Professional footballers might not realize it but they’re capable of entertaining their fans in more ways than one. Presented by Danny Dyer, propping up the bar, this DVD is full of football foul-ups, outrageous skills and sensational action from many of today’s star players and teams... from the England squad downwards...

Danny Dyer's Funniest Football Foul-Ups is the follow up to Danny Dyer's Football Foul-Ups, so already you know that there's at least one other DVD with better foul-ups on the market. And to be honest this shows.

The first collection of clips on this DVD are neither funny nor particularly bad foul-ups. They just appear to be rather unfortunate goals. I couldn't help wondering whether these truly were the funniest football foul-ups that the researchers could uncover. In fact, the only really amusing foul-ups are the keeper cock-ups selection and home goal clips, all the rest don't appear to be that funny or that embarrassing.

While Danny Dyer is an obvious choice to front this video - he's an actor and huge football fan, he's even the chairman of non league team Greenwich Borough - I couldn't help wondering why he spent most of his time trying to come across as a hard man. His cockiness and attitude just seemed hilariously false - maybe this was the 'funniest foul-up' the DVD cover was referring too. He spends too much time forcing out his words and squinting - what is that all about? And I just couldn't help but be reminded of The Fonejacker's Terry Tibbs every time he opened his mouth.

Designed as a stocking filler, I was a little taken aback that this 50 min DVD comes with a retail price of £20. If it was free with a daily paper I may go out of my way to pick it up, but I certainly wouldn't part with £20. To ape Dyer's own commentary... "Dyer, this is dyer, mate. What were you thinking of? The money, presumably."
