Didn't know anything about Bill Gardner (aka BG), but was curious since I've read a short story about ICF - West Ham's famous firm. It seems like BG have a strong intention to polish his reputation, and many pages are old friends telling about how nice person he is and that he never in his entire life got a beating. Very little about why he was banned from West Ham's home ground.

This is not a book about casuals...its more like an attempt to rebuild Bill Gardner's reputation as a gentleman. Boring reading I must say

Having read quite a few books on football, hooligans and the football "heyday", i bought this one thinking it would be similar. Unfortunately it wasnt, and it was more like a diary detailling which teams played who etc.. I got about 1/3rd of the way through it and moved onto another book instead.

What a surprise another Pennant offering where no-one has every taken a beating, lives by a strict code of conduct, etc etc, yawn. Fair play for milking it for all it's worth but to be honest they're getting embarrassing - see the chap[ter written by an ex doorman mate.

I have been waiting for this book to come out after hearing that this "West Ham legend" was writing one. It gives a good and honest account of him growing up as a fan and following his idols all over the country and abroad !!! He has built a reputation over the years from nearly every person or football supporter that tried to bully him and knew that he was a man to be respected. With Cass's book in my bookcase,this will be read over and over again .......
