Take a closer look at Singapore's seemingly sanitized soccer scene-not is all as it seems llustrious Australian football coach David O'Connor has arrived in Singapore to very little fanfare. His love for the game and desire to develop the tiny country's fledgling professional league in a big way has seen him accepting terms he's less than thrilled about-that is, if his contract even materializes.He faces the daunting task of rebuilding a team whose spirit and confidence is in shatters. He has to bridge cultural divides and finds a way to inspire his team to believe in him, the game, and importantly, themselves and each other. And slowly but surely Gombak United begins to ascend from the bottom of the league table, soon recognized as a force to be reckoned with. But at the height of his success, David is suddenly dropped from the team, marking the start of his downward spiral into drink and womanizing. His journey is fraught with difficulties, leaving him with broken ventures and financial troubles.
