This review is from: Naughty (Hardcover)
Just finished reading this book and must say that it is probably the best book of its genre.
It is not simply a repetitive tale of " we did so & so with 30 lads" followed by more of the same. The book actually gives an insight into the main characters, most noticibly the author himself, which must have taken some courage to open up his past life but also admits when the N40 or the Under 5's get a slap.
Coming from a northern industrial town, it's easy to relate to the relationships and camaraderie that are built, especially being a Burnley fan.
This is no comparison to the bilge that the Brimson brothers trot out and comes across as a genuine and honest account.
If you like Hoolifan & the Naughty Nineties, buy this book!
