It was the look and the attitude that defined the UK in the 1980s. It was 'a culture unto its own' that brought with it an unforgettable style that was as important as the team. It was about confrontation and being involved, a good fight and being part of the mob. This was the Casual movement - a new breed of football fan, bringing with them a new way to terrorise the terraces. Scotland led the way, and of them all, Aberdeen football club's Aberdeen Soccer Casuals (the ASC) became the most notorious, most feared and most copied mob in the country. Told from a unique perspective at the heart of the action, this is their explosive and exhilarating story. Forthright, honest and passionate, this is the only account you'll ever need to read about the most formidable fans in Scotland. It's time to meet the Aberdeen Soccer Casuals.
Dan Rivers was an active member of the Aberdeen Soccer Casuals at the height of its glory. He retains an active interest in music - an important aspect of the Casual scene. He remains a life-long fan of Aberdeen Football Club and now lives in England with his wife and children.
