No, we need a more appropriate question. Something along the lines of, Name the eight clubs whose end we took in the 74-75 season.

I don't think the book promotes hooliganism to be honest Danvilla! It is a frank and open book but certainly doesn't glamorize things and all the guys involved in the writing are now 'retired'. I think it is a fascinating part of the counter culture of football, especially what went on in the 80's and early 90's. I'm looking forward to reading it, should be a fascinating read.

Was introduced to Paul Brittle after the Fulham game - seemed a nice chap. Be interested to read about his 'darker' side.

That would be a good read. Remember the running battles in the Holte end in the late 60s?

Or the mounted police charges across Aston park after we had played SHA. The bad old days, I don't miss them.
