Editorial Reviews

Review

“An immediate classic.” ―Culture, Sport and Society

“Garry Robson does his subject proud and in coining the term "Millwallism" has surely achieved a sociological first.” ―Philosophy Football

“A fine piece of sociological work ... which anyone interested in this field of so-called 'football studies' should read immediately.” ―Sociology

“A fine piece of work.” ―Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute

“With the partial exception of the work of Anthony King, it is, in my opinion, the single most penetrating, insightful, and original contribution to the understanding of soccar hoologanism in the United Kingdom to have been produced since the 1980s.” ―Cognitions, Emotions, and Identities

“There aren't too many sociological books that make their way into the Christmas stocking. In this, and many other respects, Garry Robson's study of Millwall football culture is exceptional.” ―Les Back, Reader in Sociology, Goldsmiths College, London

Robson is Research Fellow in Sociology and Anthropology at the University of East London.

Format: Paperback
I have become a soccer (football) fan in the last year. As a result I have begun reading many soccer books about it's history, it's fans, the clubs, etc... Having briefly learned about the colorful history of Millwall FC and it's fans I decided to find a book for further understanding. I found this book and decided to give it a try. That was, sadly, a big mistake. I am well educated and a voracious reader of many subjects, styles, and reading levels, but this book has me completely stumped. There are sentences, no, entire paragraphs that are utterly incomprehensible. It seems as if the author wrote these complicated passages full of uncommon words for himself and his peers, but not for the soccer audience. I wish I could quote various sentences to strengthen my argument but I'm not sure I can do that on this review. I'm sorry to be so rough, but this book is extremely difficult to read and understand. I slowly and deliberately tried to re-read and dissect passages, but most attempts were futile. I have no idea what the authors main goal was, but it certainly could not have been written with most soccer fans in mind, me included. This book is NOT easy-to-read, nor is it a comprehensible presentation of Millwall FC and it's fans. Maybe there needs to be a " For Dummies" version written. If you're a sociologist, and like soccer, then this book is for you. But if you're the common, soccer-loving fan, like I am, and love reading about it, then, sadly, I cannot recommend it.

Format: Paperback
Gary Robson's anthropological picture of this infamous South London club provides a rich incite into the lives of fans, historical background and social practices of Millwall followers. "No one Likes us, we don't care," the anthem of the club, is an appropriate title for this book. Robson attempts to go behind the mythologies and media stereotypes of fans as unreconstructed neo-fascist hooligans, and attaches more significance to working class identities. Robson, has managed to do a detailed piece of research into working class male culture without boring the reader to tears with academic jargon, and the early chapters of the book are particularly fascinating. The voices of South East Londoners shout out at readers off the page, and records urban memories of the Old Den and the move to the New den. Any football fan who finds this book will not be disappointed.
