I am sorry to say that the film has been taken off the list.
The film has been released as DVD.I might be able to insert a download and give some more information on the diverse dialogues.
This is a movie that I can highly recommend to anyone interested in football,history,prejudism,outcasts in terms of proletariat.
If the language is a barrier for anyone,I'll provide you with a summary
The young teacher Konrad Koch has been hired by the principle of the Martino-Katharineum, a highschool in Braunschweig.It is a position on probation,with Konrad Koch the first English teacher at this school.Koch has studied in England and upon his arrival is asked to take over his class immediately.
The first hour of teaching turns into a fiasco;the boys have been taught unrealistic truth about Britain.One of the boys(Hartmann)the son of a member of the support gremium of the project,boycotts the lesson and tries to mob Mr.Koch.
Koch orders the boys into the gymnasium,where he teaches the first applied lecture in English as well as the first rules in football.
The highest virtues at this school are obedience and discipline.The young teacher is interested in teaching the boys fair play and comradery.This leads to freedom of thought and independence from the teachers' demands,which as a result brings the boys and the teacher into trouble several times,and the teacher as well as one of the boys (proletariat) are dismissed.
The turn happens when Hartmann junior does the initial act of informing the Kaiserliche School department.
A delegation visits the school and attends a friendly match,Germany against England.
Commencing this date,the football becomes an official subject in German schools.
Nontheless,Bavaria had forbidden this type of sport until about 50 years later.
Here are two comments which I have copied from Jonathan's post.Comment by Heidi Banerjee yesterday Delete Comment
Please just open the link.The film starts by itself.I have tried to insert it here but it was rejected.The movie language is English to a good part,and since this teacher is introducing the boys to their first foreign language,it is very easy to follow the action except for a few sequences.The main actors are doing an excellent job which enables you to follow the process.I have added a summary at the post,and the built up is easy to follow even if you don't understand each word.
At the beginning,the teacher asks the boys what they know about England.Hartmann asnswers that the Brits are barbarians who try to expand their imperialism.
To the teacher's question what was meant by barbarian,one boy answers:The brits eat raw meat with peppermint sauce.Anothe boy says:The Brits take away the negroes from averyone else.The third boy answers:Brits are incestious.The fourth boy explains:The Brits have a woman Kaiser.(Highest position of a king)
The whole struggle ends in agreement on football as being a vital part and compulsery in school sport.
Gymnasium in German:High school up to grade 13
Kosher could you try to convert the link into an embedding code?I have tried to do this earlier today but as I have said before,it was not accepted by Our Salon.

The conversation between Koch and Hartmann senior deals with Koch's father as dead hero and Koch as quasi deserteur because he did not serve,instead went to England to study.
Hartmann points out that on German schools obedience and discipline are the highest virtues and that young Koch has a high responsibility in regard to the boys' upbringing.(Untertertia:4 years publ school and 4 years high school thus grade 8.)
Koch replies that his aim is to lead the boys to independence in decision making.
Hartmann:"Your job is an experiment.Don't bite the hand that feeds you."
