Sometimes in the book the guy seems more than a yuppie with a hobby than a football fan, his feet stuck into the bourgeoisie , so I missed the proletarian style of hooligan books.
But there are good points too. Some words of every single WC match he watched and the book seems very honest, is a guy telling things he really saw, not trying to make a best-seller. Also, I… Read more
