The Football Factory

Continuity mistake: Bill and Albert are having a drink and smoke by the window when it is raining. The first shot shows the rain thrashing down on the window and dripping off it. But it cuts to a different shot. It is still raining, but there isn't a drip coming off the window.

Revealing mistake: When the firm takes more or less a full coach load to Liverpool, one shot from a bridge shows the coach with only 1 visible passenger and what looks like a different driver.

Factual error: The main plot of the film takes place between the draw for, and playing of, the FA Cup Third Round tie between Millwall and Chelsea. In reality the Third Round is drawn in early December and played in early January, however the film makes no reference to this time of year, ie. no signs of Christmas, in fact much of it appears to take place during summer time.

Tommy Johnson: The next best thing to violence is sex. And seeing as there's nearly 500,000 single women in London, I must be in with half a chance. Especially as I'd fuck anything that's breathing.

Tommy Johnson: What else are you gonna do on a Saturday? Sit in your fuckin' armchair wankin' off to Pop Idols? Then try and avoid your wife's gaze as you struggle to come to terms with your sexless marriage? Then go and spunk your wages on kebabs, fruit machines and brasses? Fuck that for a laugh! I know what I'd rather do. Tottenham away, love it.

Tommy Johnson: Jesus! I was expecting a bowl of cornflakes and a quick wank.
