Seth, Beefy and Angelo and their awkward but determined team of footballing misfits are aiming for glory in their first real tournament. But how do you fit an 12 players into a 5-a-side team? Seth makes some dodgy decisions that see him tackling not only the dreaded coach, Mr Steele, but his friends as well. Can the Freaks team spirit carry them through, or will Seth’s meddling mess up their dreams before they get the chance? The brilliantly funny follow-up to Freaks United.
