This book took me just under a week to read and have to say that it may not be the best book I have ever read on football hooliganism it certainly isn't the worst.

What let it down was that I was expecting a book about the infamous Rangers ICF but what I got was a book about the ICF and many other hooligan firms both in Scotland and England.

I think that if the Authors had kept to the subject of the Rangers ICF then I would have had more pages in my morning paper.

What also let it down was the fact that I have read Hoolifan by Martin King,the co-author and really enjoyed his work on that book so was preety dissapointed by this effort.

4.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate No 9, 15 Dec 2002
I have just finished reading this book,which took me 3 sittings and found it highly informative.Having read Geoff Hurst's autobiography earlier this year i was looking forward to reading this book about Everton's No 1 son but found it at times a little disappointing as it tended to, at times distract from the subject and chose to talk about other players which i found a little irratating but never the less it was a book which told me a lot about the greatest centre forward ever.
This is the first review i have ever submitted so it is a little rusty.
