    One thought on “Congratulations, You Have Just Met the I.C.F.”

    1. As a football supporter this book amazed me as how football has changed over the years. How these supporters got up to the things they did without being locked up is unbelievable and the weapons they took to games and into grounds I had a body spray taken off me before I could enter a league one game earlier this season. The book is interesting to read for a football supporter but gets a bit tedious at times quite repetitive

    2. The title of the book is their business card, I think it's brilliant on their part though I can't say I'm sorry I was never handed one. Or perhaps I am. There are probably large cardboard boxes full of what's written about football hooligans. They analyze the why and the how; violence seems to attract a sort of fascination and I admit I am not immune to it. And I am not immune to a level of admiration for anyone like Bill Gardner who could walk up to the mob of another firm and say "Good afterno [...]

    3. if you ever being caught by the buzzling sound of the football chants this book will catch your attention too sure will be highly appreciated mostly by the fans of West Ham United but nevertheless it provides interesting facts and points of view of one whole era in history of the game - the Hoolifans in the 80's. pointless violence, adrenalin rush and the-good-old-times is what you can read about mostly but somehow it is exactly what the hooligan movement is about.I like the book but still I sup [...]

    4. Deludente.Mi aspettavo una disamina sul fenomeno hooligan descritta dall'interno, da uno che quel fenomeno lo ha vissuto in prima linea. Invece tolta una breve descrizione delle varie firm, non c'è altro che una interminabile lista di risse con questa o quella squadra raccontate con dovizia di particolari, quanto credibili non è dato a me dirlo, ma quando si parla di 40 West Ham che fanno scappare 700 "Scousers" forse si tende un pochino (ma giusto un filo eh) verso l'esagerazione.

    5. This is an oral history of West Ham United notorious Inter City Firm. I found it interesting, terrifying and insane. The problem is that it's the same story over and over again. "We fought on the train, in the tube station, on the way to the match and during the match. THEN it WENT OFF after the match." As a look at the hoolie life, it's totally interesting, but this wouldn't be the first on the list. Wait a while to tackle this one.

    6. Hoped to get some more insight on the how and why of the I.C.F. However it was more a selection of old lads remembering fights. Wasn't that into the same old song over again about the fights. Nevertheless an ok read to get some more information about the football violence culture.

    7. Un classico del genere, una efficace risposta alle decine di saggi "sociologici" che hanno invano tentato di spiegare il fenomeno hooligan senza conoscerlo a fondo e basandosi solo sulle apparenze esterne. Una grande pecca é la traduzione, secondo me, davvero pessima.

    8. Not a great deal to differenciate it from many other such hooie books. There were six of us, one thousnd of them, yet we took 'em all and ran 'em. Diverting enough though.

    9. A violent look at the culture and lifestyle of a "firm" of soccer hooligans known as the I.C.F. in England during the seventies and eighties.

    10. Pretty graphic account of West Ham hooligans in the seventies and eighties. Enjoyable, though most of the beatings blend together after the first few.
