Mike Bassett: England Manager
Movie Quote Quiz

Mike: Ladies and gentlemen. England will be playing Four-Four-Fucking Two.

Interviewer: ...And what would your father say if he could see you now?
Mike: Oh, he'd probably quote Kipling or something, 'Walk with kings and all that' You see, he was like a father figure to me.
Interviewer: Well, obviously.

Kevin Tonkinson: Why aye! It's the England reserves.
Irish player: Shut your mouth, ya proddy bollocks.
Alan Massey: What's the accent for? You're a cockney, you mug.

Mike: Alright, Smallsy? Eh, you've got the best part of the dressing room, there - that's Charlton's lucky peg, that is.
Smallsy: Hey, hear that lads? I've got Bobby Charlton's lucky peg.
Mike: No - Jackie's.

Factual error: On the England shirt, you can see the badge where the three lions logo should be. But it is not there. It is the badge the England Cricket team wear on the sleeves on their shirts. [I'm assuming that the FA didn't give permission for the three lions logo to be used, but it is still a mistake].
