Excellent examination of football hooliganism in the UK
18 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

Danny Dyer takes you to meet the real top boys and hooligan firms throughout the UK. If you loved The Football Factory, and want to know more about some of the UK's top hooligan firms, this series does it with terrific coverage of the casual movement, the most intense derbies, and the tactics of the Old Bill in confronting football violence.

Dyer is the perfect presenter for the series, as he is an ardent fan of West Ham United, F.C., a club with passionate fans and a history of football hooliganism. That passion and love for the game come through with every fixture he attends and every pint he shares with the top boys.
