First-hand accounts of football violence, from infamous Millwall to Man U. Once dubbed ‘the English disease’, British match-day thuggery has spread right across Europe and beyond. Here is the inside story of that phenomenon from those that were there, taking part in the mayhem. ‘Yob Laureate’ Dougie Brimson and his brother Eddy offer a compelling description of match-day madness; Colin Ward goes steaming in, while other pieces detail the irresistible aggro of the local Derby, the tragedy inside Heysel Stadium and the violence surrounding England’s 1998 World Cup match against Tunisia. Finally, Dougie Brimson asks if the police are not just another ‘firm’, simply participants in the violence.
