When it comes to footballing wisdom, Mike's in a league of his own! Following his moderate success as England boss, Mike Bassett wants one last chance of the big time after an otherwise undistinguished managerial career. He's offered a job at Wirral County, a team his dad once played for, and believes he can resurrect the side, currently languishing as the bottom of their league. Bassett has fallen on hard times since reaching the latter stages of the World Cup. He takes the post as the struggling Ellesmere Port-based side, much to the annoyance of Karine. Steve Edge, who will be familiar to viewers thanks to Peter Kay's Phoenix Nights, joins the cast as Bassett's coaching partner Doddsy.
