He arrived to rally the troops, the main man in the InterCity Firm and his greeting passed into football fan history. Afternoon, gentlemen, the name's Bill Gardner. That introduction alone was often enough to provoke sheer terror in his opponents. He is a genuine legend to anyone who's ever stood proud on a football terrace, and no serious book on the culture would be complete without at least one mention of him. Now at last he's telling his own, long-awaited story, and many familiar faces have lined up to add their comments in this book.
Bill Gardner has featured in many of the most respected books on the great football firms and this is the first time he has told his own story. Cass Pennant is the author of the top ten book Congratulations, You Have Just Met the ICF and best-selling Cass. He co-wrote Rolling with the 6.57 Crew. Born in 1958, he was brought up in Erith, Kent. Cass is married with two children and lives in south-east London.
