Product Description

The Beautiful Game has a beautiful new manager and she s about to change the face of football. In 1989, a TV drama series hit the screens that rocked the world of football. Cherie Lunghi stars as Gabriella Benson, a woman executive raised on the game by an often absent father. When her mother dies, he reaches out to her by cutting a deal with the faltering Blackburn Rovers to have her replace their current corrupt manager, making her the first ever female manager of a football team. Rampant sexism, political incorrectness, corruption, drugs, fistfights and foul play. Nudity in the locker room is the least of Gabriella s worries as she comes up against fierce resistance from the team and their trainer up-front, and the constant risk of Boardroom backstabbing from behind. But with astute business skills and a keen eye for the game she has loved all her life, Gabriella Benson is about to show her team and the world that she s got what it takes to be THE MANAGERESS.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not just a football story 27 July 2011

This is a wonderful (but short) series that I first saw in the early 90s. Cheri Lunghi is great as the new manageress of a second division club. It is also a good reflection of prejudice on and off the pitch. The transfer quality could have been a bit better, but nonetheless the stories are good and the characters are well-developed.
