Now, I’ve read books like “Among the Thugs” and seen movies such as “Green Street Hooligans” and both confused me more than guided me in answering the question: what is soccer hooliganism?
I thought I was a fan – an avid supporter of my team, watched every game or at least made it paramount within my things-to-do. I wore hats, shirts, jerseys – you name it, I wore it. I assumed that is what “fans” did.
Apparently I was grossly mistaken.
