She is Gabriella Benson, a woman executive raised on football who has become the first ever female manager of a football team... and not without a fight. The struggle continues in the second series to build a winning team and somehow maintain both a cool head and her integrity. Standing in her way are a team owner running for M.P. while planning to sell the stadium out from under her; team players failing to be team players ; star players selling out for the big time or being brought down by foul play; a new trainer in, and an old trainer out to become a chief rival; drugs, bribery, back-door deals - and an unexpected twist that might leave her holding the baby. Gabriella Benson has her work cut out for her. But if she can only manage to steer her team where she wants them, they could yet find themselves in the First Division, and that s what makes her The Manageress.
