About a Premiere football club facing crisis, with a chairman terrified that lucrative financial deals and perks will be discovered by the tax inspector investigating the club's affairs, and players who are either accepting "bungs" or taking drugs. Ex-player and upholder of traditional values Ted Whitehead is brought in as caretaker manager, who sees his players gradually whittled down through arrest or bad behavior. At the crucial match which could decide on relegation he has to play a team of inexperienced youngsters and is put into a moral quandary when he realizes that the club chairman has fixed the match by bribing the referee and the opposing team's goalkeeper.
