MR BECCLES FC

by stephen curtis

"John Humby who is now 85 has been associated with amateur football club Beccles Town FC for 47 years. He first joined the Suffolk (England) football club in 1964 and has witnessed not only the Dad’s but also their Son’s playing for the club. With the popularisation of the Barclay’s football Premier league, along with new gadgets etc, Kids today now have so much that football, which was always the top priority of going out to kick a ball with your mates, has now become a thing of the past.

Football clubs are folding just as quick as Pubs closing. The national team at some point will suffer, and after the recent 2014 world Cup the signs are beginning to show! Grass roots football with the likes of John Humby will never be replaced!”

ONCE UPON A TIME IN BERMONDSEY

by jacopo maino

"Once Upon a Time in Bermondsey explores the concepts of obsession, passion and commitment. It is a story about time – about past, present and future, and how they merge in the collective consciousness of a football club: Fisher FC.

Fisher FC is a London-based football club with more than one hundred years of history. The club was forced to leave its local area, Bermondsey, after a series of events eventually leading to bankruptcy in 2009. After that day, the club is wholly owned and run by its supporters. With their old home ground lying in ruins, the supporters’ obsession is to rebuild the club from the ashes, making it return to its former glory and to the area where it belongs, Bermondsey.”

THE OLDEST FOOTBALLER IN ENGLAND
by alex knowles

"60% of older people in the UK agree that age discrimination exists in their daily lives.

The film dispels the myth that ‘old people are past it’ and instead introduces us to inspirational people with invaluable insight, exceptional passion, a never-ending supply of wonderful stories and a thirst for life that refuses to fade.”

FOOTBALL LEGENDS, POSTERS.

by lasse betzer

"This is a poster project I made for my self. Being a design student the assignments you get often leaves you with a limit of directions you can go. Therefore I wanted to create a series of posters where there were no boundaries and no rules. Except that I could only use Futura, Notre Dame and my own handwriting for the fonts. The posters portraits eleven retired football (soccer) legends which I find interesting to see in the same line-up."

Joli résultat.

HOMEWARD ROLLING SOLDIER

by anders t johansson

"The small football club Tångeds IF playing the last game, the 50 year old lease of the field went out, and the farmer would not make a new one. The family club, three generations of players put the club to sleep that day. The field is to day, just a field."

FOOTBALL AS NEVER BEFORE - Fußball wie noch nie (1970)

DOCUMENTARY

by hellmuth costard

"The sun shone on Old Trafford on 12th September 1970 as Manchester United beat Coventry 2:0 in a league match. It was not an important victory; that season Man Utd would only be also-rans in the race for the championship. But a record was preserved of the match that is probably unique in the history of film and television. Using eight 16mm cameras, Hellmuth Costard, one of the most important experimental filmmakers in German cinema of the 60s and 70s, followed every move over the 90 minutes of the man in the red jersey with the number 11 - traditionally associated with the conventional outside left, but here worn by the mercurial George Best. There are hardly any wide shots in this film, the cameras are trained on George Best throughout, and we follow the progress of the game only through his actions and reactions. We only see the ball when it comes near Best, and most of the time it is only Best in shot. The viewer can only guess what his happening on the pitch to make the 24 year old star from Belfast run, sprint, turn, pull up or stand still. We don’t even see the second goal, just Best’s lay-off that sets up the chance. Only when he congratulates Bobby Charlton do we realize who has scored. And it is only by observing the markings on the grass that we realize how little time Best spends in the vicinity of his own penalty area.

Football As Never Before is a film without cut away shots, which makes it the exact opposite of most television today. Even the crowd is only a blur in the background. What at first seems like an eccentric experiment turns in the course of the film into something much more valuable: never before has the spectator had such a clear view of a player’s progress through a match and his attempts to “read the game” - or such an insight into how carefully a player like Best paces himself. Particularly in the first half he spends far more time waiting for the ball than in possession of it.

At times he seems to be just standing around hands on hips, at others he strolls around the pitch like a man out for a walk - even the referee overtakes him en route to the opponents’ goal. And then, out of nowhere, he explodes into action, as he does for the first goal. With the passing of time, Football As Never Before seems like an exercise in nostalgia, and not only because George Best’s decline from the status of football icon has been so widely reported in the media.

Nowadays football is much faster and more athletic; any Premier League manager of today, faced with a player who runs as little as Best, would substitute him at half time. The demand for total commitment must have been less unremitting in those days. So there is hardly a nasty foul to be seen, no one rolling on the ground theatrically to get an opponent booked, and certainly no arguments with the referee. And the absence of perimeter fencing to keep the crowd off the pitch would be almost inconceivable now.”

