4.0 out of 5 stars WORTHWHILE READING FOR CASUAL LADS, 31 Jan 2004
This review is from: Naughty (Hardcover)
Having bought every book on football hooliganism and terrace culture within the last fifteen years and having been an ex member of a firm myself, I treat most of the books in the same manner,most of them being biased one sided accounts of that particular firms encounters against rival opposition.
But the NAUGHTY FORTY book is one of the better books to have hit the bookshelves with Mark Chester giving a fairly obvious honest account of events and the social side of being involved in a firm.
The book is clearly tailored for "lad culture" and those who study the enigma of football violence.
Some accounts willbe shocking to those who are uninitiated but relevant and common to those who have participated or are stillactive.
Mark Chester uses a verytrue quotation in the book when he states that"only those who have had that adrenalin rush from organised football violence" can relate to what it is all about, there are many who try to explain the reasons why people get involved in the violence but they are only looking in from the outside, thus making this book good reading from those who have actually been there and understand what the attraction is.
