Having read most of the first generation of hoolie books, where the authors always seemed to give a good kicking to every firm they ever met regardless of the numbers, it was refreshing to read an account from someone who wasn't afraid to say he was put on his backside a few times. Nicholls has probably had the benefit of learning from the mistakes of his predecessors and shows some degree of humility in the various tales he tells. This makes for a more honest and believable read than many of the other titles available in this ever increasing genre. Yes there's lots of reference to, '...80 of our top boys were met by 150 of their mob etc' but it never descends into the realms of superhero-style fantasy where he is battering whole firms on his own. The book is well written and gives detailed, and often humourous, accounts of various clashes they had, both on home soil and in Europe, over a number of years. One of the best books of its kind that I've read, and that's discounting the fact I'm an Evertonian!!

Being interested in the football hooligan topic i bought this book (being a united fan!) to read on holiday. Previously only read Tony O'Neill's i thought i'd branch out a bit. Well worth a money, great read. Doesn't just cover the bog standard hoolie fight, covers the knife epidemic in liverpool, other business ventures, england and lots of other stuff. Andy was dead honest throughout the book, often admitting they were defeated etc, which is a lot more preferrable than the undefeatable cockney versions!

Defintely recommend this book to anyone moderately interested in football hooliganism and the north west in general. Top stuff andy

having never been a part of the hooligan side of football i found most of these types of books over the top,for me football away days have been about the banter the beer and having a laugh not going home to the mrs and kids with black eyes,back in the 80s you couldent help but bump into trouble now again and some of the tales i found to be bigged up but in this book theres a refrence to a game that i was at and in fairness to the author as i remember it he got it spot on and i have no doubts mr nicholls has told the truth hear to the best of his memory so if you read the hoolie books andys has to be the best ive read to date and as you read it you start to feel as you know a bit more about him and i for one am pleased hes found some thing in his life to make him happy,nice andy..

I've got to be honest and say along with Soul Crew this is an excellent read from start to finish. I maybe biased in the fact it's about a local club and although I don't actually support Everton it made the read even more interesting. Andy Nicholls has paid a heavy price for telling his frank account and incidents that have occured on his travels of following Everton, he has since been banned by Everton Football Club and Merseyside police are checking every detail within the book to see if any action can be taken as he has been too honest and maybe left himself open to further police action such is the content within the book!.
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!.

Andy Nicholls recollection of the life and times of being a
" 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 !!!!
