Crossing the Line is a behind the scenes account of a fictional Fulham FC season, set against the backdrop of a London mayoral election - Fever Pitch meets House of Cards - as the worlds of football and politics collide.
It's a dramatic season for Fulham FC who are in the Championship and pushing to get promoted back to the Premier League. An ambitious but flawed manager, Marko Maric, has been appointed to get the best out of a fractious group of players. Vital to the team is its star striker, Texan Zac Miller.
Meanwhile, their local rivals the Diamond Blues are aiming for the unprecedented quadruple. Their owner wants to ruin Fulham, partly because he covets its enviable riverside ground, ripe for lucrative development.
But can two fans caught up in a Wagatha Christie quest, alter the course of events?

Caught in Possession is the sequel to Crossing the Line. It's the next season and Fulham are battling to stay in the Premier League whilst going all out for Europa revenge. The edge of the seat match action, with the footballing highs and lows that most supporters will relate to, is accompanied by plenty of off-pitch drama. The Club is redeveloping the Putney End at Craven Cottage - but any delays and it's full time for Fulham. The discovery of a rare Roman bracelet on the construction site is a disaster.
The players find their performances as well as their private lives under the spotlight as they deal with the pressures involved in elite sport; one struggles with his mental health, another's private life is in the public eye. Meanwhile, their demanding manager, Marko Maric, is trying to out-run his chequered past and the owner of the Club's local rival, the Diamond Blues, is plotting Fulham's downfall. Partly written from the humourous perspective of two die-hard fans, Caught in Possession is full of adventure, touching on the age-old themes of rivalry, greed and redemption.
