“A decorated ex-Nazi paratrooper plays for redemption on the soccer field in this rousing and romantic true story. Released from a British prisoner-of-war camp, Bert Trautmann’s goalkeeping skills secure him a position on the Manchester City team, where he catches the eye of the club manager’s daughter Margaret (Freya Mavor). But his arrival also arouses the post-war ire of fans, many of them Jewish. With unexpected support from a local rabbi, Trautmann wins over his critics, famously playing the 1956 FA Cup Final with a broken neck. Unbeknownst to him was that his greatest challenge was yet to come. With David Kross’ sympathetic lead performance and Bavarian Award-winning production design, this magnificent epic speaks to the power of sports to unite.”

guest Thanks for sharing info about this movie. Not sure when it's going to go mainstream, but I definitely would love to watch it. A friend of mine, who happens to be British also mentioned this movie and he got to watch an early preview of it too and raved about it. BTW it is sponsored by AU...👏👏👏

HS Teach/Coach: Well, only parents can put a stop to this nonsense of missing that many days. Club coaches DO NOT CARE! Totally agree with the parent who said missing a day maybe two, but 3 in one week is a bit excessive. If parents stop paying, clubs couldn't afford...

Realitysports: Hs soccer is a joke, perhaps that’s way ,many players committ to taking days off sense it’s a clear pathway and is worth the sacrifice I believe.

CC79: Is US Club or SCCL planning to do something with coaching education? I see nothing happening on that front unless is not the website.

Resposne to CC79: LOL .. Why would they care?

Strikermom: Good luck to all with high school tryouts this week

REC: I don't know if it does. Many players enjoy the recreational level of middle school soccer because the look better within their comfort zone. It can be more fun than select.

slickdaddy96: Yes Middle and High School soccer is more fun because they get to play with their other school friends that play rec etc.... The competition is not as strong, and thus they can have more fun.

Champions League: We need more leagues than just SCCL with that name. It sells well even if it includes clubs or teams that never won anything.

hattrick07: This is our first year at ECNL, and maybe it's isolated to this coach? My hope is that it changes next year, because at this level, players need to earn their playing time.

atlfutboldad: hattrick07 Yeah, in tryouts, if they're not good enough to play, they're not good enough to make the team.

what a joke: don't waste your time at GSA coaches clinics or any other event ....

what a joke: "no rosters or numbers" ... they want to promote ONLY the players THEY want someone to see, NOT players that deserve to be seen.

atlfutboldad: @what a joke: Was this the Winter ID camp? How did they "promote" players?
