Book description
from author's post on kboards.com

Professional soccer in America is a weird thing. Single entity, imported superstars, minimum wage earning starters, scheming millionaires, relocations, stadium issues, and a commissioner nobody likes (even his own sister hates him). Reagan Fletcher has just inherited a team of lovable (and not so lovable) losers. He plans on taking them to the top but he doesn't really know the first thing about the league they play in. Meanwhile, millionaire Jeff Wilcox knows all about the league, but doesn't quite have the cash to buy in. He wants Fletcher's team and he's willing to do anything to get it.

Can Fletcher and his close circle of friends navigate a season in professional soccer to prove to the commissioner that he's got what it takes to run his own club?
Will Fletcher be outmaneuvered by Wilcox?
Will Fletcher succeed in convincing Red-State America that soccer is not a communist plot to destroy America?
