Escape To Victory was on TV at Christmas. It usually is. It's basically a terrible film but it's full of Ipswich Town players from the early 1980s; like many Ipswich fans, I can recite entire chunks of the film's dialogue off by heart, a skill which comes in very handy when you're trying to clear your living room of drunk people at the end of a party.
