A player is poisoned during a football match and a detective investigates.
A good little mystery with a great star performance from the lead actor. The subject of football is only on the periphery of the mystery itself so it's easy to follow even if you're not a huge fan of the sport (or Arsenal Football Club) and fancy watching something rather antiquated.
