  • Colin Blaney – It Just has to be Grafters, always will be no matter how well other books may sell, you see I had a plan which seemed simple as back then, E z just write a page every day then after 12 months I’d have enough for a book. But it never did work out that simple, took me 5 years but still saying that my last two books have both only took a year each, so I did finally manage after another 6 or 7 years to complete a decent page every day. Any new writers out there may want to take this tip regarding a page every day. The most satisfied feeling from the last 15 years being involved in writing has to be the feeling when seeing my very first pages I wrote from a Swiss prison cell for Red Army Years! I swear mate I must have read them over and over again for weeks on end, then it hit home fuck me if it’s good enough for Headline publishers in London then why not just do what I’ve always done in life, simply give it my best shot! the rest is history.

Manchester United's Red Army was the heyday of football hooliganism, so now meet the men behind the mayhem.

Colin Blaney now an author was once a grafter on a mission - As a 70s youth he joined the boot boys of Manchester United's Red Army as they rampaged through the country. As an adult he learned to 'dip', to sneak-thieve from tills and jewellery stores with his mad Collyhurst crew. But Europe offered the greatest lure. He and his mates served time in half the jails in Continental Europe - and then went back for more. Some people live for the day. A grafter lives for the minute.

In the mid-1980s, a young man from a tough Manchester estate exploded onto the soccer hooligan scene. Known to all as 'Hotshot', he was addicted to terrace violence and wanted to follow in the footsteps of the older United hooligans. He put together a gang of his own, the Young Munich's, and led through years of organised looting and violence.
