Described as one of the greatest stories (n)ever told in football this sumptuously nostalgic film transports the viewer back to possibly the most improbable success story ever in the beautiful game. It'll certainly never be repeated, and how lucky we are that this sensational account has been committed to celluloid for ever more. Watched it three times already!!!
The extraordinary story and fairytale rise of Swansea City under John Toshack. Premise - Tosh joined the Swans at the bottom of the 4th Division in 1978, and by spring 1982 they were top of the 1st Division.

More than a football film, a human interest underdog story of triumph over adversity
A wonderful trip down Memory Lane
I cannot recommend this film enough for all football fans. It is informative and full of wonderful interviews with key players and managers from that time. It also makes you laugh out loud as players recollect fun times. Being a lifelong fan who never missed a match during Tosh's time in charge it brought back magical memories. Don't miss it.
Brilliant viewing for any football fan
Great video of the rise of Swansea City under the guidance of John Toshack, featuring many past players and supporters. Real nostalgic viewing that made me both laugh and cry. Took family member to premiere who thought it was best thing he's ever seen (obviously saw it for real back in the day). Fantastically put together by a life long supporter on a tight budget. Superb viewing. 10/10.
Nice one...Thanks Freeman, keep up the good work...cheers...
