"Do I Not Like That!". It's actually pretty crazy that this revolutionary documentary was ever made.

The day has finally arrived. As England prepare to face Italy in Manaus tonight, many have written off the Three Lions before they've even kicked a ball.

But as we pull on the white jersey, and swallow down a locally-sourced ale, lest we forget, these were many before us who were much less fortunate.

I'm not on about the war, where loads of people died, although that was hardly a picnic. I am of course referring to Graham Taylor and co, during unsuccessful England's 1992 European Championship qualification period. Death's bad... but they had CARLTON PALMER in midfield, for Christ's sake.

Luckily for us, a behind-the-scenes documentary was made of their (ultimately flawed) journey - the ups and downs, the goals, the gaffes, and the Gazza's.

It's basically the programme which inspired Mike Bassett: England Manager, and it's fucking brilliant.
