"'A potent source of fantasy for the soccer-mad.' The Daily Telegraph; 'What a goal!' The Times; "The Transfer is in a league of its own.

Stanley is a football-mad 11 year-old whose beloved team, City, faces relegation from the Premiership. His mother is a football-hating computer scientist. In desperation, Stan accesses her cybertelekinesis program to create Lazlo, a genius striker who can save City. By a risky process of mental and electronic energy, he turns himself into Lazlo - and gets himself on to the City team. Stanleys greatest dream is about to become true - but it turns into a nightmare when he cant get back into his own body again . . .
