Forty. Receding pate. Loose teeth. Failing marriage. Delinquent, uncaring son. Psycho boss parachuted in to cut the big earners.
A few lost marbles…
It wasn’t always like this. He used to be a Face. A Player. A Terrace Celebrity. Now he’s just another faceless nobody on the brink of despair in a world he no longer recognises.

Especially when there’s an intriguing proposition on the table. One he may find difficult to refuse.

Forty-something football hooligans determined to go straight.

Will they succeed in going straight? Can they resist the carnage planned for the last match of the season against Coventry?
