I have personally read most football firms books from all the big and small teams and I have got to say this book is by far the worst book I have ever read.
I'm a West Ham fan but actually have a lot of respect for Millwall as a top firm but this book is a total embarrassment to Millwall.
In over 40 years of football violence, this geezer has never lost a fight or been caught out and turned over by another firm, yeah right.
He mentions when Millwall caught West Ham out at Bank tube station in the early 80's and a West Ham fan got stabbed and never made it. Yes Millwall did catch West Ham out but I was there and what he fails to mention is there was about 300 Millwall and 20 West Ham and the fella who got stabbed I see over West Ham last season so his claim about him not making it is rubbish. He has not got one good thing to say about West Ham. If he's to be believed then West Ham had to be the biggest bunch of mugs in the football hooligan world.
About the only thing in the book I agree with is how fierce the rivalry between West Ham and Millwall was. The rivalry between the two made any other football rivalry look like an episode of the Waltons.
One of the reviews I've read on this book says how author probably wasn't even on Millwall's firm but could actually be a journalist trying to cash in on stories he's heard. I totally agree that's more than possible.
I have rated this book with one star for one reason only and that's it's not possible to give a rating of minus 3 stars.
One day I hope one of the proper Millwall boys does write a book because as I've said Millwall were a top firm and this load of rubbish needs to be corrected.
