Feedback from buyers from UK:

Adrian Wright:
I really enjoyed it. I have been to Argentina and Chile a few times and its so difficult to explain to my friends here exactly what its like.
I particuarly liked the way that you showed the smaller Argentinian clubs after showing Boca and River, you really contrasted well the difference in the experiences of fans of lower and bigger clubs.
I also really admired the way you were able to present everything that was happening, being able to spot Maradona at the Bombonera or the kids sneaking into the ground at Tigre.
Excellent DVD.
