About the Author
Cass Pennant is the leading voice on the subject of terrace culture for film, TV, radio and print. He has written seven best-sellers and has been namechecked in many others. His first book was his autobiography, Cass. This was followed by the hugely successful Congratulations, You Have Just Met the ICF; Want Some Aggro?; Rolling with the 6.57 Crew; Terrace Legends; Top Boys; and Good Afternoon Gentlemen, the Name's Bill Gardner. Cass's life story is now a major film. Andy Nicholls is an Evertonian who more than knows the score - when he wrote the best-selling book Scally, it was from his confessions as a former category-C football hooligan. In a short time he has become the most prominent writer of his genre and his expert knowledge has often been sought by many documentary filmmakers. Andy wrote the Everton entry in the bestselling Terrace Legends, and followed this by co-authoring Hooligans: The A-Z of Britain's Football Hooligan Gangs.See all Product Description

"the Ceasars of Rome would have turned in their graves had they had to behold the spectacle of a blanket of visiting armies banners hanging on the walls of such hallowed ground" - Italy 97.
This book has it all from Scotland wrecking Wembley to the destruction of the German football machine in Munich 2001 and still more...miss this and you miss out!
There are a number of 'hoolie' books that have been written over the past few years some of which are run of the mill, some are above average and a very few are pure class....this book comes in the latter category.
To me, this is more than just a 'hoolie' book......it's a statement of FACT!!
For years, normal people have been asking various questions like 'why does this happen?' This book will go some way to explaining that, and other, questions.
It tells tales of national pride, friendship and solidarity. It also proves that it's NOT just the football that matters to the 'fan' but comradeship, adventure and the buzz!!
It also goes to prove that bonds of frienship can bloom in the strangest of circumstances and that some rivalries can NEVER die, no matter what is going on.
A top read and goes into my top 5 of this genre of book!
This book brought back so many memories it was unreal, I was at many of the games mentioned and Nicholls managed to rewrite lads accounts so well it was like being taken back there with Dr Who in his Tardis.
A top book, buy it, and cherish it as we will never see times like that again!
