Synopsis

The Newcastle Bender Squad, The NME and The Gremlins are three of the most notorious firms in Newcastle United's football hooligan history. They have created match-day violence home and away over the last five decades and, in recent years, The Gremlins have become household names in the North East as an infamous gang of thugs with a thirst for fighting, with stories in the press fuelling their fierce reputation. Now it's time to set the record straight. Now it's time for them to tell their story, in their own words. With over forty contributors, this book is an intimate, no-holds-barred account of Geordie Aggro, told from the perspective of those who were, and still are, active. It is a social history of anti-social behaviour, looking at civil unrest in the region and the evolution of gang mentality over the last fifty years. Forget what you've heard on the terraces; forget what you've read in the press; and forget what you think you know: this is the real history of foul play in Tyneside, lifting the lid on Newcastle's closely-guarded hooligan firms for the first time. The fashion and haircuts may have changed, but the violence stays the same...
