Some decent pics though and a fair few faces to boot. Definitely worth a punt.
Ubnlike the other book, you don't get the feeling of lovable rogues about this lot. Although they stress the point that fighting came before the football in some cases, it appears that they are not much more than a bunch of blokes interested in getting drunk and finding a fight.
Michael Lutwyche does try to explain at the front of the book why this is (and he raises some interesting points) but as a fan raised outside Birmingham, some of the anti Birmingham City references cannot be fully appreciated.
Not a bad book, probably better if you're around 35 and based in the midlands as you could probably identify better with the writer and his mates.
If they got a result they say so, if they didn't they say so - which you can't say for the majority of books on the subject of football hooliganism.
