Episode Summary

EDIT
Groundhog Day
AIRED:
The day before the final game of the season, Matt Webster, his girlfriend Alison and her young son Chris, are on holiday in Spain. Matt receives a phone call from United to inform him that his seat has been re-allocated for the final match of the season against Everton. Matt is desperate to go home early to see the match as is Alison's son. Matt manages to get 2 plane tickets, which would mean leaving Alison behind, which obviously makes her very angry. However due to plane delays they don't make it home in time. Meanwhile over in Liverpool its Dean Boyle's birthday. His dad Tony takes Dean, his new wife, Karen and her sister Donna (who also happens to be Dean's girlfriend) over to Harchester to see the match- they are Everton supporters. They arrive at the ground and buy tickets from a tout, the same tout that Ryan gave Clyde's comps to. Harchester win the final match of the season, and Phil, deciding that he no longer wants to run the club, raffles the club on from all the tickets in the home supporters stand...... Donna Boyle is sat in the winning seat, when the Boyles hand in the winning ticket it comes to light that it was infact one of Clyde's tickets that Ryan stole from him- Ryan puts in his claim to own Harchester United. The truth comes out that the Boyles are Everton supports and so the board of United decide that something must be done. However the sponsors, that are Dream inc, appoint a chief executive whilst the ownership issue is dealt with. Pilar Hernandez is appointed much to the annoyance of the board. Pilar makes an immediate impact when she agrees that Stuart is to be full time manager and they sell Fletch to make money for International striker, Luke Davenport. Alison arrives back in Harchester and she leaves Matt. He is devastated, however things look up when he discovers that as a season ticket holder- his usual seat was infact the winning seat of Phil's raffle, a third contender for ownership of Harchester United- a battle that looks set to get out of control...moreless
