I'm not gonna say there's anything here we haven't seen before. This is very much a classic Hoosiers style coach-centric sports story. Struggling team, new coach chosen, his selection controversial, his methods more so, eventually succeeds.
But it does that story really well. A nice, matter-of-fact, low key presentation that allows them to actually earn the payoffs. Punk rock opening and ending themes that I can pretty much already guarantee will be the best of the season. Actual native-English speakers for the opening bits in West Ham.
Very promising start.
