The football factory by Nick Love( Visual )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film is an accurate, if brutal, look at the lives of a group of middle class thugs trying to fill a void in their otherwise dull and meaningless lives. Tommy is a thoughtful, introspective type, approaching 30. Although not averse to kicking a few heads in, he's haunted by an ominous dream of karma catching up with him. The excitement and adrenalin of a Saturday afternoon punch up, however is hard to ignore, much less give up. When swaggering towards The Den, these men feel important and part of something, but as bad apples that refuse to grow up and get a life, they aren't exactly examples to emulate
