Description

Throughout the 70s and early 80s English football hooligans wreaked havoc throughout England and Europe until the authorities decided that enough was enough. Chelsea supporters were targeted, and one man in particular, Steve 'Hickey' Hickmott, was deemed to be public enemy number one and arrested. This explosive story, told in Steve's own words, reveals the humour, camaraderie and escapades of life on the terraces and charts his fight for justice in the face of a system heavily biased against him, but where his battle to clear his name was eventually won.show more
