Episode Summary

Passports Out
The team prepare for their first ever Champions League game, with a new look squad. New captain Stevie Shaw, record signing Andrei Belanov, and Gary Peggs just progressed from Harchester's Youth Squad. There is also brand new management at the Lair this season; Multi-millionaire Sam Irving has brought Harchester United and brought in a new manager for the team, Alan Rothman, and new coach David Spears. As the team prepare to fly out to Mallorca for the 1st, away leg of the Champions League, the police arrive to arrest Fletch, in connection with the murder of Prashant Dattani. Whilst Fletch protests his innocence Alan stays behind in Harchester to organise a lawyer for Fletch, and to get him out in time for the champions League game. David goes with the team to Mallorca, where everyone is very nervous. The pressure is on Danny Rawsthorne, who is worried that he will be the only striker available if Fletch doesn't make it, and Monday is out injured. Jamie is also feeling the pressure when his old gambling habits are put to the test when the rest of the team engage in a card school. But Danny ensures that Jamie stays away. Back in Harchester, Monday Bandele arrives home from his holiday in Nigeria, where is picked up an injury during a friendly match. He arrives home to a letter from Siobhan saying that she has left him. Monday is genuinely upset, and he turns to Tash for support. Alan, who is having an affair with David's wife Dawn, finally manages to get Fletch out on bail, and they fly to Mallorca just minutes before the match, leaving Fletch no time to prepare. Meanwhile, Lynda Block is also staying in Mallorca, not for the match, but to get away from Harchester, and is staying in Jeff Stein's villa- she wants to forget about Harchester and football, and start a new life. However, the new owner, Sam Irving has different plans for her. He arranges a meeting with her in Mallorca and he offers her the position of Chief Executive at Harchester. Lynda is very tempted! The match gets underway; the first half doesn't go in Harchester's favour. Fletch is taken off at half-time which just adds to his misery. Harchester eventually win the match, but whilst the celebrations are underway, Fletch goes AWOL!moreless
