Format: Paperback
This book is inaccurate and full of lies basically. A lot of the material has been lifted from hooligan websites and I can tell you that I was there all through the 80s and many of the stories are quite simply not how it happened. I wouldnt touch this with a bargepole. It says people were stabbed at games I was at and they werent so the author is either making it up or he has been fed and has printed it without question. A load of rubbish.

Although I can't condone this sort of thing it is interesting, if not fasinating, to read about the different hooligan gangs that were, and to a lesser extent, still are attending the games to fight with their rivals.

It was annoying to have to buy two books to have the full A-Z of the teams and their hooligan sect, but who can blame the authors for doubling up on their takings and if they had of combined both books it would have been bigger than a Ken Follett Novel, so fair play to them.

Very well written and although it is the sort of book that you can't put down, it's not the sort of book that you'd need to pick up again once you've read it. It's not really a reference book more of a one off sort of a read for anyone who is curious about the topic.

This book had to be written and it had to be read - from an educational and historical point of view its a very good book and I have no regrets buying it or reading it.

Format: Paperback
Just read the section on Villa, like to clear a few lies (complete misinformation) up
Villa are an nf supporting team - there are nf fans within the hardcore, but not as many. There was black and asian lads within the hardcore
Said that west ham and chelsea took the holte (arsenal and Birmingham are the only team to have come close to doing so)
The 2004 meet with wba was planned - it weren't it happened a few hours later when they found out where they were drinking. Villa top lad didn't turn up til it had started going off.
That the zulu's privately admitted humuliation on rocky lane - they weren't humiliated they'd done alright with the numbers they had.
And it was birmingham fans running on the pitch when we played them home in 2003. It was a fact the hardcore on the pitch. Its also a fact that Villa kicked it off with them before and they opened up the ground early to get people away from it. Also Villa were baton charged back at the end while birmingham refused to come out.
Either the authors have something against Villa, or they just haven't bothered to check anything out

A "Must have" for the lads (and there dads!!) retired or still at it, brought a tear to my eye, especially when you read of fines and community service when today such behaviour gets you 3 years! A trip down memory lane, well written and very true.

A okay read if your into the subject matter very detailed and sometimes pertubing insight into the problems of the 70s and 80s.
