    Book details

Stanley is a football-mad 11 year-old whose beloved team, City, faces relegation from the Premiership. His mother is a football-hating computer scientist. In desperation, Stan accesses her ‘cybertelekinesis’ program to create Lazlo, a genius striker who can save City. By a risky process of mental and electronic energy, he turns himself into Lazlo - and gets himself on to the City team. Stanley’s greatest dream is about to become true - but it turns into a nightmare when he can’t get back into his own body again . . .

"'A potent source of fantasy for the soccer-mad.' The Daily Telegraph; 'What a goal!' The Times; "The Transfer is in a league of its own. Blacker fuses two junior fiction obsessions - football and computers - into a compulsively readable story...Fantasy football as it should be for nine to twelve year-olds.' The Sunday Telegraph"

  • By A. Thomas on 6 February 2010

    My 10 year old son thinks that this book is a football sensation. He thought it was amazing. It made him want to go out and play football.

    The transfer is about a boy called Stanley Peterson who is football mad. He supports his local team, City and is desperate for them to win the premier league. Stanley's mum is a computer scientist who has just created an electronic hairnet that can create computer generated things and move things on screen. One day Stanley creates a superb football striker called Lazlo who he can change into and who can save City. But everything goes wrong for Stanley when he can't get back into his own body...I thought this book was quite exciting but was a bit disappointing at the end. I recommend it for people aged 12 and up.
