About this product
- DescriptionFor many years, football fans and violence have been linked in the public mind. However, after the Hillsborough disaster and the Taylor Report, grounds and policing matches improved. It began to seem as if the football hooligan was a dying breed - but the riot at Lansdowne Road in Dublin showed that he was still thriving. In fact, as the authors explain, he never went away he simply changed his tactics. In this shocking and revealing book, football fans describe in their own frank words why they get involved in violence and how it is w organised. They tell of their contempt for those who try to analyse their backgrounds (most are in work and well paid, t unemployed) and their motivation. While t condoning the fans' behaviour, the authors show how the authorities have consistently made the wrong decisions in trying to combat hooliganism and suggest a way forward for the game.
- Author BiographyBorn in 1959, Dougie Brimson is a former football hooligan who spent 18 years in the RAF.
