Superb and gripping account of Arsenal supporters history.
on 8 September 2007
This book is a collection of interview with Arsenal fans up to 1992. It is utterly compelling, fascinating and full of anecdotes...funny, tragic and thrilling. Rather than a history of the club, it therefore highlights the social changes that affected fans in each decade. From the increasing ease of away travel, to growing player stardom, to mutli ethnic London, to hooliganism and the introduction of all-seater stadia...everything is here. Most fans are just normal supporters but a few ex players and famous faces comment too. I recommend this book to all Arsenal fans as a brilliant read, and to other supporters who are interested in the social relevance of what it means to be a football fan.
