Dave is a professional footballer whose team are contenders to win the First Division title. He is introduced to beautiful Lisa Dell. Lisa sees potential in Dave beyond his interest in football. But she has another suitor - with a deadly secret.

London 1976. IRA bombings and death on the streets amid political upheaval. Wilson resigns as PM and Margaret Thatcher becomes Tory leader.

Dave’s team is close to winning the First Division title for the first time. And Dave is becoming even closer to Lisa. But life, like football, can be a funny old game. And things don’t always go exactly according to plan.

When Dave tries to find Lisa after an IRA bomb explodes in a pub she had planned to visit, he realises how little he actually knows about her. And a book of poems Lisa had given him reveals some worrying possibilities.

Their relationship fluctuates in tandem with the fortunes of Dave’s football team as the story reaches its denouement. It’s an eclectic mix of passion, politics, penalties and poetry, in pursuit of the ultimate prize
