A young British Asian, Mo is a fast-rising police officer who goes under cover infiltrating Shadwell’s resurgent hooligan element, who are fired up by Shadwells’s takeover by a Russian oligarch and their unlikely adventure into European competition. Mo quickly becomes embroiled in the local schism between the BNP and EDL and plans to build a new mosque in the shadow of the Shadwell ground creates an explosive environment in which football and political violence form a perfect storm of social unrest. In the midst of this, Mo is faced with the essential existential question of of who he really is and where he really belongs. It’s 20 years on and clever Trevor is now chief super, but what happens to the rest of the gang?
