Defintely recommend this book to anyone moderately interested in football hooliganism and the north west in general. Top stuff andy
Stories I had heard locally in the past regarding Everton and supporters travels were regarded as 'fairy tales', Nicholls blows away this myth and provides a murky insight into an element of Everton's support that were intent on causing havoc around the country over two decades and as recently as August this year with a pre season riot in Belgium.
It explains in graphic detail of battles with other supporters and a rivalry with Middlesbrough that lasts to the present day. He touches on the England scene and how Scousers are disliked by most fans in the country and the divisions within the England scene. The Merseyside/Manchester hatred is covered in depth and his dislike of Liverpool FC, although his account of Heysel (Of which he was present himself) was a fair one. I found the book a good honest read, it's not the usual hoolie lies to sell books, he tells it as it was by not making himself out to be a super hero and backs up a lot of stories with photo's and press cuttings to compliment the chapters contents.
Most bookshops within Merseyside are refusing to sell the book such is the uproar over the book, I suggest you buy before it's too late!.
" Scally " is frank, truthful and entertaining from start to finish. Free from the self hype of other hooli books Nicks account is accurate and at times funny yet disturbing. Tales of being an urchin getting legged by Geordies with beards, getting on his bike(literally)at Oxford and accounts of the CRC, Kensington High Street and the return leg meant I couldnt put it down.
Regular battles with the Red Army, Boro, the Cockneys and more are described honestly although I'm sure some may have a slightly different version of events. Southampton at Highbury '84 brought back memories. Missed opportunties - The Naughty Forty, Zulus are also covered. Ending with running the Belgian buzzies at Anderlecht, seeking help to pack it all in after nearly twenty four years at it this is undoubtly one of the best
All in money well spent - invest in this one !!!!
