    Take Us Home: Leeds United (2019) is an outstanding docuseries following Marcelo Bielsa's arrival at Leeds United in the 2018-2019 season. Although they didn't get promoted until his second season with the club, you fall in love with this story of making Leeds a club worth following.

    Hello Mr Billionaire (2018) scored a hefty $367M in the worldwide box office. Excess consumption is not my cup of tea, but maybe this film reflects the power, taste, and culture of China's movie goers. Now on Amazon Prime in the USA.

    The Keeper (2018) is the story of Bert Trautmann, a WW2 German POW who became a ManCity goalkeeper. He is known for continuing to play in a FA Cup Final despite breaking his neck. This film was largely relegated to ethnic film festivals but should not be. It has valuable messages for this time in our lives.

    It's not really a love story, but The FIFA Family: A Love Story gives a good accounting of the corruption behind the awarding of #WC2022 to Qatar, and what it's like to be Chuck Blazer's Cinderella. Good docu from DR . Included with Amazon Prime in the USA.

    Very good things can come out of obsessive fan behavior, such as this feature length documentary and a book about the MISL Wichita Wings in the 1980s. (@don gagliardi take note!) You can watch God Save the Wings (2020) via the St Louis International Film Festival through Nov-22-2020.

    Soviet Football - The Untold Story (2017) has everything you need to know about Soviet football (советского футбола) history in under an hour. On Amazon Prime in the USA. I always wondered where Quakes DP Vako came from, and this documentary helped explain that to me.

    If you like AS Roma or Bosnia, you will certainly enjoy the glamour and goals in Roma Story: Edin Džeko (2020). You can watch this AS Roma TV documentary on youtube.

    Even though the documentary Sleeping Giant (2012) took place over 10 years ago, it is still very relevant. If India could qualify for WC 2026, it will definitely be a Sleeping Giant no more.
