Despite a nightmare of a season so far, loyal fans Wigsy and Cliff join the thousands of adoring supporters each Saturday in the terraces to sing and cheer their boys to victory. But today is different. Today is important. Win: they stay up. Lose: they go down. In the dying moments of the match, unbelievable elation as their team score is immediately followed by unbelievable deflation as the Ref disallows the goal. This, compounded by a goal at the other end, sends the losing supporters into a frenzy; and determined to right this injustice, Wigsy, with a more reluctant Cliff in tow, decides to do the only decent thing...and kidnap the referee.
