Eddie Bloom is a hapless, middle-aged executive working at an unfashionable professional football club located in a run-down northern mill town. Supported by a motley collection of friends and colleagues, he aspires to success and elevation both in his job and his equally chaotic social life.
The sale of the club triggers a series of unfortunate events.
The new owner is revealed as the celebrated though shady international business mogul Samson McCloud. Unexpectedly, Eddie is propelled into the harsh, unforgiving world of corporate leadership to a level of responsibility way beyond even his most optimistic dreams.
He becomes involved with a group of energetic, thrusting young City types under the direction of the lovely but dangerous Verity Le Fey whose motives and loyalties are uncertain. Her actions threaten to destroy the very character and values of the club Eddie loves.
Meanwhile, the new owner’s sinister henchmen, the club’s powerful team manager and the team’s star player seize the opportunity to promote their own interests and to capitalise on Eddie’s weakness and inexperience.
Can Eddie survive the turmoil and find a way to save both his club and his career from extinction?
