Can I have a guess at the question please? errr... how about "Villains is a book about gangs from which club - a) Villa b) Ministry of Sound c) 9 iron
DeanoVilla
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.

errrr ..... is it 9 iron? Can you send a book please.

Or how about the book Villains is written by Danny Brown & Paul Brittle. What is the name of Aston Villa ground.
still skeggy
Mr Fear promoting hooliganism :O
danvilla2
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.
The Fear
Only joking feary!!

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