1.0 out of 5 stars Inside the Forest Executive Crew, 27 Nov 2005

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Inside the "Forest Executive Crew" (Hardcover)
This must rate as the worst hooligan book ever written. I have read over 20 books and have every legitimate DVD and video on this subject. Including the BBC documentaries.

Add to this that I have stood in the 'A Block' at Forest having lived in Nottingham for over 15 years, and seen many battes at Villa Park, where I saw my first introduction to this social phenomenon.

After an excellent start recounting a miscreant upbringing in Nottingham, the book deterioarates into a collection of anecdotal statements. Many of which give the committed reader no reason to give credibility to the authors vague memory of events. The book took less than 2 days to read, and that was at a canter. As for the ratings of firms, that was totalling embarassing as the author simply suggests that if HE was not there or if he didn't manage to turn up on time - which was a regular occurrence, then he boldy states, that there was no firm!

Nowhere does the book explain his rationale. The author seems to win every battle, irrespective of the odds. As for ridicule, in one chapter he claims to be penniliess, only to find international travel and endless hotels stays in the next - and for once without the aid of his Grandmother. The only areas of interest were the various detentions in Prison. The author seeem to spend most of his time being nicked!

Even allowing for creative flexibility, as most authors are entitled, this book is very, very wide of the mark. Most disappointing
