Poorly written and as about as accurate as Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. Its really laughable how these so called hooligans always use battles against United as their badge of honour.....it's easy to pick on women and scarfers which is the usual Bolton inbred modus operandi.

Not too sure about the authors credentials as a hooligan but he has a bright future as a fiction writer.

Where do you start with this book? I'm an avid reader of this genre and read over 70 hooly books. There are none worse than this. Lots of inconsistencies and repeats of the same story by different people. EDL stories seem to take over despite the author claiming not to be racist. Has a chapter on Ipswich and talks about our playoff game being in the middle of March!! This has been rushed to print and it shows. Author will look back on this effort and have many regrets, stick to the EDL, more your level lad......

These people are not right in the head. Its a football match for god's sake, not a war. What pleasure do these morons get out of this?

Surely the end of 'hooligan' books now.....id say there isnt anymore that can be said......

Ive given the Bolton book 2 stars as there are one or two good chapters in it, the Edl, Blackpool, Wigan and foreign trips are all well written and plenty goes into them chapters.....however some other 'chapters' are just one page long, there are quite a few of these which seems to give the book a bit of a rushed finish to it, a book of two halves to quote a football saying.....anyone interested in the culture will buy this anyway regardless of reviews and id say sales will be high in Ipswich as they have finally managed to make an appearance in a book, yes, Ipswich have their own chapter, one page, says it all really............

I picked this book up the moment it popped through my letter box and couldn't put it down. Douggie and his friends, who contributed into the making of this book had my heart racing at times. You really do enter into the world they describe in the chapters. I found this book to be a honest account of the events they went through representing their firm 'The cuckoo boys'. They give respect to some of the other firms they battled with, sometimes having to retreat when they where heavly outnumbered but also standing there ground when the odds where against them and fronting them out,toe to toe to do battle with the opposing firms.

This book really does take you into the world of football hooliganism (Tho i dont like to use that word)they where their protecting there turf and the Shirtie's (NON VIOLENT FANS) HAD THEY NOT HAVE BEEN THERE A LOT OF FANS WOULD HAVE BEEN HURT COS OTHER FIRMS FROM FOOTBALL TEAMS COME TO DO DAMAGE LIKE IT OR NOT.

Judge what you will shake your head but we've all been there young dare devils with an appetite for an adrenelin rush and this is where they got their's.

To sum up its funny in parts, heart pounding in the battles and those who wrote it have hit it just right for taking you into the chapters and letting you experience and feel what they where going through when it kicked off..well done The cuckoo Boys, who wrote this i salute you
