This honest and relatable docuseries shows just why sports are so beneficial in the lives of young people. Save Our Squad with David Beckham benefits from centering the London soccer narrative around the lives of the young boys from the Westward Boys team, while superstar David Beckham's journey from player to coach takes a backseat. Parents won't mind sitting down to watch this with their tweens or teens, as viewers learn about the players from their own perspectives and those of their coaches and parents.

The only negative criticism surrounds the title: Save Our Squad and the imagery of a celebrated White man coming in to help a diverse team led by two Black men may trigger thoughts of White savior complex. Support Our Squad or Strengthen Our Squad may have been better title choices.
