| A hidden gem
To say this is the best sit com made about football wouldn't be saying much as there really haven't been to many, unless you include Footballers wives. For those who remember the film the film then Mike Bassett manager carries on where the film left off. Mike returns to his dream job of managing Wirral Country the club his father played for.We then follow Mikes journey of trying to keep his team in the league his marriage together and the gifted genius Tonka (Gazza!) from pissing his career away once again. For football fans this series is a fantastic swipe at the modern game, and even if your this is a very funny and enjoyable series. 8/10
