What a humiliation.

A lot of unhappiness

around the Bernabu tonight,

a lot of it directed at Gavin Harris.

Came out as a hero,

he's being called a donkey tonight.

Ronaldinho seals it

with a brilliant third.

Boy, do they need

some inspiration from somewhere.

And now it's Munez. And we

haven't seen too much of him today.

Trying a give-and-go here

with Alan Shearer.

What a great run by Munez!


Newcastle's newest and youngest player

gives the fans a brand-new song to sing.

He's got support to his right.

Stephen Carr.

A great header!

And a goal!

It's a dream start for Newcastle!

- OK.

- What about the rose petals?

About bloody time. Can we have

the red rose petals, but in that...?

- Gotta get back to work.

- Hey, babe.

- OK. Hello.

- Hey.

Just no fuss.

I've got to go,

but I will see you Tuesday.

- All right. Bye.

- Bye-bye.

San, it's ten of 5.00. The meeting

with the wedding planner was at 4.00.

Sorry, babe. I just...

I lost track of time.

- We do this together.

- What do I know about flowers?

As long as you show up,

I'll be happy.

You Latin boys are so cheeky.

Do you know that?

- Are you gonna show up?

- I might, if you're lucky.

Oh, no. Go and have a shower. You stink.

It's time for a toast, I think.

To your new home, may all your ups

and downs be in the bedroom.


You might want to be careful, Santi.

Look where it got me!

You're lucky I let you get near me.

- How about the extra hot vindaloo?

- Sounds good.

Have consideration.

I'm the one who has to sleep with him.

It sounds good.

- Hello, stranger.

- Hello.

What happened?

Did you lose me number?

- Good timing. We're ordering.

- Can I have a word?

- Yeah, sure.

- In private?

Excuse us.

Oh, my God.

I've been on the phone for hours.

Are they serious?

They want to meet us.

- Shtoom, though, OK?

- Yeah.

You've got two more years

with Newcastle.

The fans'll go mad.

You're the best player.

It's just a meeting.

So when are they coming to meet us?

They're not.

I'm meeting them in Japan.

The biggest football club on the planet.

Nine times European champions.

Twenty-nine Spanish League titles.

Twelve Spanish Cups.

One Super Cup.

They come to Tokyo every summer,

the whole squad.

Beckham, Ral,

Ronaldo, Roberto Carlos,

Zidane, Harris, Munez.

Won't be long, don't worry.

Thank you for coming.

- Santi, how are you?

- Fine thank you.

Welcome to this

legendary football club.

I wanted to introduce you

to our coach.

- Van der Merwe.

- Pleased to meet you.

- Sorry you had to come so fast.

- That's fine.

We want Santiago.

We can make this work.

We have to act quickly. The transfer

window closes tomorrow at midnight.

- I know. Let's vamoose.

- OK. Come on.

Just don't think about the money.

You're gonna hate Madrid.

They all speak bloody Spanish.

- How's it going?

- Good.

- We haven't said yes yet.

- What, are you mad?

With ten percent you have your chest

waxed and highlights. You're sorted.

It's a big decision.

Roz and I got this new house.

You came halfway around

the world for karaoke?

No one says no to Real Madrid,

you nutter.

I don't wanna be on the bench like Owen.

He's one of the best. I'd go crazy.

- It's Dutch.

- Gentlemen.

Herr Van der Merwe.

Can I get you a drink?

Thank you. You're not

giving any career advice, are you?

He's pretending

he's got a decision to make.

I have some advice.

First, you listen to your heart.

Then you listen to your head.

Then your wife will

tell you what to do.

You're OK, Mr lves.

Sorry, doctor.

No comment!

Don't leave, Santi! Don't leave!

[Woman on TV] Michael Owen

acknowledges the Newcastle fans

as they welcome him

to St James's Park.

The last-minute exchange deal

with Real Madrid

will see Santiago Munez move

to Real Madrid on a two-year contract.

- Excuse me. You know where Roz is?

- Down to the left.

Thank you.

There's that git,

upsetting my lovely Rosalind.

You're in the bad books now.

- Hey, you save your breath, Mr lves.

- Baby.

- I don't want to talk to you.

- I tried to call.

- You should've asked for more time.

- I tried. Hey, listen.

I love you. I love you and I want

to marry you. None of that changes.

Now, before we have kids

and responsibilities, we can...

- Stop playing with the bed.

- I'm sorry.

We can go places, do things.

Just you and me.

I'm not sure I want to live in Spain.

I mean...

- I love Newcastle.

- I love it too. It's been good to me.

If I hadn't come I wouldn't have found

the most important thing in my life:

- You.

- He's got a point there.

Yeah, and what about our wedding and

our new house and my job? I love my job.

- I know, but...

- I've got exams at Easter.

You can see me on your days off,

how's that? I'll fly back when I can.

Baby, I can't walk away

from this chance.

This is my life,

and I want you there... with me.

- I can't even speak Spanish.

- I'll teach you.

I'm not eating paella.

Hey, hey, hey. Come here.

Will you do us a favour?

When you see that Gavin Harris,

tell him he's shite.

- I love you.

- I love you.

A very good day to all of you

and thank you for coming

to this very important presentation

of one of the greatest players

in the world

Good luck in this team.

Best wishes

and we place our hopes in you.

Many thanks.

Over ten thousand fans turned up

to welcome Real's latest signing...

Jefferies co-wrote the screenplay for the first Goal! with contributions from veteran British writers Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais. The story of a young illegal immigrant, rising from poverty to become one of the world's greatest players was released by Disney and has been shown in 38 countries worldwide. Goal! grossed $27.6m at the box office. The $50m deal that was struck between the producers and Adidas was the biggest ever between a corporate brand and a film production.Jefferies was one of the writers on the second part of the trilogy, Goal! 2: Living the Dream.... and co-wrote the third part Goal! 3: Taking on the World with Piers Ashworth. In September 2004 Jefferies, together with Stuart Ford, fronted a bid backed by the Kraft family, to purchase Liverpool Football Club. The bid would have valued the club at approximately £200m. In 2005 the club was subsequently purchased in a deal by Tom Hicks and George Gillett which valued the club at £218.9m. In October 2010, as part of a fans' campaign against the ownership, Jefferies conceived and directed a short film entitled 'Dear Mr Hicks' which was released virally via YouTube. The Independent newspaper praised the video saying: "True to the city's capacity to create something out of adversity, a wonderfully inventive viral film, Dear Mr Hicks, has been published online to make it clear where he ought to go. The fans' view can be summarised thus: away, and soon".In 2011 Jefferies re-launched Milkshake Films. more…
