removed as director of football film Goal!. This is probably because Mel Gibson and the other backers of the film are self righteous prudes from the “violence is sexy but sex is evil!” crowd. (I’m not against violent movies. I’m a big fan of action films, to be honest. But there are people out there who’ll tell you it’s okay for kids to see torture scenes and shoot outs but scream about depravity at the merest flash of thigh. The politest thing I can say about these folks is that they’re fools and should get a grip.)

I’d pretend I’m going to boycott Goal!, but it’s a football film and I’m not going to watch any football film unless it has Keira and Parminder in it. (Two name checks in two posts. You go girls!)
