The Class Of 92 tells the story of the six Manchester United players: Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, David Beckham, Nicky Butt and Gary and Phil Neville. Stretching over the seven year period from winning the FA Youth Cup in 1992 to the Champions League victory of 1999.
As well as featuring interviews with all of the players themselves, the documentary includes comments from people outside of the football industry as well, placing the sport into a cultural context. Danny Boyle, Tony Blair and others help to make the appeal of the documentary stretch outside of the sport itself. If anything, it is this branching out of talking about football games themselves that makes the documentary stand out. Insights into how the sport became as big as it is today, how each player deals with or embraces the position that they are in and what football means to them makes the iconic players relatable and brings them down to a more human level.
There is unavoidably a Hollywood element to The Class of 92, with it being about the six individuals that managed to make it through the tough to reach the pinnacle of football, avoiding the fact that so many other aspiring footballers from the same era did not have the same success. It’s still an interesting story, and successfully manages to express the passion and commitment that these individuals have to their sport, something which is easily applicable to the youth of today and their aspirations.
