Ray Winstone's Football Blinders And Blunders
Saturday 1st November 2008
Hotter than a lorry-load of stolen vindaloo, and twice as tasty, Ray Winstone; actor, geezer and football nut, takes you on a journey of the funniest gaffes, craziest cock-ups and the most brilliant bits of the beautiful - and occasionally ridiculous - game in Ray Winstone's Football Blinders And Blunders, released from 4DVD on 24th November 2008.
Presented in Ray's trademark no-nonsense style, this year's hottest Christmas stocking-filler DVD has got blinding goals, unbelievable blunders, brilliant free-kicks, nightmare misses, players going bonkers, and moments of mind-blowing magic.
The title also features an exclusive and insightful interview with Ray talking about all aspects of the game, including why he loves it so much, his favourite football heroes and villains. From cack-handed keepers to self-destructive defending, the DVD features over 90-minutes of the best footage football has to offer... Defences that are leakier than a worn-out sieve on the Titanic, penalty takers who have lost that battle, and their bottle - plus a bunch of dozy keepers! Ray Winstone's Football Blinders and Blunders also offers a little reminder of the sheer magic from the players that produce the goods on the pitch. From the legends of yesteryear -- such as the ultimate goal machine, Alan Shearer -- to the latest crop of football geniuses, like the boy wonder himself... the one and only, Cristiano Ronaldo... the DVD features some of the most spectacular bits of skill in the game.
If it's embarrassing own-goals, almighty balls-ups or just downright classic gaffes you're after, look no further than this bright and brilliantly entertaining collection that will delight and tickle football fans everywhere. Ray Winstone says: 'I did box for England as an amateur, and I was a bit tasty with my fists until going into the acting game. But football has always been my first love, and I'm pleased to share some of my favourite moments with you in this DVD.'