THIRD HALF 

DOCUMENTARY

by igor tešić

"Football is fun, football is game, football is passion, football is love. All of that is in a football club with a witty name – Rekreativo from Banja Luka.

Unique in the world! Have players, don’t have board, don’t have coach, compete in the lowest active league because they can’t be relegated, and have members which in their showcases have trophies that would make even Real Madrid envy them. 

"People is that possible“, screamed deceased commentator Mladen Delić on Yugoslavia – Bulgaria (3:2) game in Split when Ljuba Radanović in last seconds led blues on big competition. 

The readers of this text are wondering themselves the same thing now. 

Well, it’s possible indeed. Football Club Rekreativo from Banja Luka in just one year of existence became one of the most famous clubs in Republic of Srpska thanks to enthusiasm of 20 football players. 

After decay of FC Sinđelić, which was closed due to financial – administrative problems they decided to register club on 4th August 2009 because of pure love to football, and from very own pockets which was named by physical (un)readiness, and not by better known spanish team from Huelva.

Idea was simple – to have fun on football pitch and hang out after games with box of beer, and soon on the so-called ‘Third Half’ were many more fans than on the game. Spontaneously ‘fell’ first fan song ‘Pivo, pivo, Rekreativo’ (Beer, beer, Rekreativo) which later became slogan… And as drinking large amounts of barley-hops juice is growing confidence fans named themselves ‘Gromada’ (Large Rock).

Players wanted to prevent fans in order to chant ‘Board out’, so they named management from their own ranks with same rights and duties like musketeers. So, all for one, one for all!

On one of third half was decided also that the stadium carries the name of greatest thinker of Ex Yugoslavia Dr Nele Karajlić and when frontmen from Zabranjeno Pušenje (No smoking) heard about this he was delighted. “I thought i would die laughing“ was the first reaction of Nenad Janković which was named honorary president.

Besides him fans and members of the club became celebrated serbian director Emir Kusturica and whole ‘No Smoking orchestra’. On their concerts around the world, you can always see members of the band in Rekreativo T-shirts.”

MOMENT OF THE MATCH

"The New Republic asked me to create a daily illustration during the World Cup 2014 in Brasil. Everyday I would pick one moment in a match and make a drawing from it. All together these drawings/panels create an ongoing comic, documenting the tournament in its beauty and tragedy. See the whole project with the captions here.”

COACH ZORAN ANS HIS AFRICAN TIGERS

by the bbc

"South Sudan became an independent state in July 2011, following almost 50 years of civil war. Although still steeped in the memories of countless victims of violence, the new nation is seeking to make a place on the international soccer stage by forming its first national team. The man called in for this task is the Serbian Zoran Djordjevic, a dynamic and hugely ambitious veteran coach. The film follows the team over its first year, from the hunt for new players to buying a sheep called Champion as its mascot and the first international games. Zoran’s aggressive and even dictatorial style soon leads to conflict with the chair of the soccer federation and several senior politicians. As the euphoria of independence subsides, the team finds itself hit by bitter infighting, malaria and a financial crisis that threatens the state itself. What follows is a darkly comic and original portrait of the birth of a nation."

HEXAFACE

by SLip

"Comme tous les quatre ans, la Coupe du Monde s’annonce. Comme à chaque édition, des nouveaux joueurs vont émerger et devenir à leur tour des idoles pour les enfants du monde entier. Jeunes et moins jeunes gardent en tête toute leur vie ces joueurs, qu’ils confirment ou pas leur exposition médiatique. Un Norman Whiteside restera une référence pour les gamins de 1982 même si sa carrière se limite pour beaucoup à ce titre de plus jeune joueur ayant participé à une coupe du monde.

Touché de plein fouet par la défaite de Séville, j’ai suivi attentivement les éditions suivantes et des joueurs sont restés comme des traces de cette époque même si année après année, leurs visages disparaissent peu à peu et deviennent flous. Afin de donner corps à ces souvenirs, j’ai conçu et réalisé un programme informatique permettant de déstructurer leurs visages pour être ensuite réinterprétés sous forme d’hexagones. L’algorithme prend alors une part prépondérante dans le processus créatif et ajoute une part aléatoire. La forme hexagonale choisie est là pour rappeler les ballons de l’époque et les traces qu’ils laissaient sur la porte du garage lorsque les matches se terminaient.”
