1.0 out of 5 stars ., 13 Sep 2011
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

Celebrity hooligan Cass Pennant back in again! Can he give up now please? This book is interesting, but some of its a complete rubbish. The usual Villa 'nf sympathisers' to complete the set. Little more than average firms trying to give it large and soak up some glory they never had
