    She went full Redknapp. Glorious.

      Who's the "kin yes, lads" boy? (and is he the same as the "gertcha" one)
      And is the "inherited power" hat wearer supposed to be somebody or just a general fan?

        That's six-year old Prince George (the youth team).

          I sort-of have the full story, best told over a pint - it was my then girlfriend that made the documentary, after I got her into the O's. Blimey, brings back some memories.

            Actually, just as an anecdote - we were in the crowd for the game where that scene happened. GF had access to the dressing room for half-time; I stood on the terrace wondering why the players had come back out early, she then rejoined me saying 'you'll never believe the stuff I've just got', and we couldn't wait to get back home and watch the rushes on our telly. Eye-popping stuff.

              Zac Goldsmith, I think.

                About a month ago there was a thing on Twitter about the Queen's death being announced on some bantz-tastic WhatsApp group containing Gibbo, Morty, Cheeks and some other similar type names.

                    Yep. It was the first thing I looked for.

                      Holy Fuck. I can't even imagine what that must have been like at the time.

                          I think we can also safely say that BDG listens to the WSC podcast - episode 4 contains the "dinner" clip.

                          As I am sure that you all already know, being keen subscribers and Patreons. *narrows eyes*

                            Ah yes, makes sense. I hadn't seen that the three-time loser Islamophobe had taken his consolation prize seat in the Lord's yesterday.

                              John, I'm fairly sure I met you during that season. Have we discussed this before on here?

                                Berba, that docco was made just as a curio I think - young film-maker living in east London making a pitch. In the aftermath of the Graham Taylor docco, they think it's a flier. They are then handed comedy/car-crash gold in a season that went spectacularly pear-shaped, with the club dicing with bankruptcy and managed by an inexperienced, er, maverick like Sitton (and Chris Turner, who sort of lurked in the background when the cameras were about).

                                  E10, we had a PM about it some years ago. We met in the Alfred Hitchcock, when GF was - I think - trying to get the Orientear on board.

                                  The premise was as you say. There were a bunch of us running a community arts group at the time, all trying to make interesting projects. I took GF along to the O's, she loved it, and - realising that Orient had very little idea of 'PR', and might be open to a documentary - had the genius idea of tying in the Rwandan Civil War and the O's financial plight. She approached C4 with some shots she'd done on our arts organisation's new video camera, (Stuart Cosgrove ultimately commissioned it) and off she went. Generally, 'access all areas', cos most people thought 'ah, a camera - any publicity...' and had no idea of the calamity to come. Unfortunately for me at the time - don't worry y'all, I'm well over it now - the calamitous outcomes extended to our relationship during the filming, with one upshot being that I've never actually got round to seeing the finished documentary. The rushes were very good though - she certainly knew her onions.

                                  It's strange that it sometimes appears in my life again, via odd routes.

                                        It's probably just me, but in the panel with Edward, the Queen begins to take on the look of Neil Warnock.

                                            Yeah, I daresay he's had something lined up for a while, but didn't want to be too, eh, premature

                                              Sitton was my instructor when I took my FA Coaching Certificate in 2001. At that point I think he was working as a taxi driver as well as doing the odd stint as a tutor for the London FA and there was more than one reference to the documentary. He was an interesting bloke, combining warmth and some (surprising) softness with a hint of menace. And he was very funny. Sometimes inadvertently. On more than one occasion he stressed to us the importance of 'checking our stream', to make sure that we were hydrated properly.

                                                He was my instructor when I took the course in 1994 (he failed me...), a few months before the documentary was aired. He demonstrated the most appalling misogyny during the making of the documentary - I mean, really appalling - that I struggled to appreciate his warmth. I also found out a fair bit about his menace.
