5.0 out of 5 stars Review of Diary of the Real Soul Crew 17 Oct 2008
By Wilts
In my opinion a very good read and unlike other hooligan books it doesn't glorify violence and also with a couple of exceptions the writers are all diehard CCFC fans who do not fit the stereotypical hooligan image-i.e. they go for the football and are not your top boy hoolies like the authors of some other books. Unlike other books it never claims that cardiff are invincible (Andrew Tooze please take note).

The most amusing chapter was Gwyn's Victory in Chesterfield-written with typical valleys humour. Big Sams 'Hooligans in Uniform' was good describing ott policing and criticising the egg chasing media-a chapter that all real cardiff fans can equate too. I particularly enjoyed Geran Shepherds Dont mention the war part-great humour from a german-the wolves away part being interesting along with the West Ham ICF (I chuck fruit) story.

I thought that Gillys chapter was a waste of ink-nothing really said apart from his respect for CCFC-no stories or anything.

Personally i would recommend it for CCFC fans as it captures a large part of the CCFC culture and cammeradare over the last 30 years and it shows that the majority of football lads are decent people with morals and values like the rest of us.

This book along with Shattered Dreams is like the literary version of Jonathan Owen's FA Cup Diary-in other words they capture the passion of following CCFC.

Well done Annis and the authors. 9/10

5.0 out of 5 stars a part of football history 18 Oct 2008
By sludge
whilst most of us may not agree with what happened in the past, the activities of hooligan gangs was a part of football history for many clubs up and down the country all those years ago. This book is a frank and honest account of what went on and as such is a vital insight into a side of football that is now thankfully fast becoming a memory.Football violence is part of british social history and as such this book gives a view from one side of the trenches.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 15 Oct 2010
This book gives a range of stories of the days of the Soul Crew. Honest and Brilliant. It tells the stories in a good humour. Also the fact it is written by various team 'hooligans' makes it a more truthful read and more enjoyable. Good book
