Fever Pitch

Factual error: On 26th May 1989, the Liverpool v Arsenal game kicked off at 8pm, which meant it would be 9:50 at the earliest before the end of the game. Sunset was at 8.59 that day (I checked!) so why is it still light when they're celebrating?

Factual error: In the celebrations at the end of the film one of the celebrating supporters is wearing a pair of Reebok Classics but the design being worn was not released until 1994.

Factual error: At the end with all the celebrations one of the Arsenal supporters is wearing the shorts from the 1993 red home kit. The scene was supposed to have been in 1989.

Paul Ashworth: Why is it that adults aren't supposed to go mad about anything? You gotta keep a lid on it. And if you don't then people are apparently entitled to say what they like. "You haven't grown up. You're a moron. Your conversation is trivial and boorish. You can't express your emotional needs. You can't relate to your children." And you die, lonely and miserable. But you know, what the hell, every cloud has a silver lining.

Sarah Hughes: So you don't get many Micky Thomas moments in real life?
Paul Ashworth: You don't a lot in football either.

Paul's Dad: Look, we don't have to go to Arsenal every time I'm in London, do we? I thought we'd be beyond that stage now.
Young Paul: We'll never be beyond that stage.
