Storyline

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.

Satire at its vintage best
19 April 2003 | by (Mars) – See all my reviews

City is a small local football club with a loyal following but limited performance.

After the club coach is sacked for not being able to cut the mustard, club chairman Sir Bob Luckton (Timothy West) looks for a suitable man to fill the position.

Enter Ted Whitehead (James Bolam) a man who fulfills all the criteria for the job, loyal, committed and, above all, cheap.

Years past, Ted scored the goal that made City's fortune clinching the club promotion to the next division, now Ted has to juggle player egos and limited talent to make sure City doesn't get relegated back to the division below -all without the aid of a net...

Ted embarks on his crusade to clean up the club and reinstate the old fashioned values of the days of his own career. But while Ted is busy trying to save the club from relegation, the Inland Revenue step in to conduct a few investigations of their own in the form of tough investigator Sylvia Tench (Anastasia Hille) and they discover a few more skeletons in the cupboards than certain people -Sir Bob among them- would like them to find...

Amidst the lies, corruption, promotion deals, bad haircuts and overinflated egos, Ted Whitehead is left sighing in nostalgia wondering whatever happened to the game he loved so much. Is it really about eleven men against eleven anymore?
