More About the Author

Cass Pennant is the best-selling author of eight football-related books, five of which have been UK Top Ten bestsellers.
His best selling autobiography "CASS" was published by John Blake and followed his entry as a hard bastard in the book of the same name by Kate Kray, the former wife of Kray twin, Ronnie. He subsequently wrote and co-authored, CONGRATULATIONS, YOU HAVE JUST MET THE I.C.F.; WANT SOME AGGRO?; ROLLING WITH THE 657 CREW; GOOD AFTERNOON GENTLEMEN THE NAME IS BILL GARDNER; TERRACE LEGENDS; TOP BOYS; 30 YEARS OF HURT:

As the CEO of Pennant Books, he has conceived and published a wide array of valuable titles in the sport, biography and crime genres. Pennant is also the eponymous hero of the critically acclaimed British feature film Cass starring Anoso Anozie, which was based on his best-selling autobiography about his turbulent life and character, constantly strengthened through adversity.

As an acknowledged authority on the culture of hooliganism and gang culture, he advised on numerous TV and film projects, including Guy Ritchie's acclaimed Snatch and Alan Clarke's The Firm along with Lexi Alexander's Green Street/Hooligans plus Bravo TV's The Real Football Factories and ITV's Bouncer's series.

Youths, and sometimes grown men, misbehaving at a football match is nothing new; it's been around and reported in the media for nearly a hundred years. Read the first page

Format: Hardcover
Having thoroughly enjoyed reading Cass Pennant's "Congratulations, You have Just Met the ICF" I ordered this book. It's not really a book as such; it consists simply of of "Terrance Legends" answering the same set of questions. Whilst Pennants "Congratulations" did not glorify violence as such, this book is merely a forum for people, some with police records and banning orders, to spout whatever they feel like. Additionally, because of the format, there aren't many indepth descriptions for those who enjoy the "we steamed into the Chelsea and gave them a right hiding" sort of bravado. It's more, "we're a top firm, but on the day anyone can be turned over. We wrecked this boozer. Respect to the so and so crew. They're game as ?#!@. Those were the days".
I could have given this book a miss. Disappointing really, because "Congratulations" was well written and gave a glimpse of what it was all about for those who could never experience it first hand.

having read a few books of this ilk i can say this is not the best by far. detailed it is on the indivduals concerned but no, it didnt live up to what i expect from accounts on this subject. way below the standard of books by dougie brimson and bill gardner.

I bought this book for a friend who has always been into reading about football hooligans. However he was rather disappointed with this book and says that the stories were awful!

As this book is primarily about hooliganism it is ruined by the fact pages are devoted to interviews with fans who admit they are not into and were never involved in, football violence. The questionaire itself could be more interesting and gets repetitive as the same questions are asked to each interviewee and the answers being to sound quite samey.

The sequel to this book Top Boys: True Stories of Football's Hardest Men is much, much better. It deals with the realiities of present day hooliganism rather than just chatting a lot about the 70s/80s, taking ends etc etc. It also greatly benefits from having a wide range of clubs (including several foreign ones ) represented. Terrace Legends is mostly the obvious club and inexplicably includes 2 Newcastle and 2 Sunderland interviewees rather than having one of each and a wider range.

Not as good as I thought just about different firms hating each other which is what it's all about now

This is the book that finally convinced me to stop reading books like this. It's full of cliches and lame posturing. Hooliganism and what drove it is an interesting subject, but that's about mob/pack/tribal culture - not about individuals like these...

the questions asked are absolutly pants how are we supposed to find out just how tough these ''legends'' are when they are telling us about their favourite music ?. The book lacks action, i expected to read about some great battles but this book completely fails to deliver
