How does the removal of hereditary peerages relate to Nicky Butt being responsible for burning Peter Schmeichel’s penis? The Class of ‘92 is at its worst when trying to provide an answer.

It’s at its best when the brothers Turner are content to let a simpler story play out – of six friends growing up – through anecdotes about Paul Scholes lobbing balls at teammates who nipped off for a piss while training, or Phil Neville practicing his stepovers.

Even after two decades there’s a charming camaraderie on display; it’s just unfortunate that wasn’t deemed sufficient for the entire runtime.

An easy, enjoyable ninety minutes that features Eric Cantona taking time out from Kronenbourg adverts to unbutton his shirt halfway and muse on Becks et al., providing the “perfect script”. Not quite, but so what?
