Scarlett Alice Johnson,
Unjustly expelled from Harvard when a stash of cocaine is found in his possession, Matt moves to London to live with his sister and her husband Steve. He is quickly introduced to Steve's chirpy, cock-sure younger brother Pete. Initially, Pete is reluctant to get acquainted with Matt and allow him to tread around the capital city with him because he may be seen by others as an 'outsider', but after a heavy drinking session with him and his mates he quickly changes his opinion of him. On the way back from a football match, Matt is viciously accosted by a gang of Birmingham City thugs, until Pete and his friends step in and save him. It is from here that Matt learns the truth about Pete and his friends- they are football hooligans, operating the GSE (Green Street Elite) 'firm.' Initially afraid of the violence, Matt soon ends up becoming as desensitized to it as his new found friends - but as events roll on, suspicion, shocking revelations and unsettled scores combine to a devastating ...Written by

At Matt's first match, the away fans team are named as being Birmingham City (who play in all blue shirts and white shorts), and their supporters are referred to as "northerners". However, the team shown playing West Ham United is actually Gillingham (blue and black stripes with black shorts), who ironically are one of the few teams in England south of West Ham. The match shown was played on Saturday 27th March 2004, and finished 2-1 in favour of the Hammers. See more »

I have just finished watching the film Green Street (UK Version). I had heard a lot about this film and when I watched it I really enjoyed it. Apart from the fact that it is slightly low budget the film is brilliant.
At first it seemed that violence was the only thing that happened in the football hooligans life. It's not all about the violence it's about morals and pride. An eye for an eye and so forth.
I found the film quite emotional but I loved the fact it depicts real life.
Stand and fight - too right. It's all about honour, and as I said earlier moral and pride
