Abstract

Even, indeed especially, at the bottom of the football pyramid, amongst the unskilled and ill-disciplined huffing and puffing that (largely and large) men undertake on a Sunday morning, the genre’s utopian sensibilities endure, alongside more caustic film parodies appropriate to the (lack of) skills on show. This chapter notes especially the ‘fitba’ films penned by Irvine Welsh, such as Trainspotting (1996) and The Magnificent Eleven (2013).
