About the Author

Annis Abraham Jnr. is a lifelong Cardiff supporter with deep-rooted connections to his club. The son of a self-made millionaire of direct Egyptian descent, he has not merely been a fan or (allegedly) a hooligan, but also an entrepreneur who has sponsored Cardiff's players, kits, vehicles, match balls and programmes.

Having been on the scene myself and an avid reader of hooli books, this book caught my eye as it was written by ANNIS who is well known and respected. He captured his and our memories of the 70's and 80's scene and didn't glorify it.!! He even got rival lads to add their replies and cut no corners. I didn't have much to do with Cardiff in the early days being a West Ham fan but i heard many stories which have been verified in this book.

I read the original version which was a good account and brought back memories from games i attended in my youth. This updated version is more professionally produced with some great original stories by quality authors like Annis, Big Gwyn, Simmo and Mikey Dye. THe up dated version includes great accounts of recent trouble at Swindon and Chelsea which shows that the culture of football is still there despte CCTV, Banning Orders etc.

Unlike most 'hooligan' books this has accounts from both sides and not the usual 1 sided version of events with interesting stories from Chelsea, Plymouth and Brum to name but 3.

Fair play to Annis. He has produced some great books. This one IMHO is 2nd to Shattered Dreams ( a must read for CCFC fans). For anyone who grew up watching football in the 80s and 90s it is a must read.

Looking forward to Annis autobiography.

This book is a must read for lads/casuals everywhere. Wether youre on the scene now, or were a part of it during the heyday, you'll no doubt relate to the stories brought you by Annis Abraham, the lads who fought side by side with him as part of the Soul Crew and by those who stood toe to toe with Cardiffs notorious firm.

There are plenty of hooligan books around and Ive not seen many, if any better than 'The Complete Chronicles'. A mix of the cold hard truth of how it was mixing it with Cardiffs lads, and the humour and laughs along the way.

This book is essential reading for any lad and is as much a part of the casual scene as a pair or Trimm Trabs or Stone Island gear.

Like others reviewers I've seen the Soul Crew up close and personal. It is easy to say we did this or that but you can very easily get caught out when others who were around at the time say that is not how I remember things. This is a book that recalls events pretty well spot on. While it would be wrong to say everything is 100% the events that I witnessed that are covered are pretty much bang on, and that is good enough for me.

The book charts the rise and some falls of the Cardiff City Soul Crew from its earliest days right up until very recent times. It is well worth a read for anyone that is interested in Terrace Culture.

Read the original books, but with some new stories and laid out differently it was a great way to spend a weeks holiday reading this book.
A good spread of varying input added from many different people ensure that there is something there to appeal to people with many different opinions on football culture. Read and enjoy.
