Book Description

26 April 2011
This is the fascinating account of one man's extraordinary relationship with his football club. Annis Abraham Jnr. first saw Cardiff City play at their Ninian Park ground in 1973; since then he has visited almost every ground in the Football League to witness his beloved team's triumphs and tragedies. This personal memoir of the beautiful game is also a chronicle of its times; for there was always trouble with Cardiff, whether they were playing at home or away, the passion of their huge active following often spilling over into punches and kicks. The author gives a full and honest account of his own life as one of the boys, both with the Cardiff fraternity and their notorious 'firm', the Soul Crew, who mixed it with every other rival firm back in the days when hooliganism was rife. Abraham also chronicles how some of the hardcore fans have risen up through the hierarchies - whether muscling their way into big-time crime or the boardroom - and his own abiding friendship with former Cardiff chairman Sam Hammam, better known as 'Sam the Man'. Most controversially, the Welsh football fan reveals how he was thrust into the media spotlight by damaging allegations of hooliganism in a Panorama special, 'England's [sic] Shame', broadcast by the BBC during the European Championships of 2000. An entrepreneur involved in the running of bars and nightclubs, the highly opinionated Mr Abrahams has had his problems over the years. But he has a story to tell, and it's one that will amuse, amaze and entertain anyone with even a passing interest in Britain's football culture.
