Summer is at an end in the 20 kingdoms and Sir Fergie, King of the House Manc, originally from a terrible northern land beyond the Wall and famous for his devastating use of his favourite torture weapon, the Hairdryer, is finally ailing. He must seek a successor before he dies. He has ruled House Manc for longer than anyone can remember, as far back as the mythical time known as 'the 80s', before even Sky Sports was invented.

Step forward trusty lieutenant, Lord Moyes of Evertonia, annointed by Sir Fergie as the 'Chosen One'. This enrages southern usurper, Mourinho, the self-styled 'Special One', who howls from dawn till dusk, vowing eternal revenge, although he later denies this in the media. Will Lord Moyes manage to retain unity amongst the feared but somewhat over-the-hill Knights of Manc? Can he master the black arts Sir Fergie was so proficient in, known to the initiated as 'mind games'? Will he survive the Throne of Games or will he, like many others before him, lose his head? From Somerset Maugham Award-winner Rodge Glass, author of the acclaimed, hilarious football satire Bring Me the Head of Ryan Giggs, comes an extraordinary literary and televisual pastiche.

Combining the worst excesses of modern football and the easy target that is world-wide literary and TV smash hit, Game of Thrones, Throne of Games will prove to be the perfect gift for football fans and box set afficionados alike.
