Corrected entry: In the shot when the league table for the qualifying group is flashed up on the screen, before England's final group game, the table can't be right, since the total number of defeats in the table does not equal the total number of wins.
Corrected entry: After winning the FA Cup, Norwich City parade through the town with it. However, the city centre used is not Norwich - it is St Albans.
Corrected entry: When Mike Bassett is playing in goal, he tries to kick the ball away after a backpass but misses it. In those days (seventies or even eighties) the keeper would have just picked the ball up. The no back-pass rule didn't come into play until 1992.
Corrected entry: When Mike is talking about Gary Wackett, he says he's started 26 games, but has only finished five. When Martin Bashir is interviewing the player, he asks him why he's been sent off 25 times. Last I saw, 26-5=21.
Corrected entry: Mike is seen boarding a GNER train to get from Norwich to London. However GNER runs between London and Edinburgh, going no where near Norwich.
Corrected entry: England's centre back Gary Wackett was sent off against Slovenia and would have got an automatic two match ban. Instead he played in the very next game against Egypt.
