Well, if nothing else I did learn a number of things about Oldham and lower division football in the 1970’s. 1) As a town Oldham appeared to consist entirely of rough and violent council estates; 2) all the males from these areas quickly evolved from skinny teens into towering, powerfully built, fearless brutes (except those who chose rugby as a career who were short); 3) however, despite their fearsome appearance and reputation, and that of football fans in general at the time, they never had the least problem hitching a lift to matches anywhere, even during the ‘Ripper era’; 4) Oldham was an unexpected employment hotspot in the late 70’s when the country had well over a million out of work (‘there were jobs aplenty…’); 5) there were no fully black people, just ‘half-castes’; 6) at a time when even Division 2 crowds hovered around 3-5,000 brave souls, there were always hundreds or thousands involved in major disorder; 7) at every match at every ground fans were beaten to a pulp, slashed, pounded with iron bars, left unconscious, bleeding profusely, bones broken, manhood’s crushed, but a few days later were back in the fray; 8) pubs and shops were ransacked, robbed and destroyed on a regular basis but continued in business and presumably did little to prepare for the following week’s ransacking and robbing.
From a (then) First Division London perspective many things differed from this account. By the late 70’s the unruly young Oldhamers had fragmented into every imaginable youth cult of the previous 20 years and all participated to some degree in football hooliganism. But in London, if I remember correctly, greaser/rocker/Angel types were largely suburban or country and had no interest in football. Skinhead/suedehead/boot boy were the sole urban terrace cults.

It's the 1970 and early 80's. This is the story of those times. Carl writes how the hair was shaved, the music is funky and the football is violent. This is the story how he first saw all this action take place when he has been a young boy, and how it was influence him and excite him into wanting to be a part of the action on the terraces. It is a story of the adrenaline-packed Saturday afternoons/evenings, race riots, platform of bovver boots and discos. Carl launched himself into the culture of the decade with a passion. This book is a must read and many will relate to Carl's experience and emotions as you read it.

I have read this book and found it quite interesting. My dad is friends with carl and his actually in the Book. TBH I've read quite a number of these books and it is quite informative about the time and culture. if you get a chnace read the book he has done previously we are the most famous hooligans that's another good read and a prequel to this.
