Looking at how hooliganism continues to plague British football, former police officers Michael Layton and Bill Rogerson explore the continued effect of violence on the modern game. The Hooligans Are Still Among Us examines the damage wrought by hooligans travelling to and from domestic matches as well as within the stadium itself, the English disease abroad and the continuing factor of racist and sectarian motivations in fuelling the madness. Layton and Rogerson also paint a portrait of some of British football's most notorious firms, as well as looking at some of the potential solutions being put forward by the British police.
Fully up to date, including first-hand accounts of the madness that engulfed Marseilles as Russian, English and French fans clashed at Euro 2016, The Hooligans Are Still Among Us is an essential read for anyone interested in the pervasive influence hooliganism continues to have on the beautiful game.
