Video of the Week: Sky Sports News on Dream Team

As Sky One prepared to broadcast the final episodes of Dream Team, this was a nice little report on the series as a whole by Sky Sports News. Includes mention of the Didier Baptiste affair, and clips of the cameos from Redknapp, Atkinson and Curbishley.

Dream Team was pretty schlocky and awful at times, but it’s still something of a shame it’s not around any more. Dating almost entirely from an era in which Roy of the Rovers didn’t exist, it was perhaps its closest spiritual successor in terms of the mixture of on-pitch stories (which weren’t merely a backdrop, but which actually mattered) and ridiculous soap opera antics – and Harchester United are almost certainly the only fictional football team to have had a cultural impact close to that of Melchester Rovers.
