Better than expected
on 29 August 2017
I thought this was an excellent book. There was so much more to the book than just football games. The author spoke emotionally and honestly about his family, his childhood, his identity and just how much football meant to him. He provided a fascinating picture of 1970's and 1980's Britain - the politics, the police, the clubs, the fashion, the union workers.
There are a lot of chapters which make for a thrilling read. I found myself in shock at some of the confrontations described. I can see why this book was made into a movie. Highly recommended.
