Format: Paperback
Chris Henderson has done what the other football hooligan books have failed (with the exception of Hearts are Here) to do, and that is tell things exactly how they were with total honesty.
He is a man who undoubtedly has a story to tell, and that story was well presented by Colin Ward. The book makes you feel like you were standing shoulder to shoulder with Henderson during the Chelsea Firm's good and bad days.
Forget Hoolifan..this is the true terrace culture classic, and is a must read for anyone interested in both football and Skinhead culture. In a word..SUPERB!

Proof if it were needed that the only qualification needed to write one's biography and have it published is the knowledge that you have done something.....
I wanted to dislike Henderson's book; I'll admit it now. I still remember seeing him on BBC's 'Arena' programme back in the 80's, fronting Combat 84, who may not have been explicitly an extreme right-wing skinhead band, but they gave expression to lots of lads in my local town who were indeed worshipful of Adolf Hitler.
Henderson graduated to become 'somebody' at Chelsea in the 80's. OK, many people graduated from the Shed to the benches and became part of the late 20's/early 30's crew who did the business. I used to travel down from East Anglia with a couple of guys, George and Rick, who were also eminently qualified to do the business were it required of them. It rarely was, and they were more than happy to head back to a Saturday night session that became a Sunday morning session the next day in their local.
Henderson recounts events at a time when Chelsea had lost their way, as it were, in the supporter stakes. Ginger Terry Last, Icky and the other boys of the time were in jail fighting their convictions, many other faces were getting on with their lives, and so he rose into the limelight and ran into trouble.
Henderson is honest about what he did, and in many ways he proves the increasingly obvious tenet that it is pointless writing books about one's expolits as a football fan who got involved in trouble. The lifestyle lends itself to the luvvie world of literature about as much as a hard core animal rights activist thinks about precision joinery. If you see what I mean. The book kept me amused on a 45-minute flight from Edinburgh to Luton, but then I wanted to throw it in the bin.
