Invariably violent, often brutal, frequently funny, sometimes moving but always compelling. Chugg takes us to the beating heart of the ICF, Scotland's most-feared football-hooligan gang. As the ICF rampages from one battle to the next at home and abroad, leaving many casualties in its wake, we meet figures who have become legends in the uncompromising world of football violence: men like Barry Johnston, Harky, Davie Carrick, Big Boris, Warren and James 'Fat' McLeod. This is the most-detailed account yet written about any of Scotland's mobs, with new material on almost every page. The twenty-plus chapters provide a fascinating insight into what really happened during the years when football violence was at its peak and there is even a chapter on the mayhem Rangers fans perpetrated in the 1960s and 1970s, well before the era of the casual. It would be impossible to give a complete list of the fascinating subjects covered by this book, but these are some of the highlights. Belly of the Beast: when fifty ICF took on a thousand Celtic fans before the notorious Old Firm title decider of 1999. Raid on the Gallowgate: the ICF launch a reckless attack on the Gallowgate pubs, Celtic's spiritual home. Price on his Head: why the IRA wanted Chugg shot. The vicious battles for supremacy with Hibs and Aberdeen. Taking on Scotland's other mobs: Dundee Utility, Kilmarnock, Partick Thistle, Motherwell and many more besides. South of the Border: the ICF front up to Sunderland, Everton and Man Utd. Marching through Europe: the ICF exported more football violence than any other British firm and there are breathtaking accounts of encounters with the likes of Juventus, Ajax, PSV, Bruges and Paris St Germain. Then, for the first time in any book, there is the story of the elite Scottish National Firm, including its forays into England, its clashes with the hated Tartan Army and of course the ill-fated trip to the 1998 World Cup in France, the trip that launched a thousand newspaper headlines.
