Gillette Soccer Saturday combines every man’s three favourite things; Saturdays, Football and Shaving. Since 1992 it has been every bit a British staple as Monty Python, Hugh Grant and delicious horse lasagne and even today, every Saturday the laughter of the five fills living rooms and hearts across the nation.
There’s humour to be found in every quarter from Jeff Stelling’s word play wizardry to Phil Thompson’s grotesque nose. Soccer Saturday isn’t far off being a post modern sitcom which got us thinking; what if it WAS a sitcom?
With Mrs Brown’s Boys regarded as BAFTA-worthy, these are dark times for British comedy so by blending Jeff, Paul, Matt, Charlie, Phil and Chris’s antics with the charm of Only Fools and Horses and the cheese of every sitcom produced in the USA during the 80s, Football FanCast is proud to present… Gillette Soccer Saturday: The Sitcom!
