About this deal
His brother Mark, 43, from Ormesby, said up to 3,000 people could be at the funeral, including former hooligans from the various football “Firms” across the country. After years reading science fiction and then fantasy, I watched an interview on Parkinson with David Niven, but never thought much more of it till I spied his autobiography in the library I frequented far too often... My uncle worked with this man and he never mentioned it once until my uncle was sat in the cabin reading the book. Even then he was unassuming.
Because judging is not really what book reviewing is about. Well, I suppose it is, but not judging of the actions of the author, but the quality of the book and the story and the way that it's told. And it's mostly good. Both the large tomes I read on JFK and Lord Nelson changed my views on history - in so much as the largely potted versions we become used to are a disservice to actual events and how they shape those people in the time they become famous for.His book famously claimed he had been “shot at, glassed, stabbed, arrested and jailed” during his 20 years as a hooligan. Surveillance footage showed McIntyre standing near 'prolific hooligan' Derry Sargent after they travelled to the King Power Stadium in November for the 2-2 clash. Football- Brian Clough or Alex Ferguson(also started reading Robbo but never finished it as I don't generally read autobiography but was interesting)
True football fans are passionate about the game and the team, but want to enjoy the atmosphere in a calm and fun way.nowt to do with hooliganism,simply to do with a couple of bloody boring football supporters...and i was honestly very patient
I've always been as interested in things off the pitch as I am with things on it. I've seen the steady decline in atmosphere at grounds since the terrace days to the modern stadiums and at some stage would love to write a book on the impact all seater stadiums and money has had on the average football fan. It's had a big impact on sorting hooligans out but has it also had a negative effect on the hardcore fanatic? For a belly laugh, one two that will be familiar to older posters. David Nivens " the moon is a ballon" and "" stop the world I want to get off" is a great accountbof Hollywood in its heyday.I’ve just read Bob’s book and although enjoyable, I have read a lot better. Well worth a read and gives a good insight into the man.
