The remarkable true story of a soccer team from a small isolated Italian city that finds itself playing in Italy''s second highest league. The story is about much more than soccer, as the town, it''s odd characters and menacing boss become almost as important as the games. Not just for soccer fans, but certainly a book any true soccer fan would love.
