Barmy Army

Since the publication of EVERYWHERE WE GO in 1996, football hooliganism has received huge media attention. In BARMY ARMY, Dougie Brimson provides the definitive account of the subject, using new anecdotal evidence to look at the history of hooliganism and how it has evolved since the terrace battles of the seventies.
