New boy Shane Logan has a temper, but he's also a talented goalie. When Peter and his friends invite Shane to join their football team, he delivers a star performance in the first match. But Shane's not the only one who makes an impression.

Hanging over him like a shadow is his dad, Mick, who yells orders and insults from the sidelines. What is Mick's problem? And why does Shane seem afraid of him? The more Peter gets to know Shane, the more he worries that something is wrong - and that Shane's not as tough as he seems. A thought-provoking football story accompanied by fascinating facts about famous goalies and the history of goalkeeping from reluctant-reader favourite Alan Gibbons.
