Product Description

Review

"'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. Blacker fuses two junior fiction obsessions - football and computers - into a compulsively readable story...Fantasy football as it should be for nine to twelve year-olds.' The Sunday Telegraph"

Book Description

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. Stanley’s greatest dream is about to become true - but it turns into a nightmare when he can’t get back into his own body again . . .

Format: Paperback
Stanley Peterson who is a young boy that is obsessed with football and supports a local team City, lives at home with his mum who is also obsessed with something which is computers because she is a scientist and has just created an invention which is a hairnet that uses will power to move things on screen and create computer generated things, more or less anything you want so long as you have enough will power for it(in Stanley's case a football player.)
Stanley creates a football player named Lazlo using a football game called Target Man on his mums PC, and using the hairnet creates a stud which comes out of the hairnet when Stanley takes the hairnet off his head, the computer then puts a message on the screen AFFIX THE STUD-when it makes contact you are Lazlo. Then stanley is on the team sheet for City Football Club for the last two games of the season. The first against Tottenham Hotspur (3-0 to City).The second match was against Liverpool (3-2 to City). But after the match Stanley (in Lazlo's body) goes to take the stud out from his boot but the stud is broken!!! Stanley can't take it out so it looks like Stan's stuck like that for the rest his life!!! But he does get back to Stanley's body but I'm not going to put it in my review because I want you to find out for yourself!!

My 10 year old son thinks that this book is a football sensation. He thought it was amazing. It made him want to go out and play football.

The transfer is about a boy called Stanley Peterson who is football mad. He supports his local team, City and is desperate for them to win the premier league. Stanley's mum is a computer scientist who has just created an electronic hairnet that can create computer generated things and move things on screen. One day Stanley creates a superb football striker called Lazlo who he can change into and who can save City. But everything goes wrong for Stanley when he can't get back into his own body...
I thought this book was quite exciting but was a bit disappointing at the end. I recommend it for people aged 12 and up.
