1st Quarter Final
Escape To Victory vs The Damned United


Escape to Victory (1981)
Best known as 'that film with Pele and Rambo in it', this World War II-set actioner follows the events of when the Nazi propaganda machine decides it would boost moral for an all star Nazi team to take on a group of Allied prisoners of war in a football match in occupied Paris. The Allies, however, use the game as part of an elaborate escape plan.

The Damned United (2009)
Michael Sheen plays Brian Clough, the straight talking Yorkshireman who, after a successful spell at Derby County, takes over at Leeds United despite the fact that he actually hates the club. Not that that matters as they all pretty much hate him as well...
