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.

I read this book independently. I had read a book from this series before so I was looking forward to reading this one, and I love football. It was very funny, lots going on to keep you gripped. There were bits in the book I could relate to. Boys and girls will like this book, especially if they are football fans.

I love football so this was the book for me.  It was very fun with lots of drama and exciting events. My favourite part was the final where both Freaks teams played against each other with great skills and amazing strikes not caring what the score was. I look forward to reading other Freaks books.

I thought this book was really funny. I'd like to read the first book too. The Freaks are really funny, especially Alan Block. It made me think about what I'm like when I play football and how important it is to have fun with your friends. I hope there will be more Freaks books.

I think offside is an amazing book. It is about a boy called Seth who plays for a team at his school called freaks United. He decides to do a five-a-side with his team. But how is he supposed to do that with eleven players? This is a really fun book - perfect for anyone who loves football!
