Trivia
A pivotal component of the film involved the Major marrying Shannon, a "Yank". In reality, Claire Forlani is actually British.

The actors playing the Green Street Hooligans had to work out with the production's trainer for four or five hours every day. The trainer, Pat E. Johnson, had most of the actors throwing up, he was working them so hard. A typical day would involve basic strength and fitness training for about two hours, followed by choreographing of the fight sequences. Rehearsals would take place in the afternoon, and then in the evening they would all go out drinking (which is probably why most of them were throwing up the next day). Elijah Wood was absented from most of this rigorous schedule to emphasize his outsider status.

Goofs
At Matt's first game when Bovver goes to shout at the rival team, the guards take Bovver away, when Bovver resists his hood falls down. The next scene features him still resisting but his hood is back up. As his arms were detained there was no way for him to put it back up.

When they are traveling to Manchester, they have to use the emergency stop to get off at Macclesfield. No trains travel direct from London to Manchester without stopping and many already stop at Macclesfield, where they jump off. Any trains not stopping in Macclesfield will stop at Stockport, 15 miles closer to Manchester.

In the last big fight, Matt hits a guy with a big black stick, its obvious that it's made from rubber.

Matt Buckner: Pete Dunham's life taught me there's a time to stand your ground, and his death taught me there's a time to walk away.

Q
Which football teams are represented by firms in this film?
A
In order:West Ham United - the GSE (Green Street Elite) are the protagonists of the film.Tottenham Hotspur - the opening scene in which the GSE exchange words with a gang on a train platform before fighting.Birmingham City - Matt's first football match where he is attacked by the fans but rescued by the GSE before getting into a brawl with the same firm.Manchester United - the scene in which the GSE are informed, while on a train to Manchester, that a large group are waiting for them at the station. Matt uses his American accent to trick them into letting them through before a fight erupts.Millwall - the main antagonists in the film. They are first introduced when Bovver travels to the cafe. Then when Pete sides with Matt after he is found out to be a journalist, Bovver once again goes to see them and alerts them to Steve's whereabouts. Meanwhile, Steve has just revealed to Matt that he was once the leader of the GSE and was involved in a fight where Terry's son was killed, thus explaining both why Terry is so aggressive and why Steve is so angry at Pete for getting Matt involved in the firm. And finally, they are involved in the film's climatic fight.
Q
What is a "Chelsea Grin"?
A
A method of permenantly scarring an enemy. Typically, a knife is used to cut the sides of the victim's mouth, and then further pain is caused so that he will scream out in pain, ripping his cheeks open. The scars left as a result give the effect of a constant smile, hense the name (although there are several different names for this attack). In the film, the Birmingham City fan attempts to achieve the same effect by ripping a credit card from Matt's mouth.
