This was probably the first, and best book written about life as a football hooligan. Much better than copycat books that sprout up on regular basis now. This tells of the author's rise through the ranks, but does not glamourise or exagerate the tales. A good tale of casual life in the 80's.

Format: Paperback
An enjoyable book, pulsating and seems honest, really makes the younger person like myself who was curious about this scene gutted to have missed the times.

The book glamourises the times and cities and the sad thing is the police clampdown, as at the end of the day its two bunches of guys who want to fight each other. This was a culture...something to look forward to and have a desire to be a part of.

All the casuals in Scotland done your cities proud, you dressed very well and travelled, a lot of money got put into the clothing industry in Scotland, streets became famous, people excited it was what life is all about, out there new times, new happenings.
Aberdeen and Hibernian...top,top guys hope you enjoyed yourselves while it lasted. Forget the old firm, thats religion Edinburgh and Aberdeen were the scottish cities where people seen new happenings and a new culture born, they lived it and the cities were stamped forever.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great book for any football loving supporter, as it looks at the life of a football supporter/casual during one of the most violent periods in British football history. (Based mainly in Scotland with Aberdeen's firm).
Throughout the autobiography, Jay, describes the life of a soccer casual, from the short journeys to the Schooner (pub) before home games, to the long distance ferry to Gothenburg for the most famous game in Aberdeen's history.
The book is full of escapades, described in such a way, that you can image the exact scene, hiding in a pub waiting for the moment that the Motherwell casuals are just passed the entrance waiting to be ambushed by the Aberdeen soccer casuals.
A good short read that will have you crying out for more!

Format: Paperback
jay allen tells it exactly as it is in this engrossing account of organised violence. One point that he stresses is that it is never the intention of a casual to seriously harm a fellow hoolifan but more to try and stick one on as many of the opposition as possible rather than focus on one person.
A minor grumble is that he says that no innocent individual ever gets hurt. This is simply not true, as an x member of the villa youth i remember when the chelsea headhunters claimed to have taken the holte end, this is rubbish they made sure they were surrounded by scarfers and shirters rather than casuals and by the time that the villa youth got to em they were running!!!!
jay also takes this biased stance although having never been to a game north of the border i cannot dispute whether or not the ASC were the top boys - but this is a totally engrossing read and cannot be recommended strongly enough.
