My son loved it. He is a huge soccer fan and loved watching all the history of the sport. Worthwhile purchase

What else can you say about classic football.
You can easily sit and watch every single DVD in a row = )

9 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Django on Oct. 31 2003
Less a history of soccer than the title would suggest, this documentary on DVD is more a chronologically-minded discussion of football topics and polemics rather than pure history, and one that manages to say very little over the course of seven discs. Jarringly repetitive, it will, for instance mention a topic or event on several episodes, each time going a different level of depth into the topic, leading to a feeling of deja-vu for the viewer. I kept wishing this were done by Ken Burns. Then we'd get a feel for the personalities of the sport, something which this cold, distant HOS series fails to do, as well as good highlights, another thing HOS gives in surprisingly little amounts.
Along with an annoyingly Anglo-centric view of the game (Britain seems to be brought up one way or another in every episode, even for the most tangential of references), there is also a strange preoccupation with Indian football. India gets two whole segments in this series, over twenty minutes of airtime for a nation that isn't anywhere close to challenging anyone for anything in world football.
The extras amount to nothing but unnarrated, oftentimes confusing footage collected under a specific heading, but otherwise viewable elsewhere in the series.
Also, if a team didn't reach a major final, they aren't talked about. There is no mention of the Bulgarians at USA 94.
No mention of Steaua Bucharest's unlikely penalty shootout win over Barcelona in 86. Many other quality events like this are missing. Instead the series focuses on topics that are often boring, such as devoting an entire hour to the bureaucratic history of FIFA. Yawn.
Overall, somewhat of a disappointment. Not worth the price.

This is an excellent box set to have in any genre. The documentary format has it's limits but the access and footage shown is something the vast majority of us will never be able to see anywhere else.
To hear the inside stories and political inflections done by the game's greatest players is heartwarming and at the same time endearing; this underlies our commanility as humans.
a 7- disc box set - this feels almost as though it's for the novice fan, but if you're like me, you simply want to have a digital copy of the greatest moments to happen in the greatest sport.
the only bad thing i can say about this is that there is not nearly enough focus on the truly great football nations in the world---instead focusing too much on the American, african and british perspective(not to mention India?!?!?!?)
the price was right - but if you want to see real football
JUST WATCH SOME SOUTH AMERICAN SOCCER
tHE REST ARE ONLY FIGHTING AND CLAWING THEIR WAY TO LEGITIMACY
TERENCE STAMP DOES A GREAT JOB IN NARRATION - CAN'T ASK FOR BETTER

By "uptown186" on Feb. 9 2004
This set is loaded with excellent documentry.
Each disc has two volumes, and extras.
Very well edited...
Roots of how football/soccer began...
History of FIFA, UEFA, and club history, Real Madrid, Arsenal, Manchester United, Celtic, Milan, etc...
Tons of game action, World Cup and other competitions.
Interviews of Pele, Maradona, George Best, Malidini, Zindane, Ronaldo, Paolo Rossi just to name a few.
There is no other soccer documentry that comes close.

It is very good and gives you a good history of the sport. Soccer is the best sport in the world. Believe it or not. Ronaldo is the best soccer player alive and que Viva Las CHIVAS.
