Previously on DreamTeam:
'And Harchester United win the play off final!!'
'I'm sorry Jodie'
(Don drives his car into the players’ coach)
And now back to Dream Team
Sully:(sad) No this cant be happening! It’s just not right
Ryan: I know Sull it’s just terrible. You saw the whole thing and now we are the only survivors for now.
(Enter Linda Block)
Linda: My first night out of prison and this happens it's just terrible I just hope they survive.
Doctor: We have some good news and some bad news to tell you. We have managed to save another three people…
Ryan: (butting in) who are?
Doctor: I was just getting to that. Hammond, Pressley and Alexander have all been saved.
Sully: so what’s the bad news then?
Doctor: the bad news is that there is not much hope for the others sorry.
Linda: (talking to Sully) where’s Fletcher? Did he play?
Sully: I don’t know. He got sent to jail for poisoning Gina. He was supposed to have been bailed out but no
one has heard from him since.
Linda: I hope he’s ok. You don’t think he’s done a runner now do you?
Ryan: I wouldn’t put it past him to do something like that.
Linda: how can you say something like that? You are trying to crack a joke at a time like this? How dare you! (Goes to
(End of part one)
(Back at the club)
Eli: (talking to himself whilst watching reports from the hospital on TV) this club has been nothing but trouble for me
since day one. Its time for me to sell the club. Goodbye Harchester!
(A few months later)
Linda: (reading a letter) we would like to offer you a contract with Harchester United football club for the position
of Chief Executive. (Looking up) what the? Looks like I’m going to have to go to the club and see what’s
happening. How dare they send me a letter out of the blue offering me a contract for something I don’t want.
(At the club)
Amy: welcome to Harchester United football club. Are you Linda?
Amy: we’ve been expecting you. Please follow me.
Linda: excuse me but I think you’ve made a bit of a mistake. I came here to get some answers not to be dragged
into a job.
(Enter Felix Hahn)
Felix: ah the famous Linda Block. Please, lets have a little chat. (Showing her to the boardroom). When I received a letter
through my door the other week I was wondering why I was chosen to fill the position of manager of this famous club. I did
not want to accept the job but then I read that the famous Linda Block was going to be the chief executive I had a sudden
change of heart.
Linda: well that’s all flattering really, but I have not accepted the job yet.
Felix: please accept. You belong here.
Linda: (interrupting) this club has been nothing but trouble for me. I just don’t want the hassle anymore.
Felix: you shouldn’t dwell in the past. Please consider the offer.
Linda: the money is tempting but I just don’t think I can take the strain of being chief executive again. I
have a son to take care of and if I accept I will probably hardly see him.
Felix: please. I’m begging you now. Think of it as a new start.
Linda: fine. I guess I can try it out. But if I get to the point where I cant ever see my son then I will quit.
Felix: welcome back to where you truly belong!
(End of part two)
(On the pitch)
Linda: so how exactly did you get the job of manager?
Felix: well like I said before, I simply got a letter through the post, saw that you were chief executive and saw that
I have £80 million to spend to rebuild a football club from the ground up. What a challenge! And I was up for it.
Linda: wow! Just like that! Accepting a job where you don’t know who the owners are cool! I guess I have done
the same now! So what is you plan to rebuild the squad?
Felix: follow me and I’ll show you
(Back in the boardroom, Felix shows a tape of a football game to Linda)
Linda: wow! Those two strikers are great! But who are they?
Felix: they are the Rose brothers
Linda: ah yes I know now Casper and Eugene Rose. But I heard that they hate each other.
Felix: well I plan to sign them. And you are going to help me do so.
Linda: that’s crazy. They wont play with each other.
Felix: we’ll sign them separately so they will never know about it until training.
Linda: good luck!
(A few days later)
(Enter Chloe and Eugene)
Chloe: we are here to see Mrs. Block and a Mr. Hahn
Amy: you must be the new signing. Please come right this way.
(After an hour of going through the terms)
Eugene: I’m very happy with the deal standard! Yo Chloe give me the pen!
Chloe: wait a minute don’t sign anything yet
Felix: why not? He’s happy
Chloe: just don’t sign Eugene.
(Chloe taking Eugene into the boardroom)
Chloe: they are signing your brother
Eugene: WHAT???? (Storming back into the meeting room) LINDA HOW DARE YOU! I AINT SIGNING NO WAY
Linda: please we need you.
Eugene: NOT WHEN YOU ARE SIGNING MY BROTHER
Casper: long time no see bro!
Eugene: IM GONNA KILL YOU
Felix: break it up you two now!
Eugene: I AINT NEVER GONNA SIGN FOR HARCHESTER NOT AFTER THIS
Chloe: well Linda I guess I’ll be seeing you later! No deal today!
Linda: I always hated you Chloe.
(Enter Ryan, Sully, Curtis and Pressley)
Lee: what’s with all the screaming?
Sully: it’s the Rose brothers. LINDA WHY? You know I hate Eugene ever since that fight in the Charlton game.
Curtis: ok calm down Sully. I’m sure Linda has some answers for us.
Ryan: I think we should leave
Felix: yes please do. I’ll speak to you boys later.
(End of part three)
(At Ryan’s place, two days later)
Ryan: looks like things are going to change at the club now. AND ITS ALL THAT SCUM BAG BARKER’S FAULT.
Curtis: hey, hey take it easy Ryan. I know what happened at Cardiff was really bad but we have to put it all behind us
now. Just remember the new season starts in just a couple of days and we have to concentrate on the Liverpool game Saturday.
Lee: well I can’t believe you are acting so calm Curtis. In case you haven’t noticed but more than
half of the team died that day.
Curtis: WHAT YOU THINK I DON’T KNOW THAT LEE? OF COURSE I DO AND YOU KNOW WHAT? I FEEL JUST LIKE YOU ALL DO
BUT BECAUSE I’M CAPTIN OF THIS TEAM I HAVE TO HOLD IT TOGETHER SO THAT WE CAN FOCUS ON THE GAME ON SATURDAY.
Lee: well it’s worse now that Hammo has died too.
Sully: JUST STOP THIS ARGUEING! WHAT DO YOU THINK JAWS WOULD SAY EAH?
Ryan: he’s right. We have to move on now. And play for the memory of all those who died that day. It’s
what Jaws and the others would have wanted.
(A knock on the door)
Ryan: who is it?
Casper: hey Ryan it’s me! You gonna let me in?
Ryan: ha, yeah just making sure
Casper: fine, so hows about I take you all out for a drink eah?
Lee: sounds good to me
Curtis: yeah c’mon lets drink to our new future
(At a nightclub)
Curtis: ok let’s do it properly now, TO THE FUTURE! AND MAY IT BRING US GOOD LUCK FROM NOW ON
All players: TO THE FUTURE!
