There's only one Jimmy Grimble, featuring Noel Gallagher

MANCHESTER - What a great film, predictable but heart-felt and funny. If you've never seen it in the past 10 years, get it right now ($10=£6). It's about self-confidence.
I've seen it in English language but it's more Mancunian dialect, so it can be difficult to understand (I'm used to it with the Gallaghers, in fact I can't speak a correct English, lol).
There's also an unforgettable dialogue going: what could be better than Manchester United son? ...Man City!
At the beginning the protagonist wears an old Man City jersey from those years, I have it and Noel Gallagher too :).
At a certain point, when the boy goes to the Maine Road stadium (place of legendary Oasis gigs in 1996), you can see some houses which look exactly the same as Noel's house when he was a child (he wasn't born in Burnage as Liam, but in Longsight).
In the soundtrack there are also Stone Roses, Happy Mondays, The Charlatans, Echo and the Bunnymen ("Nothing lasts forever", I think I already heard this sentence :) and during the final scene it's Noel singing "Let forever be" by the Chemical Brothers.
Plot: Jimmy Grimble is a 15-year-old misfit living in Manchester, where nothing seems to go his way. Jimmy is constantly threatened by the school bully, "Gorgeous" Gordon; he is also not sure what to make of a lost-in-the-ozone biker who is dating Jimmy's mum; and he has a crush on one of his classmates (Samia Smith), who seems to like him, but his powers of speech invariably fail him when he tries to talk to her. Like most Mancunians, Jimmy loves football. He is a fervent supporter of Manchester City and attends home games with his mum's ex boyfriend. Jimmy also loves to play football, but while Eric (Robert Carlyle, also in "Trainspotting" and 2002 Oasis video "Little by little"), the coach of his school's team (a former City player in the film), thinks he has potential, "Gorgeous" is already a skilled player, and when Gordon's father informs the school he will make a large and much-needed donation if their team makes it to the Manchester Schools Cup final, it looks like Jimmy will be on the bench for a while. But when an old woman (homeless) gives Jimmy a pair of boots that once belonged to one of City's greatest players, his skills on the field begin to change.
