Comments

An inside look at the grotesque violence the accompanied English Football through the 1980s culminating in the riots during the 1990 World Cup in Italy. Buford is the former editor of Granta and he spent eight years researching this work (much of the time was spent with Manchester United supporters) on fan violence. A captivating read.
