4.0 out of 5 stars Another fine book from a good 'football hooligan' author, 27 Mar 2008

This review is from: God Save the Team: Fighting for Survival at Euro 2000 (Paperback)
I previously read Eddy Brimson's book 'Hooligan' and throughully enjoyed it. I appreciate this book is a real account of happenings from Euro 2000 as opposed to a novel, but Eddy writes these books from the experience of being a self confessed, yet now reformed football hooligan, therefore what he writes is accurate and his views and experiences are real.

Dont be mistaken in thinking this book is about Eddy's own personal involvement as a football hooligan, in fact its far from that. This is about his experience of the Euro 2000 Finals in Belgium and Holland. Those of you merely after a book about punch ups and battles should perhaps look elsewhere, but if you are interested in what actually went on during Euro 2000 and to read some interesting views on this and football violence in general, then this is a good book. Eddy tells his story from a down to earth perspective, but also shows a lot of intelligence about the subject.

I should have read 'Tear Gas and Ticket Touts' first as that was about France 98, but didnt realise that at the time! I will however also be reading this book.
